Measure up for Astro Turf
Before consulting a supplier you should determine what quantity of artificial grass is needed for the lawn. Astro turf is typically sold in widths of either four or two metres and lengths of up to fifty metres. The grass needs to be seamed down the entire length (the longest side) so you must plan your measurements accordingly. See the install section for more details once you have planned out what synthetic grass dimensions are required.
Consider Your Options
Several approaches should be considered when measuring for irregular shaped gardens. You may discover that using a greater number of smaller pieces reduces waste. Conversely, a reduced quantity of larger grass pieces could be more efficient.
Some good astro turf suppliers will offer a pre-sale service to measure your garden and price the job for you. This will prevent problems due to inaccurate plans when your artificial lawn installation begins.
Save Money On Artificial Grass
Consider adding water features or rock gardens before ordering your artificial grass. If planned correctly, you could spend less money on astro turf and make your garden more interesting!
