Finer Details

To create this FIFA approed pitch, the current area was excavated using diggers and grab hires to remove the muck away. The area was installed with metal edging creating a border to retain the sub-base of the area and separating the football wired fencing.

A geotextile membrane was added with a sub-base of 100mm deep which is circa 350 tonnes of material including MOT Type One and Grano/Granite Dust. An additional geotextile membrane is added on top to provide stability and prevent further weed growth.

It required 5 team members to move the artificial grass into place and install the artificial grass with permanent artificial grass lines. Afterwards a rubber crumb infill was installed to provide a great ball bounce and weight/stability for the grass to be durable for the primary schools heavy sport.

Lastly, football goals and fencing were installed for the completed finish.

I was nervous about taking the leap to artificial grass due to cost and not really knowing a local company. I found My Lovely Lawn through the internet and initial contact was made by Adam. All through the process he was helpful and informative without being pushy. Samples of the grass were sent before i had committed. A site visit followed where i was able to meet Adam and discuss in more detail what I'd like. He also advised on the merits of the different grasses. Once I'd committed an installation date was quickly agreed upon. I liked that we used a WhatsApp group to communicate. He arranged delivery of skip, grass and aggregates which all arrived as planned. Workers arrived as scheduled and completed my job in 2 days. Im really pleased with the new look. On completion i received a maintenance tools and tips pdf, which I'm yet to read together with my 10 year warranty pdf. The whole team i dealt with were great. There even took care by placing boarding down when emptying aggregates so as not to damage my driveway. All in all a great experience. Professional and personable.
