Rear Garden in Slough

Rear Garden Install 22/04/2016

We had an install for a rear garden in Slough, berkshire this week to help transform a tired lawn into a great play area for the children which was the customers main objective.

We visited the garden area to make a start digging and preparing the ground.

IMG_0103 (2)The lawn was looking very used and tired so it required a new Namgrass lawn install.
We dug out the soil and started to install our timber frame and also concrete plinths to make a area to allow us to install the base.

IMG_0129Once the base was added and compacted we added a thin layer of sand to help level out the area before adding 25mm shockpad.

After installed and cutting the shockpad it was time to get the Namgrass Green Horizon into place and rolled out.  Previous to this we rolled out the lawn to acclimatise which is recommended.
IMG_0149With both pieces of lawn laid out we lined up the join to make sure it fitted together nicely and then started to cut the over hang on the edges.  We then glued the join making sure it was secure and pressed down.

Afterwards we nail/glue the remaining perimeter area to secure this down into place.  Once we did this we cleared the area and added a light dusting of Kiln dry sand and then brushed the area using our Stihl brush which helps hold the pile up and brings the lawn to life.

We feel this installation will allow the children to enjoy the garden all year round.

Front Lawn Area

What better way to finish a Friday then to lay some Green Elise lawn.

We had a driveway and lawn area to complete starting on Wednesday.  The area was made up of tarmac and slate stones which was all to be removed and transformed into something great!.

DSC06669The frame for the lawn was made up of part tanalized timber and also concrete plinth.  These are installed first to the correct levels and then MOT type1 scalping is added for the base and compacted to create a solid ground.  We then added a thin layer of sharp sand to allow us to level out the the area to allow for the membrane layer to be added.

The membrane is added on top of the sand and then the lawn is placed on top.  This was a nice open area to let us roll out the lawn without restrictions such as trees or tight spaces.  We then got to work on cutting in all of the outsides to fit snugly.

Once all the grass has been cut correctly we glue the areas which lay on the concrete plinths and use nails on the timber frame to secure this all down.

I felt this lawn installed with the driveway was a huge transformation in only a short time.  The customer can now enjoy a maintenance free front garden for years to come.
