Artificial Grass Preston, Landscaping project

Work completed June 2019


Low maintenance gardens in in this summer. We have just finished another and its one of our favourites. 

John and his wife recently moved into a new build house with their dog Ollie. They are both busy people and don’t have time to look after a lawn so they opted for premium artificial grass and some low maintenance plants and shrubs. 

Its a minimal design which maximises the useful space whilst still looking green and and having a nice atmosphere. 

Long lasting

We use tried and tested methods and high quality materials to make sure our artificial grass goes the distance. 


What we have done

  1. Dug out, levelled and prepared the area. As you can see in the photos, we create a compacted, level base of sand to give the artificial lawn a firm but comfortable feel.
  2. Raised sleeper boarders with decorative shrubs and slate gravel. Choosing low maintenance plants gives the garden a designer, minimalist feel. It looks open but stylish. 
  3. Installing the grass. A wooden frame is built and anchored around the area. This is filled with sand, flattened and then covered with a weed proof membrane. The artificial grass in then carefully cut and measured to shape. The final stage is covering and fixing the fake grass to the wooden frame.
  4. The sleepers to you can see on the grass are temporarily  holding the adhesive in place to ensure a flawless finish when they come off.
