Love the idea of installing artificial grass in your sloped garden, but aren’t sure it’s possible?
Fake grass is such a versatile product, and there’s no reason why it can’t be installed on a hill or slope. So, if you’ve been dreaming of the perfect garden, but have been worried you’ll need to level out your garden first, have no fear!
Installing artificial grass on a slope can help to eliminate the problem of a tricky-to-mow lawn, and it can also completely eliminate any issues you’re having with drainage – often caused by the fact that moisture tends to gather at the bottom of sloped gardens. No more muddy puddles!
Most installers should be happy to install fake grass on a slope, and in a way that is secure – so you won’t have to worry about your lawn moving.
If you’re considering installing fake grass in your sloped garden – or if your garden just happens to be on a hill – there are a couple of main options your installer will talk you through.
Depending on the severity of the gradient and the look you’re going for, the ground can either be:
Levelling out your garden is usually an option, but it can take more time (depending on the severity of the gradient), and can also be more costly if a lot of preparation is involved (for steeper slopes).
To stop the grass from moving or sliding, your artificial grass specialist will also lay timber borders along the top, and if possible, around the perimeter of the slope. This is a discreet way of ensuring your grass is 100% secure.
When considering what to do with your sloped garden, the main deciding factor should be how you’re planning to use it. Levelling the ground out may seem costlier, but if you’re going to get more use out of it, it could be worth it in the long run.
If you think artificial grass could be ideal to install in your sloped garden, we’d advise getting in touch with an artificial grass specialist who can talk you through your options, answer any questions you may have, and help you compare prices for different types of installation.
In order to do this, they’ll have to first conduct a site survey which requires visiting your home. They should also be able to show you client testimonials and examples of their work in similar scenarios, so you can get a better idea of what your finished artificial grass should look like.
