Get An Artificial Grass Foundation for Your Backyard Needs

There are a lot of artificial grass installation companies out there. What sets us apart is that we do a turf installation and gravel sub-base combination to produce a beautiful, yet firm turf foundation that can be used as a hangout area, workout area, and much more! Our artificial grass foundation creates a base that is stable, level, and, most importantly, much more durable than a simple turf layer. 

If you’re looking for an artificial grass foundation for sports hobbies, a firepit, or even a pool pad, it’s essential that the turf installation is done on top of a sturdy sub-base, like a gravel foundation.

Plus, our artificial grass installation services include a weed fabric barrier that is placed between the ground and stone sub-base. This acts as a weed suppressant and foundation stabilizer. The weed fabric is also permeable, allowing for efficient drainage.

Sports

Installing a turf and gravel base can be a great way to practice your favorite sport. A batting cage, golf driving range, and plenty of other sport’s hobbies all work great on an artificial grass base. Practice your hobby sports right in your backyard!

Swingset Base

If you’re buying a swingset, you NEED a level base for the whole setup. This keeps your swingset from tipping and provides a safe playground for your kids. A turf swingset base is firm and level, which keeps your kids happy and safe.

Firepit/Hangout Area

Installing artificial grass can also be used for a firepit/hangout area. Enjoy relaxing with friends on a peaceful evening by a blazing fire, sipping hot tea and talking about bygone days. Better yet, what about s’mores and hot chocolate with your family!?

Pool Pad

Don’t you hate jumping out of your pool and landing on sharp stones? While a stone foundation under a pool is good for stabilization, it’s painful to walk on. Our artificial grass foundations solve this problem with a top layer of soft turf.

How Our Artificial Grass Foundations Are Installed

1. Excavate & Install Perimeter

The first step is to level the site. We do this by usually removing the first 6”-8” of dirt. To contain the stone and keep it compacted (which we do in step #3), we then install a pressure-treated wooden perimeter, which is secured to the ground with rebar.

2. Add A Stabilization Fabric

Once the perimeter is secured and the ground is leveled, we add a weed barrier fabric accross the entire pad that keeps the weeds suppressed and also keeps the ground separated from the stone. Plus, the fabric is permeable, allowing for efficient drainage.

3. Add Crushed Stone (Gravel)

We then add a 2”-4” layer of crushed limestone (gravel); we generally use “¾” clean” stone. Once the layer is added, we compact the stone to lock it into place. This provides a sturdy and stable base for the final step: turf installation.

4. Turf Installation

It’s now time to install the turf. We’ll cut the turf into sections and then tape them together at the seams. To ensure a secure turf base, we fasten the turf to the wooden perimeter. Once the turf is fastened, we tamp the surface to take out any wrinkles or bubbles across the pad.
