What kinds of foundations can artificial turf be installed on?

Artificial turf is used in a wide variety of applications, from soil to wood flooring and concrete. So, if you've always wanted to know which surface foundations the artificial turf can be installed on, and how to handle different surfaces? Then the next Vita artificial turf will introduce the following common basic and application methods.

If the artificial turf is placed on an unstable surface, it will move over time and the surface will become uneven. The appearance and stability of artificial turfgrass throughout its life cycle depends on the underlying layer that is properly prepared. Installing a fake lawn is a big investment, so it's important to do this correctly.

For soils, it is recommended to use a suitable, stable sub-base – be sure to remove 60-80 mm of soil before preparing the foundation and spreading new artificial turf, as this will result in a perfect installation. Another option is to use 30mm to 40mm of gravel dust, and the required excavation is about 50mm.


Make sure the concrete surface is smooth, dry and clean. Check the level of the surface to see if there is any unevenness, if any, to flatten the raised parts, as these protrusions can be seen through artificial grass. If the drainage is not smooth, please make some holes in the concrete. For the sake of comfort, we can install the shock pad cushion under the grass.

Wooden deck

Make sure the floor is stable, clean, dry and reprocessed.

When installing artificial grass on the deck, it is recommended to install the foam pad. This will prevent the artificial grass from being compressed into the gap between the panels. Tighten or stick the foam pad to the perimeter floor, install the artificial grass as described in the guide, and then tighten or stick the grass to the floor with a foam pad. Don't screw it too tight, otherwise it will catch the artificial grass.

Rooftop (Rooftop)

Make sure the roof is stable, clean and dry. The perfect foundation is the perfect solution for roof installation as it provides a solid, lightweight and well-drained surface. The panel has built-in clearance for quick drainage and can be snapped together in a short time. The bottom plate can be easily modified and cut using a hand-held circular saw

What is the size of the artificial turf? Will the shape and size of different venues have an impact on the installation process?

VITAGRASSartificial grass is generally 2m or 4m wide per roll and can be supplied on request. All you have to do is measure your site and calculate the width and length you need. The latex backing of the plastic turf means that it can be easily cut into any size or shape. The installer will bypass any obstacles, such as play equipment, trees and trails, so that the lawn naturally surrounds it, just like a real lawn.

In fact, artificial grass is ideal for injecting color into a balcony or terrace. If you have a large garden, you can spread a few rolls of lawn on top of it, adding a green spring feel to your garden. In other places (including football fields, schools and sports fields) you can also use artificial grass, not just private gardens, so you can rest assured that no matter what size or shape of your site, we can help you install it. Customer satisfaction is at the heart of what we do.
