There are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to an artificial turf. After all, nobody wants to be caught short when the installation day finally rolls around. Here at Great Grass we like to think that our many years of experience make us the experts which is why we decided to put together this blog on when it best to install an artificial turf. From the sunny glow of summer to the chill of winter, read on to find out when the best time is once and for all…


Of course, the best time to organise your installation is during the day and here at Great Grass we know that our readers and clients are educated enough to know this without us telling you outright. On the other hand, you also have to make sure that your chosen time is mutually beneficial for all parties including family, pets, neighbours and the crew!


The seasons of the year can affect how easy it is to lay an artificial turf. For example, the ground can be quite solid in the colder months which may make the whole process longer however the sweltering heat off summer can have a similar effect too. Generally, it is wise to organise your turf installation for autumn as the weather is neither too hot nor is it too cold. On the other hand, contactors tend to be less busy December through to February so if you require flexibility this may be more beneficial to you.


Speaking of the weather you also have to consider how your garden reacts to certain climates. For example, if you know that you often suffer from water logging during autumn (perhaps the reason why you’re investing in a turf in the first place) it may not be wise to plan your installation for this season despite it being the most recommend time of year. You know your garden better than anybody so always follow your instincts!
