Here at Great Grass we recognise that there are a range of different ways to go about having an artificial turf installed. After all, it can quite a difficult situation to organise when you don’t really know what you are doing. Luckily the Great Grass team are experts when it comes to the installation of artificial grass and since so many mistakes are made as a result of people trying to do it themselves, we’re going to give you a few reasons why it is always best to call in the professionals…

Time and Energy

A professional artificial grass installation service can have a turf laid in record timing because they are experienced in the industry and years of installations has made them familiar with how a piece of turf moves and operates as well as allowing them to install turfs in a range of different weather conditions. Laying one yourself is going to take up valuable time and energy because you will not have this experience to rely on and whilst you may save money you will spent a lot of time trying to get it right.


Laying a turf is no funny business and it can be extremely stressful when you don’t know what you are doing. A professional has the higher ground here because they can not only lay a turf completely stress free, they can do it whilst multi-tasking! It is always best to hire an expert who knows what they are doing than causing yourself unnecessary anguish try to get the job done yourself just to pocket some extra cash.


Many people who chose the DIY route often underestimate how difficult it is to lay down an artificial turf. After all, it isn’t like laying down a rug! There are other vital layers that need to be added such as the filter layer, infill sand and levelling. If you over estimate your abilities or how easy it will be to complete an installation, you will likely end up with an uneven lawn that will require professionals to correct it and cost much more than it would have to hire professionals in the first place.
