Self Install our Lincslawns Artificial Grass in your Lincolnshire Home

If you feel confident you can lay your Lincslawns artificial grass yourself then you can save yourself some money, but make sure that your money is well saved by following the below instructions carefully.

Our artificial grass installation guide will help you plan how much artificial grass you’ll need, how much it will cost you and how to best lay your new grass.

Plan your artifcial grass self installation

Step 1

Work out the size of the area you want to replace. Calculate this in square metres by measuring the length and width at the furthest points.

Step 2

Use a blank grid to draw a rough scaled design of your garden and lawn area onto, this will help you work out how many rolls of artificial grass you’ll need. Position the rolls so that you have a minimum number of joints. Allow some extra lawn length for a small amount of wastage depending on the design of your garden and how the rolls are laid.

Our artificial grass is supplied in 2m (200cm) and 4m  (400cm) widths (see drop down box on the shop page for availability) and any lengths up to 25 metres. Remember, all rolls must be laid in the same direction to give the best finish and ideally so that you are looking into the pile.

Step 3

Buy the amount of artificial grass, fixings, accessories and tools you require on our online shop.

Fitting Artificial Grass on a Soil or Sand?

For best results, you should prepare a base of compacted Type 1 MOT limestone and lay your turf on a 25mm layer of compacted sharp sand. To maintain levels it may be necessary to remove an equivalent amount of the topsoil. It is unwise to leave vegetable material under your new grass as this will rot down unevenly.

The ground or sand should be compacted. For smaller areas you can do this with the back of a shovel or builders plank, or for larger areas use a vibrating plate compactor which can be hired at most equipment hire centres.

Fitting Artificial Grass on Decking or for Temporary use?

Covering your tired decking with Artificial Grass is a perfect, simple and effective way of brightening up your outdoor space. Not only will it transform the look of the garden, it will also provide you with a soft, dry and usable space which can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Fitting artificial grass onto decking is a lot easier than you may think! Before laying out your new lawn, be conscious of any loose debris or moss on your decking – ensure it is clean and free from anything that is likely to show under the artificial grass.

Fitting Artificial Grass on Concrete or Patio?

Firstly, make sure that the surface to be covered is clean and smooth. A self-levelling compound may be required to remove surface imperfections that may show through to the top surface especially on thinner pile height products. This can be purchased from DIY stores.


To provide a softer more absorbent feel, loose lay under the grass a 12mm exterior under felt available from our store. Ensure that any joints are neatly butted together. Lay, join and trim the artificial grass as you would for decking. 

Fitting Artificial Grass on Flat Roofs?

It is important that the roof will weight bear and also important not to puncture the waterproof membrane. Loose laying will avoid this. 

Our Aqua Bond adhesive will provide a more permanent fix but you should take local professional advice prior to making any permanent fix to flat roof.
