Benefits of Hiring a Professional to Install Your Artificial Grass

While some homeowners decide to attempt their artificial grass installation themselves, it is definitely worth considering the benefits of hiring a professional to do the job.

Although it could save money fitting fake grass yourself, there is a certain art to installing it correctly and often mistakes are made when taking the DIY approach. There are several benefits to taking a back seat and letting the professionals take care of the installation.

1. Professional Know-how

While some may be up for a challenge, many don’t realise how difficult it can be to install artificial turf. There is no one-size fits all method, and many techniques can be used depending on the job at hand.

Professional installers have the knowledge and expertise required to complete the job without mistakes, using their valuable experience picked up throughout their previous work.

Attempting the install yourself could lead to additional costs due to mistakes being made and having to admit defeat and call in a professional.

2. The Tools for the Job

Professionals come with all the tools required to complete the artificial grass installation. For example, vibrating plate compactors to ensure sub-base material is sufficiently compacted, turf cutters and other smaller tools.

If you’re considering going down the DIY route to try and save costs, it is important to consider all the additional cost of buying or hiring the required equipment. By the time you have spent out on all of this, is it really worth going down this route?

3. Save Time and Energy

Professional installers will be able to lay the artificial lawn in no time because of their experience and expertise in the industry. They’re used to the heavy lifting and manual nature of the work, as well as working in all sorts of weather conditions to get the job completed.

Attempting to lay the turf yourself could be very time consuming as you won’t be fully versed in the process. The work could also be physically demanding if you’re not used to this kind of work on a regular basis.

4. Less Stressful

Like anything, installing artificial grass can be extremely stressful if you don’t know what you’re doing. You’ll be worrying about whether you’re doing it right, not wanting to ruin your artificial grass, or getting it done in time for that garden party you have next weekend!

A professional will take this unnecessary stress away from you and get the job completed quickly and correctly first time.


In conclusion, we would always recommend hiring a professional to install your artificial grass. This will ensure a quality installation that will be completed in good time, without having to put unnecessary time, energy and stress in yourself.
