Do I need underlay for Artificial Grass?
You should never lay artificial grass directly on top of existing grass or soil. Artificial Grass should always be laid on top of a sub base that can consist of either soil or a type of sand. This will ensure best results when installing your new artificial lawn.
At Australian Outdoor Living all our artificial lawns are installed on top of a layer of dolomite. Dolomite is a substance that we use to ensure that your lawn stays flatter for longer. We use dolomite due to its durability – if we were to use dirt or regular sand your lawn would develop lumps after a couple of years.
The base of dolomite is a standard thickness of 50mm but customers do have the option to request a thicker layer.
To answer this question… Artificial Grass does not need an underlay, however it is recommended that it is laid on top of a sub base that generally consists of a soil or type of sand. This will ensure that your Artificial Turf doesn’t develop bumps over time.
