We are often asked whether it is possible to lay artificial lawn on top of concrete paving slabs. The simple answer to this question is that not only is it possible to lay fake grass on top of concrete pavers, it is also very easy to do so. You will need to glue the strips of artificial lawn to the concrete base.
Can you put artificial grass on top of paving slabs?
Typically, artificial grass is installed to replace an existing garden lawn. But it’s also great for transforming old, tired concrete patios and paths. Artificial grass can be installed on top of plain old concrete, block paving and even patio paving slabs.
Do you need underlay for artificial grass on concrete?
We recommend that customers always install underlay when laying artificial grass on concrete. If children are going to be using the area, or you are going to play sports on it, underlay is a must. If you are not planning on using it much then you may get away without it if the surface is level enough.
Can artificial turf be installed over concrete?
Artificial turf can be glued down directly on top of the concrete using an artificial grass adhesive. It’s important that the concrete area is clean before beginning installation so that the adhesive will properly bond with the concrete.
What can artificial grass be laid on?
We can lay artificial grass onto most surfaces, regardless of whether your installation is a domestic garden or part of a corporate office. Turf, soil, concrete, tarmac, paving and decking are all areas you can lay artificial grass. If you have a balcony or roof terrace, artificial grass is also easily installed.
Is it worth using underlay for artificial grass?
If you are installing artificial grass onto an existing surface, such as concrete, then we would highly recommend that you install a foam underlay.
