If you live in a flat or an apartment, then you may consider installing Synthetic Grass to your balcony. We have been asking by the people who live in them the installation process. For people living in apartments the balcony is the best place to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine within a few feet of the home. Apart from adding some colourful artificial pot plants to the balcony adding an artificial grass flooring can really brighten up what would otherwise be a potentially drab area.
In general we find that installing synthetic grass on balconies is a fairly straightforward task. Most of our customers do this as a DIY task however if you think that it’s hard or no time to do it then we here to do that for you. Please call us for free measure and quote or fill the inquiry form and one of our friendly customer service team members will be in touch.
Most of balcony floors are either concreate or tiles and have relatively flat surface with proper drainage. Some tips for you to check prior to installing Synthetic grass on your balcony
Check and understand the surface
You can lay synthetic grass on tiles, brick, wood decking or most of the hard surfaces. However, if your surface is a deck then make sure there are enough spaces between the planks or you may end up with a wood rot.
Make sure your surface is flat, if you do not have a proper flat surface then it’s ideal to use 6mm-8mm form underlay.
Select the correct product
It is really important for you to select the grass type you want on your balcony. You can see the product images and ask for free.
To install on a balcony, we follow the same procedures we use to lay on the garden. However there will be no digging or ground preparation but installing the end product is generally the same. You have the option to select glue around the perimeter of the area making sure to leave gaps in the beading for drainage or if you renting then keep some pots or chairs and the grass very unlikely move. However, it is really important to secure the entering points. As qualified synthetic grass installers we also take special care to fasten the grass around entrances to prevent trip hazards. When we install synthetic grass onto a timber surface we will nail around the perimeter. We try to avoid using glue as the glue will break away from the wood.
Installation Time Frame
If it is an average balcony it will take approximately half a day for us to complete the installation. Depending on the time of year you will be looking at between one to three weeks to get a booking. Please call us and sometimes we can prioritise your job. If you have a smaller balcony and if you confident doing it then it is fairly easy to lay the grass. Please see some of our videos. If you select DIY path then you can place your order online and get delivered or select click and collect option from our showroom.
