Why is weed barrier important for your artificial grass install?
Take a look at what happens when you don't use weed barrier under the aggregate layer and up the side-walls of your artificial grass base installation.
The featured shows the area under an artificial grass install that is butting up to a driveway which is washed and blown off of debris, on a regular basis.
What happens to all the run off, dirt, stones and other debris? It gets caught at the edges of the artificial grass!
When it accumulates - it's hard to get rid of, if there's no fabric on the edge to protect the base layer. Click Here for IMAGE
It only needs 4-6 inches of weed barrier fabric, folded over the top of base, to help make outside edges stable and easy to groom.
Also - the dirt, soil and stones that accumulate at the edge encourage ant, worm and weed infestations, over time. Take a look at our building specification - you will see we use weed barrier fabrics on every artificial grass project! Click Here for IMAGE
It can even help with rodent control - acting as a barricade to pesky rodents; moles, voles and gophers!
This can be avoided properly installing weed barrier fabrics for your artificial grass project!
