We’re proud to over engineer all our installations. Belt and braces, that’s the best way.
We want your lawn to last… a long time.
This is how we do it:
Firstly the top layer of old turf is removed. This may vary depending on your requirements, and will be deeper in areas with clay soils.
The excavated area is then covered with a geo- stabilising membrane to prevent sinkage.
A solid frame work is built where required then concreted in to prevent lifting and loosening by worms.
The ground work for your Top Dog Turf acts as a bespoke urine and water filtration system. Tonnes of graded limestone and granite are barrowed in and layered with ZeoStop volcanic minerals providing a solid foundation.
The base of compressed limestone is now covered with granite and ZeoStop a volcanic odour reducing mineral.
ZeoStop is a natural, safe, odour reducing volcanic rock dust that absorbs ammonia and removes the bacteria from urine.
No weed membrane and no sand.
It’s standard practice to lay a geotextile weed membrane and sand under the grass carpet, but these really magnify the nasty niffs, by trapping the uric acid crystals and bacteria.
Essential for smaller dog toilet areas, dog runs, doggy day care facilities and areas where dog urine odours will be hard to control. Bone Dry Drainage Blocks are installed under then grass, creating an air void below your Top Dog Turf. Waste can be washed quickly through the grass and moved via a sub turf flushing system into drains or your sub soil.
We install the best artificial grass for dogs!
Top Dog’s latex free Turf is guaranteed against digging, fading and urine staining for 8 years.
We supply and install a selection of superb quality, natural looking compact grasses, that makes picking up solid waste easy. The fast draining polyurethane backing allows grass to dry quickly, and won’t absorb any pong producing pet pee.
The edges and joins are the weak spots, and dogs LOVE to dig and chew any lifting edges. We guarantee your dog can’t lift our edges! We use a unique system prevent loosening and lifting, or we’ll be back to sort it out!
The new grass is then groomed, brushed and fluffed, before the ZeoStop odour reducing infill is applied to the grass and power brushed deep into the fibres.
It absorbs liquid, and it’s negatively charged ions stop ammonia being released as a gas and causing unpleasant smells.
A hose down to settle any dust, a final check and tidy up and we’re finished.
If you have dogs artificial grass will be life changing. Dogs love it and you’ll love the lack of mud and mess. We love to share your photos on social media. Let’s make your Top Dog a star!
