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 to a minimum of 120mm, 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 from heavy duty, rot proof recycled plastic batten and lumber 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 dolomitic lime are barrowed in and layered with volcanic minerals providing a solid foundation.
The base of compressed limestone is now covered with lime dust and ZeoStop Lite 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.
An essential addition for dog runs, doggy day care facilities, and areas where dog urine odours will be hard to control. Geo cell matting is 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 new or existing drains.
We install the best artificial grass for dogs!
Top Dog Turf is guaranteed against digging, fading and urine staining for 10 years.
An amazingly realistic looking compact grass, that makes picking up solid waste easy. The fast draining 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, so we screw, glue and nail all edges to prevent loosening.
The new grass is then groomed, brushed and fluffed, before the ZeoStop Max, 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.
Waiting 24 hours for the concrete and glue to dry before running riot on your new lawn.
Your Top Dog Turf installation will cost you from £75.00 per square metre to include groundworks, labour and your Top Dog Turf, depending on design, access and your chosen package ( see above )
