Installation

If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth over doing…

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:

Dog Friendly Turf Installation

1: Digging for victory

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.

2: No sagging

The excavated area is then covered with a geo- stabilising membrane to prevent sinkage.

3: Hold it together chaps

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.

4: Boys with barrows

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.

5: Magical Minerals

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.

Top Dog Turf Artificial Grass Installation**Top Dog Installation Package Only ** Geo cell air drainage

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.

6:  Time for Turf

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.

7: Nailing down

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.

8: ZeoStop infill

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.

9: Wash and brush up

A hose down to settle any dust, a final check and tidy up and we’re finished.

10: Now the hard part

Waiting 24 hours for the concrete and glue to dry before running riot on your new lawn.
