Materials Used

  1. Astroturf (Artificial Grass):

    • Provides a consistent, green appearance throughout the year.
  2. Base Materials:
    • Included crushed stone and sand to create a stable foundation.
    • Ensured proper drainage and a level surface for the Astroturf.

Construction Stages

  1. Site Preparation:
    • Removal of old tiles and rubble from the patio area.
    • Excavation of the ground to create a level base.
  2. Base Installation:
    • Laying a sub-base of crushed stone and compacting it to provide a solid foundation.
    • Adding a layer of sand on top of the sub-base to create a smooth surface for the Astroturf.
  3. Astroturf Installation:
    • Cutting the Astroturf to fit the dimensions of the patio area.
    • Laying the Astroturf over the prepared base and securing the edges to prevent movement.
    • Brushing and infilling the Astroturf to ensure it remains in place and looks natural.
  4. Finishing Touches:
    • Trimming the edges of the Astroturf to fit perfectly around the patio’s perimeter.
    • Cleaning the area to remove any installation debris and ensuring a tidy finish.

Final Outcome

The completed project successfully transformed a neglected patio into a vibrant and functional outdoor space. The new Astroturf surface provides a lush, green appearance that is visually appealing and practical. The patio is now a low-maintenance area suitable for relaxation, play, or entertainment. The use of artificial grass ensures durability and ease of upkeep, making it an ideal solution for homeowners looking to enhance their outdoor spaces.


This project demonstrates the effectiveness of using Astroturf to revitalise outdoor areas. The transformation from a broken, unusable patio to a beautiful, green space highlights the importance of proper planning and quality materials. This case study serves as an excellent example of how artificial grass can be used to create attractive and functional outdoor spaces with minimal maintenance requirements.
