While not mandatory, we recommend installing a weed barrier fabric after the base preparation. This will ensure that weeds don’t sprout up through the turf. While weed turf is generally effective in preventing weeds, there is zero guarantee. We can do everything in our power to destroy them in terms of what is currently there, however, completely destroying root systems is nearly impossible. Weeds tend to sprout along the outer edges of the turf as it’s incredibly difficult to secure the edges. It’s important to note that while artificial grass is low maintenance that doesn’t mean you can install it and completely forget about it. Minor maintenance and care will still be needed over the lifetime for pristine looking turf.
However, if you have pets, that will be using the turf as their bathroom, we highly recommend against installing the weed barrier as the barrier can soak up urine and hold onto a foul smell over time that is difficult to remove. We recommend Urine Zero to remove the urine odors on your artificial turf.
