One of our most frequently asked question at Lion Lawns is ‘What is the best size for my artificial lawn?’ Well there are many different ways that you can install your astro turf grass lawn but in order to be the most cost-effective, we are talking why sticking to multiples of four is the way to go!
Why 4 Metres?
Usually rolls of landscaping artificial grass for domestic gardens comes on 4 metre width rolls, and this tends to be industry standard. Therefore, by sticking to 4metres, you are avoiding cut loss. So if your garden is 4metres, 8 metres or 12 metres in width, you are being the most cost-effective with your install. Remember artificial grass can be joined with specialist tape and glue which makes larger areas possible. The length of your garden doesn’t matter how long this is as rolls usually come up to a huge 4 x 25metres. So, if you have a 4 metre by 17 metre gardens, this will also be a cost-effective option.
