When is the Best Time to Install Synthetic Grass?

When thinking about having artificial grass installed one may be wondering when the best time is to do so. Or if there even is a best time. In this article there is information to help one through the process of consideration. Certainly, each person is different so think on these few ideas we will be sharing along with your personal preferences and worries before committing to anything. In the end, if you get artificial turf installed and it is everything you want it to be is what’s most important.



Here are a few of important things to think about in choosing when to install artificial grass:



  • First consideration is always going to be convenience. When is the most convenient time for you? Nice Backyard always try to accommodate bookings to the customer’s need because after all, it is your garden. Holiday periods tend to be very popular for this reason with half term and the summer holidays being the peak season in the landscaping industry. This leaves other times of the year more open for availability, potentially giving you a quicker turnaround from quote to installation.


  • Second consideration is anticipation. If you have experienced problems with your grass in the past, it is likely that they might occur again. One example is if your garden is surrounded by deciduous trees it is likely the spring/summer months bring a lot of shade or it might be that the area you live in receives a lot of rain in the winter months making your garden a bit of mud bath. If you anticipate these problems happening, install in advance. That way you can save yourself a lot of the hassle of a problem lawn.


  • Third consideration is the investment opportunity artificial grass provides. Installing artificial grass has year-round benefits. If the object is to use your lawn all the time it almost doesn’t matter when you have it installed, because you reap the rewards whatever time of year it is. Whether spring, summer, autumn or winter the grass will remain green and usable.


In general, try to avoid scheduling installations during the rainy season. Many installations are put on hold when rain interferes with getting dirt out of the installation site. Rain can make installations less productive and quite possible affect the look of your yard when complete. It may surprise you to know but from a physical standpoint it’s much easier to install grass in the winter months with the ground being much softer than in the summer. If you’re planning on installing yourself, winter is generally considered the best time to do so.



Hopefully this has been some use to you, if you’re interested you can call Nice Backyard to get a quote.
