How to Plan and Buy Your Artificial Lawn

Here at PermaLawn, we know that an artificial grass lawn project requires some planning in advance to make the most of the investment and the installation. We serve both trade synthetic lawn installers and the DIY enthusiast and offer a range of tools to make the planning easier and buying your artificial grass super-simple and stress-free.

Help with planning your artificial lawn project

The first step is to sit down and plan your artificial lawn project. Once you have a strong project plan in place, then the rest can fall into place much more easily.

Sketch out your project to work out which areas of the garden you want to cover with synthetic lawn, then carefully measure the area. You can then work out the quantity you will need for your project.

To get you started, take a look at the PermaLawn Project Planner guide.

Working out the quantities

One of the most common questions we receive is, 'How do I know how much artificial grass to buy?'
As every project is potentially unique, this is a valid question, but also one that is tricky to answer. This hinges precisely on the shape, size and design of your garden project.

Careful measurements are the key here. Once you have the length and the width (maximum) of your surface area, you simply multiple the length figure by the width figure.

To make this part of the project easier for our customers, we have developed the artificial lawn square metre calculator. Simply enter your measurements (checked twice!) in the boxes provided, and the tool will do the rest for you. There are options for both metric and imperial measurements.

Selecting your artificial lawn

PermaLawn has an extensive range of high-quality artificial lawn to choose from. There are different yarn types for different garden uses, ranging from ultra-hard-wearing options for sports and heavy family use, to the ultimate in the golf course-type weave.

If you can't decide which yarn type is best for your needs, PermaLawn are happy to send you a free sample and the PermaLawn brochure.

With years of industry experience and knowledge, the PermaLawn teams are very happy to listen and discuss any ideas you may have about your artificial lawn project and can advise you about yarn types and grasses for all types of use.
