    Artificial grass 5th Apr 17 at 5:40 PM
    Is I possible to lay an artificial lawn cheaply (well cheaper!) then getting the professionals in?
    If so, does anyone know the process? Bases etc

    The underneath of ours was levelled and compacted with crushed granite, no problems with drainage. 3/4 of our lawn used to be a swamp.
