3: Can an artificial grass stop a mole infestation ?

Artificial grass is definitely one of way of solving your mole problem. Installing artificial grass involves some digging and the use of equipment such as a whacker plate which make noise and vibrations which ensures the earth is very well compacted. As well as this we can put down a mole barrier in combination with aggregate materials which are too strong and compacted for moles to burrow.The final layer of aggregates are not an ideal environment for moles to burrow through, so they are deterred once more from coming up to the surface.

Installing artificial grass is a humane way of dealing with a mole infestation that not only deters moles from returning but also repairs the damage they have done. It can be difficult to re-seed a lawn that has been plagued with mole holes and tunnels, with earth churned up and brought to the surface. By installing artificial grass you have the ground leveled with a secure draining base installed and a lovely green lawn all year round.

One of the main reasons to buy artificial grass is to save yourself from muddy, lawns. With a Multiturf installation we always lay an aggregate sub-base when installing to ensure easy and free draining layer under the grass.

After the existing lawn and dirt is removed to a depth of 70mm, a sub-base consisting of G 5 materials with a layer of processed sand . P Sand is the most porous type of aggregate as it is made from permeable materials. This covers the entire lawn area at an even and consistent level ensuring a stable draining base for years to come. The final level is compacted heavily to ensure no movement of the base materials over the coming years.

The aggregate base is especially important if play equipment or trampolines are being used.
