The secret is under the carpet!
1/ Select a flat area of grass, earth, concrete or Tarmac. Fill any obvious hollows with sand.

2/ Lay out the Sportsbase panels and interlock them together to form a continuous platform. The panels are manufactured from recycled plastic
and the hollow design provides cushioning for comfort and drainage for water removal.

3/ Roll out the all- weather carpet and fix around the perimeter with turf pins
 
WHY CHOOSE GFC SPORTSLAWN?

There are numerous companies offering many types of artificial grass carpets for transforming gardens, so why choose GFC Sportslawn?
If you are looking for a lawn that can be “used“ rather than just looked at, we are the only company that provide a system with a semi rigid base on which to lay the carpet. Not only does this give an additional shock absorbing layer for “fall over” games, it ensures a flat surface for balls to roll on, when, for example you are using the GFC Sportslawn for putting practice. In addition, tables and chairs do not indent the carpet, which creates unevenness most important of all, the patented GFC Sportslawn system keeps rainwater away from the lawn area. Fig 1 below shows what happens with normal construction.

You will be told to remove the turf from the area, screed 30mm of sharp sand all over and consolidate. This is not as easy as it sounds, and to achieve a flat finish is impossible, you will end up with a series of high and low spots. You then lay the carpet and sponge pad (if used) directly onto the sand. Water will accumulate in the low spots and over a year or two these areas will soften and if subjected to heavy wear, and the overall appearance will be uneven and stained.
Fig 2 shows the GFC Sportslawn system
The hollow Sportsbase panels are laid onto your lawn, having first mowed it as short as possible and filled any obvious hollows with sand. The semi rigid panels follow the contours of the ground, but compensate for unevenness providing a uniform platform on which to lay the carpet.
The hollow panels provide a 30mm deep reservoir below the carpet which quickly draws the water to the sides, leaving your GFC Sportslawn ready to play on within minutes of even heavy rainfall.
 
KIT SIZES
Kits can be made to suit the available space. However, it should be remembered that the Sportsbase panels are 3m x 250mm and the carpet is 2m or 4m wide.
 
 
Access restricted?
You can take the GFC Sportslawn Kit through the front door and out of the French Windows without mess. Rent your house or planning to move soon? No problem, take your GFC Sportlawn with you. The result is an all-weather area that can be used for leisure, play and sport ALL YEAR ROUND at a relatively low cost.
