Football Mad!! Mini 4G Football Pitch!!

This lovely football mad family came to Elite Lawns with the idea of having a mini football pitch in their back garden for their footy loving boys, this was as exciting for us as it was for the family, we love challenges.

This was the family’s garden before we started;

A huge 190 square meter area to create a fantastic space for the kids and their friends to enjoy a quality kick about.

We had to remove the existing grass and dig it all out to install our base required, as the parents still wanted the mini football pitch to look like grass and part of the garden, as natural as possible, with this in mind the family opted for TigerTurf Aspire.

All the materials and dig out was done by hand;

This consisted of a new hardcore sub base being evenly distributed and Whacker plated, a strong long lasting, durable weed membrane, a top level of a concreting sand mix, levelled and screeded, all to create an excellent drainage system for the artificial grass and help prolong the longevity of usage.

Here are some during pictures;

So as you can see it’s already a transformation, the groundwork plays a key essential role when fitting artificial grass and we pride ourselves on getting our levels and bases accurate for each job we carry out, big or small.

It’s now ready for grass!!

TigerTurf Aspire is perfect for playing football on, its designed as the ideal product for energetic families as it has strong durable blades that react well to heavy usage and still look like new. Aspire has two strong contrasting green colours, giving the appearance of a well-kept lawn. This product has two specialised yarns unique to TigerTurf that will keep the grass standing up straight and true. 

Lets see the grass fitted;

And Finally, the finishing touches;

We installed an 8ft high galvanised green fence around the entire perimeter with an access gate and tanalised treated kick board;

If you had football mad kids and they came home from school and saw this mini 4G football pitch in their own back garden, they would probably think it was an early christmas present or something.

It’s an absolutely fantastic transformation and they will be able to enjoy it for many, many more years to come.
