Sinking Artificial Grass

Sunken turf is a common problem that appears when the layer of stone aggregate underneath the turf shits, leaving holes in the layer beneath the surfacing. That detracts from the visual beauty of your landscaping and can pose tripping hazards. This is not fixed by simply applying more stone to the area. However, it is a relatively simple problem to fix and will help maintain safety.
