What sand do you put under artificial grass?

Is there any specific sand I need to use?

1 Answer

You don't put any sand under artificial grass, as the sands are too loose, if you use sand in your sub base, you will lose the solid integrity. Instead, we recommend using sands on top of the turf as infills which will hold the turf down with extra weight and also help turf blades to stand up better. For your base under artificial grass, you will need to have 2-2-1/2" drain rock, on top of which you need to use 1-1/2" decomposed granite or equal, compacted at 90% so you will have a solid yet smooth base to work on. Again, we don't recommend to use any sand under artificial grass. For installation details, please visit this link:

We have silica sand infills for my artificial grass, which provides stability to protect my turf from wrinkles or folds.
