Damaged astroturf advice

Recommended Posts

It’s a really shaded spot. Previous lawn was moss and mud and it’s created a clean year round play surface for the children.

I had a customer who put it down because they couldn't get rid of leatherjackets that kept eating grass roots and ruining lawn.

I don't like it myself but I can see the point sometimes.

Really grateful for all the comments and advice. Have learnt a lot from a bad experience.

Did a medium sycamore removal over one a few weeks ago. Put a thick brash mat down, lowered everything I could and did manageable chogs from the last 15ft or so. 
I had also tarped  the whole area so make the clean up easier. Took a bit longer than normal but priced accordingly. Left it immaculate and customer was happy 👍

If he smashed a window pane or fence panel I’d want it replaced rather than glued and made to look fixed.
Imo if he'd smashed a window in a green house you'd expect the window fixed not a new greenhouse, same with repairing the AstroTurf. A professional repair should not be noticeable.

I've no knowledge on the subject at all but, what is the cost of a decent repair job and a full patch replacement?
