The installation work for 2G sand-filled and sand-dressed surfaces usually starts with excavating the ground and putting in a porous stone sub base with sand infill layers. The stones for a 2g sand filled turf pitch are angular which means the fit together to form a strong foundation, but also allow water to pass through them for effective drainage.
A macadam base will then be laid onto the stones to give the rest of the surface a smooth and durable, clean layer. Quite often, a sports shock pad will be installed onto the macadam to give shock absorption and to act as a protective underlay for the artificial grass carpet. The final stage will be rolling out the 2G synthetic carpet, glueing it down and then distributing the sand infill throughout the facility. This will ensure users of the pitch will have the highest playing qualities available.
