Installing a Soft Surfaces artificial turf cricket pitch involves several steps to ensure a proper and durable playing surface. Here's a general guide on how to install a cricket pitch with artificial turf:
Materials and Tools:
  1. Artificial Turf Rolls: Purchase high-quality artificial turf designed for cricket pitches.

  2. Sub-base Material: Usually, a layer of crushed stone or aggregate serves as the sub-base.

  3. Geotextile Fabric: Helps prevent weed growth and stabilizes the sub-base.

  4. Adhesive and Seam Tape: To join turf rolls together.

  5. Shock Pad (Optional): Provides additional shock absorption.

  6. Infill Material: Typically, rubber granules or sand, to enhance stability.

  7. Compacting Equipment: Vibrating plate compactor or roller.

  8. Leveling Equipment: Laser level or string level.

  9. Cutting Tools: Utility knife or carpet cutter.

  10. Edging Material: Metal or plastic edging to secure the turf.

Installation Steps:
  1. Site Preparation:

    • Clear the area of any debris, rocks, or vegetation.

    • Excavate the soil to the required depth, ensuring proper drainage.

  2. Sub-base Installation:

    • Lay a geotextile fabric over the excavated area to prevent weed growth.

    • Spread and compact the sub-base material evenly.

    • Ensure the sub-base is level and has a slight slope for drainage.

  3. Shock Pad Installation (Optional):

    • If using a shock pad, roll it out over the compacted sub-base.

    • Secure the shock pad in place using adhesive or tape.

  4. Artificial Turf Installation:

    • Roll out the artificial turf over the prepared sub-base.

    • Trim the turf to fit the playing area, leaving extra material along the edges.

    • Use adhesive and seam tape to join turf rolls securely.

  5. Infill Application:

    • Spread the infill material (rubber granules or sand) evenly over the turf.

    • Brush or rake the infill into the turf fibers to ensure even distribution.

  6. Compaction:

    • Compact the entire surface using a vibrating plate compactor or roller.

    • This helps to settle the infill and ensure a stable playing surface.

  7. Leveling:

    • Use a laser level or string level to ensure the pitch is level and free of bumps.

  8. Edging:

    • Install edging material around the perimeter to secure the turf in place.

  9. Final Inspection:

    • Inspect the entire installation for any issues, ensuring the turf is secure and the playing surface is consistent.

  10. Maintenance:

    • Regularly groom the turf to maintain its appearance and playing characteristics.

    • Remove debris and monitor infill levels.


It's crucial to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for the specific artificial turf you are using, as installation requirements may vary. Additionally, consulting with a professional installer or contractor experienced in synthetic turf installations can ensure a successful project.
