Hi milly67 If your pea shingle is laid direct on a hard surface eg concrete or tarmac the artificial turf could be laid direct on it with a suitable underlay - this assumes that there is a fall over the area. If the shingle is on a loose material eg mud then about 3-5cm of sharp sand should be laid before the underlay. If you are ok with an increase in land levels then the shingle does not need to be removed. Regards S
Hi milly67 If the land is flat it will have to be built up to form a slight dome and it will need about 5cm of compacted sharp sand before underlay and artificial turf is laid. The astroturf generally comes in 2,4 and 5m widths so if either dimension is bigger than this a join will be needed. Make sure the join goes on an area of the least wear. Regards S
