Roll on Turf and Artificial Lawn Installers Dublin

We offer a turfing service in Dublin where we can lay a new lawn for you and take care of any turf soil you may require. This can also include custom designs where we will combine your grass (artificial or roll on turf) with hardscaping such as pathways, natural stone bordered lawns and water features.

When you opt for roll on turf, the process is relatively simple. We will replace the area you specify, it does not matter if it was a grass area before or not. We will excavate it down to ensure we can create the right base for growing a nice new lawn.

Once its prepared, we will put in a new turfing soil which we will roll in to ensure its solid and that its level is set to the right heights. Under this soil, we will always put in a new foundation to make sure any water will drain through your lawn. Nothing is worse than a waterlogged lawn!

The new roll on turf is put on top of the prepared soil area where sometimes we will add sand on top of the soil before to make it a bit firmer. The lawn gets rolled on and over the next few weeks, the lawn will starting growing roots down into the base. As long as its kept watered, it should develop very fast with a seamless lawn in place after only a few weeks.

Another option for homeowners in Dublin is artificial grass. Its become fairly popular with more and more people looking for easy maintenance. The range of choices available now for artificial grass is significant. With choices on standard astra turf to luscious imitation grass which is soft to walk on and looks authentic.

The benefit to this is the lawn never needs cutting! During those winters months, the lawn will stay in pristine condition so come early spring, all you have to do is move your chairs back to your patio with no maintenance whatsoever required!

Why Choose Paving in Dublin

When it comes to creating your driveway in Dublin, the most common and reliable option is Paving Dublin. It is long lasting, durable and whilst costs a little more than tarmac, the overall durability and appearance makes it an outstanding option for your driveway.


With paving in Dublin, you have multiple options to choose from. Most of the paving suppliers all have similar styles of paving, for example Pedesta paving from Tobermore and Slane paving from Kilsaran are the same shape allowing the same designs and patterns.

The biggest difference between manufacturers is normally the finished colour of your paving Dublin. A brindle colour(red and black mixed) can have completely different shades on either type of paving.

We recommend always picking from the two main suppliers for paving Dublin of either Kilsaran or Tobermore since both provide long manufacturer guarantees on there paving products.


Block Paving can be laid in multiple styles with the most styles being herringbone laid either at 45 or 90 degrees. It can be laid in stretcher bond and basket weave as well although for stability, we recommend the herringbone for driveways in Dublin.

On pathways or patios you can pick whatever type of pattern you would like as the pressure from traffic will not affect it whatsoever.

There is cobble stone paving options available that can be laid in either 1, 2 or 3 sized paving blocks. The most popular option from Kilsaran is the Lismore range and the Tobermore option is the Tegula paving option.

This type of paving is laid in a staggered or offset pattern in lines across your driveway. You can choose to run the lines vertically, horizontally or at an angle.


During our free quote, we can go through the various Dublin paving options that are available and help to guide you picking a suitable driveway paving or garden paving option for your home.

The most important thing to remember is to pick the right paving contractor for your installation. With our team at O'Brien Driveways, you know you are getting a very well established paving company that will build your driveway or patio to a high standard and stand by their workmanship.
