You can install artificial grass almost anywhere, including muddy area. As you might know that some areas are not suitable for real grass to grow such as muddy areas or shaded areas, artificial turf will be your perfect solution! Regardless what areas you install the turf, you need to make sure to follow the installation instructions:

In most cases, if your installations are done properly, you will never have issues for years to come.

I think it'd be hard to install it on a muddy area so I suggest that you hire professionals to do it for you.

That's good. We have to put some soil or gravel on it maybe so the foundation of the artificial grass is strong.

Just make sure that the mud's consistency is not too runny/thin

If your muddy area is too deep, you might not want to consider artificial grass. Typically we recommend to excavate about 4” of soil before putting in the sub base and laying the grass, therefore if your muddy area is deeper than that, you don’t want to have artificial turf there.

I see, then we need to put some soil on it.
