Install an Artificial Grass Lawn


Pre-installation  Remove existing materials. Are there any unwanted things like

weeds, soil, or other substances above ground? You need to uncover the underneath wiring, irrigation system, and pipes.  If you have installed some sprinkle system, drainage or other

irrigation systems, then you may have to relocate them or modify the existing lines.  When there are any wiring or electrical sprinklers, move them

away from the hardscape. You eliminate the chances of accidental damage by doing this.  Experts suggest installing bender board. It gives a clean line and

separation for the plants or bed.


Prepare the base

ď‚— Install the base material. It is a mix of sand and gravel. Apply a

coating of three inches or more. ď‚— Level and drainage system are important aspects while preparing

the base.


Compaction

ď‚— It is achieved by vibrating and tamping the gravel. Roll it to

create a solid base. Additional leveling and grading are done at this time.


Fitting the turf  The turf should be over cut by one inch along the edge. Thus, you can tuck

the turf well.  For seaming, proper seaming tools should be used. Line it up well.  The cutting has to be done in an s-shape so that the turf pieces don’t push

each other’s angles. If it happens, then it gives an illusion of discoloration and impacts the appearance.

 The ideal distance to install nails is six inches. 

It prevents the movement of the turf. Make sure the nails are not driven deeply in the ground. It will pull down the turf and create dimples on the surface.

 U-nails should be installed at every six inches.


Tuck the edges well

ď‚— You should hide the edges of the turf by using a metal bar

against the edging border or hardscape. Thus, you get a plush, clean look. It appears near identical to the natural grass.


Apply filler ď‚— The grains of the grass needs to be pulled to stand up using a

heavy bristled brush. You should apply infill sand after that. It is a safe option for pets or kids. ď‚— Spread the granules through the installation evenly. Filler acts as

a balance to keep the blades of the turf upright.


Grooming

ď‚— Use a power brush to groom the artificial turf. Granules are

inserted into the base for stability and settlement. Remove the debris if any. Your artificial grass lawn is ready.
