Artificial grass is easier and cheaper to maintain compared to its natural counterpart. Using fewer pesticides and water saves you money and removes a source of pollution in the environment. In addition to the many advantages that come with synthetic grass, it is easy to install. In ten simple steps, you can have a greener maintenance-free lawn.
Step 1 – Remove dirt, sand, and earth to the required depth
In this step, you remove the existing grass from your yard. Make sure you remove the roots to avoid regrowth. Removing a specific amount of earth enables the pros to install the high quality porous fake grass.
Step 2 – Fit a weed barrier
A specially-designed weed barrier is put in place to prevent the growth of weeds on the new fake grass. It also prevents aggravation across the base of the artificial turf.
Step 3 – Fit the metal detail
When the specific handmade metal edge is placed, it gives the artificial turf a beautiful crisp edge on the surrounding. The metal work is only laid where the new grass is going to be put.
Step 4 – Make an aggregate base
An aggregate base is constructed using the dimensions of the new grass to be laid out. Afterwards, the area is compacted using the right set of equipment.
Step 5 – Level the base
When you place the synthetic grass, you don’t want to have bumps all over the lawn. For this reason, after compacting the soil, you need to level it. It provides a durable, and strong support for precise installation of the new turf.
Step 6 – Install the shock-pad
The shocks provide a durable cushioned layer beneath the lawn. The cushion ensures safety in the garden. It also provides a cushioned feeling to your feet when walking in the fake grass.
Step 7 – Fit the grass
After the shock pad is installed, it is time to lay down the turf. Using high-quality joints, you bind the sections of the artificial grass carpet, giving it a continuous look.
Step 8 – Apply glue to the edges
Using strong, durable and high-quality glue, seal the borders. Doing this preps the lawn to face high foot traffic and all weather conditions.
Step 9 – Close the seams
After applying the glue to the joints, it is time to seal off all the seams. With durable and visibly seamless finishing, you can be sure that your synthetic grass will stay for a very long time before coming apart.
Step 10 – Apply silica sand infill
Applying the silica sand infill provides protection and stability to the whole installation. The silica maintains the grass and prevents it from damage during harsh weathers.
