Remove Existing Grass
Step 1. Before you begin, clear the area of rocks, shrubbery and any debris. Remove any and all existing grass where you would like to install your Artificial Grass. You want to be sure that you clear everything creating a flat surface of dirt. You can manually do this with a shovel and rake.
Next Install Your Base
Step 2. Install Your Base! If you're covering concrete, often times a foam underlay is used. Be sure to use the proper type for the Artificial Grass you've chosen. Another popular material used is a layer of approximately 1/4-inch of crushed granite creating a semi-smooth gravel surface. This acts as both a barrier between the dirt and Artificial Grass and also provides proper drainage filling any gaps you may have missed.
Roll out your Artificial Turf
Next roll out your Artificial Grass! When you receive it you will unroll it with it's blades laying flat. Different types of turf come in different sizes and dimensions, so carefully roll yours out flat over your base. We recommend you use nails instead of tape to fasten your grass as they're stronger and withstand most types of weather conditions while tape can often lose its grip.
Line Up Your Seams
Make sure you line up your seams as you unroll your turf, it is easy to see the clear lines in the turn. Use parallel lines and align the edges for a seamless and genuine finished look. If you take your time and carefully align your new turf lawn will look perfectly natural.
Trim Or Cut To Fit Your Landscape
If your remnant is larger than the area you are covering, simply trim it with an Exacto knife to fit properly. Not every piece of turf is perfectly sized for your area, so simply cut to the appropriate size. Next, you'll need to secure your turf with nails or tape. If using nails make sure to use 6-8 inch nails and space them 12-18 inches apart around the edges and throughout the middle of the Turf.
Lines Can Be Cut Or Painted Out
This is one of the most fun steps! Painting or cutting your lines is not as difficult as you may think. Artificial Grass is most commonly used in Sporting events and arenas where score and boundary lines must be present. Paint on or cut out your lines with ease.
Brush in your Infill
The last thing you need to do is brush in your Infill. Infill is a crushed material used to weight the blades of the Artificial Grass and prevent it from wrinkling, creasing or rippling caused by movement. When you receive your Turf it will be rolled up and the blades will be lying down. Infill isn't always crushed material, you can even use beach sand!
