Once you have completed the preparation phase which includes measuring how much artificial grass you need, installing proper drainage (if required) and removing the natural grass layer, you will be ready to install your artificial grass lawn. This article outlines the steps you need to follow to help you work properly, from laying foundations, connecting joints and preventing weed growth.
Sharp sand after gravel base
If necessary, use treated wood parts to frame an area. We recommend 4 x 2 inches tantalized treated wood for heavy clay soil areas and 2 x 2 inches tantalized wood for weak drainage areas and good drainage areas.
Place these sticks on the inside of the fence and pull on the rope. If they install artificial grass combined with a concrete path, wall or decking, with the height of the wood surface and using a 10mm temporary fillet, pack the wood close to the wall so that you are able to pull the artificial grass into the wood. And the adjacent material in the next stage.
Spread a layer of sharp sand for the blind on the ground for better drainage areas. Next compact the soil using a vibration plate that can be hired from an equipment rental company. Make sure the enclosure is compact and flat with wooden edges.
Weed control level
Apply weed control geotextile membranes and cut as needed. Tack on the edges of the wood using small 1 inch galvanized clout nails. This weed control prevents any possibility of weed growth through geotextile membrane artificial grass drainage holes.
Roll out the artificial grass
Work on the carpet and install artificial grass in the desired direction and not on a flat basis. Make sure the carpet is cut, placed to cover the joints and debris at least 4 inches from the wood edge. If the artificial grass meets any path or edge, and if you place the wood edge described earlier correctly, it can be tied into the artificial grass.
If joining, please make sure that the artificial grass is placed on each piece with a pile moving in the same direction. Place the carpet on top of the sand as opposed to pulling over the base material. To help stop wrinkles or stop creasing it is recommended to add and let stand for 2 to 3 hours before gluing. Cut the grass using a sharp dolphin or a Stanley knife or scissors.
When attaching your exterior carpet together, make sure the piles are moving in the same direction. Cut the manufacturer’s edge strip (if present) and the two edges together to ensure that there is no gap of more than 1 mm between the edges of the two carpets. Its accuracy will determine how visible the joining is after completion. Fold the back edges and place the joining tape (smooth side down) so that the edges of the carpet meet the tape when joining.
Lower the carpet and press both ends into the wet glue, making sure that each piece is married and has no overlap.
When you’re doing this with your fingers, blend the fibres together to hide the joints. Once the full length is fixed and you are happy with its appearance you need to activate the glue and tie the grass with tape a few times to join the walk. Weigh the seam to ensure good contact with the glue until it heals. The more care is taken with the operation, the more perfect and neat the joint will be.
When the artificial grass is assembled and glued and you are happy with the layers, screw the grass into the wooden perimeter structure using galvanized screws at least 12-inch intervals.
Spread the sand (option chick, depending on the selected grass)
When laying artificial grass use silica sand, which is ebb dry, and brushes on the carpet on the go. Each product may have sand lifting but it is only used to stabilize the carpet and the sand should not be visible at any time. You must use a brush to spread evenly on the surface to create depth in the layers. Do not put sand on an application.
When the artificial grass is dry and the weather is good, brush in a pile of sand immediately after laying. Brush vigorously against the fibres of the carpet pile so that the tufts are encouraged to stand up straight. The right amount of sand to help keep artificial grass stuck to the bed protects the fibres and keeps it standing to give the appearance of real grass. Do not put sand on an application.
Once the hard work is done, you can sit back and relax from the knowledge that your artificial grass lawn will look great and require minimal maintenance.
