INSTALLING ARTIFICIAL GRASS
Installing your own artificial grass is really simple, but note that the instructions differ when installing artificial grass on a solid base like cement or when installing on an existing lawn. Please ensure you are following the correct method when installing the grass yourself.
- CLEAR THE AREA
Remove all natural grass, unwanted plants and weeds, tree roots and large rocks from the surface. Also remove the soil to a depth of 50mm for good drainage, which is important if your artificial grass will come in contact with pets.
*It is worth hiring professional gardening services or some extra labour for the initial cleaning as it will save you time and effort.
- INSTALLING THE BASE
Installing a base is critical to maintaining the stability of the artificial grass lawn. A layer of gravel should be spread evenly over the area, you can use a rake and hand tamp to ensure a smooth and compact surface. Lightly wet the area to help compact the aggregate, it will also reveal any areas where you need to add some more gravel.
* Do not rush this part as it is the difference between an average and professional installation.
- WEED MEMBRANE
Depending on your conditions, you can spray weed killer before laying the weed membrane. This should be laid directly under the artificial grass.
- INSTALL THE ARTIFICIAL GRASS
With the base properly prepared, position your pieces of artificial grass and trim to desired shape with a sharp knife (carpet cutter). If you are using several rolls or pieces, make sure the grain or pile of the grass point in the same direction as this will give your lawn a more professional touch.
- SEAM TOGETHER
Seam the pieces together with strong outdoor adhesive and seam tape. You can use galvanized nails to nail your grass and keep it from making wrinkles.
