The correct way to install artificial grass or fake grass

How to install artificial grass to your garden
Installing artificial grass is an in-depth process and requires particular attention to detail to
have this lawn for life.
You can count on the installation team to transform your old garden into a low maintenance
green synthetic grass carpet. Their staff can install synthetic lawn to fits perfectly into the
garden or in smaller patches to create features in your garden. But if you are not financially
buoyant, you can install artificial grass by your self.
So, you may have decided what artificial grass you like; now, it’s time to install. It’s essential
that you know exactly what will happen to your garden throughout the process. Here’s how to
install artificial grass.

Turf cleaning
Removing natural grass is the first step to preparing the artificial surface of the lawn. A turf
cutter or trimmer or small digger according to the size of the job is used for digging until the soil
ground is reached. It is usually 25 to 100 mm deep. To maintain a clean edge around artificial
grass, you are going to use two types of the perimeter. These are the following:
Timber Perimeter
For the actual perimeter a standard Timber of 100 mm x 25 mm or 50 mm x 25 mm is used.
These are separated by 150/300 mm (depending on the size of the structure and the surface of
the ground). These Timbers or wood are not spaced more than 500 mm and are attached to the
edge. The second option to be used is the concrete perimeter.
When a Timber perimeter cannot be used or not available, a row of 75 mm square of concrete
must be fast-paced for such work as circles and radii.

Preparing the base
It may be necessary to use various aggregates depending on the type of soil. In heavy clay soils,
we recommend the installation of approx. 50 mm MOT type stone. From experience, we believe
that in most grasses it is necessary to avoid water retention after long periods of heavy rain. It is
then compressed finished with sand/sand 25 mm, again compacted until it has reached the
pinnacle of its perimeter.

Geotextile membrane
Then cover the entire base with a durable geotextile membrane to prevent weeds and so on from
penetrating into the artificial grass. To tighten this membrane, cut and pinch the nail with small
nails precisely.

Laying of artificial grass
Rolle your lawn, which comes in length of 4 x 2 meters with a stick in the desired direction. Then
cut the grass in the cut Timber/concrete perimeter and galvanized nails of 35 mm on every 250
mm. Then, join your lawn again and let the glue dry for 24 hours.
So, this is the way artificial lawn is installed. With a bit of preliminary work, you can now relax
and enjoy the beautiful lawn without maintenance.
