Synthetic Grass Installation
Synthetic grass installation is a relatively systematic process that involves more work than meets the eye, as it’s more than just laying sheets of artificial turf over natural grass. This intensive process usually takes only one to two days to finish, dependent upon the space you would like covered. Usually requiring a minimum of two people to complete the installation, you will also need a number of equipment and tools, including rakes, rollers and flattening tools to properly install synthetic grass.
Before you can begin the installation process, there is some prep involved. This includes properly determining your workspace to ensure that you have adequate amounts of synthetic turf to cover your lawn area. It’s also important to make sure you have cleared the space of any additional debris that could hinder the process.
The first step involves measuring the area and identifying the boundaries in which you’d like to install the artificial turf. The next stop involves the removal of any existing natural grass or ground from this established area by digging or using a lawn mower. This is done to ensure that you have a flat surface to lay the synthetic grass to create the level space to run or walk on the turf. This is usually achieved by using a roller or flattening tool and once this is completed, the first layer of foundation will be laid.
The first layer of artificial turf consists of covering dirt with at least one inch of decomposed rocks around the entire area. The rocks are used to create a smooth concrete feel, considering that dirt doesn’t remain even and level. Once the foundation is secured, the space is primed to la down the synthetic grass. Artificial grass installation is similar to installing carpet in the home, as installers lay layers of artificial grass evenly next to one another, until the whole area is covered. Extra turf is left on the outside areas and tucked in to create a clean and strong fit, free of gaps.
Next, it’s time to make sure that the infill is evenly distributed into the artificial turf. Using a broom to spread the infill is key and this process is done to ensure that the blades of the synthetic grass are able to stand upright. Additionally, the infill layer in synthetic grass also aids in replicating the comfort and cushion of natural grass. Once your synthetic grass is installed, now you must determine how to maintain your new artificial turf. Well, luckily artificial turf requires very little maintenance, compared to regular grass. Synthetic grass is hassle free and long gone is the days of worrying about watering and mowing your lawn. Artificial turf is also very pet friendly, as animal waste can easily be picked up and the turf won’t show ay signs of residue or yellowing, always maintaining its green, lush appearance.
Overall, the hard work that goes into installing synthetic turf is more than worth it, as this one time installation process allows you to have the benefits of natural looking grass, minus the expensive and time intensive upkeep of real grass.
