Synthetic Turf Installation

Installing synthetic turf might sound easy, but there is a lot more to it than what meets the eye. You may think that installing synthetic turf is just throwing a slab of artificial grass on the top of natural grass, and you are good to go. If it were that easy, you would see every lawn outside your house looking all the same, green and luscious. It is easier said than done, and it usually takes only one day to complete depending on how much area you are trying cover. The installation requires at least two people to get the job done, but the more the better. You will also need the necessary tools and equipment to handle the job. Just like anything else, you have to measure out the area first and prep it before installing the artificial grass.

The first thing to installing synthetic grass is to measure out the area, and set in the boundaries of where you want your synthetic grass to be. The next thing is to remove existing grass or ground from the area, using a lawn mower or digging. Now you want the area to be flat and even by using a flattening tool or roller. The reason why you are trying to make the surface as even and flat as possible is because once you lay the synthetic grass down, you don’t want uneven surfaces when you walk or run on it.

After you have finished flattening and evening up the surface, you are now ready to set the first layer of foundation for your synthetic turf. That first layer will consists of covering the dirt with decomposed rocks. At least one inch of rocks all around the area to create a concrete feel, because dirt itself won’t remain even. You have to lay that first foundation for extra measures. Once you are done with that process, you are now ready to lay down the artificial grass.

The artificial grass is installed just like installing carpet into your home. Lay the layers of synthetic turf evenly next to each other until you cover the whole area. You have to leave a little extra turf on the outside areas so they are tucked in for perfect and strong fitting, leaving no gaps.

Now that the hard part is over with, you evenly distribute the infill into the synthetic grass. This will make sure the blades of the synthetic turf stand upright. This also gives the artificial grass cushion and comfort that acts if it were natural grass. Now the last question remains. How to maintain your new everlasting synthetic turf? Well the first thing is you barely have to maintain it. No more watering or mowing. With pets, not a problem, even with pet waste, it is easily removable without any signs of yellowing or residue. Like carpet just clean with a disinfectant, or one a turf company provides. Worried about it being worn out? It won’t happen because synthetic grass is extremely durable.
