Remove Natural Grass
It’s critical to remove your natural grass and start fresh. If you install artificial grass on top of the grass, you’re asking for trouble down the road. You should remove the top four inches of your lawn and base and dispose of it.
Spread two tothree inches of aggregate over the area. The aggregate helps to create a level platform with correct drainage. Wetting the area to create as smooth a base as possible is essential.
Roll out your artificial turf, and be careful not to drag it across the base. Let it sit for about an hour in the sun to acclimate. The tuft rows and blades should all face the same way. Use the carpet kicker to stretch the turf into place.
Think of cutting edges like trimming the carpet around the edges of a room. You can use a box cutter and start to cut from the back.
Cutting Around Hardscaping
When you need to cut around rocks or hardscaping, start from the center of the rock. Make small slits around it as you keep the turf right against the rock’s edge. You want the turf to lay flat on the ground without any wrinkles.
Secure the Perimeter
Secure these edges with landscape nails, or seam tape and glue. You can easily tuck in the board and place turf nails every six inches.
Spread & Brush Infill
It’s important to add the correct infill amount for optimal artificial lawn performance. Use a drop spreader to ensure an even amount of infill. We recommend brushing the turf to ensure the blades stand straight up before adding infill to create a vertical blade memory.
