Artificial Installation Process

Synthetic grass installation can be basic, however, no two installs are done exactly the same way. There will always be unique situations for each case. Listed below is a standard process for our best value artificial grass: 

1.    Pre Installation: Remove existing materials and rough grade the area to create a solid sub base and uncover everything underneath, including electric wiring, irrigation, and pipes. Cap sprinklers at the pipe level to avoid any kind of leakage. Install bender board to provide a clean separation for plants and turf.

2.    Base Preparation: Install 1/2" or less crushed base to allow for proper drainage. Install this layer three inches deep. Distribute base and make sure it is level to account for any sloping areas. Install drainage area. A smooth base will account for the surface level appearance for the project.

3.    Compacting Base: Compact the base by vibrating, tamping, and rolling the gravel. This ensures the base is solid so that nails can be driven into the turf.

4.    Weed Retardant Layer (optional): The weed cloth layer prevents any growth from coming up out of the base through the turf. This layer is not recommended if the installation involves pet usage. Overlap weed cloth edges by six inches and secure with as many flat head nails as possible to prevent the cloth's movement. Trim the cloth to fit the area and leave a quarter inch gap along the hardscape or border areas to allow for easier tucking.

5.    Laying Turf: Find a straight edge of the turf or a perpendicular edge for alignment. Square to fit the area and minimize cutting and fitting on all four sides. Secure the turf edges with nails to hold it in place. Remember to soldier the turf towards your privileged viewpoint. In other words, consider the natural blade direction of the grass.

6.    Custom Fitting Turf: Over cut the turf by one inch along the edges to provide excess turf necessary for tucking. If there are doubts, cut the turf fatter than estimated, since it can be trimmed later. Use a seaming tool to seam edges together. Cut the seams in an S-shape to avoid the turf pushing up. Install nails six inches along the edges and drive them 3/4 of the way down. Remember to move the surrounding fibers with another nail or staple, then tap the nail head all the way to the backing. Use U-shaped nails for the seams to join the turf edges together.

7.    Tucking Turf: Hide the edges of your turf against the hardscape by using a metal bar known as a "wonder bar."

8.    Apply Infill: Use a power brush to force grass blades up in order for infill to be applied. Apply your specified infill layer. The infill layer acts as a balance to hold the blades upright and provides the turf with more weight.

9.    Final Groom: Power brush the turf once again to lightly force infill granules into the base of the turf. Remove any excess debris.
