Artificial grass is an ideal solution for many homeowners who are sick of covering up unsightly bald spots in their outdoor green space. With synthetic turf, you can transform your backyard garden into a lush, low-maintenance paradise with ease.
If you are considering installing wholesale synthetic turf in your yard, there are a few steps you need to take to ensure you’re getting the most out of your investment. Here is a guide to the four steps you should follow when installing artificial grass on dirt.
1. Level the Area
Once you’ve dug out your existing sod, you’ll need to ensure that you have a nice and level canvas on which to lay your artificial turf. If your existing landscape isn’t completely level, you can add a layer of sand on top of the existing base materials to easily create a smooth, even surface.
2. Trim Your Synthetic Grass
The next step in the process is to trim your wholesale turf to the desired shape and size. Make sure to measure your landscape very carefully before cutting your turf. Remember, “measure twice, cut once.”
The recommended method of cutting your turf is using a utility knife. Lay down the synthetic turf on the intended area to make sure that it fits perfectly when cutting, and especially avoid making the turf too small in any section.
3. Lay the Artificial Turf
Once your synthetic turf has been cut and the installation area has been prepared, you can begin installing the wholesale turf. Lay the synthetic grass evenly and precisely over the installation area, and push the grass into the corners for a snug fit with no gaps.
Once the turf has been stretched across the sub-base, nail it into place using landscape nails or staples every foot or so. You should also use synthetic turf adhesive to firmly secure the new turf grass wherever necessary, most importantly in the seams and on steep slopes.
4. Add Infill
Finally, once your synthetic grass is firmly secured onto the lawn, it’s time to place your infill. Infill is critical for the drainage capabilities and appearance of your synthetic grass. Make sure that you get the right type of infill for your lawn’s needs, whether that’s silica sand, rubber granules, pet-friendly Zeolite Max, or a variety of other products.
Once you’ve chosen your infill product, sprinkle a thin layer evenly over the top of the new artificial grass backyard. Once you’ve added it to the turf’s surface, brush it into the base of the grass blades using a synthetic-bristle brush. This will help support the turf blades at their base, keeping them upright and maintaining the turf backyard’s lush appearance.
Following these four steps will help ensure your artificial grass installation is successful. Make sure to take your time and use the right tools to get the best results. With proper installation, your artificial grass will look great and last for many years to come.
