Measure the area you want to cover, add 10cm to allow for trimming.
Our artificial grass is supplied in 2m & 4m widths and can be cut to any length up to 25m.
Remove any existing turf and soft soil, a turf cutting machine is best for this, though small areas can be scrapped off with a shovel, do not dig down as this puts air pockets in the ground which may settle later.
Level out your area and compact until very firm.
Apply a layer of Hardcore Crusher Run and compact again, followed by a thin layer of sharp river sand and compact.
You may wish to use a weed membrane, not only will it prevent weeds from setting root through the drainage holes it also prevents you shifting the sand about when manoeuvring the roll of artificial grass.
Move your artificial grass into place, ensuring all pieces are running in the same direction.
When joining pieces …
• trim each side close to the line of stitching seen from the underneath,
• butt the two edges together,
• fold back the grass,
• lay a length of the jointing tape rough side up,
• apply 5 beads of adhesive and spread with a trowel,
• carefully fold the pieces back into place ensuring none of the pile is trapped.
• Apply weight to the top of the joint to ensure good contact while the adhesive cures.
Secure Artificial Grass into treated timber using galvanized nails or decking screws.
Artificial Grass can be butted up to walls
Polyurethane adhesive will stick Artificial Grass to masonry and sound concrete
Artificial Grass can be tucked under real grass or paving
Kiln Dried Sand should be used as a dressing, this disappears into the pile, weighting the artificial grass down, supporting the fibres – keeping the grass standing upright and it also protects the backing preventing damage from high heels etc.
Weeds will try to grow in your Artificial Grass but remember any weed killer can be used and it won't kill your new lawn.
