Artificial Grass Installation Overview
Measure your yard with a 100 foot tape measure. Additionally, you can use an aerial map application like google maps to determine how much turf you will need. If you need assistance using google maps feel free to call us at 888-440-7888.
Clear all vegetation and debris. Add a base of crushed rock and level it with a landscaping rake. Then spray with water and compact the area with a water-filled lawn roller.
Unroll and lay out the artificial grass, cut off the ends, and line up edges. Then, fold back the pieces of turf, roll out the seam tape in the middle of the two pieces, and apply adhesive. Next, roll back one piece of turf onto seam tape and then line up other side and do the same.
Use a stiff-bristled broom to make the grass fibers stand up, the grass fibers will be lying down due to being transported in a roll.
Use a broadcaster/spreader to add sand between the grass fibers. A depth of approximately 1/2" to 3/4" is recommended. Then brush again to get the sand down to the artificial grass backing and to make the grass fibers stand on end.
Stake down the turf along the perimeter every 3 feet or so. If desired, add edging, rock or other border.
