While ProGreen has an extensive network of certified installers, we completely understand that one of the best ways to cut costs on any home improvement project is to do it yourself.
Below is a detailed overview of the installation procedure. All of these steps are vital to ensure your lawn, putting green or dog run looks its best and will not have any future complications. If you ever have any questions about the installation process, please contact us.
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 855-464-8873.
Clear all vegetation and debris. Add a base of crushed rock and level it with a landscaping rake. 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. Next, fold back the pieces of turf, roll out the seam tape in the middle of the two pieces, and apply adhesive. Roll back one piece of turf onto the seam tape then line up the other side and repeat.
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. Once that’s complete, 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 three feet or so. If desired, add edging, rock or another border.
