Artificial Grass Installation – 3-Step Guide to Preparing Your Garden

The planning is perhaps the most important element in the creation of an artificial grass lawn. No shortcuts are available. This report details the steps you can take to determine and plan for installation the suitability of your ground. This involves accurately measuring the soil conditions and eliminating the current layer of lawn grass.

1. Measurements

 

Label the calculated position off. With a spray paint or even sand it will help to mark the area off. It is necessary for the measurement of the wood perimeter to have an overlap of 100mm on each side. The artificial grass is available in rolls two metres and four metres wide and can also be given in the following lengths. The exact length and width required must be calculated accurately.

2. Survey/Ground Words

 

Assess if insufficient drainage is the foundation of the soil. In such situations, steps to instal sufficient and effective drainage must be taken to ensure a good foundation.

 

If an Fake Grass   is designed to take on a brand new subsurface, minimum fall should be applied to assist drainage (1:200 is ideal). Macadam is particularly suitable as a sub-base for most types of Artificial Grass (open textured).

 

As the foundation the plates are not sufficient, since the outline of the plates appears on the grass surface after some time. The plates should be removed or maybe coated with a thick coarse sand coat.

 

Well compacted unbound (stone) aggregate foundation are ideal and this form of base is recommended if an artificial paddle should be constructed from scratch. However any unbound surface that drains and is steady and reasonably high is fine. If the surface is just too rough it will be broken in coarse sharp sand, so it will lay the grass in a smooth and flat surface.

 

While artificious grass is laid on an existent lawn, the drain is not inherently quite positive in the long run, provided the drainage is satisfactory. The natural grass will die off and the roots will fail and the soil will become uneven. Removal of the grass, compaction of the resulting soil base and the dirt covered with compacted sand, can solve this problem.

 

3. Lower Grass Elimination

 

Remove the grass and other weeds by hand and use a turf cutter to save time and effort. Grade the earth to approximate levels that exclude any large and tightly compact protruding stones. Drainage should be mounted, then the floor compacted by a vibration plate that can be purchased from an equipment recruitment agency.

 

If you have completed the above preparatory steps you will be fully prepared to build your artificial lawn. The following article will explain the steps during the installation process.
