How to Lay Artificial Grass

  • Get the tools you’ll need (listed below) and remove any preexisting turf. After preparing the base layer, apply a layer of sand to form an even surface.
  • Now, spread a layer of shock-absorbing material. Detach the artificial turf from the grass-free border and align the grass. Cut the turf into your desired shape. The next step is actually laying the grass.
  • To prepare a hard surface, it needs to be clean, smooth, and level. Apply sand on the sub-base if there is any unevenness in the concrete. This will help smooth the surface and fill in small defects
  • Make sure you are pleased with the needed height of grass against the area already existing. Using a spade or mechanical turf cutter, remove the natural turf. If your ground is free draining and compacted, remove the subsoil and natural grass to a depth of 7 cm. If not, the ideal depth is 10 cm. Do not install artificial grass directly onto topsoil.
  • Use a vibrating plate or roller to compact the surface. You can hire both. Install a weed membrane after spray the turf with a weed killer. If you need a timber surround, place it now. Make sure it is not above the final grass line.
  • Apply a minimum of limestone 20mm grade size aggregate or 75mm of clean Type 1 onto the surface. Use a plate or roller to compact the stone. Then, apply a layer of builders’ sand, also known as grit sand or sharp sand, or fine stone – 6–14mm. The average depth is 30mm. Compact as needed. You can top up to achieve the desired level.

How to Join Artificial Grass

  • For large areas, you might need to join two pieces of grass. To do this, you need joining tape with the appropriate type of adhesive. Make sure both are suitable for use outdoors.
  • Unroll your grass into your desired position. Making sure there are no spaces, cut close to the bead on the first grass piece. Leave a space for the beading on the second piece. Bring the two pieces together to create a ‘dry’ join.
  • Unroll the joining tape. Then, fold back the joining edges by about a foot. The lustrous side of the tape should be face down. Place a bit of glue onto the joining tape. Spread the adhesive using a scraper
  • Now, move down the seam. Join the two pieces together carefully. Take care not to bury or damage tufts.
  • After applying the adhesive, pressurize it by brushing over the seam lightly.
