But keep in mind: installing artificial grass is a specialist job
The artificial grass is probably in your garden for a minimum of ten years. Then it’s important to put it right at once. Keep in mind the following:
- Make the surface as smooth as a billiard sheet.
Any unevenness, even the smallest stone, you will feel and see.
- Make sure the subbase is solid
The grass will be directly on the subbase in most case, if the base is not solid, the carpet will not lay nice and flat.
- Make sure the subbase drains
The condition of the soil must be such that the water can easily drain. If you do not do that, you’ll be in danger of flooding the artificial grass when there is abundant rainfall.
- Make sure you make the perfect seams
Making a good seam connection is an precise job. Take your time, as errors are difficult to fix.
- Always cut the grass on the bottom side
This way you do not cut the grass fibers. Also keep in mind that you always keep 2mm at the edge. The grass may work when the temperature rises. If the grass is tight against the edges, you are at risk of folding.
