Artificial Grass Installation

How is artificial grass installed? Our step-by-step guide includes our four-step installation process: Planning, Preparing the Base, Cutting and Placing, then lastly, Laying the Infill.

Installation: Planning

The planning process begins by first determining what type of turf our customer needs for their property. Will we be installing fake grass for pets to run around on? Or will we be introducing a new sport field (like soccer, practice your batting for baseball or softball or even football player such as quart back)? We need to determine this information to ensure we bring the right artificial turf to the project.

First, we will bring samples of the fake grass to our client. We will professionally advise them on the turf to select based on their property.
Once the client decides which fake turf is right for them, we can move onto the next step.

Secondly, we will scan the property of any sprinkler systems. We will need to cap any existing sprinkler systems before we can get started. From here, we will consult the client on the necessary drainage that we may need to install. We will also see if the client would like to add an extra layer of padding to their lawn. If the customer desires the filling, we will decide which type is needed.

Thirdly, we make a note of the direction of the fake grass blades. We want the edges to face the direction that the homeowner sees first. This allows for the best possible view. Afterward, we measure the surrounding area of where we will place the fake grass. We will also search the property for any trees or shrubs. We can remove them if the customer desires, or measure out extra turf to lay around them.

Lastly, we must calculate the weight of the synthetic grass. We can do this by measuring the total square footage of the turf roll then dividing it in half. Now that we have created our plan, we can determine the initial price for the job. Once we agree on the terms, we can move forward to preparing the base.

Installation: Preparing the Base

When creating our foundation for synthetic grass, we must first remove the existing vegetation surface. It includes any remaining grass, hard surfaces such as concrete, bricks, and anything else. We will then cap existing sprinkler systems and install any drainage necessary at this time. Secondly, we will dig out 2-4 inches into the surface, depending on the work area. Thirdly, we will make the foundation even and set grade using a landscaping compactor and lawn roller, and other necessary equipment. Now the base is complete and ready for cutting and placing the artificial grass. However, in some cases, the customer wants to lay the synthetic grass on top of the concrete area.

Installation: Cutting & Placing

With a clean and even base setup, we are now ready to unroll the turf. Since the artificial turf has been rolled up for some time, the fibers tend to lay at an angle. To avoid this problem, we allow the fake grass to sit in the sun for a few hours. The sun helps the grass fibers return to a standing position, and helps the backing even itself out.

Once the fake grass blades return to their normal position, we begin cutting our artificial grass. We use our measurements, which we established during our planning phase of the installation process. Then we make the proper cuttings to start placing the synthetic grass on the property. Once the artificial turf is all set in the appropriate spots, we will secure the seams. This step binds each cutting of the fake grass together. We will use a mechanical f
