Ensure You Protect Your Artificial Grass From Weeds
Be sure to buy a membrane which is weed-resistant. Some people do not bother with this vital step, and they pay the price later down the line when their lovely turf is strewn with large unruly weeds, and they have to do the installation all over again.
Always be mindful of the fact that weeds are very strong, and will always try to grow through the fake grass, generating deformity and organic growth below the surface. So, be exact when you cut the membrane to fit specific shapes and spaces. This is easy to do if you purchase the material in sheets.
Do Not Forget the Filling Agent
Whether you are using sand, stone that has been crushed, or a mixture of the two, this natural micro-draining solution is an essential part of the process. There are various types of infill material, so do not get anything that can overheat, such a rubber crumb option, particularly if you are installing the false lawn for sports activities.
Ensure the Surface is Even
Once your foundation cavity has been filled, be sure to use a flat board or an even-edged wood plank, to generate a smooth surface. Ensure there are no concave areas; and all the way through the installation, make sure that your surface is even.
Remember Your Shock Protection
Although this is an optional extra, remember that if you want your faux lawn to feel like the real thing, you have to add a shock absorbent membrane just before laying the artificial grass.
A Final Touch For Stability
This addition is highly recommended, even though it is just an option. You will have to use a seed spreader for the silica sand distribution over the artificial grass bed. This product adds durability and stability while offering an effective draining medium at the same time. After laying the silica sand evenly across the fake turf, utilise a coarse brush broom to send it into the turf and take away any excess.
