Preparation of Area
Existing Grass, Soil and any Landscaping is removed from Area, any sprinklers are capped off.
The Synthetic Grass does not need to be watered. This is removed manually with shovels or by using machinery such as a Turf Cutter or Dingo Style Machine. Area is Dug out to 70mm - 100mm below edge. Existing ground is then checked that no weeds or grass is visible.
It is important to have a constant edge around the Installation Area. If adequate edging is not in place the compacted crusher dust will move and escape. This will affect the quality of the Installation. Edging can include a range of things such as: pavers, concrete, timber or metal edges.
Crusher Dust is used as the Base of every installation. 70mm of Crusher Dust is added to the area. This is watered down and compacted. It is done in 2 levels to make sure you get best Base possible. Base needs to be levelled without any depressions. A Wacker Packer or Plate Compactor is used to compact the Crusher Dust to a Hard Flat Base. Road Base is used when back fill is required to get the base to the required level. To assist with drainage a gentle slope is added to the Base which angles water towards a drainage area. (eg garden, storm water)
Area gets measured. Grass is Rolled out and cut to length. Additional Pieces are added until Area is covered in Grass. Pieces are then joined together using Synthetic Grass Adhesive Tape and Pinned. The outer areas are then trimmed using a very sharp quality blade and secured to the Hardened Base using either Large Nails or U-Pins.
Once Synthetic Grass has been joined, trimmed and secured it receives a Power Broom which stands up the Grass Blades. In some instance’s Dry River Sand will be added to Grass to emphasize look and feel. Area is then cleaned of offcuts, grass trimmings and any Rubbish.
