How to properly install artificial grass

Proper and efficient use of the material will provide a sketch of the future lawn and measurements. Artificial grass for lawn reformation needs to be unrolled so that the villi can straighten out during the preparation of the base. You need to make sure that the villi are turned in one direction.

Next, cut the production seam with a sharp construction knife from each side of the roll and position the artificial grass in place so that adjacent strips are as close to each other as possible. The seam can be reinforced with a special tape attached to the base with nails, each time making sure that blades of grass do not stick to the adhesive tape.

Roll the seam with a needle roller after the grass strips have adhered to the joint tape. The edges of the artificial grass for lawn renewal can be fixed with wooden slats, using glue.

In order for artificial grass to deliver as little inconvenience as possible during operation, it must be properly laid. Before laying the coating, the surface is carefully smoothed, cleaned of debris, pebbles, and other objects. If this is not done, then the coating will have an untidy appearance, and even its integrity will be damaged.

Do not forget that the base for a permeable coating must be adapted to drain water.
