Here are the 12 steps to installing artificial grass. If you want your lawn look professional, to have a proper drainage, to last you for the next twenty years, take every step with care. You will find tools that you will need for the installation at the bottom of this page. There are also four videos with Dave who will explain and show every step of synthetic turf installation in great details. Don't miss these instructions if you really want your synthetic lawn look good and last long. We've got the best artificial grass installation videos.
CAUTION: Turf should be rolled out under the sun with blades facing down at least 1-2 hours before installation. This will allow the turf to acclimate and as a result make it easier to work with.
If you every worked with carpeting, you know that seaming can be a "dirty" business. With synthetic turf it may get even "dirtier" because you install artificial grass on the top of a granite and a road base. A couple of years ago every synthetic turf installer used special tape and glue to seam the edges of the turf. You can imagine how messy it was, not talking about time wasted on drying up glue and cleaning up afterwards. It was also impossible to get the seam apart if you made a mistake. You had to cut off the big piece of turf and replace it with a new one. If you are still using this method to seam the turf, don't! Times of seaming with glue are over. Thanks to physicists, we have a new tool called EasySeam machine. It works on radio-waves (not micro-waves as many are mistaken). When you seam with EasySeam, it doesn't hit up; it doesn't burn hands; it doesn't use any glue, only the seaming tape you lay out underneath the seam, and most importantly, you can take a seam apart at any time you are not happy with your seam. New generation of turf installers may not realize how lucky they are to have radio-waves seaming machine for artificial turf installation. In any case, Dave tells you all about it in two videos below.
