4. EXTEND THE ARTIFICIAL LAWN ON THE AREA TO BE INSTALLED.

Before fixing it is recommended leave it extended to the sun for a couple of hours so that it adapts to the ground and the hair rises. This way it will be easier to work with the grass rolls later.

5. CUT TO CUT WITH A CUTTER

With a cutter, play trim the grass to fit the surface.

6. ADJUST THE UNION CUTS

The joints of the pieces of the artificial turf rolls used must be closed. For that you have to use a self-adhesive tape in the middle, removing the protective plastic. Place the joints of the rolls on top of the tape and press for greater adhesion.

7. BELOW

A pickaxes They will secure the grass so that it does not move. They must be placed around the perimeter and at the junction of the cloths (approx. Every 60 cm).

8. WE REVIEW WITH A GARDEN BRUSH

Finally, the newly installed lawn is reviewed with a brush, emphasizing the joining of cloths.
