Eight steps to enjoy artificial grass in your garden or terrace
1. PREPARE THE LAND
Before starting if the surface on which it is to be installed is dirt, you have to remove weeds and put herbicide on the ground. Logically, this step is not necessary if the installation is on concrete.
2 . COMPACT THE LAND
If there are unevenness in the ground, it must be filled with river sand to level. As in the previous point, this step will not be necessary if you are installing the grass on concrete.
3. PLACE THE MESH ANTI HERBS
Again for ground surfaces, we must place an anti-weed mesh, holding it with the picks for its fixation.
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.
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.
Y Voila, now you just have to enjoy it without worries.
