Installing artificial grass correctly is essential to enjoy all its advantages. A proper installation guarantees a securely fixed material and invisible joints and prevents fraying of the ends. Welcome to our blog, where we guide the essential steps to achieve a successful artificial grass installation with flawless and long-lasting results.
The first step is to design the area, clearing the space by removing furniture and other obstructions. Make sure to remove all furniture and obstacles before proceeding with the installation. Level the support layer to create a smooth and even surface. Clean the area to remove dust and adhesive residues, if applicable. Test the moisture levels of the floor and walls to ensure they are dry.
The second step is to temperature and Acclimatization by ensuring that the installation space maintains a temperature of around 15 degrees Celsius during installation. Acclimatize the artificial grass by unrolling the rolls and allowing them to rest in the installation area for 24 hours.
The third step involves measuring and planning the site to proceed with the building. Measure the dimensions of the installation area, considering any doors and stairs that may apply. Adding an extra 5-10 centimetres to the calculated site is advisable to ensure sufficient material coverage.
After taking the necessary measurements, proceed to the fourth step of cutting and marking the areas where the material needs to be trimmed based on your installation plan. Use a cutter to cut the artificial grass along the markings.
The next step is the application of adhesive, which should be done evenly on the backing layer using a water-based adhesive. Avoid applying sealant directly on the fabric of the artificial grass. In the sixth step, it is important to trim and fit the synthetic grass to ensure it fits perfectly in the designated space. Afterwards, in the seventh step, secure and finish by using a solid metal object to run over the entire surface of the grass, enhancing its adhesion and ensuring a smooth finish.
Finally, the last step is settling and usage. Although the grass can be cleaned and stepped on immediately after installation, waiting 72 hours before regular use is recommended to allow the floor to settle correctly.
