For the best results and longevity of your Global SynTurf artificial grass, ground preparation is crucial. The essential steps include:

Remove Existing Lawn: Dig up any existing grass or vegetation to a depth of about 3-4 inches.

Ensure Proper Drainage: Grade the area slightly to facilitate water runoff. Installing a drainage system may be necessary for areas with poor drainage.

Compact the Base: Lay down a crushed rock base, typically 3/4" minus crushed stone, and compact it to create a solid, level surface.

Install a Weed Barrier: Roll out a weed barrier fabric over the compacted base to prevent weed growth while allowing for proper drainage.

Lay the Turf: Roll out the Global SynTurf artificial grass over the prepared base. Cut to fit the area and secure the edges.

Infill Application: Spread the recommended type of infill evenly over the turf and brush it into the fibers to help the grass blades stand up and to add weight to the turf.

Following these steps will help ensure your Global SynTurf installation is successful and durable.
