Artificial Grass Installation

What is your question?
2021-01-04T22:42:37+00:00

The base preparation for artificial putting greens is the same as regular artificial grass. So typically you will need to excavate about 4” of soil then put a bottom layer of 2-1/2” thick of drain rock and a top layer of decomposed granite at 1-1/2” thickness, both layers will be compacted at 90%. Please let us know if you have any other questions by phone: 877 796 8873 or email: [email protected], thank you.

All you need is a sharp carpet knife or utility knife: when cutting the artificial grass aound the tree, it is important that you want to cut at least couple of times, first to do a rough cut leaving the turf bigger to overlap the tree, than do your final cut in a precise way. You will also need to make sure to score the cuts from the back of the turf. If you have any other questions, please feel free to call us at 877 796 8873 or email us at [email protected], thank you.

Since your artificial turf size is only 15’x14’, I will assume there won’t be any seams for your application. If you don’t have any exposed edges, all you need for the turf installation is nails and infills. If you have exposed edges, you might want to use either Wonderedge or bender board to finish things off. Here are the link to the all our installation accessories including nails and edging products: https://www.globalsynturf.com/catalog/supplies.

One of the main tasks of artificial grass installation is to build a solid and smooth base which will be compacted to 90%. Once such sub base has been built, at the time of laying down your turf, you won’t crumble it with your knees or feet. Your concern can only happen if the base is too soft or not even, to learn more about how to build the sub base and install your artificial grass, please visit our installation link at: https://www.globalsynturf.com/installation-guides.

The two main reasons to excavate soil and build sub base for artificial grass are: drainage and smooth surface for turf to be laid on. If your application won’t have concern of water being properly drained and your current surface is solid and smooth enough, you probably won’t need to alter the soil. However, I would like to know a bit more details about your project before providing any applicable suggestions, please email us with your project details at [email protected] or call us at 877 796 8873 or simply fill out this online form: https://www.globalsynturf.com/free-quote, thank you.

Regardless the type and size of your artificial grass, the installation of turf to replace real grass lawns are the same. When it comes to the sub base preparation, we typically recommend to excavate 4” of soil, and build the turf sub base of 2-1/2” with drain rock at the bottom and 1-1/2” decomposed granite on top: both layers need to be wetted and compacted at 90%. You can find more details of installations on our website, here is the link: https://www.globalsynturf.com/installation-guides.

No you won’t need the shockpad if your artificial grass application is only for visual purposes. The function of the shockpad is to provide extra cushioning to the turf and make it feel better while walking on it. However, if you are using the grass for trade shows or showrooms, it will be a great idea to use the shockpad underneath the turf so people can feel the comfort. For any further questions, please call us at 877 796 8873 or email us at [email protected], thank you.

Well, weed can always find ways to grow anywhere, ideally I will recommend to use weed barrier under the artificial grass if people bothers by weed. Some people might care less about weed problems if they are not over growing. With artificial turf, even weed sometimes pops up along the edges or very rarely through the drainage holes, but they will be very minimal and some people would think a few weed makes the artificial turf look even more realistic. For people like me who would like an absolute clean turf surface, weed barrier will definitely help.

If your artificial grass installation has been done properly, the drainage holes won’t get clogged. For most landscape applications or replacing real grass lawns with artificial turf, we recommend to build sub base by having 2” to 2-1/2” of drain rocks and 1” to 1-1/2” of decomposed granite both compacted at 90% before laying turf on top of it. Such sub base will definitely eliminate the possibility of turf’s drainage holes being clogged. To learn more details about how to build the turf sub base, please visit our installation guideline page at: https://www.globalsynturf.com/installation-guides. If you have any other questions, please feel free to call (877 796 8873) or email ([email protected]) us, thank you.

No, gopher wire installed underneath the artificial grass will only prevent gophers or other animals from digging through holes, it will not work on moles at all. Typically moles won’t grow on turf, however when there are debris or dirts on the turf surface, moles might have a chance to grow, therefore, rinsing off the artificial grass with a garden hose will help to prevent moles from growing. Please let us know if you have any other questions by phone: 877 796 8873 or email: [email protected] if you have any other questions, thank you.

Yes, you will need concrete to install golf cups on your artificial putting green. You will install the putting green turf in a similar way as you are installing regular turf, when it comes to the cup installation, you will need concrete to secure it in the ground.

We recommend to use 1.5-2 lbs of infills per square foot when you are installing our artificial grass products including the Pet Turf. So you area is 135 sf. (15’x9’) which will need 202-270 lbs of infills, all our infills are 50 lbs per bag, so you will need to order 4 to 5 bags for your project.

Your artificial grass won’t be curled once you first roll it out: all the fibers will be pressed down facing one direction which is normal due to how we are packaging the turf. Typically before installing the artificial grass, we always recommend people to roll out the turf under the sun to let it relax during which time frame (1-2 hours), the turf and fibers will be warmed up and start to stand up on its own. Please keep in mind that most our artificial grass products come with a form of both straight fibers and thatch (curled), even the fibers being pressed down the thatch of turf will stall maintain its curling form and be functional as they are designed to be: help straight fibers stand up better and provide more realistic look. Please feel free to call us (877 796 8873) or email us ([email protected]) if you have any other questions, thank you.

You can use either nail for your artificial grass installations, they both will work out well to give you satisfactory results: the 40 D nails is a bit thinner and shorter and cost less, some installers like it as it can be a bit easier to drive through the turf at the installation; 60 D nails are bit more expensive but longer which theoretically provide better hold.

The only difference between regular silica sand and green sands are the color and price: our green sand is coated with green color which can technically blend in better with the artificial grass. Since the green sands take extra steps of coating and drying, the cost is higher than regular silica sand. Please contact us by phone: 877 796 8873 or email: [email protected] if you have any other questions, thank you!

Technically you can use any infills to go with pet turf, however, if budget allows, I will always recommend zeolite which is a natural mineral that can neutralize the pet’s urine smell. Zeolite infills will also serve the general purposes of holding the artificial grass down to minimize expansions and contractions, and help the turf blades to stand up better. To learn more about zeolite infills, please visit this link: https://www.globalsynturf.com/products/zeofill-organic-infill.
