Artificial Grass Installation

What is your question?


To prepare your yard for Global SynTurf artificial turf installation, start by clearing the area of any grass, stones, and debris. Level the ground and ensure it has proper drainage. Compact the soil to create a stable base, and if needed, add a layer of crushed rock for additional drainage and stability. This prep work ensures a smooth installation and optimal turf performance.



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.
