The exact width is 15’-2” without manufacturer’s flaps. In most applications, installers to cut off first couple of stitch lines especially for seaming purpose. Most our turf’s gauge is 3/8” (the distance between stitch lines), so even cutting off couple of stitch lines, you will lose just about 1” or so.

The reason to install wire mesh under the turf is to prevent gophers or critters coming through. Wire mesh is always an option when it comes to turf installations, not all areas are having gopher or critters issues.

The understand dripping system is a great idea: you can have the pipe buried under the turf base with water pointing up into the base rack: water will travel upwards then spread down to minimize chances of “channels” being created to harm the integrity of ground/base support of turf. Please feel free to email us at [email protected] if you have any further questions, thank you.

15x19 is a rather small area, adding infills onto such small piece of turf can be easy: you can simply hold the infill bags and spread the infills onto the artificial grass surface, then using a push broom to brush the infills into the turf.

Artificial grass has to be installed on a solid and smooth base: the turf is as good as the base. We always recommend to have about 4” of base build for artificial grass installations of which 2-1/2” of road base and 1-1/2” of decomposed granite. Such preparation will not only provide solid and smooth base but also guarantee the best drainage. For certain dry areas, the base building might be a bit different if the drainage is not a big concern. You can always call us at 877 796 8873 or email us at [email protected] if you have any further questions, thank you.

Sometimes installers will use nails in the putting green turf to stabilize the installation. However, the. Type of nails used has to be without heads (or pins) and once installed, people won’t notice them at all. Regular 40D or 60D will probably not work as the mail heads will be exposed. I hope your installer has used the correct nails that not visible on your green, of course it will always be ideal to only have infills to hold the turf in place without using any nails.

All the infills on today’s market is relatively safe to use for artificial grass installation. The infills are meant to provide extra weight and hold the turf down better and help the blades to stand up. In most cases, if the infills are applied properly, it will sink all the way to the very bottom of the turf, you will not be able to see or get contact with it unless you spread open the fibers and put your fingers into the turf. However, to be 100% safe, we will recommend the wonderfill product which is sands coated with antimicrobial agent to prevent bacteria and germs and is extremely safe for your kids. Here is the link for the details of wonderfill: https://www.globalsynturf.com/products/wonder-fill. Please feel free to call (877 796 8873) or email ([email protected]) us if you have any further questions, thank you.

You always want to use the smallest meshed infills on artificial putting greens. Our putting greens were tufted very tightly and leaves very minimal room for infills to go in, you will have an extremely hard time to brush bigger grain infills into it. We would recommend to use either #30 or #60 mesh infills for all our putting greens. Please feel free to contact us by phone: 877 796 8873 or email: [email protected] if you have any further questions, or you can fill out this online form to find the local distributors/dealers near you: https://www.globalsynturf.com/free-quote, thank you.

Our gopher wire will definitely work for wild rabbits once installed under the artificial grass. Any animals that can dig underground and potentially damage the foundations of turf base will be prevented by using gopher wires. However, it won’t do anything to animals that don’t dig such as squirrels. Please let us know if you have any other questions by calling us at 877 796 8873 or emailing us at [email protected], thank you.

Mulch is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool, prevent frost heaving in winter, and make the garden bed look more attractive. Organic mulches also help improve the soil’s structure, drainage, and nutrient-holding capacity as they decompose. It is common that people use mulch and artificial grass for designs of their landscape for different purposes, but in my opinion, mulch is a cheaper alternative to artificial turf and I will always recommend turf over mulch to cover landscape areas. Please feel free to let us know if you have any other questions by phone: 877 796 8873 or email: info[email protected], thank you.

To have a perfectly prepared base for artificial grass installations, you will need to make sure of the following:
1. Use the right materials to build the base: the bottom layer to be drain rock at about 2-1/2” thickness and top layer to be decomposed granite at about 1-1/2” thickness, both layers need to be wetted and compacted separately to 90%.
2. You don’t have to change the contour or slope of your area, in another word, you can install the turf along the slope or mild contour without excessive excavations.
3. As long as the surface of base (decomposed granite) to be smooth and solid, your installation will have a good result.

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.
