Deciding to replace your natural lawn with artificial grass is a significant decision that can transform your outdoor space into a low-maintenance oasis. While the end result promises a lush, evergreen expanse that requires minimal upkeep, the installation process itself is equally important. Here’s what you can expect when you embark on an artificial grass installation for your home:

Site Preparation

ou must prepare your existing lawn thoroughly before laying down any artificial grass. This critical phase involves removing the natural grass, weeds, and any debris, creating a level surface for the new installation. Proper grading and compaction of the soil ensure a sturdy base that prevents future settling or unevenness.

The Base 

Once the site is prepared, a base course is installed. This layer, typically composed of crushed stone or decomposed granite, provides stability and drainage for your artificial turf. We meticulously calculate the depth and composition of the base course to support the specific product you’ve chosen and the intended usage of the area.

Shock Pad Layer (Optional)

Depending on the intended use of your artificial grass, a shock-absorbing underlayment may be installed over the base course. This layer not only enhances comfort underfoot but also provides crucial safety features. Particularly for play areas or surfaces subject to high foot traffic.

Laying Out the Artificial Turf

We carefully unroll and secure your chosen artificial grass, the star of the show, to the prepared surface. Skilled installers ensure a seamless, wrinkle-free installation, expertly joining the seams for a cohesive, natural look. Precision cutting around edges, landscaping features, and obstacles guarantees a tailored fit that seamlessly integrates with your outdoor space.

Infill Application: The Finishing Touch

To achieve a realistic, lush appearance and provide the desired level of cushioning, most artificial grass installations require the application of infill material. We meticulously spread and work this specialized infill, typically made from sand or rubber granules, into the grass fibers to create a dense, plush surface that mimics the feel of natural grass.

Completing the Transformation

Once we install the artificial grass and apply the infill, we make the final touches. Edges are secured, any necessary trimming is performed and the area is thoroughly cleaned, leaving you with a pristine, low-maintenance outdoor space ready for immediate enjoyment.

Post-Install Maintenance and Care

While artificial grass requires significantly less maintenance than natural lawns, regular upkeep is still essential to ensure its longevity and pristine appearance. Routine brushing, raking, and occasional cleaning with a mild detergent solution will keep your artificial turf looking vibrant and fresh for years to come.
