If you want to install your artificial grass on your own, then you would have to know more about it. Start by determining the materials used for its construction. By doing so, you would be aware of the things or situations which can destroy it. Fake grass may have a minimum lifespan of 15 years but complete negligence and lack of minimal yet proper maintenance by its owner can lead it to lose its “shine” even only after a few years.
As a homeowner, you would also need to know the basic steps of artificial grass installation and how to do them the right way. Take the setting up of a root barrier as an example. If you don’t perform this step properly and if you don’t place the barrier in every corner of the lawn, then there’s a great possibility that your fake grass would eventually look fake in the long run.
Thus, take your time in allowing yourself to get acquainted with everything that you need to know about artificial grass. Compile the websites featuring it. Watch more than one instructional video so you can have every detail covered as well.
Be concerned about the proper maintenance of an artificial lawn too. How many times in a week do you need to water it? What do you do if a portion of the turf accidentally gets burned? The answers to these questions can easily be found in the official websites of most garden centers so make sure that you have included these sites in your research.
Now, when it comes to putting your turf down, you just have to be careful in doing so. Also, seam the parts of the turf if you have too. However, pay special attention to this process since misplaced seaming tapes can actually affect the overall appearance of your fake lawn.
Moreover, see to it that no edges would be seen in the middle of the hardscape and edging. Put the proper infill (earth compound, stone dust, tiny rocks and different sands) too for they can ensure the condition of the glass blades for your utmost convenience.
