What to do when installing artificial lawn on your own
Have you ever wondered why people put sand to the soil before installing artificial lawn? There is a reason for it – to get rid of uneven surfaces.
The sand place on your artificial lawn is called – an artificial grass infill. There are many types of infill which include crumb tire. But why should you put anything harmful to your backyard, especially if you have kids and pets? Ensure you keep your lawn pet-friendly and child-friendly. Click here.
Ensure that the location is stripped from all existing grass, weeds and vegetation. Any large or protruding stones on the surface must also be removed. This guarantees you’ll have an even surface.
Spread over a thin layer of sand infill. Screed it out to level and consolidate the surface.
Okay, others think that layering the base is enough to install their artificial lawn. Sadly, it isn’t. You need to add a fabric layer on top of your sand base.
This ensures absolutely NO weed will ever grow into your lawn. Otherwise, it will mean disaster, which entails an additional cost for you.
Oh yeah! You’ve got the wonderful green lawn which is envied by all your neighbours. But what happens to it during the rainy season? Does it leave a puddle in your backyard?
So how do you solve this? Find an artificial grass that has effective drainage mechanism. Otherwise, install your artificial grass in a slope. Let gravity help you pull water towards the drain naturally.

Now that you have an even base, adequate weed barriers, and great drainage, what’s next? You need to ensure that your joins are also even. This is difficult to repair in the future and makes your lawn looks unprofessionally installed.

Avoid the edges of your artificial grass from fraying and curling up. Secure these using any of these two methods:
> Nailing the edges
> Glueing it
