2. PREP BEFORE-DEMOLITION

Before the demolition can commence, all utilities (electrical, gas, water, etc.) including all sprinklers must be properly located to eliminate unnecessary problems. Depending on the preference, the sprinkler system can be capped for use at a later point in time, or we can completely remove it altogether. Any additions or changes to the existing utilities must be accounted for at this time.

3. DEMOLITION

A bobcat (where applicable) should be used to demolish your existing soft-scape and/or hardscape surface. In areas where the bobcat cannot access, or if a bobcat is not necessary, other demolition tools be used to remove the hardscape and/or soft-scape. Saw-cutting may be necessary along areas where the foundation is protruding into the usable space in the front, back or side yard areas.

4. EXCAVATION

Excavate 100 to 110 mm from the final grade.all depends on what type of artificial grass installation require.lets just say if you want to drive a car on artificial grass it requires a different type of base to support the white of the car.in this case we will remove 100 or 110 mm dirt and install 50 mm of road base and 50 mm of blue metal dust Aussie slang “cracker dust “.normel foot traffic 65 mm blue metal dust is more than enough.as shown in the video below

5. GRADING & DRAINAGE

7. SUB-BASE COMPACTING

Use a plate compactor to compact the sub-base. This is crucial as we do not want to have any air gaps in our system. If you skip this step, it will lead to undulations or depressions later on.

8. WEED KILLER

until this point, all the weeds are gone now this is a good time to use weed killer.Spray the entire area rather generously with weed killer to reduce the chances of weeds appearing in the future.

9. BASE PREPARATION & COMPACTION

prepare 60mm of Blue mettle(Normel foot traffic) dust which will be dispersed throughout the entire footprint of your turf project. Once the base has been set, we will hose the base down, and compact it until we reach a compaction level of 95%. At this point, as it is literally hard as a rock, which is exactly what you want.

11. TURF PREPARATION (MEASURE, CUT & ROLL)

Make sure to roll the turf completely out and allow it to sit in the sun during the initial preparation process. Since the turf has been rolled up like carpet, we will want to make sure to eliminate any wrinkles and bunching. If you skip this step, you may see air-pockets in your turf later down the line as the artificial grass has a chance to completely settle.

With proper planning, proceed to position the turf for installation. The goal is to have as few seams as possible and with proper planning, this can be achieved every time. Once the fake grass is positioned properly, remove the excess turf that will not be needed, which will make it much easier to work with.

12. JOINING & TRIMMING

Once the artificial turf has been perfectly laid out and all the excess material has been trimmed, we are now ready to seam the pieces together. It is important to make sure that all the rolls of grass are laid in the same direction so that the blades all point the same way.( Remember the good old saying Mesure twice cut once )

There are several seaming techniques, and the actual technique used for a particular job can vary from job to job depending on the circumstance. The various techniques include utilising seaming tape in conjunction with adhesives(glue) to sewing to the most popular residential application being u pins& nails.

14. INFILL PREPARATION

To get the turf ready for the infill installation, you will want to use a power broom and sweep the turf in the opposite direction that the blades are pointing. This will prop the blades upright and allow for the infill to properly penetrate the grass to the base of the turf.

15. INFILL INSTALLATION

Use a standard seed drop spreader to install the infill. The infill is used to help weigh down the turf, assist with blade recovery, soften the feel under your feet, and depending on the actual infill you use, there may be other benefits (i.e. antimicrobial, prevents degradation, reduced heat consumption/overheating). You will need to determine the amount of infill to use in advance because you will want to leave 30 mm of the blade of grass exposed. The amount of infill to install will depend on the specific synthetic lawn you choose. The metric will be kg per sq meter, in terms of how many kg of infill you will need per meters of artificial grass.

Walk the project to see if there are any blades of grass that are out of place. If everything looks perfect, then hose down your new lawn which will complete the infill install and now your artificial turf installation is complete and ready for use.
