Artificial Grass: Tips for Beginners

Written by Artificial Turf Supply Commercial & Residential Division

Are you thinking about purchasing synthetic grass for your home? Great news! Today’s latest synthetic turf products are made to look and perform like natural grass, except they don’t require the same amount of work. For example, fake grass doesn’t have to be watered, mowed, or fertilized. It doesn’t have to be repaired after heavy rain or rejuvenated after the summer months. But if you’re new to fake grass, it might seem like a complicated project. The good news is that with the right tools and preparation, installing a synthetic lawn is relatively easy. Here are a few tips for beginners.

Preparation Matters

Preparing the ground for fake grass is an important factor in the installation process, one that should be done properly. The preparation phase includes several steps, including but not limited to measuring and outlining, removing topsoil, and rough grading. If you’re not experienced in these techniques, you might want to hire a professional or study the installation manual and learn how to do each step on your own.

Ask for Help

While many people enjoy DIY projects (and installing fake grass certainly qualifies as a relatively easy DIY project) people who are new to the material might require help. Depending on the size of your project, you might need assistance with unloading the products from the delivery truck. You might also need assistance with preparing the ground and installing the fake grass.
