Installation of Synthetic Turf
The quality of any synthetic grass installation starts with it's foundation, just like a building. First, all existing grasses, weeds and plants must be removed below their root bases.
Next the drainage sub-base, installed over the soil of at least 3 inches, consists of a crushed stone. Each layer is compacted until firm. Next, the synthetic turf product of choice is installed over the compacted sub-base and is cut and seamed as needed. At this stage, the synthetic grass fibers are fibrillated using the necessary equipment and if chossen an infill is top dressed onto the grass fibers. This infill is brushed down between the fibers and will surround and support the synthetic grass blades the same way natural earth holds a live grass blade. All perimeter edges are then staked.
