Installation Tip: Giving Yourself the Proper Base

Artificial grass is an environmentally friendly solution that keeps outdoor spaces green and lush without the hassle of constant maintenance.  The synthetic surface saves an average of 55 gallons of water per square foot each year, has eliminated the need for millions of pounds of fertilizers and pesticides, and helps reduce noxious emissions from lawn mowers.  In landscape applications, synthetic turf can be used in residential homes and commercial facilities, play areas, festival and event spaces, and for pets.  Turfscape offers a full line of quality synthetic landscape products to meet the unique and varying needs of our customer base and applications.

In order to keep an outdoor space with synthetic grass looking pristine, correct installation of the product is crucial.  If you choose to install the fake grass yourself, or even if you have an installation team, it is important to use the correct tools and follow the installation guide provided by Turfscape.  One of the most commonly skipped steps comes when laying the rock aggregate.  Rock aggregate is used to level your base so that the final yard is smooth and stable.  However, it is important to allow your sub-base (the compacted ground with weed/grass killer) to dry completely before laying any rock aggregate.  This reduces settling and ensures proper compaction for the surface.

Achieving and maintaining a perfect yard or outdoor area is easy with Turfscape.  With proper installation and minimal routine maintenance, your outdoor space can look picture perfect all year round.
