Synthetic grass is a new innovative way to create a beautiful, safe, and eco-friendly landscape
solution that has shown to reduce landscape costs. Whether you are in the market for residential
or commercial use, synthetic turf is a great option that requires minimal resources and
maintenance. Before admiring your beautiful new yard or outdoor space, there are many steps
that must happen prior to reaching the final product!
The old grass, mud, concrete, tile, etc. are removed and the ground leveled and compacted to
ensure a structurally sound foundation for construction. An effective drainage system is an
important component of a synthetic turf system and is designed to carry away the water that
penetrates through the turf. The kind of drainage system depends on the outdoor space, rainfall,
climate, and other factors. Sprinkler systems and irrigation systems can also remain in place
with a synthetic grass system and can help with cooling and dust! Silica sand is then placed
throughout the space prior to installing the turf. Silica sand is highly resistant to crushing and the
absorption of bacteria and other field products. This type of infill will allow for a more realistic
playing surface and provide shock absorption prior to turf installation.
Now that the base materials have been laid, the synthetic grass is ready to be installed. Our team
measures the outdoor space and will lay the turf chosen. Turf comes in rolls similar to carpet and
is cut perfectly to the dimensions of your yard. For synthetic grass systems to be permeable to
water, the turf will have a secondary backing with holes punched at regular intervals to provide
for drainage throughout the system. This will also ensure there is no standing water on the
surface of the grass. Industrial adhesives are used to bond turf seams and inserts. The adhesives
are resistant to water, fungus, and mildew.
How do I keep my synthetic grass as if it was installed yesterday? Maintaining a synthetic
turf yard is essential for the safety, appearance, and longevity. Periodic grooming or brushing
of the turf is important to redistribute the grass throughout the yard. A soft nylon type brush
is recommended to ensure that the grass is uniform in direction. Brushing the grass will also
remove litter, leaves, dirt, or other debris.
