How Is Artificial Grass Installed?
If you’re reading this, you’ve probably already made the decision to install artificial grass for your Toronto home or commercial property. But you may be wondering, how exactly is artificial grass installed? Whether you’re looking to install an indoor putting green, fresh new backyard landscaping or an indoor aesthetic, the professional staff at EchoingGreen are well-versed in all grass installations. This blog will outline the process of installing artificial grass in Toronto.
Removal & Disposal
For outdoor installation, the first step in the process is removing and disposal of any materials under the artificial turf. We remove the top 2”-3” of your existing yard. That includes removing weeds and/or grass before placing the turf on top to avoid any turf’s growth or movement. For indoor artificial grass installation, it’s important to make sure the floor is clean and clear of any dirt, debris or materials that may create uneven surfaces.
Install a Base Layer
Before installing the actual artificial grass, there should be a base layer installed over the entire area of where the grass will be placed. We first place a weed barrier over the soil/grass area for outdoor turf to prevent any weed growth. Next, we build a base from High-Performance Bedding that is around 3 inches deep to create a stable and levelled surface for the installation.
Rolling Out The Artificial Turf
Once the base layer is secured and stable, it’s time to roll out the turf. Our team will have already measured the area and, with a keen eye for detail, will roll out the turf, properly position it for your space and cut the seams and perimeter.
Seeming & Taping
Because artificial turf is usually installed on a large surface area, the grass is rolled out in individual pieces. That’s why one of the most important steps is using tape and high-quality glue to properly bind the areas where two pieces of artificial turf meet. This process allows for a clean and visually appealing surface.
Secure The Artificial Grass
The job isn’t complete just yet! Another important step to your artificial grass installation in Toronto is using spikes and infill to secure the turf. There’s nothing worse than playing a game of golf with your indoor putting green and someone tripping over loosely installed turf.
Broom & Buff
Lastly, our team will broom and buff the entire surface area of your artificial turf to settle the infill and perk up the plastic blades to look like a real lawn.
