By laying out artificial grass, you will add a glowing atmosphere that will bring your garden to life. However, many homeowners struggle when it comes to laying out their synthetic grass in their homes. So, in a bid to make it easier for you, we have a step-by-step guide to show you how to do it.
This guide will show you:
Join us as we work together on your DIY artificial grass installation project. If you have any questions or prefer to leave this task to professionals, you can get in touch with our installations team. Now, let’s get right into your turf laying checklist!
Before you start the installation process, make sure that you have the following tools and equipment ready:
Before anything else, you have to assess how much artificial turf you need for your garden or yard. Measure the size of the area and always include a little bit extra in case of emergency. Once you have your dimensions, speak to the experts at Premier Grass about the type of artificial turf you want. They will have it delivered to your property when requested.
Before you start rolling out your artificial grass, you are going to need to establish a levelled foundation first. This approach will vary depending on the type of foundation you plan to roll out your grass on. When it comes to price, our installation cost might vary depending on your base.
Below, we have broken down how to lay out your artificial turf on the most common bases, in three or less easy steps.
2.Now, look towards levelling out your concrete or installing a drain before anything else.
3.When completed, add 5mm of foam underlay (making it softer under your floor), before rolling out the synthetic grass over it.
Although concrete and pavers are considered to be different, the same approach of laying turf works for both surfaces. Follow the above steps under “How To Install Artificial Turf On Concrete” when it comes to pavers, and you will end up with the same pleasant results.
2.You can now apply a layer of crushed stone over it, and follow the same steps used to apply both dirt and soil foundations. See above: “How To Lay Fake Grass On Dirt”.
Slowly lay out your artificial turf over the newly formed foundation. Collect and hammer down your pegs into the ground evenly along the edge and leaving around 300mm - 400mm of space in between.
If you have concrete floors, use super concrete based glue, instead of turf pegs.
Don’t nail down the pegs all the way, or glue too close to the edges, as you will need space for the adhesive joining tape (more on that below).
Slowly roll the next layer of synthetic turf next to it, and nail it down again. Don’t leave any spaces between the turfs, and ensure that the grass fibres all point in the same direction so that it maintains a smooth flow. Your artificial lawn will now be a secured feature of your yard.
Lift up the edges of the synthetic turf and roll out the adhesive joining tape, with the sticky side facing upwards. Make sure the tape is spread evenly along all the edges between the slabs of artificial grass.
When you’re happy with this, lift the adhesive off the tape and tightly press down the first slab of synthetic grass over it. Follow the same steps with the next piece of grass until all turfs are connected tightly.
If you like the fake grass look, then you can stop at this step. However, if you want to give your artificial grass that realistic look and feel, bring out your white sand for this step. You will need roughly 10 to 15 kgs of sand for every square metre, as it will give you good coverage.
Pour the sand over the turf and use your broom (or rake) to spread the sand and embed it into the lawn evenly. You can now slightly water it to get rid of that fake grass feeling and make your synthetic turf look more realistic.

As amazing as natural grass, there comes a lot of responsibility with maintaining it. You have to consider watering it, mowing it, fertilising it and keeping it safe in both extreme heat and cold. At the end of all this effort, your grass might not even be in a decent condition.
This is where artificial grass comes in.
Easy to maintain, cost-effective in the long run and always looking fresh, synthetic grass has made its way into households throughout Australia. Homeowners now can see the value of investing in artificial grass in Sydney for their properties.

Just like anything else though, there are plenty of different factors to consider when it comes to deciding what is the best artificial grass to buy.
When it comes to choosing the best fake grass from a huge range, here are the factors that you have to consider:
If you have experienced the sunlight in Australia, you know you are dealing with something that is a little different to the rest of the world. Australia has some of the strongest UV rays in the world, so it imperative that the artificial grass is UV treated and protected, so it doesn’t melt away.
In its more basic terms, the thicker the fibre, the stronger the grass. If you notice that the grass is flimsy, it means its weak and doesn’t have a high resistance to wear and tear.
For the best synthetic grass, you are going to determine the quality of the stitching. The denser the stitching, the softer it is under your feet. So you when you walk over it, you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed.
The back of the carpet is called the backing. This is where the grass is stitched into the carpet. Cheaper quality artificial grass usually has one stitch. It won’t last long. You need to look for double or triple stitched backing, so you get the best grass on the market.
There are several different type of turf colours available on the market. You can go for a bright green, a dull green or a natural green. Deciding on which one depends on what you want it for, and if it matches the decor of your surroundings.
Determining the type of grass ‘blade’ on an artificial grass option is important so you have a firm idea if it durable enough to withstand heavy traffic, as well as remain soft. Each turf has different blades so you will have to inquire to find the right one for you.
By combining these factors you will be able to get the best synthetic grass reviews available on the internet. We have those reviews for you below:
When it comes to finding the best artificial grass review on the internet, you have to start with the most commonly purchased synthetic grass: landscaping grass.
