Step 1: Apply a foundation for the artificial turf

Remove all existing grass and/or existing surface, leaving room for the base material. Install a base of either tiny gravel or sand. Level the surface and then apply an embankment of 4 to 5 cm. If the artificial turf is enclosed with paving, curbs or something similar, the sand/gravel must be kept 1 to 2 cm below the rim.

Step 2: Applying pressure cloth

Roll the pressure distributing cloth over the base material and cut it to size with a Stanley knife. Make sure that there is an overlap of 5 to 10 cm. In order to reduce weed growth, the cloth should connect as closely as possible to the edges.

Step 3: Rolling out the artificial grass

Roll out the turf so that you are looking against the grain.
Take care when rolling out the turf; make sure that you have a excess of 2 to 3 cm on both sides, ensuring there is room for corrections.

Step 4: Cutting artificial grass to size

Always use a sharp Stanley knife and cut
diagonally from the bottom (backing ) to avoid damaging the fibers. If artificial grass is cut along the borders or curb always cut from the top. Cut the first pool of artificial grass with excess ‘backing ‘ at the sides of the roll. Afterwards lay the cut to measurement pieces of artificial grass in succession.
