What is Artificial Turf & Synthetic Grass
Artificial turf is a surface of synthetic fibers made to look like natural grass. It is most often used in arenas for sports that were originally or are normally played on grass. However, it is now being used on residential lawns and commercial applications as well. The main reason is maintenance—artificial turf stands up to heavy use, such as in sports, and requires no irrigation or trimming. Domed, covered, and partially covered stadiums may require artificial turf because of the difficulty of getting grass enough sunlight to stay healthy. But artificial turf does have its downside: limited life, periodic cleaning requirements, petroleum use, toxic chemicals from infill, and some heightened health and safety concerns.
Here is a link to see the history of Artificial Turf.
Installation Process (Short Version)
- First remove the existing surface of area you want to lay the synthetic turf.
- Using a landscape rake, smooth out area and set grade.
- Cap or adjust any sprinklers in the area.
- Lay a 2oz fabric in area, cut to fit.
- Next, bring in your basework, smooth out and compact.
- Now install the synthetic turf, cut to fit around flower beds, trees, etc.
- Secure all seams and perimeter with mechanical fasteners.
- Using a spreader, spread 2 pounds per square foot of infill on top of the turf.
- You then “broom” in the infill to allow it to drop to the base of the blades.
- Use a leaf blower to clean away any debris
