Artificial Grass / July 5, 2018 / Lenore
In the old time if you are looking for a substitute for natural grass you only have very limited choices. You can consider installing huge rock garden in your home or use artificial grass for your area. Few years back you can buy only one type of artificial grass which looks pretty fake. But these days thing is getting better. The users now have a number of options when it comes to installing artificial lawn. This has encouraged more and more people wanting to use artificial instead of real grass.
While you should endeavour not to put adhesive onto the carpet small amounts of glue can be removed from the artificial grass fibre using White Spirit and a small off cut of the artificial grass. Small amounts of cured glue can usually be removed. To avoid this situation and the possibility of damage to the artificial grass care and precautions should be taken to avoid contact with the fibres at all times. When the artificial grass has been jointed and glued and you are happy with the levels screw the grass to the timber perimeter framework using galvanised screws at a minimum of 12 inch intervals.
Spread Sand (Optional depending on Grass Selected). When the artificial grass has been laid use silica sand which is kiln dried and brush into carpet as you go. Each product could have sand infill but this is only used to stabilise the carpet and at no time should the sand be visible. You must obtain an even spread over the surface using a brush to build up the depth in layers. Do not apply the sand in one application. Brush sand into pile immediately after laying while the artificial grass is dry and while weather is good.
