Area is marked out for excavation.
Step Two :
We excavate to a depth of 150mm leaving a slight fall for water run off.
Step Three :
The area is filled with approximately a 120mm depth of crushed rock and a 20mm layer of crushed dust.
Step Four :
Prepare base – level out, spray water over base and then compact with vibrating plate whacker. Make sure no stones are protruding above level surface. Keep base 20mm below original surface.
The Grass is laid in the same direction each time.
Cut off excess turf with a sharp knife. To ensure straight cuts, use the same row of yarn as your latex backing.
Fold back the seams of both rolls – keep clear of glue. Add adhesive glue to tape with notched trowel. Place one side of grass to middle of the tape, then the other to match up with the other piece. Mesh the fibre together with fingers or brush.
Infill into the synthetic pile with a specific silica sand (which doesn’t retain moisture), and rubber crumb granules.
With either a ‘stiff’, hard broom or power broom, sweep the infill into the synthetic grass.
