Your Most Common Artificial Grass Concerns and Their Solution

Picture this, you are just buying artificial grass for your landscaping and you have no idea how to install or design your lawn to look like the dream space you have always wanted. You can also be wondering how to take that bold step and get artificial grass but are nervous about how to design your home and accommodate the ever-green landscape. The guide provides you with design ideas that will blow your mind without spending the last coin on making your space look adorable.

There is a lot involved when it comes to installing synthetic turf. Sometimes, all the information confuses the buyer, and at other times, they start feeling overwhelmed. It is why Tiger Lily Garden has enlisted some of your most common concerns related to the instalment of artificial grass with their solution.

1. Know the Size and Shape of your Space

It is almost impossible to design your area without knowing how much grass it will take. Therefore, the first step is measuring your space to estimate how much grass coverage you require. This will also help avoid wastage even when your area comes with curvy corners.

2. Have Extra Grass? Don’t worry!

Worried that you might have excess grass after decorating your balcony, lawn, or playground? Since artificial grass can be used both indoors and outdoors, you might think of using the extra grass as a door mat. The mat does not need to be square since you can cut it into your desired shape. This means that the leftover grass despite its shape can be adjusted to a masterpiece design.

3. Look at Design Ideas Online

It is understandable that you might be clueless about how your lawn might look. You might not even feel comfortable simply installing your artificial grass to cover your space. For this reason, it is good to check out homes with artificial grass installed to have an idea of what you might want to settle for. Professionals will also advise on other designs if you don’t find what you are looking for.

4. Determine where you Need to Install your Grass

Different types of artificial grass are installed in different places. That is why each grass has unique features to match its installation area. For instance, sports grass would not have similar features as artificial grass between pavers. Therefore, get to establish the grass suitable to install in your space. This is where professionals come in to advise you about the applications of different products.

5. Be Color Specific

Other artificial grass products come in a variety of colours. This helps you choose the colour you wish to have if you do not prefer to have the typical green grass. You can also seek customized artificial grass where you get to say what you need and it is made according to your desires. One must know the colour to have a perfectly blended environment with an outstanding artificial grass design. If you get overwhelmed by the many available colours, a professional will help narrow down the choices.

Artificial grass has various applications and design ideas waiting to be exploited. However, think of looking for a design idea as a fun experience assisted by a professional if you feel that you cannot do it alone. Before you take that bold step, have a look at the guidelines to give you a clear picture of what to do to make your place look heavenly. You will love your first experience with artificial grass after learning about its design and application.

What if I Choose the Wrong Turf?

This is one of the main concerns of the buyers because there are hundreds of options available. Nobody wants to spend money on a product that’s supposed to last for more than a decade, yet looks offbeat after its instalment. Or, what if you mistakenly install putting green turf for a kids’ playground and the children feel uncomfortable while playing on it?

We suggest you do proper research before buying artificial grass. Simply fill out the form on our website, or send us a message on WhatsApp, we will get back to you shortly with all the desired information you need for your landscaping needs. Your satisfaction is our goal.

What if  Weed Grows Under My Fake Grass?

You must be worried that weeds might grow under your artificial grass and ruin its look. Weed does grow under the turf if you do not properly clean the base before installing the grass roll on the soil. It is important you get rid of weeds and plants before laying your imitation grass on the soil.

We recommend you install a geotextile membrane under the topsoil. The membrane is permeable to air and water but impermeable to light. This will prevent weed growth or any seeds from sprouting into plants.

What Edging System Shall I use?

An edging system is a really important step in the flawless installation of artificial grass. It secures the sub-base and holds the grass in its place. Different edging methods are meant for different bases.

If you are installing your turf on soil, use galvanized U-shaped or straight spiral nails around the perimeter of the lawn. The nails are hammered into the soil, fixing the turf edges.

How to Make the Grass Look Seamless?

There might be a chance that your landscaping area requires more than one grass roll or piece. In that case, it’s natural to be concerned about visible seams in your lawn. Visible joins in the lawn give a very unnatural and unprofessional look, and nobody wants that.

We do not want that for your lawn either! That’s why we advise that you take extra care while joining the two pieces. Make sure the edges are smooth and even. Carefully check the seams from up and down and align them such that both pieces have the same pile direction. Now join them using a strong seam tape.

Infill or No Infill?

To some, adding infill to the grass seems like an extra step. Infill, especially sand infill, does not come cheap, which is why some people tend to skip it. If you are tight on the budget or aiming for indoor installation, you can certainly pass it over.

Tiger Lily Garden strongly advocates using rubber or sand-infill on your grass for that extra oomph. Your lawn will not only look natural and luxuriant but also last longer.

From Where Can I Buy High-Quality Artificial Grass?

Tiger Lily Garden is one of the leading artificial grass manufacturers and suppliers in the market. Buy artificial grass rolls and other products and accessories without worrying about the quality. Our quality assurance team works hard to ensure we deliver premium quality products to every customer.

What Is the Best Thing to Put Under Artificial Grass?

The best thing to put under artificial grass is crushed granite dust. This is called a sub-base. A sub-base allows efficient water permeability and prevents weeds and plant seeds from sprouting. Granite dust is costly but gets the job well done. However, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative, go for sharp sand but it deteriorates the grass over time.

How Do You Get Artificial Grass to Stay in Place?

The edges of your lawn are secured for the artificial grass to stay in place. Either grass nails, sod staples, or an adhesive is used for edging. For laying turf on the soil, grass nails and staples are commonly used, while for imitation grass installed on concrete, it is wise to use an industrial-grade adhesive. After edging, sand infill is added to give the grass an additional weight to stay in place.

What Do You Put Under Artificial Grass on Soil?

You have to put a geotextile membrane on soil under artificial grass. The geotextile membrane is like a polypropylene barrier that halts sunlight to pass through it, suppressing weed growth under the grass. It also prevents the underlying soil from becoming compacted. Compact soil means poor drainage. The underlying geotextile membrane allows proper drainage of water.

How Do You Stop Weeds Coming Through Artificial Grass?

A geotextile paper is laid under the artificial grass roll to stop weeds from coming through. It is an efficient weed barrier as it only allows air and water to pass through, but does not allow light. This prevents weeds from emerging from the dormant seeds in the soil.

Can You Spray Roundup on Artificial Grass?

Yes, you can spray Roundup on artificial grass. Roundup is a broad-spectrum herbicide and kills all the plants that come in its contact, including weeds. Luckily, it does not damage the color or material of artificial grass. Therefore, it is safe to use Roundup on artificial grass as an effective weed killer.

Can You Pour Boiling Water on Artificial Grass?

Yes, you can pour boiling water on Tiger Lily Garden’s artificial grass to prevent weed growth. Boiling water will destroy all plants including weeds, by disrupting the root system of the plant. This ensures that the plant will not grow back. If you are not sure of the quality of your grass, use a weed killer or geotextile membrane to prevent weeds as boiling water can damage your imitation grass.

Can You Lay Artificial Grass Without Edging?

Yes, you can lay artificial grass without edging, but the perimeter of the grass roll will not be secured. The turf will not stay in its position and have ridges. This will reduce the durability and life span of your synthetic turf. An appropriate edging system gives a natural, finished look to the grass.

Do You Need to Put Sand on Artificial Grass?

Yes, if you are installing artificial grass outdoors, we strongly suggest you put sand on it. There are many reasons to add sand infill to your turf.

  1. It increases the life span of your fake lawn grass.
  2. It adds weight to your grass so it stays in place.
  3. Sand infill reflects sunlight and dissipates heat, keeping the grass cooler.
  4. With sand infill, the grass fibers do not lie flat but rather stand in an upright position.
  5. Sand absorbs water and lets it seep through it, thus improving water drainage of the turf.
