Artificial Turf Installation Process
- Design phase: In the design phase for installing artificial turf, we meet with you to discuss your project and what your desired outcome is. We also look at the area you want to install artificial turf to determine the soil condition, existing drainage capacity, and existing design elements—and to take measurements of the area.
- Ground preparation: During this phase, we locate any underground irrigation or electrical lines that need to be avoided and determine the best course of action for removing the top layer of soil. We then level the ground and install the base surface, including the drain, level it, and compact it.
- Artificial grass installation: Once the ground is prepared and the base layer is smooth, we will unroll the layer of artificial turf, trimming it so it fits within the specified design. We then secure the new layer of turf to the ground and apply weather-resistant adhesive.
- Infill application: After the artificial turf is in place, we place an infill material on top, which will settle down on the base in between the blades of grass. The infill helps eliminate pet odor, protect the turf from the elements, and keep the grass fluffy and level.
