How to install artificial grass on soil

Artificial grass is an excellent option for all types of gardens. It is durable and requires minimal maintenance. If you’re considering installing artificial turf in your garden but don’t have a concrete base, don’t worry. You can install artificial grass on soil.

Here are the steps to install artificial grass on soil:

  1. Prepare the ground: The first step is to prepare the ground for the installation of artificial turf. This involves removing weeds, leveling the ground, and compacting it.
  2. Level the ground: The ground should be level for the artificial grass to settle properly. If the ground is not level, the artificial grass can become uneven or wrinkled. You can level the ground using a shovel or a compactor.
  3. Compact the ground: Once the ground is level, you should compact it to make it firm. This will help prevent the artificial grass from shifting or deforming over time. You can compact the ground using a compactor or a roller.
  4. Lay down weed barrier fabric: Weed barrier fabric is a layer of material placed between the artificial grass and the soil. This fabric helps prevent weed growth and protects the artificial grass from sharp objects.
  5. Secure the weed barrier fabric to the ground: You can secure the weed barrier fabric to the ground using staples, nails, or adhesive tape.
  6. Add gravel: Gravel is used for drainage. Compact it to make it smooth.
  7. Lay the artificial grass: Once you’ve added the gravel, you can lay the artificial grass. Make sure the artificial grass is stretched out properly without any wrinkles.
  8. Spread silica sand and brush it in: It’s best to do this with a professional brush that professionals use.
  9. Water to settle: After spreading the sand, water it well. This will help the silica sand settle and the artificial grass to stay in place.

With these simple steps, you can install artificial grass on soil in your garden.

Additional Tips:

  • For best results, use high-quality artificial grass, such as Econatura’s.
