To lay your lawn, you will need a large ruler and a cutter as well as possibly geo-textile, felt and glue. Remember to buy sand ballast to keep your hair straight if you do not choose a ready-to-lay lawn that does not require using it.

The procedure for placement is then straightforward:

  • Prepare your surface by cleaning the soil with plant remains and stones.
  • Pass the rake and, if necessary, the heavy roller to smooth the surface.
  • First, install a geo-textile felt: it will be easier to repair the joints of the bands.
  • Then lay the lawn: start at an angle and unwind your la (roll) on the ground. If it is necessary to cut it, continue with the help of the cutter, spreading the hairs well to make a straight cut.
  • Then place the second next to the first, overlapping it a few millimeters to hide the link. Take care of this joint that will guarantee the beauty of your lawn.
  • Do this across the surface.
  • Once the surface is covered, go for the finishes by cutting off the excess peat to get a natural effect, especially around the trees and along the paths.
  • Install a strip under the junctions between two wires.
  • Tape the tape (using two-component glue as directed by the manufacturer) and replace the gaskets, gently.
  • Now you can fasten them with some carpenter nails if needed, mainly to keep the edges.
  • Then spread the ballast sand evenly and straighten the “bristles” to give your lawn a natural look.

Placing on Slab or Tile

  • The placement on the plate or flooring is no more complicated than the previous one. It requires the same tools, i.e., the rule of a mason and a cutter to which you will add glue.
  • Degreaser the tile surface with a floor cleaner, rinse and allow to dry if it is a concrete screed, vacuum. If necessary, place a geo-textile on the entire surface to be covered.
  • Start at an angle and unroll the right side of the surface.
  • Smooth the lawn and cut it to the desired length.
  • Place the next along the previous one, being careful that the joint is perfectly accomplished.
  • Continue to the end and make the finishes taking care not to move the objects in this operation.
  • Prepare your glue according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Remove the first one and glue the surface, then replace it with the glue. Gently well to make him adhere.
  • Do the same for all pre-prepared files and make sure you participate.
  • Then spread the ballast and if necessary.
