INSTALLATION

Artificial Turf & Synthetic Grass Installations in Melbourne

Synturf recommends their products to be installed by accredited installers. There are authorised Synturf installers throughout Melbourne and Victoria. Even though the process is quite simple, specialist skills and equipment are required to achieve best results for a perfect lawn. The products and accessories can also be supplied as a D.I.Y project if the installer has competent hands on skills. Please see the below guideline for a step by step process of typical synthetic grass installations.

1
Evaluation and measure
The access to the area needs to be evaluated in order to construct the base. The area needs to be measured and calculated to minimise any excess off-cut.
2
Excavation
Remove the existing old turf and excavate the area to a minimum depth of 100mm.
3
Base-works
Reinstate the base of area with 75mm of crushed rock followed by 15mm of crusher dust.
4
Compact
The base now needs to be levelled and compacted hard so that it remains 10 – 15mm below the surrounding finished levels.
5
Turf installation
The turf is rolled out and positioned in the correct direction. It is then cut into place using a sharp utility knife ensuring all joins are straight and lined up.
6
Joining and securing
The turf is secured to the base using pins around the perimeter and along any join. All joins must be secured with a seaming tape and adhesive using a notched trowel.
7
Infill
The turf is now filled with sand to the required level. Part of filling method is to brush the sand into the base of the fibre to achieve the final result.
8
Grooming
