Lay the artificial grass. Allow approx. 50mm surplus at edges so that you can trim perfect edges.
Apply adhesive to the tape and then fold back the grass taking care not to squeeze the adhesive up onto the grass strands.
To anchor the grass, a layer of silica sand should be added to the grass and brushed using a rotary brush. This will make the grass stand up and will leave you with a natural finish.
Remove all surface imperfections and thoroughly clean and dispose of dirt, paint, grease or any residue which will prevent good adhesion for fixing the grass to the surface.
For decking – attach the grass with screws so that the decking can be checked for damage or resealed after installation.
For concrete – attach the grass using glue or Hilti nails.
For cobble – we suggest just using glue along trip hazards and using sand infill to weigh down the grass to make sure the cobbles are left undamaged.
