How to Lay Artificial Grass for Temporary Use
After learning about the possibilities and benefits of artificial grass for temporary use last month, this week we are focusing on helping you lay artificial grass to a professional standard.
In order to make sure you are laying artificial grass to the best standard, be sure to follow the guidelines below.
There are four different ways to lay artificial grass for temporary use:
Loose lay: Place the artificial grass on the area you want covered. If you are using the artificial grass outside, you can place objects such as plant pots to hold down areas that strong winds may pick up. However, our artificial grass is able lay flat without movement if you are using it inside.
Underfelt: If you want the surface to have a softer and more absorbent feel, then using an underfelt is the answer. An underfelt is placed underneath the artificial grass, and then you can connect both items by using joints.
Adhesive Fix: Using a polyurethane adhesive to bond the grass to a joining tape or a solid sub-surface ensures the artificial grass will stay in place. The adhesive will cure over between 1 and 12 hours, depending on the temperature where it is placed. Polyurethane adhesive can also be used in damp conditions, which is perfect if you are using artificial grass for temporary use outside.
Mechanical Fix: This option is quick and easy if you are placing artificial grass over a wooden surface. Make sure the artificial grass is in the correct position, and use a staple gun or place nails into the corners of the grass to prevent movement within the artificial grass.
If you are unsure which of the four options will be the best solution when laying down artificial grass, do not hesitate to call Artificial Grass Direct for expert advice.
