Considering this, what is the best base for artificial turf?

Generally, CMB is the best choice for artificial grass in landscaping while DG is the best choice if you're installing a putting green.

Also, what sand do you put under artificial grass? For best results, you should lay your turf on a 35mm layer of compacted sharp sand. To maintain levels it may be necessary to remove an equivalent amount of the topsoil. It is unwise to leave vegetable material under your new grass as this will rot down unevenly. The ground or sand should be compacted.

Likewise, people ask, how do you nail down artificial turf?

With a utility knife, cut off first stitch of fabric from both sides of the turf. Using 5” or 6” nails, nail down one side of the turf. Space nails out approximately 4” around the perimeter and seams and about 1” from the edge. Nail the turf approximately 18” – 2' spacing in the middle.

How much does it cost to install fake grass?

In general, artificial turf costs $5-$20 per square foot, while professionally laid natural grass sod costs less than $1 per square foot. For a 500-square-foot yard, assuming an average installation cost for turf of $12.50 per square foot, installing artificial grass would cost $6,250; grass would cost about $185.

How do you anchor an artificial lawn?

Spread a thin layer of silica sand over the lawn, using a shovel to toss it. Brush the sand into the lawn using a strong-bristled push broom; the sand sinks beneath the blades onto the turf's backing. Add more sand at least once a year to help keep the turf evenly anchored.

Can you lay artificial grass directly on soil?

Unfortunately laying artificial grass directly on top of soil or existing grass just will not work. We recommend removing a minimum of 75mm (3 inches) below the finished height of your lawn, which includes removing all existing grass and weeds. For poor draining areas, we recommend excavating to 100mm (4 inches).

How do you hide joins in artificial grass?

When both sections of synthetic turf are secure and the seam is perfectly in place, fold open both edges of the two sections to expose the subgrade. Place SGW seam tape down the center of the seam and secure with spikes, nails or staples. This will prevent the seam tape from rippling while placing the glue.
