We advocate four X 2 inches of tantalised handled timber for heavy clay soil areas and poorly draining areas and a couple of X 2 inches of tantalised timber for good draining areas. Screw these timbers to the stakes leaving the stakes on the within of the perimeter. Ought to the Synthetic Grass meet a concrete path, wall or decking, place the timber flush with the floor top and through the use of 10mm non permanent fillet, pack the timber near the wall leaving the area to allow you to tuck the Synthetic Grass between the timber and the adjoining materials at a later stage.
Place the stakes towards the interior perimeter timber edging and hammer in to the bottom guaranteeing the stakes are barely decrease than the timber edging. Subsequent screw the timber stake to the timber edging.
With heavy clay soils we advocate laying a crushed stone floor of as much as three inches. This is not going to be vital for almost all of areas and solely required if in case you have a excessive water desk the place the bottom holds water for a protracted time period after it rains. Subsequent compact the bottom utilizing a vibrating plate that may be employed from an gear rent firm. Make sure the perimeter is compacted and beneath the timber edging by 1 inch. Infill the perimeter with sharp sand and stage utilizing a rake. Make sure the sand is stage to the highest of the timber edging and compact once more.
For good drainage areas unfold a layer of sharp sand to blind over the soil. Subsequent compact the bottom utilizing a vibrating plate that may be employed from an gear rent firm. Make sure the perimeter is compacted and stage with the timber edging.

Roll out Synthetic Grass
Lay the Synthetic Grass within the desired path engaged on the carpet and never on the levelled base. Make sure the carpet is positioned to minimise cuts, joints and waste overlaying the timber edging by a minimal of four inches. If the unreal grass meets a path or edge, and if in case you have laid the timber edging accurately as beforehand described, then the unreal grass could be wedged between. If becoming a member of, please make sure that the unreal grass is laid with the pile working in the identical path on every bit. Lay the carpet on high of the sand versus dragging it throughout the bottom materials.

Fold again edges and place jointing tape (clean aspect down) in order that the perimeters of the carpet meet the tape when joined.
