Avengrass synthetic grass has been specially developed to combine the positive properties of natural grass with additional advantages: a long service life, always an attractive green even in the driest summer months, and a lawn that is so easy to harm With minimal maintenance, you will enjoy your Avengrass synthetic grass for years to come. You can simply take care of the maintenance yourself. We as Avengrass team give a 10-year guarantee against discoloration. The artificial turf weighs approx. 3 kg per m2. You have to take into account the volume (2 or 4-meter roll), the weight, and the accessibility of the installation location. For example, a 4-meter wide roll is difficult to transport in a stairwell. So for a roof terrace, it may be necessary to order a 2-meter wide roll or to rent an industrial lift. Get enough help to receive the artificial turf, roll it out and lay it down to fit. In most cases, one person cannot do this on their own. You can then trim the edges on your own. A pressure distributing cloth can be used as an option will. As the name suggests, this cloth distributes the pressure and thus protects the foundation. Both when laying out and when using the artificial turf, the pressure is distributed through the cloth with a point load. In addition, the cloth completely closes the sand bed away. This prevents weeds from growing in the drainage holes in the artificial turf or ants from using the holes as an entrance or exit to their nest. The cloth is delivered on 2-meter-wide rolls. The required quantity is ordered in square meters. In contrast to artificial turf, you do not need to consider a laying plan for the cloth.
What to Consider in Synthetic Grass Installation
If you do not need to use the artificial turf immediately or transport it, make sure that there are no furrows or creases. This will damage the lawn. Always roll up the lawn. Under no circumstances should it be folded, not even for a short time.
- Always check that the measurements of your artificial turf are correct before you cut it. An uncut roll can still be exchanged.
- Check whether the sand bed is thoroughly shaken everywhere. Make sure you don't forget the corners.
- Check whether the edges of the sand bed along the edge finish are properly flat. You mustn't stand tall.
- The ideal temperature for laying artificial turf is between 15 ° C and 25 ° C.
- Plan the installation on a dry day so that any existing seams have enough time to dry.
- The seams must be started thoroughly after being put on. Immediate, intensive (uncontrolled) stepping should be avoided during the first 24 hours so that the seams can dry properly.
Does your lawn have a garden path? Then it is best to lay the path with stepping stones or some other hard paving material. Otherwise, you will need a tape measure and a sharp carpet knife for laying. If the seam looks good and the lawn is lying on the foundation without tension, you can glue the seam. Fold both sides over and roll the ribbon with you the adhesive layer facing up and cut off the required length. Then pull the thin film off the tape so that the adhesive layer is exposed. Now press the seam firmly. Repeat this several times. The seam takes time to adhere properly. You should therefore not open the seam in order to control the adhesion. Start the seam a few times in the first few days. Both the tape and the back of the carpet must be dry. Never glue the seam in the rain. The adhesive strength of the glue decreases at temperatures below 15 ° C. Therefore, glue the seam in good weather. When closing the seam, make sure that there are no turf fibers stuck to the side of the adhesive tape. Otherwise, it remains visible. You can also fold back the artificial turf first before peeling off the foil and then carefully pull the foil through the seam. Proceed carefully and check whether the seam still closes well. (The tape sticks directly to the artificial turf, but of course, the turf can still be laid.)
What Are the Final Touches in Synthetic Grass Installation?
If you still want to anchor the lawn, you can use tent pegs along the edge. You can knock the pegs through the artificial turf. Be careful, however, to use pegs or pegs with a flat head. The artificial turf can possibly be glued onto a hard foundation such as concrete or asphalt. You can have the artificial turf connect directly to the black soil (the edge strip) in synthetic grass installation. However, this will require more intensive maintenance and you will need to prevent soil from getting onto the artificial turf. Therefore, it is better to put a narrow border between the lawn and the soil, for example, a strip of hardwood or aluminum. Complete overview of the laying of synthetic grass:
- Roll out (where there is enough space to cut).
- Measure and cut lengths (for a large lawn).
- Roll out in the garden (pay attention to the correct polar direction!).
- Unfold pages.
- Cut off lawn sides.
- Lay the strips so that they connect well to one another.
- Cut the lawn to size all around.
- Check that the lawn is tidy and without tension.
- Check connection seams.
- Fold the lawn back and press on the seam.
Crucial Tips About Usage and Maintenance
If you remove leaves and other organic material with a leaf blower, for example, and brush synthetic grass fibers regularly with a stiff broom or rake or rake, you will prevent weeds or vegetation in synthetic grass from sprouting. Cleansing our synthetic grass also promotes drainage and prevents it from becoming clogged with contaminants. The use of herbicides is possible if necessary. However, it is easier to counteract the development of weeds and moss than fighting it when weeds and moss are already rooted. You can use a commercially available leaf blower for this. How often leaves have to be blown depends heavily on the conditions on-site. The more trees that shed their leaves, the more often these leaves need to be removed. If a heavy object lies on Avengrass for a long time, for example, an inflatable swimming pool, the grass fibers will be flattened by the pressure. As soon as the object has been removed, the grass fibers can simply be brushed again with a stiff broom or rake, so that the natural look is restored. Over time, marks can remain visible. Winter weather is not a problem for our synthetic grass as Avengrass. The green area is not damaged even by prolonged frost and does not break when stepped on. However, if the snow has trodden into the grass and a layer of ice has formed, this must not be removed by hand, as this will damage the grass fibers. The best way to let the ice melt naturally. Fire and hot objects must be kept away. Our synthetic grass is made of high-quality plastic that is used in melts in contact with fire or hot objects. Should a melting point accidentally occur, you can repair this point. A piece is cut from the artificial turf and a new piece is inserted. However, a difference always remains visible. Weeds can be removed easily by plucking, brushing, or remove rakes from the lawn. Make sure the weeds are removed before they take root. This is especially true for the pages. Thoroughly keeping the lawn clean counteracts weed growth to a great extent and is recommended. Various agents are available in hardware stores and/or garden centers that are biologically effective at killing algae, moss, and weeds. If you strictly follow the instructions for use, these agents cannot harm Royal Grass®.

Artificial turf is always exposed to normal abrasion. Normal abrasion is not a manufacturing defect and is therefore not covered by the scope of the guarantee. In addition to the factors listed above, the amount of abrasion depends, among other things, on the intensity with which the artificial turf is used.
