One of the main reasons for artificial grass creases is the poor installation of your fake grass. It should be noted that whenever you buy a grass roll to lay in your garden, it should be laid flat for at least 24 - 48 hours prior to installation. It will reduce the chances of creases by softening the turf backing.
These 5 easy steps are as follows:
1. Right Infill
Infill before installing fake turf is a very important step. It will help prevent any wrinkles or creases. To avoid lines, you should use the right amount of infill under your synthetic grass, mostly sand silica is recommended.
2. Rest Your Artificial Grass for 1-2 days
After buying your required piece of fake grass, let it rest for 1-2 days, at least 12 hours is recommended. It will help soften the turf backing and ultimately reduce the risk of creases.
3. Ensure the Weed membrane is laid flat
You need to make sure the weed membrane is laid flat and smooth. There should be no folds and it is fully flattened and stretched out.
4. Brush the affected area
Heat can make your grass look lumpy. You should brush the affected area to prevent the lines and smoothen the grass.
5. Secure your grass properly
Lastly, make sure you secure your grass properly at the edges. You can use galvanized nails to secure the entire perimeter of your lawn.
