Step # 3 Check the Drainage
This is a very important step, make sure to check the existing drainage of your concrete path. The pathway to be covered with fake grass needs to be drained properly. It should have a slight fall/dip, if not then use a hammer drill in a poorly drained area. Now your concrete area is ready for the grass layer. You can use an underlay but it is optional.
Step # 4 Measure & Lay Artificial Grass
Now, it’s time to measure the required size of grass you need and lay it properly. You can use a knife to properly cut the grass section needed. After laying the grass, secure the joint using glue or adhesive. Remember not to use too many adhesives as it prevents the water from draining and can cause you a water-logging issue.
Step # 5 Add Sand and Brush
The last step of the easy guide to install artificial grass on concrete is when your artificial turf is fully dry, make sure to spread the sand evenly and brush the grass to keep the fibers upright. The sand will help to pin the grass to the floor.
