Green is beautiful, and so is a well-groomed lawn. However, taking care of a lawn can be difficult sometimes. From watering to grooming, a lawn has a lot of requirements to maintain a healthy green effect. It is even more complicated when you work stressful hours every day or have to travel frequently. What started as a friendly, green patch might end up looking like a big brown smudge.
How then can you have a lawn without all the hassle of regular care and maintenance? Well, the answer is artificial grass. Artificial grass allows you to have the look of a healthy lawn just like everybody else, yet without the extras to keep it that way. And you don’t have to use water!
There are professional artificial grass installers equipped to do the job, but you might want to do it yourself, get your hands a little dirty, and feel the earth between your fingertips. The good news, laying artificial grass is a simple DIY project.
Before you begin, you will need the following tools;
A sharp knife and spare blades
Knee pads and a pair of gloves
Roller or tamper
Stiff outdoor broom or motorized power brush
Large galvanized nails
Remove your old lawn:
Your old lawn has to go for the new one to replace it. If your lawn is still healthy, you can offer it to your neighbor looking to add more patches. You have to rent a sod cutter to do the job. If it is beyond saving, you can remove the clumps and level the area.
