Installation

In principle, artificial grass can be installed on any surface, as long as a few basic rules are observed. Installing ResiGrass yourself is absolutely not difficult and our team is ready to answer your questions.

Every surface becomes immediately beautiful with artificial grass and requires very limited maintenance. You can very quickly transform outdated and cracked tile floors, unfinished concrete floors or rough surfaces, to which filth attaches itself all too quickly, into a beautiful green lawn. Areas with slight deformations can be smoothed away with ResiBase without having to break open existing constructions so that a complete renovation can take place at minimal expense.

INSTALL RESIGRASS IN THREE SIMPLE STEPS

REQUIREMENTS:

  • RESIGRASS
  • RESIBASE, RESIGEO or RESISHOCK
  • RESITAPE or RESIBAND + RESIGLUE
  • RESIFIX or RESINAIL
  • SHARP CUTTER KNIFE
  • FOR THE SOIL please see the adjacent instructions

 

1. SURFACE PREPARATION

In order to enjoy your ResiGrass for many carefree years, a proper and sound preparation of the surface is absolutely necessary and not difficult at all.

Consult the procedure depending on the surface, explained on the next page.

Do not hesitate to contact us should something be unclear or you still have questions.

2. INSTALL INTERMEDIATE LAYER

The intermediate layer is usually absolutely necessary, but can be omitted in specific instances. 

RESIGEO: this is a woven pressure-distributing textile cloth that is absolutely necessary on unpaved or semi-paved surfaces in order to prevent weeds growing out from the soil layer through the perforated turf.  ResiGeo is supplied on rolls and is easy to roll out over the prepared surface. Each track must overlap the adjacent track so that no openings or cracks will form.

 

RESIBASE: this layer of synthetic material is ideal for use on (semi-)paved surfaces with the following important characteristics

  • increased comfort: a lawn does not lie on a concrete or hard surface. This intermediate layer provides you with a "softer"' surface that feels much more comfortable.
  • weed-resistant: just like ResiGeo, this layer also ensures that no weeds grow through the turf
  • water buffer: a paved or concrete surface does not absorb any water so that flooding can occur during heavy rainfall.  This intermediate layer creates a buffer that ensures gradual drainage of the rainwater. This is a very desirable effect on, among other things, roofs.
  • smoothing small uneven areas: the ResiBase is a flexible material that takes care of small uneven areas in the surface (for example, uneven areas or broken tiles, joints, etc.)

ResiBase is supplied in plates of 1 x 1 m or 2 x 1 m. Standard gauge is 0.6 cm. Place the plates properly against each other and possibly place one strip of ResiGeo on the seams.

RESISHOCK: a specially designed system that can be installed where a shock-resistant effect is desired, such as, for example, under playgrounds, on recreational grounds, and the like. ResiGrass has HIC (Head Injury Criterion) certified systems for the installation on public grounds that must comply with these standards. Contact our experts. We would be happy to provide you with comprehensive information about this subject.

ResiShock is supplied in plates of 2 x 1.5 m. The gauge is variable according to the HIC standard to be followed. Place the plates properly against each other and possibly place one strip of ResiGeo on the seams.

 

3. INSTALL RESIGRASS

When the surface has been properly prepared and any intermediate layer has been installed, the installation of the artificial grass is rather simple. It is best to first create an installation plan in order for this process to proceed smoothly.  We would be happy to provide this plan for you free of charge. During the installation you should observe the following:

  • in order to get proper adhesion of the glue, the ambient temperature should be a minimum 12 to 15° C and it may not be raining
  • all the tracks should be placed in the same direction in order to obtain the best visual result

  • the blades always tend to a specific direction (you will notice this when you unroll the turf). You should ensure that the blades point towards you when you are at the location where you usually have a view of the grass
  • first install the tracks in accordance with the installation plan and ensure that the seams connect nicely. Use a strong sharp cutting knife (Stanley type) for cutting the turf into the proper size. In order to prevent cutting through the blades of grass, on only cut at the backside of the turf (backing) and therefore, for this purpose, place the turf upside down or fold it briefly.

  • Once you have placed the tracks nicely next to each other, fold the turf length-wise about 15 cm to the inside so that you can place the adhesive strip ResiTape or ResiBase with ResiGlue, in order to glue the seams
  • after placing the adhesive strip, fold the turf back and press the seams together well and on the adhesive strip

  • after applying the glue DO NOT WALK ON THE INSTALLED TURF FOR A MINIMUM OF 24 HOURS so that the seams can adhere properly.
  • finally, attach the turf to the surface according to the described procedure (see the various installation options) with ResiFix or ResiNail

It is possible that there is some shrinkage or expansion of the turf after the installation, due to temperature fluctuations. This is perfectly normal and can be easily remediedas follows:

  • by expansion: loosen the perimeter of the turf, pull it tight, attach it again to the soil and carefully cut off any excess.
  • by shrinkage: Make sure that during the installation, you do not cut off the turf too narrowly on the outer edges of the premises so that no openings or cracks are created with any shrinkage. There is space if the turf then shrinks. You then also loosen the attachment so that the turf can "relax", then pull it tight and attach it again.

In order to get the blades of grass to stand up nicely, we recommend brushing the grass in the opposite direction with a rough brush two days after the installation.
