Installing artificial grass carpeting is a project that most Do-It-Yourselfers can easily accomplish. The product is fairly inexpensive and only requires a few basic tools for installation.
The tools and materials required for installation are:
- Measuring tape ruler
- 6 Inches more of artificial grass around the perimeter of the exact measurement
- Flooring adhesive
- Notched spreader
- Utility knife with extra blades
- and a lot of patience
In any carpeting project the first step is to measure the width of the area to determine how many 6 feet or 12 feet wide pieces of carpeting is needed.
Grass carpeting along with the installation tools can be found in home centers such as City Mill and is sold in 6 feet wide and 12 feet wide rolls. The quality of the artificial grass varies in their backing that ranges from a flexible marine back to a stiff back that looks like regular jute carpet. All types are waterproof and can be installed indoors or outdoors.
