Royal Grass® gives a 9 to 15 year warranty on your artificial grass. The warranty that is given in years, depends on the UV strength at the location where the artificial grass is laid. Please refer to your local reseller for local conditions and the valid warranty terms. In this manual you will find all the information you need to install Royal Grass® yourself.
Royal Grass® must be installed on a base that: is sufficiently stable; has sufficient bearing capacity; is perfectly level; has proper drainage. Base components are comparable to those used for decorative pavement and terraces. Generally a layer of road base sand or breaker sand of 10 centimetres will suffice, depending on soil conditions.
The first step when buying artificial grass for a garden is to calculate how many metres are needed and where to make the seams. This can be done by drawing up an installation plan like you see on the left.
Points of attention:
- When installing Royal Grass® on areas broader than 4 metres; make sure you lay the rolls in parallel. Rotating or flipping the artificial grass will give an optical color difference (such as with patterned wallpaper).
- Royal Grass® is delivered on 2-metre or 4-metre wide rolls.
- Include at least an extra 15 cm for both the width and the length to compensate for losses when cutting the artificial turf to size.
- Artificial grass comes with a pile direction. It is advisable to lay pile direction so that it points to your favourite vantage point: generally the (main) terrace. The pile direction is always lengthwise on the roll, never widthwise.
