Are you considering adding artificial turf to your home? Perhaps you’re unsure about where to start. Nowadays, it feels like you can’t throw a rock without hitting someone calling themselves an artificial grass installer.
However, how do you know if your artificial grass installer is effective? One critical way of finding the proper artificial turf installer is by learning how they prepare and measure landscapes before installing synthetic grass. A reputable artificial grass installer will take the time to measure every last detail of your landscape, ensuring a perfect and lasting fit for your home.
How Do Artificial Grass Installers Measure Your Lawn?
To put it simply, artificial grass can be seen as one big outdoor carpet. Just like indoor carpet, artificial grass installers will measure the width and length of your landscape, in feet.
Most of the synthetic grass rolls provided by Grizzly Turf come in the default measurements of 15 feet wide by 100 feet long; our artificial grass installers will compare the dimensions of our rolls to the dimensions of your lawn and make decisions to cut or add accordingly.
Finding Dimensions for Square and Rectangular Landscapes
To properly calculate the amount of synthetic grass needed for your lawn, your artificial grass installer will need to consider the shape of your lawn; in most cases, square or rectangular lawns are the easiest to measure.
For square or rectangular lawns, artificial grass installers will measure the width and length of your lawn in feet and determine the square footage. If your lawn is 15 feet wide and 15 feet long, you would need 225 square feet of synthetic grass.
Calculating Angled Artificial Grass Lawns
For landscapes with angles, artificial grass installers will measure the longest and widest angles of your lawn. If there is any excess synthetic turf, your installer will cut the artificial grass to shape.
As an example, if your longest angle is 20 feet long and your widest angle is 15 feet wide, your artificial grass installer will install approximately 300 square feet of synthetic grass.
Double-Checking Your Artificial Grass Installation
Even after meticulously measuring your lawn, a professional artificial grass installer will double check their work, ensuring that your new landscape will be a perfect fit. By doing so, they will guarantee that there won’t be any artificial turf wasted after your installation or that they didn’t measure too shortly.
