Quick Tip: By Ken from Metro Synthetic

Installing your own artificial grass perth can help you save the money you would otherwise spent on a professional installer. All you have to do is follow these simple instructions and you will have your synthetic lawn in no time and see this

Step #1: Excavate the Area You Want to Place Your Lawn In
Before you start anything, make sure that you have marked the area you want to place your new synthetic lawn in. If you already have a lawn here or any other kind of soil, make sure to remove it to a depth of about 70mm. Once you do that, be ready to fill the excavated area with 60mm of blue metal dust. This is for the pedestrian area. If you want a car traffic area, on the other hand, you will need to remove the soil to a depth of 100mm and fill it afterward to 80mm depth of road base and another 10mm of blue metal dust. If there is reticulation (pipe network) present, you can simply cap the pop-up sprinklers.
Step #2: Install the Base
Once you have the area excavated to a proper depth, fill it with blue metal dust. A bit of warning beforehand. Blue metal dust is liable to compact down to 50mm, so you should compensate for that. Now screed the area carefully and compact it with the help of a vibrating plate compactor. Dampen the area with water to low areas you will need to fill again and compact once more.
Step #3: Install the Artificial Grass Perth
In the case of synthetic lawn, the fibers will all be aligned in a single position. Make sure that the grain is running in the same direction when you lay the full parts of lawn. Cut it to the size you wish by using a simple knife. You should also make sure that the seams on the artificial lawn are cut close to the “grain” or the “rib”. This will allow the two pieces to be better placed. Lay the lawn down and cut it leaving 50mm or so around the edges. Make sure that there is about 5mm space between the pieces. Next, fold each lawn piece about 400-500mm and lay the joining tape with the silver side facing the ground down the two pieces center. Use the lawn pins and secure the tape at each end. Peel the protection tape and place the two pieces back together. Finally, trim the edges, pin the outside edges 30mm in and 300mm apart and pin the joins to get that extra strength.
Step #4: Filling it With Sand
Use a garden broom to brush the lawn. Be sure to brush it against the grain. It’s also best if you use a stiffer broom. Spread the dried sand evenly across the lawn by using your hands or a shovel. There should be about 5-10mm depth, depending on the pile height of your lawn. Even the sand by brushing again and that’s it, you just installed your own artificial grass perth! Congrats!

Little Things Go Unnoticed Until its Too Late…

One of the most common reasons customers decide to call a roof restoration company is when its already too late. Their roof is already damaged and the rain is coming straight into the house.

I recently had a chat with the guys from who specialise in bathroom renovations and kitchen renovations in perth. We came to the conclusion that its very common to see service providers in our same industry not providing enough information to our customers that they eventually end up having to call someone like us to complete the job. This is mainly because there are some little pieces of information that are incredibly important that might not matter at this point in time, but if it was noticed and fixed then future problems would not have came upon.

Something like, if a tiny crack in a roof tile or a tiny crack on a bathroom wall was noticed earlier on, you could have avoided a hole in the ceiling or a wet patch through the other tiles.

So next time you call a company to service your home, make sure to ask them to provide a thorough inspection and tell you if there are any thing that requires attention.
