What is the best temperature to lay artificial grass?
Since artificial grass is made of synthetics, the temperature can have an effect. After all, synthetics may expand slightly due to heat and may shrink somewhat due to cold.
There’s no need for you to worry though. It’s only a matter of millimeters.
Besides, this hardly occurs with Next 2 Natural.
Next 2 Natural products all have a double backing (double carpet at the bottom). Usually artificial grass for consumers only has a single backing, which is cheaper. But it also means the backing is not as strong and is more sensitive to fluctuations in temperature.
What is the best temperature to install artificial grass then?
The best temperature to install our artificial grass is between 42 to 59 degrees Fahrenheit. The best course of action is to roll the strips in the morning in this temperature and let them ‘relax’ for a while. In the afternoon, when the grass has had some time to acclimate, you can cut the strips to size crosswise.
At this point, we advise you to connect the different strips already. When grass shrinks or expands, it will do so only lengthwise, so it won’t affect your connected strips.
But what if the temperature is higher or lower?
No problem. As stated before: Next 2 Natural products hardly shrink or expand thanks to the double backing.
We have heard people talking about how the grass in their lawn started to crease. This can happen when grass was cut too precise and at a relatively low temperature. When the temperature rises, the grass can expand and as there’s no room to move, it will start to crease.
Needless to say they didn’t buy from Next 2 Natural, and the grass wasn’t installed by a professional either. So if you’re looking for an artificial lawn that looks perfect every day of the year, choose Next 2 Natural and visit Graff’s Turf.
