Like most projects for outdoor spaces, the time it takes depends on a number of factors, such as the size of the area, the complexity of the installation, and the weather conditions. However, as a general rule, most artificial installations can be completed within a few days to a week.
Here are some of the factors that can affect the time it takes to install your artificial turf:
1. Site preparation: Before installing the turf, the site needs to be properly prepared. This may involve removing existing grass and debris, grading the area, and installing a base layer of crushed stone or gravel. The time it takes to complete these steps will depend on the size and complexity of the area. It’s important to consider our best access to your outdoor space, as we will need to have room for our machinery to enter and exit for an efficient installation.
2. Turf installation: Once the site is prepared, the turf can be installed. This involves rolling out the turf and cutting it to fit the shape of your desired area. Depending on the size and shape of the area, this step can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day or more.
3, Infill: Infill is a material that’s added to the surface of the turf to help support the fibers and provide cushioning. The time it takes to add infill will depend on the size of the area and the type of infill used.
4. Seaming and edging: Once your turf is installed, the seams between the individual pieces of turf need to be carefully joined and the edges need to be trimmed and secured. This step can take several hours or more, depending on the size and complexity of the area to create a near-seamless look for your design.
5. Cleanup: Finally, once the installation is complete, the site needs to be thoroughly cleaned up, including removing any excess turf, infill, or debris. This step can take several hours.
Working with a professional installer (ahem, Tuffy’s) can help ensure that your installation is done efficiently and effectively, minimizing the time required and ensuring a high-quality result. Let’s get your project scheduled today!
