The synthetic lawn is a particular mantle, or green carpet, made with a particular artificial fiber that imitates the grass of a freshly mowed lawn. In recent years, the demand for synthetic lawns has grown considerably, because you don't always have the time or skill to care for a natural grass garden lawn. The synthetic lawn, in fact, finds wide application in outdoor environments, both public and private, indoors, in sports fields, on roofs, on the terrace, by the pool, in open spaces in concrete and in any space where you want to create. a green air without grass. As for the interior spaces, there have been consumers who have even used synthetic grass to decorate the sofa in the living room. But without mentioning these extreme cases, the synthetic lawn still lends itself to various uses, proving to be very functional and aesthetically pleasing.
The synthetic lawn has undeniable advantages over the natural one. First of all, maintenance, which is easier and faster than real grass, and then the ease of installation and removal. The synthetic lawn also involves a significant reduction in costs related to the sowing and maintenance of the real lawn. Therefore, sowing, fertilization, cutting and the use of herbicides to combat pests and diseases should not be carried out. The precautions to be used to keep the synthetic lawn in good condition are really minimal compared to the effort and costs to be borne to care for and keep a real lawn healthy. Of course, the choice of synthetic lawn can also be dictated by a pure and simple matter of personal taste. There are, in fact, garden lovers who do not like natural grass, but who in any case do not want to give up the aesthetic effect of a relaxing and well-furnished green space. The synthetic lawn also allows you to have a green area in areas where it would be more difficult and complicated to grow real grass. Think, for example, of winter gardens, created indoors and on paved spaces where it would be impossible to plant a real lawn. The advantages of the synthetic lawn are not only functional and related to its maintenance, but also refer to its high resistance to external factors generally harmful to real lawns, such as sunlight, rain, frost and wind.
Synthetic lawns are made, as mentioned in the first paragraph, in a special fabric that imitates a real lawn that has just been mown. The fiber used to produce the synthetic lawn is called "Tufted" and looks similar to small tufts of grass. This fiber has a length of between five and ten centimeters. Many consumers prefer to buy much higher synthetic lawns, without realizing that these "carpets" distort the true function of the synthetic lawn, a lawn that must be decorative, fall-proof and must facilitate trampling. To perform these functions, the real lawn is suitably mowed and shortened and therefore why buy a synthetic lawn that is too high, when then it will have to be shortened anyway? Since synthetic grass is, in fact, artificial, it should not be cut, in order not to damage the fiber, and therefore it is advisable to buy synthetic lawns with very low grass. Synthetic lawns with low grass also perform a useful protective function in case they are used as playgrounds or in spaces where children can play. The synthetic lawns are also made of anti-UV, anti-rain materials (to avoid water accumulation), with non-toxic fibers and adequately certified by European organizations. During production, these rugs are, in fact, subjected to quality tests that certify their anti-fall and anti-trauma properties. The modern generation synthetic lawns are sold in rolls and in clods or rectangular squares.
The synthetic lawn is positioned on flat and well-leveled surfaces. If there are holes outside, it is advisable to fill them before laying the fabric, which can be placed on the ground either with or without glue. The synthetic lawn without glue is fixed using joint tapes and anchoring accessories. These attach to the outer edges of one quadrant and the other after cutting them to match each other and with the perimeter of the area that will host them. The sides of the sheets must match each other perfectly, making sure that there are no free spaces between one and the other. The laying of the synthetic lawn with glue is similar to that without glue, with the only difference that the lawn fixed with the glue will no longer be removable and in case of removal it will be necessary to completely scrape the ground, damaging it aesthetically.
The costs of artificial turf vary according to the surface to be covered and the quality of the product. Since this is a material that must always remain in contact with adults or children, it is advisable to opt for certified quality. The prices of the various strips of lawns are calculated per square meter and range from four to thirty-nine euros per square meter, excluding VAT.

How to mount a synthetic lawn and its maintenance
Synthetic lawns with artificial grass appear like normal lawns, except that they do not require complicated maintenance and are not subject to the pitfalls of bad weather. Setting up a synthetic lawn is not complicated. First of all, you need to get the right measures for the space to be furnished. In this way, you will be able to get exactly the right amount needed for the space available. Synthetic lawns are actually rolls that are counted by the footage.

The synthetic lawn has no particular needs, as it can also be placed in downhill areas and on practically any type of surface. The important thing is that there are no excessive differences in height or hollows, in which case they should be filled before using the synthetic lawn. The first step is to unroll the strips of lawn and place them where they are needed, possibly cutting them where the measurement turns out to be inaccurate. The sheets must all be cut to the same size and will then be placed next to each other, so as to fit together. To keep them attached it is obviously necessary to resort to the help of glue. It is advisable to spread the glue on the bottom using a fine-toothed spatula. Gluing is a very delicate phase, in which the glue will be applied either on the sides and along the perimeter or on the entire sheet, if you prefer a total gluing. After carrying out this step, it is possible to apply the sheets taking care to make them fit together perfectly and applying strong pressure so that the strips are well fixed to the ground.
The maintenance of a synthetic lawn is not very demanding and perfect for those who love nature but do not have a green thumb. Particularly resistant to wear, the fiber of which the synthetic lawn is composed does not suffer much damage even due to atmospheric changes. Maintenance mostly involves periodic cleaning of its surface. In the case of a simple dry lawn, just use a common vacuum cleaner to remove dirt and residues. Instead, in the case of a draining lawn, the use of a water jet is recommended to keep the surface clean.

The installation performed in a workmanlike manner, through machinery specific precision, allows a long life of the artificial lawn. Is very important precisely place the grass rolls and pre-finish the edges or the points where there are irregularities. The joints of the synthetic lawn, in fact, must match perfectly. Also, in most synthetic lawns, the grass stems are bent in one direction. So it is important to be careful to lay the strips so that all the threads have the same direction. Relying on a specialized company is the best solution to avoid making mistakes. The overall purchase and installation costs may vary depending on the material and processing technique used to produce the synthetic grass.
How to lay synthetic lawn on natural soil
When artificial lawns are to be laid on the ground:
- any weeds are removed,
- the layer of earth is compacted and a slope is created that favors the flow of water,
- any wells are raised,
- the soil substrate present is covered with an anti-root sheet in non-woven fabric,
- on the bottom, holes are created to allow rainwater to drain,
- an additional drainage substrate consisting of sand or gravel is inserted,
- an anti-shock layer is added in case there are children playing in the garden,
- lastly, the synthetic grass is laid. The fake grass blades are applied through special stitching to a support.
The blades of grass of a good quality turf are usually made with a non-toxic fiber, resistant to UV rays and rain, which reproduces small natural tufts. The length varies between 5 and 10 centimeters, just to reproduce an effect as likely as possible.
How to lay synthetic lawn on a pavement
