Before installing SYNLawn Calabasas you will need the proper tools for the job. Please see the list of tools above.

Prepare the base

Most outdoor applications require preparation of an aggregate base to allow proper water drainage. Simply clear the surface where your SYNLawn Calabasas will be placed, removing any unwanted grass and roots.

Once clear, add a two to four-inch layer of crushed aggregate until achieving the desired shape and contour. Work the aggregate with a rake and hand tamp until the surface is compact and smooth.

Trim to size

With the base ready, position your SYNLawn Calabasas and trim to shape. If using more than one roll of SYNLawn Calabasas, make sure the “grain” of the grass fibers point in the same direction.

Glue together seams

To seam SYNLawn Calabasas together, align two pieces of SYNLawn Calabasas edge-to-edge. Fold back the edges to lay SYNLawn Calabasas seaming cloth the length of the seam.

Secure in place

Secure the seaming cloth in place. Apply seaming adhesive to the cloth, spreading to a consistent thickness. After a few minutes, slowly ease the two edges back together, checking the fit as you go.

To secure your SYNLawn Calabasas, use five to six-inch galvanized nails or landscape anchor pins around the perimeter and where necessary to keep your SYNLawn Calabasas flat.

Groom your grass

Finally. Use a landscape rake or broom to brush the fibers up and rinse with a garden hose. Periodic brushing and rinsing will keep your SYNLawn Calabasas looking fresh, natural and beautiful for years to come.
