The time has finally come. Your installation date is scheduled, and you’re all set to go. You’re finally getting your artificial turf installed in your yard. It’s such an exciting feeling because you’ve been waiting and saving up for what seems like forever. The installers are coming tomorrow and then you realize, “wait… am I supposed to prep in any way for them?” The panic. What do you move? Do you have to move anything at all? Are you supposed to be there when they arrive? Do you need to provide anything for them when they arrive? Well, we’re here to help. We’ll help make this process as stress-free as possible. How to prepare for an installation? We can answer that for you!
Preparing for an installation is honestly so stress-free for a homeowner. You basically just have to make sure everything is clean and accessible. Especially if you’re installing artificial turf in the backyard, you’ll want to make sure it’s easy for the installers to get to the yard. If you have any valuable things in the way, you’ll want to move those to a different place for the installation. If the access to the backyard is crowded and the pathway is small, you’ll want to move things around to make more room for the installers to get by with the turf and their equipment. You’ll also want to make sure your cars are out of the driveway and garage. The more accessible the yard is for the installers, the more efficient the installation will be.
If you have dogs, you’ll want to make sure their personal business is all cleaned up before the installers get there. Having to work around a dog’s mess will only slow the installation process down. Let’s be real, that’s just plain gross too. It’s not the installers’ job to pick up after your dog.
If you get really bad weeds, you’ll want to notify your salesman or woman before the installation process begins so that he or she can send someone out to spray for the weeds. If you’re adding curbing or concrete in any way, you’ll want to get that done before the installers come to install the artificial turf. Hardscaping should always be done before any landscaping to ensure nothing gets ruined and the measurements are accurate.
It’s always a good idea to be there when the installers first show up to go over everything with them so that there are no misunderstandings. You should definitely be home when they finish the installation so that the head installer can do a walk-through with you. This way the both of you can address any issues or problems that might have occurred. If there are any issues with the installation, they can be adjusted or fixed right away.
