the 4 pillars of the Lano Easy Lawn qualitiesCONSTRUCTIONFINISHINGNot only does the fibre choice play a crucialrole in the durability of the product, but alsoits construction. Three specifications areextremely important: weight per squaremetre, height of the pile and the number offibres per square metre.The quality of the backing is extremely important as it will impact on the long-term appearanceof your artificial grass.The backing used in Lano Landscaping products consists of two parts. The primary backing isa membrane in which fibres are tufted.A layer of latex, the so called second backing, is added to fix the fibres in place. The attentionto detail we place in our finishing ensures the fibres will not come loose, and that your lawnretains its lush green appearance longterm.YARNWARRANTYThe 4 key words for our collections are:THINThe yarns are thinner and thatgives a more green look and anexcellent handle.SOFTThe feel is softer thus closer tonatural grass.DULLWe use duller yarns for a naturallook.COLOUR All new qualities have at least 4colours.Weightgr/m²Pile heightmmFibers/m²3000 gr/m²38 mm826.5602000 gr/m²38 mm967.680EasyLawn1800 gr/m²35 mm147.000products, weare proud tooffer a1350 gr/m²35 mm514.080Primary BackingSecondary BackingEasy LawnLAVENDEREasy LawnROSEMARYEasy LawnTHYMEEasy LawnSAGEEasy LawnOREGANOEasy LawnLAURUSEasy LawnTARRAGONAll our quality products are made of abi-coloured PE monofilament yarn.Compared to PP fibres, PE fibres are not onlysofter and more pleasant to touch, they arealso more resistant thanks to their flexibility.Furthermore, PE is extremely UV-resistantand will not be affected by fluctuations intemperature.9*YEARWARRANTY1300 gr/m²37 mm672.0001160 gr/m²38mm604.800890 gr/m²30 mm504.000890 gr/m²35 mm302.400595 gr/m²15 mm604.8001650 gr/m²13 mm571.200The primary backing is a woven, UV-resistantpolypropylene membrane.This membrane is re-inforced with anadditional film that ensures dimensionalstability.The final finishing is a perforated, water- androt-proof layer of latex.Similar to that of sports turf products, thebacking of the Easy Lawn products has beendeveloped to guarantee the durability of thelawn.So confidentare we ofthe qualityof our9 yearguarantee.Easy LawnBOTANICEasy LawnCILANTROEasy LawnGREEN67

installations instructionsartificial turf for landscaping & household applicationsWe would recommend you call upon the services of a professional to carry out the installation ofyour artificial lawn. However, understanding that you may wish to undertake the project yourself,we hope that the guidelines below will help you along.There are various installation options available, so have provided the most commonly appliedmethods for your information.Before you startWhen determining the length and width you will require, please do allow some extra that willbe lost during cutting. It is recommended to make a draft design, and determine how the turfcan best be applied. If you require several rolls, we would like to point out that all rolls should beinstalled in the same direction, as the fibres of the lawn tend to settle a little towards one direction.When installing the rolls, it is recommended that you position yourself so you are looking againstthe natural fibre direction of the lawn.We advise against installation at temperatures below 10 Celsius and in damp weather conditions(rain, fog).12Preparation of the substrateRemove all grass, vegetation and stones from the area. Proper drainage of the soil is essential.Existing hard surfaceIf the turf is installed on an existing hard surface, it is recommended to repair or remove anyirregularities. Ensure that sufficient drainage is possible. A drainage mat could act as a suitablesubstrate solution in this environmentIn other cases, you may opt to install the substrate using compacted material, or, if you prefer aperfectly level and stable substrate, you could install a stabilised substrate of cement and sand.Cement and sandCompacted materialDepending on the type of substrate, sufficient soil must be excavate until a level and stable baseis achieved, the escavating depth will depend on the existing substrate.1 10 - 15 cm 5 - 15 cmIt is recommended to fit a (water/rot-proof) wooden frame around the complete installation. Thiswill not only guarantee a perfect edge for the lawn on the one hand, but also allow the frame tosecure the artificial turf. The frame is best placed immediately underneath the edge of adjacentzones (terraces, plants, .).Fill the excavated area with a moistcombination of cement and sand (ratio 1/7).Spread out this mixture , then level andcompact, ideally using a vibrating plate.Leave enough time for the substrate to dry.2Fill the excavated area with fine gravel (up to10 mm). Spread this mixture out, then leveland compact, ideally using a vibrating plate.If necessary, finish with a layer of moist clayor angular sand, and compact once againwith a vibrating plate until a perfectly smoothand level surface is obtained.2After finishing the preparation of the substrate, spread an anti-rooting membrane/geotextilefabric over the surface. An overlap of 10 cm between the different rolls is ideal. If appropriate,the membrane can be fixed to the wooden frame with stainless steel screws.3312If you prefer not to work with a wooden frame, curb stones to which the artificial turf can beglued can be used as an alternative.13

installation instructionsartificial turf for landscaping & household applicationsInstallation of artificial turfCarpetRoll out the carpet and, if you install several rolls, be sure to lay all in the same direction. Proceedcarefully during the installation and while rolling out the carpet to avoid any folds. Make sure thatthe artificial turf is completely level everywhere, and leave enough time for it to acclimatise. Startby roughly cutting the outer edges. To do this, fold the carpet over and carefully cut between thepile rows along the back using a sharp knife. Trimming can be carried out at a later stage.4SeamsAdjacent rolls are placed immediately next to each other or can be pushed close together.5Fold the sides of the carpet back and roll the adhesive tape between the two pieces of artificialturf.6 7Prepare the 2-component PU adhesive, carefully following the instructions of the supplier ! Donot prepare this adhesive too early, as it will cure after a short, specified time. Spread the adhesiveover a width of approximately 20 cm and over the full length of the seam band using a toothedspatula. Remember not to use too much adhesive so as to avoid it being squeezed throughthe seam.Fold the carpet back and press it firmly onto the adhesive, ensure that8no piles become stuck in the adhesive and that the two pieces of artificial turf are perfectlyjoined. In order to obtain a specially strong bond, the seam can be pressed down with (weighted)boards.For smaller installations you can use a waterproof mono-component PU9adhesive, or a self-adhesive tape that is suitable for these applications.FixationIf present, the artificial lawn should be screwed onto the wooden frame with stainless steelscrews. Alternatively, if the application does not use a wooden frame, the turf can be glued tocurb stones. If only a small area is installed, for example if only one roll is used, you may not wishto use a wooden frame and to fix the edges of the artificial turf directly onto the substrate usingstainless steel nails or pins.104567891011Finishing workTrim the edges of the carpet where necessary. Remove all trimmings and loose piles and brush thepile of the carpet into the desired position.11Please note that these guidelines are only provided for information. The successful installationdepends on many factors that cannot all be addressed or accounted for in these instructions.1415

maintenanceAn artificial turf lawn is easy to maintainIt is important to regularly remove leaves, twigs and other organic material, either with a leafblower / vacuum cleaner, a stiff brush or a rake. Larger objects such as branches must beremoved manually.If moss appears in areas where there is not enough sunlight, an anti-moss treatment could benecessary, preferably applied during the spring and autumn. Use a bio-degradable product forthis; never use acidic liquids or bleach as these chemicals could damage the fibres if applied in toohigh a concentration.There is no need to remove snow and ice from the surface; simply allow to melt and drain off.Animal droppings should be removed as soon as possible, after which the artificial turf should berinsed with water.Substances such as oil, acids, solvents or fuels should never come into contact with your artificiallawns.Do not throw cigarette butts on the turf and do not expose the turf to fire, fireworks, weldingactivities or barbecues, as this could cause the fibres to melt and clump together.L A N D S C A P I N G16
