Title: METHOD FOR FORMING AN ARTIFICIAL GRASS LAYER AND ARTIFICIAL GRASS PRODUCT FOR USE THEREIN
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for forming an artificial grass layer on a substrate, comprising the steps of supplying a pack of flat and deformable artificial grass strips, in which the strips are arranged with their flat faces side-by-side and are connected to each other at mutually offset locations, placing the pack of artificial grass strips on or partially in the substrate, pulling apart the artificial grass strips, thus forming a grid, and at least partially filling at least some of the openings in the grid with a stabilizing material. The invention further relates to a method for forming such a pack of flat and deformable artificial grass strips. And finally, the invention relates to an artificial grass product, comprising a pack of flat and deformable artificial grass strips, each strip comprising a substantially straight lower edge and an upper edge having artificial grass blades protruding therefrom, wherein the strips are arranged with their flat faces in side-by-side relationship and their straight lower edges in substantially the same plane, and are connected to each other at mutually offset locations.
