Wooden tiles are durable, beautiful, and easy to install when you try them. This write-up explains how you can lay wooden decking tiles on grass.

Step One – Clear the Grass

The first step to installing wooden decking on grass is to clear grasses from the spot that you want to install. You can do that with a shovel. Make sure you level the spots after removing grasses from it. After that, you should apply gravel in the spots and make sure that it is 3-4 cm.

Step Two – Order Your Tile

This is something you should do after you have cleared the spots. You must measure the areas that you will install the wooden decking on so that you will know the total amount of tiles that you need for your outdoor project. It is best if you write down the number of square feet that the spot has in total.

 This is so that you will easily know how many wooden tiles you will need because most tiles are 1 square foot. When you make your order, you should get extra just in case you might have to cut the tiles to fit around objects in your garden. You should order 10% extra as a precaution.

Step Three – Make the Foundation for Your Wooden Tiles

You can not just install your wooden tiles on the gravel like that because it will not stay. You must build a substructure for the tiles so that the wooden tiles will rest on it. It is this substructure that will come in contact with the gravel, not the tile. To make the substructure, you have to look for wood posts. The posts should not be too long and should be squared. You can cut them to reduce their sizes.

 If the posts are too long, it will increase the height of your tiles. Note that your tiles are in your garden and that the height should not be too high from the grass of your garden. When your posts are ready, you should sink them into the ground and ensure that they are firm. After, you can connect the various posts with small wooden planks. It is on these planks that you will lay the wooden tiles.

Step Four – Start Installing Your Wooden Decking

When everything is ready, you can stay installing your wooden decking on grass. You should start from a corner and lay the first sets of tiles. How you lay your wooden tiles depends on you. You can lay them horizontally if you choose. Or, you can lay them vertically if that is what you want. Let’s assume that you lay the first sets of your wooden tiles horizontally. If you have done that, you should lay the next set of wooden tiles vertically. 

Anyhow, you do this is fine. What this implies is that you can divide the spot you want to lay the tiles into rows or columns. If you are installing your wooden tiles row by row, you can arrange the first set of tiles horizontally and the next set near it vertically on a row. Note that a set should contain four wooden tiles arranged side by side. The same goes for if you are installing your wooden tiles by column.

 The first set can be horizontal, while the last set can be vertical. You should repeat the horizontal-vertical process until you have finished a row or column. When you are done with a row or column, you can proceed to the next row or column. Do that until you have covered the entire surface of your garden or the area you want to install the wooden tiles.
