Seaming artificial grass with glue and tape is the most labor-intensive seaming method. Make your installation resistant to wrinkling and sagging by selecting from a state of the art line of synthetic turf glue and tape supplies. As the leading artificial grass manufacturer in the United States, we strongly recommend gluing your seams in all commercial, putting greens and sports applications, or if the soil consists of a soft dirt-like loam, sand or silt.

Seaming of artificial grass requires skills and experiences, and is considered to be one of the key part of the installation process. By that said, we will recommend you to use professionals to do the work for you if you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself. To seam the turf together side by side which is most common way of seaming, you need to have a space of the same distance of the turf’s gauge. The gauge of artificial turf is the distance between two stitch rows, most commonly are 3/8”, 1/2” or 5/8”, and 3/16” for putting greens, so if you are seaming the turf with 3/8” gauge, you want to make sure the two pieces of turf to be spaced with 3/8”: be careful here that you don’t have to leave a “gap”, you need to distance the stitch line on piece one to the stitch line on piece two at 3/8”. If you are seaming the two pieces end to end, you won’t need to leave any spaces but to make sure to line up the stitch lines.

Not sure exactly what do you mean by seaming the edges. There are several edging finish options when it comes to artificial grass installations:
1. You can have the edge of the turf directly connected onto your concrete or pavers;
2. You can use either bender board or wonderedge to build a boarder to finish off the edges of your turf. Here are the links to the boarding materials: https://www.globalsynturf.com/artificial-grass-edging.

Seaming artificial grass is one of the tasks that require good skills and experiences. Good installers will be able to seam the turf with minimal or none visual appearance of the seams, however, it can be a challenge for anyone who has no or minimum experiences. Just like carpet, good installations shows minimal or no seams. Therefore it is very important for you to have experienced installers to perform such critical task for you to best possibly “hide” the seams. Unfortunately, this is not a subject can be accomplished by just listing the step by step instructions.

Yes, as the manufacturer of the artificial grass, we strongly recommend to use glue on all turf seams at the installation. We offer such turf glues from our product lineups with different sizes: 29 oz tube, 1 gallon and 5 gallon buckets. Depends on the size of your application, you can choose different sizes. For permanent artificial grass installation on a hard and smooth surface such as concrete, turf glues are also required along with 1/4” notched trout to apply the glue.

The answer is yes! But you need to make sure of the following;
1. The two pieces of turf you are piecing together are from the same dyelot.
2. When you are putting the two pieces together, you need to make sure the fibers on both pieces are facing the same directions.

You will probably only need the turf glues when seaming two pieces of artificial grass together for most common installations. Our turf glue comes in with 3 different packages: 28 oz tube, 1 gallon and 5 gallon buckets. For seaming purpose, a tube of turf glue will be able to cover a seam up to 12’ long, and one gallon glue can cover up to 40’ long of seams.
If you are installing the artificial grass on a solid surface such as concrete permanently, you will need the turf glue as well. A gallon of glue will cover an area of 40-50 square feet.
In either case, at the installation, you will put the glue onto the seaming tape or the solid surface instead of onto the turf.

Artificial grass seaming tape is a very durable fabric and always need to work with glues. Most installers will use nails to secure the seaming tape onto the sub base then apply glues on the seaming tape surface.

It depends on the size of your area and application. If you are installing the artificial grass in a room, you can do the installation the same way as carpet: no need to use glue or nails, simply floating the turf and tuck the edges, or use pin nails as needed (not the long nails people used for outdoor installations), and you can always put paddings underneath the turf for extra cushioning. If you are installing the artificial grass as an indoor sport field or similar with at a large scale, I will recommend you to use turf glue for the best results. We offer free consultations on artificial grass products and installations, please call or email us at [email protected] for any further questions.

If you are installing the artificial grass permanently on your patio, the best way to go is gluing it down. The drawback is that glues will leave residues and marks on your patio concrete when you remove the turf. If you are not looking for a permanent installation, I will recommend you to use heavy duty double sided carpet tape: the tape might work out ok if you have a small area, but again, I am not sure about how long these tapes will last.

It will depend on the type of wall you have. If you are installing the artificial grass on a regular interior wall with sheetrock, you can find the studs and simply nailing the turf on it. If you are installing the turf on a concrete wall or outside wall with stucco or bricks, you can either use anchors and nail or use glue to be easy. If you can email us with your wall picture along with the size of the artificial grass you want at [email protected], we will be able to help you better.

You definitely can use the vacuum cleaner on the artificial grass, especially in your situation. Please just make sure not to use the vacuum designed for low pile carpet or bare floor, you should use either the “Shop Vac” type or carpet vacuum can handle high piles. Or you can use a portable blower to clean up your artificial grass as well.

Well, you never use nails on the surface of artificial putting greens! I only recommend you to use sand infills on the artificial putting greens to provide extra weight holding the turf down and help with increasing of ball speed, but not to use any nails. You do need nails to secure the artificial putting green’s edges onto the anchor boards at the installation.

Seaming tape is for piecing two pieces of artificial grass together. Normally the seaming tape is made of very durable poly materials and can last for a long time if not longer than artificial grass. It normally comes in with the width of 12”, from time to time, people can special order the 6” width versions as well. In order to join two pieces of artificial turf together. You first will need to lay the seaming tape down and making sure it is right centered at the turf joint, then you will apply the turf glue on to the tape, finally to press the two pieces of turf onto the tape with glues on it.

The polyurethane glue we use for our artificial grass products are very strong! We call the glue layer of artificial grass “secondary backing” which serves the purpose of not only holding the grass fibers together, but also provide extra stability. The polyurethane glue won’t react to moistures, so it will last you a long time even it directly touching the ground. To measure the strength of the polyurethane glue on artificial grass, the industry has a specific term for it: Tuft Bind. The higher the tuft bind number, the better holds it provides. You can find the tuft bind testing data on all our artificial grass products on our website at this link, once on this page, click on the product name and you will see a window with all categories showing up and you can click on the tuft bind testing: https://www.globalsynturf.com/artificial-grass-specifications-specs.
Our average tuft bind is about 10-12 lbs which is really way above the industry standard (The industry standard is at about 7-8 lbs).
To answer your second part of the questions, the polyurethane glue does get a bit stiffer during the cold weather and softer during hot weather, but once installed, the glue will be underneath facing the ground, you won’t really see any of such physical changes. More importantly, temperatures changes won’t affect the functions of the glue.

This is a really good question. Like carpets which has been around for a long time, of which installation methods haven’t been changed much at all. And I am not sure new methods of artificial grass will have revolutionary changes any time soon. We need to know why the current installation methods make sense for artificial grass:
1. Drainage of water or dog urines is a primary concern for artificial turf installs, which will require a good sub base to be built.
2. A perfectly smooth surface is critical for artificial grass to be laid on to ensure proper looking of your artificial grass, this is a part of sub base building as well.
3. Glues and nails are needed for secure the artificial grass in place and seams.
4. Infills are also required to minimize the expansion and contractions of your artificial grass due to the temperature changes.
Unless we can find ways to resolve reasonings above, I am afraid that the current installation ways will be here to stay for a while. However, being an pioneer of the industry, we have been introducing some easier installation alternatives such as using drain boards but nothing major or revolutionary so far.
We have distributors and dealers nationwide, if you have any other specific questions and concerns, please feel free to reach us via phone, email or this online form: https://www.globalsynturf.com/free-quote
