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.

If your roof doesn’t have proper slope for drainage, we will recommend to use drainage board before installing turf. If drainage is not a concern, you can glue the turf on the TPO roof, but not to the entire area, only to “spot glue” as long as holding the turf in place. For any further questions, please feel free to call us at 877 796 8873 or email us at [email protected], thank you.

Yes, it is important to minimize seams when installing artificial grass, it is the same concept as carpet installations. However, given the fact of turf fibers are “directional” and with “memories”, people also need to consider where the tips of fiber facing toward. There is no absolute rules on which direction the turf fibers to be installed even though most experienced installers will try their best to have the turf tips facing the direction from which people looking at the turf the most. For an example, when turf is installed at front yard, the tips of fiber facing street will be ideal, when installing in the backyard, tips of fiber facing the house would be the choice. Again, such ideal installations might have to be compromised with minimum seams or other installation limits in reality, it is quite often to lay turf on wide yards to minimize the seams so the tips of fiber facing sideways.

In most cases, seaming two pieces of artificial grass together or the edges is done during the installation. People normally do rough cuts before the installation and do the final cutting and seaming as installation progresses. However, simply joint two pieces together, you can do it before the installation.

If your artificial turf installation is to replace real grass lawn, you won’t be able to use the glues on a sub base besides the seam. For installations over hard surfaces, the glue will be the only option in most cases, therefore, it is hard to compare the glue with nail from the cost standpoint when it comes to artificial grass installations as these two items are not substitutable of each other.

It depends on how long the seams of your turf installation will be. To average usage, a 29 oz turf glue tube will cover a seam length of 9’-12’, and one gallon of turf glue will cover a seam length of 40’-50’. So once you know about how long your seam(s) you will be able to determine how much glue you will need.

Most of the time, glues are used for the seaming purpose, and the typically the seaming tape is either 6” or 12” wide. One gallon of glue can do 40’-45’ length of seam or to cover an area of 40-45 sf.. In the case of gluing artificial grass onto a solid surface such as concrete or hardwood, you can use the reference of one gallon of glue to cover 40-45 sf of turf area. However, you won’t need the entire area to be glued even installing turf onto a solid surface, you will need to glue the edges and a few rolls of 12” wide glues in the fields, so a 5 gallon glue will be enough for a 15x23 turf installation on a solid surface. Please feel free to contact us by phone: 877 796 8873 or email: [email protected] if you have any further question.

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. Please feel free to cal us at 877 796 8873 or email us at [email protected] if you have any further questions, thank you.

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.
