Artificial Grass Installation Tips: Turf Gripper

One roll of artificial grass may weigh 225 pounds. If you believe it's easy to get the turf out of a truck, lay it in the right place and position pulling around your installation area, it's just wishful thinking. Most do-it-yourselfers rely on tools to get the job done. But for professional synthetic turf installation, tools are more than a means to an end. If you are a specialized contractor, you can't afford to be flirtatious about gear.
