Is it difficult to cover patio with synthetic turf? I understand I will need the glue of some special kind. What else?

You might depending on the scale of your project: if your artificial turf coverage area is small which doesn't require any tricky layout design and no seams, you should be able to do it yourself, and all you need is the turf and turf glues: you will need to start from one end and gradually working toward the other end when it comes to applying glues, do NOT try to put the glue down for the entire area then laying down the turf.
If your turf area is big and require complicated design and seams, I will suggest you to have installation professionals to do the job for you.
I didn't use any glue, simply lay the piece loose on my patio floor. The fake grass is pretty heavy, not going anywhere.
Mason, I have a piece of turf from Home Depot. It's thin. Every time there is a wind, this thing flies all-around my patio. If not for a fence, I would be hunting for it in my neighbor's yard. I'm not sure if the GST turf is heavy enough to withstand our East Coast's breezes. We have hurricanes from time to time. What if it blows to someone's roof or a car or a window?
Clint, the area is approx. 16' x 40' and the smaller patio is 16' x 16'. Do you sell turf in rolls? How big are they? How many would I need?
The installer has to take out some dirt, and put some base materials before laying the turf for my project.
I saw people to use nails along the edges instead of gluing down.
I did a little piece on my beat-up wood deck, easy.
As a turf manufacturer, we always recommend installations to be done by professionals.
I think it is not a good idea to do a large area on any type of surfaces, the installation might look easy.
Putting the glues will definitely need pros to do, once it get mess up, there won't be coming back, the turf can be ruined I assume.
I prefer to ask the expert's help too so the outcome will be great.
