Select the best hardware for your artificial grass installation. Use specialty nails and staples along the perimeter, enabling you to pull seam edges closer together, reducing visibility in the seams and creating a smoother turf landscape.

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.

Sometimes installers will use nails in the putting green turf to stabilize the installation. However, the. Type of nails used has to be without heads (or pins) and once installed, people won’t notice them at all. Regular 40D or 60D will probably not work as the mail heads will be exposed. I hope your installer has used the correct nails that not visible on your green, of course it will always be ideal to only have infills to hold the turf in place without using any nails.

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.

The 40D and 60D nails used for artificial grass installations are similar, the only difference is that 40D nails are 1” shorter than 60D nails and a tiny bit thinner. Both nails will get the job done. For any other questions, please call us at 877 796 8873 or email us at [email protected], thank you.

There are two type of nails used for artificial grass installations: regular steel nail (installation nails) or galvanized nails, and both nails are recommended by us even though there are some pros and cons for each. I had a previous posting to explain the differences of nails and nail sizes, please check it out at: https://www.globalsynturf.com/should-i-use-4-inch-or-6-inch-nails-for-installation.

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.

For edging finishes of artificial grass installations, I personally always recommend nails over staples. Nails are easier to use and will hold the turf edges very well. For beginners or people who don’t have much of turf installation experiences, nails will be much better option. Please feel free to contact us via phone: 877 796 8873 or email: [email protected] if you have any further questions, thank you.

All you need is a hammer to tap the staples in and through the turf. You don’t want to pound the staples too hard as you might bend the “U” end, the best way is to try to tap it and gradually given more power to it. If you need further help on other installation concerns, please feel free to call (877 796 8873) or email ([email protected]) us, thank you.

You can use either nail for your artificial grass installations, they both will work out well to give you satisfactory results: the 40 D nails is a bit thinner and shorter and cost less, some installers like it as it can be a bit easier to drive through the turf at the installation; 60 D nails are bit more expensive but longer which theoretically provide better hold. Please feel free to contact us by phone (877 796 8873) or email ([email protected]) if you have any other 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.

When it comes to the artificial grass installation, regardless the sizes, you will need to use nails along the perimeters of the turf, and the nailing schedule should be about 4”-6” which means put the nails every 4”-6” apart.

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.

Staples are optional or at installers’ choice when it comes to artificial grass installations. The most commonly used of staples for turf installations is the seaming part: staples’ two legs are on each piece of the turf to hold both pieces together well. However, such seaming methods can also be accomplished by using nails on each piece of the turf as well. When staples are being used, the flat head will clamp certain fibers down, so you won’t want to drive it into the base too much as plying the fibers is required before you secure the staples permanently, this could be one of the reasons for certain installers for not using staples as extra work of ensuring fibers not being clamped down by the staple heads.

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.

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.
