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.

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.

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.

Well, it depends on the actual size of the piece of artificial grass you got: if your piece is small, similar to a size of area rug or floor mat, you can simply leave it free floating just as you will do with any indoor area rugs or mat, you don’t need anything else to secure it onto the floor. However, if your artificial turf piece is large and you would like to install it inside your house permanently, you can treat it as regular carpet: pin it down to the floor or glue it down will work just fine.

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.

I personally always like to use nails for artificial grass installations. The staples will work ok on the seaming part of the installation from time to time to certain installers, but overall, nails will do the job just fine in a much more quick way. I have found it is easy to use nails and much quicker than staples: staples can be more difficult to be driven through the artificial grass backing and into the sub base, and the flat U shaped head can catch the turf blades and drew them down in which situation you will need to spend time to pull out the fibers caught by the stapes head which can be very time consuming and frustrating. Therefore, my personal advice is to use nails whenever you can for all your artificial grass installations, please do not hesitated to contact us by phone, email or this online form if you have any further questions: https://www.globalsynturf.com/free-quote

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.

In my opinion, both sizes nails will work just fine. However, I do see in reality most people will go with 6” nails as the price differences between the 4” and 6” are marginal and theoretically the longer nails will provide better holdings. There are also two different types of nails you can choose from: regular steel  and galvanized. The main difference regular steel and galvanized nails is that steel nails will rust and galvanized nails won’t. Most people will ask the question: is rust of nails a good thing for artificial grass installations? The answer is probably not. I have found that when the steel nails getting rusted a bit, it holds the turf in place remarkably strong, and if installed with regular length grass, such rusting never even noticeable. For most installers, they might prefer to galvanized, not necessarily because it won’t rust, more important to them is that galvanized nails are sharper and easier to drive into the artificial grass and sub base which makes installation process more efficient and faster.
