Synthetic Grass Tip: How to Avoid Seam Lines

The most crucial step in installing synthetic grass is the seam work! The perfect seams may make the difference between a lawn that looks natural and one that looks like a green plastic mess. Here are five things to follow for consistently excellent seams.

1. Allow Your Turf To Relax

Artificial grass expands in the sun. Before you start placing the grass to fit your yard, we advise having it set in the sun for 30 to 60 minutes to expand.

If you don’t give your grass enough time to grow, installing it may be difficult and annoying.

2. Double-check That Rolls Face The Same Direction

Make sure all of your rolls are positioned with the blades and stitch patterns facing the same direction before placing your grass and sealing the seams! This will give the illusion of being more natural.

A lawn that has been laid with the blades facing in opposite directions would appear fake.

3. Purchase More Than Enough Synthetic Grass

You’ll need some extra material to deal with while edging. For final touches, leave a quarter to half an inch of fake turf over your borders.

4. Position The Seam Tape And Glue The Turf

To connect your seam tape to the foundation, lay it under the seam’s midline and add nails every few inches. Then, using your glue, create an “S” pattern over the seam tape. Make sure the adhesive is applied evenly on both sides of the red line by spreading it out. The turf should then be placed.

5. Allow The Glue To Dry

Give your glue fifteen minutes to dry. To improve contact with the seam tape, put infill bags uniformly along the seam.
