Taking the proper steps to find the correct information beforehand is crucial to seaming turf properly. Seaming synthetic grass can be tough to get right, especially if you don’t know where to start. If it’s your first time seaming synthetic grass and you are unsure of the proper steps to take, don’t worry; we at Premium Grass Blades are there for you! Follow our step-by-step guide on how to seam your artificial grass, and you’ll be a pro in no time. Guidelines: When seaming, a common mistake people make is leaving too much or too little space between tufts. We recommend cutting three tufts off before creating a seam and leaving a 3/8 inch space for the seam. Too much or too little space will create a noticeable line. The goal is to make the seam line invisible. After this, the next step is to begin seaming!
Step 1: Place your second turf roll close to your desired position.
Step 2: Flip the edges and remove the last 3-5 tufts on each side. (Do not remove the blade closest to the tuft on the main piece; this will minimize backing.)
Step 3: Align the pieces so that the tufts land the same distance apart. (1/8 inch – 1/4 inch).
Step 4: Spike both pieces in place; check alignment before continuing.
Step 5: Fold the pieces back 8-10 inches and lay the seam tape centered on the seam.
Step 6: Spread seam glue on the tape. A very thin and consistent coat is ideal. (The glue will expand and can come through the turf if applied too heavily.) Do not overapply.
Step 7: From an end, bring the pieces together evenly and lay them down together. Keep the fibers upright and out of the seaming glue.
Step 8: Rub fingers down the seam and pick out any trapped blades.
Step 9: Spike both pieces down every few inches; don’t hammer them down too hard or too close to the edges.
Step 10: Place 12-inch wide wood strips down the seam and weigh them with infill bags for 45-60 minutes per seam.
