Roll your two pieces of artificial grass out flat, so that the two pieces are running adjacent to each other.
Fold back 30-40cm on each side along the length of the join and trim 20-30mm from each edge, cutting between tufts.
Whilst avoiding the blades of grass, trim 20-30mm from each edge cutting in-between tufts. A good rule of thumb is to always cut in by atleast 3 tufts.
Unroll join tape shiny-side down along the entire length of the join. It is important to not roll the artificial grass over yet & that you secure the tape down with nails or adhesive.
Fold one side of the turf onto the join tape then slowly fold over the other side of the join. A gap of 2-3mm between the sections generally gives the best results.
Apply the adhesive with a mastic gun & a specialist nozzle through the center of these two sections. If you do not have a specialist nozzle, you can use a standard nozzle. Using a standard nozzle, you’ll want to apply a bead of glue under the edge of the first section of grass – followed by a second bead to the front edge to accommodate the second piece of grass.
Once joined, laying weighted planks along the join is a good idea to ensure an invisible joint. Allow 2-3 hours to dry and then sand infill the product.
