If a join in the turf is required, butt both of the surfaces together ensuring the pile is running in the same direction. Fold back 30-40cm on each side along the length of the join and trim 20-30mm from each edge, cutting between tufts.
Unroll join tape shiny-side down along the entire length of the join. Apply the adhesive along each edge of the backing in 2 lines. 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.
Once joined, laying weighted planks along the join is a good idea to ensure an invisible joint. Allow 2-3 hours to dry.
Once the base is compacted, apply weed membrane to the area. This will prevent weed growth whilst allowing water drainage. Trim off any waste membrane from the edges. If any joining is needed, overlap the edges then attach them with gaffer tape.
