Specialty Tools for Artificial Turf Installation

Seaming Cloth – Perfect for connecting two sheets of synthetic grass. Lay the fabric down, apply the seaming glue and place the pieces of turf together on top of the fabric. Allow for glue to dry.

Seaming Glue – This glue needs to be a thixotropic polyurethane-based adhesive – made specifically for synthetic turf.

Landscape Spikes – These are recommended to secure your synthetic lawn by placing a nail every foot or so around the perimeter and randomly in the center of the grass.

Turf Rake – You will want to use this so you can brush the fibers until they are standing up straight as possible

Hand Tamper – This will help you firmly pack down the infill.
