While seam separation is a common problem for artificial grass, it diverts attention from the field’s aesthetic value.
If a seam breakage isn’t fixed quickly, it could lead to more extensive damage.
When exposed to UV light, high heat, or the thawing of winter snow, the seam break edge dries, shrinks, and the backing material begins to discolour.
What is seams?
Lines in artificial turf are typically caused by seams.
When two pieces of synthetic turf are joined together, the resulting connection is called a seam.
At first look it may seem simple like just put two pieces together and smack them and you will have a whole new thing.
But the reality is totally different.
How to fix seams in artificial grass?
1. Trim the rolls of artificial turf
2. Take Care When Cutting
3. Match the direction of the pile
4. Utilize the Correct Adhesive
5. Grass-brushing and infill installation
Can I just buy one huge piece of grass to cover the entire area?
The answer is, it depends. How much space do you have for installations?
Does it have many curves and corners to fill, or is it a rectangle?
Because artificial grass comes in large rolls, some cutting and seaming will almost probably be required unless your yard is exactly the form and size of a roll of turf.
Does artificial grass show seams?
Too much space between fiber rows will make the seam obvious and the filler material pushing through the synthetic fibers even more so.
If the distance between the seam’s two halves is too great, the seam will be seen.
I think that’s it! Need seams out of your yard? You should take a little extra care when installing, and they won’t be there.
Of course, to reduce the chance of flaws like visible seams, we always advise having your artificial grass professionally placed.
