DIY guide: Installing artificial grass for residential use and smaller installations

To help you through your easy at-home turf installation, we have created this handy step-by-step guide using our popular Turftak artificial turf installation kit. 

Included in the kit:

  • x3 10oz/300ml Bondseal 1128 polyurethane adhesive cartridges 
  • x3 Cartridge nozzles
  • x1 30ft Roll of turf seaming tape
  • x1 Pack of disposable nitrile gloves

Tools required:

  • Scissors, screwdriver, utility knife etc (or seal puncture tool usually attached to caulk gun)
  • Caulking gun for standard 10-inch cartridges

 

Instructions

Step (1) After preparing and trimming lawn, check seams are free from dirt and contaminants  

Step (2) Insert measured length of seam tape underneath the desired seam

Step (3) Remove backing of the cartridge and puncture the seal using the seal puncture tool attached to the caulk gun or a sharp object such as scissors or a screwdriver

Step (4) Cut the tip of the cartridge nozzle at the second or third perforation depending on the desired size of the hole (the larger the hole the easier to release product)

Step (5) Insert the cartridge into the caulking gun and prime until a small amount of adhesive is released from the nozzle

Step (6) For application, run the glue in a zig-zag motion across the turftak heavy duty artificial turf tape

Step (7) Align one piece of turf onto the tape and making sure to check the grain is in the same direction, apply second piece of turf joining the seam together

Step (8) Try to avoid application of glue to unintended areas such as skin or clothing, if applied to unwanted areas, remove the adhesive quickly

Step (9) Apply pressure and allow the adhesive to cure for 12-24 hours
