Select one of our Awesome Artificial Grasses!

The last think you'll want is weeds coming though the turf.  We strongly encourage you to use our heavy duty commercial grade weed barrier.  There's nothing thicker than this one.

Depending on your application, we'll have you covered with the following types of infill.

Silica Sand, Zeolite or Crumb Rubber.  To learn more about infill types please click here.

 

Seaming of artificial grass and putting greens is typically done in one of three ways:

  1. Seam Tape and Glue:This method is the most robust but also the most expensive and the most labor intensive of the seaming methods. Lazy Lawn uses a 12" seam tape, with premium glue.Typically the two rolls are dry-seamed for fit. Then the rolls are pulled back, the glue is applied to the tape and allowed to sit until it gets tacky (usually 5 to 10 minutes depending on the amount of moisture in the air – this process can be sped up by misting the glue with a spray bottle). Once the glue is tacky, the grass is set back in place on top of the tape. When seaming with tape and glue the installer will typically also use sod staples or nails to hold the seam in place while the glue is curing.  If the sub-base is really rocky nails will be the preferred option (vs. staples) as the staples are far more likely to bend.
  2. Sod Staples & Nails: This is the least expensive, easiest and cleanest seaming method . The installer would use nails every 3” on alternate sides of the seam or sod staples every 6”, increasing the amount of staples if greater foot traffic is expected in the area.
  3. Tar Tape: This method is common in hot climates and for installers that prefer tape and glue but like the ease of using nails and staples. This method is also commonly used for temporary installations (such as at trade shows) and for installations over non-permeable surfaces such as concrete and asphalt. Where feasible this is also used in conjunction with nails and staples. This method has grown in popularly as pricing of glues has increased dramatically

Nails are used to secure the perimeter of your artificial grass installation. We generally use 6” galvanized landscaping nails every 6”-12” around. Where artificial grass meets a walkway, or high traffic area, we’ll increase to 3”-6” a part. About of nails require would depend on your parameter, here’s requirements below.

Turf Staples or Sod Staples are used to firmly secure seams or joints, and are always added when binding the turf together after the glue is poured. We typically use staples 8”-12” along the seam, piercing both pieces of turf. Turf staples ensure that the artificial grass doesn’t move prior to the glue fully drying,
