When fitting the turf for the area, over-cut the turf by one inch along the edges for a proper fit. The excess turf will be necessary for the tucking process. When in doubt, cut the turf fatter as it can always be trimmed down later. When seaming turf edges together, use a seaming tool to avoid any Mohawk affects. Once the turf is cut with the seaming tool, line up the turf accordingly. Cut the turf in an S-shape to avoid the turf possibly pushing against each other’s angles, which can create discoloration illusion in the seamed area.
Install nails every six inches along the edge and drive them down three quarters of the way. When finished, separate the grass to avoid pulling the blades down with the nail. The nail will be hidden with the grass blade at the base of the mat.
Don’t drive the nails down too deeply as it will pull the turf down and create a dimpled appearance on the surface. Be sure to secure seams with six inch U-nails every six inches.
Make sure the U-nail is driven to the same level of the mat and hidden with the grass blades.
