This table provides a step-by-step guide and tips for attaching artificial grass to a concrete patio. The process involves cleaning the surface, measuring and cutting the grass, securing it in place with adhesive, brushing and infilling the grass, and trimming any excess around the edges.

Glue Down To Concrete

Attach Artificial Grass to Concrete

If your artificial grass is going to be attached directly to concrete, you will need to use glue specifically designed for outdoor use and the type of artificial grass that you are using. The glue should not be able to stain the concrete or it will create an unsightly spot on your lawn.

Infilling your artificial grass with the right materials can help keep it clean and prevent wear and tear. Our guide on the easy ways to add infill to artificial grass will show you the various materials you can use and how to properly apply it to your lawn.

Use Plastic Brackets

You can use brackets to attach artificial grass to your deck, patio or wall. Brackets are a great way to add grass in otherwise impossible places and are easy to install.

There is a range of sizes available so you can choose one that fits your area perfectly. They’re also easy to remove so you can change your grass whenever you want!

Using plastic brackets is an easy and effective way to add grass to otherwise impossible places such as walls, and this guide can help you get started.

Use Nails And Staples

The best way to secure your artificial grass is by using nails and staples. Nails have a larger surface area and are more resistant to pulling out than staples, but they’re harder to work with because you need a hammer and a nail gun (or another type of power tool). 

Staples are easier for smaller jobs but aren’t as strong as nails. Both can be used on almost any type of artificial grass surface.

If you don’t have access to a hammer or staple gun, don’t worry! You can still attach your new lawn without them! 

If you only want to use one method in order not to waste time getting different tools out from under the sink or wherever else they might be hiding, choose to staple over nailing for attaching small patches onto existing lawns or places where there’s not much room between rows the ground will just get covered up anyway when it rains.”

Attaching artificial grass to concrete can be done with the right tools and techniques. Our guide on the best way to attach artificial grass to concrete will give you step-by-step instructions and tips to make the process easy and effective.

Attach With Adhesive Tape

If you have a small area of artificial grass, adhesive tape can be a good choice. It is not recommended for large areas or high-traffic areas, however, since it will not hold up to much movement or wear. This type of tape is also not recommended for high moisture areas or high humidity areas.

Attach To Plywood Subfloor

In this step, you’ll need to attach your artificial grass floor to plywood. This is a very common practice when installing synthetic turf for homeowners who do not have an existing subfloor in their backyard.

If possible, it’s best to use pressure-treated plywood because it will last longer and resist rotting better than untreated plywood.

To install the plywood:

Cut the sheet of plywood down to size with a saw (or ask us and we’ll cut it), making sure that they fit snugly against any walls or other structures that may get in the way of your synthetic lawn installation.

Place them over top of your concrete slab/deck/ground where you want them placed and secure them on either side using nails or screws (or glue).

If you have a deck, you may be wondering how to attach artificial grass to it. Our guide on pro tips for attaching artificial grass to decking covers the tools and materials you’ll need, along with a clear process to ensure you get it right the first time.

Lay Artificial Grass Over Pavers

First, you’ll want to lay the artificial grass over your pavers (or another surface). You can use a rubber mallet or hammer to tap down any bunches in the artificial grass, ensuring it is lying flat and level with the rest of your yard.

Next, make sure that all of your pavers are level on top of one another this will ensure that your finished project looks neat and tidy! If any of them need adjusting, simply use a level and putty pad to get them back into place before continuing with step 2 below.

Cut Grass To Fit Around Shapes & Edges

You will need a utility knife or scissors to cut your artificial grass into shape. For hard surfaces, such as concrete or tarmac, use a utility knife. 

For softer surfaces such as soil or sand, use scissors. It is best to avoid cutting on sharp corners so that you don’t hear the blades of your blades and make them blunt.

Before you install artificial grass, it’s important to properly prepare the ground underneath it. Our guide on the easy tips for attaching artificial grass to the ground will teach you everything you need to know about ground preparation, including the tools you’ll need and step-by-step instructions.

Use Turf Tacks Or Turf Staples

You can use either turf tacks or turf staples to attach your grass to concrete or wood. Turf tacks are small nails, while turf staples have a wider head and work better when attaching artificial grass to wood.

Create A Custom Turf Border For Your Garden

To create a custom turf border for your garden, follow these steps:

For a seamless look, install the artificial grass rolls next to each other and butt them up against each other. This way, when you cut the seam between the two rolls by hand or with scissors, you’re cutting through one roll of artificial grass instead of two separate pieces.

If you want to create a pattern on your lawn or patio, use scissors to cut through the first piece of artificial grass so that it will create an interesting line in your final installation. Then lay out all of your pieces of artificial grass in their correct positions before cutting any more seams between them.

Create A Seam For Multiple Rolls Of Grass

If you’re thinking of laying artificial grass in strips, you’ll need to create a seam. This means that each piece must be joined together with a strip of tape. Seam Tape is easy and inexpensive to buy.

How To Apply Seam Tape

You can apply the seam tape by hand or with a machine (if your lawn has large areas). If applying by hand, apply the tape along the edge of the cut pieces so it covers where they will meet when laid down together. 

Then place them on top of one another in an overlapping pattern before smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles. Once everything is lined up nicely, trim off any excess seam tape around the edges using scissors or a utility knife (and make sure to wear protective clothing).
