How To Attach Artificial Grass To Wall (Simple Tips)

Attaching artificial turf to a wall can be a lot easier than you think. You don’t need any special tools, just some basic supplies and know-how. 

If your goal is to add greenery to an indoor space or create an outdoor space indoors, this article will show you how to attach artificial grass rolls securely right onto the wall.

Attaching artificial grass to different surfaces requires different techniques and materials.
Proper installation of artificial grass on a wall or frame can add greenery and warmth to indoor and outdoor spaces.
Anchoring artificial grass to the ground is crucial in preventing the grass from moving or lifting.
Using artificial grass indoors provides a low-maintenance alternative to natural flooring and wall decorations.
Regular maintenance is essential in keeping your artificial grass clean and safe for children and pets.

Use a Caulking Gun

If you’re using a glue gun, then all you have to do is spread glue on the back of your artificial grass and press it down on the wall. 

You can use a staple gun or nail gun to attach the artificial grass to your wall as well. A rope can also be used instead of these tools.

If you are planning to install artificial grass on concrete surfaces, like a patio or driveway, it’s important to know the right technique for proper adhesion. You can check out our guide on how to attach artificial grass to concrete for step-by-step instructions and tips on the best types of adhesives to use.

Tape it Down

Use a double-sided tape that is easy to remove. You can use painter’s tape, but it is often difficult to remove and may leave behind some adhesive. 

Look for a double-sided tape with a strong adhesive that will hold your turf in place but also allow you to remove it when you’re ready to replace it or move it somewhere else.

Apply the tape over any holes or seams where grass would be visible on the wall. If there are gaps between pieces of grass (especially if they are small), apply some hot glue into the gap before placing each piece of artificial turf onto the wall so they overlap properly without any gaps showing through

Double-Sided Tape Options for Artificial Grass

Tape TypeDescription
Acrylic Double-Sided TapeAn adhesive tape that’s easy to install and remove, making it ideal for temporary installations.
Hook and Loop TapeSimilar to Velcro, this tape uses a hook and loop system to secure the artificial grass in place. It’s easy to install and remove and can be reused multiple times.
Seam TapeDesigned to seam two pieces of artificial grass together, this tape is strong and durable, but can be difficult to remove.
Polypropylene Carpet TapeAn affordable option that provides a strong hold, but can leave behind adhesive residue when removed.
Outdoor Carpet TapeDesigned for outdoor use, this tape is waterproof and weather-resistant, ensuring a strong hold in all conditions. It’s easy to install and remove, but may leave behind some adhesive residue.

Use a Nail Gun

Make sure the nail gun is unplugged and the trigger is not being pulled.

Place the artificial grass on top of your wall so that it is even at all sides, making sure that any folds or creases are straightened out.

If you want an extra strong hold, tack down one side of your artificial grass to your wall with nails just as you would with wood. 

Then pull off any staples or tacks holding down any other parts of the artificial grass you used in step 2 and replace them with staples or tacks at evenly spaced intervals along each edge of the synthetic lawn fabric to provide enough support for attaching weights if needed (we’ll go into more detail on this later).

Attach it with Glue

You’ll need to use a special glue that is made for attaching artificial grass. We recommend using the Super Sculpt Glue. Apply it directly to your wall, then spread it out evenly with a large trowel. Make sure the glue is dry before laying on your artificial lawn!

Glue Options for Attaching Artificial Grass

Glue TypeDescription
Super Sculpt GlueA popular choice among professionals, this glue is designed specifically for artificial grass installations. It’s easy to apply and provides a strong hold when dried.
Landscape AdhesiveThis adhesive is ideal for both direct bonding and seaming applications. It’s suitable for use on a variety of surfaces, including concrete, asphalt, and wood.
Multipurpose Construction AdhesiveA versatile adhesive that can be used for a variety of projects, including attaching artificial grass. It dries clear and provides a strong, permanent bond.
Heavy-Duty Adhesive SprayDesigned for quick and easy installation, this adhesive spray is ideal for attaching artificial grass to surfaces such as concrete or wood. It dries quickly and provides a strong hold.
Epoxy AdhesiveThis two-part adhesive provides a strong bond that’s ideal for outdoor applications. It cures quickly and is resistant to water, chemicals, and weathering.

Staple It

To attach the grass to your wall, you can do one of the following:

  • Use a staple gun
  • Use a hammer and nail
  • Use a drill and screwdriver bit (this is the most foolproof option)
  • Use an industrial stapler that weighs about 10 pounds

If you’re using an industrial stapler and don’t have one at home like I do, you can use any regular metal or plastic staple remover for removing staples from woodwork.

Anchoring artificial grass to the ground is crucial, especially in areas with high wind or other weather conditions that could cause the grass to move or lift. Our guide on how to anchor artificial grass to the ground will walk you through several techniques and materials you can use to keep your artificial grass in place.

Felt, Sawdust, and Adhesive

Apply the adhesive to a sponge and spread it on the wall where you want to install your artificial grass.

Take your artificial grass, lay it out flat on a table, then apply small strips of double-sided tape around all sides (except for the top) of your carpeting, being sure that they overlap by at least 3 inches (7.5 cm).

Press down firmly on each piece until it sticks securely in place; be careful not to overdo it and make any creases in the backing material which could snag later when you’re cutting it into strips!

Repeat step 2 until all pieces have been glued down securely; then let dry overnight before proceeding further with installation steps 5-8 below!

Lashing and Rope

If you are looking for a more natural look, this method is a great choice. This method is best if your wall has lots of texture that the grass can easily be lashed to.

You will need:

  • Lashing twine or rope
  • Screws/nails (optional) to secure the lashing to the wall

If you are planning to install artificial grass on a frame, like a fence or gate, it’s important to know the proper installation techniques to avoid any issues. Our guide on how to attach artificial grass to a frame covers the different types of frames, materials needed, and step-by-step instructions on how to properly attach the grass.

Use the Classic Double-sided Tape

To attach artificial grass to a wall using the Classic Double-sided Tape, simply peel off a piece of the backing and stick it onto your chosen area of wall. 

Next, remove the paper from the grass and lay out your artificial lawn on top of the sticky side of the tape. 

If there are any air bubbles between the surface of your wall and where you want to put down your lawn then use a squeegee to press out any excess air before pressing firmly into place with both hands.

If you find that for some reason this method isn’t working for you or if after having been in place for several months it’s looking like an eyesore then just peel away all traces with ease thanks to how easy it is to remove!

Install with the Glue Strip Method

Use a glue strip to attach the grass to your wall. If you’re using a glue stick, apply it directly onto the fake grass and press firmly into place on the wall. 

Use a hot glue gun for a stronger bond, or silicone adhesive if you want something more permanent. Rubber cement is another option that’s easy to find at most major department stores.

Sew It on to The Wall

  • Use a sewing machine to sew the artificial grass to the wall.
  • Thread the needle with thread that is similar in color to your artificial grass.
  • Sew around each of the four sides of your frame using a straight stitch and a few inches apart from one another.
  • Cut away excess thread from both ends of each seam with scissors or a seam ripper, being careful not to cut into any threads that are holding down on top of your frame!

Build A Wooden Planter Box for The Rolls of Grass

Attach your artificial grass to the planter box using staples. This will give it a more natural look and will also provide support for when you attach it to the wall.

You’re almost done! The only thing left to do is build a vertical garden in order to hide the planter box and keep everything looking neat and tidy (and green!).

Build A Vertical Garden With Artificial Grass

The next time you’re looking for a way to make your vertical garden more welcoming and nature-like, consider using artificial grass. 

The addition of artificial grass can be a great way to add visual interest and texture as well as create a focal point in an otherwise bare space. To see what we mean, check out these images of creative vertical gardens made with artificial grass:
