Easy Synthetic Turf Installation with The Right Tools

June 20, 2016

Everything is easier if you have the right tool for the job, and installing synthetic turf is no exception. One of the best new tools for artificial turf installation is the EasySeam machine. Before this product, tape and glue were used to seam turf edges. It was a messy job, and it was difficult repairing mistakes along the way. This machine streamlines the process.

This hand-held electric tool uses a pre-programmed heating cycle that melts adhesive. Using a radio frequency energy field, it heats a special adhesive installation tape that binds synthetic turf. The machine doesn’t get hot and doesn’t cause damage to the grass. The result is a consistent seam that’s low-profile, clean and fast, with the ease of pushing a button. The edges of the fake lawn are seamed in seconds with no worries about using mineral spirits to clean messy adhesives. It saves hours on each installation, as there’s no need to wait for the glue to dry. Some of the benefits of the EasySeam machine are:

  • Seams artificial grass sections together without glue
  • Doesn’t get hot–no need to worry about burns, smoke, or odor
  • There is no adhesive mess
  • No distortion or damage to grass yarns
  • Professional quality, invisible seams
  • Easy seam repair, just deactivate the tape
  • Microprocessor operated, to calculate pitch thickness and apply the correct amount of heat to melt tape adhesive
  • Works on turf 1/4” to 3/4” inch thick (Blade Down)

Here are a few more tools of the trade, to make installation as easy as possible:

The Industrial Power Broom – This is perfect for making sure that your turf is clean before you install it. It’s about seven times as fast as a manual push broom. This product is available for rent from Watersavers.

The Carpet Stretcher – This stretches out turf during installation which makes for a clean and smooth surface.

The Carpet Knife: A simple folding knife that is perfect for cutting turf (Item# TURFKNIFE).

It’s time for water-saving landscapes, and in 2016, more homeowners and business owners are choosing artificial grass for their yards.
