STEP 3 Prep & Install PaverTurf Grid

In a flat area, unroll your Pre-Cut Turf Roll. The grass fibers should be facing down with the backing side up. Carefully trim the 1" tabs on all the squares and remove (these can be repurposed). You will need to trim the vertical scrim edges off of each turf side. Make sure you leave enough extra width per your design plan (to trim off excess in-place) if you will be butting the turf to another element (house wall, curb, pool coping, curb, etc.) If applicable, section off any other grouped pieces per cut plan. Next, flip the turf grid over (you may need to fold as necessary) and place Turf Grid in the appropriate area per layout plan. Make sure to place the direction of the fibers toward the focal point. (Remember the Turf is Directional)


Next, start at one side or corner and tuck in the edges around each paver and smooth out any any uneven areas as you work your way to the other side making sure all turf surfaces are laying flat and there is no puckering. You may need to make minor adjustments to the paver placements as necessary to fit the turf properly, this is normal.   


Make sure to trim any perimeter edges, as necessary. Secure any seams with the provided tape or glue prior to adding nails or any infill sand. We recommend rolling any tape joints with a carpet seam roller to firmly adhere the turf backing to the tape glue. The tape will be more pliable in warmer weather. For best results use in Temps above 50 degrees.  Be sure to add a few extra nails around any connection points. 

TIP: To remove any "Bubbled or Puckered" areas: 

1) First try adjusting any surrounding pavers to stretch out the bubble or relax the pucker then try smoothing out the area with your foot.

2) If problem area still exists but has improved slightly or is not too extreme, you may be able to nail it away. Try putting extra nails (every few inches in the center of the area working it out flat.

3) If the area is extremely bubbled or 1 & 2 did not work, then as a last resort, carefully cut perpendicular across the grid strip backing (the bottom side of the turf and not the topside) in a straight line and then start by removing 1/8" of inch at a time (not to much!) on one side carefully using scissors (only cutting through the backing and try not to cut through the top turf fibers) until you have eliminated the bubble. Then use a glue strip to connect the pieces back together. It is normal to have a few of these areas on a large project. 


You are on the home stretch!  Keep up the great work!  You got this!
