Featured Article: Avoiding Visible Seams in Artificial Grass Installations

In this last year I have traveled across the nation assisting contractors in repairs and installations of synthetic turf seams. Whether it be residential, commercial or sports fields, seam problems have become a growing epidemic. Contractors are pulling their hair out because their seams are either visible, ruptured or installed improperly. I am often asked “What do I do to ensure that the seams will be undetectable and withstand the test of time”?

This month I will get in more detail regarding seam problems and how to acknowledge where they come from and how to prevent them. I will also teach the basic understanding of the Superseam Tool and its method which will allow your installation of seams to be effortless.
