Q: WHY DO YOU PUT SAND IN THE TURF?

Q: HOW ARE THE PIECES JOINED? OR DOES IT COME AS ONE PIECE?
A: Our rolls of turf come manufactured to 3.7m widths, so it doesn’t come as one piece.The joins are connected using a special Bostik adhesive which is designed for arti cial turf projects.We apply this adhesive to a 300mm joining strip (tape) and connect the two pieces together.
