Artificial turf grass is sometimes used on outdoor patios to give a grassy look to an outdoor area that might not otherwise have a lot of greenery. In some cases it is used to create a putting green for avid golfers. Whatever the reason, installing the turf on concrete is not difficult and can be accomplished within a day.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Roll out the material and let it flatten down and get back to its original position. Set the turf carpet aside.

  2. 2

    Brush carpet adhesive over the patio surface on one half.

  3. 3

    Roll the artificial turf carpet up on both ends so that the rolls meet in the middle. Set the carpet down at the middle.

  4. 4

    Roll out one side of the turf over the adhesive. Smooth down the carpet with a carpet roller to remove bubbles. Start in the middle and work your way out.

  5. 5

    Spread adhesive over the other half of the patio, and roll out the other half of the turf.

  6. 6

    Overlap the turf if you require more than one piece to cover the patio. Overlap 2 to 3 inches. Once overlapped, cut through the carpet at the edge of the overlap to make a perfect fit. Slice through both pieces of turf at once. Then lift up the top turf edge and remove the strips that you cut. Add a little adhesive to the edges and lay both sections back down.

  7. 7

    Trim along the edges to remove excess artificial turf. Use a utility knife to cut the material.
