Turf Padding Installation

Turf Pads can serve multiple purposes, but the two main reasons to install one is for comfort underfoot and to protect children of all ages while at play. Below are the installation instructions for our turf when using a turf pad.

Synthetic Lawn Outdoor Installation
  • First you will want to remove all grasses, sods, mulches, etc. from the marked areas. Note: If you are landscaping around trees shrubbery, flowers, light poles, utilities, etc., remember to mark around those areas and account for the turf edge configuration. Remember to leave ample area uncovered around the bases of trees.
  • Next cap any sprinklers that will not be used. Cap the sprinklers at the pipe level to avoid any leakage that might occur. Relocate sprinklers if necessary. Make sure to mark the location of the un-used sprinklers. Move electrical sprinklers and wiring inward and away from any hardscape or perimeter from six-to-eight inches to avoid accidental damage when nailing turf edges. Once the wiring and other materials are moved, lay the items on top of the subgrade surfacing and secure them with U-shaped nails.
  • Install the base with a decomposed granite which is a special mixture of gravel and sand. This material allows the liquids from the turf to properly drain. For non-pet landscape installations, install DG three inches in depth. Properly distribute and level the base material.
  • Wet the existing base to allow the material to settle properly. Compact the base by vibrating, tamping and rolling the gravel until you have a completely flat surface. Once this solid base is established, the turf can be easily nailed to the base.
  • If using a turf pad, you will want to cut a hole in the base the size and depth of the pad that is being used.
  • Roll out weed cloth if applicable. This fabric prevents any additional plants and weeds from growing through the base of the synthetic grass. Overlap the weed cloth edges by six inches and secure it with as many flat-head nails as necessary. This helps to prevent movement of the cloth. Trim the cloth to fit the landscape area leaving a 1/4” gap along the border. Note: Do not drive nails too deeply as this will cause dimpling.
  • Before laying the turf down, be sure to find either a straight edge or two perpendicular edges for alignment. Square the turf to fit the area to minimize cutting and fitting on all four sides. Once the turf is square, secure the square edges with temporary nails to hold it in place while securing the opposite edges.
  • When fitting the turf, over- cut the turf by one inch along the edges for a proper fit. The excess turf will be necessary for the tucking process. When seaming turf edges together, use a seaming tool. Cut the turf in an S-shape to avoid the turf possibly pushing against each other's angles, which can create discoloration illusion in the seamed area. Install nails every six inches along the edge and drive them down three-quarters of the way. When finished, separate the grass to avoid pulling the blades down with the nail. The nail will be hidden with the grass blade at the base of the mat. Don't drive the nails down too deeply as it will pull the turf down and create dimples. Be sure to secure seams with six-inch U-nails every six inches. Make sure the U-nail is driven to the same level of the mat and hidden with the grass blades.
  • Note: When seaming the turf over a turf pad, you will want to use our turf seam tape or our turf seam tape & adhesive pack which features turf seam tape and a gallon adhesive bucket.
  • Tucking the turf means you will be hiding the turf edges against any hardscape or border by using a metal bar call a wonder bar. This will give your installation a clean plush look.
  • Use a power brush or heavy bristled brush to pull against the grain of the grass to make it stand up. Apply your infill or sand and spread the granules evening throughout the entire turf installation. The infill will hold the blades upright and give the turf more weight.
  • Brush up your turf once again with a power brush or bristled brush to force your infill into the base of the turf. This will allow the turf to settle and create optimal stability for your synthetic grass. Follow up the process to also remove excess debris.
Glue Down Indoor Installation
  • First you will want to make sure that your surface is level, clean and dry. Our turf flooring can be installed on concrete, dusting, powdering concrete, gypcrete , pressure treated decking, wood, or backer board.
  • Next you will want to dry lay your turf to implement roll sequencing to minimize normal variations. Manufacturing details will be back stamped on one side of the backing; this will assist in determining fiber direction.
  • If adding a turf pad, you would install this over the base with either double-sided tape or glue.
  • Apply adhesive or double-sided tape and then lay the turf.
  • Apply a bead of seam sealer to all seams.
  • Roll the product with a 75 lb. Weighted roller across the width and length of the product surface.
  • Once completed, the installation much remain in dry conditions for 72 hrs. in order for the adhesive to cure properly.
Don't see what you're looking for? 
Will this foam retain moisture and grow mildew or mold?
Our Lawn Pad will not retain moisture and is mold and mildew resistant. The Lawn Pad is porous.
I am looking to make an indoor putting green. If I order the putting turf and this 3/4 lawn pad, would I glue the turf directly to the pad. And, if so, can it then sit directly on top of my floor so that it is movable?
You can glue the turf to the Lawn Pad. You would just use a pressure sensitive adhesive to bond them together. Once they are glued together, you can then place the turf on any surface you choose.
I am looking at the 3/4 inch pad, but what is the length and width of the pad?
Tam Trinh
Our Lawn Pads are 7.5' x 3' in size.
If this pad is laid underneath artificial turf, how does it drain? Thanks.
Our Lawn Pad is somewhat porous allowing water to flow through it to the ground underneath.
Would the 1-1/8" thick pad be ok for a putting green application? I'm looking for a pad to be used in a play area by young children and as a putting green.
Our 1-1/8" thick pad can be used under a putting green in a play area where kids will play.
If I place this under turf on concrete with a drain in the middle, will it let the water flow underneath? I'm worried it will impede the flow, always be wet, and become moldy.
Our Lawn Pad is somewhat porous allowing water to flow through it to the ground underneath. It will then flow to the drain if there is a slope to it. Our lawn pad would dry over time and would not become moldy. This product is mold and mildew resistant.
Is this material easily able to be sliced to fit a specific shape, or does it crumble?
You can easily cut our Lawn Pad to fit an area with a sharp utility knife and a straight edge. Even though this product is made of foam, it will not crumble when cut.
Can this be used under Pet friendly turf? Will the pad hold the urine smell and bacteria?
Our Lawn pad can be used under a pet-friendly turf. This pad will not hold the urine smell and bacteria. This product is commonly used as a drainage and crushed aggregate replacement in agricultural uses.
Is this a suitable underlayment for pet synthetic turf?
Our Lawn Pads are great as underlay under our Pet Turf. These pads are non-absorbent and will help to add cushion under foot.
I am planning a duel use area that will be used for play and pets. How well does this pad stand up to pet odors?
Our Lawn Pads are porous and will allow for any liquids to flow through, but some organics from urine can over time get trapped in the pad. To help combat this, we recommend placing a layer of our Zeolite Max between the padding and the turf and to also add Zeolite Max as part of your infill system for your turf. This will help neutralize the odors that come from urine.
I am looking to install artificial turf on a flat rubber roof. I'd like to ensure drainage happens. Can I use the lawn pad as my base? Is this safe for a rubber roof or do I need to use drainage tiles that are "rubber roof approved"?
You can install our turf over our Lawn Pad and achieve the proper drainage you desire. Our Lawn Pads are porous and allow water to flow through to the subfloor below properly.
Should the fabric be installed up or down
The fabric must be installed down since this fabric prevents any additional plants and weeds from growing through the base of the synthetic grass.
I am looking to make driving range mats for my ladies golf team. wondering if this pad in 3/4" would be dense enough to simulate natural ground.
David Schwartz
Our Lawn Pads won’t be dense enough for this use. However we do offer pre-made putting green mats that could work great for your team, please see here!filter=870
what is the fall rating for your 2 and 1/4 inch pad?
It would be 8' - 9' fall rating.
Can this be installed outside over concrete?
Yes, you may install the lawn pad over concrete.
Won't the lawn pad be visible from the sides if the grass is the exact same size as the pad? How do I prevent that, or does this not happen?
If you are looking to make the lawn pad even with the grass, you may use an extra inch to cover the sides of the pad and tuck the turf in or you may even try to set the pad lower into the ground and then install the turf over it.
Hello. Can I install this product on an exterior backyard concrete slab? If so, would I glue it down or would I install it in a dry application as a floating pad?
Yes, you may install these pads over concrete. Either installation type would work, you may either leave it floating or glue it down. Please see detailed installation instructions under the "Installation" tab on the product page.
Hello, what sizes do these pads come in? It is not clear. The website has one size, and in the Q&A, it says something different. Thank you very much.
The pads are 7.5' x 3' in size.
I am looking to install a putting green over an exterior concrete slab. Will any of these shock pads work for this application? If so, which pad would you recommend? Will it drain ok?
Timothy J Tyree
The Lawn Pad will work perfectly under the putting green turf and will drain optimally.
The lawn pad I have is the interlocking kind of like a puzzle piece, and it has the multi-color rubber side and a white mesh side. Which side do I put on the ground?
The fabric side should be facing up when installing our Lawn Pads.
Will water flow through this padding?

This pad is great! It is firm but is shock absorbent. Very durable, it will take years to wear these mats down. Its very easy to install. We put it under our artificial grass and it worked out great! The water drains right through and is not soggy. We are very happy with these mats.

When installed under turf it will soften impacts but was not as soft as I expected. Not easy to cut to curves around pool deck but we got it done. The tongues and slots arrangement are such that it only goes together one way, so you should order extra material to account for waste.
