Quickly and Easily Patch Up Small Tears [DIY Tip]


Repurposed turf is great for all sorts of outdoor applications! AGR purchases the highest quality sports turf and sells it to homes and businesses for a fraction of the cost of new. That said, repurposed sports turf can come with small imperfections.

If your repurposed turf has a small hole or tear there’s no need to worry. You can quickly patch it up using this pro advice!


Option 1 — Secure it with nails



1. Hammer

2. Nails

3. Elbow Grease


What to do:

If you have any existing tears or holes, the loose turf can easily be secured with a few nails. Just place a few nails evenly along the length of the tear and nail them securely in place. 


Option 2 — Replace it with excess turf 


1. Strip of Excess Turf

2. Box Cutter

3. Nails 

4. Hammer


What to do:

You can replace turf with punctures or marking using excess materials. First cut the unwanted bit of turf out using a boxing cutter. Next take a bit of excess turf and cut it to match the area that’s been removed. Next, lay it with the stitching and blade directions facing the same way. You want the blades to all face the same way for the most realistic looking product. Once the turf is in place, secure it by nailing it down.
