Sometimes artificial turf joint may split due to the shrink. Shrink means cold makes the lawn contract. Although we always select stable materials for the products, generally, all objects expand when heated and contract when cooled. In some places the temperatures between day and night are quite different, in this situation, shrink may cause gaps to appear. You need to use seaming tape and artificial grass glue to re-seam the artificial grass. Subsequently, we recommend you use U-pins to fix the lawn every 50cm, both horizontal direction and vertical direction.
