Title: layout turf, when and how to add
Post by: Cutnshoots on April 24, 2021, 08:06:19 pm
Hi this is probably going to be a "stupid" question to you old timers, but I have my track backdrop ordered now and I was asking him about the road layouts he sells, he suggested taping the backdrop the the wall sheets I've installed and suggested not laying the road over turf, My concern is that if I cut the turf up to many small sections, is this going to look like a chop job?  Do most of you set your building on the turf or cut a hole in your turf to fit them? I haven't worked with the turf grass at all yet but before I start slicing and dicing, I was wanting to get a idea of how easy it is to blend things back in? I was planning on using adhesive spray for mounting the turf, so once it goes' down its past the point of no return. I'm curious to find some tips before I ruin a lot of material on how to best do this,... adding other buildings to the layout later on and such.. absolutely any knowledge would be much apricated!

It's not a stupid question. I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea NOT to attach the turf permanently. See how things work out first.
