Mike, will you please share your secret how you secure your grass to your layout? Your seams are, well, seamless so to say... I've bought some art grass and am puzzling how to get it connected to the base of my layout. In a way that it will last many moons, not a few hours.
My plan is/was to secure it between two aluminum strips and flip it over, so the aluminum is not visible. Very time and aluminum consuming. But looking at your gorgeous layout it seems you just have found a way better method..!

Thank you for your kind words,..
If I need to join it I use the same method as you suggest, I have used a aluminium sign bord, sadly the same stuff that caused the tragic Glenfield tragedy, I got a few free sheets years ago..I also screw the grass down ,to the wooden sub structure..I roll out the shed roofing felt 1st , nailing it down..position the buildings , and decided were the roads, grass pavement will go...the grass is cut and fixed to the road/roofing felt, .

Hope this helps
Mike

Are you sure you didn't feel a bit of a drip.
