I saw a small patch on my artificial grass and I'm wondering if I can still fix it or I would have to bring a new piece to replace it?

To replace a piece of turf, you need to be aware of the followings:

1. If you have multiple pieces of turf from your original installation, and only to replace one piece, you need to know that the new pieces of turf might not match up completely with the rest. Artificial grass is made by dye lots, exactly the same as carpets. Even though the product is the same, but different production runs will have different shade to it. By looking at the products themselves, you won't see any differences, but when you put together two pieces of the same product from different product batches, you will notice the dye lot variations. So it is always the best to use the product from the same dyelot for replacement. People normally keep some extras from the installation only to use them to make patches and replacements when needed at a future time. Even using the product from the same dye lot for replacement, you might have issues of variations if the original turf has been installed long time ago: pretty much like carpet, the originally installed piece has its wear and tear during the usage for a long time, now you put a brand new piece next to it, it won't look just right. 

2. You need to follow the same procedure on replacing a piece of turf as you normally do with installations, here is the link on our suggestions on how to:
