How many nails do I need for artificial grass?

I just bought a few pieces for my DIY project, can someone give me an idea of how much nails I would be needing to keep them secured

We only recommend to use nails along the edges of artificial lawns at the installation, so you don't need to calculate on how many nails to be used by the areas, rather you need to measure up the perimeters of your lawn and make sure to have nails every 4-6" going along the entire edges. For an example, if you have 300 ft of edges, you will need roughly 900 pieces of nails (300 ft x 12/4). The nails come in as 50 lb. boxes, and each box has about 500 pieces of nails in it.

I think more nails used, the more durable of peeling it is. :)

The length of the nail used is more crucial than the number of what you are going to use.
