Thats exactly the best way to do it, the sun relaxis it so it can conform to the ground. You just drag it over itself. We did it with full length rolls. This isnt a job for two guys

Well it wasn't possible in this scenario in a back yard with 2 hours of direct sunlight per day.

I just think its funny you said the reps are clueless and incompetent on YOUR FIRST INSTALL. They might not be pros like you on your first installbut that is a real tip. You could leave it in the front to heat up then drag it back, tarp it and use a heater etc. get creative. Like everything else in life there is no absolutes

Yeah I guess it would be a great tip if A) it wasn't overcast B) the temps were over 30 degrees C) the job was in full sun D) if there was even room enough to flip the grass E) I had 4 hours to dick around and wait on the sun to heat it up while 5 guys are surfing the internet on their phones. I would have expected them to say "hey, try a carpet stretcher". So yeah please forgive me for having an opinion that the dealer was absolutely no help.
