Laying Easigrass

Hello all experienced installers, or anyone with a creative solution!

 

We have just tried to lay a 6x4m section of Easigrass. For some unknown reason ( probably just rushing in the hot weather ) we cut the 6m long section too narrow , so now its 6m x125mm short of the paving edge. 

We have plenty of peices to fit, but no overlapping adjoining tape for these strips. I thought of gluing some tape to the underside of a suitable long strip but the join will show i woild think .

 

Does anyone have any ideas about a good way to fit either a strip of additional grass and still hide the join?

I am also  beginning to think that a non grass edge might look better, as there would then be no join in the main grass section . Maybe brick ? 

The adjoining paving edge is a light coloured marshalls type of constituted paving path ,nothing fancy,  so i am racking my brain to come up with a material that could form an edge between the grass and the path ,

 

please could anyone offer any advice as i am deeply worried about tellibng the client that weve messed up !! Th grass cost 700 quid so it would be a very costly mistake indeed

 

Thank you,
