I've always just given it a good overlap. If you need to join the sheets, how about the double sided tape that they sell for damp proof membrane?  It's not exactly cheap, but I'm sure it would work.

I have joined it using the black plastic pegs with fins on the side sold to hold the membrane down. A wooden mallet will drive the peg through both layers, and if you are careful, you can pull the peg out and reuse the membrane if necessary.
