Tips for making HardiPlank seams as smooth as possible?
 
I'm wondering if there are any good techniques for making HardiPlank seams, where two boards meet each other, as smooth as possible. I realize that one of the two recommended techniques is to abut them directly without a gap but with flashing behind them. But beyond that I'm wondering what else can be done to improve the joint.

I think about 1/8" separation, flashed behind the lap, and filled with appropriate caulk is a good method.
