Are you tired of brown spots and constant mowing to keep your lawn in shape? Do you tire of paying a high water bill on a lawn you have to constantly maintain? If this sounds like you, you might be an excellent candidate for installing a artificial turf lawn.
If you want a gorgeous outdoor living space that lasts, you should consider installing artificial turf, also known as artificial turf or artificial grass. It’s perfect for playgrounds and landscaping, and it never needs maintenance! For a lawn that looks naturally green and fresh year-round, artificial turf comes highly recommended.

Benefits of Artificial Turf

Artifical turf offers a lot of benefits over natural grass, extending far beyond those which may be immediately obvious like the minimal maintenance required, being reliable through draughts or winter, and the absence of weeds, bare spots, and ruts.
If you choose artificial turf for a location, you also eliminate the risk of grass stains, don’t have to worry about managing light and shade, can choose antibacterial brands to minimize risks to children or pets, and minimize or eliminate puddles. These features make it ideal not only for fields used in sports or play for children, but for dog parks, high-traffic thoroughfares at commercial properties, and a host of other locations.
It’s not just your family you benefit when you choose a artificial lawn. The environment gains from lower water usage and lower temperatures the synthetic lawn creates. Cost-efficient artificial grass cuts your home’s water usage, and saves the air, soil and water tables from harmful fertilizers and pesticides involved in live grass upkeep
Low Maintenance
Anyone with a beautiful yard will tell you that the look they achieved didn’t happen overnight. They’ll also be the first ones to tell you that it doesn’t stay that way without constant upkeep. Even after someone has spent thousands and worked their weekends away to obtain beautiful landscaping, the majority of well-manicured lawns cost hundreds of dollars and countless hours of labor just to maintain. Artificial lawns just exist, nearly labor-free. An artificial lawn means no more watering, fertilizer, or dangerous pesticides. Best of all, you can kiss your landscaper and lawnmower goodbye.
Heavy foot traffic is one of the worst enemies of a healthy and beautiful lawn. Despite a homeowner’s best efforts, sometimes children and pets don’t adhere to the constant pleas to keep off the grass. Luckily, a artificial turf can withstand heavy foot-traffic. A natural lawn is susceptible to being worn or having bare patches from walkways and turbulent weather. Artificial grass, however, doesn’t wear out. Artificial greens are specifically designed to hold up against anything life may throw at it. With a synthetic lawn, you can relegate your concern about playing children, pets, scorching heat, and freezing temperatures to the past.
California’ weather can be harsh and sometimes unpredictable. Some parts of the state endure constant heatwaves, where other portions experience dramatic drops in temperature. In the portions of CA that see cold fronts, getting natural grass to grow can be a struggle. Most homeowners end up with brown lawns all through the winter. Other who stick to the warmer climates end up paying high water bills in order to keep dry, dead grass patches from spreading. Artificial turf holds up against all types of weather. It even makes short work of a downpour, ready for use a few hours after the storm subsides
Traditional yards and landscaping are not only expensive and time-consuming, they take up considerable resources that could be put to other uses. Artificial turf products are made of recycled and sustainable components. Moreover, they give the homeowner the freedom to cut down on water costs, and eliminate the use of toxic fertilizers and pesticides. Also, because the synthetic lawn means you can retire your lawn care equipment, you cut your carbon footprint significantly.
A artificial turf’s full-bodied thickness and deep green color make any house look spectacular. The clean, bright appearance not only improves the look of your home but enhances your entire neighborhood. There is a reason why many businesses, sporting arenas, and golf courses choose artificial grass over traditional lawns. High quality artificial grass will always appear soft, feel great to the touch, and look better year round than seeded grass.
Artificial Turf are considerably pet-friendly. Urine passes through, leaving no discoloration or scarring. Fecal matter is easily removed. More, no matter the weather, or the time of year, your pets will enjoy rolling around and playing in the synthetic grass. Your pets will appreciate being able to bounce outside without getting wet or muddy whenever their hearts desire.
Pro Sports Play
Sports lovers will rejoice once they realize that they can practice and play year-round on lush, soft synthetic grass. However, soccer and football players are just the beginning. Golf enthusiasts will love practicing on their private greens as well.
Playground Essential
Artificial grass and turf are a cushy, durable addition to parks and playgrounds. Made with durable, yet soft materials they protect from scrapes and falls. The synthetic lawn also withstands wear and tear far better than seeded grass.

Artificial Turf Installation Process

In order to last the longest and look its best, artificial turf needs to be installed correctly. We take pride in our artificial turf installation projects and work with you from start to finish to make sure your turf is exactly what you wanted. Whether you want a backyard putting green or to install a artificial turf playground, our installation process is always the same:
  1. Design phase: In the design phase for installing artificial turf, we meet with you to discuss your project and what your desired outcome is. We also look at the area you want to install artificial turf to determine the soil condition, existing drainage capacity, and existing design elements—and to take measurements of the area.
  2. Ground preparation: During this phase, we locate any underground irrigation or electrical lines that need to be avoided and determine the best course of action for removing the top layer of soil. We then level the ground and install the base surface, including the drain, level it, and compact it.
  3. Artificial grass installation: Once the ground is prepared and the base layer is smooth, we will unroll the layer of artificial turf, trimming it so it fits within the specified design. We then secure the new layer of turf to the ground and apply weather-resistant adhesive.
  4. Infill application: After the artificial turf is in place, we place an infill material on top, which will settle down on the base in between the blades of grass. The infill helps eliminate pet odor, protect the turf from the elements, and keep the grass fluffy and level.
