ABOUT ARTIFICIAL GRASS
Artificial grass or artificial turf, also known as synthetic turf, is a surface of synthetic fibers made to look like natural grass. It is manufactured using all man-made materials.
Throughout the years, synthetic grass has been installed for a wide spectrum of uses. We’ve all seen it in many places. Playgrounds and sporting fields, in public areas, often used to “grass” high traffic areas in resorts. Most commonly it will be found at mini-putt venues.
The use of synthetic grass in the more arid western states of the United States has moved beyond athletic fields to residential and commercial landscaping.
Just like the natural grass, our installations are unique as well. We know a poor installation can make even the best artificial turf look and perform badly. We are committed to installation techniques that produce a beautiful end result that will stand the test of time. Base prep, nailer boards, cutting, seaming, securing and finishing – we evaluate every step to ensure your project is a success.
Our 3 simple steps to installing the turf:
1. Prep your ground
- Make sure your ground is draining to the proper direction.
- Make sure the ground is level and you have removed or cut off all irrigation heads.
- Remove any organics or existing grass in the area. More soil or mechanical equipment may be necessary to prep the area prior to installation.
2. Under Grass Preparation
- Does the area need a cushion laid to allow a softer surface?
- Place weed block in areas of seams.
- Place weed block in areas around trees.
- Place weed block in edge areas.
3. Install Turf
- Need to nail down the turf into the prepped soil area.
- Need to knit seams together.
- Need to cut the turf to fit the area of service.
- Need to top dress the turf with sand or odor material for pet areas.
- Need to brush the grass to allow it to spring to action.
The Do It Yourself Person can install this type of grass on their own.
But for the person not so inclined, we do offer professional installation.
The cost is on a job by job basis due to the many different variables and customer preferences.
You may be excused for thinking artificial turf requires no maintenance. At first look, it really does appear to be a set-and-forget option compared to real grass. But it’s not, really. This is, even more, the case when artificial turf is used for a sporting venue. In really hot weather artificial grass needs irrigating (even though it doesn’t grow) to protect the synthetic material from the heat. There are drainage and maintenance to consider. Spraying with disinfectants and other products to kill bacteria, remove odors and reduce static. The removal of organic matter. Additional infill.
Now while a field made of real turf also requires maintenance, the costs associated with the upkeep of a sporting field decked out with artificial turf will generally be more than the upkeep of natural grass. Artificial turf may not need mowing, but it doesn’t repair itself or grow back either when damaged.
