Landscaping & Artifical Turf FAQs

What kind of maintenance does turf require?

Turf requires minimal maintenance. Using a blower to remove leaves and other yard debris is all that is needed in most cases.

Where no pets are present, no maintenance is required other than blowing leaves off the turf. Where pets are present, hosing it off occasionally or applying urine neutralizing chemicals may be required. I can elaborate on that if need be, but turf tends to stink if dogs keep peeing on it.

How long does turf last?

Depending on your choice of material, turf is guaranteed to last between 8 to 10 years.

There is a very large selection of turf from many different manufacturers. The most important things to take into consideration when selecting your turf are: foot traffic, softness, density and height.

Why turf instead of natural grass?

If you consider the yearly cost to properly fertilize and water a given lawn area, plus the cost of maintaining it, turf will pay for itself in 2-3 years and then last another 7-8 years.

Does turf come with warranties and what do they cover?

All turf comes with anywhere fro 8 to 10 yrs warranty from the manufacturer. The warranty covers the material only.

Why should I use a turf contractor with a license when I can save money using any old contractor selling turf?

A licensed contractor that has invested years (and a lot of money) in building a business and a reputation has a much greater incentive to maintain those achievements (and capitalize on those efforts) by continuing to do a good job and by standing behind the work they do (e.g. by providing good customer service post installation if necessary) than some guys out of a truck.

Will weeds be a problem?

In general no. Occasionally weeds can pop up around the fringes, but it's rare. Keep in mind that the idea of "maintenance free", in reference to anything, is utopia. Everything needs a little bit of maintenance.

Is turf stain resistant?

Yes. Very resistant.

What keeps turf from fading?

Turf is made of UV resistant plastic and is guaranteed to not fade for anywhere from 8 to 10 yrs, depending on turf selection.

Will my HOA allow us to install turf?

We have not yet run into a situation where an HOA did not allow turf. Check your HOA's CCNR's to make sure though.
