Low Maintenance Lawn Care
Keeping your lawn green year-long can be time-consuming.. Artificial turf is a great alternative to maintaining grass. It’s a low maintenance solution that can even lower residential water usage by as much as 50 percent.
The most common reasons our customers ask us to install artificial grass include:
- Improved appearance all year when compared to dead or dying grass that might get patchy or be vulnerable to disease.
- Low-maintenance requirements free up time to spend on other things.
- More resilient to wear and tear from foot traffic, as well as activity from children and pets.
- Better drainage in yards with pools or where water may collect, leading to pest issues and other problems.
- Increased enjoyment of your outdoor spaces for specialized uses, including putting greens and dog runs.
Unlike some home projects that can be performed by handy homeowners, installing artificial turf is best left to the pros. Our experienced technicians will make sure all of the edges are tucked correctly and that the binding of the joints is just right to ensure your new turf looks perfect.
Our artificial turf installation process involves 7 steps:
- Excavation: We typically recommend removing around four inches of existing sod, soil and roots to create a level surface. When we remove these materials, we will be extremely careful to avoid any damage to electric, gas or water lines.
- Preparing the Base: To bring your lawn up to its previous height, we will spread around four inches of crushed granite evenly across the project area, tamping until compact and smooth, for proper drainage and installation. If needed, we install any bender board during this stage.
- Rolling Out the Turf: Next, we will roll out the turf, paying careful attention to align the seams and secure them with seam tape or turf glue. We’ll also make sure to use the same spool or run for your job, so your new lawn will have the same color and texture throughout.
- Cutting to Fit: Using specialized tools, we then cut the turf to your desired dimensions, leaving a small amount of excess.
- Securing in Place: We’ll then pin your new turf along the perimeter, tucking the excess neatly into the border.
- Spreading Infill: Based on your needs, we’ll recommend a type of infill and the amount needed and spread this across the surface.
- Grooming Turf Blades: To get your new turf looking picture-perfect, we’ll use a broom or brush to get your blades to the desired angle.

What is the artificial turf made of?
Modern-day turf, including the products we use, are created from renewable resources. This generation of artificial turf contains 70% less petroleum than its predecessors. Both the turf and the infill are made from non-toxic ingredients. In many cases, these materials are recycled.
I've heard that artificial turf causes a build-up of bacteria and odors from pet waste. Is that true?
This is one of the most common myths about artificial turf. One of the inlays available contains a neutralizing agent, which can make your new yard ideal for your furry family members.
