Artificial Turf Installation in Houston, TX

With the intense Texas sun, consistently high temperatures and infrequent rainfall, keeping grass green in Houston is nearly impossible. Whether you're sick of pouring time and money into your yard or want a more practical solution, you may consider artificial turf. The pros at ABC Home & Commercial Services can advise you on artificial turf installation in Houston and get the job done right. With ABC's help, you won't worry about your lawn again.

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 the edges are tucked correctly and that the binding of the joints is done just right so that your new turf looks perfect. 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.

Our process to install your artificial turf involves 7 steps.


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, to allow for proper drainage and installation. If needed, we would 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.

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.

Once that’s done, all you’ll have to do is enjoy your new lawn!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer free estimates?

Yes! After you contact us, we’ll set up a time for one of our inspectors to meet you at your home to get measurements of the area you’d like converted to artificial turf and a better understanding of what you’d like done and any other information we need about your yard’s features. Once we have gathered all of that information, we will send you a free, no-hassle estimate. Once you approve the scope of work, we will plan a time for the service to be done.

Do you have a guarantee for these services?

Yes! The products we install have a 100% lifetime warranty from the manufacturer.

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.

Can you work on my yard while I'm not at home?

Once your initial consultation is complete, we can schedule a time to return to install your artificial turf, even if you will be away at work. All we’ll need from you is any information about accessing your development or yard, whether that’s gate codes or any other special instructions.

Do you offer commercial services?

Yes! Our technicians are skilled at installing artificial turf on commercial properties in Houston, as well as in residential areas. The same benefits of artificial turf that make it great for residential purposes—that it’s low maintenance and stays green year-round, for starters—also make it a great choice for apartment buildings, schools, retail spaces and other types of facilities.

“I would definitely recommend ABC!! They were professional, courteous, and did a great job. During the treatment my blinds had to be removed, and they graciously put them back up before they left. Blair came three weeks later to do a follow-up check and was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave me more information and suggestions in regards to staying bed bug free. He even carried my large Amazon package into the garage for me. I would definitely recommend them for all your pest control needs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

“Fantastic group of people that take customer service seriously. From Norman coming out initially to check on us during our move to a new address, to Jansen setting everything up for us, she was a pleasure to talk to. Then, Patrick came out to the house today and handled himself very professionally and went above and beyond on our “preventative” inspection. He was very thorough and address all the concerns I had. Clicking all five stars is Easy on this one… Thank you very much, ABC Team!”
