QUESTION: hOW LONG DOES ARTIFICIAL TURF LAST?
ANSWER: We only use high quality artificial grass that we have tested and trust. An artificial lawn, putting green or artificial turf patio installed by Turf Team should last 20+ years.
QUESTION: will the color of the turf fade in the sun?
ANSWER: No, our artificial turf products are designed to withstand UV rays without fading.
QUESTION: does the turf get hot in the summer?
ANSWER: No, our artificial lawns, putting greens and patios do not heat up like you may have experienced on artificial turf sports fields, as we use a specialized cooling infill. With improvements in artificial grass blade technology combined with zeolite infill, artificial grass will keep cool during those hot summer days. Additionally, it can easily be cooled off with a quick watering from your hose or sprinklers.
QUESTION: is it dog friendly?
ANSWER: Yes, in fact dogs love the feel of artificial turf. Artificial turf eliminates hole digging and muddy paws. With our odor-free infill, urine drains away without any smell. You can simply scoop any dog waste up and hose the area down like it never even happened!
QUESTION: is it safe for kids?
ANSWER: Yes, artificial turf is soft for your kids to play on; for playground use, we can install an extra layer of padding underneath. Additionally, artificial turf is actually safer than real grass because there is no need to apply harmful fertilizers or pesticides. We also use organic infill materials unlike those nasty rubber pellets found in turf soccer fields.
QUESTION: does My Turf require maintenance?
ANSWER: Artificial Turf is very low-maintenance but not zero-maintenance. If you would like to clear off any leaves and debris, simply use a leaf blower, rake or give us a call to do it for you. If you place heavy objects on the turf, over time the grass fibers may get matted down, simply brush the turf fibers back over for a brand new look. Every year or two, artificial turf should be power-broomed to remove any moss that may accumulate over long periods. We provide that service throughout the fall and winter months.
QUESTION: How long does the installation take?
ANSWER: That depends on the size of the area we are working on, and other variables such as access to the yard, the slope of the site and whether or not an irrigation system is present. Installing 1,000 ft/sq will take 3-4 days, while putting greens will usually take 4-6 days. Additionally, heavy rain may delay projects during the final infill stage.
QUESTION: is artificial turf really expensive?
ANSWER: While it is a much larger up-front cost than natural grass, artificial grass actually pays itself off in the long run. The Price is only one small element of the value that artificial grass provides. Consider paying $200/month on lawn care (power raking, aerating, over-seeding, fertilizing, mowing, edging & watering). That adds up to nearly $12,000 over 5 years! So is it really that expensive after all…?
