Synthetic Turf

Synthetic / Artificial Turf Installation

Since the early 1990s, the use of synthetic grass has been driven primarily by two functions: the quality and variety of synthetic grasses that are available has improved dramatically, and cities and water conservation organizations have begun realizing the value of artificial grass as a conservation measure. It also requires less maintenance and care.

  • Reduce water usage by replacing regular lawn with artificial turf.
  • Artificial turf can be a better solution when the environment is particularly hostile to natural grass. An arid environment or one where there is little natural light are examples.
  • Artificial turf can withstand significantly more use than natural grass and can therefore be used much more frequently.
  • It is also a solution for homeowners who find the upkeep of lawns too much work.
  • Great for dogs. Natural grass will yellow due to urine burns. Synthetic grass will stay nice and green.
  • Suitable for roof gardens and swimming pool surrounds.
  • When properly installed has excellent drainage characteristics.
