Artificial Turf / Artificial Grass
Why Choose Artificial Turf in the South Bay
Every homeowner dreams of a flawless, verdant lawn. But the reality of maintaining natural grass can be daunting – frequent watering, mowing, fertilizing, and weeding are all time-consuming tasks. That’s where artificial turf comes in!
Artificial turf offers the following benefits:
Low Maintenance: Say goodbye to mowing, weeding, and constant watering. With artificial turf, you only need occasional rinsing to keep it clean and fresh.
Saves Water: In drought-prone areas like Los Angeles, water conservation is crucial. Artificial turf requires minimal watering, helping you save on utility bills and conserve water.
Year-Round Green: Unlike natural grass, artificial turf stays vibrant and green all year round, regardless of the weather conditions.
Safe and Durable: Our high-quality artificial turf is durable and safe for kids and pets. It’s resistant to heavy foot traffic and doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals.
How is Artificial Turf Put In?
Installing artificial turf involves several steps to ensure a durable, visually appealing, and safe surface.
1. Site Preparation: The first step in installing artificial turf is to prepare the site. This involves removing the existing natural grass, weeds, rocks, and any debris. The ground is then graded and leveled to create a smooth and even surface. This step may also involve installing a weed barrier fabric to prevent weed growth through the turf.
2. Base Material: Once the site is prepared, a base material, usually crushed stone or decomposed granite, is spread and compacted to create a stable and well-draining foundation. This base layer provides support and helps with water drainage.
3. Edging: Edging is installed around the perimeter of the area to contain the artificial turf. Typically, this involves using bender boards or flexible plastic or metal strips to create a clean and defined edge.
4. Turf Installation: The artificial turf is then rolled out over the prepared base. Careful attention is paid to ensure that the turf’s grain (the direction in which the blades of grass lay) runs uniformly throughout the installation. Seams are carefully joined and secured using specialized adhesive or seaming tape. The turf is also trimmed to fit the area precisely.
5. Infill Material: Infill material, usually made of sand or rubber granules, is spread over the turf. This infill serves multiple purposes, such as adding weight to the turf, helping the blades of grass stand upright, and improving shock absorption on sports fields.
6. Brushing and Compaction: After the infill is evenly distributed, the turf is brushed with a power broom to lift and separate the blades of grass. This brushing enhances the turf’s appearance and ensures the infill is well-distributed. It is then compacted using a roller or a heavy roller machine to settle the turf and infill.
7. Final Touches: Once the artificial turf is installed and infilled, any excess infill material is removed, and the turf is carefully brushed one final time to give it a natural appearance. The edges are secured, and the installation is thoroughly inspected for any imperfections or issues.
Installing artificial turf requires precision and attention to detail to achieve a seamless and natural look. When done correctly, artificial turf provides a low-maintenance, eco-friendly, and visually appealing alternative to natural grass for various landscaping and sports applications.
