What Kind of Maintenance does it Require?
It is more of a matter of keeping it clean than maintenance. On occasion, a perimeter weed treatment may be required. Depending on your unique situation some weeds may grow on top of all these products. Easily remove organic materials from the surface by using a leaf blower. Rakes may be required for moving heavier objects; however, a leaf blower is an ideal tool for general upkeep. A stiff bristle broom can be used to “fluff” the high traffic areas worn from use.
1. What is artificial turf made of?
Typically Synthetic Grass is created with a blend of polypropylene and polyethylene, which is made into synthetic fibers to look and feel like natural grass. Then it is joined with rubber granules and silica sand to help keep the blades upright.
2. Why Choose Artificial Turf for Your Lawn?
Synthetic Grass, installed correctly, can provide you with a beautiful lawn without the hassle and expense of trying to maintain a problem-plagued natural lawn in the changing Texas climate. You eliminate watering, mowing, fertilizing and adding chemicals/pesticides, re-seeding, allergies and muddy paw prints!
3. Is artificial turf safe for my children?
Kids love it! An artificial lawn is absolutely safe for children. Some synthetic products are softer than natural grass, so falling during play doesn’t leave injuries or stain clothing. It produces no pollen, so kids will likely see a reduction in allergies. The infill used is anti-microbial, so it lessens the chances of bacteria spreading to children and pets.
4. Is Synthetic Grass dog-friendly?
Over 85% of our customers are dog owners. This turf is incredibly dog-friendly and is used by many Humane Societies and professional pet boarders/groomers in dog runs. It doesn’t stain and urine drains through it and droppings can be picked up as they would be with regular grass and/or rinsed off with a hose. Best of all, dogs can’t dig through an artificial lawn!
5. How long does it Last?
Most of Texas Turf Co products are designed to last 8-10 years in a sports field application with constant use. Realistically, you should expect our products to last a period of 20+ years in your yard with regular preventive maintenance. You may need to brush it occasionally with a broom or a gentle, plastic rake to keep it looking pristine or we can maintain the turf for you. See the Maintenance Section…
6. How Well Does it Drain?
The products Texas Turf Co uses have a proprietary backing, that drains better than anything else on the market. Coupled with the crushed stone base, it is a superior drainage system for your lawn or pet area.
7. How much does it cost?
The price typically ranges between $8 to $12 per square foot depending on the application. Homeowners find they save money in the long run because they aren’t buying yard maintenance items and/or paying monthly for a lawn/maintenance work.
8. How long does it take to install?
Typically, installation takes one to three days.
9. Will it reduce pests like bugs and small animals?
Yes, this product greatly reduces pests. It covers over compacted ground, which prevents insects from getting to their food source. Small animals, like rabbits, moles and groundhogs, can’t eat it so they go elsewhere. Say goodbye to pesky critters!
10. How hot does an artificial lawn get in the Texas heat?
An artificial lawn can get hot in the summer, depending on the infill used. The grass does not stay as cool as natural grass which has water running through it, but it will not absorb or radiate heat like pavement, rock or brick. It can be cooled down with sprinklers if needed.
11. Is this safe for the environment?
Yes, an artificial lawn is completely safe for the environment. This product is made using environmental-friendly standards and helps conserve water and eliminate the use of pesticides. Texas Turf Co only carries products that meet or exceed minimum standards for research and development, ISO 9001 quality and ISO 14001 environmental as well as STC (Synthetic Turf Council) guidelines.
12. Can it Stain?
We haven’t come across anything that can stain it yet. Even paint can be softened with paint remover and rinsed off. Sticky food spills should be hosed off to prevent them from attracting dirt and bugs.
13. Does it mildew?
Texas Turf Co uses quality synthetic lawn products that are porous, so mildew is highly unlikely. Simple household products remedy many problems.
14. Will weeds ever grow through my artificial lawn?
Weeds are not typical in an artificial lawn. Some may grow around the border occasionally and there may be a sprout inside the infill. A standard weed killer can be used at any time.
15. I thought artificial turf was just for sporting applications, can you put it on residential lawns?
Synthetic turf got its start on professional athletic fields in the 1960’s, but newer products were developed specifically for residences. Homeowners choose this product for a variety of reasons including the consistent beauty of it, less hassle in upkeep, and water conservation, and cost savings. Some Local Governments and Homeowners Associations have regulations regarding synthetic lawns, so be sure to check with local ordinances before installing.
16. Why doesn’t it Fade?
Our products have built-in UV protection that allows it to hold its color even under the most brutal conditions. Independent studies show that quality Artificial Turf will fade at a rate of much less than 1% per year. This means that after ten years in direct sunlight, any color change will be imperceptible to the human eye.
17. Will installing artificial turf help increase my property values?
According to home financial experts, an investment in quality landscaping adds value to your home from 100 percent of your cost up to doubling your investment. The real value is that a low-maintenance lawn is a big factor in a home selling quickly.
18. Does it Come With a Warranty?
Yes, the turf Texas Turf Co uses is backed with some of the best and longest warranties in the business! It covers, fading, discoloration, and problems with materials and workmanship.
19. What Makes One Turf Product Different From Other Artificial Turf Products?
To begin with, not all turf is created equal. The construction standards, quality of the product and its related durability has led to Artificial Turf being the choice for the NFL, Major League Baseball, NCAA Colleges and High School Sports Teams. The primary difference in a few products from the rest of the market is simply the standards by which these products are manufactured. Texas Turf Co only uses the finest products available.
20. Can Texas Turf Co Perform Other Jobs?

Our Standard Synthetic Turf Installation Process
Texas Turf Co follows a ten-step process for installing the Artificial Turf product to ensure that every installation meets or exceeds our highest standard of quality. Our trained, experienced professionals give each installation their focused attention. There are always some nuances with each individual installation, the following guidelines are used for reference.
1. GROUND CLEARING
The first step in the installation process is to clear the ground of any existing lawn or debris. A spade or turf cutter is used to remove existing turf. A clean base is vital to the long-term quality of our installations. For existing lawns, this may include removal of sod, rocks, gravel, etc.
2. BASE HEIGHT
The second step in our installation process is to ensure that the installed turf will be at the desired finish grade for proper drainage. This requires that the initial base be at approximately 2” to 4” below finish grade. Depending on the conditions, any excess soil is removed and discarded, or fill material is brought in at this time.
3. GRAVEL SUB-BASE
Next, 3/8th" down to 1/8th″ crushed drain rock and/or decomposed granite is installed to create a stabilized sub-base. The crushed gravel is brought in and spread to create a base approximately 3” thick depending on application. The gravel sub-base is used to give a solid base for the turf while still allowing for drainage.
Now the small particles of crushed rock is graded to meet drainage requirements. This step allows us to determine the exact finish level of the grass, as well as prevent any areas of water build-up or improper drainage.
5. COMPACTING THE BASE
A plate compactor or roller is brought in to compact the base. Water is sprayed over the gravel prior to tamping to ensure proper compaction and to reduce dust. The goal of this step is to achieve 90% to 95% compaction. The compacted crushed gravel sub-base is then given time to dry and checked for inconsistencies prior to proceeding.
6. Weed Barrier
In order to prevent weeds from growing up through the turf and causing it to buckle or disfigure, we lay a sheet of weed-suppressing membrane over your lawn space, and cut it to shape using a utility knife. Optional - Install a layer of shock-absorbent material. This step is optional, but you may want to consider it to give the grass more cushioning for the little ones. Several pad options are available from ¼” to 3" thickness.
7. Laying The Turf
The Turf rolls are brought in and laid out. The rolls come in 15-foot-wide rolls. Our professional installation team will lay the grass out in a manner that will best fit your lawn. Due to the natural direction of the grass blades, the turf will be laid out in the same direction. Therefore, it is very important that this layout is thoroughly thought out before cutting begins.
8. CUTTING THE GRASS
This phase is where the turf is trimmed to fit your yard. The turf can be cut around your existing landscape whether it is a perfect square, rectangle or a winding path that is bordered by rocks.
9. SECURING AND SEAMING
We secure the turf by staking the edges with 6” galvanized landscape spikes and/or 6” sod staples. The staples are inserted through the turf and into the base at 6” intervals around the edges and more frequently along the seams. Once installed, the seams are virtually invisible and are very durable.
“Infill” is acrylic coated sand with antimicrobial properties and Zeofill (in pet applications). Both infill products are spread in between the blades of the artificial grass to allow the blades to stand up and help cushion the turf, improve durability in traffic zones, and emulate the look and feel of natural grass.
