Artificial Turf FAQs

The most frequently asked questions related to artificial turf and our installation services:

GENERAL ARTIFICIAL TURF QUESTIONS

How long a artificial turf installation usually take?

 
When it comes to installing synthetic grass for your specific project, a number of factors can contribute to how long it will take to install your artificial turf.
 

Time of the Project

First, the time of your artificial turf installation can vary from 1 to 3 days depending on:
  • Square footage of the project
  • Removal of Materials
  • Special Work
 
A general rule of thumb we have here at US Turf is the larger the project, the longer it’ll take for your artificial turf installation. For example, if your project is 300 square feet, we can install it in one day. But, if your project is football field size, then it could take up to 3 days to install. The good news is that you don’t need to be home while we install your synthetic grass.
 
If you’re looking to replace your real grass or concrete walkway for artificial turf, it will take a couple of days for the removal of all that material for us to install your synthetic grass. Lastly, some projects require curved edges to match your backyard landscape. This won’t prolong your artificial turf installation too much but it does require a little more time as opposed to installing square-edged synthetic grass. Sometimes, we have to install additional materials like aluminum edging or brickwork to create a specific curve.
 

Putting Green

Next, installing a putting green is a little more complicated than your standard artificial turf installation. A putting green requires installing a curved fringe and putting cups which takes extra time and preparation.
 

Accessibility to the Project

Lastly, if access to your artificial turf installation is fairly straightforward, then there shouldn’t be any extra time added to your project. However, if we are installing artificial turf on a rooftop balcony and having to go up and downstairs, your synthetic grass installation could easily take an extra day. 

How much does artificial turf installation cost?

The price of our turf installation varies depending on the size of area, the location, and the type you choose to buy. We try to keep our prices low without sacrificing quality. The best way to get an accurate price is to contact us directly for a free quote.

Is synthetic grass safe?

Many people are worried about the different materials used when installing synthetic turf. Our turf is environmentally friendly and made with safety in mind. From playgrounds to pets, we trust the materials we choose.

Does it fade?

All of our synthetic turf products are UV coated, which prevents discoloration of your turf.

Does the turf get hot?

The turf will get hot, especially on warm summer days. Luckily, we offer T°Cool™, a turf antimicrobial solution that works by absorbing the heat and keeping the turf fresh. All you have to do is spray the turf down with a hose and it will stay cool for up to 5 days.

Is synthetic turf maintenance free?

Synthetic turf requires very little maintenance compared to natural grass. Every turf product will have different care instructions depending on the material and type.

How long does the turf last?

Synthetic turf has a lifespan of up to 15 years. However, this all depends on the way you care for the turf. With enough care, our turf materials can last for up to 20 years, which saves you both time and money.

Where exactly is the turf made?

All of our turf products are made right here in the USA!

Do you guys recycle?

US Turf is 100% recyclable, having a lower impact on local landfills and reducing our overall carbon footprint.

How do I remove leaves and debris from my US Turf lawn?

A leaf blower, rake, or garden hose should easily take care of any debris you want removed from your artificial turf.

PET TURF QUESTIONS

Is turf pet-friendly?

Absolutely. Our artificial turf products are specifically designed for dogs and other types of pets. It is sanitary and easy to clean.

How do I maintain my pet grass?

When it comes to pets waste, we recommend you always allowing the solid waste to dry before picking up and disposing of. Following up the disposal, treat the area with a liquid enzyme cleaner. Lastly, use a deodorizing infill to help keep odors at a minimum.
