Why Choose a Synthetic Grass Lawn?
Synthetic grass, done correctly, can provide you with a beautiful lawn without the hassle and expense of trying to maintain a problem-plagued natural lawn. Quality synthetic turf has become a proven landscaping alternative to natural lawns. You eliminate watering, mowing, fertilizing and chemicals. There is no more pet damage, re-seeding, pests, allergies and muddy paw prints…all for a lower overall cost!

What is FieldTurf, exactly?
FieldTurf is a blend of polyethylene and polypropylene, silica sand and rubber granules that will give years of grass-like appearance and use, without the regular maintenance of natural grass. The installation process includes a layer of base material, our patented polyethylene and polypropylene blades and our rubber granule infill system. This simple installation will provide the safest, most effective surface. It is resistant to temperature extremes, drains quickly (better than real grass) and is extremely low-maintenance.
What makes FieldTurf different than other synthetic turfs?
FieldTurf is THE Professional Grade synthetic turf and is used by the National Football League, Major League Baseball, NCAA colleges and high school sports teams across the country for their playing surfaces.
These organizations have done the research on the best turf for their stringent requirements and they have selected FieldTurf for their playing surface. If it is good enough for them, don’t you think that it would be good enough for your landscape needs?
There are several companies selling synthetic turf. Why should I choose Heavenly Greens?
This is our favorite question! Simply put, FieldTurf is the best product on the market and is the closest alternative to natural grass. A superior product, coupled with professional service, makes Heavenly Greens the ONLY synthetic turf choice for your home or business.
There are various newcomers in the synthetic lawn market. None offer the level of quality and service that Heavenly Greens provides. If you are considering a lesser product, please be certain that you are dealing with a reputable firm that has trained installers, a California Contractor’s License, is insured and bonded. Make sure that you check references and visit installations for signs of durability and quality. Avoid the pain of a lawn that does not live up to your expectations. As with everything else in life, you get what you pay for!
Is it dog friendly?
Put it this way…now you can have a dog AND a lawn! With over 80% of our customers being dog owners and installations in such places as the Humane Society, and many other pet care facilities, Heavenly Greens is the proven perfect solution for your yard if you have pets.
Liquids drain right through, droppings can be picked up as they would be with regular grass and/or washed off with a hose, and dogs can’t dig through it. Muddy paw tracks on your carpet will be a thing of the past!
What is the square footage price of Heavenly Greens?
Our custom installed product cannot realistically be quoted by the square foot. Each lawn is different and Heavenly Greens prices each project individually based on turf type, required ground preparation, size, and numerous other factors.
Any turf company that randomly provides a square footage price over the phone or on the Internet is simply selling outdoor carpet, and not selling the same custom installed projects that we are well known for. In addition, other turf companies frequently charge for the entire amount of turf that will be brought to the job site, including waste, whereas Heavenly Greens only charges for the actual square footage to be installed. Simply receiving a square footage price without a site visit is not a realistic or credible estimate of the true cost.
That is why Heavenly Greens is happy to offer a FREE Design Consultation to provide exact pricing for your commercial or residential landscaping project.
What about my kids playing on FieldTurf?
Kids love it! FieldTurf is softer and safer than real grass and they have loads of fun playing on it. Some consider it their own personal sports field! Parents love the fact that there are no more stained pants, scraped knees or grass allergies.
Fieldturf is the turf-of-choice of hundreds of daycare centers around the nation…many of them are right here in Northern California.
How tough is it really?
Simple answer…consider the fact that FieldTurf is being used by the NFL as their playing surface. These guys are going to be more brutal than your kids, pets and friends combined!
How well does it drain?
Four words…better than real grass! FieldTurf’s patented installation process provides five inches of product being installed that drains 40-60 inches per hour. Now with MaxxFlow the drainage is even better.
How long does it last?
FieldTurf is expected to have a 20-25 year life expectancy. Our warranty guarantees that it won’t fade or fall apart, and that it will look great for years to come!
Is it important to work with a company that has a California Contractor’s license?
When you contract to have work performed in your home, remember that to do any project that totals over $500, a company must have a valid Contractor’s License. They are required to include this number on any materials they use to market their work, on their contracts, etc.
By using a licensed contractor, you are assured that they are covered by the necessary bonding, insurance and worker’s compensation to protect you, the homeowner. Without a license, you become liable.
Heavenly Greens is licensed and bonded. Our California Contractor’s License number is 923094. You can check on a Contractor’s license status at www.cslb.ca.gov.
What about Gophers? Rabbits? Bugs?
Say goodbye to pesky critters! Heavenly Greens will eliminate any troubles you have with rabbits and gophers. Rabbits will no longer ruin your lawn by eating your grass and gophers cannot come up through the turf! Your new lawn will be safer because you will no longer have a need for pesticides. Bugs and insects are history!
Why does Heavenly Greens Use Black Rubber Infill?
Heavenly Greens utilizes a combination of silica sand and crumb rubber infill for our installations because this method provides a comfortable feel underfoot and is the most effective means known to keep the synthetic blades upright. In many ways, it functions as a synthetic dirt.
Other turf companies claim rubber infill is toxic or hazardous. This is a falsehood. Test after test has verified that rubber infill is completely safe and harmless. They make these claims because they employ different infill systems or none at all. The result is turf that mats down with even a small amount of foot traffic.
FieldTurf synthetic grass remains the turf-of-choice for thousands of athletic teams and homeowners and has proven to be the highest quality turf installation available anywhere.
Why doesn’t it fade?
FieldTurf has a built-in UV protection solution that will allow it to hold its color even under the most dramatic conditions. Independent studies show that FieldTurf will fade at a rate of less than 1% per year. This means that after ten years in direct sunlight, any color change will still be imperceptible to the human eye.
What kind of maintenance does it require?
More a matter of keeping clean than maintaining…remove organic materials from the surface, typically by using a leaf blower. Rakes may be required for removing heavier objects; however, the leaf blower is the ideal tool for general upkeep. A stiff, natural bristle broom can be used to “fluff” high traffic areas.
Does Heavenly Greens offer financing?
Heavenly Greens offers a variety of financing options to fit your budget including a deferred payment plan!
What about the warranty?
Heavenly Greens offers the longest and most protective warranty in the business, and covers fading, discoloration, and problems with materials and workmanship.
Does it mildew?
Due to its extremely porous design, mold and mildew are never a problem.
Will weeds grow through it?
On some occasions, you may see some popping up along a border, or under the right conditions, weeds have been known to sprout from the top of the turf (inside the sand & rubber infill) which appear to be growing up from the bottom. Both situations can be treated with common weed killers such as Round-Up™ or any other weed deterrent you prefer as these chemicals will not damage the turf.
How long does it take to install?
An average landscaping area might take two to three days. Each installation is customized, so it is sometimes hard to determine this without a site visit.
How much does it cost?
Heavenly Greens is not cheap…the best never is! Think of it as an asset and an investment that will increase the value of your property. Best of all, unlike most expenses you put into your home, Heavenly Greens will pay for itself over a matter of a few years. For instance, if you spend $200 per month on landscaping and water costs, that equates to $2,400 a year. Over five years, your cost is $12,000. The average Heavenly Greens lawn is less expensive than that in the long run!
How does it affect my property value?
Done correctly, 100% to 200% of any investment in quality landscaping will go directly toward the value of your home, according to GE Finance. This does not include the curb appeal which is immeasurable.
Several of our customers have sold their homes and reported that their Heavenly Greens lawn helped tremendously with the sale of their home. Potential buyers were very excited about the prospect of purchasing a home with a beautiful lawn that required no water or maintenance.
Can it stain?
We haven’t come across anything that can stain it yet. Sticky spills should be hosed off to prevent them from attracting dirt and bugs. Even paint can be softened with paint remover and then rinsed off.
How hot does it get?
The grass does not stay as cool as natural grass which has water running through it, but it does not absorb and radiate heat like pavement, rock or brick. Even through summer heat, your lawn will remain pleasantly functional. On those days that are exceedingly warm, simply hose off your lawn to cool it down.
Will the sand and rubber infill harm my children or pets?
Our infill is non-toxic and will in no way harm either children or pets if swallowed. We could not have installed Heavenly Greens in the many day care centers and pet facilities, including SPCA and the Humane Society, if there was any concern about toxicity.
Will the turf catch fire?
No. However, the turf is not fire-retardant, but does not have a flash point, it simply melts. In fact, FieldTurf stood up to the challenge of the recent fires in Southern California suffering only minor damage from the heat and embers.
