What You Need To Know Before Installing Artificial Turf


What You Need To Know Before Installing Artificial Turf http://www.heavenlygreens.com/blog/what-you-need-to-know-before-installing-artificial-turf @heavenlygreensYou’ve finally decided to make the switch to artificial turf. You already know it is a great investment. But there are still a few things you need to know and consider before installing your faux grass.




The lay of the land

Great news! Artificial grass can be planted in areas where natural grass won’t grow or cannot be mowed. That includes deep shade, slopes, and weirdly shaped spaces. Size doesn’t matter, either. You can create a luxurious expanse or install a teeny, tiny lawn. 

The purpose

How you plan to use your artificial turf determines which product you’ll want to install. Fake grass is ideal for landscaping, public “green” spaces, commercial property, kids’ play areas, dog play areas, sports fields, backyard living spaces, balconies, rooftops, decks, pool surrounds, patios, walkways, putting greens, and bocce courts. Faux grass comes in a myriad styles, and not only for specific purposes. It comes in different shades of green and different blade shapes.   

Don’t forget to design a space to relax, because you’ll finally have time to do that. Not sure exactly what design you want? We understand! Our gallery of recent installations is a great starting place, whether you’re considering artificial grass for your yard, dog, general outdoor living, or a backyard putting green. 

We also encourage you to download one or more of our handy, informative artificial turf guides. You can get the scoop on design, compare the many types of top-grade artificial turf Heavenly Greens carries, and find answers to your questions – including some you never thought to ask! 


Artificial turf can vary considerably in quality. Durability and longevity are critical to make the most of your investment, both financially and in terms of livability. Only superior products come with superior warranties, so it’s important to read the fine print. That way you’ll know what you’re getting. 


Artificial grass pays for itself in surprisingly few years. But you still have to pay for it up front. Here at Heavenly Greens we take checks and credit cards (cash, too), but we know you may want more time to pay. We can link you with three different financing programs that can spread your payments from 18 months to 12 years.  


It is thrilling to know you are getting rid of the endless expense and hassle of traditional lawn maintenance. Nonetheless, even artificial turf require a little care. It’s really easy, though. Our maintenance guide reveals all. 

The whole enchilada

The warranty isn’t the only thing you should consider when installing artificial turf. Who are you buying from? A good product purchased from the wrong company won’t bring you the results you want. Time in business and reputation directly indicate experience and quality of workmanship. You want the total package, so read the reviews, check out the references, etc. 

And ask who will do the work. Because when you come right down to it, the quality of your artificial turf installation depends on the people as much as the product you purchase. Top-quality installation starts well below the surface, providing a multi-layer foundation that ensures excellent drainage, lasting stability, and that smooth grassy appearance you’ll be proud to admire for years to come. 

It takes extensive training and experience to do the job right, the first time. Our Heavenly Greens installation pros know what to look for and what to do, no matter what your property’s circumstances. They are our own staff members, not outside contractors, because at Heavenly Greens we believe installation is a key ingredient in the whole enchilada. That’s really all you need to know.
