Why SP Turf®? |
SP Turf® artificial grass, is the eco-friendly alternative
to a traditional grass lawn and putting greens. Also called synthetic grass or
artificial turf, this type of product has its roots in professional sports, where
low maintenance and everlasting green beauty is essential. Our SP Turf®
looks and feels as good as the real thing, without the costly and work-intensive upkeep.
Ideal for families and pet owners, SP Turf® does not absorb animal waste or other external
elements. So while your neighbors are battling to keep their lawns looking good, your
artificial grass turf will be naturally and effortlessly pristine!
Note: It is recommended to routinely use pet friendly, cleaning products to alleviate odors on your SP Turf. Veterinarians and pet supply stores sell enzymes that break down particularly potent pet messes (check to ensure products are non-toxic, pet friendly and biodegradable).
Why choose synthetic turf for my lawn?
It is perfectly okay to have synthetic turf questions. We are here to tell you that an artificial turf lawn, done right, will give you healthy looking, green grass without the costly and tiresome maintenance of landscaping upkeep. So say goodbye to water, mowing, fading, edging, fertilizing, chemicals, pet damage***, pests, allergies and muddy paw prints… not to mention, it’s eco-friendly, helping you save on water.
What is SP Turf®, exactly?
SP Turf® is a blend of polyethylene monofilament and thatch and acrylic coated anti-microbial silica sand for the infill. SP Turf® will provide years of grass-like appearance and use, without the regular maintenance of natural grass. The installation process includes a layer of compacted road base (just like our pavers), our polyethylene monofilament and thatch blades and our silica sand infill system. And, because the installation process if virtually identical to the paver installation system, your turf and pavers can be installed in the same job.
Can I get a rebate on my water bill for having synthetic turf?
Check with your water district for more information, but most Sothern California residents are eligible for water rebates if they have synthetic turf installed.
What makes SP Turf different than other synthetic turfs?
Unlike many other synthetic turf products, SP Turf® offers the highest quality and safest product on the market. Not only is our turf lead free, but our infill system is made of top grade, anti-microbial silica sand that prevents bacteria and germs from incubating in your lawn. While other turf products use a combination of rubber and sand infill that can harbor dangerous bacteria. Additionally, we offer one of the best warranties in the industry, guaranteed for 10 years.
There are several companies selling synthetic turf. Why should I choose SP Turf®?
SP Turf® is one of the best and safest turf products on the market and offers a 10 year warranty. We ensure that you get the same quality of product and service with our turf as you do with our pavers. We are also one of the few turf companies that can offer you a complete outdoor living system of both hardscape products and turf, so you can use System Pavers as your one-stop shop!
Is it dog friendly?
Put it this way…now you can have a dog AND a lawn! Liquids drain right through while droppings can be picked up as they would be with regular grass and/or washed off with a hose. Plus, dogs can’t dig through the turf, meaning those muddy paw prints on your patio and carpeting will be a thing of the past!
What is the square footage price of SP Turf®?
Our custom installed product cannot realistically be quoted by the square foot. Each lawn is different and SP Turf® prices each project individually based on turf type, required ground preparation, size, and numerous other factors. That is why System Pavers is happy to offer a FREE Design Consultation to provide exact pricing for your landscaping project.
What about my kids playing on SP Turf®?
Kids love it! SP Turf® is softer and safer than real grass and they have loads of fun playing on it. Parents love the fact that there are no more stained pants, scraped knees or grass allergies. And, because our infill is made of anti-microbial acrylic coated sand and not ground rubber, like other turf products, it is more resistant to heat absorption than our competitor’s turf.
How well does it drain?
Better than real grass! Our lawns have specially designed drainage holes placed consistently throughout the turf to ensure water sheds quickly and efficiently and does not pool on the surface.
How long does it last?
This is a great artificial grass question. Since turf of this quality is an emerging technology, we frankly do not know the exact answer. SP TURF® is expected to have a 20-30 year life expectancy. Confident in our product, the 10-year warranty guarantees it won't fade or fall apart, and it will look great for years to come!
Is it important to work with a company that has a 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. SP Turf® is licensed and bonded. Our California Contractor’s License number is 661575, Washington’s License number is SYSTEPW908KF, and Oregon’s License number is CCB 168710. You can check on any Contractor's license status at www.cslb.ca.gov.
What about Gophers, Rabbits and Bugs?
Say goodbye to pesky critters! SP Turf® 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 doesn't it fade?
SP Turf® has a built-in UV protection solution that will allow it to hold its color even under the most dramatic conditions.
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, a leaf blower is the ideal tool for general upkeep. A stiff, natural bristle broom can be used to "fluff" high traffic areas.
Does System Pavers offer financing on SP Turf®?
System Pavers offers a variety of financing options to fit your budget including a deferred payment plan! Click here to see financing options.
What about the warranty?
System Pavers offers a 10-year warranty from the date of completed installation against defects in materials, including ultra-violet degradation and excessive fading.
Does it mildew?
Due to its extremely porous design, mold and mildew are never a problem.
Will weeds grow through it?
Weeds cannot grow through the tough turf backing. On rare occasions, you may see some popping up along a border. No worries…simply spray some Round-Up™ on them and they’re history!
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. For a better idea, call for a FREE Design Consultation today!
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.
Will the sand infill harm my children or pets?
Our infill is non-toxic and anti-microbial and will in no way harm either children or pets***, if swallowed. Our infill is one of the only products that will prevent bacteria and germs from incubating in your turf. Note: It is recommended to routinely use pet friendly, cleaning products to alleviate odors on your SP Turf®. Veterinarians and pet supply stores sell enzymes that break down particularly potent pet messes (check to ensure products are non-toxic, pet friendly and bio-degradable)
Will the turf catch fire?
Not a chance…the turf is fire-retardant and anti-flammable. It’s the ideal landscaping choice for any homeowner living in a drought area that could be susceptible to brush fire activity.
