Artificial Turf Basics: Common Questions

First, Watersavers Turf is lead-free and non-toxic. It’s safe for everyone. Second, it lasts for a long time. Sometimes over twenty years! Importantly, think about the savings on your water bill. Also, there’s no need to buy fertilizer. Additionally, we offer an 18 year residential warranty and a 10 year commercial warranty against UV and turf defects.

We have options including emerald green, spring green, lime green, and more. Another artificial turf basics fact: synthetic grass drains almost 30 gallons per square yard per minute. That’s way more than natural grass.

Watersavers Turf Installation Basics

It is important to know some installation basics. Contractors find it helpful and so do homeowners. Understanding how turf is installed goes a long way. First, when done correctly, turf will last for a long time. Second, picking the right material for your project ensures a quality surface. You can learn all the details in our artificial turf installation guideDid you know that it takes about 24 hours for the seaming glue to dry? If it doesn’t dry, the seam won’t stay. This means a poor surface. Also, keep in mind to avoid installation in cold weather or close to windows, too. A good rule of thumb is to install turf at least 20 feet away from windows.
