Frequently Asked Questions
How long are your rolls of turf?
Our rolls of artificial grass are typically 15 ft x 100 ft.
How many pounds of infill do you need per square foot of grass?
Infill is the materials spread over the artificial turf during installation to keep blades standing tall, protect your lawn and help longevity. This will depend on the type of turf you’re installing. The pile height, texture, size of the area, and density all factors to consider when determining how much infill is needed. As you can see the proper amount of infill is completely dependent on your application. For most residential landscape applications, the safe bet is between 2.5 and 3.0 lbs. of 12/20 infill per square foot. If you’re going to have dog & pets around your new artificial grass installation then you might want to lean towards 3-pounds per square foot. We understand that this can be confusing, don’t worry, we are here to help! Contact us directly at 201-994-4968.
What type of base material do you recommend?
Recommended materials can vary significantly from climate to climate. For example, if you live in an area with heavy rain you’ll want a different material for better drainage. Wet and cold climates will require different materials from hot and dry climate. For do-it-yourself installation projects, we recommend you to contact us directly so we can guide you through what material would be best.
Is there a limit to the area size when it comes to installing artificial turf?
There is not a limit to the installation area size. However, for installations over 100 sq.ft. we strongly recommend a Certified Installation Professional. Large installations can be very labor-intensive and are not recommended for everyone.
Does the artificial grass get too hot for pet paws?
Artificial grass can get hot during the hottest times of the day. Our pet turf is designed to reduce surface temperatures by dissipating the heat build-up and reducing fiber emissivity by as much as 20% cooler than similar artificial turf products. If you live in a warmer area, contact us so we can help you explore your options.
Will artificial grass fade in the sun?
Our artificial grass has built-in UV inhibitors to ensure the rays of the sun will not negatively affect the turf.
Will weeds ever grow through my artificial lawn?
Weeds are not typical in an artificial lawn. Some may grow around the border and there may be a sprout inside the infill. A standard weed killer can be used.
Will installing artificial turf help increase my property values?
According to home financial experts, an investment in quality landscaping adds value to your home from 100 percent of your cost up to doubling your investment. The real value is that a low-maintenance lawn is a factor in a home selling quickly. Learn more about how artificial grass can increase your property value.
How do you clean artificial turf?
One of the most appealing features of artificial turf is that it does not require a lot of care and maintenance. Artificial lawns are low maintenance, not no maintenance. The amount of maintenance required depends on your specific situation. If you have pets and/or children or are surrounded by trees or live in a dusty area, your landscape might require a little more cleanup effort. If you have a landscape that does not experience much foot traffic, maintenance will be a faster process! Read our easy guide to caring for your artificial turf.
How long does artificial turf last?
The average is 10 to 15 years, but a high-quality artificial product can last up to 20 years.
Does artificial turf come with a warranty?
Artificial Turf Factory Outlet warrants our synthetic turf for fifteen (15) years from the date of synthetic turf installation when it is installed and maintained as recommended by the turf manufacturer. Get more information on our 15 year warranty.
