From start to finish, our team at Arizona Turf Depot walks you through the process of selecting the best synthetic turf product for your project. Whether you’re a do-it-yourself homeowner, or a landscaping business providing services to your clients, we’ve got the tools you need to succeed.
The first step in the process is to evaluate where the turf will go and how it will be used. For homes, artificial grass can be the main component of a yard, or an accent placed alongside pools, patios, or garden areas. Commercial businesses, including restaurants, childcare facilities, and office complexes may use artificial turf on rooftops, indoor atriums, or in their outdoor landscaping plans.
How the turf will be used is key to determining which AZ Turf Depot product will provide the best solution for your project. Turf is designed for specific uses including pet areas, play areas for children, putting greens, heavy foot traffic areas, sports fields, backyards, general landscaping, and aesthetics.
Choosing a turf texture
Over the years, the quality and texture of synthetic grass has evolved with shapes and shades of blades mimicking the variants seen in nature. Most turf fibers are made from similar materials, polypropylene or polyethylene, that provide substantial endurance to keep your turf looking good for many years.
For Arizonans, many of our turfs are made to look like the natural grasses that grow in our hot desert environment. We offer an Arizona blend in two weights, a Bermuda grass turf, fescue, and others that do well in our extremely hot summer months, and in our milder winter, fall, and spring seasons.
Specialty turfs are also available designed for pets and putting greens. Artificial turf makes it easy for pet owners to clean up by behind their pets, and then hose off the area with a garden hose. Backyard putting greens are perfect for the golfer who wants to practice his short game.
Choosing a turf infill
After deciding how your turf will be used and what style will work for your project, the next step is choosing an infill. This is the material that get gets spread on top for stability; it’s the material that keeps the blades standing upright, the way soil does. At Arizona Turf Depots, we have infills designed to improve drainage, to improve pet safety, to create the feel of natural ground and more. We will work with you to determine the benefits of each type of artificial turf infill to ensure the best finished project.
