At North Texas Luxury Lawns, we understand that choosing the right turf solution for your property is a significant decision. Our commitment is to provide you with the highest quality turf installations tailored to the unique climate and demands of North Texas. To help you make an informed choice, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions about our turf installation process.

Frequently Asked Questions About Turf

Turf installation offers numerous benefits for North Texas homeowners. Not only does it provide a lush, green, and maintenance-free lawn year-round, but it also conserves water, reduces the need for pesticides and fertilizers, and stands up to the region’s hot and sometimes unpredictable weather.

The duration of the installation process can vary based on the size and complexity of the project. On average, a typical residential lawn can be completed in 1-3 days. We’ll provide a more accurate timeline during our initial consultation.

Our turf products are designed with efficient drainage in mind. The backing material has perforations that allow water to drain through at a rate much faster than natural grass. This ensures that your lawn remains puddle-free even after heavy North Texas rainstorms.

Absolutely! Our turf products are non-toxic and safe for both pets and children. Additionally, they are resistant to digging and scratching, making them a durable choice for households with active pets.

Saves Water: The United Nation’s 2003 World Water Development Report showed that over the next 20 years the quantity of water available to people will decrease by 30%. We need to protect and conserve this precious resource – especially in the desert southwest. Roughly 7.8 billion gallons of water are used every day for outdoor use and most of this goes to lawn and landscape watering.

Reduces Contaminants: Real lawns require pesticides and fertilizers to keep them green and healthy. 70 million pounds of pesticides are applied to home lawns, trees, and shrubs every year; polluting groundwater and sending phosphates and nitrates into our lakes and streams. A recent United States Geological Survey study of surface and groundwater found low levels of pesticides in at least half of the wells tested.

Reduces Pollution: Roughly 54 million people mow their lawns each week in the summer, a process that uses 800 million gallons of gas every year. More than 5% of urban air pollution is the result of gas-powered lawn mowers.

With proper care and maintenance, you can expect your North Texas Luxury Lawn turf to last 15-20 years. Our products are designed to withstand the harsh Texas sun, foot traffic, and other environmental factors.

One of the main advantages of artificial turf is its low maintenance. Generally, you’ll need to remove debris like leaves or twigs, rinse off any spills or pet waste, and occasionally brush the fibers to keep them standing upright. No mowing, watering, or fertilizing required!

In an effort to encourage water conservation, some North Texas cities are offering programs and incentives for installing synthetic grass. Please check with your city to find out if a rebate is available.

Yes, you can. Before installation, we’ll work with you to cap off or move any sprinkler heads. If you wish to retain some parts of your irrigation system for surrounding plant beds or other landscape features, we can accommodate that as well.

Artificial turf is designed to be pet-friendly. Solid waste can be picked up as you would on natural grass, and liquid waste drains through the turf’s perforated backing. For best hygiene, it’s recommended to rinse the area with water after cleaning up.

While the turf itself doesn’t absorb or retain the urine smell, residue can sometimes be left behind. Regular rinsing with water helps prevent any lingering odors. Additionally, there are turf deodorizers available that can be applied to neutralize any potential smells. Here are some recommended cleaning solutions:

  • Odormure®
  • Simple Solution
  • Simple Green
  • OdorBan®
  • Nature’s Miracle®
  • Simple Solution™
  • Kids & Pets®
  • PE51/Zeofill
  • Turf Renu
  • Wysiwash
  • Undiluted distilled white vinegar (5%)
  • 5-10% bleach solution
  • Any alcohol-free, biodegradable solution

The cost of turf installation varies based on several factors, including the size of the area, the type of turf selected, site preparation needs, and any additional features or customizations. We provide customized quotes for each project to ensure you get the best value for your specific needs.
