The answer is simple, Artificial Grass!
Creative Turf uses the highest quality artificial grass, manufactured right here in the U.S. Our products are 100% lead free, unlike those sold by many other companies. There is virtually no maintenance with artificial grass, you can have the look and feel of real grass without all the associated expenses and headaches. Your grass may need an occasional cleaning, consisting of brooming, or simply blowing leaves and debris off. However, your days of yard work can come to an end.
Our grass is made of polyethylene, the most common plastic and/or polypropylene, a thermoplastic polymer used in every day plastics, safe for kids, the environment and is also pet friendly. All of our artificial grass has a UV protection coating to withstand the harsh desert sun against fading and now there is even an artificial grass with built in heat block technology. This is great for the desert! Creative Turf’s artificial grass suppliers offer a limited fifteen year warranty, however, with proper care, your artificial grass should provide you with 15-25 years of enjoyment.

The Installation Process
Depending on what type of landscape is in place, the grass, rock or dirt is excavated approximately 3-4″ below grade and hauled from the site. All irrigation heads are capped off at the pipe. Artificial grass generally comes in 15′ widths, part of the early process is to determine exactly how much grass is needed, laying the grass ensuring that the blades all go in the same direction and minimizing waste.
The base material is graded to the desired contour and compacted with a vibrating plate compactor. The surface is watered and compacted several times until it is very firm.
After laying a weed block material, the artificial grass is measured, cut and fitted to specific areas.
The final step involves installing the infill and power brushing the turf. Depending on the weight of the installed turf, approximately 1-2 lbs of sand per sq. ft. is installed within the turf. We lay this in an even layer with a drop spreader and the sand serves several purposes. Even though the turf is streched and nailed in place, the sand provides weight to ensure there is no wrinkling in the expansion and contraction with temperature changes. The sand also protects the backing from the Sun and helps the fibers remain upright. For pet applications, Zeofill, a pet deodorizer can be substituted for the Silica sand.
