We have been in business in the Livermore Valley for 20 years. I have lived here most of my life. We are full-service landscape company offering services from artificial grass, lighting, all types of hardscape, wood work, irrigation and drainage.
People ask if the is grass hot when its warm outside. Yes, it is little warm when the temperature gets above 80 degrees. Is there any maintenance on the grass? The only maintenance is just blowing off any leaves on it. Will my dog ruin the grass when going to the bathroom on it? No the dog won't ruin the grass. Just clean up the dog's mess and hose the grass down once in a while.
Having artificial grass will not need water like sod lawns. Artificial grass has very low maintenance, just blowing off leaves compared to sod lawns which need mowing, edging, spraying for weeds and fertilizing.
Artificial grass has a thick plastic base with thin plastic blades of green and brown grass blades. There are holes spaced evenly in the bottom base so water can drain through it. There are different grades of grass. It is measured in ounces per square foot. The higher the ounce per square foot the better the quality of the grass. A good quality grass would be from 80 to 100 ounces per square foot.
The lifespan of the grass is 25 to 30 years. Most manufactures will warranty the grass for 10 to 12 years from fading and material break down.
When you hire someone to do you grass make sure they have a contractor's license and ask to look at a job they have just finished. Ask to see samples of the grass they plan on installing.
