It is very important to take into consideration the different requirement and needs for each unique artificial turf installation. Your clients all live in different areas, experience different climates and have different lifestyles.  It is essential to consider the activity and specific area(s) before choosing any product.

  • What is the general type of usage your turf will need to endure?
    • Aesthetic, entertainment, pet, playgrounds
  • Will there be a lot of foot traffic? Light, Moderate or Heavy?
    • Based on their response, you can recommend what face weights, pile heights and blade shapes would work best!
  • Do you own pets or have kids?
    • Assure them that ALL of our products are non-toxic, lead-free & kid and pet-friendly!
  • What is your surrounding environment like?
    • This will be important in differentiating between a Fescue or Spring product.

Put your clients first and make sure you adhere to each and every need they have! As a  professional installer and an ambassador of artificial turf, it is important to educate homeowners and give the best information possible.

Say Goodbye To Those Pesky Allergies!

There are approximately 50 million Americans that suffer from allergies. Grass allergy happens to be one of the most common of pollen allergies, making it difficult for those affected to simply enjoy the comfort of their own yards. Artificial grass is a great option for those who suffer from grass allergies but want to enjoy the aesthetically appeal of a perfectly manicured lawn.  

The main cause of grass allergies is pollen from the grass itself. Artificial turf does not hold onto pollen as much as these natural grasses do, thus reducing exposure and triggers for allergies! Lawn mowing is also a large trigger for releasing pollen into the yard and air. Since artificial turf does not require mowing whatsoever, this can further reduce the emission of pollen in your yard.

Modern technology has made the artificial grass of today look and feel like natural grass. Created by man-made materials, synthetic grass’ composition is much different than that of real grass. Synthetic grass’ uniform pile height stays short, manicured, and maintained. With this, excess growth that naturally traps dust, pollen, and allergy-causing debris is of minimal concern. Water can also help to reduce pollen counts. With its modern drainage system, synthetic turf can be wet to reduce pollen while manually draining water itself. The perforated backing allows water to seep through easily, making sure spores and bacteria do not grow in the surface of the grass.

Humans are not the only living creatures that suffer from pollen allergies.There are also many dogs that develop grass allergies from spending time outdoors or playing in the yard.  For dogs with grass allergies, artificial grass proves to be the ideal yard and playing surface that will greatly reduce allergies and symptoms in comparison to natural grass. Other aspects of artificial turf make it pet-friendly, including the fact that it withstands pet urine and can easily be cleaned when it comes into contact with other pet waste. With its strong durability, it does not tear apart easily with rough play and digging.

Look to synthetic grass as the solution for members of your family who suffer from irritable grass allergies—whether it be your child or even your dog. Eliminate grass allergy symptoms by converting to a synthetic grass lawn!

The Importance of Trust

Anyone who works with a client understands the importance of customer service.

Many installers don’t have a million dollar marketing budget. Many of their jobs come from word of mouth. Trust is a major asset to any installer, which is why it is important to keep the lines of communication open between you and your customer. Disregarding this idea not only harms your reputation but that of others in the industry.

Trust starts from the moment you take the call up until the job is finished.

Making the decision to go with artificial grass shouldn’t be taken lightly. It is a financial investment – for you and your customers. There are many ways to secure a positive relationship between you and your customers and one of them is showcasing your knowledge on your product, installation and honest communication.

Upon arrival, every installer should have a checklist to go through before starting the job. It’s important to be aware of your surroundings to make sure nothing will obstruct the quality of the product and installation. This not only protects the consumer, but this protects your company and crew. Does the house have any double pane windows? These windows can melt the turf  and it should be recommended that the homeowner has them tinted before installation starts.

Sometimes there are hazards that are difficult to see with the naked eye. Always ask the homeowner if there are any wires or pipes that they are aware of. This can obstruct the household and create problems with the installation. Nut grass can eventually grow through the turf and extra precautions must be taken before turf is installed.

These are just a few things to watch out for before starting any job. As an installer, it is your job make the customer aware of any possible issues before the installation so that you both can walk away with complete satisfaction.
