Frequently Asked Questions

Our customer have a lot of questions… We've got all the answers!

Why go with synthetic turf for your lawn?

Synthetic turf, done right, can give you back your beautiful lawn without the hassle. No watering, no mowing, no fading, no edging, no fertilizing, no chemicals, no pet damage, no pests, no allergies and no muddy paw prints…and a lower overall cost too!

What is CleanTurf exactly?

CleanTurf is a blend of polyethylene and nylon thatch and silica coated sand or rubber granules that will give years of grass-like appearance and use, without the regular maintenance of natural grass. The installation process includes a layer of decomposed granite, our patented polyethylene and lead free nylon thatch blades and our rubber granule infill system. This simple installation will provide the safest, most effective surface. It is resistant to temperature extremes, drains quickly (better than real grass) and is extremely low-maintenance!

What makes CleanTurf different than other synthetic turfs?

CleanTurf is the Professional Grade synthetic turf company and its product line is used by thousands of homes, businesses and fields across the country.

Our customers have done the research on the best turf for their stringent requirements and they have selected CleanTurf as there solution. If it is good enough for them, don't you think that it would be good enough for your landscape needs?

There are several companies selling synthetic turf. Why should I choose CleanTurf?

This is our favorite question! Simply put, CleanTurf is the best product on the market and is the closest alternative to natural grass. A superior product, coupled with professional service, makes CleanTurf the ONLY synthetic turf choice for your home or business.

There are various newcomers in the synthetic lawn market. Not one offers the level of quality and service that CleanTurf provides. If you are considering a lesser product, please be certain that you are dealing with a reputable firm that has trained installers, a California Contractors License and is insured and bonded. Avoid the pain of a lawn that does not last, and does not live up to claims of good drainage. As with everything else in life, you get what you pay for!

How much does it cost?

CleanTurf is not cheap…the best never is! Think of it as an asset and an investment that can increase the value of your property. Best of all, unlike most expenses you put into your home, CleanTurf will pay for itself over a matter of a few years! For instance, say you spend $200 per month on landscaping and water costs, that equates to $2,400 a year. Over five years, your cost is $12,000. The average CleanTurf lawn can be installed for much less than this!.

What kind of maintenance does it require?

Don’t let turf companies lie to you. This product requires maintenance, but not the level where is intrusive to your lifestyle. More a matter of keeping clean than maintaining…remove organic materials from the surface, typically by using a leaf blower. Rakes may be required for removing heavier objects; however, the leaf blower is the ideal tool for general upkeep. We have partnered with a company named SynPro who offers a service at whatever intervals you wish to come out and remove weeds, clean, decompact, sweep and disinfect the product for you. We realize that the more you take care of the investment the longer and more beautiful it will look.

Is CleanTurf dog friendly?

Put it this way, with our peturf™ product line…now you can have a dog AND a lawn! With over 85% of our customers being dog owners and installations in such places as Veterinarians’ Hospitals and many pet boarding companies, CleanTurf is a proven perfect solution for your yard if you have pets. Liquids drain right through, droppings can be picked up as they would be with regular grass and/or washed off with a hose, and dogs can't dig through it! Muddy paw tracks on your carpet will be a thing of the past! Learn More.

What about my kids playing on CleanTurf?

Kids love it! CleanTurf is softer and safer than real grass and they have loads of fun playing on it. Some consider it their own personal sports field! Parents love the fact that there are no more stained pants and scraped knees! In fact, CleanTurf is preferred at many daycare centers. Many of them are right here in Southern California. Learn More.

Will the rubber or Durafill harm my children or pets?

Our infill is non-toxic and will in no way harm either children or pets if swallowed. We could not have installed CleanTurf in the day care centers and pet facilities, if there was any concern about toxicity. There has been a recent scare about lead in “nylon” turf, however this appears to have been sensationalized and without much merit. Learn More

How well does it drain?

This concern comes up often but thankfully we don’t live in an area where high levels of rain or flooding is a problem. We know that it drains better than real grass! CleanTurf has drilled holes in the backing that provide a rate of drainage exceeding expectations. Couple this with the appropriate base and it’s a wonderful drainage system for your lawn. Other companies tout the fact that drilled holes are inferior, however the contrary is true, coffee filter backings allow weeds to grow through it a lot easier, requiring much more maintenance.

How long does it last?

Quite frankly…we don’t know. CleanTurf’s manufacturer expects that the turf will have a 20-25 year life. The oldest installation is located in Scottsdale, AZ, and has been there for over 15 years. It still looks good and hasn’t faded! Just think — if the brutal Arizona sun hasn’t faded or discolored our turf, it should look great in our wonderful Southern California Climate.

Will weeds grow through it?

Weeds cannot grow through the tough turf backing. On rare occasions, you may see some popping up along a border. No worries…simply shoot some Round-Up™ on them and they are history! Be careful if you own pets and what product you use to abate the weeds.

Why doesn’t it fade?

CleanTurf has a built-in UV protection solution that will allow it to hold its color even under the most dramatic conditions. Independent studies show that CleanTurf’s product line will fade at a rate of less than 1% per year. This means that after ten years in direct sunlight, any color change will still be imperceptible to the human eye.

Can it stain?

We haven’t come across anything that can stain it yet. Sticky spills should be hosed off to prevent them from attracting dirt and bugs. Even paint can be softened with paint remover and then rinsed off.

How does it affect my property value?

Done correctly, 100% to 200% of any investment in quality landscaping will go directly toward the value of your home, according to GE Finance. This does not include the curb appeal which is immeasurable.

Several of our customers have sold their homes and reported that their CleanTurf lawns added a tremendous amount of value. This is also true with other eco friendly products such as solar panels. Potential buyers were very excited about the prospect of purchasing a home with a beautiful lawn all year round.

Is it important to work with a company that has a California Contractor’s license?

When you contract to have work done in your home, remember that to do any project that totals over $500, a company must have a valid Contractor’s License. They are required to include this number on any materials they use to market their work, on their contracts, etc.

By using a licensed contractor, you are assured that the contractor has adequate knowledge and experience to do your job right, and that they are covered by the necessary bonding, insurance and workers comp to protect you, the homeowner. Without a license, you become liable.
