Each year, for the past 25 years, in early May I would pull out the lawn mower from the shed, confirm that it would start, check that the blade was sharp and that I had fresh fuel. Then I'd move on to the weed eater. Then I'd have to see about fertilizer and sprinkler system and so on. This was followed by about 30-40 grass cuts before I put it all away for the winter. Yes, like you, I certainly had better things to do with my time!
Well, for years, a company that I managed had sold and installed artificial turf in day cares throughout ON. Daycare operators were tired of natural grass that would disappear when their children would constantly walk on it. We now have installations in daycares that are almost a decade old and they are still beautiful (except at the bottom of slides and swings where there is heavy abrasion)!
So, based on the success of this product in the toughest environment, 3 years ago, I installed artificial turf on my entire yard (850sqft at the front and 300sqft at the rear)).
That's right. Our installers removed the sod, installed a compacted sand base, rolled out the turf, staked the edges and it was finished. I gave my lawn mower away and have only periodically raked the debris off the grass since.
It's beautiful! The blades are 2 tone and there is even brown thatch in the base of the turf. It looks VERY real. It's the first grass on the street to look green and clean in the spring and its still beautifully green right up to when the snow flies.
Since then we've offered ActiveTurf to residential clients in Southwestern Ontario and have completed many installations.
This price is per sqft and assumes your order will be at least one roll. The rolls are 12.25ft wide x 50ft long (612.5sqft). The blade height is 30mm (1.25") (Optional 45mm (1.75") is available for $4.95/sqft). The brown thatch layer is 20mm tall. The face weight is 53oz per square yard (like carpet this is the critical measurement of quality) and the full weight is 83oz.
We're looking forward to your email or call (810 333 4355). We have several container loads of this well priced turf ready for installation in your yard.
If you expect to use our installation services, now would be the time to have your job done as we typically get really backed up in the spring and summer.
If you are able to supply us with pictures of your yard (include access and egress routes) and top view of your area (with dimensions) we will supply a detailed quotation for your project.
Thanks for looking!
