Frequently Asked Questions

How can NorCal Easy Greens Products Be Used?

Artificial grass has many useful applications. The most common uses are
for lawns ,dog runs, and putting greens. It may surprise you to know that
we also have artificial grass for putting green, playgrounds, swimming
pool , traffic medians, patios & balconies, indoor &
outdoor sports fields, retail displays, batting cage facilities, tennis
courts, and bocce ball courts.

What is the life expectancy of NorCal Easy Green Synthetic Grass™?

Our artificial grass comes with a limited 8-year warranty, but the actual
life expectancy is depending on use and care. Additionally, we are the
only company to offer a 3rd party insured warranty for artificial grass.

Is our product similar to indoor/outdoor carpet?

Not at all. Our synthetic grass truly resembles natural grass. Not only
does ProGreen Synthetic Grass™ look real, but many of our grass
products feel real! The fiber length ranges from 1″ to 2.5″ depending on the product.

Is the sun harmful to our NorCal Synthetic Grass™, will it fade?

No. We don’t use a topical UV treatment, our fibers have built-in UV
Inhibitors that we mix into the fiber/yarn resin. Turf made outside of
the USA will often have insufficient UV protection that can cause the
fibers to break down prematurely. All of our turf is made of the highest-quality materials from our plants in the USA.

Is synthetic grass warmer than my natural lawn?

Yes, all synthetic grass is hotter than natural grass; It just doesn’t have the natural cooling capacity of natural grass. There are always trade-offs for the benefits,which include no mowing, no watering, no
weeding, no chemical applications, easier dog clean up, no mud, etc. The
only real trade-off is that the surface of synthetic grass will be hotter than natural grass.

What are NorCal Easy Green prices?

Prices range between $3.75 and $500 per square foot. Freight and/or
installation not included.

How Does NorCal Easy Green Keep the Synthetic Grass in place once it is installed?

An infill material (usually sand) is brushed into the top of the grass that adds to the weight of the installed grass and acts as a ballast. Additionally, the edges are pinned down with our 7″ non-corrosive spikes which are spaced approximately 3′ apart.

How does NorCal Easy Green Synthetic Grass™ affect the environment?

NorCal Easy Green Synthetic Grass™ is environmentally friendly: it eliminates the need for water. It also eliminates the need for harmful chemicals that seep into the soil (fertilizers, pesticides, weed kill, etc.) Additionally NorCal Easy Green Synthetic Grass™ is recyclable and is available
with an eco-friendly infill material.

What about pets? What happens to dog urine and waste?

Dogs love our grass; they think it’s real! Dog urine is not a problem as it flushes through the turf’s drainage holes and drainage system when hosed off or when it rains. Solid waste is cleaned in the same manner as natural grass. The Synthetic Grass will not stain.

For heavy usage areas, such as dog kennels and doggy day care facilities,
we use a different aggregate blend for the base below the artificial grass. We also offer anti-odor products like Odor Eradicator™ (a
topical spray) and Synthetic Turf Deodorizer™ (a microporous mineral.)

What happens to NorCal Easy Green Synthetic Grass™ if a dog tries to dig through it?

Although we can’t guarantee that a dog won’t claw through or peel back the edges of the turf, it’s extremely rare. Our Synthetic Grass™ has been installed in hundreds of residential and commercial dog runs around the world. NorCal Easy Green Synthetic Grass™ is extremely durable and
almost impossible to rip or tear due to our double-coated backing.

There are exceptions; we recommend putting extra border stakes around the
perimeter of the dog run to discourage dogs from digging. Another option
is building sub-surface composite wood border around the perimeter of the
area that you can affix to the grass.

What type of maintenance should I expect with Synthetic Grass?

An occasional brooming to stand the grass fibers up is recommended but not
necessary. Debris like leaves and twigs can be easily removed with a leaf blower.

How is does NorCal Easy Green Install the Synthetic Grass?

Existing sod must first be removed. Next, a base is created using a special blend of crushed rock (2″ – 4″ depth), then smoothed and compacted. The artificial grass is then rolled onto the surface of the base and seamed together if necessary (turf widths are 15′.) Then the infill material is spread over the top of the grass using a fertilizer spreader and brushed to the bottom of the artificial grass. The grass product and intended use determine the type and amount of infill. The infill can be sand, rubber crumb, or our eco-friendly Organafill™ (or a combination of the above). Installation for synthetic putting greens is similar but there are additional layers of base materials that need to be thouroughly compacted. Refer to our installation overview for more information.

What about drainage?

Drainage is very similar to natural grass. Our Synthetic Grass has perforated holes in the backing that allow water to drain into the blended rock base below the artificial turf. Different blends of crushed rock are used for different applications, depending on permeability needs.

How does the cost of Synthetic Grass compare to installing a natural lawn?

When compared to installing a sprinkler system, top soil and the
price of sod, combined with frequent watering, mowing, weeding, and
fertilizing, the cost of synthetic grass hits a break-even point in 3 to 5 years. You can minimize your investment if you include landscaping rocks, mulch beds and xeriscape elements with your synthetic grass. The contrast of landscape rock with Synthetic Grass looks fantastic!
