Artificial grass can be one of the easiest and most cost efficient ways to improve the look and curb appeal of your home – all while reducing your water consumption and your day-to-day yard maintenance.

That’s a win-win.

But we’ve all seen poorly installed grass, and the patchiness, seams, and messiness that comes with it. And nobody wants to deal with that!

That’s why it’s so important that you find a professional artificial grass installer that knows how to get it right. Unfortunately, choosing an artificial grass company isn’t as simple as picking a name from Google or the Yellow Pages. When the longevity of your outdoor space is at stake (not to mention your budget), you need to know what to look for and what to avoid at all costs.

To help keep you in control of your yard, and your budget, here’s everything you should keep in mind.

What should I look for when hiring an artificial grass installation provider?

When you’re looking for a professional artificial grass or synthetic turf provider, it’s important that you find someone who is trustworthy, highly skilled, and able to provide the best final result for you and your home.

To find this person, it’s important that you ask the right questions about their expertise, business, and services. This includes:

Reviewing their professional portfolio

The right professional will be able to provide you with a portfolio of their work, as well as client reviews. Ask, specifically, for an example that looks similar to your home. This will help you get a better idea of what your finished product will look like when they are done. (P.S check out our portfolio here)

Finding out who manufactures their grass

 This is important, as certain manufacturers will offer higher quality and safer artificial grass options. At EverGreen, we specialise in UV-stabilised, lead-free grass that’s soft, flexible, and Australian-made.

Checking out their business’ background

How long have they been in business? What do they specialise in? What kind of installation experience does their team have? Are they licensed or recognized by professional bureaus? Getting this information will help you figure out if you’re working with an established, well-trusted business – and if you are, that will provide additional peace of mind.

Ask about their warranties and guarantees

 The right team will offer you warranties and guarantees, both for their work and for the synthetic grass they use. At EverGreen Synthetic Grass, for example, we offers 7-year warranty and a child and pet-friendly guarantee for our grasses.

What questions should I ask a potential artificial grass provider?

Before you hire an artificial grass installation company, it’s important that you ask the right questions to ensure that they are the right professional for you (and that you are choosing the right grass for your home and your needs).

Specifically, we recommend that you ask:

“How much experience do you have with artificial grass installations?”

Ideally, the right team will have years of industry experience and will have “seen it all.” This can help ensure that they can deal with any unexpected concerns that come their way on your project.

“Can you provide customer testimonials and examples of your work?”

Customer testimonials are one of the best ways to know for sure if a company really knows their stuff, and if they leave their customers truly satisfied.

“What are the best artificial grass options for me?”

Not all synthetic grass is made the same, and not all grass is suitable for all scenarios. It’s important, then, that you touch base with your installation company and find a grass that suits all your needs.

“Do you have an in-house team of installers?” 

If the company you choose outsources their installers, it may be harder to gauge the team’s qualifications and reliability. Are they bringing in seasoned professionals? Is it someone’s first day on the job? If it’s an in-house team, on the other hand, this is what they do day-in, day-out – so you can be more confident that they’re getting the job done.

“How does your turf stand up to children and pets?”

Do you have kids or pets in your home? Then it’s important to know that your grass will be safe, durable, and easy to clean in the face of big messes. Make sure you ask the right questions to that end.

“What is the life expectancy of your grass?”

Want to know exactly how long your artificial grass will last – and what kind of day-to-day maintenance you’ll be expected to carry out? It’s important to ask these questions right off the bat, and make sure that you get a transparent and clear answer. Otherwise, you could wind up with a product that doesn’t stand the test of time.

Is it worth hiring a professional artificial grass installer? 

In a word: yes!

Professional artificial grass installers will bring a host of advantages over unlicensed backyard builders and amateur cowboys.

Flexible know-how

 There’s no one-size-fits-all job when it comes to artificial turf installation. The right professional will be able to adapt and remain flexible in the face of change (without making mistakes). Put someone that doesn’t know what they’re doing on the job, and you face uneven grass and high fix-it costs.

Quick turnaround

If you try to install artificial grass yourself, it will likely be a long and arduous job. Working with professional installers, on the other hand, will ensure that the job gets completed more quickly and more efficiently, no matter the conditions.

The right tools at hand

The right professional will also have specialised tools to get the job done, like vibrating plate compactors to ensure that the sub-base material is sufficiently compacted or turf cutters to make sure the grass is perfectly cut to size.

Lower costs overall

Artificial grass – and the tools to install it – all cost money. And if you wind up making mistakes and wasting material, your costs could really add up and cause you some problems. A professional installer, on the other hand, will minimize waste and costly rework, leading to a small price tag overall.
