Artificial Turf Options and Ideas

Artificial Grass Turf Guide

Artificial Turf Blogs, Testimonials and other Information

Artificial turf represents a popular surface for a large baseball, football, or soccer field, as it can withstand significant weather and be ready to play quickly. It also saves money for the athletic facility on maintenance, as natural grass can have a high cost to keep it in pristine condition.

Artificial turf options from Greatmats are extremely versatile, so they work well for many other installation options beyond a large field. Create a synthetic golf green to putt and practice at any time of the year. Use it for workouts at the gym, either indoors or outdoors. It’s a great area for dogs to play, too, saving your natural grass lawn area.

Artificial grass is quickly becoming an alternative to a natural grass lawn in places where heat and water conservation are considered. We offer many residential turf options that feature a natural grass feel and appearance.

Top 10 Questions About Artificial Grass Turf

Below are the most popular questions we've received around artificial turf. Click the question to find to get a detailed answer and explanation on these topics.
  1. Can Artificial Turf Be Laid on Concrete for Sled Strips?
    If you have a concrete subfloor, you can lay artificial turf over the top for sled workouts, but you must secure the turf to the concrete. Without securely adhering the turf to the concrete subfloor, the sled could catch unexpectedly on the turf, causing broken equipment or a dangerous misstep for the athlete.

  2. What Is the Best Turf for an XFit Gym?
    Because CrossFit workouts involve such a wide range of movements, having a versatile type of flooring is a must. Synthetic turf is a popular selection for CrossFit gyms, as it can accommodate multiple types of workouts, providing cushioning and stability.

  3. How Do You Maintain Artificial Grass?
    Artificial turf is a great alternative to real grass because of its low maintenance and care needs, however, you will still need to spend some time maintaining the turf to maximize its lifespan.

  4. What Are the Fastest Draining Artificial Turf Products?
    One of the biggest benefits of installing faux turf is that it is ready to play on quickly after a rainstorm. You can speed up the drainage that occurs with the turf by selecting a product designed for outdoor use and by installing a proper drainage system underneath the turf.

  5. What's the Best Indoor Soccer Turf?
    The majority of people will want to install a roll of artificial turf for an indoor soccer complex, as the roll is the most efficient way to cover a large space quickly. However, if you don’t have the equipment to move heavy rolls of turf, selecting interlocking tiles of turf will make the install easier.

  6. Can You Put Turf in Basement Settings?
    Multiple synthetic turf products are available that are made to go over the top of concrete in a basement. The green turf looks great in a basement man cave, in a workout space in the basement, or in a kids’ play area in the basement. Having padding attached to the back of the turf is helpful.

  7. What Is the Cost of Installing Playground Turf?
    If you can install the faux turf yourself, you will save money versus having to hire a professional to perform the installation. The cost of the turf itself typically ranges between $3 and $7 per square foot of coverage.

  8. How Do You Clean Artificial Grass Turf?
    Learning how to clean the faux turf and performing occasional maintenance on it will keep it looking like new for years. Learn how to clean indoor and outdoor turf installations and properly clean specific stains, debris and animal feces or urine.

  9. How Do You Choose and Buy Artificial Turf?
    As you shop for synthetic turf grass for your home, you will consider the following qualities: blade styles and colors, pile height, drainage, durability, antibacterial properties and infill requirements.

  10. How Long Does Outdoor Turf Last?
    Many outdoor turf products are highly durable, but when it comes to how long turf will last, it’s important to consider both a product’s lifespan and how you maintain it when. Many products have warranties for up to 10 or 15 years, making them a long-lasting choice for your yard, sports field, or other outdoor space.
