Artificial Grass Benefits
Artificial grass drains at a rate of about 30 inches per hour per square yard, which is much faster than real grass. It is a pet-friendly grass that is also 100% safe for kids, sports, and landscape drainage. Also, Artificial Grass goes very well with landscape pavers. Furthermore, Artificial grass is not only beautiful, but it has an enormous amount of benefits. It is made entirely of recycled plastic, so the production process does not harm the environment. Therefore, it helps reduce our world’s waste by regenerating it into a useful yard addition. It is also an extremely safe product for kids and pets to play on. Our crew can even add a 1-inch padding layer into the turf for extra safety and comfort.
Artificial Grass Adds Curb Appeal
Homeowners may find artificial grass to be a worthwhile investment. Fake grass can cause homes to rise in value by at least 15%-20%. Meaning artificial turf is causing these owners to receive a high return on their investment! Real grass, however, does not add much value to a home. Instead, real grass can cause potential buyers to stray from buying a home if the lawn is not well-kept.
Artificial Turf (Fake Grass) vs Real Grass
When comparing real grass to artificial turf, we need to look at more than just the price. Artificial grass can be more costly upfront but tends to save homeowners a large sum of money once installed. However, we must also consider the location, lawn growth, and color. If your lawn receives too much or too little sun, regular grass might not be the best option. If regular grass tends not to grow, fake grass could be just the thing you need. Synthetic turf is also great if you prefer lots of vibrant color in your yard.
There are also a few questions to consider.
- Do you mind a costly water bill each month to maintain your grass?
- Does your lawn get enough sunlight to cause regular grass to grow?
- Is the color of natural grass too dull for you
Real Grass is expensive
Indeed, real grass needs lots of water to be healthy and vibrant in color. Additionally, maintaining vibrant, you will need to water your yard consistently. A lawn sprinkler system may seem like the solution. However, it can be a significant expense that comes with having regular grass. Just from watering the grass alone, homeowners incur high water bills every month.
Once the grass grows, cutting the lawn becomes a problem. This problem can quickly turn into another expense. When the yard needs mowing, you have close to two options. You can spend your own time and energy to trim it, which may get exhausting. Or you can pay to hire a lawn maintenance company. If the grass on your lawn grows fast, this requires more of your time to maintain the property. If you hire a maintenance crew, you can expect more frequent visits, which is more money down. In addition to these pesky monthly costs, there is another possibility of a problem. The lawn could be watered, trimmed, and fertilized frequently, yet the grass will not grow. Homeowners often complain about this issue, especially in areas of intense heat, dryness, or lack of sunshine. This issue also occurs on properties with far too much shade. Regardless, homeowners may struggle with a lack of growth on their lawn for a long time. They may continue to invest more time and money, only to end up once more with dead grass in their yard. Artificial turf can skip this entire troublesome process. Since fake grass needs no watering, there is no monthly water bill for your lawn. In addition, our synthetic grass can go years without maintenance. Artificial turf will also hold its bright color for years to come. We can even install drainage systems such as french drains or sump-pump drains below the artificial turf. With the help of these drains, your property will drain much faster than any lawn made of real grass. The high drainage rate for synthetic turf prevents any major flooding problems. It can save homeowners a tremendous amount of money with the frequent flooding in Houston, Texas.

1. Pet-Friendly Artificial Turf
One of our most popular fake grass products is our Pet-Friendly Artificial Turf. This synthetic grass is very popular due to the vast benefits it offers. Firstly, it is non-toxic and hypo-allergenic, meaning your pets are free to lay around and play safely on the lawn. Secondly, it also allows animals to urinate on the synthetic turf since it will drain, not stain. Since the grass is not real, pet owners do not have to worry about their animals killing or discoloring the grass. Lastly, the color is estimated to lose only 8% of its intensity over ten years. Indeed, due to its superior durability, a pet-friendly aritificial turf is a great choice for dogs or cats.
Pet-friendly artificial turf is often installed with an infill called Zeolite. Zeolite cools down the temperature of the lawn while simultaneously attracting and eliminating any bad smells. The turf’s design also prevents insects from breaching the surface or abiding in the seams of the fake grass. This pet-friendly turf provides various benefits for pet owners, making it an excellent option for their lawn.
Houston Landscape Pros offers Envirofill for pet friendly artificial turf. It is coated round sand infused with Microban® antimicrobial product technology for protection against bacteria, mold and mildew growth that can cause stains and odors. In addition, Envirofill uses a superior infill found only in Texas, which provides superior drainage. It is also reusable in any case that you need to replace your existing artificial grass.
2. Artificial Turf – Sport Turf
There are various types of sporting artificial turf. Some are used for playgrounds, soccer, golf, and many more activities. These types are often similar because they need extra layers of cushioning in case of accidents. The infills used may also be alike due to the cooling properties they serve. Sporting infills reduce the temperature of the lawn to prevent athletes or children from burns and excessive heat. We recommend HydroChill cooling system, so athletes can focus on the task, not the temperature. HydroChill provides maximum benefit during the hottest part of the day, as you know it can get here in Houston, TX.
When building soccer fields or new playgrounds, we have just the right synthetic grass that you will need. We can add extra support to the artificial turf’s surface to prevent scrapes or serious injuries. Some fake grass we offer will ensure safety from 8 to 10-feet falls, helping the damage become much less severe. Burns can also be minimized with our infills that cool down the turf’s fibers during Houston’s hottest days. Joined with our outdoor lighting, the family can play on the fields at any time of the day.
Another type of artificial grass that Houston Landscape Pros provides is for golf courses. You can now install putting greens in your front yard, back yard, or side yard!

Artificial Grass Installation
How is artificial grass installed? Our step-by-step guide includes our four-step installation process: Planning, Preparing the Base, Cutting and Placing, then lastly, Laying the Infill.
The planning process begins by first determining what type of turf our customer needs for their property. Will we be installing fake grass for pets to run around on? Or will we be introducing a new sport field (like soccer, practice your batting for baseball or softball or even football player such as quart back)? We need to determine this information to ensure we bring the right artificial turf to the project.
Installation: Preparing the Base
When creating our foundation for synthetic grass, we must first remove the existing vegetation surface. It includes any remaining grass, hard surfaces such as concrete, bricks, and anything else. We will then cap existing sprinkler systems and install any drainage necessary at this time. Secondly, we will dig out 2-4 inches into the surface, depending on the work area. Thirdly, we will make the foundation even and set grade using a landscaping compactor and lawn roller, and other necessary equipment. Now the base is complete and ready for cutting and placing the artificial grass. However, in some cases, the customer wants to lay the synthetic grass on top of the concrete area.
Installation: Cutting & Placing
With a clean and even base setup, we are now ready to unroll the turf. Since the artificial turf has been rolled up for some time, the fibers tend to lay at an angle. To avoid this problem, we allow the fake grass to sit in the sun for a few hours. The sun helps the grass fibers return to a standing position, and helps the backing even itself out.
Once the fake grass blades return to their normal position, we begin cutting our artificial grass. We use our measurements, which we established during our planning phase of the installation process. Then we make the proper cuttings to start placing the synthetic grass on the property. Once the artificial turf is all set in the appropriate spots, we will secure the seams. This step binds each cutting of the fake grass together. We will use a mechanical fastener to secure the seams. We aim to place the least amount of seams possible for your property. However, the seams required varies based on the size, shape, and location of the yard. Once the seams fasten together, we can trim around the lawn’s border to remove any excess turf.
Now that our team has cut the artificial grass to fit the property, we will use a galvanized staple to bond it to the land. We will use this staple around the perimeter until every strip of fake grass is secure. Lastly, our crew will scan the area for any errors. If we notice any mistakes, we will correct them accordingly before proceeding to the final step.
Installation: Laying the Infill
Our team uses infill on all artificial turf jobs that we complete. Infill is essentially gravel, sand, or coarse stone. It is a dense material that will add an extra sense of security to the foundation. Incorporating the infill protects the backing of the turf while correcting the structure of the artificial turf blades. We apply the infill by using a drop spreader, which slowly releases the ballast across the fake grass. It also creates an even more compact lawn. Once the infill spreads across the entire surface, we will need a power broom. The broom will knead the ballast deeper into the foundation. This final step makes the artificial grass stand up even straighter than before. Finally, our team will use either a leaf blower, broom, or plastic rake to tidy up the final product.
Installation: Final Process
Now our team has finished planning, creating the base, cutting and placing the fake grass, and laying the infill. These steps conclude the artificial grass installation process. As always, we triple-check our work and get customer feedback. Now our client can enjoy their new and beautiful lawn of fake grass.
Artificial Grass – Cost Factors
Houston Landscape Pros has competitive prices when it comes to landscape for artificial grass cost. With that in mind, we still make our artificial grass cost as affordable as possible with materials and labor included. Also, keep in mind the price showed is only a base price. Therefore, the artificial grass cost may vary when using a more expensive artificial grass type or if the landscape project area has any difficulties. In addition, we can give better deals if you are also getting other types of landscaping done. It all depends on what landscape installation is best for your landscape design.
