I am a rock…..

But not an island.  Among the layers of a good artificial turf installation is crushed granite.  The crushed rock allows for sure footing and a solid base, while also giving good drainage.  The combination of all of those features makes sure your artificial turf installation will be a long-time part of your landscaping.

As we’ve recommended before, ask the contractor you’ve chosen (or are considering) to your work if you can go out on an installation.  Watch how they work and the details of what is going into the installation:

  • How do they remove the old turf?
  • How many layers of what kind of materials are being laid down?
  • Do they pay attnetion to each layer and the detail?

Watch and learn, watch and learn.  It’s the only solid thing to do.
