Colorado Springs Artificial Turf FAQ.
As a high quality landscaping company in Colorado Springs, Four Seasons Landscaping is dedicated to providing the best experience with artificial turf, including putting greens. Colorado offers year round sunshine, which makes outdoor space valuable. But this space needs to be functional, beautiful and easy to maintain.
How do you keep the turf clean?
Just like regular grass, use a rake or blower to clean up the leaves. Because of the exceptional drainage abilities of our turf if you have animal debris, simply pick up the debris as you would on regular grass then spray water on the area to dissipate urine, etc… through the turf. Pets usually do not chew or dig holes on turf. And urine does not stain it.
What happens when it rains or snows?
Four Seasons Turf is manufactured specifically with perforated holes designed to accommodate the normal drainage requirements of rain and snowstorms. The water simply drains through the small drainage holes into the ground. The sand and rubber infill will help to absorb, hold and dissipate the water evenly.
Mold, mildew and flammability?
Due to the nature of the materials used and the drainage base designed to migrate water away from the turf, mold and mildew is not an issue.
Generally speaking, the turf is much less flammable than live natural grass (and many times less flammable that dead natural grass). The sand and rubber infill also helps to prevent a fire from spreading, and can often extinguish a fire.
Why should I install turf?
Real grass lawns are expensive, they require irrigation and weekly maintenance, such as: mowing, watering, fertilizing, thatching, weeding, edging, chemical pesticides and winter over-seeding. Four Seasons Turf save you time, money and extra resources expended in maintaining natural grass.
Can your kids play on the turf?
Absolutely, whether the grass is natural or synthetic turf, it is safe to play on. However, Four Seasons Turf is not marketing this product for safety issues, but rather for the beauty and maintenance savings issues of turf compared to that of real grass.
Is the grass pet friendly?
Yes, our turf has been used many times for dog runs. Your pet will also be protected from eating real grass that has been sprayed with harmful chemicals that could cause cancer.
How is the grass priced?
The turf is priced on a per square foot basis.
How much does the turf cost?
Much of the cost will depend on variables such as geographic region, ground preparation requirements, access to the area, size of the job, etc. Other variables will depend on your specific needs such as the base – is a crushed aggregate base sufficient or do you need to use a ProDrain drainage blanket. Is there a need for a perimeter nailer board or will our standard landscape spikes work.

Is the grass abrasive like Astroturf?
Four Seasons Turf is made from a polyethylene fiber which is much softer and nonabrasive compared to the nylon fibers of the old Astroturf or other nylon grasses.
What is the installation time?
In most cases, a lawn can be designed and installed to custom fit your current landscaping requirements in 2 to 4 days. Smaller lawns can be installed in as little as one day.
