There is no more pet damage, re-seeding, pests, allergies and muddy paw prints…all for a lower overall cost!

Our turf product is a blend of polyethylene and polypropylene, silica sand and rubber granules that will give years of grass-like appearance and use, without the regular maintenance of natural grass. The installation process includes a layer of decomposed granite, our patented polyethylene and polypropylene blades and our rubber granule infill system. This simple installation will provide the safest, most effective surface. It is resistant to temperature extremes, drains quickly (better than real grass) and is extremely low-maintenance.

Our turf product is the choice of thousands of clients around the world. With over 4000 installations in the USA, you will find our turf products infootball fields, soccer fields and baseball fields in all 50 states.

This is our favorite question! Simply put, we offer the best product on the market and is the closest alternative to natural grass. A superior product, coupled with professional service, makes us the only synthetic turf choice for your home or business. There are various newcomers in the synthetic lawn market. None offer the level of quality and service that we provide. If you are considering a lesser product, please be certain that you are dealing with a reputable firm that has trained installers, a Oregon Contractor’s License, is insured and bonded. Make sure that you check references and visit installations for signs of durability and quality. Avoid the pain of a lawn that does not live up to your expectations. As with everything else in life, you get what you pay for!

Artifical turf has a higher initial cost than traditional grass. Think of it as an asset and an investment that will increase the value of your property. Best of all, unlike most expenses you put into your home, Alpha Turf NW will pay for itself over a matter of a few years. For instance, if you spend $200 per month on landscaping and water costs, that equates to $2,400 a year. Over five years, your cost is $12,000. The average Alpha Turf NW lawn is less expensive than that in the long run.

Yes, we offer a variety of financing options to fit your budget including a deferred payment plan!

Our custom installed product cannot realistically be quoted by the square foot. Each lawn is different and we price each project individually based on turf type, required ground preparation, size, and numerous other factors.

Any turf company that randomly provides a square footage price over the phone or on the internet is simply selling outdoor carpet, and not selling the same custom installed projects that we are well known for. In addition, other turf companies frequently charge for the entire amount of turf that will be brought to the job site, including waste, whereas we only charge for the actual square footage to be installed. Simply receiving a square footage price without a site visit is not a realistic or credible estimate of the true cost.

That is why we are happy to offer a free quote for your upcoming project.

Done correctly, 100% to 200% of any investment in quality landscaping will go directly toward the value of your home, according to GE Finance. This does not include the curb appeal which is immeasurable.

Several of our customers have sold their homes and reported that their Alpha Turf NW lawn helped tremendously with the sale of their home. Potential buyers were very excited about the prospect of purchasing a home with a beautiful lawn that required no water or maintenance.

Kids love it! Our product is softer and safer than real grass and they have loads of fun playing on it. Some consider it their own personal sports field! Parents love the fact that there are no more stained pants, scraped knees or grass allergies. Our product is the turf-of-choice of hundreds of daycare centers around the nation…many of them are right here in the Northwest.

You can now have a dog AND a lawn! With over 80% of our customers being dog owners and installations in such places as the Humane Society, and many other pet care facilities, our product is the proven perfect solution for your yard if you have pets. Liquids drain right through, droppings can be picked up as they would be with regular grass and/or washed off with a hose, and dogs can’t dig through it. Muddy paw tracks on your carpet will be a thing of the past!

Our product’s infill is non-toxic and will in no way harm either children or pets if swallowed. We could not have installed our product in the many day care centers and pet facilities, including Sea World and the San Diego Humane Society, if there was any concern about toxicity.

Not a chance…the turf is fire-retardant. In fact, our product stood up to the challenge of the recent fires in Southern California suffering only minor damage from the heat and embers.

Four words…better than real grass! Our product’s patented installation process provides five inches of product being installed that drains 40-60 inches per hour.

Quite frankly…we don’t know. our product is expected to have a 20-30 year life expectancy. Our warranty guarantees that it won’t fade or fall apart, and that it will look great for years to come!

Simple answer…consider the fact that our product is being used by the NFL as their playing surface. These guys are going to be more brutal than your kids, pets and friends combined!

Due to its extremely porous design, mold and mildew are never a problem.

Our product has a built-in UV protection solution that will allow it to hold its color even under the most dramatic conditions. Independent studies show that our product will fade at a rate of less than 1% per year. This means that after ten years in direct sunlight, any color change will still be imperceptible to the human eye.

We haven’t come across anything that can stain it yet. Sticky spills should be hosed off to prevent them from attracting dirt and bugs. Even paint can be softened with paint remover and then rinsed off.

The grass does not stay as cool as natural grass which has water running through it, but it does not absorb and radiate heat like pavement, rock or brick. Even through summer heat, your lawn will remain pleasantly functional.

We utilize a combination of silica sand and crumb rubber infill for our installations because this method provides a comfortable feel underfoot and is the most effective means known to keep the synthetic blades upright. In many ways, it functions as a synthetic dirt.

Other turf companies claim rubber infill is toxic or hazardous. This is a falsehood. Test after test has verified that rubber infill is completely safe and harmless. They make these claims because they employ different infill systems or none at all. The result is turf that mats down with even a small amount of foot traffic.

Our product remains the turf-of-choice for thousands of athletic teams and homeowners and has proven to be the highest quality turf installation available anywhere.

More a matter of keeping clean than maintaining…remove organic materials from the surface, typically by using a leaf blower. Rakes may be required for removing heavier objects; however, the leaf blower is the ideal tool for general upkeep. A stiff, natural bristle broom can be used to “fluff” high traffic areas.

Say goodbye to pesky critters! Our product will eliminate any troubles you have with rabbits and gophers. Rabbits will no longer ruin your lawn by eating your grass and gophers cannot come up through the turf! Your new lawn will be safer because you will no longer have a need for pesticides. Bugs and insects are history!

Weeds cannot grow through the tough turf backing. On rare occasions, you may see some popping up along a border. No worries…simply spray some Round-Up™ on them and they are history!

An average landscaping area might take two to three days. Each installation is customized, so it is sometimes hard to determine this without a site visit.

We offer the longest and most protective warranty in the business, and covers fading, discoloration, and problems with materials and workmanship.
