About Dog Runs and using Perfect Turf® with animals (7)
Yes! You will love having Perfect Turf PetGrass for your dogs. It cleans up easily and handles big dogs with no problem. PetGrass is used in Dog Facilities everywhere from Canada to Arizona, indoors and outdoors, and it has no problem handling the snow and temperature changes. It is anchored around the perimeter and in the interior by nails, or installed in our state-of-the-art POD system.
Perfect Turf is extremely durable and most dogs will give up after an unsuccessful dig. Another solution is to place patio bricks on top of the turf in the problem areas.
You will need to occasionally hose down the turf, especially in periods with no rain, and use standard pet safe odor removers as needed.
Typical dog runs can be installed in one day and carry a 16 to 8 year warranty depending on expected usage. We expect the product to last 10-20 years.
Yes, synthetic turf is a method of landscaping that is approved by all village ordinances. It is also considered a “green” product that can help reduce air pollution and save fresh water while it helps you save money and eliminate the time spent on lawn maintenance!
If you do it yourself expect to pay about $5-7/sf for total materialsnand haul-away costs plus providing all your own install labor.nIf you hire out, expect to pay $8-12/sf total depending on thendifficulty of the install and the size of the job. Compared to other products available, how does your product stand up in a side by side comparison of quality?
About Perfect Turf™ (7)
Yes, we recommend installation by a landscaper or synthetic turf installer, but many homeowners install it themselves. Perfect Turf can be laid over any porous surface that will allow drainage.nnWe recommend 2″-4″ of crushed stone for drainage. If necessary, Perfect Turf can be installed over a dirt and weed barrier, but one should know the downsides of doing it this way. Contact us for details.
Perfect Turf® needs very little maintenance. In the fall, use a rake or blower to clean up leaves. To remove animal feces, you just scoop it up and, in the rare occasion it leaves a mess, just wash the area with a garden hose.
Research on the safety of synthetic turf is overwhelmingly positive. The University of Pennsylvania produced excellent research that dispelled the myth about synthetic turf harboring bacteria. Animals will not eat it, bugs won’t live in it and it helps save the environment. The biggest negative can be how hot it gets in the sunshine on a hot day. This can be addressed in several ways, such as spraying it with water or getting heat-resistant turf.
Yes! Perfect Turf comes with an industry leading warranty of up to 16 years depending on application. The warranty covers fiber degradation, uneven fading and workmanship.
We’re confident that our warranties will still be the best in the industry. Perfect Turf will match or beat any warranty offered by a competitor. Contact us today to get a personalized quote and find out your warranty’s exact length.
No problem, Perfect Turf® is made to withstand ALL the elements.nThe turf typically drains at 30-40 gallons per minute per square yard.nOrder samples of the ones that interest you on our site. Put them through a torture test, Perfect Turf® is tough!
About using Perfect Turf™ for Golf (3)
Extremely realistic. Perfect Turf® putting greens can be made to match a specific speed or putt faster or slower. Perfect Turf® putting greens can be designed to hold a shot from 50 yards or 150 yards – whatever your needs, we can design and build a Perfect Turf® putting green to match it.
For nylon putting greens, you can install it during the day and be putting on it that night. It will roll at about a 10 on the stimpmeter and will stay at that speed for its useful life. For polypropylene putting greens, speeds can be made from 8 to 12 on the stimpmeter.

Installation Information (4)
For Landscaping we need to know:
- Approximately, how big of an area are you looking to cover with Perfect Turf®?
- What is currently on the ground there?
- What kind of access to the area is there? (ie: “next to drive way” vs. “100 yards away, down hill, with a fence in the middle”)
- Do you plan to do any of the work yourself or want an installer for the whole process?
Dog Run specific questions:
- How many dogs, what are their sexes and what are their size?
- Will this be a “dogs only” dog run or will both people and dogs be walking on it?
With these answers in hand, email us or call us and we can make some recommendations, save you loads of time and probably an equal amount of money!

Perfect Turf for Exhibits & Shows (2)

There are several options given the sub-base.nnFeel free to contact us with any questions or if you prefer to order over the phone.

If you are looking for synthetic turf that feels like real grass, ask about our new Perfect Lawn products. The turf is soft, attractive and feels as dense as turf costing much more. No synthetic turf will feel exactly like real grass, but it comes pretty darn close!

Purchasing through a dealer (1)
Do you frown on dealers selling similar products from other companies, or do dealers sign an exclusive agreement?
You have touched on one of the main differences between being a dealer for a company and being an independent installer. Most companies will require their dealers to purchase all their turf from them – regardless of price! We do not. If you become a Perfect Turf dealer all we ask is for the opportunity to meet or beat the price for the product you are considering purchasing from another source. That means we do not frown on you accepting calls and samples from companies trying to sell you turf. Either we can beat the product/price, in which case you benefit and we get valuable market research on what our competition is offering, or we cannot beat their offering, you benefit, and we start figuring out how someone is beating us in the marketplace.
Shipping Information (2)
Shipping rates vary based mostly on size of the roll(s) of carpet to be delivered.nThere is also a $75 residential delivery fee. To avoid this charge being added to your shipping costs, have the turf delivered to a commercial business address (no home-based businesses qualify) or pick-up the turf at the local terminal.nnIf you have any questions about shipping or if you would like a Perfect Turf representative to check and see if your order qualifies for lower shipping costs than you see on your pending web site order, please contact us at 888-796-8873, 7 days a week.
90% of our orders are filled within one business day. Any time your order cannot be shipped within 1-2 business days, you will be personally contacted by a Perfect Turf representative to notify you and review your options.
What is the ballpark price for... (9)
For a 13,000sf baseball field:nnTurf choices range from a non-infilled (actually “less infilled” is more accurate) turf like our PerfectFringe 69 to a traditional rubber-infilled sports turf like our SportsTurf 40. In addition, many fields are being done in a shorter 1.25 – 1.75 monofilament turf like our Monoscape 46 which would then be infilled with a combination of sand and rubber. These choices will impact price, speed of the field, ball bounce, ball roll and appearance. Depending on the option selected, expect your turf material and infill costs to run between $2 – 3/sq ft ($26,000 – $39,000).
Every field is different, so all I can do is give you general ranges.nn$4/sf + or – $1/sf for base and materialsn$4/sf + or – $1/sf for installation and professional servicesnnEither of these figures can go up or down depending on numerous factors.nAre you researching this for a local field project?
