Building the foundation

As with anything, an artificial grass installation is only as good as the foundation on which it is built.

Step 1:

Existing surface or project area (grass, soil, rocks) is stripped away and taken to a soil recycler.

Step 2:

Edging is used to distinguish the artificial grass area from other areas, such as gardens, beds, or other grass areas to prevent soil from mixing with the crush gravel base. Edging is not required against surfaces like concrete, paving stones, or wood.

Step 3:

To create a hard, smooth, and stable foundation for the artificial grass, we bring in ¾ inch crush gravel and spread it evenly. We then compact the gravel to create a level surface. Final touch is to add is Limestone fines to smooth any little dips and imperfections. The compacted base still allows water to pass through it, allowing rainwater to reach tree and plant roots beneath. This helps to maintain a healthy ecosystem in your yard.

Surfacing the Project

Step 1:

 The artificial grass is brought on site in the predetermined pieces from the consultation. These pieces are laid out, cut and seamed together to cover the defined grass area.

Step 2:

Once the grass is cut to size and positioned correctly, we use four-to-six-inch spiral nails to secure it to the ground. These nails are placed along the perimeter of the grass and down every seam at six-inch intervals, as well as in a grid pattern throughout the center of the grass.

Step 3:

We use infill to enhance the stability and durability of the artificial grass. Infill refers to the process of spreading a layer of Zeolite or Silica Sand over the surface of the grass and working it into the base of the blades. Infill helps to hold the blades in place, preventing them from collapsing or losing their shape. It also protects the backing of the grass, which Is the sheet that the blades are woven into from UV exposure. At Ace Turf, we prefer to use Zeolite as it helps to regulate the temperature of the grass by retaining moisture.

hired these guys for backyard renovation, needed them to build solid RV pad on one half and install artificial grass on the other half. Grass looks great. RV pad base was not prepared properly, RV pad is soft, after each pull in we have 8" deep ruts, informed them and no one showed up to check on the issue

UPDATE: Great after-service! Cameron came back the following summer and touched-up a seam. You can count on satisfaction on their work.ORIGINAL: We had a small job to replace the grass in our backyard with artificial turf since nothing was growing under two large spruce trees. Cameron from Ace Turf visited our home and provided an estimate once we chose the artificial grass we wanted. Cameron was very professional, polite, and easy to talk to. We found their quote quite competititve among 5 companies. Two workers along with Cameron started the project on their promised date and completed it in 2 1/2 days. The workers were hard working (manual digging and removal of the existing grass and dirt), well mannered, friendly, and kept a tidy worksite. The finished job looks excellent (the grass actually looks too perfect now!) and it met all our expectations.We are very pleased with the project from start to finish and would highly recommend Ace Turf for this type of work.

I had a wonderful experience working with Cameron and David from Ace Turf. Cameron was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process in answering and addressing any questions or concerns that I had. The installation was seamless and quick. I am so happy with the final result, the turf is soft to the touch, it makes my daycare space look bigger, brighter and most importantly the kids love running and rolling around on it. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is looking to install artificial turf.
