When you mention Texas to anyone, Austin is one of the first cities that come to mind. There’s a lot to see and do in one of the country’s most vibrant cities. There are also industries that make Austin a great place to settle down.

What are the Benefits of Installing Artificial Grass in Austin, TX?
Ideal Turf isn't a franchise that uses a cookie-cutter system to promote and sell turf. We know our products and installation processes are superior, because we don't stop researching, testing, and improving them.
There are plenty of things you can do in Austin with your family and friends, and wasting your time mowing your lawn is far from ideal. Replacing your natural grass with synthetic grass gives you the opportunity to use your time however you want.
Natural grass owners spend a lot of money on keeping the appearances of their homes, and any means to cut costs is a welcome addition. Ideal Turf’s artificial grass products allow you to save money from the big spendings you have to make on lawn care.
Easy to Maintain
Maintaining a natural grass lawn requires a lot of care, resources, and time. When you make the switch from natural grass to artificial grass, all that’s required to maintain it is a stiff-bristled broom, water, soap, and a few minutes of your time each month.
With synthetic grass, you no longer have to worry about kids and pets being exposed to the harmful chemicals used on natural grass. Antimicrobial technology is built into the turf fibers and is not a post-production application or spray that will wear off or fade away.
We have major problems with global warming and water shortage but when you make the switch you have the power to eliminate a lot of these problems because you will lessen your carbon footprint and decrease your water usage with artificial turf.
It can be tough to keep your lawn green throughout the hottest months in Austin. You will not worry about that with our artificial grass products. Regardless of the temperature and the amount of rain, this grass will always look naturally green and full.

I first have to start this off by thanking Josh Hamilton, the General Manager and our design consultant, Amanda Harvey in Finance, and Tony & his crew who did the installation. From start to finish this has been a wonderful experience, and the results are truly amazing. I must have heard my wife say a dozen times, “I love our backyard!” We haven’t been able to say that in a dozen years or more. I highly recommend Ideal Turf for their promptness, knowledge, courtesy, and amazing attention to detail.
These guys did an amazing job transforming our yard into something special. We have big dogs that had destroyed the grass and were constantly tracking mud into house. Shawn came out and quoted the job and got the ball rolling. The crew that installed did a fantastic job from start to finish. We are beyond pleased with the results. Only wish we’d done it years ago. And by the way the animals love it! 😍
Extremely responsive with great customer service! Our only regret is that we should have done this sooner! We had a small side yard converted - Ideal Turf did not try to sell us more than we wanted (no pressure - just the expertise we needed). Installation crew was focused and cleaned up beyond our expectation. Great company!!
Ideal Turf turned our backyard into an oasis! Our dogs had “played “ off the grass in our backyard and there was no hope of a lawn ever surviving until Ideal Turf came into our lives. The turf, the walkways, and rock areas are perfect. They did exactly what we asked them to do. They even made the greenhouse look good! All of the associates were professional and prompt in every stage from beginning to end. I cant say enough how great Ideal Turf and their employees have been. We had a fantastic experience and the dogs love it!
Finished product was amazing!Crew was great, respectful and courteous.They even got rained out twice and were STILL working in the rain.Very happy with finished product, beyond expectations.Hopefully now I can fix my short game.
So far not great communication.Guy came out to do a walk around and give an estimate Aug 13th 2020.I approved the estimate via an email and paid a 50% deposit the next day on Aug 14th. I then heard nothing for over a week. I sent multiple emails to the three folks involved in the quote and the payment and still have yet to receive a response. I finally got a call on Friday the 21st of August telling me I was on the schedule for Tuesday Sept 1st. This person also told me I would receive an email confirming my appointment. Well its 6 days later and I have no email confirmation. EDIT : General Manager Josh gave me a call and was nice and apologetic. Will update review completely after my Job is done Tuesday.
I emailed 4-5 places for Turf and I liked the fact that ideal wasn't a chain. It's a local company doing what they do; they had more samples than any of the other companies and were better priced. Win win! They are very knowledgeable and I enjoyed working with them. I worked with Mark Adams,who came out and measured our yard, gave us samples and prepared the quotes. We chose something pet friendly and that looks so natural (Sheffield). They were so accommodating and changed the installation date 2-3x as our pool was delayed and not finished, it was never an issue and Sai (person I coordinated with after sales guy was out) was very responsive via text. They came out and were done with the entire process in 2 days! They were quick, professional and kind. Pablo walked me around the yard once it was finished and gave me a quick run down on upkeep and how to take care of it.* I am leaving 5 stars because the entire process was easy and the results are amazing, but our final bill ended up being $2k more than quoted because the measurements/plan was wrong (a miscommunication between us and Mark the sales guy). That was a bit frustrating since they came out and measured. Keep that in mind, it could be a bit more than expected if the measurements are slightly off. Either way, I would go with them again and hope to get permission to do the front yard.
Ideal Turf did an excellent job in our side yard in Travis Heights. We had a difficult space with too much shade for grass, pea gravel was installed but messy and not practical with the outdoor furniture we have. The whole team was excellent and we now have a much more usable large side yard.
I can't give 6 stars or I would. These guys are so outstanding from the first person we met to the installation. They constantly check on their work and are so friendly, courteous, and professional. I guess this really says it all: our front and back yards looks so much better than anyone else's yard in our community.
The whole process with Ideal Turf was really great! They called me with a few hours of filling out the form, I got an estimate and set up an appointment for the sales guy to come out. He really knew what he was talking about and before I knew it, the installation was schedule for 2 weeks later! The crew completed the installation in a day and my yard wasn't left a mess. So glad I decided to use them!

Can You Install Artificial Grass on Dirt? What About Concrete?
Yes to both. Artificial turf is meant to thrive on open grounds as it is designed with that function in mind. When installing artificial grass on dirt, several steps must be taken to prepare the ground. The dirt surface must be properly flattened and topped with a base layer of crushed limestone that’s compacted. With the versatility of artificial grass it can be installed just about anywhere you can imagine. It actually requires less preparation to install artificial grass on concrete.
Can I Install Artificial Grass Myself?
Yes. You can install artificial grass by yourself if you have the proper tools for the job. However, we strongly recommend going with a reputable artificial grass installation company. Working with a professional turf company, you can rest assured that your synthetic grass will be properly installed and will last for years to come.

Is Artificial Grass Safe for Children & Pets?
Yes! Artificial grass is safe for children and pets. Synthetic grass eliminates the harmful chemicals required to maintain a natural grass yard. It also eliminates the need to use any gas-powered lawn care equipment. Additionally, artificial grass improves playground & play area safety by providing a lush, soft surface that helps to absorb the impact of falls. So, with artificial grass, your children and pets will be safer than ever.
How Much Does Artificial Grass Installation Cost?
The final price of artificial grass in Austin depends largely on the size of the installation, type of turf being installed, the amount of prep work required, etc. On average, for a 1,000 square foot installation, you can expect to pay around $6.00 – $12.00 per square foot. If you know the size of your lawn and would like to know what it might cost, you can use our artificial grass cost calculator.
What is the Square Footage Price of Artificial Grass?
Our custom installed artificial grass solutions cannot realistically be quoted by the square foot. Each lawn is different and Ideal Turf prices each project individually based on turf type, required ground preparation, size of the installation, and a number of other factors.
Any artificial grass 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 artificial grass solutions that Ideal Turf is well known for. Simply receiving a square footage price without a site visit is not a realistic or credible estimate of the true cost.
That is why Ideal Turf is happy to offer a FREE Design Consultation to provide exact pricing for your commercial or residential turf project.
What are the Most Common Uses of Artificial Grass in Austin, TX?
Artificial grass is extremely versatile and is commonly used at both residential and commercial properties throughout Austin.
Pet Turf (Artificial Grass for Dogs) – People choose artificial turf for dogs and other pets because artificial turf doesn’t develop brown dog urine spots, dogs can’t dig through it, and because its durability allows it to remain pristine, even with very active dogs.
Outdoor Living Areas (Decks, Patios & Swimming Pool Areas) – A very popular application for artificial grass is in outdoor living areas. For example: artificial grass rooftops, decks, balconies, and patios. Also very popular is artificial grass around swimming pools.
Front Yards & Backyards (Lawns & Landscapes) – A lot of people want artificial grass for their front or backyards. A synthetic lawn boosts curb appeal and increases the value of your home while also allowing you to avoid watering and maintenance costs. Installing artificial grass in your yard can save up to 56,000 gallons of water per year!
Sports (Putting Greens & Bocce Ball) – A feature unfamiliar to most homeowners that’s exploded in popularity is backyard putting greens. Maintaining a natural grass putting green is extremely time and labor-intensive, not to mention expensive. Alternatively, you’re free to choose your own putting green design, from the shape of the green to the number of holes, breaks, and more. Artificial turf putting greens are great for either leisure golfers or serious golfers looking to improve their short game.
What is Artificial Grass Made of?
Artificial grass is made out of resilient compounds like polypropylene, polyethylene, and nylon. Manufacturers add other compounds to incorporate different features into their synthetic grass. For example, our turf products contain “Microbe-Safe™ Technology,” which is an antimicrobial additive that’s infused with the turf’s backing during the manufacturing process. This is especially valuable on fake grass for dogs as it helps prevent the buildup of odors and bacteria from dog urine.
How Long Does Artificial Grass Last?
The actual longevity of your synthetic grass in Austin will depend on the amount of foot traffic, and the frequency of maintenance it gets. However, artificial grass usually provides up to 20+ years of service.
What Maintenance Does Artificial Grass Require?
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. For a complete overview, check out our post on Artificial Turf Maintenance: How To Clean Synthetic Grass.
How Hot Does Artificial Grass Get?
Manufactured 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 during Austin’s summer heat, your lawn will remain pleasantly functional. On those days that are extremely hot, you can hose off your lawn to cool it down. We also recommend using T°Cool® Infill with your turf installation because it cools the artificial grass by 30° – 50°F through evaporative cooling.
