Artificial Lawns | Grass Landscapes


Lake of the Pines – 2004 – Front and side yards of extremely sloped yard. Drought resistant plants, drip irrigation, low voltage lighting and loose rock trim.

It’s good to get to know who we are so when you invite us to help build your project you’ll know what we’ve already accomplished!

TuFFGrass started installing artificial grass lawns in 1998. Every job is a custom project – so understanding your vision is key to our success.

We’re the oldest, continuously operated artificial turf grass installation company on the west coast – and because we started early in the growth of the industry – we’ve contributed proudly and passionately to the market’s growth and best business practices guidelines.

The latest greatest styles of synthetic grass for lawns and landscape we have to offer are incredible! All of our options are made in the USA!  When we started 20 years ago – we only had three styles – a light green, a dark green style and a putting green.


First to offer mono-filament artificial grass styles, first with thatch – first to use acrylic coated infill! We are leaders in innovation …

Our styles are custom crafted to mirror the look and feel of local native grasses like fescue,  blue grass, rye and saint augustine – we’ve created a pallet of our favorites, that compliment local native and sod grasses – installing only the BEST American made solutions, to insure your satisfaction.

As always – artificial lawns are ever green, virtually maintenance free and extremely durable, even under harsh weather, in full sun, or shade! Our jobs, well maintained, always deliver!


Artificial Grass Infill

Another upgrade to our material specification was changing our infill material!

Infill is used to help weigh the grass surfaces down, and to provide vertical lift to hold the blades upright. 

In 2004, we switched to an acrylic coated semi-round granule of silica now known as STF or DuroFill. When we started out, back in 1998, we used a combination of silica sand and recycled crumb rubber granules as infill, so we know the downsides of using it – over time, the crumb rubber continues to break down, and begins to reduce percolation, where acrylic coated infill will not!

Infill is applied to the surface of the grass using a drop spreader; several pounds per square foot.

We use a shag carpet rake to rake the infill deep into the pile height – it spreads it across the backing and distributes it though the surfaces helping to fill in the gaps between the tufts of artificial grass blades.

We are the founding members of the industry’s first installers trade association and the developers of a 6 hour certification course, widely adopted industry installation standards, guidelines and we had an integral hand in the development of several commercially available product lines and new, multi-toned & fiber styles.

Our community support – from free installations at our local fairgrounds & rescue kennels to serving as expert witness for new legislation – we’ve been continuous INDUSTRY – CONSUMER ADVOCATES!

If your California HOA used to ban the use of artificial grass as of 2015, they can no longer do that! 

APPROVED ARTIFICIAL GRASS FOR HOA USEThanks to 10 years of collective efforts of the Metropolitan Water District, the California House and Senate bill sponsors, and the help of Annie speaking as an industry expert  – we were happy to have helped to get new legislation passed that immediately voided all the HOA, County and City bans while also helping establish solid install guidelines.


Being an industry leader – many of our installation techniques and product styles are mirrored in the offerings of others.

We’ve written installation guides, tips and standards for the industry manufacturer’s, distributors and many name brands.  You’ll see our images all over the internet as well as citations crediting our contributions.

We’re proud to set a high standard for installation excellence!

We back it with our own installation guarantee!

Our basic lawn installation – guideline specifications and materials.

Back in the early 2000s, we were motivated to change another key element of installation standards – we walked away from using recycled crumb rubber infill and silica sand and imported a safer, “green” acrylic coated infill; it’s been widely adopted since.  As we promoted our use of products made in the USA – that only use lead-free, UV stable artificial grass styles – others followed.  We were first to introduce the most popular product style for lawn – with multiple colored primary and a shorter, textured, thatch yarn – again – leading others along the way.  We’re proud to encourage others in adopting sound installation practices, using safe, durable products.
