Synthetic Turf Installation

Synthetic Turf & Artificial Grass Installation Company in San Diego, Ca

INSTALL-IT-DIRECT is the Fastest Growing Synthetic Turf Installation Company in San Diego, CA; changing a lot of peoples mind about the contractors and transforming them into Extremely Happy Customers.

Our rapid growth in Southern California is largely attributed to our Lean Methodology. We deconstructed the entire synthetic turf industry piece by piece and found many opportunities to make the system better; a lot better.

  • The 1st and most important ingredient in creating a highly successful installation company was going to be the installers we recruited to our team. We analyzed all the turf companies in existence and researched all the installers. In our discovery we learned a lot about the huge variance in the level of experience of the turf installers. The installers with a lot of experience are hard to find and once we located our team, we quickly recruited them.
  • The 2nd piece of the equation was to evaluate all the synthetic turf options on the market. There is also a large difference in the quality of turf that is available. We quickly discovered the manufacturer that was the biggest, most reputable, and is leading the way in terms of producing the latest, most innovative synthetic turf technology.

Our formula is simple: Hire the best, install only the highest quality turf, eliminate all unnecessary overhead, and pass as much savings onto our customers. We let our customers do the talking for us.

There are a few things you should consider BEFORE YOU HIRE your turf installer:

  • The 1st item is that ALL the synthetic turf companies buy the material from one of six worldwide manufacturers (Tiger Turf, Challenger, Crystal Turf, Controlled Products, Field Turf Tarkett, Turf Store). Most of the installation companies will change the name so that it is harder to identify the actual manufacturing source. The main thing to note is that the material should be the same across the board assuming you are comparing the same turf manufacturer.
  • The 2nd and most important thing to consider is the actual installation crew that will be installing your synthetic turf. Since most of the companies hire subcontractors to install the synthetic turf, you will want to do a little homework and find out which sub you will get on day #1 of the installation. INSTALL-IT-DIRECT have both in-house crews as well as exclusive access to the most qualified synthetic turf subcontractors in the business. All our in-house turf installers are employees of IID and have over 15 years of experience. Our level of experience is unmatched in the turf industry as no other company has as much experience installing synthetic turf.

Synthetic Turf FAQs

My neighbor just had their Patio and Driveway installed with pavers. They went with a Brand Named Company for the back Patio and went with Install-It-Direct for the driveway. I saw the same crew working on both projects, and noticed that they had different shirts on the second time around. Did the same crew really install both jobs?

Yes, the same crew did both projects. The only difference between the two projects was that the homeowner saved a lot of money the second go around by educating himself and selecting Install It Direct to complete his project. He also ended up with a much better design, as all of our consultants are Professional Designers as opposed to "Salespeople" looking for a BIG commission check.

Can you give me a "Ball-Park Estimate," in regards to how much a Paving Stone Driveway Installation might cost?

Based on a typical 1,000sqft "square driveway (residential)," you are looking at an estimated range of $9,900-$13,900; however, this can vary, depending on the following factors:

  • Paving Stone Manufacturer
  • Paving Stone Type
  • Accessibility (Bobcat Access)
  • City Permits (Carlsbad, Del Mar, Coronado)
  • Type of Demolition Required (Concrete w/ Rebar, Wood, Grass, Roots, etc.)
  • Extras (Wall Build, Step Build, Synthetic Turf, Drainage, Sealer, etc.), etc.

Are there different prices between different manufacturers?

Yes, the prices do vary depending on which manufacturer you choose. Angelus/Orco would be the least expensive, followed by Ackerstone/Olsen, then Belgard.

Are there different prices between different paver types (Tumbled, Non-Tumbled)?

Yes, the prices do vary depending on which paver type you choose. Non-Tumbled would be the least expensive, followed by Tumbled, then Slate Top.

Do I need sealer on my project?

No, sealer is optional. There are various types of sealers, including: joint stabilizer sealer, color enhancer sealer, wet look sealer, etc.; however, the most popular sealer is the joint stabilizer sealer. This particular sealer locks in the joints to help prevent weeds or any other growth from occurring between the pavers. It also helps with inhibiting staining, however, it does not eliminate all stains.
