Top 10 Best Artificial Turf Installers in Los Angeles

"Incredibly professional and well informed. I greatly appreciate their attention to detail and the time spent helping me understand the variety of turf types available. They walked me through all of the options so that we could pick the best turf for my yard and pup. The job turned out better than expected! Just wish I called them sooner so I had more time to enjoy the new yard this summer. Highly recommend!" - Joe S.

Recent Negative Review:

"The quality is not good no UV protection, the turf burnt after 3 weeks of installation. After long negotiations 3 months they came to fix the issues they installed a defected leftover piece with different color and different tone. They replaced the burnt piece which was 5”X12” by 4 pieces, they connected them and nailed them, the pieces are not even they look ugly as shown in the photos. Not recommended at all." - Magdy B.

Recent Positive Review:

"Olivier's professionalism, reasonable pricing and the quality of ShawGrass turf stood out from his competitors. He installed the most realistic and nicest looking turf in our backyard back in 2018 and when you meet a contractor whose workmanship is excellent and the communication is great which truly makes a World of difference, we had to hire him again to do our driveway strips. We couldn't be happier with the end result and we're grateful as well for his pro team brushing the backyard turf and fixing a spot where some weeds grew. Four years later, the turf still looks good as new. Highly recommend!!!

And he also took care of his workers who worked on our driveway on Saturday. Happy employees are a great indicator of an outstanding boss which ultimately, makes this company simply, the best!" - Kten M.

Recent Negative Review:

they had to reinstall the turf a few times because it kept wrinkling. Was not a fan of that. However, they did reach out to the manufacturer and got it done finally (after I believe 2 months). I gave them a 4/5 mostly because they solved the problem and actually did what they said they were going to do." - Tro J.

Greenview Turf

GreenView Turf

Client Ratings:

  • Yelp: 5 Stars
  • Google: 3.4 Stars

Recent Positive Review:

"Excellent! No one wanted to take my job, we have stairs, it was on a hill, it was a nightmare to the other 5 turf companies that came out but not to Albert from Greenview turf, he came to look it over, explained the process and showed me samples, that was last week and now I have a beautiful lawn and hillside. What's amazing is that they showed up at 7 am and brought a crew of 12 guys that worked beautifully together and finished our job by 5 pm same day! I already give their number to 2 of my neighbors.." - Tony R. 

Link to Client Review

Recent Negative Review:

"I really wanted to love my new turf, but unfortunately, I had a really bad and unprofessional experience with Albert and his team. During the installation (which seemed pretty rushed), the crew broke 2 of the garden lights in my front yard, which are wired below the grass. While this was an annoyance, how Albert dealt with it was even more frustrating. He insisted it was a "bad build" even though the entire house was just inspected and all the lights worked perfectly for 3 months in my new home until the exact day my turf was installed. Obviously not a coincidence. When I asked Albert to come back and fix it, he initially indicated that he would the following week, but now I can't even get him to respond to me. Considering I spent $8K for a one-day install from a supposed top-end company, I'd expect more professionalism than being flat-out ignored by my request to fix 2 lights the install team broke.

Hope others have better luck than me." - Matt K.

Recent Positive Review:

"Philip came out and did an estimate even though I was able to be home. I never physically met him, but he had great communication and was always responsive. His quote came in very competitive and I just had a good feeling about his work.

His crew showed up on time and they did the job quickly, efficiently, and on budget. Everything was great and his billing was easy. They left everything really clean and kept. I would totally recommend him and this business." - Brian B.

Recent Negative Review:

"Don't waste your time! Had Philip come by on Nov 11 for a quote. He was at my house for about 30 minutes going over the ins and outs of the potential job. He showed me numerous different turfs. Promised he would send me a quote the next morning, after speaking to his foreman- and it's been a week and he completely ghosted me. If you didn't want the job for any reason, you could have said so? And no quote in the junk mail either. Don't waste your time scheduling a consult, and waiting around for an appointment, just to have a company make zero follow up with a quote. There are a million other turf companies who will respect your time and money more than Cal Green Turf." - Michelle N.

"Very pleased with the work these guys did. Also, it was finished in only 2 days. Jason was easy to work with, & great communication. Cost was lower than another quote received, and even though it was an expensive job, we feel we got good value. Looks beautiful, and our dog LOVES it." - Allan F.

Link to Client Review

Recent Negative Review:

"I scheduled an appointment with RC Artificial Grass to come and give me an estimate for my front lawn. They gave me the appointment a week in advance only to find out less than 30 minutes before the actual appointment that they need to reschedule because there was a mix-up on their end. Of course, I was not happy about this but I message them back right away to see if they could come the next day. They didn't respond to me until 3 days later via message, they don't even have the decency to call me and apologize everything was through email or a yelp message. In my opinion, they are unprofessional and I'm glad I took my business elsewhere. If you want professionalism I suggest finding someone else." - Naomi P.

Link to Client Review

Background Check (License, Insurance): 

It does not appear that RC Artificial Grass has its license number or insurance information readily available and listed on its website. Upon searching for their company name on CSLB to verify licensing we were unable to find them. This may mean they're operating under a DBA and makes it very difficult for prospective clients to confirm.

"I can't say enough positive things about Ecograss. Rey came out and gave us a very fair price for the project we wanted done. He returned calls and texts immediately and let us keep some samples so we could make a no pressured choice on the height of the turf. The crew did a fabulous, meticulous job. They paid attention to every installation detail, we had to install the turf around existing paving stones. We also wanted to add a platform for our fire pit; they brought the complimentary stones, set them, and fit the turf around them. We are beyond pleased!" - Barbara R.

Recent Negative Review:

"I have lost my patience !!! We worked with Shane, selected EcoTurf and although they werent the best priced, we were sold on the warranty they offered. Everything was fine, he arrived on time, answered all my questions. We had a few hiccups during the install but his installers were super prompt in addressing our concerns and everything was corrected. Ok...fast forward a year and a half later, my turf has lifted, the seam has separated and it's no longer on a flat leveled surface. I reached out to Shane via text March 5th, he sent someone to take a look at it and it was given a supposed fix. April 23, same issue so Shane told us that the warranty would cover, he had to submit the claim but due to Covid, we might have a delay. May 18th - another text was sent to Shane, he stated he was still awaiting a response from the warranty claim. July 1st, 2020- another text to Shane with him replying that he would just cover the replacement himself thru a different turf company, he would order the replacement and contact us when ready. Here we are August 11th, sent a text for an update - no reply. August 13th called the office, Michael took a message and still no call back.

All these great reviews posted on the initial experience, sale and install but give it a few months, and no longer the same experience. An almost $8000 purchase in crap quality and service..." - Liliana P.

Very professional and efficient company. I just had my old artificial turf removed after 16 years and replaced it with "Sequoia turf" by Desert Turf. My backyard looks amazing and my 2 dogs love their new grass. They cleaned up my backyard after the installation. Good efficient crew. My salesperson Chelsea was very informative and Ysa-logistics came out to my home and went over the contract. Very professional staff. I contacted 4 other companies on Yelp and 2 were "no show", 1 said my job was too small & one contacted me 2 weeks later which was too late. I highly recommend Desert Turf to anyone and they have been in business for years in their construction division." Dee B.

Recent Negative Review:

"We have a small backyard and wanted to have turf there before festive season so that we can have the planned event there. We contacted Jerry and after a lot of follow up, got the date for installation which was almost 15 days before our planned event. We were told that it's a small job and will be done in less than a day. Before signing the contract we asked Jerry if they can remove a small tree and put a bender board around that place which he agreed for additional $275.
The installation guys showed up on the planned day and started working. But it looked like the work was never ending. It took them 5 days to finish the job which was terrible. There were seams in-between the turf, not leveled properly, bender board was too low and a few places left. We asked the installer that it is not acceptable and we need this to be fixed. He said he will ask Jerry how to fix and get back to us and left. My backyard was a mess. We never heard from Jerry afterwards for a long time and we couldn't have our event in backyard and couldn't use the backyard due to the mess.

Then almost a month later, Jerry called us and rudely asked that we haven't paid for the turf. We told him that we were waiting for his call and fix. Then he sent some contractor to have a look. The contractor agreed that it was a mess and took another half day to remove and re-fix things. He apologized for the trouble we have gone thru and said that he is waiving off the $275 for three and additional bender board. We asked him to confirm with  accounting. After couple of hours we got call from them that we can pay the contracted amount for turf and no need to pay the tree and additional bender board. We paid the amount immediately.

Next day Jerry called us and instead of being apologetic about all this mess, started talking rudely that we haven't paid full amount. We told him to check with his team since they only told us not to pay that additional amount.  
Then he started threatening us that he will put a lien on our property and we will have pay much more in legal fees etc. if we don't pay." - Gagan B.

Recent Positive Review:

"You never know what to expect when you have a huge job at your new house with a team you’ve never worked with before. Well, if your plans include installing artificial turf that looks better than real grass, STOP RIGHT NOW AND HIRE INSTALLARTIFICIAL! Not only were they the most responsive installer I’ve worked with in years, but they went truly above and beyond. My yard is challenging with trees, planters, irrigation, speaker wires, and electrical wires and they protected everything (and often improved on its previous appearance) seamlessly. The finished job is far better than I could have ever imagined, and I actually miss having the crew here in my backyard. Yes, they are that nice, respectful, dedicated, hard-working, and skilled. Literally, if I could give them 100 stars, I would!

And as you can see below, my new dog is a truly happy boy with his new yard!" - Gale H.

His service guy was stuck somewhere else, which happens, but you call the customer to let them know. You don't wait for them to call you. John you're a nice guy, which is why you got 2 stars instead of 1, but you lost a customer." - Tyler B.
