"Set up the appointment and they didn't show. I had to take time away from work to be home which was a complete waste of time. I called and spoke to John who was extremely apologetic and polite. 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.

"David Vega and his crew (11 crew guys) did an amazing job on replacing and updating our old 17 yr old artificial turf.  We had 2100 sq feet of turf to replace, his crew was was on time everyday, were clean and considerate throughout the entire job time which lasted 3 days. I received multiple bids and David's bid was the best and included more to offer (drains, new bender boards, etc.) than the other bids. In the end I was very impressed how professional David and his crew was. I highly recommend them for price and quality." - TIm W.

Recent Negative Review:

While the product looked great -- I just had the grass removed approx a year following installation...I was assured by the kind and attendance saleswoman that she had also had dogs and the yard was safe, durable, cost effective, would not turn yellow, and most importantly was easy to manage and keep fresh and clean. This is where I feel extremely deceived. My grass was an unusable, bacteria filled, pungent, hole in my yard that would constantly smell. Especially when the sun hit the blades...Forget being cost effective. It was a constant source of embarrassment and required constant management ...If you have pets and actually want to use the yard. Stay away. It's a waste of $$$. I felt very deceived by the product and I just had it removed from my yard." - Alex K.

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.

"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.

From the beginning, Lucas did a great job of helping us envision and design what the space could become, walking us through the full process to get us comfortable, and staying in touch throughout to make sure the job was done well and how we imagined. On the day of, the crew showed up on time (even early!) and were very communicative at each step to make sure we were all on the same page. Once finished with the project, they walked through everything with us to make sure it was to our liking." - Dillon S.

"I've never been more insulted in my life by a Ruff N Tuff sales person. She came out and asked me how much I thought I would cost, and I asked her and she said, very abruptly, "$6,000". I said well that's a bit much for a 20x20 yard isn't it? She says "well, it's 4000 if you signed today". I told her "no you're not going to close the deal today, I need a written proposal and we'll go over it later." She never sent the proposal, never contacted me again. These people are rip offs, out to get as much money as they can while the market is hot." - Mike H.

Andy listened to my vision, drew it on paper and gave me exactly what I envisioned. He was polite, friendly and always answered my calls. Their crew of installers were top notch.

"The owner is super rude, just called for a quote and him to come out and give me a price. He replied $9 a square foot that is my quote. I understand we are in pandemic but no reason to say things I don't want to waste my coming out if your not going to use me. WOW actually I was ready to get this done ASAP but why give business to people like that." - Hinesh P.

"First we put in artificial turf. It was so nicely done and no mess, that we  added another area
When we wanted outdoor lighting we went back again. Peter gave great advice, was very patient and managed to get parts in a reasonable time. Unfortunately our gardener cut some wires reducing the voltage to the furthest connections. It took many hours to diagnose  and remedy the problem. But is was resolved and at no additional cost to us. That is REAL SERVICE.  Thank you.  You deserve the Highest Rating" - Marshall R.

Recent Negative Review:

"I don't write reviews, but I feel compelled to write one here. I would avoid this place at all costs. With so many other companies around, you will have a much better experience somewhere else. I'm extremely disappointed. One would expect when you have certain hours of operation, a person would be on site. Also, when you talk to the owner and he tells you one thing, but something else takes place, it doesn't give you a whole lot of confidence. Ultimately it is up to you whether you go here, but my experience would yield a hard pass." - Jeff S.

"Five Star Turf is the company to go to for premium artificial grass and installation. We had two small patches in our backyard that needed turf. Their rep came out and measured accurately and gave us a great price on the product and installation. The installers were on time, kept the area clean and really paid attention to detail when tucking it up to some flagstone we had it butting up to. Everyone thinks its real grass, it looks and feels great! Definitely would recommend this company to friends and family." - Elizabeth L.

Recent Negative Review:

"Contact was prompt and James was quick to bring over quality samples and set an almost immediate install date.  The quality of the turf is good and I love how it looks, however, install left much to be desired (they left a giant pile of dirt and rocks on my street, uncovered, which cars ran through and I had to sweep up at 7 am before they arrived the next day). It was scheduled to be a one-day job for my small square courtyard but they got there late so it took two. Not a problem other than the pile of dirt, but what was most disappointing is they assured me the yard would be level, (we had a slight dip in the middle), but the installers made no effort to level the yard. Still find it annoying daily since we can't quite use the un-level space as we had hoped." - Julie K.

"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.

N/A

Background Check (License, Insurance): 

Pacific Coast Turf and Landscape does not feature their licensing info on the website that we can find, meaning it's not easily accessible to prospective clients. Upon searching their name on CSLB we also struggled to find information. This may mean they're operating under a DBA, but makes it tricky for homeowners to check licensing. 

Appearance in Local Search:

The online presence of Pacific Coast Turf is minimal, with no listing at all on Yelp. It does not appear they participate in search engine ad listings. While this company appears to be new within the area, their high client reviews earned them a spot on our list.
