Recent Negative Review:

"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.

Recent Positive Review:

"Kyle and his team did in amazing job with our turf project. We installed 3500 square feet with a 400 sq ft putting green. From design phase to installation, they did an excellent job. Quality and craftsmanship is rare and hard to find these days. Biltright performed the installation with pride in their work and we are amazed with the results." - Justin H.

Recent Negative Review:

Buyer Beware, stay away! Easy turf does not stand behind the poor quality of their material or workmanship. I had problems with my turf nearly immediately once it was installed. Weeds grew through all throughout and the bender board broke and the grass became misplaced. Easy turf refused to extend efforts to correct these issues. They made excuses about my sales person going into retirement and then later told me the person we were communicating with was no longer there. Cob Street gave me a call and promised he would follow up and never did. Spent years getting the runaround and cannot recommend this company. Don't fall for the paid reviews." - Kim P.

Background Check (License, Insurance): 

Biltirght Turf has licensing number readily available in the footer of their website as well as on their yelp page. This licensing is current and active. 

Appearance in Local Search:

Biltright Turf is a paid advertiser on Yelp's listings. Most of Biltrights traffic from google comes from organic traffic but they do also have some paid boosted keywords to bring their site higher in local rankings. However, their presence on google is still pushed down by large national artificial grass companies. Keep this in mind, and make sure to browse through several pages of listings to find the best local installers!

"We worked with Bo (and Brianna as Bo had travel during our install) at TopTurf as well as a crew who did the actual work on site. Nothing but good things to say about all we interacted with from Top Turf. Very communicative as plans changed and obstacles arose, they were honest about best actions and costs. We're so incredibly happy and can't wait to spend the summer in our new backyard!" - Claire J.

Recent Negative Review:

"We had a contractor come out, listen to our ideas, and do measurements of our yard. We were told we'd receive a quote the following week. We still have not received any quote despite reaching out to the contractor multiple times. Why is it so hard for companies to follow through?" - Jay P.

Appearance in Local Search:

They were open to suggestions and any changes we would request, always with a smile on the face. They did thorough clean up end of work day and end of the project. We are so happy with out new turf and could not have asked for a better Company or crew to work with. Would highly recommend them!" - Nirav S.

Recent Negative Review:

After 14 years re doing my front yard irrigation. I discovered So Cal Synthetic Greens left "open butt" sprinkler lines, and broke off pvc pipes to my sprinklers instead of doing the industry standard and capping the system underneath my synthetic turf lawn. I had to pay over $2k to find the leaks and repair them in my front yard. Not to mention how much water was wasted and $ paid to the water district over the last 14 years. I called them and they sent out a supervisor. I explained the situation and showed him everything that was done in my yard.  He went back and let me know he would get back to me. I've been waiting since  - no call, no further questions, no offer to reimburse me for the $ spent to fix their negligent work, nothing!

I certainly don't recommend them and would give them zero stars if I could." - Marc P.

  • Yelp: 4.5 Stars
  • Google: 4.5 Stars

Recent Positive Review:

"We're a repeat, satisfied customer of Omega Turf! We had our front yard done in '21 and just finished our backyard in '22. Turf is not cheap - we're in for almost $20K at this point - but the benefits of maintenance, saving water, etc. are amazing. Our kids love the feel of the product - really thick and soft. We got the kind with a little color to it - it's not 100% green blades - so it looks more realistic.

Don is an honest guy. Really responsive with the quote, scheduled the job quickly, and it was done in a couple days." - Neel B.

Recent Negative Review:

"I had my turf installed in 2019 or 2020. Can't remember at this point, the last couple of years are blurred. I'm sure others can relate. Either way,  it's 2022 and the seam is showing in my lawn.  I called Omega to have them address this,  they said they'd send someone out. No one came at the agreed upon time. Chris set up a time for this week on Monday at 10 am. Great.. thought I'd finally get my seam taken care of...10 am Monday came and went... no word from Omega or Chris. I've since sent Chris a text and still have not had a response about this second missed appt. Granted, whining about my seam in my turf lawn sounds awfully entitled compared to the state of affairs in our world.  However,  I paid over $10k for my lawn with the guarantees that came with it. Omega is currently not honoring this.. while I do not like writing this review, I think I've exhausted my other options." - Destiny M.

I appreciate the great communication and the fact that all workers on the job are employed by Green Turf Pro, they do not sub-contract out any of the work! Angel was very informative, and answered all my questions. I did not feel pressured at all. Overall, I would say the pricing and workmanship is top notch!" - Aida H.

Link to Client Review

Recent Negative Review:

"Not great communication.. We had discussed our irrigation and the information did not get passed on to the installers. Fortunately, the installers were helpful in correcting some changes that they made....Although all the people we dealt with from Angie and Liz in the office to the install team were very nice, I think the push to bid low price jobs done as quickly as possible caused the finished project to look like it was the lowest price done quickly." - Pat H.

"After receiving several quotes we chose SLS because 1. The cost was MUCH less than competitors 2. The product was the same if not better looking.  Our salesperson, Dominic, was pleasant, on time and knowledgeable about the product and process.  The job was done in a matter of weeks with payment at the end of the job not several pre-payments as required by some contractors. The installation team came on schedule, kept the place clean and stayed on task.  We had a new lawn in 1 day. I highly recommend you support this local small business." - Victoria P.

Recent Negative Review:

"Saw all the great reviews so I decided to contact them. Apparently they are busier than usual so I understood I had to wait over a week for an appointment. Once they came out I was promised a quote would come in 24-48 hrs, but I never got one. I made several attempts to follow up to get a quote but all my attempts were ignored." - D. R.

We also got a new retention wall which was super well done. Overall Highly recommend them." - Stephanie S.

Recent Negative Review:

Contacted JG Lawn about having artificial grass installed (due to all the 5 stars reviews). It sucks I have to write this review, seriously!!

When I called to get a quote for my front yard, it took Eric (owner's son) several days to come out. When he did, the patches of grass he showed me were low quality, sorta like Walmart Christmas tree type. I have no problem paying more for better durability or brand. He said he would get some better samples tomorrow. I waited for him the next day (and several days after) he was a no show!!" - Aj S.

I couldn’t say enough about how amazing my experience was with Alex and his team. They were extremely professional. Upon initial visit he provided advice on what pavers to use given we have little ones running around. Additionally, he recommended installing lights in the concrete for relaxing ambiance. I have a good sense of character working with people. I must say, he is a solid man of integrity and truly wants his customers to be happy with his team’s work. Highly highly recommended team. Thank you Alex and team for everything you done for us!" - Ikaika L.

"Overall, we were satisfied with the services provided and if 3.5 stars was an option, we would have given that. However, we were not willing to round up to 4 stars....The price was competitive compared to other quotes we received, but now my husband and I wonder if the issues described above would have been resolved by a contractor who charged a bit more." - Marie K.
