With constant rainfall in the Pacific Northwest, homeowners are searching for a landscaping alternative that is low-maintenance and mud-free. Artificial grass and synthetic putting greens offer a quick drainage rate, making it the perfect choice for Oregon landscapes.
Pro Turf Landscape Solutions recently installed 1,600 square feet of Poly Putt 2-Tone, Everlast Pet Turf, and Everlast Cascade at a lakefront home in Lake Oswego. Poly Putt 2-Tone features dual coloring of field and lime green textured polyethylene and is a premier choice putting green among certified installers nationwide. Everlast Pet Turf showcases a color blend of field and olive green with a pile height of one inch, pairing nicely around the lower height of Poly Putt. Cascade finishes off the installation with a high performance “M” blade shape designed to endure substantial foot traffic.
The homeowners were looking for a low-maintenance landscape alternative with a personal putting green course. As a ranked golfer and part of the local country club, it was essential to have a playable putting green with PGA-rated speeds. Their lakefront yard is also a floating promenade, meaning the installation needed to drain and dry quickly to prevent sinking.
During the artificial grass installation, Pro Turf Landscape Solutions transported equipment through narrow property lines with a conveyor belt and worked hard to meet the city’s strict environmental standards. According to Pro Turf owner, Ron Rios, the team had to mix the artificial grass infill to ensure the putting green was at the perfect speed. “The installation was challenging, but it was a satisfying one to complete,” Rios said. “I couldn’t have done it without my team or my right-hand man, Mac Hormann, who was always there to make sure things got done right.”
Rios prides his company in excellent customer service with high-quality installations for artificial grass, putting greens, and hardscapes. According to Rios, “It’s all about the experience and process of the installations for the clients.” Rios and his team want their clients to be included in the process and enjoy the installation experience as much as they will enjoy their installation at the end of the project.
Pro Turf Landscape Solutions was founded in September 2007 and has grown steadily ever since. Rios finds the growth bittersweet because he enjoys having a personal connection with his clients. “Our team is so involved with each client, but I will always want to meet them and see their vision as well,” says Rios. Although the featured installation is Oregon based, Pro Turf is based in Oceanside, CA and does most of their installs in the San Diego and Orange County.
Pro Turf Landscape Solutions is Synthetic Grass Warehouse Install of the Month winner for October 2018.
