Project involved removal of recycled turf, new yard design and backyard sports field.


Ecoturf Inc., Temecula, California, recently installed 25,000 square feet of SGW's Everglade Fescue Light and Multiplay Sport in this spacious backyard. Both products offer a drainage rate of 30+ inches of rain per hour per square yard and has a dual coloring of field green and olive green. The products look and feel like natural grass. All of SGW's products are certified as lead free and free of dioxin emissions.

The homeowners of the featured backyard wanted a drip system landscaping in their large front and backyard that is low-maintenance and would save them money long term. Initially, they had a turf installation on their property already, however the previous installation was made from recycled turf that the homeowners decided did not compliment their home well. They were referred to Ecoturf who removed the original artificial grass, designed the new yard, and installed the new synthetic turf products.

After the removal of the original turf and excavating 50 tons of dirt, the installation was split into two stages--the front yard and the sports field in the backyard. Westin Brousseau, the owner of Ecoturf Inc., found this project to be a challenging yet satisfying project.

"The biggest challenge was stretching the turf in long sections and making sure there were no dips where there were hills. We had to make sure it was all leveled out," he says. Brousseau and his team worked diligently to make the large front yard artificial grass installation look seamless, natural, and complementary to the existing landscape.

The second stage was making a sports field for their children who are active soccer players at their high school and college. A retaining wall was built to bring up the elevation 10 feet to combat the hilly landscape.

Ecoturf, Inc. takes pride in designing and installing low-maintenance, water-wise landscape, including artificial turf, all over Southern California. Brousseau wanted his company to be involved with the whole process of landscaping for a client and provide clients a full plan of what they'll be doing. "Ecoturf takes on the whole project--designing, installing, and planting," says Brousseau. "Everyone on the team enjoys what they do, beautifying and making spaces more functional for people."
