Artificial Grass Installation

How To Install Artificial Grass (The Ecoworkz Way)

We have been passionate enthusiasts of the Artificial Grass Industry for over two decades, refining our knowledge over the years to develop a cutting edge installation process that is unrivaled. We back every Artificial Grass Installation with a 3 year workmanship warranty alongside product warranties for up to 16 years. Partnering with the leading manufacturers in the country has given us the ability to offer our customers a wide selection of top of the line materials, assuring that every project will not only be built to last, but will be tailored to fit your specific application.



With our decades of installation experience, we have developed an artificial grass installation process that will eliminate any failures such as sinking, seam separation, wrinkles or weed growth.


Our base layer consists of 2-3″ of Class II road base which will provide sufficient drainage and compaction, thus eliminating any sinking issues or weed growth.


We have developed the industry’s first visually undetectable seam with our Ecoworkz “Zipper Seam”, setting the bar with artificial grass installation techniques worldwide.

Industry Leading Installation Process

We have successfully developed an installation process that will eliminate any of the common failures you see in Artificial Grass Installations such as sinking, seam separation, wrinkles or weed growth. We start by scalping the existing subgrade 2-3″ and add our Class II road base layer that will provide sufficient compaction & drainage for water and pet waste as well as protect against sinking issues and weed growth. Next, our weed barrier layer will eliminate any other chance of weed growth as well as provide sufficient drainage. Using our signature Zipper Seam, we will seam and secure your turf with 5″ “non-galvanized” steel nails that will lock your it into the base layer by forming a rust ball on the end of the nail from the natural moisture in the ground. This will eliminate any separation that you will get from Seam Tape and Glue Seams. And last, the infill layer of your choice (Sand, Durafill or Zeolite for pets depending on your application) will provide a sufficient base layer to hold the turf blades up while reducing the heat and harm that would come from using black crumb rubber instead. Our Artificial Grass Installation process has proven to be the best in the industry, with thousands of successful installations across Southern California.

Zipper Seam

We have developed the industry’s first visually undetectable seam. The Ecoworkz Zipper Seam looks just like it sounds.  It’s “zipper” shape uses a binary, staggered seam cut which actually creates an optical illusion!   The human eye (or brain, actually) is tricked into not being able to detect a continuous line vertically, or horizontally at the adjoining seams.  Thanks to science and the resulting trick played on your brain, our seams disappear before the eye!  It may be a little more difficult than other seaming methods, but the superior end result is worth the added effort for our customers.  For this reason, we use this seaming method as standard on all of our installations.
