ALL WARRANTIES ARE NOT ACTIVE UNTIL FINAL PAYMENT IS RECEIVED IN FULL.
THREE YEAR LABOR WARRANTY
Tough Turtle Turf warrants our synthetic turf for limited twenty-five (25) years and three (3) year labor warranty from the date of synthetic turf installation (the “Warranty”) when it is installed and maintained as recommended by the turf manufacturer and Tough Turtle Turf’s attached recommendations. If any area or portion of the installed turf substantially changes, as distinguished from a change in texture after its initial installation, Tough Turtle Turf will have all such substantially changed areas or portions replaced, excluding installation costs. Tough Turtle Turf also warrants that at the time of the initial turf installation, the synthetic turf will be free of manufacturing defects. Slight color changes will occur over the lifetime of this turf and turf seems may be visible, and neither color changes nor visible turf seems shall be considered a warranty issue or basis for a claim. All labor costs involved with the removal of the affected turf and reinstallation of the replacement will be the responsibility of the Owner. Any replacements, patches, or repairs may result in a color difference as each iteration of the turf will have varying dye-lots available. Tough Turtle Turf will do it’s best to color-match, however there may be a difference in color, which may even out over time, but is not guaranteed.
This Warranty expressly excludes the following:
- Damage from accidents, force majeure, abuse, and neglect from other than normal and ordinary use of this product.
- Damage resulting from failure to maintain the product in accordance with the maintenance instructions provided to the Owner.
- Vandalism, fire, floods, explosion, earthquake, tornado, hurricane, war, riot, sabotage, or other acts of God.
- Normal matting, wear and tear, and settling of the base or turf and all other issues related to the subbase that may occur from work completed by others prior to the job start. Examples of this are trenching, drain work, tree removal, improper underlay, pile crushing, etc.
- Damage caused by other parties or contractors after the installation of the turf or putting green is complete.
- Damage resulting from repair, or attempted repair, by anyone other than a Tough Turtle Turf installer.
- Pet odor and/or damage purposefully or accidentally inflicted by pets, humans, or any other animals, including damage by machinery or equipment.
- Damage caused by excessive heat, including the effect of the sun’s energy magnified by glass, any reflective surfaces (melting) or other flammable materials (i.e., fire pits, grills, heaters, etc.).
- Drainage and all other issues related to drainage that may occur from work completed by others prior to the job start;
- Damage resulting from leaving sprinklers uncapped (which is against the recommendation of Tough Turtle Turf).
- Growth of mushrooms, fungus, weeds, including but not limited to: Bermuda, Nut Sage, Crab Grass, or any other type of growth that grows beneath, through or on top of the turf. (Please see final page of warranty for weed management.)
- Damaged caused by Owner’s willful or negligent conduct.

Tough Turtle Turf Recommendations
Behind concrete, our artificial turf is the lowest maintenance hard or landscape product you can install within your yard. General upkeep for artificial turf includes brooming, blowing, or raking, and occasional rinsing and replenishment of the infill sand. General maintenance will not harm these products. Heavy foot or pet traffic can create a matted blade effect. From time to time, you will want to broom or rake the turf to make certain that the blades stand tall. When brooming or raking becomes ineffective this may be an optimal time to consider replenishment of the infill sand. A leaf blower can be utilized to blow off any leaves or dust and garden hose to rinse off any stubborn debris. During hot summer months, you may want to use a garden hose to cool the turf. Unlike natural grass, artificial turf does not retain moisture and will feel hot to the touch in extreme heat.
Cleaning up after your pets is easy with our artificial turf, simply scoop up any solids and then rinse with water. If the deodorizer infill applied during the original installation appears to be losing its durability, a biodegradable, smell inhibiting disinfectant can be applied. Products like these are readily found at local pet supply or hardware stores. Pet odor will be determined by the number and size of your pets, square footage of your project, and whether this is their primary relief area if they are walked consistently. Weed fabric is not installed on projects where pet deodorizer is requested as the fabric will eventually saturate and overwhelm the deodorizer in-fill sand (See WEEDS tab for additional information).
In addition to the base materials we install, our artificial turf is a weed barrier and deterrent. Our artificial turf is far more resistant to weed growth than sod or soil. All projects, outside of pet jobs (see PET ODOR), have a 15-year, commercial-grade weed fabric installed below the base material installation. However, this weed fabric cannot be tucked under-slab overpour or wall footings so the transition between our artificial turf and adjacent surfaces remains the most susceptible to weed growth. Regular application of a weed deterrent product and the limited exposure to water at these transitions will assure your project maintains that initial installation esthetic. Surface weeds are typically generated from an outside influence. A neighbor not properly maintaining their yard, backing, or being adjacent to an open area, canyon or greenbelt can certainly have a negative influence on surface weeds. Weed growth is not recognized under warranty coverage and is the responsibility of the homeowner/client.
The heat from reflective surfaces including but not limited to windows can cause the quality, integrity, and esthetics of the artificial turf to be compromised and is not covered under warranty. The best way to prevent reflection from windows is to use a window film, screen, coating, or shade. All efforts will be made by the design consultant/salesman and the installation crew to identify potential reflection concerns while on site but due to the change in the location of the sun relative to the time of year Tough Turtle Turf cannot cover window reflection or burns under its warranty umbrella. In the instance that a burn occurs, the affected area can be removed and patched at cost to the Owner once the reflection source is identified and rectified.
