Screen Room Backyard Ponte Vedra Beach

Screen rooms are a fantastic place for the whole family to relax in the buggy Florida outdoors.  The screenroom enclosure will also keep the many leaves off of the turf.

Synthetic grass is a great complement to this homeowner’s outside space. He also installed trex decking boards horizontally on the brick wall for a truly updated coastal feel.

A summer kitchen was built as well.  Base construction was important for drainage.

The chosen artificial turf for the yard is Challenger Turf ST 82 summer blend.

Looking forward to visiting this customer in the evening for a barbeque and cold brew!IMG_20160820_162845


No Man’s Land Denver Colorado

Behind many garages and houses in Denver exist a no man’s land where natural sod has a riduculous time growing.

Often in full sun or shade and with down spouts draining upon the areas, sod will never get a foothold.

This small area was revamped with FieldTurf EasyTurf product. The sprinklers remained and were raised to offer a quick rinse for smells and cooling for the pets’ tender feet.

Also a concrete pad was installed for the propane cylinders to set upon

Timuquana Animal Hospital for Dr. Cox

Collins Turf Division handled the installation of the synthetic turf system that Dr. Cox chose and purchased.

The two yards are great, clean areas for the doggy patients to relax before and after surgery at the animal hospital.

The cleanout system was left accessible. Rock mulch in three different sizes complements the turf and also reduces the square footage of the more expensive synthetic turf pet system.

Synthetic grass between pavers

synthetic turf between pavers Jacksonville Florida


After a recent large turf installation on Davis Island in Tampa, Fl, we worked with Jimmy Holloway, of Holloway Pools, with some turf to go in between his company’s cast stone installation.  The turf is a great alternative to any other material in between pavers, as it is durable and need little maintenance.  Turf jobs of this type require more time than materials, as there are a couple of seams at every intersection.  The turf is also staked into the dry tamped sub-base of the cast stones ensuring that it will remain in place throughout any storms this waterfront house may endure. The hardest part was keeping the work crew out of Holloway Pool’s Infinity Edge hot tub!  We used synthetic turf remnants for this installation.

Landscape Turf front yard Denver

Synthetic turf is a good option for areas that homeowners want to remain aesthetically pleasing, and in areas that are difficult to maintain. This home on Federal Boulevard has a steep hill in the front yard that was difficult to keep grass alive. The steep hill also had a diseased chinese elm tree.  After the homeowner had the tree removed, we brought in the recycled concrete sub-base and turf.  We cut in several large rocks to give it a realistic look.  The only maintenance required is occasional blowing of leaves and trash off with a leaf blower.  We were hoping Denver Water would give a rebate for the conversion to synthetic turf, but they did not offer any help.  Synthetic turf with thatch.

Reducing yard costs, keeping kids clean and working on your short game!

Synthetic turf landscape putting green playground


This Mandarin backyard was designed for a family that has several active children of their own and likes to have the whole Julington Creek neighborhood over to play on their turf. By design, the customers’ idea was to place the synthetic turf close to their endless pool. The previous yard was highly shaded and a little muddy.  After Collins Turf replaced the entire backyard with one color monofilament synthetic turf to remind them of the native grass in Canada, the costs of the backyard were reduced, and the family noticed a significant amount of savings on their water bill, and lessened yard maintenance through the summer.

The yard has two large playsets, 3 nylon putting greens, with envy of the neighborhood, several brown rubber mulch beds, and approximately 4,000 square feet of synthetic,landscape, plush grass turf.

synthetic turf putting green with flags and chipping mat


This 1200 square foot custom nylon putting masterpiece green was installed next to the driveway to get the visitors attention as they drive into a Collins Turf Division golfscape. It screams, “Welcome To Golf USA, Jacksonville, FL!” As long as there’s no parking on the dancefloor! A chipping mat allows short bump and runs and then golfers can turn around and tee off the other direction towards the sand filled green along the intracoastal near. This provides a variety of shots right in the backyard! Make sure to visit Barbara Jean’s if you’re in the area.

This Palm Valley, FL customer’s trophy green was installed throughout the winter of 2010.  When the project was finally completed, the customer had a 2500 square foot sand filled green that boasted 9 lighted holes and numbered flags.  The large synthetic grass apron features a kettle bunker left and large ball grabbing bunker in the front.  There are a few options for chipping to this green from the large synthetic turf driving/chipping mats we installed.  An entire party could putt around this green with room to spare.
