Our Clients


Video Experiencies


At Veronica Sanchez’s house they trusted in Realturf because they were advised by friends who already had it installed and were very satisfied.

“We have two dogs and a child and we wanted to make the most of the garden, to make the most of all the spaces and it looks very nice and harmonious.

Of the advantages of artificial grass, he highlights the fact that it does not need so much water, that it is perfect all year round and its durability.

“We chose the Trevi model because of the drainage, as we have two puppies and it was something that worried me a lot. And the truth is that I’m very happy with it, we only water it from time to time to clean up dirt.”

Verónica recommends the installed artificial grass 100%, “for saving water, making the most of the space in the garden and because aesthetically it looks better than you would expect. I am very happy with the result, I would do it again”.

As a company you can’t ask for more than that your clients want to trust you again.

Irene Rosales

Irene Rosales and her experience with Realturf.

Irene highlights that she decided to use artificial grass because it was the best option for her garden, “aesthetically it is much nicer than natural grass and it doesn’t require so much maintenance”.

According to Irene, in a place with children and pets, the most important thing is to create a space where they can enjoy themselves safely, which is why she chose Realturf.

She highlights Realturf’s “trust, quality, advice and speed of assembly”. He chose the model because of “its good drainage and recovery when stepped on or when any object is placed on it”.

“The result has been magnificent aesthetically because it gives a lot of light, green and joy, seeing it so beautiful, you want to use it more and be in the garden all day”.

“I am very happy with both the service and the product, I thought it was going to look good but the result was better than expected.”

At Realturf we love to see our customers satisfied with their artificial grass.

In Monica’s case, they trusted Realturf because “they are manufacturers and that guarantees you that they know their product very well, and on the other hand, they have branches all over the world and distributors all over Spain, so it was super easy and super fast for them to install it for us”.

For Monica, when it came to choosing her artificial grass model, it was important that it looked natural and that it was antibacterial because she has pets. They chose our Terranova model.

She highlights many advantages of artificial grass, firstly the low maintenance cost, “there is no need for a gardener, no watering, no fertilisers, nothing”.

“The house has a different look, the lawn has added a lot of value, it generates another colour, another look, the children are using it a lot. We have gained a lot of land that was unusable and now we can use it. We are all delighted.

In conclusion Monica told us: “My experience has been wonderful, the installation has been perfect and I don’t have to worry about anything else”.

Fran Alcazar is one of the founding partners and trainer of the Nexxo Life centre, a health and personalised training centre in Malaga.

They chose artificial turf for the design of the training room because it was the material that best suited the use and design they wanted to give to the room.

According to Fran, “the result is great, people are very happy and comfortable when they are training and that is the most important thing, and aesthetically it is incredible.”

“As for the endurance of the grass, the traffic here is very high, more than 300 people a day can pass through, a lot of people lying down, the material that slides on the grass, we have sleds, a lot of things that fall on the grass, and it is maintained as the first day.”

He also points out that as far as maintenance is concerned, it is very easy to maintain, no specific maintenance is needed, just scrubbing and little else.

The evaluation of Realturf, “a 10 for both the result in terms of visual appearance and the satisfaction of the users, everyone is very happy and we are the first ones”.
