What Is Artificial Grass Made Of?

Traditional artificial turf is made from a combination of nylon, polypropylene, and polyethylene. It includes a backing system and, in some cases, a rubber crumb infill. SYNLawn Bay Area artificial turf is free of rubber crumb infill, is the first to be made with plant-based materials, and is manufactured PFAS-free with materials derived from sugar cane and renewable soybeans!

How Long Does Artificial Grass Last?

Traditional synthetic grass is designed to last anywhere from 15 to 20 years or less. This is dependent on the quality of the materials that are used, proper installation techniques, the technologies that it is manufactured with, and the level of foot traffic it will have to endure. SYNLawn Bay Area artificial grass can last customers a lifetime with minimal effort and is backed by an unmatched warranty.

Is Artificial Grass Safe for Children and Pets?

Synthetic turf is a safer alternative to conventional grass for pets and children. In most cases, it has been developed to help keep them both healthy and clean. Our SYNLawn synthetic grass is coated with Sanitized® antimicrobial, which is proven to eliminate up to 99% of bacteria. We also ensure that we meet high commercial safety standards to help protect them from injury.

Does Artificial Grass Get Hot?

During the summer and in warmer regions, synthetic grass tends to absorb heat. Nevertheless, manufacturers have introduced advancements to mitigate this issue. SYNLawn provides exclusive HeatBlock technology, which has been proven to help keep surfaces up to 20% cooler compared to other turf options by effectively countering heat emissivity.
