SYNLawn Austin shares details on some of the frequently asked questions we receive about our incredible Austin, TX, artificial grass. Learn more below:

What Is Artificial Turf Made Of?

Artificial grass is often designed with materials including polypropylene, polyethylene, and nylon. It also features a backing system that secures turf fibers to prevent shedding and lawn shifting. At SYNLawn Austin, our artificial grass is the first to be manufactured with plant-based materials such as sugarcane and soybean oil. Even our backing system is made from renewable soybeans! Compared to competing turf brands, SYNLawn turf is made from substantially higher quality materials and is the only plant-based artificial grass in the industry.

How Long Does Artificial Turf Last?

On average, artificial turf will last 10–20 years. This is dependent on the quality of materials that are utilized to manufacture the turf, the turf’s resilience to activity and heavy foot traffic, and the quality of the installation. Thankfully, at SYNLawn Austin, our team offers top-quality, highly durable synthetic grass made from first-rate materials. It is thanks to our Super Yarn technology and EnviroLoc+ backing system that we can offer some of the longest-lasting turf on the market that can last 20+ years thanks to our exclusive technologies and precision installation services. We are so confident in the durability of our turf that we offer an unmatched LIFETIME warranty!

Is Artificial Grass Safe for Children and Pets?

Synthetic grass is safer for children and pets. However, cheap turf imported from China may not abide by the same strict safety standards found in U.S. manufacturing. SYNLawn Austin artificial grass is hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, drains up to 1,200 inches per hour with SYNLawn exclusive SuperDrain+, and is free of harsh pesticides, chemicals, and heavy metals.

Will Artificial Grass Get Hot?

Some synthetic turf can become warmer in the summer or in warmer climates. Depending on the materials it is made from, it can become warmer than conventional grass. However, SYNLawn Austin synthetic grass is designed to be the coolest on the market. With our exclusive HeatBlock and DualChill IR reflective technology, our artificial turf stays up to 20% cooler than many other turf brands. We also offer a couple of infill options that will further provide cooler lawn temperatures.

Does Artificial Turf Fade Over Time?

Fading is relative to the quality and materials that are used to manufacture artificial turf. If they are low quality, they are more likely to fade faster. Thankfully, we offer UV-stabilized yarns that reflect UV and infrared rays to resist fading year-round. Our DualChill technology keeps infrared light from reducing the green allure of our products.

Is Artificial Grass Environmentally Friendly?

Artificial grass is generally considered to be an eco-friendly solution to conventional grass. This is because it does not require gas-powered lawn equipment or watering to keep it looking its best. SYNLawn Austin artificial turf can save customers up to 70% on their water bill, significantly reduces carbon emissions, and can avoid ending up in a local landfill. We can proudly recycle our synthetic grass and utilize it for future turf and projects.

SYNLawn Austin synthetic grass is also the ONLY plant based artificial grass on the local market, made from sugar cane and soybean oil. We also offer the largest collection of USDA-certified turf options for the use of plant-based materials.

Are There Any New Technologies in Artificial Grass Production?

In today’s market, there are many turf technologies that can aid in keeping your luxury lawn looking and performing at its fullest potential. SYNLawn has instilled more than 50 years of research and development into our artificial grass in Austin, TX.

Are There Sustainable or Eco-Friendly Options for Artificial Grass?

At SYNLawn Austin, there are many options for sustainable artificial grass. There is a growing demand for earth-friendly and sustainable turf options. This is why we replace anywhere from 60 to 80% of petroleum-based materials with soybeans and other plant-based materials. This has allowed us to become the first and only provider of USDA-certified synthetic turf in the area.

How Does Artificial Grass Contribute to Water Conservation?

Artificial turf does not require watering to keep it alive. At the most, you can rinse it off with a hose or use a blower to remove debris. SYNLawn Austin synthetic grass helps to conserve up to 70% of your monthly water consumption that is spent on lawn care. It is specifically beneficial for states that have strict water usage due to drought conditions, such as Texas.

What Is the Latest in Artificial Grass for Sports Fields or Playgrounds?

Artificial turf is being adopted by playgrounds, schools, sports facilities, and more. It is a perfect solution to traditional grass as it remains beautiful year-round and can greatly increase safety. SYNLawn Austin playground turf and athletic turf is IPEMA-certified, proven to prevent common injuries, cushion falls up to 10 feet, and has exceptional shock absorption capabilities.
