The team from SYNLawn Orange County shares detailed information on our artificial grass, addressing some frequently asked questions our customers in Orange County, CA, often have. Learn more about our artificial turf options and services below:
What is Artificial Grass Made Of?
Artificial turf is traditionally made from a combination of nylon, polypropylene, and polyethylene. It is typically held together with a backing system and often includes an infill or rubber crumb.
At SYNLawn Orange County, we are the first company in our area to manufacture synthetic grass with bio-based materials. We replace components like petroleum with renewable materials derived from soybean oil and sugar cane. We do not use rubber crumb infill. Instead, we use an eco-friendly acrylic sand infill called Envirofill® that helps to prevent bacterial growth as well as stains and odors.
How Long Does Artificial Grass Last?
Competing artificial turf brands can last anywhere from 10-20 years or less. If the turf is cheap or the installation is done improperly, you may experience frequent and expensive repairs and may require full lawn replacement only after a few years.
SYNLawn Orange County artificial grass is designed to last 20+ years with minimal effort. This is due to our high-quality materials, precision installation services, exclusive Super Yarn technology, and proprietary EnviroLoc+ backing system.
Is Artificial Grass Safe for Children and Pets?
Synthetic turf is a safer alternative to real grass for both pets and children. Artificial grass does not require pesticides, fertilizers, or harsh chemicals.
Artificial turf from us at SYNLawn Orange County is manufactured PFAS-free, made from sugar cane and soybean oil, coated with Sanitized® antimicrobial, and can include a pet-friendly infill called Envirofill® for enhanced sanitation. This allows for a surface that is free of up to 99% of bacteria. SYNLawn also features up to 20% cooler surface temperatures and soft, non-abrasive surface fibers.
Does Artificial Grass Get Hot?
Although artificial turf can get hot when exposed to sunlight, there are plenty of technologies that have been developed to help combat heat absorption. SYNLawn has developed its own exclusive HeatBlock technology that helps prevent heat buildup. Our turf remains up to 20% cooler than other turf brands on the market with our HeatBlock technology.
Does Artificial Grass Fade Over Time?
Alternative synthetic grass brands can fade over time. At SYNLawn Orange County, many developments have been made to prevent it from fading. Our artificial turf features UV-stabilized fibers and DualChill IR reflective technology to help keep your luxury lawn vibrant all year.
Is Artificial Grass Environmentally Friendly?
Not all artificial grass is the same. Many artificial grass brands are not eco-friendly, made from cheap components that are not safe for the environment, or manufactured in a way that is not safe for the environment.
For this reason, SYNLawn has instilled over 50 years of research and development into manufacturing the most eco-friendly artificial grass in the industry. SYNLawn Orange County artificial turf is manufactured PFAS-free with plant-based materials derived from sugar cane and soybean oil. It is manufactured in-house in Dalton, Georgia, so we have complete oversight of the manufacturing process to help ensure that environmental standards are met at every stage of development.
SYNLawn turf also allows you to eliminate traditional maintenance, conserve water, and significantly reduce your carbon emissions. SYNLawn is committed to environmental sustainability and offers products that can be recycled to reduce the impact on local landfills. SYNLawn is the first company to offer a collection of USDA-certified artificial grass and is the first turf company to become ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) rated.
Are There Any New Technologies in Artificial Grass Production?
Turf companies throughout the industry are always developing new technologies to advance artificial turf and compete in a saturated market. SYNLawn has become the leader in artificial grass innovation because of more than 50 years of research and development instilled in our turf. Our exclusive technologies, such as Super Yarn, EnviroLoc+, Super Drain+, HeatBlock technology, Omega technology, and more help create long-lasting, durable, and efficient synthetic grass for our customers in Orange County, California.
Are There Sustainable or Eco-Friendly Options for Artificial Grass?
Businesses and customers alike are searching for new ways to incorporate sustainable options into their landscapes. SYNLawn Orange County synthetic grass is manufactured in partnership with U.S. soy farmers. With their help, we have become the first and only company in the area to offer USDA-certified turf that contains 60–80% bio-based content. SYNLawn is the only truly sustainable and eco-friendly artificial grass in the industry, thanks to our plant-based turf line made from sugar cane and soybean oil.
How Does Artificial Grass Contribute to Water Conservation?
Fake grass is highly effective in controlling water waste for the simple fact that it does not require any watering. SYNLawn artificial turf can help customers conserve up to 70% of their monthly water consumption. This is thousands to tens of thousands of gallons of water per lawn per year.
What Is the Latest in Artificial Grass for Sports Fields or Playgrounds?
The newest artificial grass technology offers a wide range of alternatives for sports fields and playgrounds. Synthetic grass requires little maintenance and is made to withstand high foot traffic while adhering to commercial safety regulations.
At SYNLawn Orange County, we independently test our artificial grass to ensure that it will help reduce common injuries, abrasions, and muscular strain while providing shock absorption and meeting fall height attenuations. The demand for IPEMA-certified synthetic grass that is secure for kids on the playground and players of all ages and abilities was initially identified by SYNLawn.
