Looking to create the perfect outdoor oasis with beautiful, low-maintenance artificial grass, but aren’t sure if it’s right for your family? We know that making the decision to invest and install artificial grass is a big step. To help you out, we’ve made this artificial grass FAQ, so you can learn everything you need to know and shop with confidence. In this guide, you’ll get answers to the most common questions about artificial grass installations, including the different types of turf, how to install it, and how much it costs. Let’s get started.

What is synthetic grass made out of?

Artificial grass is typically constructed of a blend of polyethylene, polypropylene and occasionally nylon. Products constructed of nylon add to the turf’s resilience but are not nearly as common as other materials. Nylon offers additional benefits such as lower surface temperatures and are used in products with E108 fire ratings.

What types of artificial turf do you install?

SYNLawn® Kansas City offers a variety of turf applications for many different purposes, such as athletic surfaces, commercial and residential landscaping, pet grass, golf putting greens, playground turf, and more. Our installers take the time to listen to your needs so we can make the right recommendation for your project.

How long does artificial grass last?

Artificial grass is extremely durable. High-quality synthetic turf will typically last 15-20 years. Combined with the fact that it looks great year-round and requires very little maintenance, our product makes a great choice for backyards and lawns.

Can artificial grass be installed around trees, rocks or an existing landscape?

Yes, of course. Artificial grass looks best in a natural landscape. We also recommend adding undulation to the lawn area to make the grass look even more realistic.

Is artificial grass safe?

SYNLawn® Kansas City is strongly focused on responsible environmental sustainability. We use renewable and recycled materials during manufacturing while taking steps to extend our products lifespan, reduce carbon footprints, and conserve resources. Use of our product can contribute to LEED® Certification Points for environmentally conscience green builders.

Is artificial grass good for dogs and pets?

There are many advantages for using artificial turf in dog and pet areas. Our product is durable, easy to clean, and can help control odor normally associated with pet waste. Artificial pet grass provides a cleaner option by reducing muddy paws and dirty fur that can be tracked into homes. It also helps keep areas free of fleas, ticks, and other potentially harmful pests.

How do you clean fake grass?

Cleaning artificial grass areas is extremely easy and one of the greatest benefits of our product. Dust and debris can be removed with the use of flexible lawn rake, stiff bristle brush, or even a leaf blower. For tougher stains, areas can be hosed down as our EnviroLoc+™ Backing System is designed for optimal drainage even during times of heavy rain.

Is artificial grass hot?

The last thing any homeowner wants is a hot lawn in the middle of summer. SYNLawn® makes use of HeatBlock™ Technology that keeps surface temperatures cool even when installed in direct sunlight. This allows your kids and pets to comfortably use your yard all summer long.

Can you mix artificial grass and real grass?

While we feel the low-maintenance, real look and feel of our product makes it perfect for all areas, we understand there may be times homeowners may want to mix the use of synthetic turf and real grass. There are no technical reasons that such combinations can’t exist, though it’s important to remember that artificial lawns will maintain their look and feel all year round, which may not aesthetically match the look of your natural grass areas.
