When to Replace Your Artificial Grass Lawn

Since its introduction in the 1960s, artificial grass has exponentially grown in popularity. Its practicality and stunning aesthetics have made synthetic turf the perfect choice for home and business owners throughout the country. However, even the most cutting-edge artificial turf will eventually outlive its usefulness, and the need for replacement artificial grass will be prevalent. But how will you know when it’s time to replace your artificial turf landscaping? At Grizzly Turf & Pavers, we have some helpful suggestions that will help you identify the signs for replacement just in time, and hopefully, encourage you to reach out to us for your synthetic grass replacement needs.

Age of Your Artificial Turf

In most cases, synthetic turf has a shelf life of 10 to 15 years, after which you’ll start to see signs of fading and wear and tear. If you had your artificial turf installed by another company, you may have a limited warranty covering this standard period, and it is suggested that you review your warranty, checking for the coverage of your synthetic grass. At Grizzly Turf & Pavers, we are so sure that our products will live past this benchmark that we offer a 15-year warranty on all of our synthetic turf products!


Artificial turf is known for its resilience and durability; however, this does not mean that synthetic grass is indestructible. Over time, your artificial grass lawn will experience matting or discoloration typically caused by years of wear and tear and heavy use. Additionally, your inlays can begin to loosen, resulting in a grave safety hazard for you and your family. Depending on the severity of the damage, you may get away with replacing a specific portion of your artificial turf. For best results, however, it is recommended to replace your entire synthetic turf landscaping.

Selling Your Home

When you’re making plans to sell your home, your goal is to make a lasting impression on potential buyers. You’ll find yourself painting the interior of your home and possibly even installing new flooring. If you’re putting in that much effort on the inside, wouldn’t it make sense to work on the outside of your home, as well? Replacing your artificial grass yard will improve your home’s exterior aesthetic, giving your property that “wow” factor that could have your home sold sooner rather than later.

4 Benefits of UV Protection for Your Artificial Turf

If you’re a home or business owner and you’re considering investing in artificial turf, you likely want to make the most of your investment. One of the primary reasons why people make the switch to synthetic turf is that, unlike natural grass, artificial grass doesn’t fade or lose its color so easily. However, this isn’t to say that artificial turf is completely impervious to discoloration from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. To protect your synthetic turf and maximize the effectiveness of your new artificial grass landscaping, your best option is to choose UV-protected artificial turf, such as the products installed by the experts at Grizzly Turf & Pavers.

UV-Protected Synthetic Grass Prevents Discoloration

The sun is the natural enemy of all things plastic; this includes patio furniture, toys, and of course, artificial turf. Most untreated synthetic turf surfaces are made from nylon, polyurethane, or polypropylene, which are all different types of plastic. With UV-treated artificial grass, each blade is protected from the sun, leaving your lawn to stay green for longer.

UV-Treated Artificial Turf Helps Prevent Blades from Splitting

When exposed to high levels of sunlight, the threads of your artificial grass blades can start to come apart. The weakened blades are further compromised with foot traffic and heavy use of the synthetic turf, which results in the artificial turf grass being ruined and exposing the artificial nature of your synthetic grass lawn. The technologies behind UV-treated artificial turf strengthen the blades and allow them to withstand the elements!

Keep Tensile Strength Intact

Every artificial turf lawn has a varying degree of tensile strength — the synthetic grass’ ability to handle wear and tear for the life of the turf. UV rays can break down untreated artificial grass’ tensile strength, making it more susceptible to breakage. This is especially true for sports turf or artificial turf putting greens. UV-treated synthetic turf is perfect for outdoor event venues, soccer fields, and playgrounds!

Keep Your Family Safe with UV-Treated Synthetic Turf

Once untreated artificial turf breaks down from prolonged exposure to the sun, it will begin to stretch out and sag. This sagging creates wrinkles, which can pose a grave threat to the safety of your family and guests who visit your home and spend time on your artificial grass lawn. By protecting your turf from UV rays, you maintain your synthetic turf’s structural integrity and keep your family safe.

No matter the reason for wanting artificial turf for your home or business, you certainly cannot go wrong with UV-stabilized synthetic turf, such as the products installed by the experts at Grizzly Turf & Pavers. Our Diamond Light Fescue, Diamond Light Spring, Diamond Pro Spring, and Diamond Pro Fescue turf styles are each built with TigerCool technology, made with heat-reflective color pigments and advanced UV inhibitors that reduce the surface temperature of the artificial turf in your home or business. Additionally, our team of artificial grass installers works tirelessly to ensure a synthetic turf lawn that is beautiful, functional, and weather-resistant. Our UV-resistant artificial grass products, along with the rest of our lineup of world-class synthetic turf products, are backed by a 15-year warranty, granting you the peace of mind you deserve.
