In recent years, artificial grass has become a popular choice for homeowners looking for a low-maintenance and visually pleasing alternative to natural grass. With its advanced technology and realistic appearance, turf provides an evergreen outdoor space without the hassle of tedious lawn maintenance. However, there are a few common questions about synthetic turf that go beyond its well-known benefits.
If you’re considering a synthetic turf installation for your home or business, you may have some questions to help you decide whether an artificial grass landscape is right for you. Before you commit to a synthetic turf installer and start your renovation, make sure you ask your potential installers these four key questions.
1. Is Artificial Grass Environmentally Friendly?
One of the biggest reasons that homeowners choose artificial grass is its eco-friendliness. Synthetic turf doesn’t require any harmful chemicals or pesticides, and it aids in water conservation efforts. However, it’s still important to confirm with your synthetic turf installer that the turf they use is safe for the environment.
Ask your synthetic turf installer about where their turf products are made and what materials they use. Some imported, low-quality turf products can include lead or PFAS, whereas American-made or high-quality imported synthetic grass will be 100 percent lead-free, tested for harmful chemicals like PFAS, and guaranteed safe for kids and pets.
At Grizzly Turf & Pavers, we use Synthetic Grass Warehouse artificial turf products, which are always lead-free and completely safe for your family. The industry-leading turf products and installation accessories we use are environmentally friendly, free of harmful chemicals, and will help your landscape contribute to local water conservation efforts.
2. Can You Install Synthetic Turf on Small or Awkwardly Shaped Lawns?
Some property owners assume that synthetic turf is only suitable for large, open spaces. However, thanks to modern-day turf’s versatility and customizable nature, your artificial grass can be installed on land of any shape, size, or terrain.
When considering a synthetic turf installer, ask if they have experience installing artificial grass on small or oddly shaped lawns. A reputable and experienced installation expert should be able to provide examples of their previous work in similar areas. They should also be able to advise you on synthetic turf products and landscape design styles that will complement the area you have to work with, making the space look the best it can possibly be.
3. How Long Does a Synthetic Turf Installation Take?
No one wants their outdoor space to be out of commission for weeks on end, and one of the most common questions for synthetic turf installers is how long the average artificial grass installation takes.
Naturally, the exact project timeline will depend on the size of your lawn and the complexity of the installation. Open areas with no additional design features can be completed in as little as one day, while an area with many corners, interactive features, or hardscaping can take a few days. Generally, however, most synthetic grass installations take one to three days to complete.
4. Does My Synthetic Turf Installation Come with a Warranty?
Like any other significant home investment, you want to make sure that your artificial grass installation is protected in case of any issues. You should always ask your synthetic turf installer about available manufacturer warranties as well as their installation warranty.
Any reputable installer will offer a warranty for their installation services. This warranty should cover any installation defects that aren’t covered by typical wear and tear, such as uneven seams or drainage issues. Your installation should also come with a warranty from the manufacturer of the artificial grass product. At Grizzly Turf & Pavers, all of our landscape turf products are covered by a 15-year manufacturer warranty.
