Frequently Asked Questions
What is the life expectancy of Artificial Synthetic Grass by Lawn Pros?Our artificial grass comes with a limited 8-year warranty, but the actual life expectancy is approximately 25 years depending on use.
Is Artificial Synthetic Grass by Lawn Pros similar to indoor/outdoor carpet? Not at all. Our synthetic grass truly resembles natural grass. Not only does Synthetic Grass by Lawn Pros look real, but many of our grass products feel real! The fiber length ranges from 1″ to 2.5″ depending on the product.
Is the sun harmful to Synthetic Grass by Lawn Pros or make it fade? No. We don’t use a topical UV treatment; our fibers have built-in UV Inhibitors that we mix into the fiber/yarn resin. Often, turf made outside of the USA will have insufficient UV protection that can cause the fibers to break down prematurely. All turf by Lawn Pros is made from the highest quality materials from our plants in the USA. We have projects that we installed in the late 1980s that have no discernible signs of fading. In rare instances we have found that Energy Efficient Windows can cause magnified reflections that may cause synthetic turf to melt if it is in the direct path of that reflection. The magnification from some Energy Efficient Windows is so powerful that it can melt sprinkler heads, kiddie pools and other plastics. Call the manufacture and ask them how to remedy this problem if you do have Energy Efficient Windows. Tinting the windows is usually sufficient.
Is artificial synthetic grass hotter than my natural lawn? Yes, all artificial synthetic grass is warmer than natural grass in the sun, it just doesn’t have the natural cooling capacity of natural grass. It will not get as hot as beach sand, but it will be warmer than natural grass, which contains water. There’s always a trade-off for the benefits such as no mowing, no watering, no weeding, no chemical applications, easier dog clean up, no mud, etc. The only real trade-off is that the surface of synthetic grass will be hotter than natural grass. But, we have never had a complaint that it was so hot that it burned a person or pet. The darker green colored fiber absorbs more sun than our lighter shades of green. On really hot days, take these precautions: We recommend having at least one portion of your lawn area shaded for instant relief. If the temperature gets hot, it’s always nice to have a little relief area until it cools down again. Also, you can spray the artificial synthetic grass with water right before you play or walk on your synthetic grass on a really hot day. Additionally, you can always wear some type of footwear. Another thing that can be done to lower heat on artificial synthetic grass is adding a light color of approved silica sand or other infill that is light in color. Many people find that the extra heat doesn’t bother them as long as they keep moving. But, even if these precautions are not exercised, hot weather has not kept people or pets off of synthetic grass.

How is Synthetic Grass by Lawn Pros Installed? Existing sod must first be removed. Next, a base is created using a special blend of crushed rock (2″ to 4″ depth), then smoothed and compacted. The artificial grass is then rolled onto the surface of the base and seamed together if necessary (turf widths are 15′.) Then the infill material is is spread over the top of the grass using a fertilizer spreader and brushed to the bottom of the artificial grass. The grass product type and the type of use determines the type and amount of infill. The infill can be sand, rubber crumb, or our eco-friendly (or a combination of the above.) Installation for synthetic putting greens is similar but there are additional layers of base materials that need to be thoroughly compacted.

Synthetic Grass by Lawn Pros has perforations (holes) in the backing that allow water to drain into the blended rock base below the artificial turf.
