residential lawn artificial grass SYNLawn Tampa

SYNLawn Tampa addresses some of the frequently asked questions we have received about our top-tier artificial grass products and services in Tampa, FL. Explore the many questions we have answered below:

What Is Artificial Grass Manufactured With?

Traditionally, artificial grass is manufactured with materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, nylon, and may include an infill such as sand or rubber crumb infill.

Our Premium SYNLawn Tampa artificial turf is the first plant-based grass alternative in the area that is also manufactured PFAS-free. We utilize materials, including sugar cane and soybean oil, and never include a rubber crumb infill as it is a known source of PFAS. Instead, we utilize the antimicrobial and eco-friendly Envirofill® acrylic sand infill, which is non-toxic and long-lasting.

How Long Does Artificial Turf Last?

Normally, synthetic turf is rated to last 10 to 20 years or less.

At SYNLawn Tampa, we utilize high-quality and environmentally sustainable materials. Our synthetic turf is fade-resistant, can handle heavy foot traffic, and can handle nearly any weather condition. SYNLawn Tampa artificial grass can last a lifetime with minimal effort and is backed by an unmatched lifetime warranty.

Will HOAs Approve Synthetic Turf?

Not all homeowner associations (HOAs) approve artificial turf due to concerns about lawn continuity and the environment. However, SYNLawn Tampa synthetic grass is a preferred choice for HOAs because it seamlessly blends with conventional grass, is made with plant-based materials, and helps save substantial amounts of water. This eco-friendly option has convinced many homeowners and homeowners associations to choose it, contributing to water conservation and reduced carbon emissions. We work extensively with HOAs to help ensure that all guidelines are met before installation.

Is Artificial Turf a Good Alternative for Golf Greens?

SYNLawn Tampa putting green turf is the top choice for golf enthusiasts. Our faux golf greens are designed with precision and intensive research and development. With the help of Dave Pelz, we have created golf turf that mimics the appearance and behavior of regular grass without the need for traditional maintenance. Year-round, you will experience consistent PGA-caliber performance that can be customized with fringe, fairway, collar, and rough options. Perfect for all ages and skill levels, SYNLawn Tampa artificial golf greens provide the perfect backyard space for family fun!

Is Putting Green Turf Durable?

Putting green turf’s durability is determined by its materials and installation.

At SYNLawn Tampa, our putting green turf is made with our unmatched synthetic turf and can only be installed by those who are GreensMaster™ certified. The GreensMaster program was designed by Dave Pelz to help ensure that our installation quality never drops. Those with this certification have completed a minimum of 10 putting greens of more than 500 sq/ft that are free of wrinkles and seams, and your foundation is free of debris. Our putting green durability supports kid- and pet-friendly households!

Is Artificial Grass Safe for Playground Installation?

Artificial turf is safer for playground installation, especially with SYNLawn playground turf systems.

SYNLawn Tampa synthetic playground turf boasts commercial safety certifications from IPEMA, ADA, CSA, HIC, and ASTM. We believe that safety is the highest priority when designing a playground or athletic turf field. Our slip-resistant and non-abrasive surfaces help relieve muscle strain, prevent common injuries and abrasions, add shock absorption, and can help cushion falls up to 10 feet.

Does Artificial Turf Drain Properly?

SYNLawn Tampa pet turf systems, featuring our exclusive SuperDrain+™ and EnviroLoc+™ backing systems, help ensure proper drainage when in contact with liquids. The porous body of EnviroLoc+, combined with SuperDrain+™, allows our turf to achieve an unparalleled drainage rate of up to 1,200 inches per hour. This capability surpasses that of competing turf manufacturers, highlighting the innovative solutions integrated into our artificial pet grass for optimal performance.

Is Synthetic Turf Pet-Friendly?

Yes, synthetic turf is pet-friendly; but, not all brands offer the same quality, cleanliness, safety, & durability.

SYNLawn Tampa pet grass systems are hypoallergenic and coated with the highly effective antimicrobial Santized®. This coating helps eliminate substantial amounts of bacteria that can be found on turf surfaces. Sanitized® also helps to prevent fleas and ticks from making a home out of your pet and drastically aids in reducing odors caused by the ammonia in pet waste.
