Frequently Asked Questions About San Antonio Artificial Grass

The team from SYNLawn San Antonio provides answers to a number of frequently asked questions about our artificial grass products and services, which are available for homes, businesses, and more in San Antonio, TX. Discover the details on our selection of synthetic grass products and first-rate services below:

What Is Artificial Grass Made Of?

Traditional artificial grass is designed with materials like polypropylene, polyethylene, and nylon. It also features a backing system that secures turf fibers to prevent shedding.

At SYNLawn San Antonio, our artificial grass is the first synthetic grass to be manufactured with plant-based materials, including sugar cane and soybean oil; even our backing system is made with renewable soybeans. We also replace rubber crumb infill with Envirofill® acrylic sand infill. Best of all, at SYNLawn San Antonio, our artificial turf is manufactured PFAs-free in our own manufacturing facility in Dalton, Georgia!

How Long Does Artificial Grass Last?

Competing artificial turf brands can last 15–20 years or less. This is dependent on the quality of materials that are utilized to manufacture the turf, its ability to resist the test of time, and the quality of the installation.

Our team offers high-quality San Antonio synthetic grass with superior durability, higher-quality materials, and unrivaled performance. It is thanks to our Super Yarn™ technology, EnviroLoc+™ backing system, and other technologies that we can offer the longest-lasting turf on the market – with a lifespan of 20+ years. We are very confident that you will love your turf for a lifetime, and that is why we back our turf with a LIFETIME warranty!

Is Artificial Grass Safe for Children and Pets?

Many residents in San Antonio, Texas, are concerned with the health and safety of their children and pets. Fortunately, at SYNLawn San Antonio, our artificial grass is widely considered safer for both. Our synthetic turf is free of harsh chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals. It features a hypoallergenic design, is coated with Sanitized® antimicrobial, and remains cool to help prevent burned feet and paws. SYNLawn is also the first company to offer synthetic grass that is manufactured PFAs free, also known as, “forever chemicals.” We take pride in the fact that our turf is cleaner, safer, and more environmentally friendly than the competition in our industry.

Does Artificial Grass Get Hot?

During warmer times of the year, traditional synthetic grass can become warm as it sits under the sun. This can make comfort somewhat difficult to achieve. Fortunately, many SYNLawn artificial turf options are manufactured with our exclusive HeatBlock™ technology. HeatBlock™ is scientifically proven to help keep surface temperatures up to 20% cooler than other turf options.

Does Artificial Turf Fade Over Time?

Under long-term sun exposure, traditional synthetic turf is subject to fading. However, many artificial grass providers manufacture options that are designed to resist fading. SYNLawn’s DualChill™ IR reflective technology and UV-stabilized yarns will not fade. Our pure nylon fibers can withstand the sun's rays year-round and maintain the lustrous glow you desire.

Is Artificial Grass Environmentally Friendly?

Yes, artificial turf is environmentally friendly. At SYNLawn San Antonio, our synthetic turf helps conserve thousands of gallons of water and eliminates the need for gas-powered lawn equipment. SYNLawn turf not only helps you save water, but it greatly helps reduce carbon emissions and prevents further negative landfill impact. It is manufactured PFAS-free and with plant-based materials. It can also help landscape architects earn LEED credits toward their education.

How Does Artificial Grass Contribute to Water Conservation?
