Dallas Zoo, home to over 2,000 animals is visited every year by more than one million people. SYNLawn® had the pleasure of installing 4,000 square feet of our incredible Texas artificial grass.

The empty spaces once part of the many exhibits here were recently rejuvenated by our installation of SYNTipede 343. This eco-friendly artificial turf solution offers unrivaled durability & reliability; exactly what is needed to handle the demand of heavy foot traffic and activity.

SYNTipede 343’s UV stabilized yarns resist fading and preserve the natural colors all year long regardless of its exposure to sunlight.

Furthermore, we pride ourselves in the 50+ years of research and development we have spent perfecting the features and technologies that go into our artificial grass products.


Among the many yearly visitors of Dallas Zoo, it was important to ensure that the younger children and elderly are safe. SYNTipede 343 is one of our safest artificial turf options for kid-friendly environments and is IPEMA certified.

Carrying this certification means that children are less susceptible to common injuries that can occur not only on playgrounds but in active areas like the Dallas Zoo. Additionally, this certification means that guests are protected from falls up to 10 feet. In addition, SYNTipede 343 boasts its ASTM E108 Class A fire rating proudly.

In an area like a Zoo, it would be important to contain a fire as quickly as possible. This rating means that SYNTipede 343 provides a larger time for first responders to arrive and extinguish the flames, potentially saving lives and minimizing property damage.


SYNTipede 343 utilizes SYNLawn® exclusive technologies and features that have never been seen in any other turf before. Super Yarn™ is a fantastic illustration of this. Super Yarn™ is a first-of-its-kind technology included in this grass system to ensure durability, safety, and cleanliness.

Our Super Yarn™ formula combines three of the most effective enhancements. Sanitized® antimicrobial makes our artificial grass safe for children and pets by removing 99 percent of germs and bacteria from our surfaces. Other competing artificial grass manufacturers offer products that cause a static shock with great amounts of friction.

StatBlock™ anti-static prevents static electricity build-up, and DualChill™ IR reflection protects our turf from fading due to infrared light exposure. EnviroLoc™ backing system contributes to our environmental sustainability by substituting a substantial percentage of petroleum polymers traditionally found in turf backing with soybean oil.

As a direct result of our backing system’s ability to "lock" your grass fibers in, shedding and ripping can be prevented.

Lastly, the porous body of our backing system provides for the best possible drainage and allows your lawn to be ready for use immediately after coming in contact with water.

In addition to many other commercial properties, Dallas Zoo wanted to save time and money on lawn maintenance while providing their guests with a lush and comfortable play area.

SYNLawn® San Antonio artificial grass is nearly maintenance-free, eliminates the need to spend money on lawn equipment or maintenance services, conserves gallons upon gallons of water annually, and helps to reduce carbon emissions.

Due to its recyclable, eco-friendly materials, SYNLawn® synthetic grass has a life cycle far beyond real grass and other manufacturers’ products. Our work with US farmers allows us to use sugar cane and soybean oil in our product composition to reduce the amount of petroleum-based polymers.

SYNLawn® is honored to be the first artificial turf company to offer USDA-certified products. We are proud to do our part in creating landscapes that give back to our environment.
