Learn more about the effects of artificial grass on the environment — can synthetic grass really be ecologically friendly? When you mention the word synthetic, ecologically friendly isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Many of today's products are not only 100 percent recyclable but even use recycled materials like plastic water and soft drink bottles in manufacturing the turf and use organic materials like soy beans for the backing material. The increased soy production improves air quality by consuming CO2 from the atmosphere.
Greener: ProGreen Foam Pads are made from 100% recycled, non-contaminated, post-industrial, cross-linked, closed-cell polyethylene foam. Our foam pads are 100% recyclable! Easier: ProGreen Foam Pads can be used as a partial or total replacement of a crushed stone base (depending on your local soil conditions.) This speeds up the installation process and saves money.
Drier: ProGreen Foam Pads drain so well that children can be out playing as soon as 15 to minutes after a rainfall. Healthier: Our pads are copletely free of rubber, lead, and other heavy metals. Our recycled polyethylene foam pad s are non-microbial and resistant to bacterial and fungal growth. Safer: ProGreen Foam Pads are highly elastic and retain their shock absortion 1292-04 HIC and GMAX ratings for many years.
Frequently Asked Questions about Synthetic Grass for Playgrounds
What is the life expectancy of artificial grass in a playground setting?
The grass will last anywhere from 8 to 20 years, depending on how much use it gets.
Will the artificial grass fade in the sun?
Yes, but barely. It will only fade about 2 shades of pantone™ colors every 10 years. UV additives are mixed into our yarn resins so color fade will be minimal.
Is it difficult to repair or replace areas of the artificial grass?
No, it's easy to patch, this is something you can do yourself. In case you do need to repair the playground grass be sure to save any any leftover scraps of grass after installation.
Can ProGreen Synthetic Grass meet fall-height specifications?
Yes, ProGreen Synthetic Grass in conjunction with crumb-rubber infill and/or padding can meet most fall-height standards. Please call one of our specialists at 888-440-7888 for details.
Is synthetic grass warmer than my natural lawn?
Yes, of course our synthetic grass doesn't have the natural cooling capacity of natural grass. 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 warmer than natural grass. But, it's not so hot that you or your pets can't be on the surface on hot days with a few 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 synthetic grass with water right before you walk or play on your synthetic grass on a really hot day. Additionally, you can always wear shoes. Another thing that can be done to lower heat on synthetic grass is adding our Organafill Natural Infill material to the grass. These granules give a natural cooling effect to the grass, lowering surface temperature. 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. We have thousands of installations nationwide; including the Arizona desert. Complaints about surface temperature are extremely rare, but we understand people have different sensitivity levels. We just want our customers to be aware that there is a slight sacrifice to overcome the increased surface temperature, but it shouldn't stop you from enjoying your lawn for years to come…even on hot days!
