1. What is this stuff made of?

There are many different types of artificial grass products, but all artificial turf contains three basic components: a backing layer, the infill/pad and the fibers. The backing layer consists of PVC which helps hold everything together. The infill/pad varies between options, but each helps the fibers stand tall and provides drainage capabilities. The fiber is what makes up the grass blades. The fiber is made from a combination of other materials such as nylon, polyethylene or polypropylene.

2. How long will it last?

As long as you invest in high-quality artificial grass, you can realistically expect it to last anywhere from 8 to 15 years and often much longer! Better yet, our clients who’ve invested in artificial grass find that it pays for itself within 3 to 5 years on lawn-related expenses alone.

3. What happens if I spill something on synthetic turf?

If you spill something on your artificial lawn, don’t worry! It will not damage the grass. Just hose off any spills and use mild detergent if necessary.

4. How long does it take to install?

Depending on the size of your project, new artificial grass can be installed in as little as a day. Larger and more complex installations can take several days. 

5. Will artificial grass stand up to the weather?

Yes! Artificial grass is extremely durable and will withstand any type of weather, from blistering heat to torrential rain. It won’t burn or fade in the sun. Plus, it requires very little maintenance besides regular sweeping or hosing off.

6. Is artificial grass in NJ safe?
