All synthetic grass is the same: FICTION
This is could not be farther from the truth! There are different levels of quality, texture, color, and most importantly installation! Most of these options depend on your budget and how you are planning to utilize your lawn.
Synthetic grass can stand the heat of the Sun: FACT
There is an assumption that turf is made from plastics and it absorbs the heat from the sun just like plastic. However, synthetic grass is made of fibers that are not completely smooth, which actually dissipates the Sun’s rays, therefore helps reduce the heat! In fact, the artificial grass is much cooler to the touch than turf’s alternates like cement and stones that have been under the Sun!
A synthetic grass lawn is expensive: FICTION
Turf does not need watering, mowing, seeding, pesticide spraying, etc. on a monthly basis like natural grass does, so having a synthetic lawn actually pays itself off in just a few years. Most importantly, a synthetic lawn requires little to no maintenance, so you save your precious TIME! Just think of all the fun things you can be doing with your time and money.
Rubber is not used: FACT
Wilson Greens uses crushed rock and/or sand to lay the synthetic grass over during installation. Commercial companies or sport fields will use a crumb rubber byproduct for shock absorption purposes. Rubber is not used in the production of the synthetic grass itself. Synthetic grass can be made out of polyethylene, polypropylene, and/or nylon.
Synthetic grass contains materials that are dangerous to children and the environment: FICTION
There is no lead or other harmful chemicals in artificial grass. In fact, natural grass is usually full of pesticides and fertilizers; and because synthetic grass does not need pesticides and herbicides it is less disruptive to the atmosphere and ecosystem. A lot of these artificial grass products are made out of recycled materials therefore, less waste is produced and overall better for the environment. Artificial grass is designed to be completely safe for all humans, and animals!
Synthetic grass drains well: FACT
High quality artificial grass drains just as well as traditional grass, as there are pores inside of the grass along the base of the installation that allows the rainwater and pet waste to flow easily through.
Fake grass looks Fake: FICTION!
The proof is in the pictures. Artificial grass has evolved leaps and bounds since its introduction decades ago. Artificial grass looks more real than ever now because of the new threading technology. A synthetic lawn looks lush, green, and perfectly manicured all year-round!
