If you are thinking about investing in a synthetic grass lawn, there are many things you should consider. Not every synthetic grass company is the same, and they do not all provide the same caliber of products; some are not worth the money and will look and feel fake. Your synthetic lawn grass should offer excellent drainage, long life expectancy and provide a realistic look and feel, to avoid an unsatisfactory experience.
Synthetic grass should have excellent drainage capabilities, especially if you have pets in the area. If a synthetic grass company tells you that they drill holes for drainage, you should expect to see tiny ponds after it rains and you will have to manually rinse off dog urine. High quality synthetic grass, such as FieldTurf, has a special backing and a unique installation process that allows it to drain water and other liquids, such as dog urine, at an unmatched rate.
A high quality synthetic grass should also last from 15 to 20 years, so if you find a product that cannot claim to last this long, it may not be worth the investment. And if you find a synthetic grass company that does make this claim, ask for referrals or testimonials to ensure that this is a factual claim and not just a marketing gimmick.
Another extremely important aspect to consider when purchasing synthetic lawn grass is the cost, which is an obvious statement to most consumers. Determining if synthetic grass will really give you what you pay for is not always easy. To ensure that it is a good value, find out if the product is time-tested and the installers are highly trained and supervised. Also, make sure they are a stable and licensed company that doesn’t cut corners. These things really make a difference in your investment…and remember, doing it right the first time is important so that you don’t have to replace your lawn and double your expenditure. It is a better investment to select a higher quality product and installation company from the outset and avoid the “too good to be true” priced companies.
