Hi Linda! Thank you for your question. No need to use any chlorinated products, disinfectants, bleach, or high acid or alkaline chemicals on synthetic turf. Just rinse it with water. To neutralize smells, you can use Pet Odor Neutralizer. It's a live liquid enzyme, non-toxic, has over 150 billion microorganisms per gallon and quickly dissolves odors/bacteria. Pre-wet surface; shake the bottle well before use. Attach the nozzle to the water house, and rinse the surface; it dilutes 2 oz per gallon of water.

Samuel, there is no reason to worry about the toxicity of artificial grass. All synthetic turf products by Global Syn-Turf are tested by independent laboratories on lead content. You can find certificates of analysis and Manufacturing Material Safety Datasheets here:
MSDS contains a clause about Hazardous Ingredients:
"This product" is considered to be a non-hazardous chemical under the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration Hazard Communication Standard 29CFR1910.1200.
The latest concern was raised by the use of rubber infill, that was made from recycled tires, and experts are worried about health implications for children.
The rubber infill has nothing to do with artificial grass. There are tons of natural, organic infill options you can use for artificial grass installation. In fact, Global Syn-Turf never promoted or sold rubber infill. We always recommend natural infills for residential and commercial projects.
To add a safety cushion for kids, your clients may want to use lawn pads or shock pads underneath the turf.

Without infill, the average rating for both products are at about 9 ft. However, we always require 2 pounds of sand infill when installing the putting greens: the average readings on both products with infills is 12-14 ft.

Technically you can. However, the roundup won't be as effective if it can't get through the turf backing to kill the roots. You can pull out the weeds and spray the roundup at the hole where the weeds come through: hose it off if the roundup gets on the turf.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, thank you.

Yes, we have our turf independent tested and passes all nine levels for fire retardant. We have test sheets available from the office staff. Our turf is installed at former Angels manager Mike Scioscia house, and it had melted but turf helped stop the house from going up.

To calculate the amount of infill for synthetic turf, divide the pile height of turf by two, multiply it by the square footage of your area and 0.0833333; you'll get the number of required cubic feet. Multiply this number by the infill weight per cubic feet, and you receive the infill weight in pounds. Silica sand, for example, weighs 80 lb/per cubic feet.

Please, refer to a detailed artificial grass installation guide.

Clean up the surface from debris with leafblowers or rake. Hose off pet waste. To remove any spillage, use regular cleaner, rag or brush, and then rinse with water.

The cheapest types of infill are silica sand and green sand. You can use eco-friendly Super-Fill sand coated with Arch Biocide known for its antimicrobial properties. Zeolite organic infill controls odors and is ideal for pet areas. TCool infill helps to keep the turf temperature down 50% on hot, sunny days; it also adds the benefit of the anti-microbial addictive, BacShield.

The prime benefit is no maintenance. You don't need to mow, water, fertilize, control weeds, or re-seed artificial lawn. It always looks beautiful. For the arid west, conserving water can be the number one motivation for installing synthetic turf. For pet owners, having clean, dry outdoor space is a treat. For parents, safe, cushioned, chemical-free environment for kids is the priority.

Under regular traffic, artificial grass lasts up to 25 years. It won't fade or flatten over time. Global Syn-Turf has a 15-year warranty on all turf products.

The face weight (or pile weight) is the weight of the turf pile per square yard measured in ounces. It should not be confused with the total weight as it includes the weight of the backing. Face weight is used to determine the turf durability.

Cut the turf to fit your area. Clean the surface with soap and warm water to ensure the adhesion. Glue around the edges and seams. Lay out the grass. Stretch it. Trim off any excess turf. Compress glued areas. Allow 24 hours for adhesive to set.

I believe so. For 1,000 square feet of natural grass lawn, you spend approximately $19,500 in 10 years period; $2,000 in installation costs, and $1,700 in annual maintenance (watering, mowing, sprinkler repairs, re-seeding, fertilizing, weed control, etc.) It may cost you $4,000-$6,000 dollars to install 1,000 sq. ft. of synthetic grass, but there are no upkeep expenses.
