Is all synthetic grass made the same?
I often get asked why some synthetic grass is much cheaper than others. There are a few factors which go into the manufacturing process of synthetic grass which determine the overall quality.
When selecting synthetic grass take the time to go over the following checklist:
- Is the company reputable? A great way to find out is to check if they are registered with your local Better Business Bureau.
- Is there a warranty? Does it cover the cost of installation and material? If they do have a warranty how is it backed? Most likely the warranty is through the manufacturer overseas.. Do you really think they will back it?
- What is the back of the material made from? In some circumstances the back of the synthetic grass has a black shiny backing. This is a low quality backing and while they are sustain hotter climates, they will fail in our environment. An easy test is to run your car key over the backing; if you can start to pull out the grass, stay away!
