From time to time, you can see weeds grow from the edges of your artificial grass or even through the drainage holes. Weeds are very stubborn and can grow anywhere possible. To avoid weeds growing through your artificial grass, I will recommend you to use the weed barrier on top of the sub base, under your artificial turf. If you have your artificial grass installed and didn’t use any weed barrier, to get rid of the weeds can get very easy: first of all, you won’t have much of weeds grow through artificial grass at all, the weeds will be very spotty, you can simply pull them out or use weed killers like roundups, but when using the weed killers, you need to be careful and I always recommend you to wear gloves and masks to protect yourself or use organic (non-chemical) weed killers.

Artificial grass requires minimum maintenances if any, depending on the applications and usages. Typically for people’s front yards with minimum traffics or usages, you might not to do anything for years besides to remove leaves or debris from the lawn surface. Some heavy used areas, you might need to brush/rake up the fibers from time to time and adding some infills when needed.

Global Syn-Turf is the pioneer of the artificial grass industry and we are the first company to introduce engineered blades by naming our products with the shape of the blades.

The benefits of engineered blades are:

1. It reflects the lights differently do the artificial grass won’t look as shinny so their appearances are more realistic.

2. Given the fact of fibers being engineered with shapes, your artificial grass is much more resilient and stands up much better.

3. Engineered blades will also take wear and tear better and prolong the lifespan of artificial grass.

Overall, the engineered blades which designed with different shapes are not only perfectly replicate real grass but also dramatically enhance the performance and functionality of our artificial turf.

There are two major advantages of using artificial grass for sport applications:

1. Considerably lower cost of maintenance cost: all artificial grass sport fields will need regular maintenance such as infilling and brushing and cleaning. However such maintenance cost less than 1/4 of the cost of maintaining a real grass field, not to include the cost of watering the real grass sport fields. Maintenance on artificial grass sport field is a routine and easy process requires minimum skills.

2. Artificial grass is the only choice for any indoor sport field applications. It is just not possible for have real grass sport fields indoors. Astrodome was the very first place in where artificial grass was invented for that particular reason. When the dome was built, real grass was installed inside, but it become impossible to keep the real grass alive and get maintained.

Initial upfront cost for artificial grass sport applications might be higher but it can save a great deal amount of money in the long run.

It depends and can be different from state to state. As far as I am aware of that HOAs in most of the states are careless about restrictions on artificial grass if the installations to be in the backyard. Some of the HOAs might have rules for front yard artificial grass installations, but in state of California, it is illegal for HOA to restrict artificial grass as it is considered as drought tolerated landscaping and California Law prevents HOAs to set any of their own rules to stop drought tolerated landscaping. I haven't heard HOAs in any other states not to accept artificial turf, but the best approach will be for you to fill out this online form, and we will help you to find out more information regarding this matter, or you can reach out to your HOA to see if there is any specific rules they might have toward artificial grass.

We offer three different type of putting green artificial grass. They are all functioning the similar way in term of ball speed, bouncing factors and consistencies. The main difference among the three products are the colors:

1. Putt-60Bicolor, darker green

2. Putt-46Bicolor, lighter green

3. ProPutt-44, medium green

From the manufacturing specs, the 60 has more materials and therefore the putting is more dense, such configuration make it a good artificial grass option for other sports such as bocce balls, lacrosse and etc. due to its density.

My personal preference has always been Pro Putt-44 which has a medium tone green color can blend in really well with whatever fringe and the speed is great, more important, it takes infills well for higher speed adjustment.

This is a really good question. Like carpets which has been around for a long time, of which installation methods haven’t been changed much at all. And I am not sure new methods of artificial grass will have revolutionary changes any time soon. We need to know why the current installation methods make sense for artificial grass:

1. Drainage of water or dog urines is a primary concern for artificial turf installs, which will require a good sub base to be built.

2. A perfectly smooth surface is critical for artificial grass to be laid on to ensure proper looking of your artificial grass, this is a part of sub base building as well.

3. Glues and nails are needed for secure the artificial grass in place and seams.

4. Infills are also required to minimize the expansion and contractions of your artificial grass due to the temperature changes.

Unless we can find ways to resolve reasonings above, I am afraid that the current installation ways will be here to stay for a while. However, being an pioneer of the industry, we have been introducing some easier installation alternatives such as using drain boards but nothing major or revolutionary so far.

Artificial grass can be used both outdoors and indoors, we design our products for both uses without any issues. I will say the majority of applications of artificial grass are outdoors as it is mainly the perfect replica of real grass. However, in order to achieve landscape designs for some indoor applications, real grass won't be feasible due to the watering or maintenance concerns, artificial turf will be the only option. Also, all the indoor events, sport fields will need artificial grass as well. Sometimes, people will use artificial turf for indoor carpet for which application, I will always suggest to use turf with shorter blades so it will be easier to clean and provide less tripping concerns.

Our artificial grass consists of four major components: 

1. Straight fibers which are made of PE (Polyethylene).

2. Curled thatch is made of PP (Polypropylene).

3. Primary backing is made of PP (Polypropylene): this is a double layer "cloth" for artificial grass fibers to reside on.

4. Secondary backing which is made of PU (polyurethane): this is the glue to bind turf blades on the primary backing.

The usage of nails and glues are different for artificial grass installations, you will need both to get the proper job done, not necessarily one is better than the other. In general, you will need to nails to secure the perimeters of your artificial turf, and also to be used along with seaming tape and glue to secure the joints of two pieces together. The turf glues are mainly used to bond the artificial grass seams together. 

The seaming job can be a bit tricky and does require skills and experiences for a perfect result. 

I personally always want to recommend professional installers to perform artificial grass installation work especially when it requires more than one piece and have some complications such as slopes, off shapes and etc.

Seaming is one of the most important tasks for artificial grass installations which requires skills and experiences. Seam starts to separate is a sign of installation wasn’t done right. My suggestion is to reach out to your installer and have them fix it. For professionals such fix won’t be a difficult job, make sure you ask them to have their best seaming installer on your repair.

However, if you did the installation yourself and you need to fix it, you need to make sure follow the seaming instructions:

1. Use seaming tape

2. Use seaming glue

3. Use carpet stretcher 

4. Use nails

Typically, there are two main components kept your artificial grass in place: nails and infills.
