Since 1995, Karoleen Alexander, the president and founder of PolyTurf has been personally involved in developing innovative artificial turf or imitation grass technologies for the landscape, lawn, playground, and sport field markets. In 1999, after years of testing and working with synthetic turf manufacturers worldwide, PolyTurf was introduced to the Department of State Architects in California as an alternative to natural grass.
The development of PolyTurf as a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to natural grass coincided with a growing government and public concern regarding using recycled materials and encouraging water conservation.
PolyTurf has since developed a variety of sustainable and environmentally friendly synthetic turf products for numerous applications including landscaping, lawns, medians, playgrounds, rooftops, small sports fields, schools, daycares, pet facilities, and more. PolyTurf products are LEAD-free, LEED eligible, durable, safe, realistic in appearance, and 100% recyclable at the end of their life.
