Environmentally Friendly, Water Conserving Artificial Grass

PolyTurf artificial grass is made in the U.S.A. using the latest available, top-of-the-line manufacturing equipment and technology. Our eco-friendly synthetic turf products are lead-free, non-toxic, LEED eligible, rapid draining, contain recycled content, and many are 100% recyclable at the end of their useful life.

Water Conservation

PolyTurf synthetic grass is a sustainable, water conserving alternative to natural grass which does not require any water to be maintained. According to the EPA, the average American household uses 320 gallons of water per day, about 30 percent of which is devoted to outdoor uses. More than half of that outdoor water is used for watering lawns and gardens. Nationwide, landscape irrigation is estimated to account for nearly one-third of all residential water use, totaling nearly 9 billion gallons per day.

California and the western United States are subject to water shortages and droughts. Natural turf removal rebates are available in many areas through local water districts to help customers transition away from water consuming natural lawns to water conserving lawns and landcapes.

LEED Green Building Credits

PolyTurf synthetic grass can help a building or property acheive LEED certification. PolyTurf synthetic grass reduces water consumption on site to help with overall water efficiency and use reduction. As a pervious, rapid draining surface, PolyTurf also provides stormwater management.

Reduced Chemical Use

PolyTurf artificial grass eliminates the need for fertilizers to keep your lawn green and weed free. During rain and watering events, these chemicals runoff and are transported to storm drains which eventually lead to creeks, rivers, lakes, and the ocean. Eliminating the use of fertilizers is healthy for the entire region.

Reduced Emissions

Natural lawns require regular mowing which often involves loud and air polluting lawn mowers and leaf blowers. PolyTurf synthetic grass requires no maintenance and will allow you to eliminate air and noise polluting equipment from your property, keeping the air cleaner and you and your neighbors happier.

Recycling and Energy Use Reduction 

PolyTurf products utilize recycled content wherever possible and many are 100% recyclable at the end of their useful life. Our EnviroFlow rapid draining backing contains recycled content and is made with postindustrial recycled polypropylene fibers. Waste from the manufacturing process is recycled and re-used as well. The manufacturing process for EnviroFlow uses very little energy and water, helping conserve valuable resources and helping increase U.S. energy security and independence.

Life Cycle Management

PolyTurf products are designed to be durable and long lasting for the longest useful life possible. Some of our oldest installation have been in place for nearly twenty years and still look great! At the end of their life, many PolyTurf products are 100% recyclable. PolyTurf is a long time participant of the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) which diverts used carpet and synthetic turf from landfills and provides recycling solutions.

Lead Free and Non Toxic

PolyTurf synthetic turf is lead free and non toxic and has undergone stringent testing for environmental and safety standards. PolyTurf products are certified lead free and surpass the EPA's requirements for no heavy metal leaching.
