LEED® points using SYNLawn artificial grass

Using SYNLawn artificial grass helps environmentally conscious green build builders and specifiers with LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) project certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Water Efficient

Most homes across the country use 50-70% of the household water consumption is used for outdoor irrigation

To keep lawns green, it takes approximately 685 gallons of water to apply 1-inch of water over 1,000 square feet of lawn annually. That is a tremendous burden on the local freshwater supply just to keep the lawn green. How can you make a difference? Replace your natural lawn with SYNLawn artificial grass to eliminate up to 70% of your water consumption. The choice to switch to SYNLawn not only gives you a beautiful-looking lawn year-round without the maintenance also contributes to lowering your carbon footprint.
Manufactured with
renewable resources
Engineered using the EnviroLoc+™ backing system, these products replace up to 60 percent of the petroleum-based polymers with renewable soybeans to create superior strength, dimensional stability, and a healthy contribution to environmental sustainability. The first component is the primary backing which helps extend the product life cycle by using less material, is stronger, and has superior dimensional stability compared to traditional artificial grasses.

SYNLawn’s product lifespan is further extended with our exclusive secondary backing system which incorporates an environmentally-sensitive polyurethane that replaces a large portion of traditional petroleum-based polymers with renewable resources including American grown soybeans.
