Sustainable GREEN

With an increasing demand for Earth-friendly green building materials, the synthetic turf industry is exploding with opportunity.

We Help Save
A lot more
than water

As the largest manufacturer of synthetic grass on Earth, we feel it’s our duty to help take care of our planet. That’s why we’ve worked so hard to make SYNLawn synthetic grass the safest, cleanest, greenest, most environmentally sustainable grass available. It is also why we control every phase of the manufacturing process, from step one to when you finally step on our grass.
For the third year in a row, Sport Group / SYNLawn have received a top Environmental, Social, and Governance Rating (ESG) from independent Morningstar Sustainalytics by demonstraing responsible manufacturing practices and stewardship.

Supporting Farmers
and the planet we share

If you turn a piece of our turf over, you’ll see that our product is backed up by a lot of good thinking. Our exclusive EnviroLoc+™ Backing Technology locks the blades in place and produces long-term durability that’s higher than industry standards. But what’s even more important is what it’s made from. Since 2008, we’ve used soybeans to create our plant-based backing, replacing a large portion of petroleum-based materials. Besides using a naturally grown, sustainable material to help reduce carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, we’re proud to support soybean farms by using their beans.

Environmentally Responsible
manufacturing facilities

All SYNLawn products come from one of our ISO 9001 Certified manufacturing facilities located in the United States, Germany or Australia. As a vertically integrated manufacturer we control the quality of every component used to create our world-class synthetic grass products.


We insist on maintaining meticulous control over every step of the process: product development, R&D testing, manufacturing, project design, using ISO 9001:2015 quality management systems. By doing everything ourselves in a highly controlled, vertically integrated way, we can continually push ourselves to come up with new and better ways to improve our process and our product. We never have to hear an outside supplier tell us something can’t be done.

Our products are engineered for longer lifespans, reducing the impact on local landfills. The turf elements can be easily repurposed for other materials and projects, creating even more sustainability. Plus, our warranty is one of the only manufacturer backed warranties on the market.

Every Blade of Grass is an Amazing Piece of Technology
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has granted SYNLawn the esteemed designation of being a Bio-Preferred provider of Certified Biobased artificial grass products and installation systems. As part of SYNLawn’s leadership role as the World’s safest, cleanest and ‘greenest’ turf manufacturer the company has taken measurable steps to reduce their overall carbon footprint by developing innovative ways to use renewable resources. One of the major components in SYNLawn’s turf products is the use of sustainable Soybeans to replace traditional virgin polyols in our exclusive EnviroLoc+™ backing.

How much EnviroLoc+ backing is made each year?

More than ten million square feet of EnviroLoc™ backing is produced by SYNLawn each year.

What percent of artificial grass is soy content?
Our exclusive EnviroLoc+ Backing Technology replaces up to 60% of traditional polyurethane with polyols from American grown soybeans. Overall, our USDA Certified turf products are certified as 19% for product alone and up to 80% when using renewable infill as part of the installation system.
Are there any PFAS or other harmful ingredients?
Absolutely not. SYNLawn takes great strides to ensure the safety of our artificial grass products. We continually use 3rd party testing to ensure we continue to produce “The Greenest Turf on Earth”.
How much water is used for outdoor irrigation?
It is estimated that homeowners use approximately 50-70% of their personal water consumption on the upkeep of their lawns. With water-free artificial grass, that need can be eliminated.
How long has SYNLawn worked with the USDA?
SYNLawn was the first artificial grass manufacturer to receive USDA Certification for our SYNAugustine 547 style in September 2020.
