USDA Certified Artificial Grass
The first synthetic grass certified by the USDA
Nothing speaks to our dedication to sustainability more than this fact: We were the first company to receive the USDA’s artificial turf system rating, with bio-based content of more than 70%. Using a combination of sugarcane in the turf fibers and soy in the backing was a major advancement over petroleum-based products. Homeowners, architects and designers can feel confident they’re making environmentally sound choices when selecting artificial turf products from SYNLawn.
Supporting American farmers and the planet
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 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 and sugarcane to create our EnviroLoc™ backing, replacing up to 60% of petroleum-based materials. Besides using a naturally grown, sustainable material to help reduce carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, we’re proud to support American farms by using their soybeans.
A healthier planet starts at ground level
We can say this confidently: There is no other synthetic grass company that does more and invests more into creating products that respect and protect the earth. We’re here to create beautiful spaces and beautiful places. And we’r here to make sure they have a beautiful future.
There has never been a Synthetic Grass this Green
We help save a lot more than water. As the largest manufacturer of synthetic grass on the planet, we feel it’s our duty to help take care of the planet. That’s why we’ve worked so hard to make SYNLawn synthetic grass the safest, cleanest, greenest, most environmentally sustainable grass on earth. And it’s also why we control every phase of the process, from step one to when you finally step on our grass.
We’re proud of how our product looks. And we’re equally proud of all the work, thinking and research that goes into every blade of grass.
