Should I Buy the Cheapest Artificial Turf? *hint: Nope!

The demand for residential artificial turf has risen recently because of its low maintenance, aesthetic appeal, and eco-friendly qualities. With this growing demand comes the temptation to buy synthetic turf from anyone selling it cheaply. For reasons explained later in this post, purchasing the cheapest turf can be damaging in the long run. But first, let us look at two major reasons why synthetic turf is so popular in the first place.

Why Should You Install Artificial Turf?

Artificial Turf Looks Amazingly Green and Luxurious

Nothing rivals the look and feel of artificial turf when it comes to landscaping. Thanks to technological breakthroughs, the blades now look more realistic than ever. Artificial grass is not only luxurious, but it also does not fade with time or use.

Our Affordable Artificial Turf is highly suited for putting greens, pet and dog turf, playgrounds, roofs, decks, patios, and more. Read our favorite 7 reasons to consider artificial turf in Northern Virginia.

Saves Money and Time

Although installing artificial turf requires an initial investment, it will save you money in the long run. Consider your water bill; watering a 500-square-foot backyard grass lawn might easily cost $200 per year. Then there’s monthly maintenance. This can add up to $500-600 a year. Lawn tools, herbicides, fertilizers, and other chemicals are required to do your own lawn care.

Alternatively, a synthetic lawn requires no water or chemicals. And a quick rinse and sweep every now and again. This saves you hundreds of dollars annually, as well as countless hours of valuable time.

Why Buying Cheap Artificial Turf is Not a Great Idea

Synthetic turf is now available from hundreds of online retailers. However, to stay competitive, some of these stores sell turf at highly discounted prices. This is a significant temptation for anyone looking to switch to artificial turf quickly and cheaply. But there’s a catch, and we investigate it further below.

Subpar Materials

Not all artificial grass is alike. Some synthetic turf on the market may be more hazardous than helpful, depending on the manufacturing process and technologies used. To save money, certain manufacturers may omit or swap key components, such as polypropylene. Others have not switched to more eco-friendly production processes and materials, resulting in degraded, low-quality turf.

Poor Support

While some artificial grass vendors are proactive and forthcoming during the sales process, they are nowhere to be found when you require continuing assistance. Buying the cheapest artificial turf on the market may imply that you will not receive the superb customer service that comes with a trusted local company.

ISO-Certified and Cutting Edge Artificial Turf Innovation

Synthetic grass has evolved from tightly coiled nylon fibers to polypropylene to plant-based polymers. Today, the turf has longer, broader fibers with “thatch” in the yarn and backing, which helps form and function. The new fibers are more naturalistic, safe for kids and athletes, and weather-resistant. In addition, we are proud to have obtained ISO 9001:2015 certification, a worldwide renowned quality management system.
