Clean up the surface from debris with leaf blowers or rake. Hose off pet waste. To remove any spillage, use regular cleaner, rag or brush, and then rinse with water. To learn more on how to care for your artificial grass, visit here.
Stitches count refers to the number of stitches per square meter. To calculate the stitch count, multiply the turf gauge by the number of stitches per meter. For example, if the turf gauge is 3/8 and the stitch rate is 14/10, 105 by 140 equals 14,700 stitches per square meter.
Stitch Rate is the number of stitches per inch in the length of synthetic turf. For example, the stitch rate of 14/10, means there are 14 stitches in 3.93 inches.
The face weight (or pile weight) is the weight of the turf pile per square yard measured in ounces. It should not be confused with the total weight as it includes the weight of the backing. Face weight is used to determine the turf durability.
Gauge is the distance between the yarns of an artificial grass. Technically, it indicates the number of needles per inch across the width of the tufting machine. Gauge is referred to density. The higher this number, the denser the grass.
Pile height is the height of the artificial grass blade in inches from the backing to the tip. In specifications, the pile height can be given in fractions of an inch. For example, 3/4'', or in decimal fractions of an inch is 2.625 inches. MegaGrass artificial grass pile height ranges from 0.5 inches for golf putting greens to 2.625 inches for landscape application. Longer, thicker grass looks more lush and natural.
Our artificial grass is 100% lead-free. No research has shown any health risks. It's made of the thermoplastic, low-density polyethylene (LDPE). PE is widely used in the food industry. LDPE is a very flexible material with unique properties that make it suitable for synthetic turf, floor tiles, furniture, paneling, cans, bins, outdoor lumber.
Absolutely! For every 1,000 square feet of natural grass lawn, you spend approximately $19,500 in 10 years period; $2,000 in installation costs, and $1,700 in annual maintenance (watering, mowing, sprinkler repairs, re-seeding, fertilizing, weed control, etc.) It may cost you $4,000-$6,000 dollars to install 1,000 sq. ft. of synthetic grass, but there are no upkeep expenses.
The prime benefit is no maintenance. You don't need to mow, water, fertilize, control weeds, or re-seed artificial lawn. It always looks beautiful. For the arid west, conserving water can be the number one motivation for installing artificial grass. For pet owners, having clean, dry outdoor space is a treat. For parents, safe, cushioned, chemical-free environment for kids is the priority.
EcoGreen America warrants our artificial grass for fifteen (15) years from the date of artificial grass installation, when it is installed, and maintained as recommended by the manufacturer. For more details on our warranty, please visit here.
Of course! MegaGrass artificial turf is extremely popular for animal hospitals, kennels, and home owners with pets. Animal urine does not damage or stain our artificial grass. What is most attractive is that even with pets a green lawn is possible!
Under regular traffic, artificial grass lasts up to 25 years. It won't fade or flatten over time. Global Syn-Turf has a 15-year warranty on all turf products.
