SYNLawn North Carolina Corrects 5 Artificial Grass Myths

Scott Marks

Synthetic turf has become the primary choice for many homes and businesses across North Carolina, and SYNLawn North Carolina is here to address several myths and explain what makes our high-quality artificial grass stand out.

When you think of artificial grass, what do you picture? Is it perhaps a neon green expanse that is all one color and looks like a left-over party decoration? For many, this is their impression of synthetic turf. Fortunately, this picture is far from the truth!

Artificial grass has come a long way in the last few decades and now incorporates new technologies that will revolutionize your thinking on the following five artificial grass myths:

Myth #1: Artificial Grass & Infill are Bad for the Environment

Ensuring that the earth will be around for the next generations is essential, and the artificial grass products from SYNLawn North Carolina are helping make that a reality. Sadly, there have been previous eras of artificial grass production that made synthetic turf with cheap plastic that would produce fumes and toxic runoff. However, the artificial grass SYNLawn manufactures and sells here in the USA could not be more different.

Synthetic turf from SYNLawn North Carolina is:

  • Plant-Based with up to 80% Renewable Content
  • USDA Biopreferred
  • Non-Toxic
  • Equipped with the EnviroLoc+ Backing System made with sustainably sourced soybeans from American farms

Myth #2: Artificial Grass is Unsafe for Kids & Pets

The safety of children and pets is a top priority, and SYNLawn North Carolina takes this responsibility very seriously. Are you concerned about dangerous fumes or toxic chemicals? At SYNLawn, we have spent years taking those concerns to heart, and we proudly offer artificial grass products that are safer for our children and pets.

The peace of mind features our artificial grass provides our customers include:

  • USDA & IPEMA Certification
  • Fewer allergens, dirt, and bugs (when compared to natural grass)
  • SuperYarn technology features for safer turf:
    • Antimicrobial backing that helps discourage microbial buildup
    • DualChill technology that reflects sunlight
  • SYNLawn Playground Turf is padded to help prevent potentially serious injuries
  • SYNLawn Uses EnviroFill, which is a natural organic deodorizer


Myth #3: Artificial Grass Looks Fake

Forget the cheap neon green fake grasses of the past and step into the present! SYNLawn North Carolina’s residential and commercial artificial grass is ultra-realistic and has a very natural feel. We carry a wide variety of synthetic turfs with varied lengths, densities, and colors. What you will find at SYNLawn are glorious shades of green that have immeasurable depths of color. Not only does our artificial grass retain its color over time, but it also has incredible resiliency to maintain its shape even with heavy use.

The good news is, you do not have to just take our word for it! Take a look at our gallery to see some stunning examples of our artificial grass.

Myth #4: Artificial Grass Doesn’t Drain Well

Are you concerned about drainage for your new artificial grass? Fortunately, slow drainage is just a myth with SYNLawn North Carolina. When you have a professional SYNLawn expert install your synthetic turf, lawn flooding becomes far less likely because properly installed artificial grass with SYNLawn has a far superior drainage rate than natural grass. Our team makes sure that your ground base is properly graded, and our EnviroLoc technology does the rest, helping to keep your artificial lawn free from water buildup.

Myth #5: Artificial Grass Gets Too Hot

Summers in North Carolina can be uncomfortably warm, especially with warmer natural grass lawns. Many natural grass lawns get sticky and attract bugs in the summer. Fortunately, artificial grass from SYNLawn North Carolina can provide a much cooler surface for outdoor activities. With our DualChill technology, our synthetic turf is able to reflect sunlight with infrared pigments. DualChill provides over 40% more IR reflectivity than artificial grass without it, helping make our artificial turf cooler and more comfortable for our customers’ enjoyment.

The Marks Family are true professionals. Answer calls/texts immediately. They treated my home like it was there own. They also hold their employees to the same standard. Clean and efficient, when they left it was like (other than the job) they were never there.

We can’t say enough about the great service and products from Southeast Turf! From the first meeting to the installation, they were great to deal with. Not to mention how awesome my yard looks. I think several of my neighbors are going to have it done as well because they too were impressed! Thank you!!

Chris H.

Monroe, NC

I had a small fenced in area off our patio that our dogs used. Southeast Turf installed artificial grass and it looks great. The team showed up on time and did a great job. They are booked out for a few months because they are in high demand. We love our new dog area. No more dirty dog feet, no more digging and no more smell!!

Lisa M.

Surfside Beach, SC

Turf installation at our beach home. Two large dogs with a small side yard creates challenges for potty time and maintaining your yard. They were able to solve this concern with turf installation that provides a safe area for our furbabies and a beautiful physical appearance as well. The installation was professionally handled and we are loving our new area!
