Artificial Turf Life Expectancy?
As far as ProGreen Synthetic Grass is concerned, you can be confident you are investing in a high-quality, 100% USA-made product. Our products are manufactured to a high standard of quality, which is why we can confidently say that our artificial grass has a life expectancy of approximately 20 to 25 years, depending on use. When debating whether or not you will get your money’s worth out of our artificial turf, the answer is a resounding YES, although that may not be the case with every turf product in the market.
When contemplating an investment in artificial turf, one of the most important pieces of information you can have is the expected lifespan of the grass. This will help determine whether or not the purchase will be worth it and if you will save money in the long run. Of course, there is not just one answer to this question since no two artificial grass products are the same. For example, it is easy to say that Chinese turf, while it is looking better and better each passing year, will deteriorate much faster than American-made synthetic grass. The first step in determining whether or not artificial grass is worth your investment is ensuring that you purchase a high-quality product.
What Else Affects How Long Artificial Turf Will Last?
Once you have secured a quality product, there are other factors that can affect the expected lifespan of your artificial grass.
For starters, it needs to be properly maintained. One of the best qualities of synthetic turf is the fact that it is low maintenance. As soon as your grass is installed, you will be free from mowing, weeding, seeding, fertilizing and those other pesky chores that go along with maintaining a healthy lawn. However, artificial grass is not completely maintenance free. To maximize the life of your grass, be sure to occasionally add more infill and brush/rake the fibers to keep them standing straight. Also, clean off leaves and debris when necessary.
The intended purpose of the artificial grass will also affect how long it lasts. For example, an artificial grass backyard that receives the occasional foot traffic from kids, barbecues, pets and guests will last longer than an athletic field that is home to daily games and practices.
