Fake Grass FAQs
- Aren’t all synthetic grass systems the same?
Definitely not! ForeverLawn is clearly a cut above. Please take
the time to review our product section, as well as the “Only
ForeverLawn” section. In short we have unique products,
designed for durability and realism, with a premium backing system
and advanced, unique seaming method. ForeverLawn is defining the
curve with unmatched and industry leading quality.
- Is the grass pet friendly?
Absolutely. In a low use back yard any of our products will do
fine. However, if you have multiple dogs or are looking for a
kennel area, K9Grass is the product you want. It is designed specifically
for dogs with a new construction featuring our Flow through ™
backing and anti-mircobial blades for maximum protection.
- Can animal waste harm ForeverLawn? Since the
grass is porous, the urine will drain through to the ground beneath
and will not stain the fibers. The feces can be scooped and discarded
and the remainder hosed off without harming the grass in any way.
However, normal type turf systems have restricted drainage and
limited cleanability. This is why we developed K9Grass. Low use
areas are great for all our turfs, but high use dog areas should
- Will the grass fade?
Ultimately yes. All synthetics will fade, ours or others.
However, ForeverLawn is treated with a UV inhibitor to protect
against fading and UV degradation, and we are going on 5 years
of real life experience in the southwest with our turfs, and all
is well. Plus, we offer an 8-year limited warranty.
- Does the grass have a warranty?
Yes, our warranty covers fade and excessive wear for 8 years.
We expect the grass to last for 12 to 15 years.
- How is the grass priced?
The grass is priced on a per square foot basis which
can be figured by taking the width of an area times the length.
- How much does the grass cost?
That's a tough one due to all the variables such as geographic
region, dealer representation, ground prep requirements, access
to the area, size of the job, etc. Your best bet is to contact
your local dealer. They will be able to provide a site survey
and give you accurate answers to all your questions and specific
recommendations on the options that will serve you best for
years to come. Actual pricing will vary
from area to area.
- Does water drain through the grass?
Yes, our grass is perforated throughout to allow for water to
properly flow through into the drainage base that has been applied
- Does the grass mold or mildew?
Due to the non-absorbing nature of the materials used and the
drainage base designed to migrate water away from the grass, mold
and mildew is not an issue. In fact, our backing is made of an
anti-microbial urethane foam and a geotextile fabric made of recycled
- How hot does the grass get?
The grass does not stay as cool as natural grass which has water
running through it, but does not absorb and radiate heat like
pavement, rock or brick.
- Will the rubber in-fill harm my children or pets?
Our rubber is non-toxic and in no way will harm either children
or pets if swallowed. A material safety data sheet can be provided
- Will the grass catch fire?
The grass is non-flammable.
- How much water would I really save by using your grass?
According to the water management statistics, 75% of your monthly
water bill is for outside use!
- What if I spill something on the grass like paint?
Our grass is made of non absorbing materials that would allow
you to simply clean up any spill without staining. A complete
care guide will be mailed to you after the completion of the job
that will tell you how to care for your grass and clean any spill.
- Will the grass harbor any bugs?
Since the grass has no organic
value, the bugs have nothing to feed on and therefore will move
on to a yard with real grass. Fire ants have a hard time coming
up through the drainage holes and will generally find an area
outside the grass that has less resistance.
