    5 Ways to Improve Your Backyard Today

    shutterstock_155205341Life is too short for a boring backyard. There is no reason to tolerate empty space with a carpet of brown grass and a few droopy flowers scattered across a backdrop of peeling paint and tacky fixtures. The dead space in your backyard is actually more than an eyesore and a waste of space: boring backyards repel people. There’s a reason friends opted out of that summer barbeque this year and (thankfully) it wasn’t personal; backyards need to be inviting to attract company. Spruce up your bland space with some attractive features that will make you and your friends actually want to go outside this fall!

    Both products are constructed with a low pile blended polyethylene and nylon with a 5mm foam back. This provides a surface that is less abrasive and results in less friction than competitor’s products that only use nylon. The products are created with innovative shock absorbency designed to reduce impact.  SpeedTurf and TrackTurf use a reinforced foam base layer that offers superior protection against jolts and reduces lower back fatigue, muscular exhaustion, shin splints, and other chronic injuries that can be caused by improper shock absorption.

    The distinctive blended turf allows sleds and other weight-training objects to slide easily across its surface.  SpeedTurf and TrackTurf products are non-infill, which makes for a much cleaner surface.  The surface is easy to clean and disinfect, dramatically reducing the risk of staph infections and mold growth.  With the growing popularity in smaller scale gyms and personalized training the need for proper floor surfacing is in high demand.  SYNLawn’s brand new artificial grass products are leading the way in creating the perfect product for athletic floor surfacing.  With color options and customized logos, SpeedTurf and TrackTrack are ideal for any athletic agility and training facility.

    Why Buy American Made?

    american-made-work-boots

    Made in the USA.

    This may be a statement or slogan that you see quite often.  Does it really matter that you buy American made?  Easy answer.  YES.

    Can you get a cheaper product from a company that sends its money and workload overseas? Yes.  Will it be of the same quality that SYNLawn or any other USA made product obtains?  No.

    When you buy American made, you are not only supporting American manufacturers, but your fellow American workers, safe working conditions and child labor laws.  We truly don’t know how products are made or handled overseas.  US manufacturing is much cleaner for the environment, which should be quite important since you are buying artificial grass to do just that… save water and reduce the emissions that the normal lawn mower put off.

    Personally we have seen very poor artificial grass products coming from overseas.  Most non-American made products are made with a latex backing, which under any harsh weather conditions can deteriorate very quickly.  Excess heat or cold can cause the latex products problems.  We have also seen poor fiber structure, meaning the blades of the turf are pulled out easily.  Another question… how about the warranty?  Who knows how well the “manufacturer backed warranty” will stand with an overseas company.

    We truly believe in America and American made products.  We strive to make the best synthetic turf products for our consumers.  SYNLawn’s headquarters in based in Dalton GA, where our parent company has been producing synthetic turf products since 1965.

    Top 10 reasons why SYNLawn can make your summer better.

    1. No more mowing your natural grass in the 100+ degree heat.  SYNLawn, obviously, requires no mowing and very little maintenance.

    artificial-grass-for-play-areas-013

    2. No more worrying about keeping your grass green in the warm months between June and September.  SYNLawn is green all year long and will stay that way for many years to come.

    3. Slip and slide your way into a soft plush surface rather than a water filled mud pit that your natural grass accumulates. With drainage holes every 4-6” SYNLawn drains about 30” per hour, so you won’t have to worry about any flooding.

    4. Sleep below the stars, minus the creepy critters.  SYNLawn is uninhabitable for tics, fleas and other bugs, which makes for a much more enjoyable nights sleep.

    5. No more grass stains.  Mom forget the Spray and Wash.  Kids can jump, roll, fall and crawl their way around without the infamous grass stains becoming a problem.

    artificial-grass-for-play-areas-021

    6. No more allergies.  No more itchy eyes, runny noses or sneezing.  Relax and play outside without the worries of allergies caused by natural grass.

    7. Expect a cleaner swimming pool.  With SYNLawn you don’t have to worry about grass clippings or dirt making its way into the pool.

    8. Enjoy your “staycation” more than ever.  Relaxing in your own home while enjoying a beautiful backyard paradise.  Green grass that you don’t have to mow or take care of is a vacation in itself.

    9. A summer picnic is cleaner than ever, plus no more complaints from itchy legs from the kids.  SYNLawn is much cleaner than natural grass and if something is spilt, just rinse it off.  It’s that easy.

    10. Save on water.  SYNLawn can save up to 70% on your water usage.  Saving water isn’t just great for the wallet, but also great for the state of California and the environment.
