I wanted to have artificial turf installed in my yard but wanted to know what type of infill to put in the grass. What I learned from Global Syn Turf is infill helps the turf stand up and keeps wait on the turf to keep wrinkles out and holds the turf down. Global Syn Turf also educated me on all the infills available to install in my grass. They have brown silica sand in two sizes, green silica in two sizes, WonderFill in two sizes, ZeoFill and T-Cool infill. My question is what is the difference and what are the pros and cons of each. First, I found out the smaller size grain size is for putting greens and the larger size infill is for residential and commercial artificial turf applications. The brown silica is the lowest level and least expensive infill you can buy. Next would be the green silica infill, it is green in color to match the color of the grass so you don't see it. Global Syn Turf told me the infill is down in the grass and you really don't see it. At most you would see the infill on the edge where the turf meets the hardscape. The WonderFill is an infill that is a true green infill with no other colors. This infill is coated with acrylic and is Anti Microbial. This doesn't allow the infill to absorb water or dog urine and is a premium infill. The ZeoFill is an odor absorbing infill that absorbs the urine smell from pets. This too is a premium infill. Lastly is the T-Cool infill, this infill keeps the grass cooler. This infill absorbs water and slowly releases the vapors and cools the artificial turf down 30-50 degrees. Now what infill to go with? In speaking with Global Syn Turf we both agreed that the T-Cool Infill would be best for my application. It will help keep the grass cool in the summer months in North Carolina. It is anti-microbial to help with the dog urine on the turf. Our turf has been installed for two weeks now and we love it. I wanted to write a great review for this company for helping me decide what turf infill was best for me.

I get all my turf and accessories from GST. They have the biggest selection for both. I usually order sand in giant pallets so I need a supplier that can keep up with my bulk buying habits. Their customer service team is always helpful in case there's any shipping issues or defective accessories as well. Love doing business with GST and I also love how professional everything is, thanks.

My landscaping company recently partnered with GST. So far, the best seller has been the W-Blade series. It seems customers want a middle ground between price and quality. Although the S blade is high quality, and sells well, it seems most "enthusiasts" I've encountered love the W blade series. I'm currently in the process of requesting more samples of pet turf and the super natural series as I've heard good things about them. The only complaint I have is that they have too many SKUs for me to keep up! It'll take me some time to figure out which ones are right for my company and customers. However, I definitely understand it now when people say that GST has everything you could ask for as a supplier.

My customers can't get enough of GST turf recently. With the recent lock down in Florida, a lot of small businesses have used this as an opportunity to renovate. As a result, my turf sales have actually increased these past few months. With that being said, I needed to find a consistent supplier that could supplement my fast company growth. GST was the only supplier that was able to supply me with enough turf for my jobs on a consistent basis. I was also partnered with a couple of smaller suppliers but they only had a few types of turf to choose from and many were always out of stock. It's unfortunate to see the smaller suppliers shut down due to Covid, but it really makes me appreciate the bigger suppliers who are struggling as well, so thank you.

Not quite sure how GST is able to offer such high quality turf at their low prices, but they manage to do so. Before choosing them as a supplier I was researching my options and found that most other suppliers either offer low quality products or are too expensive. GST hits the sweet spot with their affordable high quality grass. Not to mention, it's super easy to install and looks incredible in the sun.

Global Syn Turf was the only company of all the companies that were upfront about the Pros and Cons of Artificial Turf. As synthetic grass is gaining ground and a reputation for being eco-friendly because it requires no maintenance, no fertilizers or pesticides, no mowing, now water, etc. etc. The artificial turf today does look so real and natural it fools even the human eye. After all my research I have to side with the idea that artificial turf is good for the environment. The amount of water artificial turf saves is enough for me. This world is very short on water and if artificial turf can help solve that problem then I am ok with that. With all that said I had artificial turf installed and I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed it. There really is no maintenance, certainly no watering and the turf is green all the time. I would have to say that artificial turf

I had artificial turf installed by the Global Syn Turf dealer here in North Carolina for over one year now. I am very happy with the synthetic grass and installation from this company. I called Global Syn Turf this past week to ask them how to care for and maintain the artificial grass. Some companies say artificial grass is has no maintenance, but that is not true. Leaves fall on the lawn, things spill on the lawn, dogs do their business on the lawn, etc. etc. Well that means artificial turf does have care and maintenance. Global Syn Turf sent me a great "Care and Maintenance Guide" that really seems to help. First, everyone with artificial turf should own a carpet rake. Carpet rakes have very stiff bristles that penetrate the artificial turf to brush the turf up or to rake leaves and debris off the turf. Nothing else will work as well as a carpet rake so go get one today. Another thing, artificial turf can get warm so you can do the following; leave the sprinklers in and turn them on as needed to clean turf and cool it down. The sprinklers also work well to flush the grass if you have dogs that do their business on the grass. If you have issues with heat you can also use awning covers. If you ever get a white film on the turf it is most likely from over spray from sprinklers in the planter and the calcium from the water is on the turf. If this is the case you can use CLR from the hardware store to take it off. If you have an odor from pet urine you can use a pet deodorizer sold by the turf manufacturer Global Syn Turf. If the artificial turf is matting over don't worry it is not broke. All artificial turf will have a tendency to lay over with foot traffic. Use your carpet rake to brush the turf up. I want to thank Global Syn Turf for being there to support their artificial turf well after it is sold.

I live in Charlotte, North Carolina and I was looking for someone to install artificial turf. I moved to Charlotte about 1 year ago. I had artificial turf in my yard in California and I loved it. It saved water and maintenance and I loved it. Now that I live in North Carolina I am looking to have artificial turf installed. I called Global Syn Turf again who referred me a dealer to install my artificial turf in California and they answered on the first ring. It is good to know they are open for business. They sent me new samples and referred me to their artificial turf supplier here in North Carolina. The dealer here is a landscape supply store which had samples and is right down the street from my house. They referred me to a couple of installers that were local and I had them both out to my house to give me a bid. Both installers were very reasonable so I just chose one that I liked better and gave him a deposit to install my artificial turf. It is funny that it is cheaper here in Charlotte that it was in California to have the turf installed. Now that the grass is installed I am happy and all my neighbors are asking all about it. They want to know how it is installed, who installed, what grass company I went with. I will be giving Global Syn Turf so many referrals I am thinking I might want to become a sales rep. Just kidding, but I do want to give Global Syn Turf a big shout out.

I was on the internet looking for a piece of turf for my back patio. I didn't need an installation, I just wanted apiece of turf to lay down over my patio. There are so many companies that sell different size pre cut rolls of turf, however one of them would cut the artificial turf to the size I wanted. I understand that artificial turf comes 15' wide, but no one I could find would sell me a piece of turf cut to size. I finally came across a website called GlboalSynTurf.com and spoke with a representative. This company seemed so eager to help me and wanted my business. When I spoke with the lady on the phone she told me they would cut the turf to any length I wanted. I told her I was looking for a 15' x 15' piece of thick artificial turf to put on my patio so I could put my patio furniture on it she said there would be no problem. She sent me some samples of artificial turf and I chose the Riviera Monterey and she said she would refer me to a Global Syn Turf dealer in my area. The dealer in my area called me and let me place my order right over the phone and told me the artificial turf would be delivered to me in about 3 days. I finally receive my artificial turf and put it on my patio and it looks amazing. I want to thank everyone at Global Syn Turf and their local dealer for all their help and professionalism.

GST has always been the top supplier of artificial grass in my eyes. The turf they offer is top of the line and despite the extreme weather fluctuations in my area, it seems to always hold up well. I found that a lot of other suppliers have slightly cheaper turf, but you get what you pay for. The turf I get from them usually doesn't last very long and my customers aren't satisfied in the long run. If you're looking for a good supplier, then GST is your best bet.

Turf seems to be the next big thing out here in Alabama. I'm seeing an increasing number of homeowners make the switch the artificial grass rather than trying to maintain their real grass lawns. It could be that people are starting to see the value that turf has and that it's a great investment to make. If you haven't already, request some samples from GST and see which models work best for you. They have every turf available on the market so you're in good hands here.
