To calculate the amount of infill for synthetic turf, divide the pile height of turf by two, multiply it by the square footage of your area and 0.0833333; you'll get the number of required cubic feet. Multiply this number by the infill weight per cubic feet, and you receive the infill weight in pounds. Silica sand, for example, weighs 80 lb/per cubic feet.

Clean up the surface from debris with leafblowers or rake. Hose off pet waste. To remove any spillage, use regular cleaner, rag or brush, and then rinse with water.

The cheapest types of infill are silica sand and green sand. You can use eco-friendly Super-Fill sand coated with Arch Biocide known for its antimicrobial properties. Zeolite organic infill controls odors and is ideal for pet areas. TCool infill helps to keep the turf temperature down 50% on hot, sunny days; it also adds the benefit of the anti-microbial addictive, BacShield.

The prime benefit is no maintenance. You don't need to mow, water, fertilize, control weeds, or re-seed artificial lawn. It always looks beautiful. For the arid west, conserving water can be the number one motivation for installing synthetic turf. For pet owners, having clean, dry outdoor space is a treat. For parents, safe, cushioned, chemical-free environment for kids is the priority.

Under regular traffic, artificial grass lasts up to 25 years. It won't fade or flatten over time. Global Syn-Turf has a 15-year warranty on all turf products.

The face weight (or pile weight) is the weight of the turf pile per square yard measured in ounces. It should not be confused with the total weight as it includes the weight of the backing. Face weight is used to determine the turf durability.

Cut the turf to fit your area. Clean the surface with soap and warm water to ensure the adhesion. Glue around the edges and seams. Lay out the grass. Stretch it. Trim off any excess turf. Compress glued areas. Allow 24 hours for adhesive to set.

I believe so. For 1,000 square feet of natural grass lawn, you spend approximately $19,500 in 10 years period; $2,000 in installation costs, and $1,700 in annual maintenance (watering, mowing, sprinkler repairs, re-seeding, fertilizing, weed control, etc.) It may cost you $4,000-$6,000 dollars to install 1,000 sq. ft. of synthetic grass, but there are no upkeep expenses.
