I bought turf from the Global Syn Turf supplier here in Mississippi about 5 years ago and it is still in perfect condition. I just went back to the same company for the same turf for another project in my yard. I have about an acre sized yard and their is a section I am building out for my kids to put a trampoline and swing set. This time I bought a padding to go underneath the artificial turf so it is softer if my kids fall off of the trampoline or swing set. I have to say it makes a big difference. This time I tried a new infill called T-Cool infill which is supposed to make the grass much cooler. There is a video I watched on YouTube that shows the artificial grass with T-Cool infill was 30-50 degrees cooler than the artificial grass that had no infill. This new infill really works. This will make the synthetic turf much cooler for my kids to walk on for the hot summer days here in Mississippi.
I highly recommend this company, their network of dealers and their artificial turf products and accessories.
