Why North American Made Artificial Turf is Better for Canadian Lawns
Choosing your artificial turf can be a confusing decision. With so many suppliers and types of turf available, how do you ensure you make the right choice?
There are many things to consider when investing in your artificial turf lawn. Some of the key considerations include:
2 Life span
3 Look & feel
Where your turf is manufactured plays a key role in your turf’s quality, which in turn affects its performance, appearance and longevity.
North American Vs. Imported Artificial Turf
While imported turf can be tempting due to its price, when it comes to artificial turf, you typically get what you pay for. For example, artificial turf made in China is produced using cheap materials, reduced specs, and lower manufacturing standards.
Foreign made artificial turf products do not undergo the strict testing that American turf products do. They may not be safe for children and can even be toxic. You do not know what you are actually getting as it can be difficult to get any records of chemical recipes or batch runs.
Other Considerations for Your Artificial Turf Installation
Home and business owners make the common mistake of shopping for artificial turf based on price, and assume that all turf is created equal.
The price of American-made artificial turf is usually priced higher than other turf products that are imported from China and other countries. If you’re wondering if US-manufactured artificial grass is worth it, consider this:
Lower costs of manufacturing can mean that your supplier is cutting some corners in the production and testing process, and using low grade ingredients and fillers. This ultimately leads to poor-quality products that can quickly fail when installed and exposed to the sun, foot traffic, pets, and weather.
Some usual issues found with imported turf product quality include:
• Color Fading
• Seam Failure
• Shedding & Fiber Failure
• Drying Out
• Cracking of Turf Backing
With North American made turf, you will find a higher consistency in quality and regulated consumer safety standards.
