SYNLawn Bay Area Joins the Green Business Bureau

At SYNLawn Bay Area we have recently become green business certified with the Green Business Bureau (GBB), an international membership organization, in our efforts toward environmentally friendly product innovation and sustainable business.

Donating to SPCA International to save animal lives

We are proud to announce SYNLawn’s partnership with SPCA International in an effort to rescue dogs and to support our troops by reuniting them with their long-lost buddies through the Operation Baghdad Pups program. Through this program, SYNLawn will be donating part of its proceeds from pet turf sales to sponsor at least one of these military rescue events in 2017. In addition, there is a direct benefit to you, our client:

SYNLawn's Commitment to the Environment

At SYNLawn we are committed to creating high quality environmentally friendly and sustainable products that withstand the test of time.

When it comes to your artificial grass, you want to know you are purchasing products that are safe for your children, pets, yourself and the environment. SYNLawn's EnviroLoc backing is made from soy bean plants which are a renewable resource. SYNLawn is 100% recyclable and safe for the environment.

The soy bean in SYNLawn's backing is generated by local U.S. farmers and...

Synthetic Lawn Law Passed!

Its official, California’s AB-349 authored by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) was signed yesterday by Governor Jerry Brown. What does this mean for all you California homeowner’s governed by a homeowners association (HOA)? You are now free to install artificial turf in your yard without fear of reproach or fines! Synthetic turf is now included among a wide variety of drought tolerant landscaping as it can directly reduce outdoor water use to meet the Governor’s mandated 25% water use reduction across the entire State of California.

Why Parents Choose SYNLawn

When it comes to your kids, nothing is more important than their safety. When it comes to selecting the perfect play set, safety is always your number one concern. After selecting your kids’ play set, consider the playground surface underneath. What is underneath the playground surface is just as imporant as what is on top.

There are many options available for playground surfaces. Mulch, pea gravel, rubber, and other artificial turf products have been used for playgrounds. However, when it comes to your children’s safety and enjoyment, none of those systems can compare to the SYNLawn Playground System...

SYNLawn Factory Tour

We went out to Dalton, GA for SYNLawn distributor training and to tour SYNLawn's manufacturing facilities and was duly impressed. Being part of a vertically integrated manufacturer in itself is impressive. Seeing it first hand is astounding. Millions of square feet of warehouse space, rows and rows of yarn, thatch and grass rolls as far and as high as the eye can see… and all of it made in-house.

At one facility we watched yarn get made, dyed, rolled up into massive spindles and sewn into the primary backing. At another facility just up the road we watched our secondary backing get applied and melted to the primary backing and yarn.

The Benefits of SYNLawn

Synthetic grass and artificial turf have wonderful benefits they bring to every installation. You certainly won't have to mow it, again! Think of the impact you will have on reducing your own carbon footprint and use of harmful chemicals!

SYNLawn is extremely low maintenance, and, when taken care of, can last an extremely long time

Originally, sports field projects drove the development of most turf products and the benefits would trickle down to the residential and commercial landscape user, but that has changed. Today's synthetic grass and artificial turf yarns deliver outstanding durability, safety, and value, so many homeowners are opting to...

Beat the Drought with SYNLawn

Hiking water prices, brown lawns, short showers and dirty cars. California residents are feeling the effects of this exceptional drought in full force. We are now entering our fourth year of drought.

To add to our woes, the Santa Clara Valley Water District, the East Bay Municipal Utility District and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission are all considering hiking water rates up to 30 percent higher this year. These water agencies serve about 80% of the Bay Area’s population. Their reason for hiking the rates: they are selling a lot less water as customer’s conserve as a result of the drought. Of course they are reluctant to make such a decision as it directly impacts homeowner’s wallets in a major way. Their job however, is to...

Upgrade to SYNLawn

Looking to upgrade your lawn from one that gets spotty, wilts and withers to one that lasts 500% longer and stays beautiful year round? Tired of installing sod after sod only to find out you can’t water because of a drought? Well we have the solution for you, especially for those of you with pets and those lovely brown grass patches our furry friends tend to leave behind. SYNLawn’s grass can withstand heavy foot traffic (including dog scratching) and all pet waste. No longer will your dog’s urine cause your grass to brown in spots and wither away. SYNLawn drains at 30 inches per hour and can handle pooper scoopers as well. At this point you might be wondering, how do I clean my grass? Your SYNLawn can handle leaf blowing, shop vacuuming, nylon raking and an rinsing. We also have...
