Global Syn-Turf: Artificial Grass & Installation Supplies

Replacing natural grass with synthetic turf is a successful water conservation practice that saves millions of dollars in maintenance and irrigation costs annually. However, artificial grass surfaces temperatures in hot, dry climates exceed those natural turf fields.

According to researchers at the University of Nevada, artificial grass temperature can get as high as 169 degrees Fahrenheit, which significantly limits its recreational use during hot summer months. While the thermal properties of artificial grass are more critical for parks and athletic fields, it can become a problem for homeowners as well, especially if you have kids or pets. Artificial grass may not get as hot as hardscape, sand, or concrete pavements, but it also not as cool as natural grass.

If you plan to install artificial grass, you can avoid the overheating by choosing synthetic fibers and infills, that help to reduce the surface temperature.
