What is Artificial Grass made of?

At Lifestyle Lawns, we’re passionate about transforming outdoor spaces with our premium quality artificial grass. While our products provide low maintenance benefits that homeowners, dog owners and businesses crave, it’s equally important to understand the science and craftsmanship behind what makes our turf so exceptional. In this blog, we’ll explain what artificial grass is made of and offer insight into the meticulous process that goes into crafting each blade.

So what is the secret sauce?

As the foundation of our turf, butadiene styrene rubber (SBR) ensures durability and stability. SBR serves as the backing material, providing the necessary support for the turf while enhancing drainage capabilities. At Lifestyle Lawns, we prioritise quality, which is why our SBR backing is engineered to withstand heavy foot traffic and environmental elements, ensuring longevity and performance.

Polypropylene plays a crucial role in preserving the vibrant aesthetics of our artificial grass. Used primarily in the backing material, PP offers exceptional UV resistance, safeguarding against colour fading and degradation caused by prolonged sun exposure. Additionally, PP’s moisture resistant properties make it an ideal choice for outdoor installations, ensuring that our turf remains resilient and visually stunning year-round.

At Lifestyle Lawns, we understand the importance of authenticity when it comes to artificial grass. That’s why we utilise polyethylene fibers to create the lush, natural-looking blades that adorn our turf. PE not only replicates the softness and appearance of real grass but also boasts exceptional durability and resilience. 

The secret to our turf’s lifelike appearance lies in the intricate design of our monofilament fibers. Crafted from high quality polyethylene, these individual strands are meticulously engineered to mimic the texture and movement of natural grass blades. Whether it’s the softness underfoot or the natural swaying in the breeze, our monofilament fibers ensure that our artificial grass looks and feels indistinguishable from the real thing.

What sets us apart?

It is not just the realism of our grass, but also the unique combination of factors like fiber density and pile height that we’ve fine tuned to perfection. Through extensive research and development, we’ve designed our fibers to replicate the texture, resilience, and aesthetic appeal of New Zealand “natural” grasses.

This attention to detail ensures that every inch of our artificial grass exudes authenticity and charm, providing homeowners and businesses with a premium outdoor experience.

Can your turf be recycled?

While our artificial turf is designed to be recyclable, we currently do not have the facilities to facilitate recycling in New Zealand. However, we aim to introduce recycling facilities that will enable us to responsibly manage the end of life cycle of our turf. This future capability ensures that, after the typical 10 year lifespan of our artificial turf, it can be recycled in an environmentally friendly manner, bringing us in line with international sustainability standards.

Our dedication to sustainability extends beyond the immediate horizon, and we are actively working towards a future where our products not only enhance landscapes but also contribute to a more circular and eco-conscious economy.
