Is Artificial Grass in Texas Safe?

What Makes Artificial Grass in Safe - texasturf 1

If you’re dreaming of a lush, low-maintenance lawn, residential artificial grass is a fantastic solution. But with so much information (and sometimes misinformation) out there, it’s crucial to understand the safety aspects. 

At TexasTurf, we believe in complete transparency and are proud to source the safest, highest-quality artificial grass products in the US.  

The Science of Safe Turf: Materials and Certifications

Let’s break down what makes our fake grass in Texas safe for your family, pets, and the environment.

Artificial Turf Fibers

The artificial grass fibers we use are typically made from polyethylene or polypropylene. These plastics are incredibly versatile and common in everyday products due to their inert nature, making them safe for skin contact and minimizing risks from allergies or sensitivities. In fact, you can find them in everything from food packaging to kids’ toys and even medical items like surgical masks.

The Backing

Our artificial turf product lines often feature a backing made from high-performance polyurethane enhanced with bio-based technologies using soybeans grown in the United States.  This innovative backing supports sustainability without sacrificing performance.

The Infill (Optional) 

Certain artificial grass installations use infill to help the blades stand upright.  At TexasTurf, we discuss infill options with you in detail, recommending safe choices or even specializing in no-infill installations for a bacteria-resistant, low-maintenance experience.

World-Class Certifications

Our primary turf lines, AGL Grass and Turf Casa, proudly hold European certifications, renowned for their strict safety standards. They undergo rigorous testing for lead, heavy metals, and any potentially harmful migrating substances. Additionally, they comply with the EN 71-3 Safety of Toys standard, demonstrating their suitability even for children’s play areas.
