Frequently Asked Questions

What is Synthetic Turf?

Synthetic turf is a specialised surface made up of synthetic fibres with the functionality and look of natural grass. Commonly used in applications from residential lawns and commercial applications right up to the highest level of sports arenas.

How often do you have to replace Synthetic Turf?

Although no certified manufacturer guarantees Synthetic Turf to last more than eight years, high quality Synthetic Turf can last between 10 to 15 years, depending on the wear and tear. Limonta Sport now provides Synthetic Turf that is 100% Recyclable.

Does Synthetic Turf fade?

Most technologically advanced synthetic grass products feature built-in U.V. inhibitors. These U.V. inhibitors are incorporated within the yarn process and will allow the yarn to hold colour even in the most harsh and sunny conditions. The turf colour is designed to last 10 to 15 years.

How does Synthetic Turf help the environment?

Throughout recent years, synthetic turf has been utilised as an alternative to natural grass. Not only does synthetic turf stay green all year long, but it also aids in multiple aspects of environmental conservation.

1. Water Conservation:

Within the past few years, many states across Australia world suffer from extreme drought and water rationing is unfortunately becoming commonplace.

Fact: According to the Southern Nevada Water Authority USA, one square foot of synthetic turf can save up to 55 gallons (208 Litres) of water in one year.

2. Pesticides:

It may rid your plants and grass of annoying bugs, weeds and other overgrowth, however, pesticide chemicals have proven harmful side-effects that not only hide in your lawn but eventually seep into your local water table. According to the Cancer Research Center-UK, studies suggest pesticides could be linked to cancers such as leukemia, brain tumors, breast and prostate cancer.

3. Carbon Emissions:

Machine powered gardening equipment like lawnmowers represent five percent of air pollution in the U.S., according to the Environmental Protection Agency. A synthetic turf requires minimal upkeep with machine powered gardening equipment and therefore would eliminate the need for these items.

A synthetic turf lawn not only benefits the end user, it has multiple environmental advantages. By eliminating water and chemical waste as well as reducing carbon emissions, artificial turf can be the solution to many on-going environmental problems.

Is Synthetic Turf safe?

Synthetic Turf is non-toxic. As long as you choose the right Synthetic Turf supplier.

How do you care and maintenance Synthetic Turf?

Ongoing care and maintenance are structured to provide longevity and maintain top shelf playability for your home or commercial application.

A twice-annual professional service and regular care (undertaken by Greenplay Australia) in strict accordance with our Maintenance and Operation Manuals. This will maximise usage for the synthetic surface and save precious money in the long term, most notably towards the end of the surface life expectancy.

Although debris can often make your lawn appear that much more natural, you will need to rake the lawn as you would a normal grass lawn to clear away any debris’ decomposition. A carpet rake or a leaf blower are great tools for this type of clean up!

How is Synthetic Turf made?

It all starts with white plastic pellets that act as the base material which are combined with green pellets that hold the colours, U.V. stabilisers and additives.

Equipment melts the plastic together and extrudes it through a perforated steel plate. The strands exit the steel plate into a trough of water which solidifies the synthetic grass mixture. A machine pulls the strands through a large pulley and keeps them separated while they move on to the next station. Rollers stretch the strands until they become as thin as real grass. Spools hold the synthetic grass strands. Once a spool has been filled, different colour strands are woven together to form multiple synthetic yarns. The yarn is prevented from slackening by traveling through guides while it is wound around a giant spool.

Mesh fabric merges with synthetic sheeting while the synthetic yarn travels through a tubing to a tufting machine. A tufting machine is like a giant sewing machine and contains over 200 needles to hook the yarn through the sheeting.

While the turf is being tufted, small knives underneath cut the ends to make the yarn appear like grass blades. The backing is moved to a coating roller which picks up adhesive to apply to the turf’s backing.

The adhesive is dried in both open air as well as an enclosed setting. As the turf exits the drying, hot pins burn holes into the turf for drainage.

After undergoing multiple inspection points, including measuring the turf fiber length and minor trimming, the turf is moved to a device that simulates football cleats to affirm the turf’s durability.
