Will Artificial Turf Last a Long Time and Require Maintenance?

Artificial turf is an alternative choice for homeowners, businesses, and sports facilities. Its aesthetic and similar resemblance to natural grass offers lower maintenance and durability. At Goat Turf, we offer a variety of turf solutions. Here are a few details about how synthetic grass will last a long time and how it requires little maintenance:

Material Durability

Artificial turf provides a lifespan that depends on the materials’ quality and the installation process. Goat Turf’s SYNLawn artificial grass provides high-quality turf designed to last. Here are some key features:

EnviroLoc™ Backing System

EnviroLoc Backing System technology locks in turf fibers. This significantly reduces the chances of the fibers pulling and helping them not wear down over time. This contributes to the turf maintaining its lush, green appearance for many years.

Omega-shaped Blades

The shape of these blades provides resilience and durability, especially for areas with heavy foot traffic. The blades bounce back to their original shape, which helps prevent matting and keeps the turf looking fresh and upright. Brush over the blades every so often to provide a refreshed look.

Expected Lifespan

Factors such as the frequency of use, the environment, and the level of maintenance play a significant role in the artificial turf’s lifespan. Goat Turf’s SYNLawn products are engineered to withstand harsh weather conditions and constant use. We make sure that our products offer a long-lasting solution for your landscaping needs.

Maintenance Requirements

While synthetic grass requires less maintenance than natural grass, some routine tasks are necessary to keep it looking its best. Debris removal, such as leaves or twigs, may accumulate on the surface. A leaf blower, rake, or gentle broom will help keep the turf clean and tidy. To remove dust and small particles, rinsing the turf with hosed water offers an easy cleaning solution. This is also helpful if you have pets, as it helps eliminate odors and maintains hygiene.


The fibers in the turf can become matted over time, especially in areas with heavy foot traffic. Brushing the turf helps to keep the fibers upright and looking natural. Our team at Goat Turf recommends using a brush with synthetic bristles for this task. Regular brushing also helps to maintain the turf’s cushioning and resilience.

Weed and Moss Control

While the turf significantly reduces the presence of weeds, it is not completely immune. Weeds may occasionally grow around the edges or through the infill. Applying a weed killer and manually removing visible weeds helps manage this issue. Moss and algae may develop in shaded or damp areas. Treating these areas with appropriate moss control products helps prevent any buildup.

Benefits of Artificial Grass

Artificial grass provides various benefits for home and business owners. A few of these benefits include:

No Watering Necessary

Artificial turf does not require watering, which reduces water usage. This offers several advantages in regions with water restrictions or drought conditions. The water savings alone can make artificial grass a cost-effective and environmentally friendly choice. 

No Mowing Required

Maintaining a natural grass lawn involves regular mowing, which can be time-consuming and requires purchasing equipment like lawnmowers. Artificial grass eliminates the need for mowing. This frees up time and reduces the costs associated with lawn care equipment and fuel.

Chemical-free Maintenance

Natural grass lawns often require fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides to maintain their health and appearance. These chemicals can be harmful to the environment and pose health risks to individuals and families. Synthetic turf does not need these chemicals, which can make it a safer and more eco-friendly option.

Cost Savings

The cost includes the turf’s price, base preparation, and installation. It also includes long-term savings on water bills, lawn care equipment, fertilizers, and professional lawn care services. This helps offset this initial investment. The reduced maintenance costs and extended lifespan of high-quality artificial turf, such as the products offered by Goat Turf, can provide a substantial return on investment. A well-maintained turf can enhance the curb appeal and value of your property.
