Frequently Asked Question

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Where can the water free lawn be installed?
Virtually anywhere, including any areas where natural grass can’t grow (i.e. desert areas and extreme cold climates). All you need is a fairly level surface with a porous base that allows rainwater to seep into the ground through perforated holes in the backing of the lawn grass

 

How is the Mirage Turf different from other synthetic turf?
The difference between Mirage turf fibers and other synthetic turf begins with the manufacturing process. Our specially designed spring set turf fibers are manufactured to interlock with each other, creating a realistic bent fiber look, just like "real bent grass" greens.

 

Note: Most deep sand-filled synthetic turf has straight end fibers that must be sand filled and periodically rolled with a heavy water-filled sod roller. Our turf fibers have been manufactured to stand-up naturally. Unlike other synthetic fibers, our fibers have been made with a dulled finish, rather than made shinny. This helps create a natural, real looking green.

How does the cost of the water free lawn compare to installing a natural real grass lawn?
When you compare the costs and tasks required for a natural real grass lawn care, such as watering, mowing, weeding, edging, fertilizing, and spraying of toxic pesticides, it’s only a matter of time before the lawn actually pays for itself.

 

Water usage continues to be a concern throughout Florida because of continuing population growth and development. 

As water usage continues to be a concern the demand for waterless synthetic grass continues to grow.  According to the Public Utilites companies, homeowners use twice as much water (66% of total water consumption) as city businesses.

FAQ

Landscape/turf irrigation is the main driver – representing 60% of water consumption!  

In response to the need to reduce water consumption there is NO GREATER alternative than the use of synthetic lawn!  

As a homeowner, if you are going to install landscape requiring irrigation, be sure to find a contractor that is certified.

However, as a simpler alternative, you should really consider the cost savings associated with going with completely waterless synthetic lawn and xeroscape plantings!  

Synthetic lawn prices are also an attractive incentive.  Check out our cost comparison between synthetic lawn prices and the prices for traditional lawn.

As is easily concluded, synthetic lawn prices for installation are negligible compared to the lifetime return on your investment.  Synthetic grass is an application that pays for itself.  To add to the cost savings, a number of municipal water districts offer credits/rebates for the installation of synthetic lawn at your home.
