A Product That Defines Logic

The experience that over 19 years in the turf installation industry brings is more valuable than most would think. 99% of the people considering turf, and most other installers for arguments sake, can’t remember what turf was like in 1998.

There are a couple of logical reasons for this. Firstly, the turf products looked horrible. The fibers were bright green and shined so bad that it looked like a giant Easter Basket. Consumers would often see it and never consider giving it a second look. Most installers don’t remember it because they were…well…under 10 years old.

The owners of ProLawn not only know these products inside and out, but have worked diligently with manufactures to solve the problems that these materials created. Over 19 years of turf installation experience means that they know what a product will look like and perform like after year 2, 5, 8, 12 and 19 years.

ProLawn CEO Mike Clark often says, “I’m the one who people called if they weren’t happy, we had to push significant changes to create a product that people would look at every day and think that having turf installed was one of the best decisions they ever made.” ProLawn offers a product line that truly creates those clients.

Below are the 4 most common complaints faced over the past 15 years, and how ProLawn’s turf products have been engineered to improve the way they look and perform.

1. Pet Odors – Turf has to be cleanable. If your dog urinates on dirt, it will begin to smell over time. ProLawn offers an exceptional drainage system that is completely non-absorbent. By placing ProLawn Turf over a sub-base that percolates very quickly, you create a system that is easily cleanable.

2. Shine – ProLawn’s products do not shine! …. and that is awesome. However, how they achieved it is the real advantage. We will gladly explain this when we stop by to see your project.

3. Matting – If you have a turf fiber that is narrow, super soft, or has limited shape to it, and you step on that fiber to the point where it bends… you are stuck with a flat lawn. ProLawn offers a fiber shape that is phenomenally resilient. You really have to see it to believe it and we are happy to show you. Give us a call!

4. Heat – ProLawn offers turf products with the latest Heat Reduction Technology. Available test results prove that ProLawn will test up to 17% cooler than the most common turf products. That being said, please understand that turf is plastic and it will still get hot. If you are trying to sunbathe on turf in 120 degree heat, you may get more a burn than you bargained for. ** If you operate a day care facility in Ramona, don’t call us.

  • ProFlow™ Backing

    ProLawn uses the patent-pending ProFlow Backing System that allows for 100% drainage throughout the entire surface. The ProFlow backing is comprised of two heavy gauge woven layers, one five-pick layer, and a final coating of a high-viscosity polyurethane compound. Before this compound is applied to the turf it’s injected with air, creating passages that allow for free flow drainage. ProFlow will provide a percolation rate that stays consistent throughout the life of your turf system.

  • Engineered Fiber Shapes

    One of the most common complaints with artificial turf is the tendency of the fibers to mat down over time under foot traffic. Most turf products use fibers that have minimal, if any, shape. ProLawn offers a different fibers profiles that allow the turf to stay upright, including Diamond shaped, S shaped, and blended Diamond/S shaped products. ProLawn also offers state of the art dual fiber landscaping turf, which improves the structural integrity of the turf system by an impressive amount.

  • Low to No Shine Options

    Another complaint with turf products is that the fibers, once installed, are very shiny and look very unrealistic. One sure fire way to pick out a fake lawn is the lustrous appearance of morning dew….except it’s the middle of the day and it is 90 degrees out! ProLawn Turf’s entire product line is made with a unique low to NO luster yarn to reduce reflection and give the turf a much more realistic look. This reduces glare also helps to promote cooler temperatures in direct sunlight.

  • Dimensional Stability

    ProLawn’s turf products, from the blades to the backing system, are comprised completely of polyolefin materials. Polyolefins absorb almost no moisture as compared to other backing adhesives such as urethane and latex, which absorb as much as 5% to 6% of their mass. Absorbing and releasing water leads to expansion and contraction of the turf product as ambient conditions change. With the ProFlow system, this creeping effect is negligible, and therefore makes a more stable turf system and puts less stress on seams.

    • “ProLawn was a pleasure to work with, from the initial consultation and design help to the quality of the finished product, we were very pleased. A year later the Project looks as good as the day it was installed. Your staff was easy to communicate and work with and I would recommend ProLawn to anyone considering going to artificial turf!”
      Mr. Ford
    • “We are very happy with our new lawn. We get lots of comments like how much is your water bill, how much water does it take to keep the lawn so green. You have to tell people it is not real grass before they realize it is artificial. Save's me time as well. Free's me up to do other things. It will be very beneficial now with going to Level 2 drought restrictions this summer.”

    • “Your organization recently installed another turf area at one of three separate residences we have owned and/or spec’d over the past five years. As previously experienced, your installation team performed very professionally and knowledgeably. We believe that, at an appropriate site, this investment does add value as well as enjoyment to the property. Regards...”

    See Why Pets Love ProLawn

    “How does ProLawn hold up to pets?” is one of the most common questions asked. Not only is it a very common question, it is really the most important question a pet owner can ask. ProLawn’s line of turf products is engineered to be one of the most PET FRIENDLY products available on the market.

    For many years, one of the most common complaints with artificial turf has been the odors caused by pet urine. The primary reason for this lingering odor has been the system of drainage. Most turf products offer a solid urethane or latex backing system with holes punched in the backing for drainage. Looking at this drainage system logically will show its obvious flaw. Most of the urine that gets into the turf does not magically find its way to one of these small holes (unless your dog has incredible aim). Therefore, the urine sits in the artificial turf. Unfortunately, urethane and latex backing systems are proven to absorb 5%-6% of their mass in moisture. When the urine absorbs into the turf backing, it is virtually impossible to completely get rid of the urine, and therefore, the odors.

    ProLawn Turf’s 100% permeable ProFlow backing system is designed to allow moisture to drain through 100% of the products backing. This drainage system offers far higher permeability rates than the urethane / latex backed turf products. This unique characteristic makes ProLawn one of the most pet friendly products available on the market today.

    The short answer to the question is that most turf products are not a very good solution for pet owners. However, have been engineered with pets in mind, ProLawn Turf is a great solution for pet owners, kennels, and pet boarding facilities anywhere.
