ProGreen Southern California prides itself on offering the highest quality artificial turf in the market. As a true manufacturer of synthetic turf, all of our artificial turf products are 100% manufactured in our USA-based facilities, meaning that all of our products are 100% American made.
The Los Angeles synthetic turf market is heavily saturated with Chinese turf. Many times the turf that comes from China uses a low grade resin, which means it can fade or melt, due to poor UV stabilizers in the resin, or wear prematurely, due to excessive fillers. We’re seeing many failures of foreign artificial grasses as early as 3 to 4 years after installation. With quality, American made yarn, like what you get from ProGreen, you can expect a lifetime of 15 to 30 years, depending on usage.
It’s not just an issue with the yarn fibers; look out for poor quality latex backings as well. Most U.S. made turf employs a urethane secondary coating as opposed to latex, which is what you want. Most latex-backed turf products that come from China use too much filler in the latex, causing the backing to crack and crumble. This could lead to a nightmare situation that could put any turf company out of business.
