As the popularity of artificial turf grows, so does the number of questions people are asking. If you’re a homeowner or business owner considering artificial grass, we’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions about synthetic grass to help you make an informed decision and dispel any myths surrounding artificial grass.
What is residential turf made from?
Artificial grass, also known as residential turf, replicates the look and feel of natural grass, giving you a low-maintenance, aesthetically pleasing and durable solution for your outdoor or indoor spaces. The turf is made from advanced technology extruded polyethylene and polypropylene.
How long does residential turf last?
When it’s properly cared for, artificial turf can last decades. Here at Luxe Turf, we offer great warranties with the premium quality synthetic grass we supply and install.
Is synthetic grass safe for pets?

Unlike natural grass, it doesn’t need any pesticides or fertilisers and it’s perfect for busy areas within your home or business. Pet mess can be picked up or hosed off easily. We recommend picking up pet waste as soon as possible, and if needed deodorise with a vinegar/water mix and an enzyme-neutralising cleaner which you can purchase from your local pet shop.
