Is Artificial Grass Safe for Children & Pets?
Yes, artificial grass is safe for children and pets to play on. It is made from synthetic materials that are safe for kids and dogs. Our turf products have been lab-tested to ensure they contain no lead or other harmful chemicals. Additionally, artificial grass does not require the use of pesticides or fertilizers like natural grass does.
In fact, many pet owners choose artificial grass for their yards because it is durable, easy to keep clean, and free of messes. Additionally, artificial grass is hypoallergenic and pollen-free, so you and your child’s sinuses can rest easy. Artificial grass is often used in children’s play areas and on playgrounds to improve safety.

What is Artificial Grass Made of?
Artificial grass is made out of resilient compounds like polypropylene, polyethylene, and nylon. Manufacturers add other compounds to incorporate different features into their products, like the UV-Inhibitors that help to extend the life of our turf products.
We’ve worked with our manufacturers to develop turf products that are equipped with antimicrobial technology that is infused into the turf’s backing during manufacturing. We call this antimicrobial additive “Microbe-Safe™.”
This feature is especially valuable on fake grass for dogs as it helps prevent the buildup of odors and bacteria from dog urine.
Does Artificial Grass Drain Water & Pet Urine?
Artificial grass is designed to drain water and pet urine quickly and efficiently. The two most common types of turf drainage are backings that are hole-punched and fully-permeable.
We’ve also introduced our own proprietary backing that is a hybrid of hole-punch and fully-permeable that we call “DUAL FLOW.” This helps to prevent flooding and pooling, and also helps to keep the grass blades dry and free from mildew.
In addition, artificial grass drains pet urine quickly and effectively, preventing odors and keeping the turf clean and fresh. As a result, artificial grass is an ideal choice for any application where drainage is a concern.
Can You Install Artificial Grass on Dirt? What About Concrete?
Dirt: Artificial grass should not be installed directly on dirt. Dirt turns to mud when it rains and allows water to pool on the surface. It also isn’t solid enough to keep the turf in place and would develop lumps, divots, wrinkles, and more. An artificial grass installation is a delicate process that requires a few specific steps in order to be done correctly.
The first thing that needs to be done is to create a base layer out of Class II road base and crushed limestone. This base needs to be level and compacted in order to provide a solid foundation and to help facilitate drainage before the artificial grass is installed on top of it.
Once the base is prepared, the artificial grass can then be laid down, trimmed, and secured into place. The final step is to infill the artificial grass with silica sand infill or another infill material.
Concrete: Yes, artificial grass can be installed on concrete but the installation process differs significantly. Installing artificial grass on concrete requires less preparation, but we recommend using a drainage membrane to facilitate drainage and prevent flooding.

What are the Most Common Artificial Grass Applications?
Artificial grass is extremely versatile and is commonly used in a variety of residential applications and commercial applications on properties throughout Waco, TX.
Artificial Grass for Dogs (Pet Turf) – Dogs are the most common reason that people choose to install artificial grass. Pet-friendly artificial grass won’t develop brown spots from dog urine, nor allow your dog to dig through it. This highly durable and versatile ground cover will remain lush, green and perfect-looking, even with the most active dogs.

Outdoor Living Spaces (Roof, Deck & Patio Turf) – The versatility of artificial grass makes it very popular for outdoor living spaces that won’t allow grass to grow, or that just need an aesthetic boost. Ideal Turf has installed artificial grass on rooftops, balconies, decks, walkways, patios, and countless outdoor living spaces.

Golf (Backyard Putting Greens) – Backyard putting greens have become increasingly popular in recent years. There are several reasons for this trend. First of all, artificial grass is more durable than natural grass, so it can stand up to heavy use. Secondly, artificial grass requires less maintenance than natural grass, so it’s a more convenient option for busy homeowners. Finally, artificial grass provides a consistent surface for practicing your putting skills, and you can customize your putting green design, from the shape of the green to the breaks, you can even adjust the ball speed.
We recently published an in-depth buyer’s guide that explains how to choose the best artificial grass for backyard putting greens.
Swimming Pool Decks & Surrounds (Artificial Grass Around Pools) – Swimming pool areas like pool decks and around swimming pools are an increasingly popular choice for residential and commercial properties. Artificial grass offers an aesthetically pleasing, lush, soft, slip-resistant surface that improves the safety of pool areas.

How Long Does Artificial Grass Last?
You can usually expect 20 – 25+ years of service from your artificial grass. Ultimately, how long your artificial grass will last is going to depend on a few things like:
- Quality of the turf product
- Efficacy & quality of the installation
- Amount of foot traffic
- Frequency of maintenance
What Maintenance does Artificial Grass Require?
Artificial turf maintenance is very easy.
- Clear solid debris (i.e. twigs, leaves, etc.). You can do this by hand or with a leaf blower.
- Rinse turf with a hose. This will remove any dirt, dust, or pollen that’s accumulated.
- Replenish infill annually
- If you notice any matting, use a stiff-bristle push broom to fluff the fibers and return them to their upright position
- Dog owners will have to remove solid waste the same way you would for natural grass. Dog urine should be rinsed with a hose once a week to help prevent the buildup of odors and bacteria.
Does the Weather Affect Artificial Grass in Waco, TX?
Texas summers are hot and muggy, with temperatures here in Waco, TX, hovering around 95°F or higher! Fortunately, our turf products are manufactured using high-quality materials that can withstand whatever mother nature decides to throw at it. Regardless of the temperature or weather, your artificial grass will remain lush, green, and natural-looking year-round!
For Waco residents that would like to discover more ways to conserve water and learn about current water restrictions check out “Water Conservation – City of Waco, TX.”
How Hot does Artificial Grass get in the Sun?
Artificial grass does not stay as cool as natural grass which has water running through it, but it does not absorb and radiate heat like pavement, rock, or brick. Even during Waco’s summer heat, your lawn will remain pleasantly functional. On days that are extremely hot, a quick spray down with a hose will quickly cool it down.
We recommend using T°Cool® Infill with your turf installation because it cools the artificial grass by 30° – 50°F through evaporative cooling. It is also antimicrobial and will work alongside the backing to prevent the buildup of bacteria and odors.
Can I Install Artificial Grass Myself?
Yes, you can, but we don’t recommend it. Installing artificial grass properly requires some heavy-duty equipment like a sod cutter or bobcat, as well as other tools and equipment that you’d have to rent or borrow and learn how to use properly.
Beyond the tools and equipment required, it also takes specific techniques at different stages of the installation that our crews have honed over years of installing artificial turf.
Those are just a few of the reasons why we suggest working with a trustworthy and reliable artificial grass company. With a professional and experienced turf installation crew installing your artificial grass, you can rest assured that it will be installed properly the first time and will last for years or even decades to come.
Ideal Turf offers a 1-year installation warranty and most of our turf products come with a 15 – 20 year manufacturer’s warranty.
