How durable is artificial turf? Artificial turf can withstand the toughest of pro teams, a playground full of active children or a backyard with frisky pets for many years. Artificial turf is practically maintenance free and much stronger than natural grass. And it’s beautiful. I know when I had questions about artificial turf, I just contacted the folks at Synthetic Grass Pros for information about the many advantages of using artificial turf for lawns, home putting greens, playground surfacing and commercial landscaping. They’ll be happy to show you samples and answer any questions you may have.
