Beware of Low Grade Grass

Buyer Beware of FAKES


Most  of the synthetic Grass / turf coming manufactured in China, and other synthetic turf that comes from other countries , is made with SUB-STANDARD RESIN. Polyolefin resins have become the primary choice for manufacturing artificial grass. Polyethylene (PE) and to a lesser extent polypropylene (PP) are used in yarn production while backing fabrics are predominantly made of PP.

Some Synthetic turf, especially 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 (China , Saudi Arabia , Turkey ……) artificial grasses as early as 18 Months  after installation (especially in the Middle East , due to extreme conditions)  With quality, American made yarn, you can expect a lifetime of 10 to 20 years in the Middle East , depending on usage.  Not all American made yarn is created equally either.  Many companies are skimping on the RESIN quality and using fillers.  It’s not just an issue with the yarn fibers; look out for poor quality latex backings as well!  Green People  made Grass/turf employs a urethane secondary backing .  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 !

Keep in mind that when you buy CHEAP TURF from a company that does not have a long-standing track record you could be in for an unpleasant surprise.  Green People   has had a proven track record since 2003 in the U.A.E and 1989 in the USA . Green People has been Guaranteeing and standing behind its products since 1989 , our Testimonials , and History of installations , in the U.A.E . speaks for itself.

Lead in Artificial Grass

Poor Climatic Dimensional Stability
All consumers including  Kids, Athletes, and Pets could be exposed by inhaling or swallowing lead-laced turf fibers or "dust" kicked up by those active on fields. Green People has the most stringent lead testing in the industry! and All our prodcuts are LEAD FREE.

Turf backing with poor climatic dimensional stability expands and contracts with changes in temperature and humidity causing seam ruptures , build up of mould and "line dancing." Green People boasts the most dimensionally stable DOUBLE urethane backing on all its products. One huge misconception in the industry concerning primary backing is the pic-rate. Pic-rate measures the tightness of the woven primary backing. For example, if you have the same pic-rate on two intertwined backings…say an 18/13 pic-rate, the thickness of the of the two backings can be completely different! The two thicker primary backings (one 18 pic and the other 13 pic) are much more stable than a thinner 18/13 primary backing pic-rate. How do you know if you're getting the thicker double primary? You don't, unless you go with a proven and trusted company like Green People

The Truth About Artificial Grass Warranties

Be SUSPICIOUS of companies that offer 10-Year Warranties. Why? Because ALL the yarn extrusion and backing manufacturers only give 8-Year Warranties. What happens when the product fails in year 9? The company that sold the project with a 10-Year Warranty must honor the warranty themselves. They can't fall back on the extrusion and backing manufacturers. In many cases, especially large square footage projects, the company that must honor a 10 Year-Warranty either finds themselves in a court battle or they go bankrupt. They simply cannot absorb the financial hit of replacing a huge project, so they usually go out of business. This has happened many times to many different companies in the artificial grass industry.

Here's the bottom line: THE WARRANTY YOU RECEIVE IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE COMPANY PROVIDING IT! That's why purchasing an 8-Year Warranty from a reputable company that has a proven track-record, like  Green People  founded in 1989, with a squeaky clean record (No judgments or lawsuits) is MUCH SAFER THAN PURCHASING FROM A COMPANY SELLING A 10-YEAR WARRANTY! Green People prides itself on stepping up to the plate should anything go wrong because they pride themselves on keeping a solid image and reputation. Additionally, a reputable company with a proven track record like Green People uses ONLY THE FINEST QUALITY MATERIALS AND WORKMANSHIP in order to avoid warranty issues. BUYER BEWARE: LOOK CLOSELY AT THE FINE PRINT OF A 10-YEAR WARRANTY! Many of these warranties are flimsy at best. You'll probably find that after the 8-years are up, there's very little covered in years 9 and 10. If you're comparing an 8-year warranty to either a 10 or 12 year warranty, IT'S NOT comparing APPLES TO APPLES! Green People Grass is made to last! Green People still has turf performing very well since its first installation in 1989!
