Artificial Turf - Another term for artificial grass.

- Used to refer to the ground immediately below the artificial grass.

- This simply means to brush synthetic turf in the opposite direction to its turf lean. Defibrillation can be done manually with a rake and/or push broom or mechanically with a motorized sweeper. Turf defibrillation gets out many of the 'unwanted' qualities that synthetic turf has when it's 'hot off the presses' from the manufacturer.

Turf defibrillation will get your turf piles standing toward the vertical position. Also, it will untangle any piles that are intertwined or braided. Finally, defibrillation will separate any 'conjoined' turf piles.

Infill - Turf infill is a granular material such as sand or rubber pellets about the size of sand grains. Infill is distributed on top of artificial grass to keep the lawn fibers standing (sand or rubber) and to give the synthetic lawn cushion (rubber).

Infill Turf - Artificial grass that requires some kind of granules (e.g., sand, rubber) to be spread on top of turf. Granules are raked and/or swept in between the lawn fibers. Sand or rubber granules serve to keep the lawn fibers standing. Rubber granules also give your turf more bouyancy.

Roof Gardens - An ideal use for artificial grass, easy to lay, low maintenance and usable all year round.

Seams - When installing artificial grass you will usually need to join different rolls together. Using seaming tape and glue gives a secure seam or join.

Synthetic Grass - Another term for artificial grass.

Synthetic Turf - Another term for artificial grass.

Non-Infill Turf - Artificial turf that does not require granules to be spread between the lawn fibers. Although, we recommend that some amount of infill be installed on all turf to reduce 'turf lean' over time.

Turf Lean - This is the tendency of synthetic turf fibers to lay away from vertical. Turf lean can be lessened with the use of infill.

Turf Weight - Measured in ounces per square yard (e.g., 42oz), turf weight is a measure of the amount of materials used in making the turf. Blade density, thickness, and height are all affected by Turf Weight.

Urethane Backing - The black coating on the back of artificial turf. Some turfs have multiple layers of urethane backing to support more traffic.
