Why You Should Choose Duraflo Backing for Your Synthetic Grass Project

What is DuraFlo Backing?

Typically synthetic grass is manufactured with a urethane backing system.  While urethane is certainly functional, Easylawn is excited to offer Challenger turf products with the DuraFlo backing system.  DuraFlo is a polyolefin material that outperforms urethane in just about every category and it is a 100% recyclable product!  Some of the advantages of the DuraFlo backing include:

PROVEN TECHNOLOGY

The hot melt polyolefin adhesive systems have been used globally in the heavily regulated geotechnical engineering field for the better part of a decade. These geosynthetic products are designed to be installed under-ground, providing strength and support to engineered soil structures for 100 years and beyond. Furthermore, the specialty carpet industry uses this technology to add value to molded automotive carpets, modular carpets and more. So, the technology is tried and true.

THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS

The process incorporates an all polyolefin system which includes:

  • polyethylene adhesive applied to the back of a tufted griege synthetic turf,
  • polypropylene nonwoven geotextile is then applied as a secondary backing reinforcement.
  • low-temperature bonding method, without fillers or bonding agents, completes the process.

No other processes are needed to achieve the required tuft bind, permeability or any other performance properties needed.

DIMENSIONALLY STABLE

Polyolefins absorb almost no moisture, as compared to other backing adhesives such as urethane and latex, which absorb as much as 5% to 6% of their mass. Absorbing and releasing water leads to expansion and con-traction of the turf product as ambient conditions change. With the DuraFlo system, this creeping effect is negligible, and therefore makes a more stable turf system and puts less stress on seams Duraflo does not have a tendency to contract, thus making installation, repairs, and patches more installer friendly!

PERMEABLE

The DuraFlo process does not need a hole-punch system to create permeability, as do most urethane systems. In fact, with the damaging hole-punch process, Easylawn products with the DuraFlo system are more than twice as permeable as compared to traditional urethane backed product. Perhaps more importantly, our DuraFlo system is far less likely to clog than a hole-punched urethane backed product.

PET FRIENDLY

Because the polyolefin material absorbs almost no moisture and drains uniformly, the DuraFlo system helps to prevent pet urine from being trapped on the surface of the turf which in turn helps to control odor issues.

THE BOTTOM LINE

When you look at the benefits that the DuraFlo backing system provides over traditional urethane backings at zero increased cost, it really is an easy decision to make.  If you want the best product for your artificial turf project, go with the DuraFlo!
Synthetic Grass

How does artificial grass perform in the winter months?

As we sit in the dead of winter, we were recently asked how artificial grass would perform and feel when the temps are close to freezing.   I am happy to say that all of Easylawn products and installation techniques will hold up to even the coldest temps.  Generally, we don’t face harsh, cold conditions in the southwest, but as I write this blog it is snowing!

When the grass is cold or frozen,  the blades will feel fairly brittle to the touch, but rest assured, the grass blades will not break or tear.  If the synthetic lawn area is going to have snow on it, it will generally melt faster than the surrounding areas due to the grass acting as a blanket.  The underneath will stay slightly warmer thus melting the snow quicker.

As spring approaches and you feel the itch to improve your property, please keep us in mind for all your landscaping needs.  We also install flagstone, concrete, patio, landscape design, decorative rock and many other things.

Albuquerque’s Artificial Grass Pleases Customer!

Easy Lawn went over the options in artificial grass for our customer in Albuquerque, NM, along with the benefits that it would provide for her. The customer wanted us to start the installation on Friday, because she wanted to be home when the artificial grass was being installed. Our installers arrived promptly on time on Friday, then immediately went to work on getting the ground ready for the artificial grass. The installers got the job done successfully, then asked the customer to take a look at her new, lush, beautiful lawn. She came and looked at the artificial lawn and said, “Amazing!” The customer starting talking with our crew, and said she didn’t have time to deal with her current lawn, so she went on Google and found EasyLawn. The customer continued to say that she read through all of our customer reviews, and decided to call us out for a quote.

We thanked her for choosing EasyLawn, but didn’t realize that the customer returned to leave her own special review for us. The review that she wrote said, “EasyLawn did an amazing job with my artificial lawn. The installers arrived on time, then worked hard to finish it ahead of schedule. The lawn was affordable, and looks wonderful. Great job. Thank you.”

Artificial Grass Installed, Reducing Maintenance in Las Cruces, NM

Our customer wanted us to install artificial lawn at his residence in Las Cruces, New Mexico. He told us he was tired of spending every weekend pulling weeds, mowing his lawn, and trying to get it to look good. He was also tired of spending so much money and not getting results. EasyLawn understood these complaints and went over the artificial lawn options with him. We arrived promptly to start prepping the ground for the artificial grass installation. The crew worked for two days until the artificial grass was installed, then asked the customer to please take a look before we left. He anxiously looked at his new lawn and said, “I am amazed at the difference. The lawn has never looked so good before. Thank you, so much.” We asked the customer where he heard about our services, and he said he noticed us at a neighbors. He thought their lawn turned out great, but he didn’t think he could afford having the artificial grass installed until he decided to get a bid, and was thrilled at the price. The customer said he would definitely refer us to all his family and friends, because we did a great job, and the price was very affordable.

EasyLawn would like to thank you for trusting us with your lawn. We appreciate when our customers refer our services. We would like to remind you that we offer putting greens, and synthetic grass.

Lush Artificial Lawn Installed For New Home in Albuquerque

We were scheduled for an artificial lawn installation for our customer who just had a house built in Albuquerque. He wanted an artificial lawn installed, so he wouldn’t have to worry about lawn maintenance and he could have a lush lawn immediately. The EasyLawn crew arrived promptly, as scheduled, and immediately started to get the ground ready for the installation. The crew worked throughout the day, then returned the following day to finish the installation.

Once the lawn was successfully installed, we invited the customer to take a look at his new lush lawn. The customer looked over the lawn and said, “It looks better than I expected!” The customer told us he so glad that he never has to mow his lawn again. We talked with him about all of the benefits he would receive with his new lawn, then asked him how he found out about EasyLawn services. He said he did a search on Google, and our company came up. He read the reviews our previous customers wrote, which included great things about our services, so he decided to get a quote.

It turns out he returned and left us a review, too. Here is what the customer said, “EasyLawn did a great job installing my new artificial grass. The grass looks wonderful. They arrived promptly on time each day, and worked until the job was done. The price surprised me because it was much lower than I had expected. I recommend EasyLawn’s services to everyone!”
