1. Are all synthetic grass systems the same?
Definitely not!  We have unique products, designed for durability and realism, with a premium backing system and an advanced, unique seaming method. DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass is defining the curve with unmatched and industry leading quality.

 2. Is  DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass pet friendly?
Absolutely. In a low-use backyard any of our products will do fine. However, if you have multiple dogs or are looking for a kennel area, a specialty product available from ForeverLawn, is the synthetic turf you want. It is designed specifically for dogs with a new construction featuring the ForeverLawn Flow through™ backing and antimicrobial blades for maximum protection.

3. Can animal waste harm DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass?
Since the grass is porous, the urine will drain through to the ground beneath and will not stain the fibers. The feces can be scooped and discarded and the remainder hosed off without harming the grass in any way. However, normal type turf systems have restricted drainage and limited cleanability. This is why ForeverLawn developed a variety of specialty products.

4. Will the DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass fade?
Ultimately yes. All synthetics will fade, ours and others. However, DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass is treated with a UV inhibitor to protect against fading and UV degradation, and we are going on seven years of real life experience in the southwest with our turfs, and all is well. Plus, we offer an eight-year limited warranty.

5. Does DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass have a warranty?
Yes, our warranty covers fade and excessive wear for eight years.

6. Is DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass affordable?
DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass is priced on a per-square-foot basis. The initial installation price varies slightly for each of our four product styles, beginning with an entry level price point offering.  In the long run, not having to mow, water, or treat DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass, will lower your ongoing maintenance costs significantly versus natural turf.


7. How much does the DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass cost?
That's a tough one due to many the variables. Your best bet is to contact your local ForeverLawn dealer. They will be able to provide a site survey and give you accurate answers to all your questions and specific recommendations on the options that will serve you best for years to come.

8. Will water drain through the DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass?
Yes, our grass is perforated throughout to allow for water to properly flow through into the drainage base that has been applied underneath.

9. Is the grass susceptible to mold or mildew?
Due to the non-absorbing nature of the materials used and the drainage base designed to migrate water away from the grass, mold and mildew is not an issue.

10. How hot does the grass get?
The grass does not stay as cool as natural grass that has water running through it, but does not absorb and radiate heat like pavement, rock or brick.

11. Is DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass flammable?
The grass is non-flammable.

12. Can I save water by using DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass?
According to the water management statistics, 75% of your monthly water bill is for outside use! With DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass in place, there's never a need to water your lawn.  That can add up to a lot of avoided water use!

13. What should I do if I spill something on the grass, such as paint?
Our grass is made of non-absorbing materials that would allow you to simply clean up any spill without staining. A complete care guide will be mailed to you after the completion of the job that will tell you how to care for your grass and clean any spill.

14. Does DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass harbor any bugs?
Since the grass has no organic value, the bugs have nothing to feed on and therefore will move on to a yard with real grass. Fire ants have a hard time coming up through the drainage holes and will generally find an area outside the grass that has less resistance.
