Sustainable artificial grass refers to products designed and manufactured with a strong emphasis on environmental friendliness and durability. This means that throughout the production, usage, and eventual disposal of the artificial grass, consideration is given to its impact on the environment.

Sustainable artificial grass provides a solution in areas where natural grass struggles to thrive and as an alternative to paving. Despite being made of plastic, sustainable artificial grass also offers advantages over natural grass. Traditional grass requires significant amounts of water, regular application of pesticides and fertilizers, and intensive maintenance. Artificial grass eliminates these needs, creating a more environmentally friendly alternative than many people realize.

Choosing Sustainable Artificial Grass

The artificial grass industry is focusing on innovation and circularity. LimeGreen® takes the lead in this with ONE-DNA™ artificial grass, produced from a single material, polyethylene (PE). This pioneering design enables complete recycling without the need for material separation, allowing the artificial grass to be reused directly for new applications at the end of its lifespan. Thus, ONE-DNA™, or monomaterial artificial grass, seamlessly aligns with the principles of the circular economy.

in Artificial Grass

When choosing artificial grass, it’s important to consider lifespan, environmental friendliness, and costs to make the most sustainable choice for your needs. Below is an overview of types of artificial grass in order from most sustainable to least sustainable.

Some advantages of artificial grass:

Long lifespan

One of the advantages of artificial grass is its long lifespan. Unlike natural grass, which needs to be replaced regularly, artificial grass lasts for years without losing quality. Moreover, artificial grass products are made of recyclable materials, allowing them to be reused at the end of their life cycle.

Water permeability

Artificial grass is designed to be highly permeable to water, helping to solve waterlogging problems without the need for frequent watering. It also requires minimal maintenance, which not only saves time and energy, but also significantly reduces water consumption.

Health and safety

Although there have been concerns about the safety of artificial turf particularly the use of rubber granules in sports pitches, residential synthetic turf is free of such materials. This makes it a safe option for families, children and pets.

Sustainable choices

Sustainable artificial grass offers an attractive solution as an alternative to paving and in places where natural grass would not stand a chance. With benefits such as reduced water consumption, no need for harmful chemicals and the potential for recycling, circular artificial turf represents a step towards a more sustainable future. The ONE-DNA™ concept demonstrates a commitment to sustainability and innovation and provides a blueprint for the future of the synthetic turf industry.
