I received a call from a San Francisco Bay Area artificial lawn owner the other day. She had just watched our television show on the KRON Bay Area Bargains – The Green Edition: onelawn.
She lives in the San Jose area and has two dogs. Her dogs had trashed her sod lawn and as a result, they had been tracking dirt and mud into the house so she installed a fake lawn for her dogs as a solution to her problem. Unfortunately, the synthetic grass that she had installed for her dogs required infill (a combination of sand and black crumb rubber – a product made from old car tires). The infill was getting into her pet’s paws and was being tracked into the house. Furthermore, the infill made cleaning up after the dogs in the yard nearly impossible.
During the show she had learned that our product onelawn® required no infill and she wondered how that was possible. I explained that artificial grass for dogs did not necessarily need infill. Infill is only required if the blades do not have enough support to keep them standing up straight. The onelawn® artificial grass has more blades per square inch, it is extra thick and it has an added thatch layer below the blades, all of which combine to make it the perfect no-fill artificial lawn. And because it has no infill, cleaning up after the dogs is easy: you just scoop the mess up and then hose the area down. NO MUD and the synthetic grass drains at a rate of 4” an hour so it dries very quickly. No more muddy paws and wet feet!

There may be a new meaning to the phrase “healthy lawn.” Artificial lawns are great for saving time and costs in terms of maintenance, but recent research could also prove that they are better for your health. Could it be that Bay Area and San Jose synthetic lawn owners are healthier on average? Well, consider this: it has been found that people who spend time maintaining their traditional sod lawns are putting themselves at risk. Certain lawn chemicals and fertilizers as well as the toxins from gasoline fumes and spills have been linked to significant health defects.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, which tested 9,000 individuals for research, the average person harbored 13 different types of pesticide in their bodies. While the presence of pesticides does not necessarily mean that a person will become sick, scientists universally promote alternatives to pesticides in order to minimize the possibility of health risks.
“While the government develops separate safety levels for each chemical, the Center for Disease most recent study shows that we are exposed to multiple chemicals simultaneously,” Dr Margaret Reeves of the Pesticide Action Network told Men’s Health Magazine. “The synergistic effects of multiple exposures are not known, but research suggests that even at very low levels, the combination of these chemicals can be harmful to your health”.
Eco-Conscious Bay Area homeowners can’t help notice their local gardening department shelves stacked with products that promise to cut down on invasive pests and weeds. Clearly they are not good for the environment and they can’t be good for you either.
Another less talked about risk is that the ingredients marked on the outside of the bottle combined with that of other products can produce unforeseen reactions. Another thing that they don’t mention on the warning labels is that such substances can remain in your body for several years.
For Bay Area homeowners, artificial lawns have often been a conscious choice for their individual health but also a choice for a healthier environment. Not only does an artificial lawn require little to no ongoing maintenance, but it can also help keep your body in better condition by avoiding exposure to hazardous substances like those that are routinely applied to sod lawns.
By installing an estate quality artificial lawn you can reduce your risk of exposure to any potential negative effects of chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers and gasoline . A synthetic lawn also helps you avoid the lawn maintenance chemicals associated with a variety of health risks.
