GardenMark Artificial Grass – Adding Space and Value
GardenMark Artificial Grass is a smart option for everyone who wants to increase the usable space of any size property while saving on maintenance costs.

Artificial grass is perfect for balconies, rooftops and courtyards. GardenMark offers three beautiful, water-permeable styles, which can easily be installed in places grass cannot grow or low maintenance is preferred. Homeowners can spend that extra time and money on their families. Bonus!
GardenMark is an excellent choice for larger, commercial properties. The beautification of industrial parks, airports, large office complexes and other landscaped areas is a growing segment of the commercial market. Why? Because it makes great business sense. Installing artificial grass on areas traditionally covered with landscaping creates a beautiful, vibrant environment while positively impacting the bottom line.
Municipalities are pleasing their residents and taxpayers using GardenMark products. Artificial grass has been installed on school grounds, daycare's, batting cages and dog runs all around the country. They create a fun, fresh, clean and mud free environment for families and pets. Artificial grass does not contain any allergens, harbor insects or discolor from pet urine.
There is one visitor municipalities and industry agree they do not want, Canadian geese. Recent evidence has shown that the geese prefer natural grass areas over artificial grass. Canadian geese can cause a great deal of property damage and are very dangerous near airports. Switching out some or all areas with artificial grass can be an effective tool in reducing their impact.
GardenMark Artificial Grass is GREEN
Working towards USGBC LEED certification for your project? GardenMark products can help! Artificial grass is recognized as a GREEN material that contributes to sustainable building. Housing and commercial developers appreciate the role artificial grass can play in obtaining USGBC LEED certification for their project, resulting in a variety of tax benefits. Using GardenMark products can help builders meet USGBC LEED criteria under several categories (SS61, SS62, WE1, MR4, and MR6.1) and can provide an attractive, cost effective way to create a sustainable project.
The environmental benefits continue well after the project is completed. GardenMark uses Durafill, a non-toxic, non-absorbent “synthetic soil” that is pet and environment friendly, preventing bacteria growth. Durafill’s trademark green silicone dioxide granules are cooler than black crumb rubber and more sanitary than silica. Durafill is a one-time application, keeping costs down.
The “greenest” aspect of artificial grass is in the simple upkeep. There are no harmful fertilizers, weed killers or pesticides leaching into the ground. No mowing means no noxious emissions from gas powered equipment and no grass clippings, which the EPA states are the third largest component of municipal solid waste in landfills.
Water conservation is vital in most areas of the country. Federal and local regulations regarding water use and reductions have become increasingly strict. The Synthetic Turf Council estimates that the use of artificial grass has resulted in the conservation of between three to six billion gallons of water in 2010. In addition to saving money on water bills, some cities offer rebates or credits for residents who install artificial grass as a water-saving landscaping alternative. This is good news for the environment and the artificial grass industry and will continue to create new areas of demand.
GardenMark Artificial Grass is Growing Employment
According to The Synthetic Turf Council, “synthetic grass for landscape, golf and other recreation applications is the fastest growing segment of the synthetic turf market.” In 2014, 40-45 million square feet of synthetic grass for landscape and recreation was installed. Artificial turf and grass installations are expected to increase significantly as residential, commercial and municipal construction markets continue to seek ways to reduce costs, save on maintenance and reduce environmental impacts,
In order to fill this growing demand, the market needs Certified Artificial Grass installers.
