The synthetic turf industry is booming, and everyone is either looking to get in on the action honestly or deceptively with a cheap product. Online retailers and middlemen abound when looking for a place to buy, but how do you know the difference between quality turf (like Courts & Greens) and a cheap imitation?
A couple ways to check involve, imports and comparing costs.
Many overseas sellers ship materials and turf back and forth through muddy trade laws and questionable origins. Retailers might claim to know their product, but these labels are often falsified and forged. Anyone can make a convincing green carpet that looks pretty for a few months before falling apart or fading.
Costs can also be a red flag. If the price looks too good to be true, it probably is. Even with cost-saving phrases like “factory direct” and “prime US made” justifying what you’d save, it’s more likely than not you’ll end up paying more for it later.
