Is your turf safe for my family?

Yes, all our synthetic turfs are made using polymers that are clean and safe with no contaminants.

Are all synthetic turfs Australian made?

All ASST synthetic turfs are Australian made using Australian Yarns. Unfortunately, 95% of our competitors import their turfs which means their customers get a short warranty and a short lifespan. Some synthetic turfs are also marketed as Australian made but are only assembled here using imported materials. Just ask where the Yarn is from.

Can you drive on synthetic turf?

We get asked a lot if you can drive on synthetic turf. Well, the answer is YES, as long as the turf is installed correctly with the correct amount of subbase underneath the synthetic grass. This makes Silverback Lawn™ the perfect choice for customers with verges, pets, children or large commercial areas.

Can you install synthetic turf on concrete or paving?

Yes, as long as the surface has no big cracks and is level, just be aware that drainage will be limited with concrete surface.

Can you get melting from reflective heat?

Yes, Australian made synthetic turf can withstand high UV and temperatures but there is a risk of reflective heat reaching in excess of 100Deg on a certain angle. This will cause the yarn to curl giving a different appearance. This can be avoided by putting a small border in the affected area. If your real turf or plants burn in that area, then this will be an indicator.

Can you provide and installation service?

Yes, ASST has many years of experience with installing synthetic turf. We can complete every step of the installation including earthworks. Our installation managers are all company employees and pride themselves on a professional finish and make sure your property is left clean and tidy.
