NEGATIVE IMPACTS OF SYNTHETIC LAWN/TURF
No pollinators or other wildlife are able to rely on synthetic lawns for their survival.
Off-gassing from the synthetic lawn produces an unattractive toxic chemical odor.
The surface temperature and air temperature above synthetic lawn increases significantly during heat waves.
Polluting leaf blowers are consistently used to remove leaf litter and other natural debris from synthetic lawns.
Toxic petrochemical herbicides are consistently used to prevent “weeds” from growing in or around the synthetic lawn.
Recycled tire bedding ends up in storm drain.

DON'T MOW, LET IT GROW so pollinators have a place to go. #dontmowletitgrow
