Durable - While excessive use may cause bare patches to develop in a natural grass lawn, ForeverLawn synthetic grass is very resistant to wear and engineered to be durable and long lasting. Certain products are designed to withstand heavy foot traffic, while others are for low to moderate foot traffic.
Low-Maintenance - Finding an ideal low–maintenance natural grass option for your landscape is all but impossible. The constant watering, weeding, fertilizing, mowing, and patching of natural grass not only add toxic chemicals and noise pollution into the environment, but also reduces the amount of time you can enjoy your landscape.
Attractive - Unlike some types of artificial turf and other surfacing solutions that simply look fake and out of place, ForeverLawn artificial grass has a natural, realistic appearance that mimics both the look and feel of natural grass.
Versatile - ForeverLawn artificial grass products cover a range of needs for different applications—from pet facilities to playgrounds to athletic fields.
Cost-Effective - Even though the initial investment in synthetic grass is significant, when spread across the life of the product there is actually a cost saving element to having it installed versus natural grass because of significant water savings and eliminating the need for fertilizers and reseeding.

It is difficult to quote the price of a project over the phone due to the many variables such as geographic region, product chosen, ground prep requirements, size of the area, access to the installation site, removal requirements, base work, drainage, and irrigation particulars that determine project cost besides the price of our premium synthetic grass. We offer dozens of artificial grass products that differ in color, blade height, quality, purpose, and construction, resulting in differing prices. The price per sqft is more complicated than you might expect. In order to mobilize our crews and installation equipment, we have specific built-in costs that need to be covered. Smaller jobs generally come with a higher price per square foot for these reasons. Larger jobs come with economies of scale. We are happy to help install jobs regardless of size; however, we are unable to charge the same per square foot price across all sizes.
For these reasons, it is best to contact ForeverLawn Northeast Indiana directly to schedule an appointment and free consultation to look at the area, take measurements, document installation requirements, explain the differences in our premium turf products and answer any additional questions, providing you with specific recommendations and the options that will serve you best for years to come.
ForeverLawn is truly Grass without limits! We can - and have - installed over pavers, concrete, on balconies and rooftops, indoors and many other places where clients have wanted to add a touch of soft green spaces. Every installation is different and has very specific requirements -- from drainage mats and grid products to glue downs and rollouts.
Important details to focus on when planning an indoor installation include drainage requirements (if any) and proper HVAC systems, safety padding requirements, maintenance procedures and the purpose of the installation. An onsite consultation with a ForeverLawn Northeast Indiana representative is advised when considering an indoor installation.
Here are some of the most common general care suggestions:
- Regular maintenance includes the removal of debris by picking it up, using a blower, raking with a plastic leaf rake or with a power broom.
- Clean up spills by hosing down or rinsing with water. Paint spills or similar mishaps can be cleaned with a cloth and soap and water. If necessary, a mild household cleaner and brush can be used.
- While all our products are pet-friendly, solid pet waste should be picked up and urine should be rinse periodically.
Our grass is made of non-absorbent materials that allow you to clean up most spills without staining.
Clean as much of the spill as possible with a clean rag first.
Water, a mild detergent, and in some cases a stiff bristled nylon brush, can be used to clean most spills or drops on the grass.
More permanent items such as paint may be able to be removed but require a lot more effort. Use of harsh or damaging cleaning chemicals, solutions, or solvents may limit the liability claim. Further information regarding cleaning materials is available upon request from ForeverLawn.
At ForeverLawn, we take safety very seriously. Our products are not only safe but are often safer and more healthy than natural grass. Materials used in our turf products are non-toxic to humans and animals. Any rubber infill that is present in our products is non-toxic and will in no way harm either children or pets if swallowed. A material safety data sheet is available upon request.
ForeverLawn products do not harbor bacteria and we offer an antimicrobial agent built into the blades of select products for a cleaner, safer environment. Many homeowners with dogs choose ForeverLawn Landscape synthetic turf to create a lawn that’s both beautiful and pet friendly.
ForeverLawn Playground Grass synthetic turf meets and exceeds ASTM 1292 safety standards up to 15 feet and is ADA compliant.
K9Grass synthetic turf by ForeverLawn is a premium product designed specifically for dogs, offering amazing benefits to pet parents and dog facility owners such as a Flow-Through Backing™ for maximum drainage and AlphaSan® antimicrobial technology built into the blades.
Mold and mildew are no issue since our products are comprised of non-absorbing materials with a drainage base specifically designed to direct water away from the grass.
Since artificial grass has no organic value, the bugs have nothing to feed on and therefore will move on to a yard with real grass. Fire ants have a hard time coming up through the drainage holes and will generally find an area outside the grass that has less resistance. Of course, you will occasionally find bugs landing on and crawling on the turf, but it does not harbor insects.
Synthetic grass does not absorb and radiate heat, so while it may become hotter than natural surfaces like grass and dirt under direct sunlight, it cools down quickly and stays cool under shade or cloud cover.
Other synthetic surfaces such as pavement, rock, or brick—and even natural surfaces like sand on the beach—will get hot and continue to radiate heat even after direct sun is blocked. But just as so many people choose to sit out on the sand to enjoy the benefits of the beach, our customers choose ForeverLawn synthetic grass for its many benefits that far outweigh the chance of it getting a little hot.
When buying artificial grass, it is important to think about the long-term performance of the product. ForeverLawn is manufactured in the USA from the highest quality materials including high-grade UV stabilizers. While some turf companies cut costs with cheaper materials that show fading or UV degradation quickly, there are ForeverLawn installations in some of the highest sun environments that date back to 2004 and still look great.
The ForeverLawn Closed Loop Warranty expressly warrants against ultraviolet degradation for 15 years.
