The polymers used in our premium backing are created from Soybean plants—a stable and 100% renewable resource. This backing is fully permeable - which means that rain water doesn't get trapped in the backing. It adds dimensional stability to the blades of grass, as well as added protection between the blades of grass and the ground below.
BioCel™ Turf Backing Systems, by Universal Textile Technologies (UTT) was awarded the Grand Prize for Environmental Initiatives by the the Buildings Magazine at NeoCon in Chicago in June, 2004.
Many of the ForeverLawn products use BioCel™ Turf Backing Systems. You can be confident that when you choose a ForeverLawn product, you are not only receiving a premium turf, but a high quality backing as well.
ForeverLawn uses a knitted backing for the K9Grass, Playground Grass, and SplashGrass lines of products. Because of the unique needs of these specialty turfs, ForeverLawn uses a knitted backing with flow-through technology that is unique in the synthetic turf marketplace.
Benefits of a knitted backing:
The knitted backing allows for rapid drainage, efficiently removing liquids from the turf
Allows for a denser blade structure, eliminating the need for infill
Blades of grass are knitted into the backing, preventing pets from digging up or easily removing the blades
