Why Turf Manufacturers Are the Superior Option Over Big-Box Stores

April 28, 2023

When it comes to wholesale artificial turf, installers and homeowners have hundreds of options to choose from. However, one option that’s becoming increasingly popular is purchasing synthetic grass from big-box stores. 

While big-box stores may seem like a convenient and cost-effective solution, the truth is that they often cost you more in the long run. If you want the most for your money when investing in artificial grass landscaping, turf manufacturers are the superior option with several clear benefits.

More Product Options

One of the primary advantages of purchasing artificial turf from a wholesale synthetic grass manufacturer is the sheer number of products available. Specialized artificial turf manufacturers will have a wide range of products to choose from, each with different colors, textures, sizes, and applications.

This wide range allows installers to find a product that will fit their client’s exact needs and preferences. Due to the amount of inventory they need to carry across all product categories, big-box stores tend to have just a few products to choose from. As a result, these may not meet your project’s needs and can leave your client dissatisfied.

Clear Product Information

Similarly, turf manufacturers offer the installer a wealth of product knowledge and information that big-box stores can’t supply. Since they’re just the turf seller and not the manufacturer, big-box stores don’t tend to have the specialized knowledge and product specs necessary to make a well-informed decision.

The turf manufacturer, on the other hand, can walk you through the specs of each product and help you find the wholesale synthetic turf product that will best suit your project. Choosing your artificial grass product is a decision you’ll have to live with for upward of 15 years, so it’s important to be well informed to make the best decision for your functional and aesthetic needs.

Higher Quality

The low prices that big-box stores offer often seem too good to be true — and when it comes to synthetic grass, that’s because they usually are. Big-box stores are able to offer such low prices because they’re selling low-quality products that cost even less to manufacture. Cheap wholesale turf is typically imported, which usually indicates that they’re using cheap materials and aren’t undergoing strict performance and safety tests. 

USA turf manufacturers, on the other hand, are required to use high-quality materials that are safe for kids and pets and have met U.S. safety standards. Although they cost a bit more upfront, wholesale turf from an artificial turf manufacturer is guaranteed to be high-quality, safe for the family, and long-lasting. This longevity should be further guaranteed by a manufacturer warranty that secures it against defects for up to 10 years.

More Versatile Applications

If you need a square of temporary turf for a low-stakes project, big-box products may do the job. However, if you’re making a long-term investment for your home or business, you’ll likely want a high-quality turf product that can stand up to a wide range of uses.

Big-box stores typically only carry generic landscape turf that isn’t tailored to specific needs. Turf manufacturers, by contrast, offer dozens of specialized synthetic grass products such as playground turf, artificial grass putting greens, and pet turf. When it comes to kids and pets, don’t they deserve a high-quality solution tailored to their playing habits and safety needs?
