In recent news, California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed a new law allowing local governments to ban the use of artificial grass amid growing environmental concerns. This legislation responds to increasing worries about the potential health risks associated with PFAS (per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances) found in some synthetic turf products.
As a trusted provider of artificial grass solutions, Always Green Turf understands these concerns. We want to assure our customers that our synthetic grass and turf products are entirely PFAS-free, ensuring a safe and enjoyable green space for all.
PFAS, or per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, are a group of man- made chemicals that have been widely used in a range of products for decades. They are resistant to heat, water, and oil, which makes them very attractive for products like non-stick cookware, waterproof clothing, and firefighting foam.
Although these substances have been incredibly useful in many industries, there is growing concern about their impact on the environment and human health. PFAS do not break down easily, and if released into the environment, they can contaminate water sources and persist there for a very long time.
Exposure to PFAS has been linked to various health issues, such as developmental delays, thyroid disorders, and certain cancers. As experts continue to study these substances, it is essential to remain vigilant about their presence in consumer products and to take steps to reduce exposure to them.
The new law reverses part of a 2015 bill restricting local governments from prohibiting synthetic grass in residential areas. Now, cities and counties in California have the authority to ban artificial grass due to the potential presence of PFAS. PFAS are a group of synthetic chemicals used in various industries around the globe, including manufacturing some types of artificial turf.
PFAS have been dubbed “forever chemicals” because they do not break down in the environment and can accumulate over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse health outcomes in humans, which has led to an increased focus on limiting their use.
A move like this can significantly impact public perception of artificial grass and turf products, as well as the companies that produce them. It brings attention to the issue of PFAS in consumer products and highlights the need for more stringent regulations and transparency from manufacturers.

At Always Green Turf, our comprehensive installation process ensures you receive the highest quality turf and service. Our team begins with a free consultation to understand your vision and needs. We then analyze the area to assess the ground conditions, shade, sunlight exposure, drainage, and other factors that might influence the installation.
The second step involves preparing the ground for installation. This includes removing the existing grass or vegetation and leveling the surface. We then lay a base material and compact it to create a solid foundation for the artificial turf. This phase is crucial as it ensures proper drainage and provides a smooth and stable surface for the turf.
Once the groundwork is complete, we roll out the artificial turf and secure it firmly. We take great care to match the grains of the turf and ensure the seams are invisible. The turf is then infilled with sand or PFAS-free crumb rubber, which provides extra stability and helps the turf blades stand upright for a natural look.
Finally, our team conducts a thorough clean-up of the installation area and provides you with maintenance instructions to ensure the longevity of your new green space. Our artificial turf is low- maintenance and, with proper care, can last 15 to 20 years, providing you with a lush, green lawn all year round.
