Why is it only made from 80% recyclable products?

Our most environmentally responsible artificial grass is made from recyclable plastic waste. The making of Trulawn Harmony uses plastic waste from the agricultural industry by recycling the plastic used to protect and store foods and other objects into manufacturing the grass.


Only 20% of the artificial grass is made from unrecycled plastic to ensure your grass is protected against UV fading and provides the high durability needed for a longer lifespan.

How is it 100% recyclable?

Trulawn Harmony is made from the same group of plastic polymers throughout. With no separation needed, this means 100% of it could be recycled.


The only non-recyclable elements are parts of the grass that are not made of plastic. This would be the small strip where two pieces are joined together with adhesive tape.

Suitable for Schools

At Trulawn, we want children to get active and enjoy being outside. A concrete surface may be practical but hardly engaging, and wet weather can limit play areas due to muddy fields. We want children to get the most out of their break times, and Trulawn Harmony as our most eco-friendly grass is perfect for inviting a soft play space and brightening up dull, concrete areas to improve their creativity.

We understand that many schools action an Eco-policy to help educate the children about the environmental impacts. As a cost-effective and sustainable alternative to concrete or worn away, muddy grass, it is no wonder why more schools are upgrading to our artificial grass alternatives.

Latex Free Backing

Latex-free grass is perfect for homeowners with large or many animals using the space as part of their daily routine. Thanks to the polypropylene dispersion technology used in making the backing, the liquids pass through the grass more easily whilst also maintaining the integrity and stability of the grass. The durability of our most eco-friendly artificial grass won’t be affected, so you and your pets can enjoy a lawn perfect for those active paws for years to come!

Nearly all artificial grass is manufactured with a latex backing, used to keep stitching in place, maintain a high durability and ensure a long lifespan.


Though uncommon, a latex backing is more likely to retain moisture and by extension odours compred to a latex-free backing.

What Do Recycled Plastics Become?

When plastics are taken to the recycling processor, many items can be made.

In some places where grass is recycled, the grass is intensively washed to remove and chemicals and contaminants and then melted into pellets. Once in their pellet form they can be made into items including artificial wood products like benches and even draining pipes.
Check with a recycling centre before bringing any plastic product, as not all facilities offer the same service.

Recycling Your Installation Sub-base

We install our lawns to make sure that they are stable and for you to enjoy a long-lasting garden, but that doesn’t mean they have to be a permanent fixture. A typical domestic lawn requires a 6-8cm sub-base, but this can vary slightly depending on each project. After many years of love, your artificial lawn sub-base can be removed and disposed of responsibly.

Recyclable plastics

  • Stabilisation membrane
  • Edging
  • Weed membrane

These elements are made of one plastic rather than a mixture, this means they are more easily recycled. Local recycling centres differ on what they will and will not accept, so best to check if this will be accepted at the one closest to you.

Recyclable materials

If you are using a skip company to remove the lawn, ask them whether their waste is taken to a pit where it can be recycled. Some companies differ.
