It’s amazing how much artificial turf has evolved, and Tempo Turf is at the forefront of this revolution, making your green spaces not just more beautiful but also eco-friendlier. Not only do they offer Made in the USA turf, but they offer some 100% recyclable turf options as well.

Near the end of its life, instead of lying in a landfill, recyclable turf can be broken down and turned into new products. Why is this important? Well, think about the amount of turf used in just one sports field—let alone thousands and thousands of fields across the globe. When these fields need to be replaced, the old turf has to go somewhere. And—if it’s not recycled, reused, or repurposed—it just adds to our already overflowing landfills.

By using recyclable turf options, we’re cutting down on waste significantly. Since it’s made from a single type of material instead of being composed of different materials, it makes for more efficient recycling, and also helps reduce waste during the manufacturing process.

New Artificial Turf

Turfs That Are 100% Recyclable

  • Tempo Turf L-73175 Artificial turf used for landscaping that is also highly sustainable. What’s cool about this turf is that it’s 100% recyclable—Yep, that’s right, entirely recyclable!—ensuring everyone walks away happier and greener.
  • Tempo Turf G-360375 – Eco-friendly turf designed for putting greens. Like its sibling above used for landscaping applications, it’s made from 100% Olefin, meaning it’s also 100% recyclable. It’s not just kind to your golf game, but also to the planet.

Using recyclable turf can help municipalities, businesses, and even homeowners align with broader environmental goals, like reducing plastic waste and promoting sustainability.

Artficial Grass for Pets

Pet turf is made to withstand the rough play and frequent use by pets. It’s typically more resilient against wear and tear than standard landscaping turf.

This means it holds up better under the paws and claws of your furry friends—whether they’re running, digging, or just lounging around.

Thanks to its drainage ability and resilient materials, pet turf is easy to clean. Solid waste can be picked up and disposed of as usual, while liquid waste drains away. The surface can be easily rinsed off with a hose, and occasional gentle cleaning with a mild detergent can help maintain its freshness and prevent odors. ReTURF is the sole online retailer for these:

  • Tempo Turf Guilford 2 Pet Turf This one’s crafted with pets in mind, featuring a beautiful mix of field green and lime face yarn with tan and olive green thatch. Not only is it a sight for sore eyes, but its 1″ pile height and 40oz face weight mean your furry friends will love frolicking on it.
  • Tempo Turf Alamance Pet Turf – This one is also specifically made for places where pets hang out—whether that’s in a backyard, a doggy daycare playground, or just a pet-friendly area in a public space. The cool thing about the Alamance turf is its mix of practicality and comfort. It’s got this blend of field green and olive yarns, topped off with tan thatch, which gives it a natural, grassy look that’ll blend seamlessly into most outdoor spaces. The color and texture are designed to mimic real grass as closely as possible, which is great for creating a pleasant and inviting environment.

On the practical side, these turfs are loosely tufted—a fancy way of saying they’re designed to enhance drainage. This is super important for pet turf because good drainage means you can avoid puddles and mud. (Nobody wants to clean muddy paw prints inside the house, right?)

It also helps with cleanliness, since urine and other waste can drain away, reducing pet smells and keeping the turf fresh.

The 1-inch pile height and 65oz face weight strike a balance between softness and durability. This makes the turf comfy for pets to play or lounge on, but it’s still tough enough to handle all that activity without getting worn down quickly.

Plus, the softness is a bonus for playtime—reducing the risk of scrapes and bumps.

Of course, maintenance is easy with this turf. Because of its quality materials and construction, keeping it clean is very simple—a rinse here and there, and you’re good to go. (And with an 8-year warranty, you can bet it’s made to last, ensuring you get a lot of bang for your buck over time.)

Synthetic Turf for Yards, Landscaping, & Playgrounds

For those looking to enhance landscapes or playgrounds, Tempo Turf offers a variety of options:

  • Tempo Turf Calabash 2 and Wanchese both feature unique color schemes that add a splash of character to any outdoor space, with the durability to match.
  • Kinston Sports Turf is perfect for the athletes out there. With its field green color and robust build, it’s built to withstand the rigors of sports, backed by an 8-year warranty.
  • If you’re into golf or bocce, check out the Tempo Turf Topsail. Its 2-tone green yarn with a high curl factor not only looks great but also plays well underfoot, whether you’re putting or rolling a bocce ball.

Lastly, there are other new turf products designed for landscaping and playgrounds that are as durable as they are aesthetically pleasing, including the Tempo Turf Ocracoke, Hatteras, Currituck, and Corolla. Each offers a different shade of natural olives and tans, ensuring there’s a style to match any design preference, all with a comfy 1.50″ pile height and solid 65oz face weight.

Artificial turf is increasingly becoming a go-to option for landscaping and playgrounds—its combination of durability and aesthetic appeal makes it a compelling alternative to natural grass.

Here’s why installing artificial turf can be an especially smart decision for these areas:

  1. Low Maintenance – Artificial turf virtually eliminates the need for the constant upkeep that comes with natural grass. No more mowing, no more watering, no more fertilizing, and no more fighting pesky weeds. This can be a huge time-saver and is also great for water conservation.
  2. Year-Round Greenery – One of the best perks? It looks great all year round. Whether it’s the scorching summer heat or a chilly winter, artificial turf remains lush and green. This aesthetic consistency is a big plus for places like front yards or community parks, where you want to maintain a welcoming and green look no matter what time of year it is.
  3. Safety Features – For front and backyards and playgrounds, safety is ultra-important—and new, modern artificial turfs are designed with this in mind. Many are made with softer, impact-absorbing surfaces that help reduce the risk of injuries from falls. They can also come with non-toxic infills that ensure the area is safe for kids to play on. Plus, the lack of mud and puddles means fewer slips and messy clothes.
  4. Durability – Artificial turf stands up well to heavy foot traffic. This is especially important in playgrounds and public landscapes where natural grass can quickly become worn down and muddy. With artificial turf, you don’t have to worry about bare patches or reseeding areas constantly.
  5. Versatility – The versatility of artificial turf is another big draw. It can be used in shady areas where grass struggles to grow, under play structures where grass would normally get trampled, or even in indoor settings where natural grass isn’t an option. Plus, it comes in various textures and colors, allowing for customization according to the landscape design or play area theme.
  6. Cost Effectiveness – Though the upfront cost might be higher than seeding natural grass, over time, artificial turf can be cost-effective. You save on water bills, lawn care services, and the need for gardening supplies. For municipalities and schools, where budgeting for landscaping and maintenance can be a headache, this can mean substantial savings.
