The European Synthetic Turf Organisation Quality Guide for Landscaping Turf has been prepared with the principal objective of defining the minimum quality levels ESTO considers appropriate for synthetic turf products used for landscaping applications. By doing so, it allows specifiers, purchasers and end users to compare the quality levels of different products in an objective way by ensuring that a common set of data is available to allow a direct comparison to be made.
Landscaping (synthetic) Turf is turf used to enhance landscapes by providing a durable, all weather alternative to natural turf. The primary reason for using Landscaping Turf is normally visual, comfort is secondary and wear-resistance is often of less importance. Other reasons for installing landscape synthetic turf include saving water or reduced maintenance costs.
