The Innovation story of DuraGrass™

We know homeowners everywhere share the problem of unsightly bare spots in their yards that they cannot seem to fix. As homeowners ourselves, we know how frustrating it is to put time and effort into your lawn just to have that bare spot crop up again and again. We believe we can take a cue from nature to help homeowners fix their bare spots for good. 

Our parent company, Grassworx LLC, has been manufacturing artificial turf for over 50 years in many industries and applications. You’ve probably used one of our products at some point. We are local to the St. Louis area and we are dedicated to our community. 

Our experience in the erosion control space proved that hybrid turfs were viable to protect vegetation and foster growth. We reformulated our existing hybrid turf for homeowners and added a layer of seeds to make a one-step fix for ugly bare spots. As an engineer-run company, we can’t help ourselves from seeking solutions to everyday problems like this.

The mix does change with each lot of seeds, so please look on the Pre-Seeded DuraGrass packaging for the exact seed mixture for that particular product.

The beauty of the design of DuraGrass is that you don’t remove it. You keep it installed in your lawn to continue to protect the new grass that you have grown. You can seed directly through DuraGrass season after season.

The plastic of DuraGrass is recyclable, if you do ever decide to remove it, many years down the road.

Online you can find it at lowes.com.

If you are a retailer and would like information on selling DuraGrass, please use our contact us form.

DuraGrass can be installed in any season. Because of the green turf blades, it will immediately patch any area regardless of season, and keep that area looking green all year long.

We recommend installation alignied with your climate’s grass-growing best practices.

For our Pre-Seeded product there is a mix of fescue, rye and bluegrass that is pre-mixed in the attached seed blanket.

You may overseed as you see fit.
