Financing Options for Artificial Turf Installations

Home improvement projects are a substantial financial investment. For some, it’s not easy to pay the upfront cost to improve their home. Luckily here at Grizzly Turf, we work with Renovate America to offer clients financing options so they can achieve their landscaping goals. Renovate America is a home improvement financer that works with homeowners and contractors across the United States. When it comes to installing synthetic grass, there are two financing programs that homeowners can choose from, which are HERO and Benji.

HERO Financing

The HERO Financing option through Renovate America is the nation’s largest Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing provider. PACE is a “home improvement financing option that makes it easier to go solar and pay for energy-efficient and water conservation upgrades,” according to their website.

Approval for the HERO program is based on more than just the homeowner’s credit score; it’s also based on home equity, product eligibility, household income, and debt payment history. Another reason why HERO is such a great program is that interest on payments can be tax deductible, if eligible.

HERO has flexible term lengths and will compare its rates to other similar financing options and offer clients the most competitive price possible. Homeowners pay their fixed rates alongside their property taxes, and there is no money down required. The best perk about HERO is that the program gives homeowners the final say, as they won’t need to start paying until they sign off that they are satisfied with the project!  

Benji Financing

Renovate America’s Benji Financing Option offers homeowners competitive fixed rates and requires no money down. Homeowners also won’t start paying until they have signed off that they are happy with the results of the project.

With Benji, homeowners can choose from multiple term length options and can finance anywhere from $2,000 to $50,000, based on credit approval. Applicants can also get approval for financing within minutes depending on credit score. Benji does not look into home equity for eligibility, so homeowners can finance with Benji for almost any home upgrade. Financing with Benji also starts with three easy steps: plan the project, pair with a contractor, and apply for Benji online.  

Conclusion

Many of our Laguna Niguel residents who have applied for HERO or Benji have not had any issue with getting approval. Renovate America is highly client-oriented (just like we are), and want to ensure the clients’ happiness, even after the project is completed. Renovate America only partners and works with the highest-rated contractors, and we are thrilled to be one of them.

Creative Ways Of Using Artificial Turf (Besides The Backyard)

Artificial grass is incredibly versatile and can be used in any environment. Although it is primarily used for sports fields, residential lawns, and commercial landscaping, artificial turf uses go beyond that. Here are a few unique ideas of how you can use artificial grass for your home or office space that isn’t landscaping!

LIVEN UP YOUR OFFICE SPACE

You can liven up your office space without live plants! You won’t even need somebody with a green thumb to make sure the artificial grass is healthy and green. Whether you have a unique synthetic turf flooring or artificial grass wall, it is guaranteed to make a lasting first impression and also create a relaxing atmosphere. You can add this fresh green addition to the lobby, conference room, or wherever else you want to turn mundane into unique! You could even fool your employees, clients, and guests to thinking you’ve been growing grass indoors because artificial turf looks and feels just like real grass!

INDOOR HOME DECORATION

Artificial grass can also liven up your home indoors. Imagine walking into a home, and the first room you see has a beautiful accent floor of synthetic turf! Or imagine transforming the extra bedroom into a customized indoor putting green course that the whole family can enjoy. On a smaller scale, you can use artificial grass to cover objects around the house (inside and out). Turn that beat up storage trunk into a grass box or give your furniture a little updo with some greens!

OUTDOOR HOME DECORATION

If you have outdoor patio furniture, you can do a quick DIY project with artificial grass. The softness of synthetic turf can make wooden furniture a little more comfortable to sit on while you and your friends hang out in the warm Orange County sun. Another idea you can do is make artificial grass placemats for the upcoming Superbowl BBQ!

GYM FLOORING

Take your workouts to the next level with artificial grass! Believe it or not, artificial grass has resilience and durability that allows you to train and exercise on a non-abrasive and low-impact surface. Whether you are just stretching, doing some strength training, or sweating up a storm, artificial grass is quick to dry and is guaranteed to handle your roughest workout activities.

So when you get that artificial grass installation for your Laguna Niguel home, use some of the leftover scrap pieces of synthetic turf to transform the rest of your home too! Looking for an artificial lawn installation (and maybe some scrap pieces too)? Give Grizzly Turf a call (866) 237-8873, and we’d love to help you out however we can.

Is Artificial Grass Safe for Playgrounds?

When it comes to your kids playing on the playground, you have every reason to be concerned about the area’s cleanliness and safety. They could be getting mud or grass stains all over their clothes and the house, or slip and fall from the slick grass, resulting in an injury. There is good news for playgrounds though: artificial turf is the perfect playscape alternative that keeps your kids clean and safe in Laguna Niguel.  

Artificial Grass is Clean and Hygienic

Unlike other alternatives like; bark chips, sand or natural grass, artificial turf is non-toxic, allergen-free, and certified lead-free. It is incredibly durable and is made to withstand the roughest of play dates on the playground. With the implemented drainage system, synthetic grass dries quickly and will not flood after a rainfall. That means you won’t have to worry about your kids running around in the mud and dragging their muddy footprints into your home or car! Since the artificial grass has no dirt underneath, this consequently means the space will be a bug and insect-free environment. The playground system also features an artificial grass infill, which is coated in silicone and has antimicrobial properties to ensure a clean and hygienic outdoor play area for children.

Artificial Grass is Safe

Kids are pretty clumsy and accidentally hurt themselves a lot. We understand that here at Grizzly Turf, so we make sure our padding is certified by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA). IPEMA works to promote safety and in-depth information about issues affecting playground equipment. Products must go through rigorous testing to ensure its safety and ability to reduce injury-risks. This means our artificial turf installations for playground systems provide an eco-friendly, soft foam padding to protect children against impact and injuries.

As a family company, we know that safety is an important factor. That’s why we strive to ensure the safety of all of our products for our clients’ and their whole family. Give us a call to learn more about how you can improve your Laguna Niguel backyard playground with artificial grass at 866-237-8873.

Artificial Grass & Fast Drainage

In Southern California, we know the chance of rain is always a slim one. However, on occasions where the clouds do come out to play, many homeowners question how effective their artificial grass installation is going to be at draining the water. Here at Grizzly Turf, we are always proud to say that we provide our customers with turf products that are not only designed to ensure zero flooding and fast drainage, but also protects against other liquids your artificial grass lawn might encounter.

DRAINAGE CAPABILITIES

It might be hard to believe, but our artificial grass products drain more water than a natural grass lawn. When it rains, water percolates through ½ centimeter holes in the backing and flows through the base layer, avoiding any overflowing. The backing of our turf drains at a rate of 30 inches of water per hour per square yard. You’ll have no issues with a flooded backyard in the off chance of a rogue Anaheim rainstorm.  

DRAINAGE BENEFITS  

Because the water is leaving just as fast as it’s dropping in, you prevent spore and bacteria growth, keeping your landscape safe for pets and kids. You also avoid muddy holes, puddles, and standing water which attracts a wide variety of bugs to your backyard. When it comes to your pets doing their business, the same benefits of drainage capabilities with rainfall apply as well. Pet urine drains through without leaving dead, brown spots on your perfect lawn. The other doggy business can be picked up and rinsed away quickly with no issues.   

YOU HELP KEEP OUR WATER CLEAN

Many homeowners don’t think about the adverse effects of rain when it comes to a natural lawn. If you’re using fertilizers, bug sprays, and other chemical substances to keep natural grass alive, keep in mind where those things go when it rains. All of those chemicals run off and can end up in places we don’t want them to be, including the ocean. When you install artificial grass, you’re keeping all the chemicals off the lawn and helping prevent water pollution every single day.

When it comes down to it, Grizzly Turf believes in making artificial turf the best option for any home or business. We work hard to give our customers only the best turf products on the market, so you’re never concerned about flooding, bugs, pet urine, mud, or water pollution. Superior drainage will keep your home looking green, beautiful, and efficient all year long. If you’re interested in taking advantage of all these benefits, make sure to give our team a call. We would love to assist you in making the switch.

Artificial Grass for Commercial Installations

In Southern California, many homeowners make the switch to artificial grass for a variety of reasons, including water conservation and beautification. That being said, the benefits of an artificial grass lawn covers more than just your home. It’s an eco-friendly, water-wise, and practical option for commercial properties as well. With commercial turf landscape installations, you can entice customers with an evergreen appearance all while saving money and time on maintenance.

If you’re a property manager or owner, landscape maintenance can be a huge struggle. If you are leasing out apartments or offices, it’s important that your potential renters have a positive impression of the property as soon as they arrive. If you own a property dedicated to food or bringing patrons together in an outdoor environment, such as the Anaheim Packing House, you want the landscape to be welcoming. Artificial grass allows you to achieve that. It makes your business look green and lively. Patrons can enjoy the outdoors without the worry of grass stains, mud, or allergic reactions. Potential renters can feel proud of bringing their friends around to their apartment because the building looks fresh and well maintained.

Artificial grass often gets a bad rep because people think it’s unrealistic and unsustainable under foot traffic. With new technology in the turf industry, our commercial artificial grass installations maintain a realistic appearance without sacrificing durability and can withstand the heaviest foot traffic. Moreover, synthetic grass is low-maintenance. You won’t need to hire a landscaper to keep your artificial grass lawn mowed and green. An artificial grass lawn makes it simple to elevate a storefront or outdoor business landscape with just an occasional rinse and brush. The installation ultimately pays for itself in reduced water and landscaping bills, giving you an unbeatable return on your investment.

If you’re looking for a beautiful way to lower your property costs while raising its value, an artificial grass lawn is the way to go. At Grizzly Turf, we offer commercial turf options for business applications, schools, industrial properties, and municipal properties. Artificial grass is 100% pet and kid-friendly, sturdy, and cost-effective so you can invest in something that is going to pay for itself. When you’re ready to commit to an evergreen artificial lawn, make sure to give Grizzly Turf a call at (866) 237-8837!

5 Tips for Better Outdoor Water Conservation

As summer comes to an end, there are no more excuses for using too much water. Although California is no longer in a drought, it’s still best to be environmentally conscious while saving some money on your water bill.  Here are 5 ways you can optimize your water consumption in your home in the yard or garden.

#1: Adjust the Sprinkler System

Think about how much water is wasted when the majority of sprinkler water is on the sidewalk instead of your lawn! You can fix this by adjusting the sprinkler heads away from concrete and towards the area where you need it. You can also reduce the spray distance to prevent overlapping sprinkler areas as well as overwatering your lawn and plants.

#2: Water in the Morning or Evening

Optimum sprinkler timing allows more water to be used for the lawn and plants, as opposed to evaporating quickly in the hot air. Whether you use a sprinkler system or water your plants with a hose, the prime time for watering is in the early morning or late evening when the sun is low. You can maximize spray and save water so it’s a win-win.

#3: Sweep Hardscapes

Using water on your hardscapes is typically unnecessary, but many residents like to hose down their pavement to clean it. Rather than hosing off your patios, driveways, and other hardscapes sweep off the dirt with a broom. No water needed.

#4: Use a Pool Cover

Pools can lose an inch or more every week due to evaporation. It all depends on temperature, humidity, and winds. Not only will a pool cover keep it clean from falling leaves and debris, it will prevent water from leaving the pool in the first place. You’ll save yourself a significant amount of water from eliminating the need to refill the pool back to its recommended height.

#5: Install Artificial Turf, Hardscapes, or Drought-Tolerant Plants

Doing this one eliminates the need to do tips #1 and #2! A lawn that doesn’t require sprinklers or watering can save you a noticeable amount of both water AND money! Many Californians are investing in synthetic grass installations because their yard can have the look and feel of natural grass without the maintenance or water requirements. Some cities in California also offer rebates for artificial turf installations.

Homeowners also pair their artificial lawn with California-native and drought-tolerant plants. Cactus plants and other desertscape foliage is beneficial to saving water in any yard. Hardscapes also don’t require water and act as a great lawn alternative. For an aesthetically balanced property, incorporate synthetic turf with a few native plants and hardscape. You’ll have all the benefits of a water-wise environment while still being picturesque from the sidewalk.

Whatever you choose to conserve water on your property, know that you’re helping the environment and your wallet simultaneously. Water conservation is important to us here at Grizzly Turf. That’s why we offer high-quality artificial grass installations with top-notch customer service for residential and commercial properties.
