TigerCool Artificial Turf Products

It’s getting warmer every day in Laguna Niguel, and soon the blistering summer heat will be out in full force. When the weather heats up, you want your backyard to provide an oasis where you can cool off and make the most of the sunshine. Whether it’s you, your kids, or your pets, no one wants to run around on grass that burns their feet. With our range of products featuring innovative TigerCool technology, you won’t ever have to worry about heat ruining your outdoor activities again.

Our TigerTurf products feature the latest innovations available for artificial turf, including first-of-its-kind TigerCool temperature-control technology. In early generations of poorly-produced artificial turf, the surface temperature of the synthetic grass could often exceed 175 degrees. Not only is this uncomfortable for you, but it’s unsafe for your children and pets.  

Through years of research and development, TigerTurf and Tencate have revolutionized the artificial turf industry. Tencate is a worldwide innovator of space-age yarns for companies such as NASA and Boeing. Utilizing their unique and advanced yarns, TigerTurf engineered a product with heat reflective color pigments and UV inhibitors that reduce surface temperatures by up to 15 percent!  

Outdoors, absorbed infrared sunlight is transformed into heat. Conventional dark colors, like those in standard artificial turf, absorb infrared light, causing high heat buildup and raising surface temperatures. With heat-reflective dark colors, like those used in our TigerCool turf products, infrared light is reflected instead of absorbed, causing a decrease in heat buildup. In a series of solar panel tests, it was indicated that TigerCool technology successfully reduces turf temperatures by 15 percent and up to 10 degrees, making it safer and more comfortable for you and your family to enjoy your artificial grass in Laguna Niguel.

TigerCool is used throughout our Diamond series and Marquee series – two of our best-selling lines. Both offer products for a range of needs, covering light to heavy foot traffic. Pile heights range from 1.75 inches to 1.875 inches, and face weights vary from 60 ounces to 75 ounces. All of our products are safe for children and pet-friendly so that you can be worry-free all year long.

If you want to get summer-ready with TigerCool artificial grass in your Laguna Niguel home, we at Grizzly Turf would be happy to assist you with all of your design and installation needs.

Choosing the Right Artificial Grass for Your Foot Traffic

Many homes are now converting to artificial grass in Laguna Niguel due to its durability and natural appearance. Although artificial turf was once unsightly and unnatural in appearance, advancements in technology in recent years have made it possible for our synthetic turf products to be completely natural looking and even softer than real grass. However, levels of durability between turf products can vary, so it’s essential that you choose the right product for your expected level of foot traffic when installing artificial grass in your Laguna Niguel residence.

There are several components that determine a turf’s durability:

Artificial Grass Backing

In our turf grass products, synthetic blades are tucked into a polyurethane backing that keeps the fibers intact. The most durable backings can resist thousands of pounds of resistance per square inch, making them optimal for high-traffic areas such as sports fields. There are two layers to the backing: the primary backing, where the blades are looped through, and the coating where the tuft bind is glued in. Tuft bind can withstand about ten pounds of force, on average, before monofilament will be removed from the backing. This is much more substantial and resistant than natural grass, which can be pulled out extremely easily, resulting in unattractive patches on your lawn.  

Synthetic Grass Face Weight

Face weight is another factor in a turf product’s durability. Face weight is the weight of the fibers within the product. The heavier the face weight is, the stronger and more hardwearing it is. Our lightest option, Everglade Fescue Light, has a face weight of approximately 50 ounces, whereas our most heavy-duty option, Tacoma, comes in at about 90 ounces. The former is recommended for light to moderate traffic, whereas the latter is recommended for heavy traffic. If the product chosen has too light of a face weight, the lifespan of your artificial turf will be decreased, and the quality of your lawn’s appearance is lessened.

Artificial Grass Pile Height

Pile height is the length of the blades of grass used in the turf. The shorter the pile height is, the better it is for use in more durable turf products. Longer blades of grass provide a more luxurious look, but they can become matted and unsightly if overused. If your lawn is for aesthetic purposes and very light foot traffic, a long and lush blade height might be better suited to your home. However, if you have children or will be using the area for sports, a shorter pile height will allow you to get the most out of your artificial grass and extend its lifespan.

Synthetic Turf Pet Systems & Putting Greens

If your grass needs to withstand specific activities such as dogs running or golf games, choose one of our products specially made for these specific scenarios. We install pet-friendly grass as well as custom putting greens to make your home as practical as it is beautiful. Our pet products come with durable packing to prevent digging, anti-microbial infill for odor prevention, and efficient drainage systems that make waste clean up easier than ever. If you want to work on your golf game at home or in the office, we can install custom putting greens designed for your specific style of play. At Grizzly Turf, we carry options for any personalized need.

Not all turf is created equal. When considering artificial turf installation for your Laguna Niguel home or business, ensure that you’re choosing a product that is best suited to your expected level of foot traffic. We carry dozens of synthetic grass styles and can find one that best suits you and your needs. Speak to one of Grizzly Turf’s expert designers or installers today for more information and to get advice on which artificial turf product would be best for you.

Artificial Grass and How to Prevent Allergies

Spring in San Clemente means fun and sun as we transition to summer, but it also means pollen allergies. With the warmer weather comes elevated pollen counts and a resulting increase in hay fever symptoms. Approximately one in six Americans suffer from grass allergies, also called hay fever, which can result in symptoms such as sneezing, itchy eyes, stuffy nose, hives, trouble breathing, and more. One way to keep these allergies under control is by replacing the grass in your lawn with synthetic turf, which is hypoallergenic.

Synthetic grass fibers are made from hypoallergenic materials that are safe for kids and pets, so pollen allergies are reduced. Artificial grass also doesn’t hold onto pollen particles like natural grass does, which reduces your exposure to pollen and thereby reduces allergies and resulting symptoms. Eliminating real grass around your home’s points of entry—such as windows, doors, and vents—and replacing it with artificial turf will reduce the amount of pollen that enters your home and triggers allergies.

Mowing your lawn can also expose you to large amounts of pollen and exacerbate allergies. The act of mowing and the movement of the grass causes pollen to fly into the air around your home, worsening allergy symptoms. Artificial turf does not require mowing and will keep allergy attacks at bay by reducing the amount of pollen in the air. Turf grass has a short, uniform pile height that stays short and maintained. There’s no excess growth, which would trap dust and debris like in natural grass that causes allergies.

Artificial turf’s lack of maintenance also makes it an excellent choice for the 50 million Americans suffering from allergies. There is no need to water artificial grass, and it stays looking full and healthy all year long. However, synthetic grass’s advanced drainage system means that the turf can be easily hosed down to reduce pollen count even further, with no concern for mud, flooding, or bacteria growth. The low-maintenance nature of synthetic turf also allows you to eliminate any pesticides, fertilizer, or other products that can cause irritation to you, your family, and your pets.

Although there are short-term solutions to hay fever, such as taking antihistamines, artificial grass is a great long-term solution that allows you and your family to enjoy your spring and summer allergy-free. Grizzly Turf’s hypoallergenic synthetic turf reduces pollen count around your San Clemente home and keeps your symptoms under control, so you’re free to play in the sun. If you’re ready to make the most of the warm season now, give us a call at (866) 237-8873 to get started with a free estimate. We’d love to hear from you!

 

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.

Grizzly Turf offers high-quality synthetic grass installation with superior customer service, and we are proud to install artificial grass in Laguna Niguel and the surrounding Orange County Areas.

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!

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.
