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.

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.

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.
