Maximize the Longevity of Your Artificial Grass

Artificial grass has come a long way since it first hit the market. From advanced yarn designs to new and improved color tones, synthetic grass has taken over most Orange County neighborhood lawns. Artificial turf allows for a picturesque landscape that not only stays green all year long but takes minimal maintenance efforts to remain beautiful. 

One of the main advantages of artificial grass is its incomparable lifespan to natural grass. Follow these tips, and we guarantee your artificial lawn will last you 15+ years!

Proper Installation

First and foremost, you need a proper artificial turf installation. Without a seamless execution and solid foundation, problems will appear within the first couple of years of your installation. From start to finish, your artificial turf installation needs to be done with a qualified and knowledgeable crew. If you’re a DIY kind of person, make sure to take the right steps and precautions before taking on such a demanding project.

Choosing the Right Turf

Choosing the perfect artificial turf option is a crucial step in maintaining your lawn’s lifespan. Whether you enjoy an active lifestyle or prefer leisure time, making sure that you pick the best turf option for your home will increase its longevity. 

For homeowners who have kids and pets running around, going for a higher face weight is perfect for moderate to high traffic levels. Higher face weight equals higher durability. We recommend choosing from our Diamond and Everglade lines. These product series feature strong blade shapes that can endure any amount of play! 

For pet owners, our Pet Turf is the ideal landscape solution. Our pet turf features a shorter pile height for easy maintenance and clean-up – not to mention a killer drainage system. Your pets will never notice the difference! All of our products are non-toxic and lead-free, ensuring the safety of your kids and furry friends.

Quick & Easy Maintenance

With artificial grass, all you need to do it rinse and brush up your lawn every once in a while to keep its pristine look. A simple brush up with a stiff broom will get the fibers back up into place if your turf is starting to bend and look flat. Your turf should also be rinsed periodically, especially if you have dogs or any other animals roaming the area. Pet owners will also benefit from using our pet system products which will keep the artificial grass lawn smelling fresh and clean, even after your pets have utilized the area. Our pet system products include Durafill, Zeolite Max, and Turf Fresh. These top of the line products will help prevent bacteria build-up while providing an environmentally friendly lawn.

At OC Turf & Putting Greens, we take pride in providing each and every client with the lawn of their dreams. All of our products are backed by a 15-year warranty, ensuring that your new artificial grass lawn will last for years to come!

Artificial Grass Provides Commercial Aesthetics
No matter what type of commercial property you own or manage, aesthetics are a big factor. If you’re looking to rent out spaces, the way the building looks is a huge selling point. If you’re trying to make your city look beautiful, your center dividers having evergreen turf can make a huge impact. If you’re a place where people congregate, you want patrons, customers, and friends to be able to enjoy the area without worrying about dirt, mud, bugs, or stains. Artificial turf promises that people enjoy attending your place of business, as well as also want to visit again.

Artificial Grass Helps You Save Money on LandscapingAs we just discussed, you always want to ensure your property is looking as appealing as possible which means you usually would need to invest in landscapers. You need someone to mow the lawn, pull the weeds, fertilize, and trim. While $75 an hour might not seem like much for a landscaper, you could be spending upwards of $10k per year just on maintaining a lawn that is still going to have brown spots regardless. Just that savings alone might be a massive chunk of the investment towards an artificial turf that won’t need nearly as much upkeep to look beautiful. 
Artificial Grass Helps You Save Money on Water BillsEveryone likes to save money when they can and when a commercial property is involved, water bills can be hefty. Sprinklers running bi-weekly for a subpar result is an undeniable waste of your hard earned money. When you invest in an artificial grass lawn, you choose to not only be environmentally friendly and sustainable, but you’re also sustaining the green in your pocket.   
Artificial Grass is Built to WithstandYou might be a little apprehensive about turf if your commercial property is frequented or often walked on.
