Summer Water Conservation with Artificial Turf

As of March 2019, California has officially been declared free of drought for the first time since 2011. However, climatologists are urging California residents to adopt water conservation as a way of life in order to help the environment and reduce the severity of droughts that will inevitably occur again in the near future. In order to do their part in helping the environment, many Laguna Niguel residents are switching to artificial grass for its numerous water conservation and environmental benefits. 

According to the EPA, the average American household uses more than 300 gallons of water every day on average. However, during the summer this can increase to almost 1,000 gallons each day, primarily due to an increase in outdoor water use. Of this figure, almost half can go to outdoor water use in the summer, which means over 500 gallons of water each day is being used to water your lawn alone.

Synthetic turf is made of a polyethylene material that remains green all year long and doesn’t need to be watered to maintain its appearance. Because of this, all daily watering and irrigation systems can be eliminated, significantly reducing your water use. By replacing your natural grass lawn with synthetic turf, you can save up to 500 gallons of water every single day throughout the summer – saving you hundreds of dollars on your water bill in turn. With artificial grass, your only outdoor water usage will be the occasional hose down to clear away dust, spills, or pet waste. This is a significant reduction in water that will still allow you to conserve tens of thousands of gallons of water each year.

With the potential to save almost 50,000 of gallons of water annually, each household that switches to artificial grass is a significant contributor to a significant environmental change. Synthetic grass installations around the world collectively conserve more than 9 billion gallons of water every day. To start helping the environment and become a part of the movement, consider replacing your grass with synthetic turf landscaping solutions.

Artificial Grass for Your Pool Deck

When the summer heat descends on Laguna Niguel, residents flock to their swimming pools to cool off and enjoy some family fun. Since swimming pools are such a populated part of the house, many homeowners pay special attention to their pool finishes and landscaping to make sure that it’s as safe, practical, and fun as possible. Artificial grass for Laguna Niguel homeowners is becoming an increasingly popular pool deck option over concrete, stone decking, or even real grass due to its many benefits. Here are just some of the reasons that artificial grass is an ideal choice for your pool deck.

Low Maintenance With Turf Grass

Artificial grass is a low-maintenance landscaping solution in general, but its convenience is especially beneficial for poolside landscaping. Synthetic turf stays green and perfectly-trimmed all year, so there’s no need to water, mow, edge, or otherwise regularly maintain your lawn. This saves you time and money on landscaping, whether you hire a landscaper or do it yourself. It also means that you won’t have cut grass, gasoline-powered tools, or fertilizer chemicals around your pool. This will keep your pool water safer and cleaner for your family and lessen the impact on your pool filter.

Durable Artificial Turf

Artificial grass products are much more durable than real grass. They’re engineered to withstand a high amount of foot traffic and resist breakage, so the blades won’t break off and get tracked into the pool like with real grass. Additionally, synthetic turf always looks lush, healthy, and evenly colored, so you won’t have any unsightly brown patches like those that occur in real grass lawns due to excessive walking or running.

Easy Drainage With Synthetic Grass

Splashing and playing can introduce a lot of water to the area around your pool. Unlike real grass, artificial grass can handle excessive water easily thanks to its ultra-efficient drainage systems. Our turf products can drain at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square foot, which means that there will be no mud, and no water will pool on the surface of the grass. Not only will the grass feel completely dry within the hour, but the efficient drainage system also prevents mold and other contaminants from growing on the surface of the turf. It’s a more sanitary and convenient option than real grass, which has a dramatically lower drainage capability.

Turf Grass is Safe

Smooth surfaces such as concrete, stone, and brick can become slick when wet, which creates a safety hazard for those walking or running alongside the pool. Make sure your family is safe while entering or exiting the pool by installing artificial grass. The traction provided by synthetic grass makes it much safer for kids walking or running on the pool’s edge. Give yourself peace of mind by installing artificial grass for your pool deck. 

Comfortable Artificial Turf Landscaping

Concrete or brick surfaces can become extremely hot during the summer, so stepping out of the pool can be an uncomfortable experience. Stop burning the soles of your feet by installing artificial grass pool decking. Synthetic grass will allow you to be barefoot comfortably, without the risk of burning or needing to wear flip-flops poolside. Several of our product lines also feature TigerCool, an innovative UV-inhibiting technology built into the turf, which allows it to stay up to 15% cooler than other synthetic turf products.
