Chill Out on Artificial Grass with TigerCool

Any Laguna Niguel resident knows how uncomfortably hot Southern California summers can be. When July hits and the temperature reaches the 80s or 90s, there’s nothing you want to do more than find a way to cool down. While it’s always the best time to get outside and enjoy the summer sun, those summer activities also come with a lot of sweat, humidity, and scalding surfaces. With OC Turf & Putting Greens’ TigerCool artificial turf products, you can beat the heat and create a backyard oasis that provides comfortable fun for the whole family.

Here at OC Turf, we only offer advanced, industry-leading synthetic turf products that elevate every install. Several of our best selling artificial grass products include first-of-its-kind TigerCool technology, which controls and reduces the temperature of artificial grass surfaces by up to 15 percent. In early variations of poorly-made artificial grass, surface temperatures could often reach as much as 175 degrees. Not only is this uncomfortable for you, but it’s a health and safety hazard for your kids and pets. However, after years of extensive research and development, TigerTurf and Tencate have created an innovative temperature-control technology that is revolutionizing the artificial grass industry. Tencate is a worldwide innovator of space-age yarns, best known for their work with NASA and Boeing. Utilizing Tencate’s advanced yarn technology, TigerTurf was able to engineer an artificial turf product that includes UV inhibitors and heat-reflective color pigments that effectively reduce synthetic turf surface temperatures by as much as 10 degrees.

Surfaces become extremely hot in the sunlight because of the absorption of infrared sunlight into the surface material. Absorbed infrared light is transformed into heat, and conventional dark colors absorb light at the highest rates. The dark green and brown colors used in artificial turf products absorb large amounts of light, which causes a high heat buildup and results in high surface temperatures. However, heat-reflective color pigments like those used in TigerCool technology reflect the light rather than absorb it, which causes a lower heat buildup and lower surface temperatures as a result. This makes it safer and more comfortable for your family during the warm, sunny months in Laguna Niguel.

TigerCool technology is currently incorporated into two of our bestselling product lines. Both the Diamond series and Marquee series include TigerCool technology, and both lines boast a range of artificial grass products that will suit any project. From light to heavy foot traffic, we can choose an artificial turf product that will fulfill all of your space’s needs. Pile heights in these two lines range from 1.75 inches to 1.875 inches, and face weights vary from 60 ounces to 75 ounces. All of our artificial grass products are non-toxic, lead-free, and completely safe for kids and pets.

Why Artificial Turf is Perfect for Your Summer Fun

Summertime in Laguna Niguel means days on end of running, playing, swimming, and generally enjoying the long days and great weather. There’s no time of year where your backyard gets more use than the summer, between outdoor playtime and evening barbecues. Make the most of this summer by switching to artificial grass for your Laguna Niguel home. Artificial grass is perfect for summer fun due to its durability, versatility, and drainage capabilities. Here’s why you should consider artificial grass this summer.

Artificial Grass is Great for Water Activities

When summer begins, families all over Laguna Niguel break out their sprinklers, Slip ‘N Slides, water guns, and all kinds of water activities to cool off. With natural grass, these water games can flood the surface of the grass, causing damp and matted surfaces, broken grass blades, and even the growth of mold or mildew. Artificial grass, however, features a highly efficient drainage system that can drain water at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square foot. This means you’ll never have to worry about getting muddy or covered in grass blades when you’re trying to enjoy some water-themed games to cool off. Your lawn will feel completely dry within the hour, and the efficient drainage combined with antimicrobial infill will prevent mold and other contaminants from growing on the surface of the synthetic turf. Keep your lawn and your family safe and dry this summer with artificial grass.

Hours of Play Time with Artificial Turf

Artificial turf’s design versatility makes it perfect for summer activities. Whether you want a playground for the kids, a custom putting green, an in-ground trampoline, or a place to play sports, artificial grass is the perfect landscaping solution. Our artificial grass products are highly durable, making them ideal for areas that will receive a lot of use and high foot traffic. Our play area grass is also IPEMA-certified and installed with a foam underlayer to protect kids from impact falls up to 10 feet high. We can design custom putting greens that fit any shape, size, and terrain you have to work with. Artificial grass is the perfect choice for backyard fun of all types, with durability and versatility that will allow it to suit any project.

Synthetic Turf is a Poolside Paradise

Artificial grass is becoming an increasingly popular pool deck option among Laguna Niguel homeowners due to its many benefits which afford residents peace of mind. Synthetic turf’s low-maintenance nature allows homeowners to eliminate landscaping, saving time and expenses. No longer being required to landscape the grass also means that you won’t have grass blades, gasoline-powered tools, or toxic fertilizer chemicals in and around your pool. This keeps your pool water safer for you and your family. The durability of artificial grass also means that it’s able to withstand a high amount of foot traffic and resist breakage, so the blades won’t break off and be tracked into the pool like with natural grass. It will also remain evergreen at any time of year, no matter how much your family walks or runs over the surface, so you won’t experience any brown, dead patches. The impressive drain rate of 30 inches per hour per square yard also means that you never have to worry about mud, slipping, or pooling on the surface of the artificial grass. It will feel dry within the hour, keeping your family safe and comfortable.
