Make Your Home Eco-Friendly with Synthetic Grass

Many Orange County residents love artificial grass for its beautiful appearance and low maintenance requirements. Less work for better results is something that any homeowner wants from their home. But, did you know that switching to synthetic grass landscaping also makes your home more eco-friendly? When you choose OC Turf & Putting Greens, you’re benefiting yourself and your local environment.

Save Water

One of the biggest benefits of having artificial grass installed in your Orange County home is that you can significantly reduce your water usage. Since synthetic turf is made from polyethylene material, it doesn’t need to be watered daily in order to maintain its green hue. By drastically reducing this maintenance requirement, you’re also drastically reducing the amount of water that your home uses each year. This saves you hundreds of dollars on your water bill each year and conserves thousands of gallons of water—an especially important factor when living in drought-riddled Southern California.

Reduce Carbon Emissions

Since synthetic grass stays the same height and color all year long without maintenance, you can eliminate the landscaping associated with natural grass. There’s no need for mowing or trimming your lawn, and therefore there’s no need for gasoline-powered lawn tools. By eliminating this aspect of lawn maintenance, you can significantly cut your home’s carbon emissions and reduce your carbon footprint. This makes your home much more environmentally friendly without requiring you to sacrifice any conveniences.

Avoid Toxic Chemicals

Synthetic grass is completely non-toxic, making it safe for kids and pets. Not only that, but its synthetic nature means that it doesn’t require any toxic lawn chemicals such as fertilizer or pesticides in order to remain looking beautiful. This not only makes your backyard safer for little ones, but it also eliminates the chemical runoff associated with these products that contaminates the local water supply. By choosing to install artificial grass, you’re doing your part to protect local wildlife and preserve your local environment.

In an increasingly toxic world, it’s incredibly beneficial to be able to reduce our environmental impact where we can. By installing beautiful synthetic turf in your Orange County backyard, you can enjoy all the benefits that artificial grass has to offer while reducing your carbon footprint and conserving water each year.

3 Commercial Uses for Artificial Turf

Artificial grass is gaining rapid popularity among Orange County homeowners due to its astounding curb appeal and drastically reduced maintenance requirements. But did you know that it’s an ideal landscaping solution for commercial properties as well? Its aesthetic appeal and low maintenance costs make it a smart investment for any business, especially these three industries.

Animal Facilities

Whether you run a dog kennel, veterinary office, or pet store, artificial grass is a top choice for dog-friendly landscaping. The synthetic blades are fade-resistant, so the ammonia in pet urine won’t affect the green color in the same way it kills natural grass. You can have perfectly even, always green grass rather than the brown, dead patches that are unavoidable with natural grass. It’s also extremely resistant to pull force, so your dogs can play, dig, and chew without you having to worry about grass blades strewn about or getting into your dogs’ system. 


Artificial turf’s durability also makes it a great solution for gyms and other athletic facilities. Whether indoor or outdoor, artificial grass is easy to maintain year-round. It can be installed with an eco-friendly foam underlayer that protects athletes’ joints from impact during workouts. It’s also easy to keep clean with an ultra-efficient drainage system and antimicrobial infill. If you want a sports field, training area, or landscape design that offers aesthetic value and functionality, you can’t go wrong with synthetic grass.

Office Buildings

Your office building’s exterior is every client’s first impression of you and your company. In order to impress everyone who visits your office, it’s important that you maintain pristine landscaping year-round. However, this can be difficult—and expensive—in the hot, dry climate of Orange County. By switching to synthetic grass landscaping, you can have even, healthy-looking grass that always remains at the perfect height. And since synthetic turf doesn’t need to be watered to maintain its color, you can drastically reduce your landscaping costs and reallocate those funds toward growing your business.
