Picking the Right Artificial Turf for the Expected Foot Traffic

Choosing a suitable type of artificial grass is crucial for sustaining expected foot traffic. Whether your synthetic grass is installed in your residence or business, knowing foot traffic levels is imperative in increasing the life expectancy of your turf lawn!

At OC Turf & Putting Greens, we provide you with the best artificial turf products on the market. With various products in our inventory, we are able to supply you with beautiful synthetic grass products that are both safe and durable.

Consider these questions when deciding which turf product to go with:

Are there any children in the household?

Having children running around or playing would require artificial turf with a higher face weight. The higher the face weight, the thicker and more durable the turf will be. Check out our Diamond and Everglade lines. These products feature stiffer blade shapes that can withstand any amount of play!

Do I have any pets?

Our Pet Turf is an excellent line that is the perfect choice for your furry friends! It has a shorter pile height, which allows pets to run freely and makes cleaning up after them super easy. We recommend pairing your Pet Turf installation with our Pet System products that include: Durafill, Zeolite Max and Turf Fresh. These will aid in keeping your turf fresh and clean! All of our products feature a perforated backing, allowing liquids can drain through easily. This turf is extremely durable and will last for years to come!

Are you more laid back?

For those of you who just want to gaze at your newly installed synthetic grass lawn, look for products with longer blades and higher pile heights! The taller the blade the plusher your lawn will look. Check out our Sierra & Marquee lines. These products are perfect for leisure time and creating a beautiful and luxurious looking lawn.

Do you enjoy frequent company?

For those who enjoy barbeques and backyard parties, look into our products that are in between having a high face weight for durability but also a medium pile height for a sense of a lavish lawn. We recommend our Emerald and Majestic lines. These products will withstand medium levels of foot traffic, making it a perfect choice for active homeowners!

We hope this blog has helped you think a little bit about your foot traffic levels and what kind of turf products will work best for you. If you have further questions about choosing the right turf, feel free to contact us for your free estimate.

Water Conservation with Artificial Turf

Switching to an artificial grass lawn comes with many benefits. One of the most important aspects of those benefits is the decrease of water consumption. In July 2017, East Orange County increased its water consumption by 7.69% compared to July 2016. About 93% of water consumption in East Orange County is used at the residential level! Irrigation systems are one of the culprits for high levels in water consumption. The average daily gallon usage per resident is about 252 gallons!

Water conservation has been a major issue for many counties in Southern California in the last couple of years. Switching to a synthetic grass lawn will help aid in conservation efforts and can help save billions of gallons of water every year.

When you make the switch to an artificial grass lawn, you get the dream lawn you’ve always wanted without the burden of wasting tons of water in order to keep it green. At OC Turf & Putting Greens, we provide you with the best products that are beautiful, durable, low maintenance, budget friendly, and of course – waterwise. With an array of different products, we are able to find the perfect product for your residence or business without the costly price of a water bill and the hassle of sprinkler timers.

Environmental Benefits of Turf

There are many reasons to switch to artificial grass, and although turf is an excellent lawn alternative that will save you time and money, there are also incredible benefits for the environment.

Being in a drought prone region like California means that it is our responsibility to conserve water by any means necessary. The major drought from years past meant that your friends, family, and neighbors were making the switch to turf, keeping their water bills low and their lawn green. The effort to conserve has helped countless homeowners throughout California get through tough water conservation mandates. You can save up to 265 gallons of water per hour by not using your sprinklers!

Mowing your lawn is a weekend hassle that no one wants to deal with, but did you know lawn mowers are also terrible for the environment? The average lawn mower emits toxic fumes and other particulates into the air, greatly affecting air quality. Running your lawn mower produces as much pollution as driving your car 100-200 miles!

With natural lawns, you also contribute to chemical runoff. About 60% of fertilizer and other similar lawn chemical products is wasted and becomes runoff. This runoff can negatively affect insects, animals, and can be dangerous to humans as well. It is very important to avoid contributing to chemical runoff in order to prevent water contamination. With your turf, you don’t need to use any chemicals and can protect the world around you.

An artificial grass lawn saves you time, money, water, and helps the environment, so it only makes sense to switch! On top of the many benefits that artificial grass has, all of our products here at OC Turf & Putting Greens are non-toxic and lead free, making it a perfect and safe landscape alternative for kids and pets.

Easy Steps to Taking Care of Your Synthetic Grass Lawn

One of the amazing benefits of switching to a synthetic grass lawn is the fact that’s it’s low maintenance. No more mowing, fertilizing, or using irrigation systems to maintain a natural lawn. Maintaining your artificial turf lawn is almost too easy!

At OC Turf & Putting Greens we recommend these simple steps to ensure minimal care to your synthetic grass lawn:

Picking the right product:

Choosing the best face weight and pile height for your landscape plays a role and makes a difference in the level of care. Higher face weights deal with more moderate to heavy foot traffic levels which are more durable than a lighter face weight options. If you’re dealing with kids, pets, etc. you want to make sure your product accommodates for it.

Regular pet clean up:

Artificial grass is perfectly safe for all pets. Following pick up, just quickly rinse down the area with your hose! You can also look into our pet system products to ensure you maintain an odor free lawn.

Clearing debris:

For fallen leaves, flowers, etc. a quick brush up with a plastic rake to groom will do just the trick and clear up the area!

Quick rinse:

A periodic spray down will clear up any dirt, pollen, or dust that may have landed on top of your artificial turf lawn. Say goodbye to your allergies.

If you’re looking to switch from natural grass to a beautiful, green, and lush synthetic grass lawn, look no further than OC Turf & Putting Greens. We have the best quality products on the market and we guarantee you artificial turf will be one of your greatest investments!

Incorporating Synthetic Grass with Your Pets

When installing artificial grass for a pet area, it is crucial to know the right products to use and to make sure your installer provides you with the best possible pet product options. Pet installations require deodorizers to prevent unpleasant smells and infills that prevent the growth of bacteria.

At OC Turf & Putting Greens, we’ll provide you with 3 amazing pet system products that will enhance any pet turf installation with the added benefits of each of them being non-toxic, biodegradable, and eco-friendly.

OC TURF’S 3 PET SYSTEMS

#1: Durafill

Durafill is a non-absorbent, green silicon dioxide granule infill product that stops the growth of bacteria and spores through antimicrobial technology. Durafill is a one time application and does not contain any zinc or heavy metals making it perfectly safe for kids and pets alike!

#2: Zeolite Max

Zeolite Max is a natural turf deodorizer that is installed underneath and on top of the turf to provide a fresh smelling lawn while simultaneously cooling the artificial turf fibers. Zeolite Max absorbs pet urine, traps and neutralizes ammonia-based odors by direct contact. It is best to install this infill on top and within the turf fibers.

#3: Pet Fresh

Pet Fresh is an organic liquid solution that helps fight odors caused by animal urine, keeping your landscape fresh, clean and enjoyable! Pet Fresh can be used as needed and leaves the turf sanitary and fresh-smelling.

OC Turf provides you with the best options when it comes to your furry family members and we know they will love it for years to come!

TigerCool Technology

Summer is officially here and it’s the perfect time to discuss a new synthetic grass technology that’s offered in many of our products: TigerCool.

TigerCool yarns are engineered with heat reflective technology and U.V. inhibitors to drastically lower the temperature of your turf.  In fact, a series of solar panel tests have concluded that our TigerCool products are designed to reduce surface temperatures by 15% and up to 10 degrees!

When the turf blades absorb the infrared light, the cooling technology allows for those rays to be reflected. While absorbed infrared is transformed into heat, TigerCool aids in reflecting the infrared light causing decrease in heat build up.

TigerCool technology is featured on many of the best selling turf products we offer and will make any hot day a pleasant one. If you’re looking to lounge in the frontyard, backyard, or have family and friends over for BBQs, our TigerCool products are the perfect choice this summer!

All of our products are safe for children, pet friendly, and will last for years to come. Don’t let the heat ruin your outdoor activities! Ask us about your TigerCool product options today.

Let’s Talk Blade Shapes

When choosing the right synthetic grass lawn, it is important to understand the factors that contribute to the best experience for your particular situation. One of the most important factors is determining which blade shape works best for you. Aside from face weights and pile heights,  blade shapes also help determine levels of durability the turf can endure. At OC Turf & Putting Greens we feature 5 different and amazing options that will work for any landscaping area.

Our Diamond Series features a 3D “W” fiber that acts as a memory foam. As one of our most popular lines, the Diamond’s curvy “W” shape bounces back to it’s original form almost immediately! For active to heavy foot traffic levels, the 3D “W” fiber is the choice to go for any landscape installation.

The Omega blade shape is featured on our Everlade Series and Pet Turf. This one of a kind shape was meant for high levels of foot traffic and extreme durability. If you have any pets and kids running around, this is the perfect blade shape for your installation.The Majestic and Marquee series feature a Diamond de-lustered blade shape that is capable of constant traffic depending on its face weight. The lighter face weights would work best for a front yard with moderate levels of foot traffic. Lastly, the Sierra series feature two products with a strong “S” blade that acts as a spring that supports intermediate to consistent levels of activity.

Remembering to take these blade shape characteristics into consideration will allow you to enjoy your synthetic grass lawn to the fullest extent!
