For years, landscapers and homeowners have been searching for ways to save water and energy while maintaining a beautiful, lush outdoor space. With advances in technology and a greater desire for environmental responsibility, synthetic grass has become a leading option for sustainable, low-maintenance landscaping.
Originally created in the 1960s, first-generation turf was notorious for having a sharp and plastic-like finish that made it an unappealing option for many. However, recent innovations pioneered by Synthetic Grass Warehouse have revolutionized the global turf industry and transformed artificial turf into a highly desired landscaping alternative for Bay Area homes and businesses. Here are just a few of the key ways in which synthetic grass has not just improved but also become an industry leader.
More Environmentally Friendly
One of the biggest reasons that drive property owners to make the switch to synthetic grass landscaping is to reduce their environmental impact. Due to the lower maintenance requirements, artificial turf has become the preferred water-wise landscaping solution in the Bay Area and across the country.
Unlike natural grass, artificial grass does not require mowing, edging, fertilizing, and other maintenance that natural grass requires. This allows you to eliminate the use of toxic chemicals and gasoline-powered tools, reducing harm to the local environment. Synthetic turf also doesn’t require watering to stay green, enabling you to conserve thousands of gallons of water (and hundreds of dollars) each year.
Cooler to the Touch
When exposed to direct sunlight, natural grass — as well as turf grass of the 20th century — can get hot to the touch. This can be a safety hazard for the smallest members of your family as well as an unpleasant experience for those trying to enjoy the outdoor space. Modern wholesale turf from SGW, however, remains cooler to the touch and more comfortable for everyone.
SGW TigerCool products are manufactured with innovative temperature-control technology that keeps surface temperatures up to 15 percent cooler than other synthetic grass products. Heat-reflective color pigments and advanced UV inhibitors reflect infrared light rather than absorb it, which results in surface temperatures up to 10 degrees cooler. Paired with other temperature-control measures such as silica infill and strategic blade shapes, synthetic grass remains much more enjoyable year-round.
Whereas natural grass will quickly turn brown with heavy foot traffic or pet waste, Synthetic Grass Warehouse turf is built to be extremely durable and resilient. There are unique synthetic turf products suitable for light, medium, or heavy foot traffic, as well as specialized pet turf and playground systems created specifically for rough play.
Modern synthetic grass also stands tall against the elements, remaining lush and evergreen through droughts, snowstorms, or anything in between. Our products endure rigorous testing for environmental factors such as UV radiation, extreme temperatures, and moisture effects. No matter what weather your turf goes up against, it will last you for years to come. We even offer a 10-year manufacturer warranty to protect against premature deterioration from defective materials.
One of first-generation synthetic turf’s major flaws was its appearance. Although it provided an evergreen look to your lawn, it often looked like plastic rather than natural grass, making its installation apparent.
By utilizing Tencate’s industry-leading, space-age yarns, SGW has been able to engineer an advanced artificial grass product that appears just like natural grass. Dual blade tones paired with tan or green thatch capture the dynamic color tones in real grass, creating an evergreen lawn your neighbors will envy year-round.
Soft & Lush Underfoot
With the use of these innovative yarns, synthetic grass became not only more realistic in appearance, but also more realistic in texture. Modern synthetic grass is soft and lush underfoot, doing away with the sharp, poking bristles of plastic-looking ‘80s turf grass.
You can feel safe allowing your kids and pets to play on SGW turf without worrying about scrapes or injuries. Barefoot summers on your backyard turf are soft and comfortable, even during the height of the heat, thanks to SGW’s latest turf innovations.
