3 Ways to Make Summer More Fun with Artificial Turf

When Sacramento starts heating up, there’s nothing more enjoyable than playing outdoors with your family in the sunshine. Keeping your kids entertained all summer with diverse and exciting outdoor activities is no small feat, but luckily artificial grass makes the job easier than ever. Thanks to synthetic turf’s durability and functionality, there’s a whole host of ways that you can make summer more fun for your family. Here are a few of our favorite summer pastimes.

1. Play a round of golf

Artificial grass putting greens are a relaxing pastime that allow you to enjoy the sunshine and some leisurely activity from the comfort of your own backyard. Undergo some putting practice in your free time or play a round of mini golf with friends and family. The best part of synthetic grass putting greens is that they’re entirely customizable to your needs, so no yard is too big, small, or awkwardly shaped for an installation. Our putting green turf options simulate the look and feel of real bentgrass, so you can practice for the PGA all summer long.

2. Create a slip ‘n’ slide

There’s no need to fear water games when you have a synthetic grass lawn from SGW. Our turf products are installed with an ultra-efficient drainage system that drains at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard. When your kids want to pull out the slip ‘n’ slide or enjoy a sprinkler run, you can say yes with no hesitation. There’s no surface flooding, mildew growth, or brown patches after playtime; just a perfectly dry and perfectly green yard within the hour! 

3. Relax poolside

If your Sacramento home has an in-ground pool, there’s likely no place you’d rather be during the hot summer months. However, relaxing poolside can become scorching if you have natural grass or hardscapes such as concrete or brick as your pool decking. SGW’s TigerCool artificial grass products have built-in temperature-control technology that keeps surface temperatures up to 15% cooler. That means that you can lounge out or run about without any worry of burning your feet. The added traction of synthetic grass over slick, wet hardscapes also means that it’s safer for kids when they ignore your instructions to stop running near the pool. With great drainage and a comfortable feel, artificial grass will take poolside chilling to the next level.

If you’re ready to make the most of your summer, installing artificial grass in your Sacramento backyard is a great way to do so! The possibilities for fun and relaxation are virtually endless, so the whole family can enjoy your new landscaping, from parents to kids and even pets!

The Benefits of TigerCool Artificial Turf for Summer

When summer arrives in Sacramento, residents want to get outside and enjoy the sunshine from the comfort of their own backyards. Soaking up the heat from your back patio is a welcome feeling for many, but sometimes that heat can become a bit too overwhelming. While relaxing on the grass can help you cool off, natural grass can sometimes absorb the sun’s heat more than you’d like and become too hot to sit on or even walk on. Luckily, Synthetic Grass Warehouse Sacramento has the perfect solution—TigerCool artificial grass.

What is TigerCool?

TigerCool offers the latest in artificial grass cooling technology. In early variations of artificial grass, temperatures on the grass’ surface could often reach more than 175 degrees. Not only is this uncomfortable for you to walk on, but it also poses a health hazard for your young kids and pets. However, through years of research and development, TigerTurf and TenCate have revolutionized the turf industry through the creation of TigerCool temperature-control technology. TenCate, a worldwide innovator of space-age yarns, is perhaps best known for its work with NASA and Boeing. By utilizing TenCate’s industry-leading yarns, TigerTurf was able to engineer an advanced artificial grass product that significantly reduces artificial grass surface temperatures.

TigerCool Technology

TigerCool synthetic grass is created with heat-reflective pigments and UV inhibitors in order to reduce surface temperatures by up to 15 percent. Natural grass (and other variations of artificial grass) absorb infrared light from the sun and turn it into heat. Dark colors, like the greens and browns found in grass, absorb the most light and create the most heat buildup, causing those surface temperatures to increase the most. TigerCool, however, uses heat-reflective dark color pigments in the production process in order to prevent this heat buildup. With these pigments, infrared light is reflected rather than absorbed, which reduces surface temperatures significantly. In a series of tests conducted by TigerTurf, it was indicated that TigerCool technology was able to successfully reduce artificial grass temperatures by 15 percent, or up to 10 degrees. This makes it safer and more comfortable for your family to enjoy their synthetic grass lawn.
