Benefits of Artificial Grass During the Summer

June 11, 2019

As summer quickly approaches, Sacramento residents are preparing their homes so they can make the most of the warm weather. From heating their pool to powering up their AC, California residents know summer prep. One way that homeowners optimize their home for the summer months is by switching to an artificial grass lawn to save time, water, and money. Synthetic turf has numerous benefits year-round, but it is especially invaluable during summer.

Save water

Watering your yard in the summer heat seems like a futile effort. You use twice as much water only to see it evaporate immediately due to the excessive heat. Avoid overwatering your grass and still seeing dead patches by considering an artificial grass lawn. Installing synthetic grass will not only help your yard remain evergreen, but it will also allow you to conserve thousands of gallons of water each year. The average American household uses approximately 100 gallons of water every day on outdoor use alone. By switching to artificial grass, you can eliminate the need for daily watering and reduce your water usage significantly. Not only is this great for the environment, but it will also save you hundreds of dollars each year. Join the effort to conserve water and save money along the way by switching to artificial grass for your home this summer.

Save time

When it’s summertime, the last thing you want to do is spend hours outdoors performing laborious lawn maintenance. With synthetic grass, you can spend less time maintaining and more time enjoying the beautiful weather with friends and family. Even though grass grows more slowly during the summer, it still grows and requires regular mowing, edging, fertilizing, and other time-consuming services. Synthetic turf’s polyethylene material never grows and doesn’t require regular maintenance, so you never need to worry about wasting time on upkeep. Instead, spend your summer days enjoying your backyard with the kids and pets and making lifelong memories.

Stay cool

Although grass is undoubtedly cooler than pavement, it can still reach uncomfortable temperatures that discourage summertime play. However, our products’ advanced TigerCool technology is changing that. Several of our market-leading TigerTurf products feature innovative temperature-control TigerCool technology. Engineered by TigerTurf and Tencate, TigerCool features heat-reflective color pigments and UV inhibitors that reduce turf surface temperatures by up to 15 percent. Usually, infrared sunlight is absorbed by dark colors such as those in grass blades and transformed into heat that builds up and raises surface temperatures. However, with TigerCool’s heat-reflective pigments, infrared light is reflected instead of absorbed. This results in significantly reduced turf temperatures. Keep your family safe and comfortable this summer by choosing a TigerCool artificial grass product for your Sacramento home.

Have fun

Synthetic grass doesn’t just have practical benefits; it can optimize your home for fun as well! Artificial turf is the perfect landscaping solution for installing putting greens, playgrounds, pool decks, bocce ball courts, and more. Its durability and efficient drainage make it an excellent choice for water games and sports, while the ability to add underlayer padding makes it great for kids’ jungle gyms. Create custom putting greens or an eye-catching design feature; with synthetic turf’s versatility, it’s all up to you!
