Does Artificial Turf Get Too Hot in the Summer?

May 26, 2021

The onset of the summer season brings with it many things, including rising temperatures and warmer weather. A concern that we often hear at SGW Sacramento from those considering installing artificial turf for their yard, especially around this time of the year, is about the effect that the summer heat can have on synthetic turf. It’s entirely rational to worry about it because the last thing homeowners want is a yard that is too hot to stand on and largely unusable. For those on the fence about whether to install artificial grass, here’s a brief explanation as to why you won’t have to be concerned about the heat having a negative effect on your synthetic turf.

Artificial Turf and Heat

High-quality artificial turf does a stellar job at managing the summer weather. At SGW Sacramento, our synthetic grass options are particularly effective because they utilize TigerCool technology, the latest in artificial turf cooling improvements. TigerCool yarns have been engineered with heat reflective color pigments and advanced U.V. inhibitors that can help reduce surface temperatures by ten degrees. No longer will you have to worry about the summer heat interfering with your plans. With our TigerCool artificial grass products, any outdoor event or activity will be a comfortable and pleasant experience.

Cooling Measures You Can Take

If you do find yourself in a situation where your artificial turf is a bit too warm for your liking, there are measures that you can take to help cool it down. Here are some simple steps for lowering the temperature of your artificial turf:

Have Some Shading

Having something that provides shade for your artificial turf can help it stay cool even with warmer weather conditions. If your yard doesn’t have any plants or trees that can provide shade, you can choose to install an awning or canopy over your synthetic turf. Whether it’s natural or artificial shading, having some sort of cover for your synthetic turf can have a positive impact in preventing overheating from occurring.

Occasional Watering

If you’re looking for a way to quickly cool off your synthetic grass, watering it is an effective and expedient method for lowering temperatures. You also won’t have to worry about any puddles forming or any buildup occurring because of the drainage system that is featured with many artificial turf options. At SGW Sacramento, our synthetic grass products have excellent drainage that gets the job done in an efficient manner.
