Turf War At The Bay Area Largest Water Agency

Tor Mclean, the resident of Lafayette, California, solved the California historic drought issue at his own backyard. He tore away his water-thirsty lawn and turned it into a beautiful, eternally green retreat that requires zero maintenance and lowers approximatly 70% of his monthly water bill. Plus, he is getting a rebate from East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) to decrease the cost of transition.

"I want it look pretty. I want it look good, " -said Tor Mclean. "Don't have to spend a lot of money on it, and conserve water. No matter if the drought is over or not," - he said, "this project is going to stay."

Abby Figueroa, the East Bay Municipal Utility District, told ABC7 News that the agency planned the cap up to $2,500 in cash rewards to homeowners who are switching to the drought-tolerant natural plants. They might extend rebates to those who go with artificial grass with a cap of $1,200. But California Redbud, Cleveland Sage and Cofee Berry, though look decent on the front lawns, can't replace traditional California backyards, the place for kids to play and for adults to enjoy the 4th of July barbeque. But not everyone is happy.

As a continuous effort to minimise the plastic waste, the Alameda County public recycling agency, sent a letter in protest to Est Bay Mud. "This stuff has no place to go after its useful life other than a landfill, and people may install it and send it to landfill a few years after the drought is over," Stop Waste spokesperson Gary Wolff said.

But the question is: will the drought be over in a few yeas? Artificial grass life expectancy under regular traffic is at least twenty years. Most Californians realize that no matter what agencies say, July 1 water price increase is just a beginning.

EBMUD raised water rates three years in a row. Someone has to pay for aging infrastructure, and this someone is California residents. Last year, Abby Figueroa mentioned that increasing water prices are "politically challenging." Now, when the California drought got to the catastrophic stage, it is time to invest in a new technology, and it will affect the cost of every household in the state.

"The drought has been the main drive in the industry. People look for the alternatives to their real sod," - said Andrew Gao, Global Syn-Turf's CEO, in his interview with Cornell Barnard, ABC7 News.

As Cornell Barnard mentioned on air, the artificial grass business is booming. "Grass is always greener at Global Syn-Turf. The demand is so high for the fake grass they make it's been hot for their business for the last two years."

Most synthetic turf manufacturers in the United States have a challenging time to keep with growing demand. Some of them have at least three months in back orders. At Global Syn-Turf, we are happy to give an immediate solution to our customers. Global Syn-Turf is the largest manufacturer of artificial grass in the United States with the largest inventory of highest quality synthetic grass in the country.

Cornell Barnard, ABC7 News, believes that "during the drought there is nothing fake about saving water."

California Drought Salvation - Global Syn-Turf at San Francisco's Fox News

fake-grass California Drought Salvation - Global Syn-Turf at San Francisco's Fox News

As a drought becomes a major concern in California, the idea of replacing old lawns with artificial grass becomes more and more attractive to home and business owners. In the interview with Ken Wayne, Fox News, San Francisco, Jim Luthi, the homeowner of Newark, confessed he has bit the bullet and replace the sod with artificial turf: "Thirty something years of having droughts on and off. "

As every homeowner knows, a nice lawn takes a lot of work and water, and for some it doesn't worth it anymore.

"A few years ago I wouldn't have got this because I didn't like the artificial turf, but they've gotten so good now that I figured you know what, I'm going to do it. And I wanted to lessen the workload on myself a little too," Jim said.

Michael McGinnis, a landscaper, loaded his pick up with a giant roll of artificial turf at Global Syn-Turf's warehouse in Hayward, California. He says he is getting a lot more business installing turf.

"It's becoming extremely popular. People can't get enough of it I guess," he told KTVU.

The artificial grass industry is exploding. Global Syn-Turf, the largest artificial grass manufacturing company in America runs 45,000 square foot warehouse in Hayward. But that's only a small part of their business. They carry artificial turf products all around United States, including large metropolitan areas in Florida, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, New York and East Coast. Residents and landscaping businesses in Southern California pick up turf directly from GST's huge Los Angeles and San Diego warehouses. With increasing popularity of artificial turf in United States, most manufacturers run out of products quickly, but not Global Syn-Turf.

Dave Maronic, a company vice-president, told KTVU the business is booming. "We've doubled, tripled every month," he said. "Different engineered blades is the way of the world right now."

Global Syn-Turf produces more than 65 types of artificial grass of different colors, heights and weights. Engineered blades are designed for high performance, impeccable resilience, super-natural looking turf. It is not your old-fashioned, carpet looking Astroturf.

"It looks just like the real thing, feels like the real thing. It's environmentally safe for the kids, for the pets," said Maronic.

With the late concern about a crumb rubber linked to health issues and used by other artificial grass manufacturers, Dave Maronic made it clear that Global Syn-Turf has never been in favor with the use of old, used crumb tires, and always recommended natural infill solutions to their customers.

"It's environmentally safe for the kids, for the pets," said Maronic. "There's different padding to meet G-Max ratings for fields that you don't have to use that rubber. So it's not something we carry. Not something we sell," he said.

G-Max is the measurement of the shock attenuation of sports surfaces. The performance values of an artificial grass field can be understood as a reflection of the field's G-Max rating. With the G-Max below 120, the surface is too soft and may not provide enough energy return to the athlete, and leads to premature exhaustion. When G-Max rating is above 180, it creates an overly hard field, and will cause a performance hazard introducing the risk for severe injuries. The use of crumb rubber is not required to achieve perfect G-Max rating, and there are other ways to achieve a maximum level of protection to athletes.

This year, Global Syn-Turf installed a million square feet of turf at the Twin Creek Sports Complex in Sunnyvale, California.

You may think that installing artificial grass is a more expensive alternative to a natural sod, but in a long haul it pays for itself by reducing water bills and the maintenance costs. In California, major water agencies run rebate programs to help homeowners transition their lawns into the drought-tolerant landscape. According to professor of Earth sciences at UC Santa Cruz Lisa Sloan, who predicted a severe California drought back in 2004, "the actual situation in the next few decades could be even more dire that our study suggested." But even the scientists are wrong, for most homeowners swapping to artificial lawns makes more sense money and maintenance wise.

At least that's the thinking of Jim Luthi as he gazes at his pristine Newark yard. "I think it looks great. Looks fabulous. Looks like regular grass."

How To Create an Accelerated Surface Drainage?

You create surface drainage by grading an area so that water collects and flows to a lower elevation away from the site. Regardless of surface characteristics, when it comes to surface drainage, the slope is the most important issue to consider. For efficient drainage, turf or landscaped areas should have a minimum slope of 2 percent. ...

Amazon Now Sells Landscape Services

fake-grass Amazon Now Sells Landscape Services
Amazon.com, electronic commerce company, has expanded its services to include connecting homeowners with landscape contractors. The site, Amazon Home Services, launched earlier this month and allows based businesses to sell their services through the website. It may be in the very near future when artificial grass installers, too, are connected to homeowners looking to save money and water on their lawn care through Amazon's new portal. Amazon is already a seller of physical products, artificial grass being one of them, but now they're trying to make way into the services marketplace, competing with such companies like TaskRabbit, Angie's List and Uber. For example, for roughly $120 you can have your lawn mowed by an Amazon-approved lawn maintenance contractor; and if you live in the appropriate service area, you can have your goat grazed it you so fancy. Amazon's revenue model is that it takes a percentage commission from all of the services sold through their site: 20 percent from the sale price of standard services, and 15 percent from custom services. Will Amazon become the go-to website for artificial grass installers to connect with potential clients? Perhaps. ...

Global Syn-Turf Launches New Eco-friendly Products to Help Companies Adapt to Growing Demand for Artificial Grass

fake-grass Global Syn-Turf Launches New Eco-friendly Products to Help Companies Adapt to Growing Demand for Artificial Grass

 Global Syn-Turf, Inc., the artificial grass industry's leading manufacturer and supplier, has launched five new eco-friendly products to their line of artificial grass innovations. The new products continue the company's reputation for producing state-of-the-art artificial grass technologies and accessories, and anticipating the needs of artificial grass installers worldwide.

The new artificial grass innovations being launched are: Turf Super Glue for seaming, seaming tape, bender board and stakes, galvanized spikes, and golf cup caps. The new products are to be used by artificial grass installers in their synthetic turf and putting green installations.

"Global Syn-Turf loves a challenge, especially when it involves inventing new and improved industrial artificial grass products," said Rachel Brady, Global Syn-Turf's Sales and Marketing Manager. "After a few experiments, we've perfected the products, which are now ready for popular consumption. We believe these new accessories will be very useful to the public and an integral component of our success this year and beyond" said Ms. Brady.

The first product, Global Syn-Turf's firm, high-quality seaming glue, Turf Super Glue, is an effective and environmentally friendly adhesive for seaming and binding artificial turf to various surfaces.

  • Perfect for seaming together sections of artificial grass, synthetic pet grass and putting greens
  • Solvent-free, eco-friendly, non-flammable, non-toxic, and non-hazardous formula
  • Glue can also be used for bonding artificial turf to various substrates, including road base, decomposed granite, crushed gravel, concrete, asphalt and wood
  • Will not disintegrate even in extreme weather conditions
  • Easy to apply and clean up

The second product, Global Syn-Turf's strong-yet-pliable seaming tape, is intended to be used in conjunction with Turf Super Glue, and is placed underneath the artificial turf, binding it to various substrates.

Seaming Tape to Glue Edges of Artificial Grass

  • Suitable for use over decomposed granite, crushed gravel, concrete, and shock pads
  • Ideal for all types of turf applications and absorbs glue through the entire surface.
  • Using seaming tape in conjunction with Turf Super Glue will yield the perfect seam every time

According to Rachel Brady, "The Seaming Glue and Seaming Tape are great additions to our line of artificial grass adhesives, as they are perfectly suited for use in many different lawn configurations, and can be used with both putting greens and standard artificial grass surfaces. These new and effective artificial grass adhesives position Global Syn-Turf as the very best resource for installers looking to increase productivity with better adhesive solutions for their artificial grass installations."

Global Syn-Turf's beautiful new bender board edging is the third product being launched this week. Bender board provides a beautiful wood-grained edging for your artificial grass installation.

Bender Board Shape Edges of Synthetic Turf Landscape

  • Provides a stout partition between mulch beds, concrete and artificial grass
  • Sturdy structure makes it resistant to weather, fading and pets
  • Suitable for straight, curved, and irregular edges
  • Flexible and easy to install

To be used in combination with the bender board are their sturdy and inconspicuous bender board stakes. Bender board stakes are polypropylene and are to be placed every two inches along the bender board edging. Their brown color will blend in with your bender board and the landscape's circumambience.

 Bender Board Dark Brown Wood Plastic Spikes

Ms. Brady stated, "We recognized a need our customers had for a high-quality, affordable, and timeless artificial grass edging, and designed a bender board to fulfill this very need. Whether customers are planning to use it to differentiate their artificial grass installation from a raised layer of mulch, or to block weeds and foreign plants from growing into their artificial grass areas, this bender board product is the perfect solution. Coupled with the bender board stakes, a natural, wood-colored edging is now an easy aesthetic for every landscaper and artificial grass installer to accomplish."

The fourth product, galvanized spikes, is a great choice for securing artificial grass seams and edges.  The steel spikes (nails) are resistant to rust and extreme weather and have a galvanized finish. The galvanized spikes are multipurpose, suitable for securing various surfaces.

"We are very excited to expand our accessories line to include the galvanized spikes. The galvanized spikes provide a solution for artificial grass installers who prefer an alternative to staples," said Rachel Brady. "Ultimately, this particular innovation is a means for Global Syn-Turf to begin offering more fastening products to the turf industry, and will allow us to bring reliable Global Syn-Turf products to installers everywhere-€”irrespective of their installation preferences."

And the last product being launched this week is Global Syn-Turf's specially designed, eco-friendly Golf Hole Cap.  This product provides a firm-yet-easily-removable barrier between your golf hole and the environment.  The universal Golf Hole Cap is designed to fit regulation size golf cups, and is constructed with sturdy, durable plastic, with built-in, reliable UV protection, ensuring that the cap will resist fading and disintegration.

Golf Cup Cover Eco-Friends Putting Greens Artificial Grass

  • Firmly sits in the golf cup and will not be dislodged by heavy gusts
  • Texturized top
  • Repurposes your putting green for non-golf activities by covering the golf hole
  • Will fit any PGA, USGA, or other Standard Regulation Golf Cup
  • Prevents leaves, debris and liquids from falling into the hole
  • Prevents pedestrians from injuring themselves by stepping into the hole

On the new golf hole cap product, Rachel Brady stated, "Our new golf hole cap is the perfect solution for protecting your putting green. Not only that, it can serve to repurpose the putting green for alternative activities, such as playing with your kids or dog, or entertaining guests -€“ all you have to do is place our golf hole caps over the golf holes, and you're putting green is instantaneously transformed into a generic turf surface for all kinds of non-golf activities. Global Syn-Turf places importance in usability; as such, the Global Syn-Turf golf hole cap enables homeowners with putting greens to maximize the value and use they get out of their back yard putting green properties."

Global Syn-Turf's products are voted the best artificial grass for commercial and residential properties. The company creates durable and safe surfaces. No matter what the conditions or climate, Global Syn-Turf synthetic turf can withstand high usage, risk-free. And factors such as this are the motivating causes of why people are saying that Global Syn-Turf synthetic turf solutions are setting standard with innovative technologies specifically developed to guarantee the health and safety of its sportive users. If you combine the practical applications, sustained smoothness, and uniform padding, with the health and safety benefits, the cost of installing Global Syn-Turf artificial turf goes from that of an expenditure to that of an investment.

Artificial Grass is the Lawn Surface of the Future

fake-grass Artificial Grass is the Lawn Surface of the Future

Immediately following Governor Jerry Brown's announcement that a 25% reduction in California's water usage is mandated, a good number of residents and homeowners in California agree that the state's approval of artificial grass is the beginning of a larger wave to come in the future. During his initial announcement, Governor Jerry Brown stated that the idea of having a nice little green grass lawn getting watered every day is a thing of the past.

The California Water Resources Control Board is scheduled to release its proposal for how they will achieve a 25% reduction in two weeks. The restrictions are to take effect on June 1, 2015.

Many are now not only open to but keen on converting their lawns to artificial grass. One homeowner in Orange County, for instance, says that she and her mother have been living in a house with a real grass lawn for 60 years. But as they went shopping this weekend they walked by an artificial grass supply store and her mother declared that artificial grass is the yard surfacing material of the future. Both she and her mother are open to installing artificial grass if keeping their current real grass lawn becomes unsustainable.

However, she said that she and her mother are not willing to go so far as to install drought-tolerant xeriscaping like cacti, etc., in their yard, because it doesn't provide the functionality that a fake grass lawn provides as far as being a suitable surface for the kids and the whole family to play and supporting physical activities.
