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.

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.

Global Syn-Turf Showcases Drought-Tolerant Products at Carmel Valley Garden Show

fake-grass Global Syn-Turf Showcases Drought-Tolerant Products at Carmel Valley Garden Show

Global Syn-Turf, Inc., the leading artificial grass manufacturer, attended the 46th annual Carmel Valley Garden Show in Carmel Valley, CA, on April 3rd, where it showcased its drought-tolerant artificial grass products and industry expertise to the Northern California community. This eagerly anticipated event drew people from all over the region who came out for the exceptional vendors. The vendors, ranging from professional gardeners to flower arrangers to landscaping companies, displayed their latest products and methodologies. On display at Global Syn-Turf's booth were artificial grass samples, installation pamphlets and brochures.

artificial grass drought

"Global Syn-Turf has attended the Carmel Valley Garden Show for several years and was pleased once again to be a representative of the artificial grass industry in Northern California," said a GST rep. "This show is just one of the ways that Global Syn-Turf interacts with the Northern California community. Shows like this are essential for the development of our products and the artificial grass and landscaping industries. This hands-on experience encourages professionals and consumers alike to make the connection between their gardening and landscaping decisions and the environment and community."

Throughout the show, Global Syn-Turf and the show's participants were cognizant of California's water woes. And, due to Governor Jerry Brown's announcement last week of upcoming mandated water usage reduction, Global Syn-Turf's products were repeatedly noticed by visitors for their unique water efficiency.

"Since there's a drought right now, and we're facing a mandatory 25% reduction in water usage, it's critical to emphasize that there are opportunities to substitute water-intensive lawn materials with drought-tolerant materials like artificial grass -- which is just as beautiful as real grass," continued a GST rep. "The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the average household uses 96 gallons of water per day on outdoor uses. And more than half of that water is used for watering lawns and gardens. A significant percentage of that excess quantity can be eliminated simply by installing artificial grass in yards. In short, artificial grass affords the utility and joy of having a lawn with none of the harmful side effects."

artificial grass droughtThe GST rep said the greatest reward for Global Syn-Turf's participation in the show was seeing visitors' reaction to their drought-tolerant artificial grass products. He was approached throughout the first hours of the Carmel Valley Garden Show by visitors asking for tips on how to install artificial grass and about its various water-saving benefits.

Global Syn-Turf was founded in 2009. Since then, Global Syn-Turf have showcased their products annually, attracting more and more visitors each year. On the increasing popularity of artificial grass, the GST rep said, "The increased interest in Global Syn-Turf's products is a testament to the growth and success of the artificial grass industry and Global Syn-Turf as a company. In only in six years, artificial grass has gone from just a niche industry to being a part of the popular landscaping vernacular."
