Laguna-Turf

Congratulations Laguna Turf

Though the California drought may be coming to an end, homeowners have not stopped wanting waterwise landscaping solutions. The promise of having a picturesque green lawn without the maintenance and expensive water bills has been more enticing than ever.

Our May 2017 “Install of the Month” winner, Laguna Turf, recently installed artificial grass for a Rossmoor resident, converting their front yard from natural grass to over 800 square feet of Synthetic Grass Warehouse’s Diamond Light Spring.

The homeowner’s natural lawn suffered significantly because of California’s mandated water restrictions. While searching for a drought-friendly solution, the homeowners specifically wanted something that would allow their pets to continue to play on. Artificial grass seemed to be the perfect solution for the homeowner, especially after learning that it was tough enough to withstand heavy traffic and was safe for kids and pets alike.

Laguna Turf, a southern California turf installer and landscape designer, has been the company to beat in this Rossmoor neighborhood. After bringing artificial grass to over 15 lawns around the area, an increasing number of homeowners see the realism of the turf and can’t seem to resist making the switch. “The neighbors see the turf in other yards on their street and are always amazed at how good it looks. A lot of our projects come from referrals because everyone wants it for themselves,” Enrique Tuccio, Laguna Turf owner, says.

“Every homeowner wants their house to look great from the street and since turf has become so realistic, everyone has the option to switch and enjoy the added benefits.” Tuccio says. “We give people a lawn replacement and landscape option that they can be proud of that will help them save time, money, and water!”

Ask JW: Tucking Synthetic Turf Edges

Tucking synthetic turf edges has become the new trend in synthetic turf installations. When done properly, tucking synthetic turf edges can give beauty to the overall appearance, but you must understand how and when to use tucking before deciding to apply it to your installation.

Some contractors grade and compact the subgrade materials at the same level of the hardscape and then roll and tuck the synthetic turf to the edge which gives it a “pillow top” look. However, when the turf edges are not properly tucked and secured, safety concerns may arise for the home or business owner. If the finished elevation of the synthetic turf is much higher than the hardscape, a “trip hazard” will be present and can cause injury.

This month, Ask JW will explain when and when not to tuck as well as the proper steps in creating a tucked edge.

Ask JW: The Importance of Synthetic Grass Edging

The most important skill of any professional synthetic turf contractor is the perfection of Seams and Exterior Edges. If the exterior edging of the synthetic turf is not installed and secured properly, the integrity of subgrade soils will erode, allowing the edge of the synthetic turf to sink and leave a depression. This will also allow the exterior nails, spikes or staples to come loose which can be costly to repair. You want to make sure that the details of each installation is done to perfection and your customers will not have to encounter these issues in the future.

Congratulations Amazing Synthetic Greens

It’s pretty difficult for San Diego to be even more beautiful than it already is, with their great cityscape and sunny beaches. However, our April Install of the Month goes to Amazing Synthetic Greens & Lawns for their artificial grass installation at Bright Horizons preschool.

Using Diamond Pro Spring with TigerCool technology, they brought this San Diego preschool’s play area to life again. Diamond Pro Spring synthetic turf features a beautiful dual shade of field and lime green grass blades paired with a brown thatch layer to replicate the most natural of lawns.

Diamond Pro Spring turf is backed by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association. IPEMA promotes safety and in-depth information on issues regarding playground equipment and surfacing issues. Through rigorous third party testing, Diamond Pro Spring is one of the seven TigerTurf products that meets the requirements of the American Society for Testing Materials F1292 certification.

These preschoolers can now play free of the allergies and pesticides that natural lawns can carry. It even allows for extra padding to protect the children from falls and the turf backing is perforated so liquids can easily pass through with no added mess to the lawn! Diamond Pro Spring was a great choice for the heavy foot traffic this playground is likely to endure and it will look great for years to come.

We look forward to seeing more great installations from Amazing Synthetic Greens & Lawns in the future!

Ask JW: Contouring Synthetic Turf

“When should I go flat and when should I contour?” – a common question when it comes to turf installations. When drainage is not a concern and you are free to be as creative as you’d like with your turf installation, contouring will set your work apart.

When you contour synthetic turf, dynamics of light (sunlight) brings out multiple shades of colors when different angles are created. When the subgrade materials are contoured by grading slopes and small mounds, the beauty of the synthetic turf comes alive allowing the fibers to open and close resulting in a natural looking surface. This month’s Ask JW will talk about why contouring synthetic turf is crucial in creating a “natural look” for your synthetic turf project.
