Let’s Talk TigerCool

Not all artificial turf is created equally. In a recent Penn State study, the surface temperature of poorly designed, early generation artificial turf fields often exceeded 175 degrees. This is not only uncomfortable but completely unsafe for anyone that plays on those fields.

Through many years of research and development, we have revolutionized the synthetic grass industry. TigerCool yarns have been engineered with advanced U.V. inhibitors and heat reflective color pigments to reduce surface area temperatures. A series of solar panel tests demonstrate that TigerCool technology accurately reduces turf temperatures by 15%!

Our TigerCool products are perfect for any residential, commercial or playground landscape area. All of our products are non-toxic and lead-free, making it a great landscape alternative for any household with children or pets.

ASK JW: Turf Fresh

Now that you have synthetic turf, you’re excited for the next chapter of backyard maintenance, where everything is easier and there’s a lot less to worry about. Your pets are playing and they don’t even notice the difference. Everything is fantastic. However, in the summer months, it can be hard to combat the scent of pet urine. With just a regular rinse with the garden hose, you’re simply introducing moisture to combat pet urine. Without the use of pet deodorizing chemicals that are enzyme driven, bacteria will continue to spread and make odors harder to control.

 

You don’t have to worry, though. There’s Turf Fresh!

 

This month Ask JW will explain the properties of Pet Urine and how SGW Turf Fresh is the simple solution in keeping Fido’s “place to go”, healthy, fresh and smelling really, really good.’

Install of the Month: Tri City Synthetic Turf

Californians often resort to planting drought tolerant foliage for their landscapes. Even though the water restrictions have ended, the installation and planting of desert friendly plants and artificial grass has not subsided.

Tri City Synthetic Turf, an artificial grass installation company based out of San Marcos, recently converted 3,150 square feet of Synthetic Grass Warehouse’s Everlast’s Sequoia and 320 square feet of TigerTurf’s True Putt for a local homeowner.

“This job was about half turf installation, half landscaping. We included drought tolerant plants and giant stepping stones to break it up and make it more interesting,” Fedor Maus, owner of Tri City Synthetic Turf told us. “She was looking to create a luxury backyard that would still be water wise.”

For the homeowners, creating a landscape that the entire family could enjoy together was extremely important. “They decided on Sequoia because the color and feel of the product is so natural and beautiful,” Maus said. “We find that many homeowners that switch to synthetic turf are doing it for the low maintenance and realism, rather than just saving water.”

Tri City Synthetic Turf was founded in 2007 and pride themselves on being a smaller, more involved company than their competition. “It’s always my goal to leave a customer satisfied with a smile on their face,” Maus told us. “We are really hands on and we stand behind our work 100%. We’re very proud of the products we use and our work ethic.”

Tri City Synthetic Turf is the September 2017 “Install of the Month” winner. Congratulations!

Install of the Month: Water Wise Grass

After more than five years of drought, California has finally ended their state of emergency. Residents all over the state are celebrating, however water useage is still an ongoing issue for Southern California and homeowners continue to look for solutions. While most would expect demand for artificial grass to decrease with the passing of the drought, it has been exactly the opposite.

Water Wise Grass, an artificial grass installation company based out of San Diego, recently converted 1,200 square feet of Synthetic Grass Warehouse’s TigerTurf Diamond Pro Spring for a local homeowner. Diamond Pro Spring is designed for moderate to heavy traffic, and features TigerCool technology, allowing for a decreased surface temperature of 10 degrees Fahrenheit on sunny days.

“This client reviewed six other turf companies before choosing us,” said Mike Palmer, owner of Water Wise Grass. “They were the most detail oriented clients we’ve worked with, and had a lot of specifics that they wanted to include in their installation. I knew we could deliver on their expectations.” Palmer worked alongside the client to pick the perfect turf product for their needs.

The client was happy with the involvement of Palmer on their project, and mentioned it in their Yelp review of Water Wise Grass. “[Palmer] pointed out several differing products, his pet application processes, and allowed us the details to study up on them. I asked questions and tried to really understand what we were getting in terms of turf product array and pet installation,” they said.

Water Wise Grass was founded in 2014 and is growing steadily. They pride themselves on being a very consultative company, educating consumers about the benefits of turf products. “The selling point for our customers is usually just the knowledge and experience we bring to the table,” Palmer told us. “Homeowners don’t always know what to look for. They might just like the color or how soft it is, but we make certain we provide them with the best product for their needs that will keep them enjoying their lawn for years to come. I treat every client like they’re family.”

Water Wise Grass is our August 2017 “Install of the Month” winner! Congratulations.

ASK JW: Preventing wrinkles in turf

Some of us are experiencing record high temperatures, and the “Ask JW” Hotline has been ringing off the hook with homeowners and contractors asking “Why is my turf wrinkling”? There are four causes of turf wrinkling, which include improper ballast and infill placement, temperature changes, improper securing of the turf, and poorly manufactured synthetic grass.

There are a few ways to ensure you prevent wrinkling prior to your installation, and it is very important to take note of these steps. Removing the wrinkles can become increasingly more difficult after turf has been placed down for any length of time. No one wants their low maintenance, artificial lawn to become a hassle, so let’s talk more about how you can make sure your clients stay happy and wrinkle free.

Ask JW: Is Your Artificial Turf Melting?

Over the decades, synthetic turf has become landscaping’s most popular product to hit the market since the lawnmower. Through research and development, synthetic turf has evolved rapidly, and it’s only getting better. New components that make up the synthetic turf systems have become quality-driven. The backings are produced with a higher quality of textiles and produce strong tuft bind. The coatings that are applied to the backings are more resilient, flexible and can withstand thermal contraction better than before. The yarn that produces the fibers has high tech admixtures that prevent degradation and gives the synthetic turf longer life expectancy.

Window glare, however, and its ability to melt objects and materials has been an ongoing issue for a long time now. Intense heat being transferred through sunlight can cause damage, and sometimes injury. The first step in preventing property from being damaged from Reflective Ultraviolet Rays is to find out if you are a candidate or not. This month ASK JW will help you understand the issues that arise from reflective heat and how you can prevent any future damage to your synthetic turf, furniture, toys and surrounding materials and objects.
