As drought continues across the state, it's more important than ever for Californians to take into consideration their consumption of water resources. The continuing awareness for eco-friendly lifestyles has impacted commercial and residential properties in Goleta, California and Santa Barbara County, making them open to go-green home lifestyles. The days of unnatural-looking, scratchy, and uncomfortable turf are gone. Modern-day synthetic grass looks super-realistic, plus more recent developments in grass imitation mean the turf is soft to a touch and comfortable to walk on. When installed well, it is hard to tell the difference between real and artificial.
Global Syn-Turf synthetic grass products are used nationally and internationally in all types of applications including residential, commercial, sports fields, golf & putting greens, parks, schools, playgrounds, and other recreation areas.
Synthetic grass is a low-maintenance and water-friendly alternative for anyone who enjoy the look of a grassy lawn. The installation of artificial grass at an average home can conserve approximately 22,000 gallons of water per year. It does not require pesticides, fertilizer or mowing to look healthy. Synthetic grass also reduces urban runoff caused by irrigation as well as the amount of green waste going into landfills.
The latest generation of artificial turf produces by Global Syn-Turf replicates dense natural grass in appearance and gives a consistent year-round, all-weather surface. Modern synthetic turf has a drainable backing and durable "grass" blades that are in-filled with a granular filler to resemble natural turf.
Homeowners, schools, and municipalities are increasingly removing native grass from yards, parks, and sports fields, with many opting to install synthetic grass instead. In states, where drought has led to a severe water shortage, the turf swappers are also motivated by generous city and county rebates.
It's no secret that green lawns faded to brown in the face of a drought. Rather than relying on the flow of water supply, however, switching to synthetic grass allows enjoying a pristine, green lawn throughout the year.
The key benefit of artificial grass, particularly in the midst of the drought, is the expected water savings. On average, homeowners in Goleta, California can expect to save 55 gallons of water per square foot per year. This adds up to significant cost savings, too.
Weeding, watering, planting, mowing, and edging can take up a lot of time and human resources in commercial settings. Converting to synthetic turf can save a homeowner up to 150 hours of lawn maintenance per year. Artificial turf requires almost zero upkeep and maintenance, making lawn mowers and sprinklers a thing of the past.
