    Kids, Playgrounds and SYNLawn, Oh My

    Moms, you should be jumping for joy once you hear this.  A large number of schools and city playgrounds are utilizing artificial grass for their playground surface.

    That means no more grass stains.

    SYNLawn works wonders for playgrounds or any kid filled area for that matter.  City officials and school boards are turning to artificial grass for multiple reasons.  It’s clean, extremely durable, is designed to provide safety from falls of up to 10 feet, is ASTM certified and ADA compliant, 100% recyclable and the list goes on.

    Now imagine this new playground surface in your own backyard.  Yes, it’s possible!


    Wouldn’t it be great to welcome the kids in from the backyard and not worry about muddy shoes or trying to work out those stubborn grass stains.  And not to boast, but you would never have to worry about grass allergies again either.  It sounds like a dream, right?  I’ts not!  Your kids can run, jump, skip and fall all over SYNLawn as much as necessary without the mess of natural grass.

    So mom, it is time to relax a little and spend less time worrying about the mess that the kids are bringing in.  Did I mention that dad can relax too?  No more watering, mowing, edging or fertilizing.  Ever.

    Mowing vs. Endless Possibilities

    Okay, the big question!  What are you doing this weekend?

    I don’t know about you, but I have a lot planned and mowing my lawn isn’t one of them.  I will be sitting back reading a book or watching the game while looking out at my perfectly manicured lawn… that I haven’t touched in years.    No way, how is it possible, you ask.  Well, because I have fake grass.  SYNLawn, to be exact.

    Not only does having SYNLawn prevent me from having to get out in the heat or cold to cut grass, it helps out the world a bit too.  I know, it sounds dramatic, but hey I’m doing my part.  Look at these crazy statistics about the gas lawn mower…

    > Gas lawn mowers represent 5% of US air pollution

    > Americans burn 800 million gallons of gas each year with lawn mowers

    > One gas mower running for an hour emits the same amount of pollutants as eight new cars driving 55 mph for the same amount of time…WOW!

    >Lawn mowers produce several types of pollutants, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, ozone precursors, and carbon dioxide.  I couldn’t tell you exactly what all of these are, but they definitely don’t sound too good.

    Now I’m not sounding too crazy, am I?  Who knew that the picture of Dad out in the yard cutting the grass could be causing such havoc in the universe.  An added bonus, SYNLawn saves water too and lots of it.

    We Believe in the Collaborative Process

    The decision to install synthetic grass at your home or business is a big one on a variety of levels. We want your experience with us to be a positive one from start to finish, and in our experience one of the best ways to assure this is by making the design and installation process as collaborative as possible.

    We may be experts when it comes to synthetic grass products, but we are not experts when it comes to your tastes, your outdoor space and your budget. Those areas are your domain, and we have a lot to learn from you in that regard. We make it our business to listen and learn, and to include you in the design and installation process at every turn with an eye toward a finished product that will exceed your expectations.

    This is not to say that we won’t have our opinions as to the design of your synthetic grass application. We will consult with you on-site at your home or business, getting a feel for your available space. The recommendations we make will take into account your available space, your budget and more. Our goal is to leave you with an installation that fits right into its surroundings; assimilating in a way that upgrades your outdoor aesthetic.

    If at any time during the design process you are unsure of something, please feel free to share your opinions with us. Effective collaboration depends on great communication, and we value the opinions of our customers. At the end of the day you need to be happy with the end result. On our end we want you to be more than happy. We want you to be ecstatic!

    Here at SYNLawn, we are always up for a good collaboration. Call us when you’re ready, and let’s get the ball rolling on your synthetic grass installation!

    Synthetic Grass and Doing Your Part to Conserve Water

    It is no secret that the state of California is in the midst of a potential water crisis. In fact, in October of 2013 the state released a 5-year “Water Action Plan” intended to avoid a statewide water supply crisis. Fresno residents live in one of the driest areas of a state that is already prone to droughts. On a personal level, there are things we can do to cut down our water consumption, and the installation of artificial grass at our homes is one of them. Synthetic grass requires no watering, affording you the opportunity to conserve thousand of gallons of water per year and, in the process, save by lowering your water bills considerably.

    We know that people don’t install artificial strictly in order to conserve water, and that’s OK. Our customers want to own a lawn or putting green that maintains its perfect look and feel year-round, with no watering driving up their utility bills and no yard work consuming their free time. The ability to conserve water at a very significant level is an added bonus, and is one that benefits not only you on a micro level but also your community and state on a macro level.

    Perhaps you’re all in on the idea of an artificial lawn and the opportunity to conserve water, but are concerned about the nature of today’s synthetic grass products. Let us assure you that the synthetic grass of today is so lifelike in look and feel that it makes even natural grass stand up and take notice! One of the best parts about a synthetic grass installation is that it requires virtually nothing from you other than your enjoyment, which is an easy job for our customers.

    The water crisis in California isn’t going away anytime soon. While none of us can solve the issue on our own, we can make small changes in our own lives that allow us to do our part for the greater good. Let us show you how you can conserve water and save money while simultaneously upgrading your outdoor space!
