Hollow Blade Has Arrived! Artificial Grass That Keeps Moisture Inside To Stabilize the Temperature of the Lawn

artificialgrass Hollow Blade Has Arrived! Artificial Grass That Keeps Moisture Inside To Stabilize the Temperature of the Lawn

We are pleased to announce the release of first of its kind technology- "Hollow Blade"- that prevents moisture from transpiration.

Call us for FREE Samples! See pictures and specifications:Hollow Blade 73

If the heat absorbing properties of the artificial grass made you reluctant to buy; think again! Hollow Blade- first of its kind product by Global Syn-Turf is specially designed to lessen the temperature of the lawns during bright sunny days. This latest blade designed by GST has a hollow veil in the center of the grass which ensures that the temperature of the lawn continues to be stable and cool despite hot climate.

In plants, leaf surfaces are dotted with stomata (opening, or holes) bordered by guard cells that open and close the pore. It is stomata apertures that facilitate transpiration and cool grass as the escaping water vapor carries away heat energy. GST's Hollow Blade technology imitates the same process which helps in retaining moisture inside the stems for longer period thereby decreasing the lawn temperature.

In the last few decades, technology in the artificial grass industry has come a long way. The most important element in the artificial grass industry is creating a right angle during blade designing since it plays a crucial role for sunlight reflection. Failing to do so causes a substantial rise in the lawn temperature. However, Global Syn-Turf displayed a great leap forward and had successfully provided a phenomenal solution with its latest blade design Hollow Blade.

Shocking Climate Changes in Oregon: Drought Report

artificialgrass Shocking Climate Changes in Oregon: Drought Report
California has been getting the tons of attention for the historic drought, but it is not only one state that experiences severe economic impacts on agriculture and natural resources. The drought is officially declared in the state of Oregon.

According to the final Water Supply Review for 2015, the NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service), Oregon's snowpack in the winter of 2015 peaked at the lowest levels ranked in the last 35 years. Numerous snow monitoring sites set records for the lowest peak snowpack and earliest melt-out date since measurements began. Streamflow is presumed to be well below normal through the end of summer, especially in the driest regions of the state. The current statewide average precipitation is 88%.

In western Oregon, the snowpack topped 60-90% below the normal amounts. The snow melted three months earlier. The snowpack in the Eastern Oregon was insignificantly better, peaking 30-80% below average levels and up to 2 months earlier than usual. Lack of normal snowpack has led to lowest streamflow for the state. According to the National Drought Monitor, most of Oregon is included in the severe to extreme drought group. In 2015, Governor Kate Brown declared a drought state of emergency in 15 counties, as a result, and water shortages across Oregon are expected. 

The official drought is in place for 2015 in the following counties: Baker, Coos, Crook, Curry, Deschutes, Gilliam, Douglas, Grant, Harney, Hood River, Josephine,Jackson, Jefferson,  Klamath, Lane, Lake, Malheur, Morrow, Sherman, Union, Umatilla, Wasco and Wheeler.   Lynn County requested drought declaration on August 19, 2015. 

For homeowners in the state of Oregon, limited water supplies means the necessity to cut down water used for landscape irrigation. Water Resources Department suggests to water before 10 am in the morning to prevent water evaporation, fungus, and other lawn diseases. But water costs are rising across the country. In the city of Portland, Oregon, the rate in 2015-2016 is $3.940 per unit compared to $3.682 in 2014-2015. Water in Oregon is cheaper than in California where in 2015, the single-family household is charged $4.86 per unit, $6.52 for each additional unit after four used, and $12.40 for all wastewater units. There is no tiered pricing for Oregon water users yet. But as drought spreads, water agencies will increase prices to encourage businesses and residents to conserve water.

Sacramento: Back to Desert, or Lifting a Ban on Artificial Grass?

artificialgrass Sacramento: Back to Desert, or Lifting a Ban on Artificial Grass?
Sacramento Planning Commission is considering to lift a 1984 ban that prohibited to install artificial grass in the front yards. Due to the new California drought emergency water conservation regulations, state officials must take all necessary action to prepare for water shortages. Artificial grass is the alternative landscape option available to home and business owners today. In California cities, except Sacramento, rebates are offered by local water agencies to those who volunteer to tear off their water-thirsty lawns and turn them into a drought-tolerant landscape. But before the ban is lifted, Sacramento residents who installed synthetic lawns on their front yards can be fined by authorities.

Artificial grass technology in 1984 didn't allow natural, super-realistic look offered today. Synthetic turf back then was primarily used by sports industry. The initial 1984 ordinance was imposed to keep the aesthetics of the city intact. The time has changed. The artificial grass industry has evolved dramatically. Today, we have more than 75 artificial grass products intended for residential and commercial applications. We use more than a dozen unique technologies to replicate the feel and look of the natural grass. Synthetic lawns today look more alive, green and beautiful than regular lawns. Plus, they require no maintenance and reduce water usage by more than fifty percent for an average household.

The Planning and Design Commission of Sacramento is considering to set rules for front lawns fake grass as to require a pile height of grass to be not less than 1.25 inches. Samples of artificial grass and an installation guide will be presented this Thursday to the commission. If the proposal is approved this week, it will be sent to the consideration of City Council.

Most critics of fake lawns argue about fake grass with no factual prove at hand. A multitude of tests is done to every fake grass product sold in the United States. The only concern that were raised lately in the media is the artificial grass infill. Those concerns are aimed towards sports fields application, as rubber crumbs made of old tires are used on athletic fields to meet GMax Shock Attenuation Testing requirements. For landscape lawns, the infill solutions are simple. Zeofill (volcano ash), if you have pets or sand are 100% organic and safe.

For Sacramento residents, the lifting of an old ban means a new way to improve a curb-appeal of their properties while staying on top of 28 percent water cuts obligations. As the California drought continues, there is a serious choice for city authorities to make. Will Sacramento go back to its original desert look, or stay green no matter what forecast says?

Global Warming is Happening: Surviving Retirement

artificialgrass Global Warming is Happening: Surviving Retirement
If you are retired and live on a fixed income, don't fall into a trap of ignoring the entire global warming concept. According to surveys, two-third of Americans believe in a scientists disagreement on the issue. You might be surprised, but today scientists agreement on climate change exceeds 99%. Global warming is happening. The consequences are terrifying.

Water deficiency leads to a farming crisis in the drought states. Did you know that 90 percent of the broccoli, distributed in the United States, is grown in California, along with 99% of artichokes, 99% of walnuts, 97% of kiwis, 97 % of plums, 95% of celery, 95% of garlic, 89% of cauliflower, 71% of spinach, and 69% of carrots (the list goes on)? There is no other state, or a combination of climate and soil can outmatch California's production per acre. Lemons and Spinach California's supply is 55 percent higher than in any other state. If California farming fails to meet demand, prices will sky-rocket across the country.

While Jerry Brown, the Governor of California, ordered mandatory water cuts for residents, agriculture was exempted from new rules, even though farms are the biggest water users. Not everyone likes this measure, but if you think of a bigger picture, agricultural exemption prevents food and vegetable prices to become volatile shortly. 25% water cuts in California during the state of historic drought means a different world where "we have to act differently", said Jerry Brown.

Changing lawns to a drought-tolerant landscape is the big step toward global warming survival. Cutting down an outdoor irrigation saves more than a half of water usages for an average household.  As far as options for waterless landscape go, artificial grass installed in your front and backyard can save you gallons of water every day. Synthetic surfaces made by Global Syn-Turf can last twenty years or longer under standard residential use. It means water compliance with the state requirements and no maintenance fees. Artificial grass looks and feels better than semi-arid desert with concrete pavement, or a rock garden. If you have dogs, you don't have to worry about dust on your kitchen floor nor brown or dead spots of your lawn. The time of old astroturf that looks more like a short-fiber outdoor carpet is gone.

Today, we have more than 75 different types of fake grass that come in various colors, shades, heights and backing for any custom application. If you like to play golf, you can choose to transform your backyard into a tranquil golf course. If you have a dog, our pet turf is the cost-effective, environmentally friendly surface that allows any liquids including a dog urine to drain quickly through the backing leaving no smell and no residue behind.

In the last decade, artificial grass lawns became popular across the United States, not only in California, Nevada, Texas and New Mexico. Earlier, synthetic turf solutions were available only for commercial applications due to the high costs of material and installation, today we provide cost-effective solutions to homeowners and small businesses that can fit any budget and taste. Synthetic lawns significantly cut water bills and eliminate the need of lawn maintenance. If you are retired and getting ready to retire and keep you bills down, we suggest you to put artificial grass on your big investment list.

Yes, You Can Put Up That Artificial Grass

artificialgrass Yes, You Can Put Up That Artificial Grass

Question: The homeowner's association in my "planned community" does not allow artificial grass in my yard. What are my options? 

Answer: You should point the administration of your HOA to a new extension AB 349 of the bill AB 2104 by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego. AB 2104 required a common interest developments to adopt a updated model ordinance regarding water-efficient landscapes that are effective in conserving water. New assembly bill AB 349 prohibits HOAs impose a fine or assessment on separate interest owners for use of artificial grass or any other synthetic surface that resembles grass, unless your homeowner association uses recycled water for landscape irrigation. 

"We face a very real water shortage that challenges many of our old habits, and there's nothing fake about our responsibility to find ways to conserve wherever we can," Gonzalez said. "All Californians have tough benchmarks for reducing their water use, and it's our job to make sure homeowners have every opportunity to achieve the conservation we need." 

At the time of California historic drought, this act is an urgency statue shall go into immediate effect. Numerous homeowner associations discriminated and fined homeowners who attempted to replace their water-thirsty lawns with synthetic grass. 

Morrison Ranch Estates Homeowners' Association fined Agoura Hills homeowner, Greg Greenstein who replaced the grass on his property with artificial grass in his effort to conserve water, with more than $4,000 and demanded to remove the new lawn. 

Rancho Pacifica, a gated community of multimillion-dollar homes in the hills east of Del Mar, prohibited a retired couple, Brian and Frances Holloway, who live in a palatial 9,000-square-foot Mediterranean to get rid of the water- sucking front lawn. They fine them $50 per day until the lawn removal. 

La Costa Valley HOA, Carlsbad, CA turned down Val Buonaiuto, who planned to install artificial grass in his front yard. 

In Carlsbad, California James Zemel installed synthetic lawns in his front and backyards. According to LAtimes he spent $14,000, and his monthly bill has dropped to $38. His water district sent him a thank you letter for his conservation effort. However, his HOA has demanded to remove the grass from his front yard, and threaten him with fines and legal action. 

Las Costa Green HOA is one of the few in San Diego County that allows fake grass on front lawns. Its resident, Rocky Wilson, grandfathered synthetic grass installation in his home, in 2006. 

The first bill didn't include artificial grass as a part of the water-efficient landscape. Gonzales said she held back because of Brown's past opposition to protections. In 2011, the governor said individual HOAs should make the decision, not state government. Residents outside of homeowners associations are free to install fake grass with few, if any, restrictions. But in 2015, California found itself in the fourth year of severe and potentially devastating drought. 

Landscape irrigation, according to the Department of Water Resources draws 43 percent of residential water use. The installation of artificial grass, instead of traditional landscapes and lawns, can directly decrease outdoor water use to support the Governor's mandated 25-percent statewide water use reduction. 

During the state of emergency, declared by Jerry Brown on July 1, 2015, homeowners associations are prohibited to fine and discriminated the members who are installing artificial grass on their front lawns. Throughout California, homeowners are subject to strict water conservation ordinances. While in the middle of a water deficiency crisis, homeowner associations are not allowing members to perform deliberate sacrifices and are still forcing them to keep grass lawns, and fining them. AB 349 ensures that all homeowners have the right to conserve water by replacing grass with artificial turf. 

The bill stated that "Property owners who pursue water conservation should be encouraged, not sued or fined. Thus, this act is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, and safety."

New PET TURF with 3X Drainage Capacity Has Arrived!

artificialgrass New PET TURF with 3X Drainage Capacity Has Arrived!
Although Global Syn-Turf, Inc. has been a leading artificial grass manufacturer in the United States, with more than 75 synthetic turf products available to home and business owners, we have been steadily working on a completely redesigned artificial grass for dogs since the beginning of 2015. The new product, Pet Turf, does not keep under wraps anymore, and available today for everyone who craved to learn some intriguing details.

In an effort to make a truly affordable, high quality synthetic grass for use on pet areas, we combined the most popular options in one product that provide 3X superior drainage for any liquid to drain quickly through the turf backing without leaving unwanted residue. Since the backing on the turf is porous, all liquids including a pet's urine will drain quickly to the ground and will not stain the fibers. Unlike most artificial grass advertised in the United States as the appropriate turf for dogs, most grass systems have limited drainage and restricted cleanability. Insufficient drainage also leads to the smelly backyard. Pet Turf from GST is the ultimate artificial grass for dogs solution.

We incorporated our unique blade technology, called U-Blade into the specifications of Pet Turf. Shaped like a letter U, this technology supports superior durability and resiliency to the grass. Fibers designed in the U-shape support natural ability to bounce back and regain their fluffy texture. Pet Turf will fluff up in the heavy foot traffic conditions, or after heavy objects have been removed from the turf (for example, outdoor furniture.)

Durability and color stability is the other important Pet Turf characteristic. Pet Turf will not fade, and it's original dual colors, Emerald Green, and Olive Green will remain the same under our extended ten years warranty.

With the pile height 1 1/8'' and the face weight is 50 oz. per sq.yard, Pet Turf is soft to a touch and looks precisely as a real grass with advantages of zero-maintenance and water conservation. Added dual color thatching, green and brown, supports the natural look and fluffiness to your lawn or a dog run. If you are fighting an uphill battle with watering, fertilizing, mowing, edging, aerating, and re-sodding your lawns, Pet Turf ends this hassle with an easy, cost-effective solution. 

Many commercial pet institutions, veterinary hospitals, pet's hotels, dog parks, pet shelters find that benefits of switching to special artificial pet turf, is more efficient than deal with multiple issues associated with real grass. No dirty paws, no expensive maintenance, no high water bills make synthetic grass the number one option that save time and money. With Pet Turf, the transition is easy and affordable. With the promise of creating a safe, clean, long-lasting space for your pets, we can help to make your life and life of your pets hassle-free.
