The Grass Really is Greener on the Other Side: Clearing Up Six Misconceptions About Artificial Turf

Save water. Save money. Look—and feel—good doing it.

Yesterday we shared the story of how Edi Santos founded Cali Green Turf, along with our top six benefits to going green with our artificial grass. Check out that blog post here.

Today, we’d like to address some of the questions and concerns that we hear almost daily: “I’m interested in artificial turf, but I’ve heard …”

So here we go.

Answers to the six most common concerns we get:

1. “…it’s expensive.”

Turf costs money, it’s true—as does any landscaping project. We’ve partnered with Ygrene to help you finance your installation with zero initial out-of-pocket cost by putting your home equity to good use. Also, for what it’s worth, we’ve won some big projects because clients found our pricing to be the most competitive—without sacrificing quality.

2. “…it’s hot.”

Historically, turf is warmer than grass. We offer the latest innovation in turf with TigerCool. It reduces turf temperatures by 30% making it possible to go barefoot even on warmer days.

3. “…it’s toxic.”

We care about your children as much as we care about our own. We would not be comfortable selling you a poisonous product. Our turf is 100% lead-free and uses all-natural non-toxic silica sand as the infill. No crumb rubber here.

4. “…it’s dirty.”

We offer a permeable, durable, antimicrobial turf made especially for pet owners. No yellow spots. No bacteria build-up. No smell.

5. “…it looks fake.”

There are many colors and grass heights to choose from, so your grass can look as real … or as fake … as you want it to.

6. “…it won’t last.”

We stand by our product and offer a 15-year guaranteed warranty. That’s longer than seed or sod sticks around, and way less maintenance to keep your lawn looking good!

Here’s the deal …

Listen, we’re not saying, “Let’s turf the entire planet!” That would be crazy.

Our planet needs a variety of ground cover. Real grass is great where it rains. And where livestock graze. Thistle bushes still look cool in the arid desert. Fruits and veggies and grains use a lot of water but give us nutrients. Deciduous trees clean our air and evergreens provide shade and shelter. We love live plants. And we support water reclamation and initiatives to recycle water for irrigation.

What we are saying is that living in an area where it rains, on average, less than 35 days per year, when faced with the option to:

  •      waste thousands of gallons of water every year to maintain a lush, green lawn
  •      live with ugly dead grass
  •      eliminate the yard and install cold, unwelcoming gravel
  •      or install beautiful, no-water, green faux grass that looks perfect year-round and saves California resources…

Well … we think the choice is obvious. Don’t you?
