The Benefits of TigerCool for Summer

Now that we’re in the throes of summer, Azusa residents are experiencing the unbearable heat that Southern California is known for. With hot temperatures comes hot ground to walk on, whether it’s grass or asphalt. When your backyard heats up, you want it to provide an oasis where you can cool off and make the most of the sunshine. Whether it’s you, your kids, or your pets, no one wants to walk around on grass that burns their feet. With our range of artificial grass products featuring innovative TigerCool technology, you’ll never have to worry about high temperatures ruining your outdoor plans again.

Several of our bestselling TigerTurf products feature the latest innovations available for artificial grass, including first-of-its-kind TigerCool temperature-control technology. Through years of research and development, TigerTurf and Tencate have revolutionized the turf industry through the creation of TigerCool. Tencate is a global innovator of space-age yarns, whose products have been used by companies such as Boeing and NASA. Utilizing their advanced yarn products, TigerTurf was able to engineer a product with heat-reflective color pigments and UV inhibitors that significantly reduces surface temperatures and, in turn, keeps you more comfortable. 

The extremely hot temperatures of surfaces such as pavement and grass are caused by the absorption of infrared sunlight into the surface material. Absorbed infrared light is transformed into heat. Conventional dark colors, such as those used in artificial grass products, absorb larger amounts of infrared light, which causes high heat buildup and increased surface temperatures. With heat-reflective color pigments, such as those used in TigerCool products, infrared light is reflected rather than absorbed, which causes a decrease in heat buildup. This has been proven to reduce surface temperatures by up to 15 percent, or 10 degrees. This makes it safer and more comfortable for you and your family to enjoy your artificial turf in Azusa.

TigerCool technology is available in two of our bestselling TigerTurf product lines. Our Diamond series and Marquee series both incorporate TigerCool technology and boast a wide range of synthetic grass options that will suit any need. From light to heavy foot traffic, our synthetic turf products can handle whatever durability you need. Pile heights range from 1.75 inches to 1.875 inches and face weights vary from 60 ounces to 75 ounces, so you can achieve the balance of aesthetics and practicality that you like best. All of our products are completely lead-free, non-toxic, kid-friendly, and pet-friendly, so every member of the family can enjoy your new artificial grass lawn and the benefits of TigerCool.

Why Artificial Grass is Perfect Year-Round

If you live in the Azusa area, you know how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy grass lawn with California’s heat waves and water shortage. Regardless of whether it’s summer or winter, green grass lawns are few and far between in Los Angeles. If you do manage to maintain a green yard, it’s sure to cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars in water bills and landscape maintenance services. With artificial grass from Duran Lawn Creations, you can be the envy of the neighborhood with perfectly green grass all year long, no matter what weather it has to endure.

Artificial Grass is Evergreen

Summer or winter, rain or shine, artificial grass remains perfectly green year-round. The synthetic polyethylene material doesn’t require watering or other maintenance in order to maintain its color, and it’s even created with UV inhibitors that prevent it from fading in the sun. Our synthetic turf products have dual-toned blades with brown thatch for an extremely realistic appearance that will have all your neighbors wondering how you maintain such a perfect lawn year-round. 

Keep Cool with Synthetic Turf

Artificial grass is also perfect in the summer because it has temperature-control technology that will keep you cool and comfortable all season. TigerCool technology is incorporated into several of our bestselling products, and it’s ideal for keeping surface temperatures down during the summer. TigerCool utilizes heat-reflective color pigments and UV inhibitors that reduce temperatures by up to 15 percent. Normally, infrared sunlight is absorbed and transformed into heat, causing heat buildup and rising surface temperatures. With heat-reflective pigments like those used in TigerCool turf products, however, that infrared light is reflected rather than absorbed, which causes a decrease in heat buildup. By reducing turf temperatures by 15 percent, your yard will be safer and more comfortable for you and your family all summer.

Artificial Grass Can Withstand Storms or Droughts

A delicate balance has to be achieved in order to maintain a real grass lawn. If your grass receives too much rain, the surface of the grass can flood and you’ll need to re-sod the entire area. If you don’t receive enough rain, or if you fail to adequately water your grass, it will result in unsightly dead, brown patches that are extremely difficult to revive. With artificial grass, there’s virtually no such thing as too much or too little water. Artificial turf is installed with an ultra-efficient drainage system that can drain at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard. Not only will your artificial grass never require re-sodding due to flooding, but it will be dry within the hour when it comes to average rainfall levels. In Azusa, lack of water is much more likely than the opposite. Luckily, with synthetic turf, this isn’t a problem either. Synthetic grass is the perfect drought-tolerant landscaping solution because it doesn’t need regular watering in order to maintain its coloring. A quick hose down every so often is recommended in order to keep the turf clean and free of debris, but your turf will never turn brown and uneven like natural grass. The ability to eliminate a costly irrigation system will reduce your water bill significantly, contributing to the quick return on investment.
