Synthetic Turf’s Ultra-Efficient Drainage

Synthetic turf has grown exponentially since it first gained popularity in the late 20th century. Extensive research and technological advancements in recent years have resulted in artificial grass products that are not only virtually indistinguishable in appearance from real grass but that are far superior in functionality and practicality. One benefit of installing artificial grass in your Azusa home is the inclusion of a highly efficient drainage system. Synthetic turf’s advanced drainage capabilities provide unparalleled efficiency in draining water or pet waste from your outdoor space, making it the ideal landscaping solution for areas with kids, pets, or abundant outdoor activities. If you’re considering synthetic grass installation for your home, speak to an expert here at Duran Lawn Creations for more information about product drain rates and which artificial grass option is right for you.

How Does Synthetic Grass Drainage Work?

Every artificial grass installation includes the installation of a drainage grid. This advanced geocell drainage grid creates a one-inch air void underneath your artificial lawn. It elevates the synthetic grass in order to allow air to circulate and water to drain through rapidly and efficiently. Our drainage grids are made from 10 percent recycled copolymer, which guarantees that it will withstand extreme temperatures without sacrificing performance. By creating a pocket of empty space between the turf product and the underlying concrete, the drainage system is able to flush away pet waste and other bacteria with unparalleled efficiency. This keeps your lawn clean and as sanitary as possible for you and your family to enjoy worry-free.

Drainage is Perfect for Pet Turf

If you have a kennel, dog park, vet clinic, or just a home with pets, artificial turf’s 100 percent vertical drainage is the perfect landscaping solution. Liquid and solid pet waste can be washed away immediately thanks to the 92 percent air void underneath the turf, so you can keep the area clean and odor-free. A flushing system can also be installed for increased drainage capabilities in areas heavily populated by dogs. This system is low cost and easy to install since it utilizes any available water source and inexpensive PVC piping. With artificial turf’s remarkable drainage capabilities, you can keep any animal common areas clean and odor-free for humans and dogs alike to enjoy.

Synthetic Grass Drainage for Playgrounds & Fields

Artificial grass is the ultimate drainage solution for play areas and athletic fields. It’s used by commercial athletic facilities and professional sports teams due to its uniform shock absorbency and 100% vertical drainage. Its impressive drainage rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard helps any field stay completely dry, minimizing water and mud-related injuries. Avoid flooded fields or muddy playtime with synthetic grass drainage courtesy of Duran Lawn Creations. 

No matter the size of your artificial grass installation, you deserve the best products and services on the market. Here at Duran Lawn Creations, we include highly efficient drainage systems with every Azusa installation in order to ensure that your turf is as functional and practical as possible.

4 Things to Look for in an Artificial Grass Installer

Although there are many home improvement projects that are fun and easy to DIY, there are other renovations that are best left to the professionals. Artificial grass installation is one such example. There are many individuals and even landscape businesses that promise you artificial grass installation services, but it takes a trained and experienced professional to achieve a high-quality and longlasting installation that will look entirely natural. If you’re searching for a trustworthy artificial grass installer in the San Dimas area, make sure that you are looking for these five things before you make your decision.

Reviews & Testimonials

Whether you’re looking into a recommendation from a friend or just searching Google, it’s always a good idea to check your prospective installer’s ratings online. Search for testimonials on their website, Yelp, Google, and any other resources available in order to gauge their average customer satisfaction rating. Some companies can sell themselves to you as the perfect option, and it’s only once you see poor customer reviews that you reconsider. Doing your research now will save you significant time (and money) later, so searching reviews is a step that definitely shouldn’t be missed.

Quality Products & Manufacturer

Not all artificial grass products are created equal. Quality synthetic turf should look and feel just like real grass, not like the matted fake grass of two decades ago. Make sure that your installer is using only top-of-the-line artificial grass products for all of their installations. When you receive a quote from the company, they should bring a range of samples for you to see and feel. They should be able to answer any questions about the difference between the products, the benefits of each, and recommend which one would be most suitable for your needs. Look into the reputation of their product manufacturer and verify that they’re a well-known and established brand. The product itself is the single most important aspect of your installation, so it’s crucial that you choose an installer that only deals in market-leading product installations.


Good Warranty

No matter how impeccable your installation is, manufacturing errors occur every once in a while. A trustworthy installer will always offer you a warranty on your artificial grass product, ranging from 8 to 15 years depending on the product used. These warranties will guarantee your satisfaction with the product and give you peace of mind. If an installer doesn’t have a warranty clearly listed on their website, or if they’re not familiar with their warranty when directly asked, keep looking for other installers who will be better suited to your project.

Fair Quotes

Even if you think you’ve found the perfect installer the first time, it’s always recommended to get several estimates. This is a general rule with any home renovation project, and artificial grass installation is no exception. Make sure that your preferred installer provides you with a fair quote; they shouldn’t rip you off with high prices, but you should also be wary of numbers that are significantly lower than competitors’. Astronomical prices rarely equate to far superior installation quality, but extremely low prices often result in low-quality installations that don’t last.

If you’re ready to transform your San Dimas home into the envy of the neighborhood with high-quality artificial grass installation, look no further than Duran Lawn Creations.

The Best Time of Year to Install Artificial Grass

As the summer starts to come to an end and the rush of outdoor activities has slowed, San Dimas residents begin to consider how artificial grass could improve their outdoor fun next summer. Synthetic grass landscaping offers you the ultimate in convenience, with an evergreen appearance that requires virtually no maintenance. But when is the most convenient time to install it? Here are some factors you should take into account when considering the best time of year to install your artificial grass lawn. 

Prepare for Summer…Before Summer

When people imagine enjoying their beautiful new artificial grass lawn or custom putting green, they’re most often imagining that it’s summertime. The warmer months are by far the most popular time for enjoying the outdoors, so it’s often when homeowners consider synthetic turf. However, it’s ideal to schedule your artificial grass installation before the summertime. For one thing, spring and summer are by far the busiest months for installers because of that exact reason. Scheduling your installation for fall or winter will guarantee a wider availability and help you secure your first pick for an artificial grass installer. It also ensures that your yard will be fully installed and ready for use in time for summer, so you can spend the full season enjoying your turf rather than watching it being installed. 

Beat the Wet Weather

Fall and winter are great times for installations, but you should still try to avoid the rainy season. Luckily, the rainy season isn’t long in San Dimas. Although artificial grass can be installed during the colder months with no issue, heavy rain can interfere with getting the dirt out of the installation site, thereby putting the project on hold. If you want to ensure an efficient and fully productive installation, try to schedule your appointment for a drier time of year such as early fall.

Whenever’s Most Convenient for You

Ultimately, you should schedule your artificial grass installation for whatever time is most convenient for you. Think about holidays, graduations, birthdays, summer activities, and any other times of year that will call for more use of your yard space than usual. Choose a time of year that is generally clear of holidays and birthdays for you, that way you don’t have to worry about renovation projects while you’re in the middle of enjoying summer fun or planning family parties. Whether it’s spring, summer, winter, or fall, schedule your installation for whichever season suits you best. 

Artificial grass is the perfect landscaping solution for any time of year. If you’re ready to transform your San Dimas home with synthetic turf, give Duran Lawn Creations a call today. Our design and installation experts will help you create the backyard paradise of your dreams and make it a reality with no hassle.

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.

If you want to beat the heat this summer, and all year long, consider TigerCool artificial grass for your Azusa home. We at Duran Lawn Creations would be happy to assist you with all of your design and installation needs. Give us a call today at (888) 862-8470 to speak to a team member about your available options and receive a free installation estimate.

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. 

If you want your lawn to be beautiful and practical all year long with virtually no maintenance, make the switch to artificial grass today. We have dozens of products and accessories that are guaranteed to suit your needs. Work with our design team to create your dream backyard today.

Summer Backyard Activities with Artificial Grass

No time of year allows you utilize your backyard space to its fullest more than summer. When the weather starts to heat up, residents throughout Azusa start spending more and more time enjoying the outdoors, from playing sports to lounging around and indulging in summer barbecues. With artificial grass, you can make the most of all that summer has to offer thanks to the numerous advantages it has over natural grass lawns. Here are some exciting backyard activities that you can enjoy with artificial grass this summer.

Water Activities

Along with the summer heat comes sprinklers, water guns, Slip ‘N Slides, water balloons, and any kind of water activity that will allow you to cool off while having fun. With natural grass, these water games can damage your lawn, flooding it and causing damp or matted surfaces. Excess water can cause broken glass blades, dead patches, and even the growth of mold or mildew, so water activities can’t be as carefree as you’d like them to be. However, with synthetic grass, an ultra-efficient drainage system allows you to cool off and have fun to your heart’s content without worrying about a waterlogged lawn. Synthetic turf drains at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard, which means that you’ll never have to worry about mud-stained clothes or wet grass blades stuck to you when you’re enjoying water-themed games outdoors. Your lawn will feel completely dry within the hour, and the efficient drainage combined with effective antimicrobial infill product will prevent mold and mildew from growing on the surface of your artificial grass. 

Custom Putting Greens

Another way that many Azusa residents like spending their lazy summer afternoons is enjoying a round of golf. With custom artificial grass putting greens from Duran Lawn Creations, you can spend the summer practicing your short game from the comfort of your own home. Whether you want some family mini-golf time or professional golf training, a custom putting green in your backyard is a great way to amplify your summer with synthetic turf. Our custom putting greens are fully tailored to your specifications and can accommodate any size, shape, or terrain that your home has available. If you have a small, narrow side yard or an awkwardly-shaped area, a customized artificial grass putting green can be the perfect solution. We can also incorporate contours, bunkers, and tiers for a realistic effect that will have you ready for the PGA in no time.

In-Ground Trampolining

If the long summer days still haven’t tired your kids out, a backyard trampoline will be sure to do so. Artificial grass makes it easier than ever to install one in your home, with many of the deterrents of in-ground trampoline installation eliminated thanks to turf’s durability and drainage. In-ground trampolines require proper drainage in order to prevent rusting and deterioration over time. While this is a costly and time-consuming endeavor with natural grass lawns, artificial grass comes with a highly efficient drainage system that perfectly accommodates an in-ground trampoline’s needs. The durability of synthetic grass also makes it ideal for trampolines, as there’s no risk of killing the surrounding grass due to endless running and tumbles off the trampoline. The in-ground trampoline installation process itself can also normally cause the surrounding grass to become brown and patchy due to high foot traffic and inadequate water supply, but artificial grass will remain evergreen and lush all year long despite these conditions. With synthetic turf, you can incorporate safe and fun activities for your kids while keeping your backyard looking beautiful.

Backyard Jungle Gyms

If you want to create a playground in your own backyard, do it with synthetic grass. IPEMA-certified artificial grass play systems are specially created to protect children during playtime, so they can have as much fun as possible while you have peace of mind. Our artificial grass play area turf is padded to absorb shock and prevent injury from falls, so your kids are better protected than with natural grass lawns underfoot. Synthetic turf’s non-abrasive surfaces also protect from scrapes and scratches, while the polyethylene material and anti-microbial infill mean that you don’t have to worry about mud, grass stains, or splinters when your little ones finally come inside for the evening. Play area turf’s durability ensures that it will stay green and lush even with kids running and roughhousing for hours on end. Let your kids enjoy all that Azusa summers have to offer by installing an artificial grass play area in your backyard today.

If you want to make your Azusa home the perfect summer escape, consider artificial grass installation for your backyard today. Keep your family, your friends, and yourself entertained all summer long with fun summer activities at home.

Benefits of Artificial Grass for Schools

Schools in the Azusa area all have the health, safety, and happiness of their students at heart. They aim to create an environment where children can enjoy their time and build meaningful relationships in classrooms and on the playground. With artificial grass, students can run, jump, and play to their heart’s content without the need to worry about mud, bugs, scrapes, or splinters. Synthetic turf is ideal for playground systems, landscaping, and athletic fields thanks to its durability and safety standards. School districts can save time and money on grass maintenance while keeping their kids safe and protected by switching to artificial grass from Duran Lawn Creations.

Synthetic Grass Play Systems

The eco-friendly foam padding installed under every artificial grass play area can protect children against impact injuries and falls from over 10 feet high. It meets or exceeds all American Society for Testing and Materials standards, and it’s proven to be one of the safest and most durable landscaping surfaces on the market for children. Our play area installations can be complemented with anti-microbial Envirofill infill, which prevents bacteria growth to keep your kids healthy and safe. Durafill is completely non-toxic and non-absorbent, and it’s more sanitary than silica. Choosing Durafill for your school’s artificial grass install will help keep germs at bay – a crucial necessity on school playgrounds.

Athletic Artificial Turf Fields

Whether you’re a small elementary school or a Division 1 high school, we will tailor our installation to perfectly meet your institution’s needs.

Never worry about daily watering, weekly mowing, and regular re-sodding again. With artificial grass sports fields, you can let your students trample the field for hours every day without concern for its appearance. During the driest summers, your field will remain healthy and evergreen. During the wettest winters, muddy fields will never be a hazard. Have a sports field that’s ready for play all year long with artificial grass installation from Duran Lawn Creations. 

With ever-shrinking school budgets in California, it’s crucial to cut costs wherever you can. One easy way to save is with artificial grass for your Azusa school. With no need to water, mow, fertilize, or otherwise maintain your fields and playgrounds, schools can save thousands of dollars every year by switching to synthetic turf. Synthetic turf is non-toxic, lead-free, safe, and durable, making it the perfect solution for schools and their students.

Why Artificial Grass is Great for the Family

If your household is filled with kids and pets that are itching to get outside and play, artificial grass is a perfect solution for your San Dimas home. With synthetic turf, you can allow your family to get out and play without worrying about the appearance of your lawn. Keep your yard pet and kid friendly while taking advantage of synthetic turf’s minimal maintenance requirements by installing turf in your home today.

Synthetic Turf is Safe (and Fun) for the Kids

If you have young children, consider installing a play area system in your backyard. It provides hours of fun for your children and peace of mind for you. Our play area synthetic turf is padded to absorb shock and has been proven to prevent injury from falls. Its non-abrasive surface protects from scrapes and scratches, and the synthetic polyethylene material means that there’ll be no mud or grass stains awaiting you when your kids finally come inside. Our play area artificial grass is highly durable and built to withstand high amounts of foot traffic, including kids’ roughhousing, so it won’t break or mat like natural grass would. It will also never turn brown, no matter how many hours your little ones spend running across it. Let them tire themselves out all summer long without stress by installing an artificial grass play area system in your San Dimas home.

Artificial Grass is Perfect for Pets

If your family includes furry, four-legged members, artificial grass is the perfect solution for them as well. Synthetic turf installation doesn’t involve dirt and can’t be dug up like natural grass, so no more muddy paws or holes in the yard. It is also extremely easy to clean when your pet relieves themselves in the yard. All of our synthetic turf options include a highly efficient drainage system that makes it easy to hose down and rinse away all pet waste. There are also anti-microbial infill and odor eliminator products available to sanitize your home’s artificial grass further. Keep your lawn beautiful, your pets happy, and your life stress-free with pet turf for your home.

The Ideal Poolside Paradise

If your family loves to take advantage of the pool in the summer, artificial grass pool decking is a practical and aesthetically pleasing option that will lower your yard maintenance all year long. Its efficient drainage means that it can get wet without having water pool on the surface of the grass. This will not only keep your lawn dry and safer to walk on, but it will also prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Synthetic turf never needs to be mowed, edged, or fertilized to maintain its appearance, so you can eliminate the landscaping required with natural grass. This means that you won’t have grass blades, gasoline-powered tools, or toxic fertilizer chemicals in and around your pool, which keeps the pool water safer and cleaner for your family.

Artificial grass is an excellent solution for San Dimas families looking for a way to maximize fun while minimizing lawn damage and landscaping work. It’s a practical solution for families with kids and pets that want to protect their little ones while simultaneously protecting the beauty of their home’s exterior.

Synthetic Turf Care & Maintenance Tips

One significant advantage of artificial grass over natural grass is that there’s no required lawn maintenance. Artificial grass will stay even in height and keep its color without the need for mowing, weeding, fertilizing, daily watering, and all of the other chores associated with real grass. Because of this, San Dimas residents have been installing synthetic turf lawns in record numbers. However, once installed, one inquiry we receive often is how to care for a synthetic grass lawn properly. Here are some basic care and maintenance tips for your home’s artificial grass.

Clearing Debris

It’s recommended that you pick up or use a leaf blower to clear larger pieces of debris such as leaves, branches, and other objects that may land in your yard. These items may become matted into your artificial grass if left there over time. Removing debris from your lawn will help the artificial grass maintain a clean, groomed look and lower the amount of brushing you’ll need to do to preserve its lifespan.


Areas with high foot traffic may become matted over time depending on the durability and pile height of the artificial grass product you choose. Brushing your synthetic turf every month or so when you notice matting can help restore your lawn’s pristine appearance. Brushing against the grain of the artificial grass, or cross brushing, will fluff up the fibers and maintain the upright position of each blade. Always use a brush with synthetic bristles, as brushes with metal or wire bristles can damage your synthetic turf fibers. Extend your lawn’s life and cut down on future maintenance by brushing your artificial grass as needed in accordance with foot traffic levels. 


It’s necessary for your artificial grass to be rinsed down every so often to clean it of dust and debris. Rain is a cheap and effective synthetic turf cleaner if you live in an area that receives a significant amount of rainfall. However, if you live in an area where it doesn’t rain much – such as San Dimas – a quick hose down will work just as well to clear away dust. This should be done as often as possible, ideally once per week, but does not need to be as extensive as watering a natural grass lawn. A quick once-over with the garden hose will be sufficient to clear your artificial grass of dust and other particles for the week.

Spot Cleaning

In addition to regular maintenance, spot cleaning can sometimes be necessary if you spill or otherwise damage your synthetic turf. In case of spills or accidents, try to clean the area as quickly as you can to avoid it leaving a stain. Blot any liquids that have spilled and scoop up any solids. Rinse the affected areas with a mix of water and mild household detergent to clean the area adequately. If you have a more stubborn stain that withstands the soap, use a 3% solution of ammonia mixed with water. Finish by thoroughly rinsing the turf with clean water. For sticky substances such as tree sap or gum, freeze the area using dry ice or aerosol refrigerants. This makes them easy to scrape off of the artificial grass without damaging the turf.

All investments need care to maintenance in order to preserve their value. Artificial grass generally lasts about 20-25 years depending on use, but this can be extended further with diligent care and maintenance. Although your artificial grass will always remain evenly green, regular rinsing and brushing will keep your synthetic blades fluffy and upright, increasing its aesthetic value.
