AmeriTurf’s Synthetic Grass Brightens SoCal Yards
Here’s a before-after look at a Southern California home where we recently completed an installation of AmeriTurf synthetic turf in the back yard. As the state of California is announcing $500 fines for people who overwater their lawns, many residents may be thinking the drought means the end of their lush, green back yards.
But it doesn’t have to! You can do your part to help California get through this epic drought, reduce your water bill and STILL have a beautiful, lush, green lawn. And, you never have to sweat bullets pushing a lawnmower in the August and September heat!
AmeriTurf’s modern synthetic grass is permeable, so it meets the requirements of most government-sponsored turf replacement programs. It’s not your father’s Astroturf, either: Modern synthetic turf looks and feels just like live grass. It’s pet-friendly and kid-friendly, too.

Our Synthetic Turf Is a Hit on the Playground
Artificial grass is a great option for schools looking to save water and reduce costs while enhancing children’s safety and enjoyment of their time outside the classroom. AmeriTurf Systems is experienced at providing turf for elementary school play fields and play areas. Our turf provides a terrific combination of safety, beauty and cost efficiency.
Here’s a look at a recent installation of AmeriTurf grass at Leona Cox Elementary School in Southern California. AmeriTurf installed our state-of-the-art turf in the play area. It provides a soft surface around and beneath the swings, slides and climbing apparatus.
AmeriTurf Systems’ state-of-the-art turf meets government safety requirements for playgrounds. Unlike other play area surfaces, it adds a natural look and feel to the play area.
Our turf also stands up to the repetitive use and heavy traffic of a playground. It can handle whatever punishment the kids can dish out!

Customer Chooses Pet-Friendly Turf in Second Home
It always puts a bounce in our step when a customer loves their AmeriTurf synthetic grass so much, they come back for more. That’s what happened with Jackie Langlois of Valencia, Calif.
We had previously installed synthetic turf at Jackie’s home, and with two dogs, it made cleanup a breeze. When Jackie — and the dogs — moved into a new home, she contacted us to do another installation of AmeriTurf synthetic grass.
AmeriTurf synthetic turf is extremely pet-friendly. It’s porous, so liquid doesn’t get trapped on the surface. And, the turf is installed with a special under-layer that prevents odors and bacteria from building up.
Our turf is also up to the challenge of high traffic, whether from pets or people!
Here’s a shot of Jackie’s beautiful new back yard with AmeriTurf grass, which will reduce her water bill and help her comply with the new drought-related water use restrictions that are being applied throughout California. Bring on the pooches!

Below is a copy of a press release issued July 24 by AmeriTurf:
Homeowners who love the idea of getting government rebates to replace their turf — but don’t love the idea of completely giving up their lawns — have an option that qualifies for the rebates without losing the lush look and feel of real grass: Synthetic turf from Santa Clarita Valley-based AmeriTurf Systems.
“A lot of homeowners would love to redesign their landscapes to save water, but there’s something special about the look and feel of grass,” says Tim Hollinger, President of AmeriTurf Systems. “Our newest synthetic blends are closer than ever to the real thing, in appearance and feel. And, our permeable synthetic turf qualifies for most government incentive programs.”
As an example, Hollinger cited the new turf replacement incentive program offered by the Castaic Lake Water Agency, which has received coverage in the Santa Clarita Valley media. Under the program, funded by the state of California, homeowners can get a $2-per-square-foot reimbursement for projects in which turf is replaced with landscaping that consumes less water.
“In the CLWA’s program, a percentage of the new landscaping needs to be plant material, with an emphasis of course on native and drought-tolerant vegetation,” Hollinger says. “But permeable non-plant surfaces, including mulch and synthetic turf, can also be part of the mix. That enables homeowners to keep a bit of lawn in their landscape, while saving water and offsetting a significant portion of the expense.”

UCLA completes its new state of the art batting and training facility with Ameriturf’s new S&C Reaction fiber synthetic turf system.
All work on the new training center was completed in less than 2-months time and is by far state-of-the-art in terms of materials used & facility versatility. The new facility spans over 10,500’ and 23’ high. The Jack & Rhodine Gifford Hitting Facility is a one of a kind practice and training center that is like no other. Utilizing a unique retractable netting systems by West Coast Netting, coupled with Ameriturf’s exclusive synthetic grass fiber system, has put UCLA’s training & batting facility leagues above anything available in the U.S.
As UCLA marches down the road for an NCAA title, there’s no doubt this new facility is a great weapon in their training arsenal. Ameriturf’s unique fiber and infill system is perfect for creating that infield bounce that you don’t get from traditional synthetic grass & rubber systems.
Typical rubber and rubber-sand combinations fields tend to “kill” the ball bounce as it hits the synthetic turf thus slowing a players ability to predict ball trajectory. With the Ameriturf infill and fiber system the baseball rebounds and has a true “Reaction” that is identical to a natural baseball field in perfect condition… not to fast & not to slow.
Ameriturf’s synthetic grass system is designed like no other with a unique blend of fibers that mimic natural grass by standing straight up & rebound perfectly. With high ounces of fiber per sq yard, and thickest fibers available, Ameriturf creates the winning combination of the Reaction system, and is the highest performance sport specific product available in North America.
This synthetic playground grass installation not only improves the landscape, but also helps to reduce water costs.
Ameriturf transforms this school’s playground into a safe play around for it’s students using state-of-the-art artificial grass.

With rubber costs & petroleum based products skyrocketing and a playground industry searching for a solution to the usual suspects for safety surfacing, Ameriturf Systems continues to push the safety and design envelope of playground safety surfacing.
Rosa Parks Elementary installs state of the art synthetic playground grass safety surface with impact and rebound system built in.
For years local school districts have relied on poured-in-place and crumb rubber products as the end-all for safety surfacing. Other products that displace easy such as wood-chips and sand are major maintenance issues and cannot truly be relied on.
Using proven technology from artificial grass sport fields and increasing the playground surface requirements, has allowed the use of a green, soft and inviting play surface.
Suitable for use on tot-lots, play-areas, and 5 to 12 year appropriate playgrounds.
In many rural parts of Southern California, well water is the main source of H2O for residents. In Santa Clarita and outlying canyon areas water has had to be imported from reservoirs to keep up with demand. Many residents have had to let their landscaping die as a result of major water shortages and skyrocketing water costs.
Many residents are turning to synthetic turf as a move-forward scenario and being realistic about water conservation. Much talk about native plants and rock-scapes as alternative water conservation designs have been ushered in, but for many residents, relying solely on rocks and plants that look withered don’t quite do the job.
Says Rebecca Hollinger of Agua Dulce, Calif.: “Let’s be realistic, we’ve got kids and pets that are active and need a place to play. I don’t think a rock-scape is going to accomplish that with much safety. We chose synthetic-grass for many reasons… our dogs love it and so do our kids for sports and just good old tumbling. Maybe in 10 years when the kids are older we’ll tear out the synthetic grass for rock, but I doubt it.”
For sheer aesthetics, artificial grass has improved greatly and, in many cases, close inspection is deceiving.
This multi-purpose, synthetic sports field turf is a great example of high-quality materials and professional design at an incredible cost savings.
