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.”
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.
The ever-dwindling water supply here in Los Angeles is forcing residents and business owners to consider alternative landscape designs and options. Hot summer temperatures, persistent below average rainfalls, decreases in available water sources and the prohibitive cost of watering your lawn is causing homeowners, apartment owners, property management companies, cities and parks districts to switch to more easily maintained and cost effective ideas for landscaping.
Today’s artificial grass is not your grandfather’s turf. There was a time when homeowners did not want to “put fake grass in my yard”. The notion of putting in fake grass was unthinkable. With today’s beautiful selections of synthetic grass homeowners and business owners in all areas of California, including Orange, Anaheim, Beverly Hills and Pasadena, are installing synthetic turf for all kinds of different applications. The products we provide to our Los Angeles customers are lush, bug-free and low maintenance.
