Back to School Landscaping with Artificial Grass

While students throughout Texas are out of school for the summer, many districts are performing maintenance and renovations on their schools in order to enhance their children’s experience and performance in school come September. One way in which many schools are improving their students’ time outdoors is through the installation of artificial grass. Artificial grass is ideal for playgrounds, landscaping, athletic fields and more. It allows students to stay safe, happy, and healthy while saving districts time and money on regular upkeep.

Synthetic Turf Play Areas

One of the biggest concerns that schools have regarding their students is safety. DFW Turf Solutions understands this, which is why we recommend artificial grass for school play areas specifically. Artificial grass is specially engineered to be safe for kids and protect them from scrapes and falls. All of our play area synthetic turf products are IPEMA-certified and meet or exceed all standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials. We install all playground synthetic turf with eco-friendly foam padding that maintains GMax scores, so you can rest assured that our products are some of the safest and most durable landscaping options available for kids. Our playground installations also feature antimicrobial infill which prevents bacteria growth and can keep students protected from harmful substances that would otherwise be spread with natural grass. This infill also further cushions the artificial grass and keeps grass blades upright, aiding in injury protection and student comfort. With a soft touch and natural appearance, artificial grass will keep your school playgrounds looking beautiful year-round while keeping germs at bay and keeping your kids healthy and safe every day.

Artificial Grass Sports Fields

DFW Turf’s artificial grass products are also perfect for school athletic fields due to their extremely high durability. School fields can often become brown and patchy during the summer heat, and winter storms inevitably result in flooded or muddy fields that make playing impossible. With synthetic turf installation, your school can leave all of those worries behind. Artificial grass is evergreen, extremely durable, and specially designed to withstand high amounts of foot traffic. It can endure hours of students’ running without ever becoming brown, patchy, or dead. It also includes an ultra-efficient drainage system that drains water at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard, so the rainy season is never a problem. You’ll never experience any mud or flooded grass surfaces with synthetic turf, so your students can run and play to their heart’s content, regardless of the weather. Whether you’re a small elementary school or a Division 1 high school with full-size stadiums, DFW Turf can accommodate any project’s needs. We offer premium installs of artificial grass products with a range of pile heights and face weights, so we can choose a synthetic turf option that fully meets your requirements. Achieve a perfectly maintained and functional athletic field all year long with artificial grass installation from DFW Turf.

With superior aesthetics, performance, and safety features to real grass, synthetic turf is the natural choice for Texas schools. With no need for daily watering or regular maintenance, school districts can save thousands of dollars each year, allowing them to put more money toward the improvement of each child’s education.

The Benefits of TigerCool for Summer

There are few places in the US with more excruciating summers than Texas. Residents know that when the full force of the summer heat descends, you’ll do anything you can to stay as cool as possible. However, you’ll still want to go outside and enjoy the fun that summer has to offer. With artificial grass for your home, you can create a backyard oasis where you can have fun and make the most of the sunshine without overheating. With our bestselling products’ innovative temperature-control technology, TigerCool, you’ll never have to worry about the summer heat ruining your outdoor fun again.

Several of the bestselling TigerTurf products here at DFW Turf Solutions feature the latest innovations available for artificial grass, including first-of-its-kind TigerCool temperature-control technology. In early variations of artificial grass, temperatures on the grass’ surface could often reach more than 175 degrees. Not only is this uncomfortable for you to walk on, but it also poses a health hazard for your small children and pets. However, after years of extensive research and development, TigerTurf has revolutionized the synthetic turf industry with temperature-control technology built into their bestselling artificial grass products. 

TigerCool utilizes heat-reflective color pigments and UV inhibitors that are able to reduce surface temperatures by up to 15 percent. Normally, grass absorbs infrared sunlight and transforms it into heat. Dark colors, like those used in standard artificial grass blades, absorb the most infrared light, causing a high level of heat buildup and raising surface temperatures dramatically. However, with heat-reflective dark color pigments such as those used in TigerCool products, infrared light is reflected rather than absorbed. This results in a lower heat buildup than normal and, therefore, a lower overall temperature. In a series of tests conducted by TigerTurf, it was indicated that TigerCool technology was able to successfully reduce artificial grass temperatures by 15 percent, or up to 10 degrees. TigerCool makes summer outdoor time safer and more comfortable for you and your family, so you can enjoy your backyard for as long as you desire.

TigerCool is used throughout two of our bestselling TigerTurf product lines – the Diamond series and the Marquee series. Both of these artificial grass product lines cover a wide variety of project needs, ranging from light to heavy foot traffic. Pile heights range from 1.75 inches to 1.875 inches, and face weights vary from 60 ounces to 75 ounces. All of our products are lead-free, non-toxic, kid-friendly, and pet-friendly, so you can be worry-free with artificial grass all year long.

If you want to prepare for the summer heat with TigerCool artificial grass, we at DFW Turf Solutions would be happy to assist you with all of your design and installation needs. Give us a call at (940) 365-9165 for a free consultation on your artificial grass installation today.
