WHY ARTIFICIAL TURF?
A: With proper installation, a synthetic grass lawn will give you an attractive and useful space for your home for years. Synthetic Turf is the best solution for saving water. California is in the worst drought in history and is facing water restrictions. Maintaining a watered lawn is no longer an option. Artificial lawns require little to no water to maintain. They are simple to maintain. Artificial grass, synthetic turf, or fake lawn, whatever you call it, is the best way to reduce the use of water, immediately and permanently.
IS THE WARRANTY GOOD?
A: OmegaTurf has the Strongest Warranty in the Business. We include a 15 year, non-prorated warranty on both the turf product AND the installation. Most companies offer 8, 10 or 15 years on the product and only 1 year on the installation. There are companies out there who promise 25 years – but they have only existed a year or two. We have been here a decade, so as they say “consider the source”. These factors make OmegaTurf the industry’s best protection for your long-term satisfaction. With OmegaTurf, you have no risk of living with a low quality product or poor installation.
OmegaTurf has been a leader in the synthetic grass landscaping industry since 2006, installing the highest quality products, backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. We are fully-licensed, bonded and insured to protect you and your investment.
WILL THE LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF THE SUN HARM THE GRASS?
A: The artificial grass blades have been carefully engineered to resist fading and damage. UV Stabilization is one of the key achievements of the industry since the “olden days” of turf, when it was lime green and ¼ inch tall.
IS ARTIFICIAL LAWN “PET FRIENDLY?”
A: Yes. Cleaning up after your pets is easier than with natural grass and pet urine will no longer leave discolored patches on your lawn. Dogs don’t get the same sensation from digging in synthetic yards as they do with sod, so most dogs will refrain from tearing up your new OmegaTurf grass. OmegaTurf is the perfect Artificial Grass for Dogs and Pets.
WHAT ABOUT DRAINAGE?
A: Our turf drains very quickly – faster than it can rain in fact. Most turf varieties drain – what matters more is what they are draining INTO: So the proper base and contour of the ground as well as tying into existing drains become important. We pay very careful attention to drainage. We improve the drainage of every property we work on as a rule.
WHAT IS THE GRASS MADE OF?
A: OmegaTurf is made from 100% polyolefins. These are stable oil-based products used in manufacturing generally. Our main blades are Polyethylene which is the same plastic a milk jug is made of. Our products do not contain lead-based dyes so there is no lead-leaching. Furthermore we do not use crumb rubber infill on our projects so crumb rubber leaching and off-gassing is also eliminated.
HAS OMEGATURF UNDERGONE TESTING?
A: All of our products meet or exceed State of California and US and safety standards. The products are lead and heavy metal free, and have been rigorously tested.
CAN OMEGATURF ADD VALUE TO MY HOME OR BUSINESS?
A: Yes in can. In this new area of water conservation, any potential buyer will see water-hogging “real” grass as a negative, and a lush, water-free OmegaTurf lawn as a positive. This is another point often missed by buyers – how the turf is installed matters. A proper installation looks real and adds value. A poor installation and/or cheap turf looks artificial and doesn’t add (and may subtract) value.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
A: OmegaTurf is priced by the square foot and installation costs vary based on each specific project. While the initial cost of installing a new synthetic grass lawn may be more expensive than simply re-sodding your yard, a sod lawn has recurring costs (watering, fertilizer, gas for mowing, aeration, seeding, a gardening/landscaping service, etc.), while the artificial lawn requires little to no ongoing maintenance.
HOW DO I PAY FOR THE GRASS?
A: OmegaTurf offers a variety of financing plans to fit your budget. We offer low interest, low payment programs. We are also a HERO and Ygrene registered Contractor, with programs established to make your project more affordable. Check out heroprogram.com or ygreneworks.com for more information about these innovative programs.
DOES OMEGATURF GET WARMER THAN NATURAL GRASS?
A: Yes. On average, the grass can be 5-10 degrees warmer than natural grass on a hot day. However, OmegaTurf is now offering a revolutionary infill system called Turf Chiller™ which greatly reduces the temperature of the turf. Ask our representatives about it during your free estimate.
WHAT YPE OF INFILL MATERIAL DO WE USE?
A: OmegaTurf uses many different types of infill depending upon the installation. Sand infill is common and used on most installations we do. For pet yards we offer Envirofill™ which is a sealed ceramic bead that contains Microban™. For yards in hot inland climates and that get played on a lot, we offer Turf Chiller™.
ARE THERE CHEMICALS OR METALS IN OUR PUTTING GREEN INFILL?
A: No, our infills are lead and heavy metal free and do not have the potentially harmful off-gassing issues associated with crumb rubber infill. Black rubber infill, when it gets hot, makes an unpleasant odor and the dust given off by the rubber fill can potentially be harmful to the respiratory system.
HOW DO I REMOVE DEBRIS FROM MY OMEGATURF LAWN?
A :The best part about a synthetic grass yard is the fact that it requires almost no maintenance. A leaf blower and a simple garden hose should take care of any debris you may want to remove from your lawn.
IS THE TURF FLAMMABLE?
A: No. While burns from cigarettes or coals from the grill will melt the fibers in the spot where they fall, our artificial grass is not flammable. The melted spots, should any appear, can simply be clipped away.
