Professional Orange County Golf Turf and Putting Greens

SYNLawn® Orange County putting green turf was engineered with help from pro golf coach and ex-NASA engineer Dave Pelz to replicate traditional grass green performance. It offers a one-inch-thick practice surface that permits the use of a real golf tee. With it, you can choose from various turf options for your fairway, fringe, collar, and more along with obstacles to enhance the challenge.

Our professionally installed T-Strike enables a complete swing without grabbing the club head. This can help improve your performance and lower your scores in the short game. Our putting greens are also equipped with effective drains in each cup to prevent water backfill and mold. Best of all, only SYNLawn GreenMaster® certified technicians are authorized to install our golf greens, which helps ensure the realism of your practice with SYNLawn OC golf greens.

Natural Putting Greens

  • Inconsistent surfacing poses challenges for optimal performance
  • Maintenance is essential to ensure playability
  • No guarantee of precision installation
  • Golf clubs can cause holes, shedding, and dead spots, leading to increased maintenance costs
  • Proper drainage is lacking without SuperDrain+, making year-round use difficult
  • Travel is required with no assurance of availability
  • Highlighting the difficulties associated with unreliable surfacing

The Safest Playgrounds are Provided by SYNLawn®

At SYNLawn Orange County, our team offers exceptional playground turf systems. Some of the benefits of our systems include:

  • Utilizing recyclable and eco-friendly materials, including sugar cane and soybean oil
  • Incorporating StatBlock™ carbon-based anti-static technology to minimize static buildup and shock
  • Sanitized® antimicrobial effectively eliminates bacteria on play surfaces, reducing the risk of infections

Alternative Playground Surfaces

Playground surfacing alternatives like pea gravel, cement, rubber, sand, and traditional sod can be abrasive, causing injuries. They also lack a padded sub-base to cushion falls, most likely increasing the risk of injuries. In addition, natural grass can serve as a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, fungi, and infections, and during playtime in hotter months, these surfaces may become uncomfortable and cause burns to feet.

Keep Your Pets Cleaner and Your Landscape More Intact

At SYNLawn Orange County, our artificial dog and pet grass offers many advantages over traditional turf:

  • Our pet turf is free from harsh chemicals, heavy metals, and pesticides
  • Orange County pet turf systems utilize Sanitized® antimicrobial to effectively eliminate bacteria and manage pet odors
  • HeatBlock™ protects pets’ paws, preventing potential burns during outdoor activities
  • EnviroLoc+™ technology helps ensure outstanding durability, discouraging dogs from digging and maintaining the integrity of the turf
  • The system ensures optimal drainage, significantly reducing ammonia associated with pet waste
  • Effectively helps deter fleas and ticks, creating a safer environment for your pets

Conventional Grass for Pet Areas

Choosing traditional grass for pet areas can be a bad idea. Shedding may occur because of vigorous play or roughhousing. In addition, dogs tend to dig through sod, leading to potential damage to the lawn that requires repairs. During heavy rain, flooding can also transform the area into muddy terrain, potentially causing mud to be tracked indoors. Lastly, regular grass provides a habitat for unwanted pests that may find a home in your dog’s fur, especially when you do not use strong pesticides, which can also be unsafe for pets.
