Overview

No matter how you look at it, keeping a healthy lawn costs money and time. For example, watering your lawn at home makes up approximately 70% of your water bill each month. Fertilizers and herbicides keep the grass green but not your wallet and can be harmful to the environment.  Lawn maintenance services are convenient but certainly not cheap. If you don’t have a service then you lose your free time on the weekends, pay high fuel prices and maintain expensive lawn equipment. What is that worth?  

Consider that in any commercial application this scenario plays out and expands exponentially!  It could quite literally mean the difference between red and black at the end of the year or worse yet, bonus or no-bonus! 

Isn’t it time to cut your high water bills, lose the expenses of maintenance, and fire the lawn service? 

 It’s time for FusionTurf for your landscape.

The FusionTurf Landscape System is designed to not only fuse” ground-breaking, natural looking and feeling synthetic lawn products with your landscape and lifestyle but also to help you control all the costs associated with maintaining your lawn.

The best synthetic lawn products, the best artificial turf installers, the best vision, the best customer experience.

FusionTurf gives you the perfect green lawn you’ve always wanted and saves you time, money, and the environment.

Is synthetic lawn easy to take care of?

Relaxing and enjoying a glass of iced tea is hard work but, having the best lawn on the block was never this easy.

FusionTurf Artificial Grass for Dogs – Dogs are bound to love their new pet turf as much as regular grass, if not even more. Dogs’ paws are sensitive to hard surfaces just like us. Gravel and concrete dog runs are hard on their paws, and bare dirt is just downright messy.

FusionTurf artificial grass is designed with dogs in mind and to give you a beautiful lawn that’s sanitary and easy to clean. Artificial Grass for dogs gives your pets (whether working dogs, hunting dogs, or just your best friend) a ground surface they can play on without harmful fertilizers or pesticides that could irritate their skin. Plus, as a homeowner, you will love the mud-free lawn with the highly advanced drainage system.

Pet resorts, training facilities, doggy daycares, pet stores, veterinarian offices, dog parks, and many others can truly benefit with synthetic lawn or artificial turf for dogs at their businesses. Potential clients will see a dog lawn that is green all year. Not a worn out patched together yard. FusionTurf synthetic grass for dogs is built to handle the high flow of pet traffic and doesn’t yellow with pet urine. In fact, its anti-microbial properties prevent odors and make clean ups a snap.

What happens when a pet "goes" on synthetic lawn or artificial turf?

Thats’a great question!

When you have Pet Turf installed, it’s actually a system. Starting with the base aggregate, then the honeycomb like tile structure, and finally the fast draining turf itself, it’s all designed for fast and complete drainage.

The artificial turf itself is completed with infill. The Infill itself is hypoallergenic, non-molding, and antimicrobial.  We use a patented product manufuactured by Envirofill that is described in more detail below.

With liquid waste, it just naturally drains through the system and is absorbed by the aggregate subsurface.  Envirolfill® with Microban® takes care of all the odors.

Solid waste is handled similarly to what you’re used to now.  Just use a pooper scooper or shovel to remove the waste and spray with a water hose.

It’s just that simple. No fuss, no muss, and the pets love it!

Why is FusionTURF and Envirofill® good for Pets?

  • When FusionTurf meets Envirofill® its Microban® technology reduces ammonia odor caused by the breakdown of urine by 99!
  • When your pet “naturally” processes nitrogenous compounds, one of the by-products is ammonia.
  • Ammonia as a compound is harmful to animals, both human and pets so the body converts it to urea which is expelled as urine.
  • When the urea/urine is expelled on the the synthetic turf infill, naturally-occurring microbes begging to break it down.
  • The result of this breakdown is two molecules of ammonia and one of carbon dioxide.
  • Envirofill® infill is infused with Microban® Antimicrobial Technology to help reduce the creation of ammonia.
Can I use synthetic lawn or artificial turf on my roof top and deck?

Yes!

For residential home owners in single family homes, condos, townhomes, and/or shared living spaces, roof tops and decks are sometimes an afterthought.

In commercial applications, the roof is often times considered a purely functional component of the structure that protects the building and it’s customers/tenents from the elements.

At FusionTurf however, we see all these spaces as opportunities to help our customers transform previously unused outdoor space into a place where people can gather, mingle, and grow.

Consider the following applications.

  • Expanding an eatery to include a roof top deck would add floor space to increase revenue.
  • Imagine this roof top carpeted with super durable FusionROOF EX with a custom die-cut of your local school mascot!
  • How about creating a rehab walking space on the unused portion of a hospital roof?
  • For Condo HOAs converting the additional outdoor space already provided by your roof just makes sense. Making it a social gathering spot, adding artificial plants (that we can provide also), bistro lights, and seating makes for wonderful summer evenings. This solution is super low maintenance and increases the resale value of each and every unit.

FusionTURF synthetic lawn and artificial turf products for roof top and outdoor deck applications are soft, safe, and comfortable to walk on. The deep pile of our products make walking barefoot on them a joy. Good for the environment, good for the people that use it everyday, our synthetic turf options are second to none. When installed on a roof top or deck, our artificial lawns create a bit of magic, tying together the outdoor space with an unexpected lushness and luxury. Many of our customers say it produces a “very relaxing, stress free, and healing environment” commonly associated with green spaces. We agree but we’re probably a bit biased.

Have us come out and take a look.  We’ll provide you a very thorough quote and numerous samples to choose from.

Does synthetic turf save me money and time?

Yes and yes.  Admittedly, the cost of turf initially is pretty significant but over a few years it more than pays for itself.

On average, the typical household in America uses over two-thirds of their monthly water consumption on the lawn.  Replacing those lawns with synthetic lawn could save about 56,000 gallons of water annually per household!  With water conservation becoming such a major concern in this country, many city water authorities are offering tax rebates for every square foot of natural sod you replace with artificial grass.

Not only does installing artificial turf save you money on your water bill though, if you are employing a landscaping service it saves you that expense as well.  The American Consumers Society says that for the average American that totals about $2,880 per year!  For those that do the yard work themselves, it saves them 48 days during their lifetime that they could be doing something else.  

And it just gets better…. or worse (depending on how you look at it).

Did you know that since lawn mowers do not have emission controls, that the average car has to drive 93 miles to emit the same amount of air pollution that is produced by ONE lawn mower mowing ONE American Yard?

Did you know that on an annual basis it takes almost 12 million of barrels of CRUDE OIL to produce the over 70 million pounds of fertilizer and herbicides used for American Lawns?  Much of which ends up in our oceans and waterways due to urban runoff.

Lastly, FusionTurf uses a significant amount of post-consumer recycled materials in the manufacture of its products so by installing our surfaces you’re not only reducing carbon emission pollution and saving water, you are repurposing post consumer plastic waste.  That’s a very good thing for our planet.

What's with the Limited Lifetime Warranty?

FusionTurf is proud to offer our Limited Lifetime Residential Warranty. This warranty is TRANSFERABLE to the next owner of your home within the first EIGHT YEARS and covers almost everything from discoloration to separation.
