Install of the Month: Artificial Turf By Fenix
February 21, 2019
Commercial Artificial Grass Being Used for Employee Recreational Areas
Many business owners want to have a comfortable and relaxing space for their employees to take breaks and hang out. Usually, a standard break room is the designated space for that. However, a commercial building in the heart of Sacramento recently installed artificial grass on the rooftop of the second-floor patio to create an outdoor rest area for their employees.
Artificial Turf by Fenix installed 2,000 square feet of Diamond Pro Fescue on the second story patio of a commercial building in Downtown Sacramento. Diamond Pro Fescue features a dual coloring of field green and olive green, which mimics the look of a natural grass landscape. With a pile height of 1.875 inches and a face weight of approximately 75 ounces, this product is great for a moderate to heavy level of traffic. All synthetic grass products from SGW are non-toxic, lead-free, and will drain at a rate of 30 inches of rain per hour per square yard.
The featured installation was located at the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) Headquarters in Downtown Sacramento. The company was looking to transform their second story patio into an area where their employees could relax from work and enjoy the outdoors, while being low-maintenance. The choice was obvious for CalPERS, since they already enjoy artificial grass landscaping around the property, and the success of their previous turf installation led them to contact their former installer, Artificial Turf by Fenix.
Because the installation was on a second story patio, the Artificial Turf by Fenix team had to meticulously haul their materials, supplies, and equipment through an elevator to get started on the project. “The synthetic lawn was paired with stonework and wood chips to create a unique landscape,” according to Adam McCowen, one of the owners of Artificial Turf by Fenix.
When it comes to synthetic grass installation for commercial buildings, companies use artificial grass products to save money on landscaping and maintenance costs without compromising the aesthetics of a natural grass lawn. When an installation is on a rooftop, turf eliminates the lawnmower factor. “There won’t be vibrations or noise caused by a lawnmower,” said McCowen. “The office will stay serene and the building won’t shake.”
Artificial Turf by Fenix specializes in synthetic turf installations and is on track to be the number one artificial grass installer and retailer in Northern and Central California. Alongside their sister-company, Fairway Artificial Turf & Supply House, they’re a full-service artificial grass company.
“Our top-notch customer service allows us to provide customers with everything they need, whether that’s an installation, product, or supplies,” Heather Buchfirer, owner of Artificial Turf by Fenix told us. Artificial Turf by Fenix is also an Authorized Service Provider with Home Depot, meaning they are part of a group of hand-selected professionals dedicated to bringing customers high-quality home improvement projects. This also sets them apart from their competitors, and every crew member has passed individual background checks.
