The water shortages will continue to affect everyone across the west as populations grow. Helping to save water while installing a beautiful artificial lawn or backyard golf putting green that does not further negatively impact the environment is nothing short of amazing.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 1, 2008
IntelliTurf, Inc. is the first synthetic turf company to our knowledge to make a commitment to 100% recyclable turf for our golf greens, lawn systems and play areas. Our surfaces no longer have to be a detriment to the environment.
For years our products have eliminated the need for irrigation saving untold amounts of water. Synthetic Turf maintenance compared to natural grass also greatly reduces emissions. These have been great benefits of our products. In keeping with that tradition, we now can further reduce our environmental impact by recycling the entire backyard golf green or play area.
After 10 years in business and thousands of square feet installed, what changed? The backing of the turf
Almost all synthetic turf produced today for lawns or recreation has a backing produced from urethane. After 8 to 10 years of use, the only place urethane backed turf goes is the landfill. Utilizing fibers that have been around for decades made from Olefin, IntelliTurf products do not have to find the landfill at the end of their life cycle.
The entire package: From the fibers to the adhesive and now the backing, IntelliTurf only installs golf greens and lawns that can be recycled for thousands of products from diapers to car batteries to the construction of highways. By only installing greens and lawns that can be recycled, our surfaces will make an even greater impact toward a green society.
IntelliTurf distributes it surfaces through our golf business franchises in the United States and looks to expand internationally in 2008. IntelliTurf works with qualified individuals as well as businesses to deliver the highest quality backyard putting greens, synthetic lawns, playgrounds, and other recreational landscaping.
Throughout our years in business customers, companies and colleagues have expressed interest in developing their own synthetic turf business. While installing our artificial turf for backyard putting greens or playgrounds, other contractors or neighbors on the job site would approach us about the products and the business. Now with the innovation of recyclable turf, our business is more attractive than ever. Lars Skylling who owns IntelliTurf of Southern Utah knows how desperate the west is for potable water: "The water shortages will continue to affect everyone across the west as populations grow. Helping to save water while installing a beautiful artificial lawn or backyard golf putting green that does not further negatively impact the environment is nothing short of amazing."
