When you’re updating your California commercial building’s exterior, making the change to artificial grass can help you save on your water and maintenance costs.

To start, you’ll want to identify parts of your exterior that could most benefit from turf, such as shaded areas. But before you can actually start installing that turf, it’s crucial that you make sure you’re working with a company that knows, understands, and adheres to your local municipal codes.

Your municipality has guidelines for every step of building or renovating a commercial property, both inside and out. For California residents, many of these regulations relate to water usage. Installing turf is an optimal way to cut out excess water usage, and in some jurisdictions, is encouraged, particularly with new building sites.

Some ways that artificial grass helps adhere to codes in California cities include:

  • In San Diego County, commercial projects with over 500 square feet of landscaping have to undergo a review in order to verify that planned water usage is under target amounts. Because synthetic turf doesn’t require watering like sod does, you won’t have to worry about your project being held up.
  • In Santa Ana, synthetic grass cannot have a blade length under 1.5 inches. When you work with an experienced contractor, they’ll be able to customize everything from height to color to tailor your perfect greenspace.
  • The city of Anaheim requires turf infill to be sand-based or another approved material. When your commercial artificial grass project needs a particular kind of infill to stay up to code, you want to know you are working with someone reliable and knowledgeable.

A California requirement is that synthetic turf installation contractors must have a valid contractor’s license given by the Department of Consumer Affairs’ Contractors State License Board. Licensed contractors are up to date on safety and proper techniques to ensure that turf stays safe for everyone.
