Amazon Now Sells Landscape Services

Amazon.com, electronic commerce company, has expanded its services to include connecting homeowners with landscape contractors.

The site, Amazon Home Services, launched earlier this month and allows based businesses to sell their services through the website. It may be in the very near future when artificial grass installers, too, are connected to homeowners looking to save money and water on their lawn care through Amazon's new portal.

Amazon is already a seller of physical products, artificial grass being one of them, but now they're trying to make way into the services marketplace, competing with such companies like TaskRabbit, Angie's List and Uber.

For example, for roughly $120 you can have your lawn mowed by an Amazon-approved lawn maintenance contractor; and if you live in the appropriate service area, you can have your goat grazed it you so fancy. Amazon's revenue model is that it takes a percentage commission from all of the services sold through their site: 20 percent from the sale price of standard services, and 15 percent from custom services. Will Amazon become the go-to website for artificial grass installers to connect with potential clients? Perhaps.

Artificial Grass is the Lawn Surface of the Future

Immediately following Governor Jerry Brown's announcement that a 25% reduction in California's water usage is mandated, a good number of residents and homeowners in California agree that the state's approval of artificial grass is the beginning of a larger wave to come in the future. During his initial announcement, Governor Jerry Brown stated that the idea of having a nice little green grass lawn getting watered every day is a thing of the past.

The California Water Resources Control Board is scheduled to release its proposal for how they will achieve a 25% reduction in two weeks. The restrictions are to take effect on June 1, 2015. Many are now not only open to but keen on converting their lawns to artificial grass.

One homeowner in Orange County, for instance, says that she and her mother have been living in a house with a real grass lawn fo 60 years. But as they went shopping this weekend they walked by an artificial grass supply store and her mother declared that artificial grass is the yard surfacing material of the future. Both she and her mother are open to installing artificial grass if keeping their current real grass lawn becomes unsustainable.

However, she said that she and her mother are not willing to go so far as to install drought-tolerant xeriscaping like cacti, etc., in their yard, because it doesn't provide the functionality that a fake grass lawn provides as far as being a suitable surface for the kids and the whole family to play and supporting physical activities.

Artificial Turf is a Hit Among High School Baseball Teams

Artificial turf is a new hit among baseball players. One
high school team in Nevada had artificial turf installed in their baseball
field and the players and coach love it. It cost the school a quarter of a
million dollars to install the turf. This initial cost will be recouped later
on in money they save on maintenance.
The coach says that he's wanted to install
the artificial turf in the baseball field for years.
The main reason they installed the artificial turf is the
weather. During the stormy spring season, for example, the team had to spend
countless hours waiting for the field to be repaired after rainfall. Now that
they have artificial turf installed, they can be playing on the field in as
little as an hour after rainfall.
The players love it too. The shortstop says that the
artificial turf gives the field a uniform surface so that he can anticipate
where the ball is going to go and how it will bounce on the field. No more bad
hops. Also, when sliding into the base, he says it's like sliding on really
nice grass every time.
The coach expects the artificial turf field to last 12 to 14
years. ...

Artificial Turf at the 2016 Olympics in Rio

It seems that artificial turf just can't be held back these
days! The benefits for sports fields, for instance, are too great to be ignored
or suppressed. It is quickly becoming the standard sports surface material for
the most popular sports like soccer and football, but it is also gaining
traction for other sports, too. One of them is field hockey. In fact, artificial
turf will be installed on a field hockey field that will be played on during
the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
The company producing the artificial turf says that the turf
will be durable, very low maintenance, and supply a uniform surface across the
entire field, with no ruts or shifting areas, and without requiring intervals
between games for maintenance and repairs. This would have been unheard of with
natural grass.
After the Olympic Games end, the artificial turf surface will
continue to yield benefits to the local community, too. It will allure out of
town visitors playing on the field in tournaments, who will in turn spend money
at local hotels and merchants, boosting the economy. Furthermore, it will
encourage physical activity among the populace, and increase camaraderie among
people who visit to cheer on their favorite teams as spectators. ...

Crumb Rubber Controversy Reaches Washington and Toronto

The crumb rubber controversy has reached two more cities. One is in Edmonds, Washington; the other is in Toronto, Canada.

In the first town, Edmonds, officials plan to install synthetic turf in a local school. Some parents have come out against the use of the crumb rubbers and cited anecdotal evidence in the media. Officials however, point to two studies by the Synthetic Turf Council and the U.S. Department of Public Health which say respectively that in 40 years there hasn't been any connection made between synthetic turf and ill health effects and that synthetic turf does not pose elevated health risks.

And in Toronto, the Ontario Municipal Board has proposed installing synthetic turf at a Central Technical School sports field. Community members aren't convinced of crumb rubber's innocuousness, however. The Toronto Public Health plans to release the results of a study on the effects of artificial turf in the coming weeks. Canada currently doesn't regulate synthetic turf because it is classified as a consumer product. The school is also considering not using crumb rubber as an infill and simply using foam padding underneath the synthetic turf as a substitute.

The main components of crumb rubber under scrutiny are styrene and butadiene; first is a toxin and the second is carcinogenic.

School Sells Ad Space on Field Surface to Pay for Synthetic Turf

For many high schools, installing synthetic turf gives their teams a competitive edge. The synthetic turf surface allows them to practice on the field 365 days a year, no matter the weather conditions, and habituates them to playing on a surface material that is quickly becoming the standard material in high school sports. However, installing the synthetic turf in the field can be prohibitively expensive for many high schools.

A high school in Belleville, IL, has taken a novel approach to raising the necessary funds to pay for their new synthetic turf field. The high school has sold ad space on the surface of the field itself to local companies. The field currently has 20 ads displayed in panels in the synthetic turf itself, including a local Chick-Fil-A. Additional funding for the synthetic turf field came from clubs and donations.

The ad panels are currently sold for five-year periods, and when the companies want to remove the ads, all the high school has to do is cut out the turf with the ad display on it and replace it with a synthetic turf that matches the color of the rest of the field, or replace it with a new ad-paneled synthetic turf.

It's a proven effective option of raising money to pay for synthetic turf fields that you may want to propose at your next school board meeting.
