Financing Your Synthetic Grass Installation

With an evergreen appearance, little maintenance, and reduced water bills, artificial grass lawns are a worthwhile investment for your home that will increase your property value and save you money long-term. However, they do have a higher initial cost than real grass. If you’re considering artificial grass for your Roseville home, you may be concerned about cost and how to finance your installation. Luckily, there are flexible financing options available for Roseville homeowners so that you can pay for your artificial grass installation over time and with less stress. Renovation financing provider Renovate America offers two different home improvement financing options for homeowners: HERO and Benji.


The Home Energy Renovation Opportunity (HERO) program is a program that offers homeowners access to financing for energy efficient, water conserving, and renewable energy home improvements such as synthetic grass installation. Approvals are primarily based on the equity in your home and your debt payment history rather than your credit score, and repayment is taken through your property tax bill rather than through traditional monthly payments. With the HERO program, there’s no money down, and the interest may even be tax deductible. The program offers competitive, fixed interest rates and flexible term lengths to lessen your stress over repayment. You also get the final say, with all HERO contractors agreeing not to be paid until you sign off that the project was completed to your satisfaction. With 100% financing up to the approved amount, the HERO program is America’s largest PACE provider and our most popular option for synthetic grass financing.  


Benji is a home improvement financing option that can be used to finance nearly any home upgrade, including synthetic grass installation. You can only apply for Benji through a contractor who is part of the Renovate America network, such as Artificial Turf by Fenix. Applications are approved on the basis of your credit score, and all repayments are made through traditional monthly payments. Benji can be used to cover projects ranging from $2,000 to $50,000, and there’s no money down. Benji financing offers flexible terms lengths and competitive fixed interest rates. Like with HERO, all contractors are paid directly, and they are not paid until you sign off on the satisfactory completion of the project. If Benji sounds like the right financing option for you, contact Artificial Turf by Fenix for more information.

What’s the Difference?

There are two primary differences between the HERO and Benji programs: how you get approved and how you pay back the financing. In order to get approved for HERO, several factors are considered including your home equity, household income, debt obligations, and the items you want to finance. With Benji, eligibility is primarily based on your credit score. When it comes time to pay back the financing, HERO is secured by your home, and the financing is repaid through your property taxes. Benji, however, is paid back in traditional monthly payments.

If you’re considering artificial grass for your Roseville home or business but you’re worried about the cost of installation, enquire about our HERO and Benji financing options. You can check your eligibility and find out more information directly from Renovate America’s website, or call us at (877) 673-8873. We’d be happy to give you a free, no-obligation quote for your project and walk you through our financial plans to help you find the right one for you.


5 Fun Backyard Activities You Can Create with Artificial Grass

As Folsom heats up heading into spring and summer, residents are taking advantage of the benefits of artificial turf installation and getting their yards ready for summer fun. Whether it’s a water fight with the kids or bocce ball with your friends, artificial grass landscaping allows you to make the most of your space and customize it to become your personal playground. Here are five fun backyard activities that you can do this summer with artificial turf.

#1. Mini golf & putting

A popular landscaping design in artificial turf installation is the inclusion of a personal putting green. All of our putting green turf products are professional-grade and are made to replicate an authentic golfing experience, so it’s the perfect backyard activity for some family fun and professional training alike. These personal courses are great for small, awkwardly shaped areas of your yard such as a small strip of grass along the side of your house. They are also fully customizable to any size, shape, terrain, and skill level. All of our turf products are lead-free and non-toxic, so your course is completely safe (and durable) for kids and pets. All putting green installations include aluminum cups, customizable flags, and fringe to make your putting green as cohesive and realistic as possible. Just bring your putter and some golf balls!

#2. Bocce ball

Bocce ball is one of the world’s oldest sports; it originated as early as 5200 BC in Ancient Egypt and was popularized in its present-day form in Italy in the 1800s. Although the game wasn’t well known in America until the 1980s, there are over 25 million American bocce enthusiasts today. With the corresponding popularity increase in artificial turf installation, creating a bocce ball court in your backyard has never been easier. Although bocce is most typically played on sand or concrete, artificial grass is an increasingly popular option since it offers a clean and leveled surface to play on. It also consists of a durable underlayer of concrete. This means that, unlike other options, the synthetic grass will remain level and won’t break after repeated use. If you and your family are looking for a fun, low-maintenance backyard activity to fill your summer evening, consider installing a bocce ball court in your home through Artificial Turf by Fenix.

#3. Slip ‘n’ slide & water fights

There’s no better way for you to cool off in the blistering Sacramento summer heat than with water games. Running through the sprinklers, unrolling the Slip ‘n’ Slide, or loading up the water guns – any water game that can keep your family happy and cool everyone off is always a good option. However, excessive water use on your natural grass can leave it waterlogged and muddy. The water slide can also damage your grass and leave wet grass blades clinging to you, your pets, your kids, and – subsequently – the inside of your home. With artificial turf, water fights can now be worry-free. Synthetic grass won’t break or get muddy, so there are no more messes to clean up after the fun’s been had. Turf’s ultra-efficient drainage system also guarantees that your lawn won’t flood. Our synthetic turf products have a drainage rate of at least 30 inches of water per hour per square yard, so your lawn will become dry again within a matter of minutes. This also helps avoid allergens that are caused by pooled water, such as mold and mildew.

#4. Lawn chess

If you want to put a physical spin on a mental game, consider incorporating lawn chess into your backyard to stimulate your family. By alternating turf with a stone of your choice, you can create a larger-than-life chess board in your backyard. The board is easy to maintain, with no need to mow your lawn to keep the two-tone squares neat. The versatile board can be used for either chess or checkers, and it makes for an exciting landscaping feature even when not in use.

#5. Jungle gym system

If you have young children, installing a play area system is an option that creates fun for them and peace of mind for you. Synthetic grass play area turf is padded to absorb shock and prevent injury from falls, and its non-abrasive surface protects from scrapes and scratches. The polyethylene material means that there’ll be no more mud, grass stains, or splinters awaiting you when your kids run inside for dinner. It’s also extremely durable, so it’s able to withstand any amount of roughhousing without breaking or matting like natural grass. Allow your kids to run around to their heart’s desire while you fully relax, worry-free, with an artificial turf play area installation.

With artificial grass’s versatility and virtually endless landscaping possibilities, you can go out and make the most of the Folsom summer with your backyard. Keep yourself, your friends, and your family constantly entertained all year with a wide range of activities you can create from an artificial turf installation. With no need for watering or mowing, switching to synthetic grass will save you significant time and money, all while offering you a range of exciting backyard adventures. If you’re ready to transform your home and reach your yard’s full potential, call Artificial Turf by Fenix at (877) 673-8873. Our team of expert designers and installers will be happy to work with you and help you build the backyard of your dreams.


How to Prevent Spring Allergies with Synthetic Grass

Every spring, one in six Americans suffer from grass allergies – also known as hay fever – caused by elevated pollen counts. With the warmer weather comes sneezing, itchy eyes, skin rashes, and numerous antihistamines. However, did you know that there’s a long-term solution for hay fever? By installing artificial turf in your Sacramento home, you’ll reduce the amount of pollen around you and your family, thereby reducing your grass allergy symptoms.


Unlike real grass, synthetic grass is hypoallergenic. Most pollen comes from the grass itself, but artificial turf does not produce pollen, and therefore the quantity around your home is lessened. It also doesn’t hold onto pollen particles as natural grass does. Its short and uniform pile height allows it to trap pollen and dust particles at a much more reduced rate than natural grass.

Low Maintenance

Artificial turf’s lack of necessary maintenance is not only convenient, but it also reduces allergies in the spring and summer. When your natural lawn is mowed, the lawnmower churns up grass and pollen, causing it to become airborne and aggravate your allergies. Artificial grass doesn’t grow and doesn’t require any mowing, thereby minimizing your exposure to any allergens trapped in the blades of your grass.

Water can also reduce pollen counts. A quick hose down of your yard can help prevent allergies, as artificial turf’s efficient drainage system sweeps away allergens along with the water. The turf’s porous backing allows water to drain quickly, which not only eliminates pollen from your yard but also makes sure bacteria doesn’t grow on the surface of your grass.

Good for Your Pets

It’s not just your family that suffers from grass allergies – your four-legged friends do too! Cats and dogs can suffer from pollen allergies and experience rashes or respiratory problems after exploring outside. Pollens and chemicals trapped in a natural grass lawn can cause symptoms such as tearing eyes, swollen eyes or nose, patches of hair loss, inflamed areas of skin, clogged sinuses, and violent scratching. By installing artificial grass in your yard, you can prevent these unpleasant symptoms for your pets as well as your family. In addition to saving your pet from allergies, pet-friendly turf also withstands pet urine and can be easily cleaned. It’s durable and won’t have any brown patches or mud holes from digging.

If you’re one of the 50 million Americans that suffer from hay fever symptoms every spring, it may be time to consider switching to artificial grass and landscaping. Say goodbye to hay fever’s sneezing, itching, and rashes for good by calling Artificial Turf by Fenix today for a free estimate.

Artificial Turf for your Bocce Ball Entertainment

If you like to host events or parties in your backyard and are looking for a fun, unique game for your guests to play, then you should consider bocce ball! Bocce ball is one of the world’s oldest sports, and it’s a perfect game for everybody.

What is Bocce Ball?

Bocce ball is a simple game that has been around since the days of Ancient Rome. The game became very popular in Italy and is also known as Italian lawn bowling. Bocce ball can be played in teams or individually for people of all ages and skill levels.

Why Artificial Grass for Bocce Ball?

Bocce ball can be played on any leveled open area, and courts are usually made of natural grass, sand, or concrete. However, artificial turf is growing in popularity for bocce ball courts because of its durability, and ability to endure the foot traffic that occurs from the game. Unlike other court options, synthetic turf will remain level, clean, and won’t break after repeated use.

Artificial grass is also great for play because it minimizes the impact of the ball and allows it to roll well. A synthetic turf bocce ball court is long lasting and also features a drainage system to prevent flooding during the Sacramento rainy season, so you can play whenever you would like!

How to Play Bocce Ball?

There are multiple ways to play bocce ball; however, the objective is always the same: throw the bocce ball as close as possible to the pallino! A pallino is a small ball that a player throws to the other side of the court to initiate the game and the target for the entirety of the game.


Bocce ball is played in two teams and there can be up to 8 players. Each team gets their own color; there are 2 colors with 4 balls per color. Players need to choose and agree upon a foul line that they may not cross when throwing the bocce ball. Typically, if a court is smaller or walled, players will stand outside of the frame. A player throws the smallest ball, called the pallino, to the other side of the court to initiate the game.


Players determine which team will go first and the first player throws their bocce ball underhand and tries to get as close as they can to the pallino. The next team’s player will also throw their bocce ball underhand, trying to get closer to the pallino than the first player. Players continue to throw their bocce balls and alternate by team. The frame is complete when all the balls are thrown, and a point is awarded to the team with the bocce ball closest to the pallino.

Play continues by resetting the game and starting a new frame – scoring is the same as the first frame. The person who threw the ball closest to the pallino in the previous frame is the one who will go first in the next frame. The game is over when a team reaches 12 points.

5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Synthetic Grass

If you’re considering installing synthetic grass for your home or business, congratulations! The luscious, realistic and durable features of artificial grass are stunning and will make your property look flawless. But, looks aren’t everything. Here are five more reasons why artificial grass is worth the investment.

Versatile and Environmentally Friendly

Artificial grass is versatile to fit any sort of purpose or need, whether that may be residential or commercial, landscape or putting greens, playground or pet turf. All products are non-toxic and environmentally friendly, making it the perfect choice to install. Artificial grass is great for any location and is completely customizable to your installation.

Clean and Allergen-Free

Synthetic grass is a safe and hypoallergenic landscape alternative that will relieve allergy symptoms and eliminate mud and other contaminants, guaranteed. As opposed to concrete or natural grass, artificial grass has a drainage system, preventing puddles of water and mud from rain, pool water, or spillage.

Durable Everlasting Greenery

Synthetic grass comes in a large variety of sizes and color to fit all types of installations. With the occasional rinse and groom, the product you choose to install will always be the color and size that was originally installed. Like natural grass, turf fibers stand upright and will require a lot of activity to flatten the turf blades.

Low Maintenance and Money Saver

Installing an artificial lawn is an investment that will save you money in the long run. It requires no fertilizers, chemicals, or watering that sod would require to keep a healthy green. Depending on usage, turf may require rinsing with water or for pet turf, a spray of an organic, bio-degradable, and non-toxic freshener.

Increase Property Value

Whether your installation is commercial or residential, artificial grass will increase the curb appeal and the aesthetics of your lawn. The perfectly luscious and fluffy greenery in addition to the low-maintenance requirements make your property irresistible to potential buyers and tenants.
