HAMLET, North Carolina — To stop or not to stop, that is the question when approaching this small railroading town in North Carolina.I chose wisely, and passed a few well-spent hours in quaint little Hamlet on a recent trip through southern North Carolina.The town was incorporated in 1897 at the intersection of two railroad tracks and became the headquarters for the Seaboard Air Line Railroad.Hamlet was known as "the Hub of the Seaboard" in the early 20th century because [...] Continue Reading

It's the season when some of us might feel pressure to give more than we really can afford. For some people, it's tough to find a perfect gift for a woman who loved, self sacrificed and helped you grow into a person you are today. For others, it's time to accept that it's okay not to have mother's love, all of us need the most. Our brain is remarkably complex, but the gift-giving works wonders, especially when you give a lot of thought in choosing gifts that can help people become more healthy and prosperous.


Global Syn-Turf new location conveniently located off I-5 and I-167, 17 miles outside of Seattle, Washington is fully functional now. When planning the warehouse space, Global Syn-Turf's team was keen to create a flexible environment that makes shipping and local pickup easy and expedient.

On Monday, August 29, 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown signed new Hill's Senate Bill 814, that allows water suppliers to use extreme measures to prevent waste and unreasonable use of water in California during one of the most severe droughts documented in the last century. Existing law states that a violation of water conservation program can be punished by "imprisonment in a county jail for not more than 30 days, or by a fine not exceeding $1,000, or both."


America loves green, lush lawns. Outdoor lifestyle is threatened by severe drought and a climate change. Lawns dry out. Dried earth.

The state of Califonia is currently in its fifth year of severe drought. Despite Governor Brown's declaration of a state drought emergency in 2014, Californias fell short of the mandated water conservation target.


In an effort to assist companies during historic California drought, the Southern California warehouse, located at 6319 Chalet Drive, Commerce, CA 90040, will offer extended weekend hours beginning September 12, 2015.

Northern and Southern California warehouses will be available for local pickups Monday-Friday: 6.30 am - 6.30 pm and Saturday from 7 am until 3 pm (Pacific Time.)

Our live phone assistance and order processing are also available Monday-Friday: 6.30 am - 6.30 pm and Saturdays from 7 am until 3pm (Pacific Time.) We process order 24/7.
