Synthetic Turf Conserves Over 3 Billion Gallons of Water

While millions of people, businesses, schools and homeowners use synthetic turf for landscape and play, one of its major beneficiaries is the environment. As of 2011, the estimated total amount of synthetic turf installed in North America conserves more than three billion gallons of water, significantly reduces smog emissions, eliminates close to a billion pounds of harmful fertilizers and pesticides, and recycles more than 105 million used tires. “Synthetic turf has made a very positive impact on the environment,” said Rick Doyle, President of the Synthetic Turf Council. “The synthetic turf industry continues to innovate to enhance synthetic turf’s numerous eco-friendly benefits that empower users to reduce their carbon footprint.”

Water is one of the worlds most precious resources, and the future availability of water is in question.  That is why environmentally friendly options, such as synthetic turf, that allow businesses, homeowners, and municipalities to save water and maintain usable areas are becoming more and more popular.  Canada STI is leading the industry by offering the most advanced water friendly and environmentally friendly solutions for homes, commercial settings, and public applications.  These applications include lawns, landscaping, putting greens, tee lines, playgrounds, pet areas, bocce courts, tennis courts, croquet courts, multipurpose fields, and many more.

You are likely to see synthetic turf from Canada STI in a number of areas around your local communities.  STI’s professional installers have installed turf in numerous lawns for homes, dog parks, playgrounds, play areas, football fields, soccer fields, and a number of other areas.

You can contact Synthetic Turf International with any specific questions you may have.

What’s Trending for Turf in 2015?

Have you been hearing all the talk about synthetic turf’s newest innovative improvements? Have you seen your neighbours start to make the switch to artificial grass? Are you starting to think about putting artificial grass in your yard? We have compiled some of our most frequent questions we get asked and found out the industry trends in store for our clients this spring.

Everyone wants their lawn to look natural and inviting, accompanied by a flawless design. But what’s in store for the 2015 trends?

Olive with a Brown Thatch

You may have seen various types and brands of synthetic turf over the years, but they all are slightly different in colour too. We offer a range of colours even in the “green” array. Some of our greens are more lime and bright, while others are more on the darker side with that olive touch. Olive is on the rise for lawns and landscapes as it offers a more realistic look to the turf. The brown thatch in the turf helps make it look more realistic. It emulates dead grass to rid criticism of the turf looking “too real”.

Realistic

Synthetic turf comes in all different pile heights and face weights (essentially the thickness of the turf). When you see a lawn that looks like a putting green surface, it means the pile height is probably too short for that area. We suggest approximately 1 1/4″-2″ pile heights for the lush, natural look of grass. On top of that, you are going to want to choose a turf that has a face weight of 80-130oz/sq.yd. Depending on your budget and how full you want the lawn to look, there are a variety of options to meet everyone’s needs.

Playable

The playability of the turf has a different definition depending on who you are talking to. Although, when it comes down to it, you want to be able to use it! A family would want the turf to be safe for their children to play on, and even to fall on. Our play turf system has a 12′ GMAX fall rating for the parents peace of mind. The golfer wants a pristine putting surface, and the pet lover wants a pet friendly option. We are happy to be able to design a yard specific to each clients’ request to fit in all spaces, big or small!

Synthetic Turf International Makes Significant Gains in Sustainability

ISO Certification

One of Synthetic Turf International’s greatest strengths is that we manufacture our turf, allowing for the highest levels of quality from production through installation while generating a significantly positive impact on the environment.

Over the past few years, our research has pioneered environmentally sound, responsible turf that saves resources for the length of its life. We have received ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications in light of our continued commitment and strong focus on quality, environmental stewardship and safety. We are proud to receive these certifications in our efforts as a manufacturer to help create a greener world in places where natural grass can’t easily grow or be maintained.

As part of this initiative, STI has made significant gains in sustainability initiatives through recycling and waste reduction practices. Major accomplishments recently included:

 

  • Recycling 155,221 pounds of material in 2012 consisting of cardboard, wood pallets, raw materials (yarn and primary backing), finished goods, plastics, paper and more.
  • The company uses over 99% of all raw materials, and all remaining raw materials are recycled.
  • 100% of the finished goods/products are recyclable.
  • Achieving a reduction in waste in excess of 75% from when first engaging in the ISO certifications.
