One of the most common questions we get asked when clients are first considering making the switch to synthetic turf, is “how will it look in five years?”.
Synthetic Turf Canada has been in business in the Okanagan Valley for almost ten years now, which means showing our work from years ago is getting increasingly easier. We now have the opportunity to send potential clients to have a look at various products that have been installed for 3, 5, 9 years at our current clients homes and offices. We always find that it helps to see the product sample in your hand that they like, actually installed and sitting four years old. You can see that it has been well loved with dogs and kids playing in the yard, or yard games scattered throughout, yet the turf still looks great! It has settled and looks natural to it’s surroundings by this point, but the colour is still vibrant and the yarns stand tall.
This is a photo of a yard we visited to check in on after a few years of a newer product being installed. We are so pleased to see that this product is looking great years down the road. We read the product specifications and detail records when it is released, but there is something about seeing your work down that gives everyone a peace of mind. This yard was completed with SoftLawn Fine Fescue, which is available in the Field/Eastern colour. This is a very popular product for our higher end installations and we are excited to let local clients see that it looks great installed, even years down the road.
If you are considering making the switch to synthetic turf, give us a call and we can show you some homes that have had artificial turf down for 8 years. Contact us at [email protected] or 1-800-279-8873 to set up a free quote and learn more about the options!
This week’s featured installation comes from Synthetic Turf Kelowna.
STI Kelowna had an incredible summer filled with various types of projects. We were able to create putting greens, backyard oasis’, and indoor sporting facilities. As the weather begins to cool come autumn, the style of installation we are used to must be adjusted slightly for the conditions. The materials used for seaming rolls together must be kept indoors to ensure the right consistency for strong bonds. Our installation team has many years of experience working in various conditions to ensure our level of work is kept above our client’s expectations and meets all warranty standards.
This year in the Okanagan it seemed like September 1st came and summer disappeared overnight! Temperatures would drop as low as 3 degrees celcius overnight- something we don’t often see until late October in this region. Our team was able to make some quick changes and modifications to our schedule and plans so that our current projects received the best care possible for the conditions.
STI Kelowna is surprisingly busy for this time of year. Often we find that come fall, people are done with maintaining their yards and are already onto the indoors activities. Cooking up some pumpkin spiced lattes or finding new autumn décor becomes more important than redoing the backyard. This year though, we have such a high demand for residential projects that we have a wait list started for projects to start as soon as the ground is ready in Spring. The commercial projects are just as popular this fall with a wide range of indoor facilities inquiring for the winter. We will be busy across the Okanagan transforming many spaces you may have been in before.
Stay tuned to find out what kind of projects STI Kelowna gets up to over the Winter season. If you would like to Experience a Greener World, contact Synthetic Turf Canada at 1-800-279-8873 or [email protected]
Living in the city can have its toll on your idea of a backyard. Most homes in the downtown core of major cities like Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto don’t have more than a small square for a yard. We find that these homeowners still want to make the most of their space, and enjoy some greenery without the hassle of additional chores. Can you imagine trying to pull out a lawn mower in your city centre duplex?
These clients love to golf so a small 10′ x 15′ putting green seemed like a perfect addition to their home. They used the popular NP50 putting surface and Bluegrass Blend in the Olive colour for the fringe. These products complement each other very well so we often see them used in projects similar to this.

Front Yard Synthetic Turf Installation in Kelowna, BC
SoftLawn Select Fescue is a product that was introduced new for 2016 and has become one of our best sellers. This middle of the line artificial turf has great value as it is priced well and stands up against some of our more prestige products. Select Fescue is 1 3/4″ tall, 77 oz/sq.yd and comes in our ever popular Field/Olive colour (the dark green shown pictured below). These are some great product specs especially considering it’s price point in the market.
This client is very happy with the outcome of their new synthetic turf front yard. It looks clean, lush, and requires no work! The dark olive green looks great against their landscaping and will keep the space looking great for many years to come.
