Rooftop Patio Synthetic Turf Bocce Court

synthetic turf bocce

Synthetic Turf Kelowna had the opportunity to install one of Synthetic Turf International’s newly released specialty products, Bocce Pro. The project was completed earlier this Spring in Penticton to get ready for the new business’ opening schedule. The clients wanted to create a space meant for gathering where guests can mingle and enjoy the newly renovated outdoor space. They decided to go with a large Bocce Ball area, with some comfy chairs and twinkling lights to create a lounge vibe to the one end.

Bocce is taking off in the Okanagan, the popular game is being added to bars, patios, and parks all over. Bocce is an outdoor yard game, played in teams of 2-4. Eight balls and one small marker are used, and the object of the game is to roll your team’s ball nearest to the marker. The team closest to it after rolling all 4 balls wins.

Poolside Synthetic Turf

One of Synthetic Turf International’s new products for 2016 is called SoftLawn Paspalum Pro. Only a handful of our clients have chosen this product, but the more we see of it- the more we love it! This is truly a great turf, it is one of our highest end products standing 1 3/4″ tall and holding 120 oz/sq.yd. This turf is made with a yarn called polyethylene, which feels very soft to touch but stands up great against wear due to the unique was it is designed.

In the photo above, you can see the ground has been prepared and is ready for the roll of turf to be laid out. Once the installers have determined the best way to lay the turf, they will chalk it out and cut the piece to fit flawlessly around the pool.

Voila! This is the outcome once they complete the cuts and have secured the turf. SoftLawn Paspalum Pro looks lush and realistic, and now that a few people have seen it installed this year, we think it is going to be a best seller!

Synthetic Turf Putting Greens

This week’s featured install comes from Synthetic Turf Kelowna. Their latest project was completed in a fairly new lake front community in West Kelowna, BC. These homeowners were looking for a bit of greenery to add some life to their yard at their beautiful new home . They decided to go with our new for 2016, SoftLawn Select Fescue, with a small 8’x4′ putting green on one side. The Select Fescue is a great product for what it is, once installed it looks extremely similar to one of our higher end products, Autumn Fescue.

These clients are excited to have a lush, green space to enjoy year round. The added bonus is that they don’t need to buy a lawnmower now! Saturdays will be spent sun tanning lakeside, and practicing their putt! The entire SoftLawn line is even pet approved, so when friends bring their dog over there are no worries.

Front Yard Gets Synthetic Turf Makeover

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.

Unique Synthetic Turf Putting Green Installation

artificial turf

This week we are showcasing a unique installation from Kelowna, BC. The client is an avid golfer and found a way to fit this putting green in around the pool. There is a ledge surrounding the pool which we laid synthetic turf on and created two smaller putting greens in each corner.

Here you can see both greens up close (above and below images). We also installed a paver stone walkway to access the putting greens. STI Kelowna used the popular NP45 putting surface for the green, and SoftLawn Bermuda Blend for the surrounding areas. Bermuda Blend is one of our newly released products for 2016, and it has been an extremely popular choice across the board. People with pets love it for it’s shorter pile height while still providing a realistic lawn look. It also works well around putting greens as seen in this application, or on it’s own as a lawn product. We have seen it used in some major Canadian cities on meridians and sidewalks as well. Bermuda Blend is becoming a go-to choice for the all around product for various applications after just a few short months.

Okanagan Hockey Group Training Facility

Red Turf

This month we are featuring one of our unique projects from this winter, where we got to have a little fun!

Synthetic Turf for Athletic Facilities

The Okanagan Hockey Group provides training to hockey athletes from over 30 countries. Their Hockey Academy has seen hundreds of NHL players attend as players or instructors over the years. Their Penticton, BC training facility was searching for a better flooring option for their off-ice training space. We provided them with a flooring option that also fit their company branding and colours, bright red synthetic turf.

The whole space is 1620 sq.ft and we used our most popular athletic turf for these types of spaces. Trainer’s Choice turf is an infill-free product so they don’t have to worry about sand or rubber flying out during their training. It is a short pile, dense, turf with a 5mm foam backing to provide the comfort needed under an athlete’s footing.

Red Turf

Trainer’s Choice Athletic Turf

This turf is a great addition to their training facility to ensure these athletes are training in the best possible conditions. It allows them to push the prowlers, perform Crossfit, and all types of exercises.

Back to School with Synthetic Turf

How is it that summer flies by faster and faster each year? It’s almost as if you’re talking about getting the yard ready for the annual summer bbq, then you blink and summer is nearly over! The kids are heading back to school, the weather is finally cooling off a bit, and you’re left with a dried out, unappealing space to sit outdoors each weekend.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the kids could actually have that swing set or trampoline and not worry about them falling off and hurting themselves? Or have a pet-safe space for your furry friends to run around without worrying about wrecking the lawn? What if we told you we could make these dreams a reality. Artificial lawns are growing in popularity among home owners largely due to the vast improvements in how far fake grass has come since the days of “Astroturf”. Today, you can custom design your lawn to be as full and green as you ever dreamed! Some people opt for a tint of realistic brown to give it the natural look and feel. With a variety of yarn types, we can also make it feel soft or “prickly” through the use of different yarn types. The possibilities really are endless when working with Synthetic Turf International.

Our SoftLawn EZ Play playground system just passed a series of tests last month on our most recent install in Ontario. Our specially designed system includes a 2″ foam underlay with our EZ Play turf on top. This system passed drop heights of up to 12′ -much higher than the tallest point on the play structure. This reassures that children will not suffer from concussion like injuries in the event they do fall. So what are you waiting for, give us a call today!

Featured Install: Playground Turf in Waterloo, ON

 STI Toronto just finished this beautiful facility in Waterloo, Ontario. They created a fun and safe space for children to play at a local day care.

 

playground_2

This is an example of our favourite playground application system. They used a 2″ foam underlay beneath our SoftLawn EZPlay turf. This creates a safe play surface in the chance that a child falls from the play structure. To ensure the safety of this system, the day care had a third party research firm come in to complete the GMAX (Maximum Gravitational Force of Impact) and HIC (Head Injury Criteria) tests. We are pleased to confirm that all drop tests were passed with flying colours. Not only did the tests prove the play structure height was safe to fall from, but it would be safe at additional heights also. This is great news for the day care, should they ever wish to replace or add new structures, they don’t have to worry about the height. It is definitely an added bonus as they may wish to grow the playground over the course of the artificial turf’s lifetime.

How To Make Your Driving Range Look New Year Round

STI Canada’s EZ Tee® nylon tee line surface is an innovative synthetic turf system, designed specifically for driving range tee lines. In addition to being able to hit down and through the ball, golfers can also hit from a regulation golf tee placed directly in the EZ Tee® surface. This is a stark departure from the white plastic tube that serves as a tee in other synthetic tee line surfaces. In addition to the realistic playability of EZ Tee®, club owners and equity members benefit greatly from its cost-effectiveness. EZ Tee® permits continuous use, eliminating the need to relocate and reseed driving range areas. Appropriate for tee lines and hitting mats, EZ Tee® can be installed over a natural base or concrete.
