Lethbridge Artificial Turf Backyard Transformation

synthetic turf backyard

Spring is in the air for some of our distributors around Canada! We are happy to see some cities coming to life after a very long winter across the board. This was a great example of a before and after from STI Lethbridge on their first install of the year. The backyard looks like a whole new space after the artificial turf was installed.

SoftLawn Paspalum Pro is one of our most lush looking SoftLawn turfs. It is 2″ tall with 126oz of product per square yard. To see a complete list of our lawn and landscape options, please click here for our product list. Our team of distributors would be happy to show you samples and help guide you to the best turf fit for you!

Transform Building for Rent

We have had some inquiries by people who have a seasonal business looking to capitalize on their slow season. Owners who have a building sitting empty for consecutive months are laying indoor synthetic turf to create a rentable space for the community. We have seen people create a space for sports practices, like a mini soccer field open to the public to rent or for off-season athletic training for personal trainers who don’t want to train outdoors in the cold. We have also seen people convert their space into a place for corporate functions or weddings. A covered space with the look and feel of the outdoors does very well in the rental market. Corporate functions, birthday parties, and community events have kept these spaces booked during the businesses off season.

Entertainment

There has been a growing trend in North America towards golf related activities in the entertainment industry. Businesses like Top Golf are doing extremely well in creating a fun environment similar to going bowling back in the day. They create a bar vibe, with DJs playing music, food and beverage for purchase, and teams competing against each other for the best score.

Indoor Mini Putt Course

Arcades and children’s entertainment buildings often include a mini putt course indoors to keep the business going in the winter. The businesses we have worked with often include an outdoor course, and then another version indoors for when the weather doesn’t permit play outdoors. The options are unlimited with our coloured turf and ability to work with any design and space.

Flooring for Play Areas

Daycare facilities are moving towards only using synthetic turf as the fall height ratings and durability are unmatched. Our EZ Play system is designed specifically for these types of facilities with play structures and keep kids safety at the top of mind.

Trade shows and convention displays

Synthetic turf has become the go to flooring option for many vendors at their exhibits. The variety of the product line provides many options when choosing a style and appearance of the booth. On top of variety, it is also a cost effective way to add a certain uniqueness to your display!

Synthetic Turf for Events

athletic synthetic turf

Have you been thinking about using artificial turf for your event? You’re not alone. Event turf has been growing in popularity for personal events, corporate events, and general commercial use steadily over recent years. Consumers are becoming more aware of the wide variety of options, and this makes it easier to utilize the product in many scenarios.

Set the Perfect Scene

Event planners put in uncountable hours to ensure their event goes off without a hitch. Planning months or even years in advance presents some challenges. Arguably one of the most difficult to plan around, would be environmental. Wedding venues are turning to synthetic turf to ensure no matter the weather conditions leading up to the day, they can promise their couples a perfectly manicured lawn as a backdrop to the wedding. Event rental companies are also more inclined to work with these venues as their rentals are returned clean and in much better condition than if it were a rainy day and furniture was left in the mud.

Portable Green Space

Synthetic turf is also a great option for scenarios where the turf may need to be moved after some time, or events that move around the country. The turf is a great, lightweight option to provide green floor space in an instant. Just roll it out and watch the green space grow! We find consumers love this option for trade shows and large outdoor conferences as the synthetic turf is ADA compliant (wheelchairs can roll) and it is easy to clean and maintain with high traffic areas.

Sponsorship Opportunities

With the custom logo and waterjet abilities of our manufacturing plant, the possibilities are truly endless of what we can provide for corporate events. We often have large media events ‘sell’ the advertising space in the synthetic turf for companies to insert their logo right into the turf. These are some of the recent logos we have provided.

Artificial turf for personal events such as weddings, photo booths, and reunions is becoming a top choice to achieve the lush backyard lawn appearance many strive towards. The turf makes it feel much more inviting and luxurious.

The corporate use of synthetic turf is something that is growing in popularity as people learn how far synthetic turf has come since ‘Astroturf’ days. It really does look realistic and there are so many colours, heights, and other specifications to make it exactly what you are looking for. Most recently we find businesses using artificial turf for commercials and in film and tv shows. Adding some turf to the set allows for the show to display a real neighbourhood home, at any time of year with a beautiful lawn.

Many municipalities are also including synthetic lawn in their plan for community markets and festivals due to its easy maintenance and cleaning abilities. Having a pet friendly space where people can go hang out is a great addition to any event.

Synthetic Turf International Year in Review

synthetic turf daycare

Synthetic Turf International of Canada enjoyed a busy year filled with growth and expansion in 2017. We filled the demand for distributors in cities where we previously had none, opened a Western Canada Showroom and Warehouse, and completed numerous impressive synthetic turf projects. We want to give a huge thank you to all of our customers, residential, commercial and resellers, for another great year!

Project Highlights

While we installed many impressive projects this year, a few really stood out for us.

We were incredibly excited to provide synthetic turf soccer field to the city of Yellowknife this summer. The kids were so excited to have a new play space and we love hearing stories from our contacts there about how much use it is getting.

Another favourite was a local daycare in the Okanagan. They transformed both campuses into full synthetic turf playground areas.

Our most unique athletic project of the year was a multi sports field. You can see the birds eye view of it below. For a size reference, those little ‘sticks’ are 15’ long! This install was a huge improvement for the city of Lloydminster.

The most unique residential project of the year would probably be a backyard installation surrounding a trampoline. They built the trampoline into the ground, and surrounded the space in synthetic turf to ensure a soft landing even if bounced too far.

Synthetic Turf Flooring Options for Gyms, CrossFit Facilities and Athletic Facilities

crossfit synthetic turf

We at Synthetic Turf Canada understand that not all fitness facilities are the same. Each sport and activity have different footing needs, and that’s why we design synthetic turf specifically for each type of sport. Our line of athletic turf carries products with all sorts of varying specifications to ensure we cover the needs of the many sports out there.

CrossFit Synthetic Turf

We find that most CrossFit facilities choose to go with our Pro Ball Turf or Trainers Choice. These turfs are available in varying widths, colours and foam back options which allows the company to work within their specific space and needs. Often, companies will go with the option of having the manufacturer tuft in hash marks and lines along the turf. This allows the fitness facility to simply unroll their turf and it is ready to go with the lines already inserted. Another option is to include your custom logo in the turf as seen in the photo below.

Baseball Synthetic Turf

Our Baseball turf is the same construction of Pro Ball Turf, in the traditional Clay baseball colour. Our baseball infields include the batters mound, home plate, and lines running to first, second and third base. The outfield is traditionally done in Pro Ball Turf in our classic Pine colour.

Soccer Synthetic Turf

Soccer fields have a few options, but the most common option we see is our Bermuda Blend synthetic turf. It is a very durable lawn product that’s not too tall making it easier to play with the ball on the field.

Tennis Synthetic Turf

Synthetic Turf International has created Tennis Pro for use on tennis field installations. It comes in green, blue and white and is generally sold as a half court or full court set up.

Bocce Synthetic Turf

Bocce Pro is a newer product from Synthetic Turf International, recently created to meet the demands for bocce courts in North America. It is again a similar construction to Pro Ball Turf, giving the ball a nice easy path to roll down. It comes in the classic sand bocce colour to resemble a true court.

When it comes to the flooring options for your project, you need to consider what the space is going to be used for. Will it be primarily designed for lifting weights? Will there be sled pushing? Perhaps you will be splitting the space into different rooms to allow for various sport activity. Our team is available to discuss the best options for your specific type of application.

Synthetic Turf Backyard Putting Green

synthetic turf putting green

Our team of distributors love walking clients through the planning of their new space. One of the contributing factors to our client’s happiness with the end result is their involvement throughout the process. We start by assessing the client’s needs as everyone has a different definition of what they are looking for out of their synthetic turf.

Assess the Need for Synthetic Turf

We encounter families of avid golfers, pet lovers, and those ready to just be able to entertain. A putting green provides the perfect gathering space for a backyard. Adults and children alike love the chance to putt into the various holes and try new angles and tricks based on the shape of the green our team builds. It gets people excited as they take turns playing on the green and often gets the competitive side of people out too!

Create the Design Layout

If you have a rough idea of how you imagine your new space, but need some help with the details, we can help with that! Our team has experience in designing all sorts of spaces, and our customers love that we show you exactly how it will look through our SketchUp Design program. Being able to see the space laid out and how the colours compare against each other makes the decision of which quote to go ahead with much easier.

Keep the Client Informed

Open communication throughout the scheduling and installation helps keep our clients in the loop throughout the full process. When clients understand what is going on and when to expect installers on their property, the project flows much smoother and everyone is happy.

Turf Playgrounds That Always Look Gorgeous

Synthetic Grass Playgrounds – Top 5 Reasons to Have One

  1. Low Maintenance
  2. More Family Time
  3. Avoid Slivers and Other Injuries
  4. Have an Even Playing Surface
  5. No More Allergies

Artificial grass is becoming more popular, especially in arid climates like the Okanagan. Kelowna residents are deciding to save time, energy and cash by switching to grass alternatives. Playground spaces are notorious for muddy patches under the swings and high traffic burnouts that lead to messy situations and potential slips. Synthetic Turf can help you transform your backyard and provide a playground friendly landscape that will stand the test of time. Imagine all of the extra time you will have without mowing the lawn and how much extra money you will save on your irrigation bill!

Artificial Grass is Low Maintenance

Skip the back breaking dandelion weeding and pesticide use from now on (and dirty looks from the neighbours). Enjoy a safer, kid friendly environment knowing that you don’t have to apply chemical weed killers. Put the dangerous weed-wacker away and never worry about an unsightly trim. Our product looks like the real deal without all of the hassle, making it ideal for those who prefer spending more family time. Clients with decreased mobility, such as some of our grandparents, enjoy having their little ones over to play without having to spend hours preparing the yard. Synthetic Turf doesn’t fade in the sunshine and the kids can still enjoy running through the sprinkler on hot summer days without worrying about creating slippery mud spots.

Turf Makes An Entertaining Dream

Wouldn’t it be great to plan your child’s next outdoor birthday party or family BBQ without having to spend hours completing lawn maintenance in the yard? Save your knees and your back from all of that mowing, weeding and trimming while you save your wallet and the environment from excessive water use. Regardless of what time your family and friends or the kids’ play dates stop by, know that your lawn will always be looking awesome!

Sliver-Free Fun!

Many playgrounds have wood chips or bark mulch in place. These items can cause unnecessary splinters, and feel awful when kids get pieces stuck into their clothing or shoes. Eliminate the issue altogether by installing Synthetic Turf instead! Our artificial grass feels soft and has some cushion to it for those unavoidable wipe-outs. Besides, wood based playground products get soggy and compressed and even moldy, requiring replacement multiple times a year. Synthetic Turf is extremely durable and lasts for years, keeping your playground looking brand new.

Synthetic Turf Makes For An Even Playing Surface

Say goodbye to uneven divots, hidden rocks and the variety of hidden tripping hazards within your lawn space. Feel safe when the kids are playing tag and soccer. Save yourself from the time consuming task of looking for rocks and pebbles prior to mowing your lawn and finally retire your lawnmower once and for all!

Say Goodbye To Grass Allergies

Many people suffer from grass and pollen allergies. Grass seed and flower pollen become airborne (especially when disturbed) from mowing and can lead to itchy, watery red eyes and a host of respiratory issues. All of these uncomfortable allergy symptoms can disappear along with your lawn care chores. Synthetic Turf has your playground and yard options covered!
