Artificial Turf for Pets on the Rise

pet turf

As synthetic turf grows in popularity throughout Canada, we are noticing more and more people come to us requesting the turf for their fur best friend. It’s no surprise as turf can make life with a four-legged friend much cleaner, and simpler. Our entire SoftLawn line is safe for animals and made without nylon yarns. Nylon is the reason you hear complaints about odour, it has a 6% retention factor which is not ideal when dealing with animals. By installing a synthetic turf dog run, or redoing the whole backyard, you never have to deal with Fido’s muddy paws running through your house again!

Bermuda Blend – Synthetic Turf

Bermuda Blend, one of our new for 2016 products, was a hit across the country! In it’s first year it became the most popular product for residential projects. It’s a bit shorter than some of our other lawn products which makes clean up easy and it always looks freshly cut!

Synthetic Turf Kelowna was busy this past winter as they prepared to open the Okanagan’s largest synthetic turf showroom! The new facility has a gorgeous front showroom, office space for the Western Canada staff, and a 4,000 sq.ft warehouse to store our most popular turfs.

On April 15th the local radio stations were on site for a live on location day joining STI for the official Grand Opening! It was a very exciting and busy day filled with new customers stopping by to enjoy the one-day sale, and return customers visiting us at our new location to see how far we’ve grown! People enjoyed putting on our newly installed front putting green and seeing the full sample wall of options to choose from. Thank you so much to all of our friends, families and clients for supporting Synthetic Turf Kelowna as we grow this year even more!

5 Home Trends to Watch for 2017

synthetic turf

When you’re in the middle of a big home renovation or new home build, it can feel quite overwhelming. We know that you have your hands full, that’s why our team did the research for you. We scoured our sources and came up with the top 5 home design trends to watch for 2017!

subway tiles

  1. Subway Tiles. We know this isn’t new, but it is oh so in. From your kitchen backsplash, to bathroom showers, these tiles can transform a room themselves with their simplicity. The versatility and affordability helped bring this trend to the top of our list for 2017.
  2. Marble. The marble trend applies to bathroom countertops, kitchen islands, and interior décor items such as candles.
  3. Wooden features. Wood is in, everything from various colours of hardwood flooring, to statement wood beams throughout the home.
  4. Smart home features. Our technology is becoming more and more a part of our everyday lives, and our homes are adapting to this lifestyle. Consider adding a charging station where you spend the most time, or using an app to control the lights and alarm system all at once.
  5. Environmentally friendly components. This is where xeriscaping has become a huge trend, with more and more landscape designers looking for Synthetic Turf supplier/installers for this year’s home builds and renovations.

Whether you’re building your home from the ground up, or renovating room by room, we hope this list helps in making some of the decisions. Simple, neutral designs will look great for decades to come and increase the value of your home.

A Synthetic Turf Makeover

Canada Synthetic Turf specializes in designing a space that works just for you. We have over 100 products available to meet almost any criteria our clients have. While this sounds great to have so many products, it can also be overwhelming for someone to be presented with so many options. That’s why we listen to what our client’s needs are during the initial consult, and when we come for the on site quote we bring our top options for them.

synthetic turfWe take into account the layout of the space, the measurements, nearby colours we want to contrast, and how realistic the client is going for. There is a time and a place for each of our styles of synthetic turf, and we work with our client to determine the best match for them. A city meridian calls for a short, dense, more economical product that can be used for 25 straight kilometres and look good in every neighbourhood. Meanwhile, a small front yard that rarely gets stepped on can utilize a tall, lush, green lawn product, perhaps surrounded by flower beds for a low maintenance and visually appealing curb appeal.

synthetic turf backyardThis client in the photos above and below, had a large and widely spread out yard surrounding the front, sides and back of the house. It wouldn’t be feasible for them to use a high end, super lush product for this project, so they went with our Winter Rye Lite turf. This product is more economical for the size and scope, while still having the lush and inviting appearance we are after.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

happy new years

Synthetic Turf International of Canada wishes to thank all of our clients, suppliers and team of distributors for our best year yet! We had so many great opportunities this year to work with new products on unique projects. A few of the highlights from 2016 include providing the Toronto Blue Jays their turf for the Fan Fest all summer, developing golf target green logos for driving range facilities, and working with large companies on future projects. It has been exciting to watch our distributor network grow even more this year. The installations we have seen have all looked impeccable and truly represent the hard work this team has put into their businesses.

We appreciate every one of our distributors for their hard work this year. We would also like to thank all of our clients, residential and commercially, for choosing to work with us. We appreciate your support over the years as you are who keep us going and allow us to continue growing our business! We wish you all a safe and happy holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Synthetic Turf International of Canada!

Synthetic Lawn Transformation

synthetic turf backyard

We know that it can be difficult to imagine what your space is going to look like when Synthetic Turf Canada is finished with it. When your backyard isn’t a usable space, or is completely overgrown, it’s hard to picture anything but what you’ve grown used to seeing. When our team comes in for the initial quote, we try to help you envision the transformation through a few methods. The team will bring small samples of each style to get a feel for them on site, then we are able to draft up an AutoCAD design to see what our proposed design would look like.

We can also show the clients some great before and after photos in various products to see real life examples as well. The photos here are some good examples from Synthetic Turf Calgary. You can see above there wasn’t much usable space to enjoy the backyard, and below you see the transformation afterwards. The client now has a big yard to enjoy for family gatherings and the dogs love having a spot to run around.

Poolside Synthetic Turf

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!

Here the lawn is pictured from up above. The corner looks sharp now and the pool will stay so much cleaner with no dirt and grass being dragged in.

Synthetic Turf and Autumn Installations

synthetic turf putting green

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.

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.
