This months’ featured install comes from STI Langley. They had the opportunity to work with Snap Fitness in Chilliwack, BC on their new flooring options for the facility.
STI Langley used our very popular Trainer’s Choice turf in red for this project, as well as including a custom logo in the center of the gym.
Trainer’s Choice is a great turf option for gyms, as it allows all equipment to perform properly while providing enough cushioning under the foot. This turf is available in many colours, allowing most companies the opportunity to install turf that matches the colour scheme of the space. It’s also a great choice for companies wishing to include a logo in the turf. We have the ability to water-jet cut and seam the logo into your roll of turf right at our plant for you.

The featured install this month comes from STI Kelowna. The clients were unhappy with their current yard and wanted to add usable green space for their two puppies. The space was full of loose gravel and had one section of another manufacturer’s turf, which they were unhappy with the odor, texture and continuous weeds.
Side Yard Before
The family has two large breed dogs so they were looking for a solution to make their life a bit easier while creating an aesthetically pleasing space at the same time.
Our team began by removing the other artificial turf and getting the ground ready for our brand new turf. They were debating between a few of our products so we guided them. They chose a product that was just released new for 2016, SoftLawn® Bermuda Blend, so everyone was excited to see it installed.
SoftLawn® Bermuda Blend is a polypropylene/polyethylene blend which was important for this installation. They shouldn’t have a nylon product especially when pets will be in the area, as nylon has a 16% absorption rate. This is likely what caused the odors in the yard prior. Our Bermuda Blend turf comes in our popular Field/Olive colour and stands 1 ¼” tall with 87 oz/sq.yd.
Side Yard After
The clients were just as pleased as we were with the final outcome, what a transformation! This is a great product for people with pets or who prefer the shorter pile height of turf. It looks aesthetically pleasing and makes cleaning up the yard much easier and cleaner overall.
Since completing this installation, this new synthetic turf product has been installed over 20 times across Canada. We are very excited about how great it looks installed especially.

In some parts of Canada, Spring has been warmly welcomed with blue skies, sunshine and even temperatures reaching 20! Meanwhile, other areas saw a fresh snowfall and temperatures well below freezing.
No matter which part of the country we are in, one of the most common questions we get asked is, “how will my synthetic turf hold up over the harsh Canadian winters?” The truth is, snow, hail and freezing temperatures do no damage to the artificial turf. Due to the unique way the yarn fibers are created, they can withstand the heavy snow sitting on the turf for months on end. We have installed synthetic grass lawns and sports fields as far North as Nunavut, and they see more snow and cold winter conditions than most of us could imagine. None of our projects have been affected by the conditions endured in these types of locations. It is fine to walk on the turf, let the dogs out over the winter, and even leave Mr. Snowman out there while it’s freezing.
The only tricky part of synthetic turf in these conditions is the initial installation. We strongly recommend all installations be completed in above freezing conditions to ensure the sub base won’t shift and the turf is secure. For example, in Nunavut we waited until their warmest time of year (August) to install their artificial grass to ensure it would look great year round.
These home owners choose to use their green year round!
When Spring arrives in your area, and the snow has melted, our certified installers would be happy to provide a Spring Cleaning of the turf to ensure it looks it’s best. This includes using a power broom to remove any debris that has settled over the winter months, as well as checking for any potential problem areas of the turf. Homeowners could also perform these tasks themselves using a leaf blower and giving the turf a good once over.

Synthetic turf can be used in many different ways, and in many different places. STI Toronto used our popular putting surface in place of carpet for this little golfer. The client explained their daughter was an avid golfer and wanted a putting green in their room. This was a fun project creating such a unique space for the clients.
You can see from the photos below, they used the putting surface as the main ground cover, and included a secondary product as a fringe for the surrounding space.
STI Toronto added the design detail you see below, including the real life curves in the fringe to make it feel like a true outdoor green. The possibilities are endless with Synthetic Turf, if you have an idea, we can bring it to life for you!

This fall we had a client with quite a large and spread out yard inquire about our products. They were concerned about the costs as the space was so large and irregularly shaped. We know that not all yards come in the perfect square shape as if they were made for a roll of turf, that’s why we are here! Our team can help work with you to design the space to work for what you are imagining. We can also show you a wide range of products to work within your budget.
This client chose to use one of our lower end products, which just means the product is a bit shorter standing just 1 1/4″ tall, and has 60 oz/sq.yd. As you can see from these photos, it still looks great and you can’t even tell it’s synthetic! This yard looks great and had quite a transformation from the before to now.
