This Spring, Synthetic Turf Kelowna started working closely with many landscape contractors in the Okanagan. STI Kelowna offers monthly seminars to train local contractors on best practices and product knowledge to help them get started with the turf world.
This project came to us from one of the contractors in Kelowna this Spring. The clients wanted to fill their courtyard with two putting greens, so we worked with the landscape architect to create this dream space for the clients.

The six-hole putting area came together very nicely. The clients now have a beautiful and relaxing outdoor space to enjoy for years to come!
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!

Our new showroom in Kelowna, BC features synthetic turf installations throughout, and the employees there love bringing their dogs to work because they have such a good time playing on the artificial 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 Canada had a busy winter building the new showroom and warehouse in Western Canada. The front of the space showcases forty of our most popular artificial turf for applications ranging from lawn and landscape, putting greens, cross fit to playground turf. We have large outdoor areas in the front of the showroom to give our clients an idea of what their space will look like completed with various synthetic turfs.
Through the doors is the back warehouse which is used to store popular styles and prepare shipments for Western Canada.

Synthetic Turf is most commonly known as a lawn product. People are starting to hear more about it and learn that it’s also safe for their pets to play on, and that they can even build a putting green with it! Did you know that we also have some very durable products that can be used for a variety of applications?
This Spring, Synthetic Turf Kelowna transformed the front of a house for their client to have more usable space in their driveway. This area was filled with loose rock and made a mess of the area anytime someone drove on it. The client still wanted to be able to drive on the area, but wanted it to look clean and nice for the curb appeal of visitors. STI Kelowna guided the clients in their turf decision, which ended with them choosing our Tour Shot turf to create a secondary driveway, which also doubles as a play area when not parked on. Kids will love the green play space, and adults will love the ease of parking their recreational vehicles off to the side, and out of the way.

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!

Thank you to all of our distributors for joining us for another great conference! This year, our team met up in Cancun, Mexico for our annual distributor conference.

It was great to reconnect with so many, and see a few fresh faces excited to start their turf journey! A big thank you to everyone at Synthetic Turf International for all their hard work putting this week together for us!

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. 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.
- Marble. The marble trend applies to bathroom countertops, kitchen islands, and interior décor items such as candles.
- Wooden features. Wood is in, everything from various colours of hardwood flooring, to statement wood beams throughout the home.
- 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.
- 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.

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.
We 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.
This 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.

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.

Laying the turf down, getting the spacing right for installation
Our Kelowna team has had the opportunity to install numerous specialty sport applications, including Gaga Pits and Bocce Turf. Their most recent specialty sport application was this tennis court in Kelowna, BC. It is a half court, so slightly smaller than most people are used to playing on, but it is residential use only. The family has a large open acreage and already had putting greens and other fun activities available, so this was the next fun project for them.
