Synthetic Turf

Live Free, Play Clean

We've already installed 20 synthetic lawns for clients this year alone...and we're not anywhere near done! Synthetic lawns continue to be one of our highest requested packages and two of the biggest reasons have to do with those special little someone's in our lives.

You heard us right! While some clients come to us simply wanting a “no fuss” lawn solution, many clients come to us because the installation of a synthetic lawn meets needs that arise from having children or dogs.


For the Kids:

In 2012 and 2013 Stats Canada reported that, “Children and youth spend the majority of their time being sedentary. Children and youth aged 5 to 17 spent an average of 8 hours and 27 minutes, or nearly two-thirds of their waking hours, being sedentary each day.” British Columbia is a province that receives a lot of rain. This, combined with the increasingly fast paced life of young families and sedentary nature of school, leaves kids unable to get an adequate amount of exercise. The installation of a turf in the backyard allows them to go outside to play year round regardless of weather and without fear of injury.


The Dogs:

Did you know that Vancouver is home to an estimated 145,000 dogs? Many families large and small have a canine mascot that seems to be almost constantly tracking mud inside or turning the backyard into one giant mud-pit. The installation of a synthetic lawn can let pet owners live with ease as their puppies get out all of their excess energy without the dirt and damage that usually come as part and parcel of the dog experience.

Putt Like the Pros

What do Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre, golf pro Tiger Woods, actor Mark Wahlberg, and NASCAR star Kevin Harvick all have in common? They all have golf courses built into their backyard. Thanks to new technology, you no longer have to be on the same pay grade as these A-list stars to have your very own putting green in the backyard.

This month, we took a moment to talk to TBO Landscape Systems founder Rob Thibault to get the down on (getting rid of) the dirty grass in your yard!

Q: What is one thing you wish your customers knew about getting synthetic turf installed?

A: I wish customers could understand how easily we can customize turf to the size and shape of their backyard. It doesn't matter how small or "awkward shaped" your yard or porch is - give us a little time and we can transform it into a beautiful green space! I also wish they knew that they were really saying goodbye to mud and potholes. A well installed synthetic turf allows you, your pets, and kids to enjoy your backyard regardless of the weather!

Q: You recently went to Nice, France and shared with your followers some fun sightings of turf installed there. So spill the beans, do you have a favourite celebrity home or public space that you think has used turf to transform their space well?

A: I just watched a documentary on Tony Robbins. His home, located right near the ocean, had this amazing cold dunking tub and beautiful synthetic lawn!

Q: Can you share your favourite client experience where you transformed their space through the installation of synthetic turf?

A: One of my favourite installation experiences occurred just recently. An easygoing homeowner in Kitsilano had originally been considering installing a synthetic lawn. We got talking and he mentioned that he and his family had this fun annual tradition of hosting a mini golf tournament every summer at their cabin. This client's wife won every time. By the end of our discussion he'd decided to install a putting green instead of a synthetic lawn so he could get in some extra practice during the year to give his wife a run for her money at the next golf tournament! We even added a few lights in the trees as accents to this new green so he could get in the occasional late night practice or two!

TURF: The Solution to Chafer Beetles

Chafer beetles are no small problem. Chances are, if you have a lawn, you've either experienced their destructive presence first hand—or have heard about it from your neighbours.

The European Chafer Beetle is considered an invasive pest, as its larvae feed on grass roots. Not only do their feeding habits damage the lawn, but wildlife such as birds, racoons, and skunks compound the damage by tearing up your grass to eat the larvae! 

Some folks have found results with applying nematodes or insecticides. However, these control methods are not always practical for the average owner.

We recommend Bella Turf, a synthetic product that has proven to be a no-maintenance, allergy-free, natural-looking lawn alternative.
