STI is the Solution

Posted on in News.

As the holidays begin to approach, the focus shifts from being outdoors on your lawns to spending time traveling and visiting with loved ones. Synthetic Turf International® would like to take this opportunity to remind all our customers and dealers that now is the perfect time to start thinking about spring and summer plans. Namely, turf.

Synthetic turf is the perfect solution for that high maintenance lawn that you spend hours and hours slaving over in the hopes that when you are done you and your family can enjoy it. However that is not always the case. Often weather plays a significant factor in the health of your lawn and your ability to maintain it. Let STI help with that. Consider working with us in the winter season so that you can be prepared once the snow melts to have your own STI lawn or putting green installed. After all less time spent working on your lawn means more family time.

Featured Application: Central Coast Playgrounds

Posted on in News.

This week’s featured application comes to us from Steve Strachan of Central Coast Playgrounds. The project was for Peoples Self Help, a Non Profit affordable housing company and this site was located in Casa De Las Flores in Carpinteria, Calif.

According to Steve, “We have been doing their playground/site furnishings for almost 15 years now. Two years ago I convinced them to utilize Synthetic Turf for the playground surfacing. This is the fourth site that has STI products.”

As everyone knows California is in a serious drought, leading many home owners and businesses to choose synthetic turf. On this project they eliminated all grass and went with turf.

Natural grass needs significant upkeep and requires copious amounts of water in order to in order to maintain a healthy appearance and feel.   Synthetic turf does not require any of the typical lawn maintenance like mowing, watering or seeding.

Playground sites have a large amount of traffic day in and day out. Clients love the SoftLawn EZ Play®, and by looking at the list below it is easy to see why.
