Is Artificial Grass Eco-Friendly Enough for Vancouver Island?

Is Artificial Grass Eco-Friendly Enough for Vancouver Island?

Did you know that, on average, a Vancouver Island resident uses 220 litres of water per person per day, including on lawn irrigation? Or that the typical grass sports field can require more than 2 million litres of water or more each year? Many Canadians take the country’s abundant water resources for granted, using two to three times the amount people use in some European countries. One way to lower water consumption is by eliminating natural grass surfaces that need constant irrigation. Call us for a consultation! 

Eco-Friendly Artificial Grass on Vancouver Island 

From Victoria to Port Hardy, Vancouver Island residents enjoy a mostly mild climate. That means they get to enjoy a lot more time outdoors than people in other parts of the country. The many opportunities to enjoy golf greens, playgrounds, parks, gardens, and sports parks, though, means excessive water usage. Synthetic grass is a great solution for decreasing our high level of water consumption. 

Artificial grass has a measurable, positive impact on the environment. If the only eco-friendly advantage it had were the water it saved, that would be enough. But there are many more environmental benefits synthetic turfs bring to the table. 

  • Less time-consuming yard maintenance, including no trimming and mowing. That means fewer carbon emissions and a reduced carbon footprint.
  • No harmful residue from chemical fertilizers. No weedkillers, herbicides, or pesticides need to be used to keep your artificial grass looking great.
  • Non-toxic for pets. Lead-free, SYNLawn synthetic turf is 100% animal-friendly.  
  • Safe for children to play on. Toxin-free synthetic grass is safe for kids, too. It also provides a consistently soft surface that helps prevent injury from falls. 

Making the switch to SYNLawn Vancouver Island’s artificial grass solutions is a smart choice—and a beautiful one, too!  

Protecting the Environment with Eco-Friendly Materials and More 

Some people avoid installing artificial grass because they’ve heard you can’t recycle it, and it eventually ends up in landfills. SYNLawn artificial turf products are biobased constructed for a long life, typically up to 25 years. Materials such as recycled plastic bottles and soybean pods are reprocessed into raw pellets which are converted into long spools of textured yarn. The yarn is then used to create different models of artificial grass. Finally, because SYNLawn uses renewable resources to produce its products, they’re 100% recyclable when they reach the end of their life.
