Turf Systems: There is So Much More to Artificial Grass than Just Turf

Turf Systems: There is So Much More to Artificial Grass than Just Turf

Artificial turf is no longer that green plastic carpet your grandparents’ neighbours had in their yard. Today’s artificial grass systems look and feel incredibly natural and have many benefits over traditional botanical grass. Synthetic grass is incredibly low maintenance and looks beautiful year-round. There’s more that goes into turf systems than luscious green top layer that’s on display. Let’s take a look at what else goes into your artificial grass system.


The turf itself is obviously a major component of your artificial grass system. SYNLawn Vancouver Island offers a variety of different turfs for all applications! Whether you just want a beautiful low maintenance front or back yard, a personal putting green, or a deluxe dog run for your doggy daycare, we have a turf that’s perfect suited to your needs. Our artificial grass is made with both recycled and renewable components, giving it a longer life, and a positive environmental impact!


At SYNLawn Vancouver Island, we exclusively use Envirofill infill. It’s the perfect infill for our artificial grass systems because it increases the lifespan of your turf, improves athletic performance, and addresses any safety concerns that may arise from lesser infill products. Envirofill is made of green silicone dioxide granules that are much softer, cleaner, and environmentally friendly than silica sand infills. There are a number of other reasons why we believe Envirofill is the only choice for infill on the Island.

  • Vancouver Island is home to the most temperate climate in Canada, and Envirofill is much cooler than black crumb rubber infills.
  • Moisture is a concern that many Vancouver Islanders may have, especially during our rainy winters, as moisture breeds bacteria, mold, and mildew. Envirofill is infused with Microban ® technology that inhibits the growth of these microorganisms.
  • Envirofill is also resistant to stains and odors, making it a great choice for pet owners. It’s been proven to reduce pet odors by up to 99%.
  • If you need to change or replace specific areas of your artificial grass, Envirofill is reusable.
  • Unlike some other substandard infills, Envirofill requires zero watering, and no top-offs. It is designed to stay in place, and resist compaction.


You may not think about accessorizing your yard, but it’s an important component to your artificial grass system. Accessories allows us to blend your artificial grass into its surroundings and incorporate other natural features, like trees and shrubs. Add in flower beds, pathways, and lighting to really make your space your own! You will also need accessories like cups and flags to make your synthetic turf your person golf haven.


Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a completely maintenance-free artificial grass system. However, our systems require minimal maintenance, especially when compared to traditional grass. Rather than mowing, weeding, and watering, your artificial grass needs to be occasionally swept and disinfected. We carry all the products you need to care for your perfect lawn or sports turf. We also offer maintenance plans to do the chores that you don’t want to!
