Transform your backyard with a maintenance-free turf surface

When Drew MacIntosh was called to quote on an artificial turf design, his clients had one thing in mind: their wedding. The clients, who were set to wed that summer, wanted nothing more than a dependably green lawn that could endure the footsteps of dozens of guests, and continue to look great season after season as newlyweds.

As the owner of Northern Turf Solutions, Simcoe and Muskoka’s only Pro Green Synthetic Turf Systems authorized dealer, Drew wasn’t surprised by the request.

“Artificial turf is a beautiful, maintenance-free way to elevate your landscape at home or the cottage,” he says. Nor was he surprised by the size of the 6,500 square foot backyard space.

Over his years in the business, Drew has installed turf in backyards of all shapes and sizes – from 350 to over 12,000 square feet – each customized to the client’s needs.

Designing the turf install was easy for Drew, who worked with local landscapers and pool designers on the space’s shape, size, and grade, crafting a design that included soft green multi-purpose space and a 500-square-foot putting green.

“With Pro Green, you get the durability and reliability of artificial turf that looks and feels natural.”

What lends to the 100 percent American-made turf’s organic appeal is its pro-flow design. Unlike its competitors, Pro Green’s turf drains evenly across the surface.

“Typically, you’d see drainage holes punched in the turf, allowing water to drain at a rate of 45 to 60 gallons an hour,” says Drew. The pro-flow design lets water flow through at up to 437 gallons per hour, a flow rate that is superior to natural grass.

While their turf looks natural, Drew’s clients have loved how low maintenance it is.

“You pay once for the installation, and enjoy for years without any upkeep,” says Drew, noting its net-zero environmental impact. The clients do not need a lawn mower, haven’t spent a dime on fertilizer or weed suppressants, and haven’t wasted a drop of water to keep it green.

Better yet, they can rest assured knowing the turf has a 15-year manufacturer warranty.

Whether you’re looking to add a personal putting green, dog runs, kid-friendly play space, or dependable poolside landscaping alternative, Northern Turf Solutions can provide a maintenance-free solution to suit your needs.
