19th Hole Turf was contracted in March 2015 to replace the existing backyard natural grass for a child care centre in Saanich B.C. with an artificial turf surface. The problem they were experiencing is a common one on the west coast, very wet weather over the winter months along with very little sunshine, the result kids tracking mud around everywhere including home with them at the end of the day. Exercise is important for little ones, so a safe mud free place to play was important not only to the centre and parents but equally to the 19th hole turf, Low maintenance of the artificial turf was also very important to the centre as they are open five days a week with very little time between sessions to upkeep the area.
The installation of the artificial turf began with removal of the existing grass surface, installation of base material for drainage of the artificial turf surface also to provide a stable sub strait for the constant use of the area by the centre. The artificial turf surface was reopened to rave reviews by the owner of the centre, children and their parents, the area is now safe and usable year round without any loss of use do to inclement weather conditions.
