Considered artificial turf on your balcony, roof or patio?

Artificial turf/ synthetic grass is a beautiful addition to any home or business and we have are many durable style options and lengths that look and feel just like healthy grass. But did you know that artificial turf is ideal for surfaces above ground level too? The convenience and versatility of artificial turf makes it an excellent choice for almost any area, including roofs, patios, and balconies. The last place anyone would think to put grass would be the roof, right? What about grass on your deck or patio or even around your pool? Perfect Turf from Rapid Lawn can transform these areas into beautiful outdoor living areas to enhance your quality of life by creating more usable and functional spaces.

The benefits of Synthetic Turf are many.

  • There is no need to trim or water artificial grass so it can be placed virtually anywhere with very little maintenance.
  • It can also be cut to size and formed to fit around obstacles.
  • The unique construction of artificial lawn materials allows for adequate water drainage and heat distribution, so wherever it is placed, it remains comfortable and dry throughout the year.

Because it is inorganic, there’s no need to worry about pests or keeping it trimmed.

Let your imagination be your guide. You can create almost any type of area you want and decorate it in a variety of ways. You can turn a cement patio or balcony into a small garden getaway, just by using artificial turf and a few hanging plants. The opportunities are only limited by the boundaries of your imagination.

On the Balcony

If you live in an apartment or condominium you may not have much of a yard to speak of. Yet, you want to enjoy the outdoors in the Saskatchewan summers and expand your already tiny space for entertaining guests. Installing artificial turf on your balcony gives you the look and feel of having a yard without the muss and fuss of mowing, trimming, raking and weeding. Depending on the size of the balcony, you can put turf on a portion of it and leave the other portion cement, providing you with the best of both worlds.

The nice thing about using artificial turf on a balcony is that:

  • It can be cut to fit almost any area.
  • There are many designs to choose from, including the type of artificial turf colors and textures.
  • Have an existing garden and want the artificial turf to blend in? The materials that artificial turf is made from are so natural looking, even your neighbours won’t know it’s not real.

Add a fountain, a pergola, and patio furnishings to create a fully functional outdoor living space that will bring you peace for years to come.

 

Or if you live in a condo and have pet – artificial grass offers an awesome option for a space that is all theirs!

 

 

 

 

On the Roof

 

If you live on the top floor of an urban oasis or have a home with a flat roof that you use ( or are considering to use as an outside space) you can install artificial turf over regular roofing materials. This approach gives you an even more special area for recreation that

The benefits of installing artificial turf on your roof include:

  • Does not raise the temperature of the building
  • Manufactured grass is not damaged by hail, rain, snow or ice
  • Allows you to create a small oasis where you can relax and enjoy the sunshine
  • Enables you to use the extra space in a constructive fashion
  • Improves the street appeal and value of your property
  • Helps to insulate the building for a more energy friendly space

Artificial turf can be used on patios and porches as either a solid cover, or formed into a design that can be used in conjunction with pavers, marble tile or other landscaping materials. Your porch or patio is often set aside as a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors without actually venturing too far away from the house.
Artificial grass on your patio can:

  • Give you the feeling of having the grass under your feet without the work of maintaining a large yard.
  • If the area gets dirty, it can easily be hosed off.
  • No need to worry about pests as the artificial turf is virtually indestructible and repels unwanted creatures.

Consider how artificial turf can enhance the look of your home or business.

When to Plant Your Garden In Regina, Saskatchewan For Best Results.

First thing to note is that on average, your frost-free growing season in Regina starts May 21 and ends Sep 10, totaling 112 days.

Bedding Plants

In the greenhouse, bedding plants have been living the soft life: high humidity, regular water, bright light, still air and warm temperatures. They are not ready for the harsh reality of outdoors in Regina. Full sun and wind can kill them if they haven’t been “hardened off” or acclimatized. Do this by putting them outside during the daytime in a shady, sheltered site when air temperature is above 15 C. Bring them in at night. Over a period of a week to 10 days, gradually expose them to more light and wind. Make sure the soil does not dry out. They may need watering two or more times per day, especially on bright, warm, breezy days. But do not allow them to be waterlogged. Roots need oxygen as much as water and water-logging can lead to root death and rotting.

The May long weekend is the typical date for putting out bedding plants on the Prairies. But some hardier plants like pansy, artemisia and snapdragon can be planted one to two weeks earlier.

When To Plant Your Garden in ReginaPlant late in the day or on a cloudy day to reduce transplant shock. Prepare the planting area by loosening up the soil with a rototiller, spade or hand tool. Make a hole slightly larger than the root ball than gently firm the soil around the plant once in the ground. Do not break up the root ball even if it is root bound – when you do this, you can destroy much of the existing system putting further stress on the plant and delaying establishment. Water seedlings in well. Many ornamental annuals respond well to pinching by producing a bushier plant. But do not pinch vegetables. Remove any open flowers to channel energy into establishing a robust root system. After a week in the ground, give your bedding plants a half-strength fertilizer solution (e.g. 20-20-20) to give them a boost.

This information was found on the Saskatchewan Perennial Society website  

Vegetables

Cole crops like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage can be direct seeded into your garden around April 9, assuming the ground can be worked, but it’s better to start them indoors around March 12 and then transplant them into the garden around May 1. Do the same with lettuce and spinach.

Plant onion starts and potatoes around March 22. Sow the seeds of peas (sugar snap and english) at the same time. If the ground is still frozen, then plant these as soon as the ground thaws.

Do you want to grow tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants? Start these indoors around March 12. Then, around May 17 you should start watching the weather forecast . Warm season plants like tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers should only be planted when you are completely confident that all danger of frost is past (i.e. last week of May or even early June)  as soon as no frost is forecast, go ahead and transplant those into the ground.

Now, for all the summer vegetables like beans, cowpeas, corn, squashes, pumpkins, cucumbers, watermelons, gourds and sunflowers, you should plant those seeds directly into the ground around May 21, or if your soil is still very cold, once the soil is near 60° F in temperature. Having said that, note that Regina has a shorter than average growing season. Many summer vegetables need more days to mature than our area will provide. For that reason, we recommend you get a head-start by starting these summer vegetables indoors around May 1, and transplant those seedlings out after the danger of frost is past.

Trusted Regina Flooring Store Gives Some Inspirational Ideas About Sunroom Flooring.

Trent and the team at Regina's Flooring Superstores have established a strong and loyal customer base through their commitment to excellent customer service. By being part of the powerful buying group that is the Carpet Superstores chain, they are also able to provide quality Regina floor coverings at unbeatable prices. FLOORING SUPERSTORES are a TRUSTED REGINA FLOORING STORE.

What options are there for sunroom flooring?



Sunroom & Screen Room Flooring For a Perfect Oasis 

When it comes to installing or refurbishing sunroom flooring, you have a handful of options. Not all sunroom installations will include an option for flooring, so you’ll need to consult a contractor for your flooring needs. If you’re converting a spare room, deck, or porch into a sunroom know that sunrooms are a whole different animal from the rest of your home. Because they are exposed to the elements, albeit gently, as well as to traffic coming from outside, sunroom floors need to be sturdy and fade- and moisture-resistant. Picking out a sunroom flooring type can be challenging, especially if you want to use the room year-round. Floors here need to keep from overheating and burning bare feet when the sun is beating down hard, but they should also absorb some sunlight to warm the room come wintertime.


As with most things, each type of flooring has its advantages and its drawbacks. It’s all about picking the material that will work best for your needs. 



Carpet

If your sunroom also doubles as a playroom for your children, then carpet might be a good choice. Low-pile is typically best, as it will be easier to clean in a room as busy as this one.  Additionally, carpet offers a wide range of colors and patterns, making it easy to coordinate with your home. 

Tile

Tile is without a doubt one of the most popular choices for sunroom flooring.  Between ceramic, slate, or natural stone, different tiles can completely change the look of this space.  It’s durable, easy to clean and can easily be matched with any existing furniture.  As an added bonus, it can help keep the temperature in a sunroom comfortable during the warmer months.

Hardwood

Another classic choice for a sunroom is hardwood flooring.  With a wide range of choices between species and stains, wood flooring provides warmth underfoot and the home-style look many homeowners seek.


Flooring Tips to Keep in Mind

  • Three season rooms generally aren’t insulated, so choose flooring that will help keep the space warm during the winter months as long as possible. 
  • Flooring in screen room additions should be durable and be able to withstand the elements since they are exposed to the elements all year round.
  • If you install carpet in your sunroom, stick to a thinner pile and make sure your windows have proper UV protection.
  • Treat wood flooring with an oil-based stain to prevent sun damage. Many home improvement stores have wide selections of these stains
  • Regardless of the option you choose, make sure to clean and maintain your flooring regularly to extend its life and maintain its appearance.

What is Hydroseeding? Trusted Regina Landscaping Pro's explain all about Hydroseeding

Rapid Lawn Landscape Solutions Ltd. is a TRUSTED REGINA landscaping company who have helped many customers achieve the yards they have always dreamed of. 

In their latest article, they share some information on hydro seeding.

HYDROSEEDING 101

Hydroseeding, or Hydraseeding, is a technique that utilizes a slurry of seeds, mulch, and fertilizers, and it is an ideal way to revegetate large areas, and in fact many areas affected by forest fire or erosion can be seeded very rapidly using this technique. Here are some of the top questions Rapid get asked.


Is it Possible to Hydroseed Over Existing Lawn?

One of the biggest benefits of hydroseeding, of course, is that it can be used just about anywhere. Home/ acreage owners may use it to reseed their large lawns/ outdoor recreation spaces, and  commercial operators take advantage of the cost-effective nature of the process to quickly make any areas on their property look more lush.

In residential and smaller commercial applications the the hydroseed mixture is generally applied to a prepared area. However if you have a larger area that contains some grass or other vegetation we just need to be a little more careful during the seeding process if the area already has lawn or partial lawn.

The hydroseed mulch mixture is generally quite thick. This helps to protect the seeds during their germination phase. 

If there is an existing lawn in place and you still want to hydroseed over it, it is actually best to use a thinner mulch mixture when spraying. What you don’t want to do is completely cover the existing lawn areas and kill off the grasses. 

A thinner mulch mixture will mean that the seeds can still take root in the existing soil, but that the grasses already present will not be smothered.


What Is in the Hydroseeding Mixture and How Does it Work?

During the hydroseeding process, a special mixture is sprayed over an area and allowed to settle. The slurry that comprises the hydroseeding mixture is contained in a container and attached to a specially modified hose. As the water moves through the hose pipe, it picks up the hydroseed mixture and releases it through the nozzle of the hose.

See the video for an example of one of their machines at work.


Typically, the hydroseed mixture contains the following elements:
  • Seeds, usually grasses, that are ready to germinate
  • Cellulose fibers that form part of the protective mulch
  • Fertilizer that promotes seed germination and growth
  • Soil treating agents
  • Water
As the mixture is sprayed, the seeds are deposited on the soil surface and the mulch covers the seeds to form a protective layer. The included fertilizer promotes the germination of the seeds and provides the food required in the early stages of plant growth.

What Are The Benefits of Hydroseeding

In days gone by, revegetating a large area took a long time and was very labor intensive. This is not a cost-effective way to treat an area. Hydroseeding offers the following benefits:

Speed: Whether one is treating a small or a large area, as you can see in the video , the hydroseeding process is very rapid. This means that it saves both time and money.
Revegetation:  One of the biggest challenges that many communities face is the erosion of topsoils in what were once heavily farmed areas of land. Without grass or vegetation, the topsoil is prone to erosion. Hydroseeding is a great way to seed hardy and durable grass species over a large area very quickly and prevent further erosion of the soil. It is also a fantastic method of quickly revegetating damaged areas of land, such as those areas that have been ravaged by forest fires.

Environmental Benefits

Hydroseeding can ‘recover’ large areas of land as they can be seeded very quickly and cost effectively. The fertile mixture of mulch and seeds provides a bed upon which other plant life can grow and may even provide the basis upon which fauna returns to the area in order to feed and reproduce.

The Ideal Way to Seed New Plant Life
Hydroseeding is a fantastic method of repairing damaged soils and revegetating large areas. It is rapid, cost effective, and successful.

Benefits Of Landscaping - By Rapid Lawn Landscape Solutions

Rapid Lawn Landscape Solutions Ltd. is a TRUSTED REGINA landscaping company who have helped many customers achieve the yards they have always dreamed of. In their latest article, they share some benefits of landscaping.


It’s easy to appreciate the sights and smells afforded by lush green lawns and landscapes, but did you know their real value is much more substantial than pleasing aesthetics and aromas? That’s right, well-managed landscapes offer tremendous benefits for people and for the environment.


Environmental Benefits of Landscaping


Benefits Of Landscaping

  • Natural Coolants – Grass is much cooler than asphalt or cement. It acts as an “air conditioner” for the surrounding area. In fact, lawns can be 31 degrees cooler than asphalt and 20 degrees cooler than bare soil. Trees shading homes can reduce attic temperatures by as much as 40 degrees.
  • Environmental Cleaners – Grass plays a vital role in capturing dust, smoke particles and other pollutants, and it produces oxygen.
  • Water Protectors – Healthy lawns absorb unhealthy runoff that might otherwise filter into bodies of water.
  • Air Cleaners – Grasses absorb carbon dioxide and break it down into oxygen and carbon. A turf area 50′ x 50′ produces enough oxygen to meet the everyday needs of a family of four.
  • Noise Minimizers – Lawns and plants dramatically reduce noise pollution; they can reduce noise levels by 20 percent to 30 percent over hard surfaces like concrete and pavement.
  • Turfgrass slows down and absorbs runoff into bodies of water.

Even in areas that have water restrictions and are experiencing drought, it is important that lawns and landscapes remain a viable component of healthy communities. There are a number of sustainable practices that will allow managed lawns and landscapes to reduce water usage but still provide important environmental benefits.

Benefits of Commercial Landscaping 

Businesses are more successful when they provide clients with landscaped areas around buildings and plants inside Best regina landscaperbuildings.

  • Research found seven percent higher rental rates for commercial offices having high-quality landscapes.
  • Shoppers claim they will spend nine to 12 percent more for goods and services in central business areas that have high quality tree canopies.
  • Shoppers indicate they will travel a greater distance and a longer time to visit an area with a high-quality tree canopy, and spend more time there once they arrive.*
  • Companies that provide their employees with interactions with nature also benefit. Research showed that workers who could view nature from their desks had much better job and life satisfaction and better health.

Physical and Psychological Benefits Of Landscaping

  • The benefits of human interaction with plants, trees, and grass are also well studied and documented. Research has found that people find stress relief and healing when interacting with nature or even viewing it through a window.
  • According to Harvard Health Publications, children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) seem to focus better after being outdoors. Workers are more productive as well when working in environments with plants, and cognitive function is improved.

But, perhaps more important than what science tells us, is what people instinctively feel about the plants and green spaces in their lives–that the connection makes their lives better, and they want to make an effort to incorporate it into their lives.
