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.

Rapid Lawn Landscape Solutions explains the many benefits of mulch

There are many advantages of adding mulch to a garden area, besides making the garden more attractive and finished looking.


These include:

  • One of the best benefits of mulch is its ability to retain moisture in the soil.
  • Organic mulches break down over time and contribute to soil health. This can be very helpful, especially if your soil fertility is poor.
  • Mulch reduces winter injury and helps with weed control.
  • Other garden mulch benefits include protection from erosion and protection from mechanical injury from weed eaters and lawnmowers.
  • Some mulch types, such as cypress, cedar or pinewood chips, do an excellent job of repelling ticks, gnats and fleas.

Organic Versus Inorganic Mulch


Organic mulches are derived from natural materials that decompose over time. As organic mulches decompose, they add nutrients and organic matter to the soil and beneficial microorganisms like nitrifying bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi are enhanced while undesirable pathogens — those that cause plant diseases are inhibited. Increased amounts of organic matter will improve soil tilth and drainage, increase soil moisture retention, reduce soil compaction, and attract earthworms.

Because organic mulches decompose, they need to be replaced.  Depending on the type of mulch used, replacement intervals vary from one to four years.


Inorganic mulches include stones, geotextile mats and landscape fabrics, and plastic mulches. Landscape fabrics and plastic mulches deteriorate with time and eventually require replacement.  Inorganic mulches usually are more tedious to install and may require irrigation because water penetration may be limited.  Some inorganic mulches are designed to reflect the sky to confuse and keep insects from landing on plants.  Many do not have a natural appearance and are often covered by an organic mulch for decorative purposes.

General Tips for Applying Mulches


Do not place mulch directly against plant crowns or tree bases. Mulch placed directly in contact with stems or tree trunks may retain excess moisture around the base of the plant that can favour the development of diseases like crown rot. Mulch piled around plants may also serve as lodging for bark and stem eating rodents.


Mulch applied too thickly can cause problems.  A wood-derived mulch may undergo high-temperature decomposition causing it to dry out.  The mulch may then be colonized by fungi that create water repellent conditions throughout the mulch.  Water is unable to penetrate the mulch and reach the soil and plants fail to receive adequate moisture. Mulching too deeply can also cause the soil to remain continuously wet contributing to root and stem rot problems in addition to depriving plants of needed oxygen. 

Apply a mulch layer no more than 1 to 3 inches thick. Thoroughly water newly installed wood or bark mulches.

Many good quality mulches are stored in large piles that reach high temperatures.  When the mulch is spread or bagged, the high-temperature tolerant microorganisms that inhabit the mulch die as the mulch cools. 

If the mulch is allowed to dry out or remain dry, nuisance fungi can colonize the mulch and create a water-repellent surface.

Add a source of nitrogen to garden soils before applying wood–derived mulches.  Soil microorganisms that decompose organic materials such as wood-based mulches are effective competitors for limited soil nitrogen. This may cause temporary nitrogen deficiencies, especially in annual and perennial plants. Yellowing of leaves often indicates a nitrogen deficiency. Lightly incorporate a source of nitrogen such as blood meal, urea or a high nitrogen lawn fertilizer before applying mulch.
