Performance Marine is a Trusted Regina Boat & Marine Vehicle Dealer.

 




In 1997 Wayne Lorch founded Performance Marine in Regina, bringing Bayliner (the #1-selling leisure boat in the industry) to Saskatchewan, along with Chaparral luxury boats.  Performance Marine quickly became the dealership of choice by following one simple philosophy...  

At Performance Marine the customer is their #1 Priority. 

They believe that nothing is more important than customer satisfaction. 

This approach has earned them the approval from Trusted Regina and several great local and international awards, including:

The Paragon Award for Continued Excellence in Customer Service, 

The Torch Award for Ethics & Integrity 

THREE “Top” 100 Dealer Rankings in North America.

Performance Marine - A History Of Excellence

In January of 2018, three long term employees were given the opportunity to purchase the business.  James McIntosh, Murray Wilson and Jeff Adams.  Together their plan for the future of Performance Marine is SERVICE while maintaining their customer first philosophy. The dealership not only sells new & used boats it has a full mechanical shop with 4 factory trained mechanics. The only SGI accredited boat body shop in Saskatchewan, thousands of in-stock parts and accessories and they offer short term or long term storage.  Have you been into their showroom lately? It is packed with boats, accessories and happy friendly staff!

"The entire staff is amazing and friendly. Their annual boat show they put on is absolutely a site to see. Jeff the mechanic was fun to talk too and showed me a lot. I''ll definitely be going back there when my boat needs a tune up." JR Falzetta
" Glad to share my positive experiences here! Our family is in the market for a new family ski boat and have looked around at a few different places. We narrowed our choices down to a few different brands and paid a visit to each dealership. Hands-down our best experience was here... very friendly and knowledgeable staff who were willing to spend lots of time with us to find the right boat. Looking forward to picking up our new Chaparral " Brian Kelley
This year they are also offering dockside boat service for the first time.

Over the years Performance Marine has been able to maintain a knowable long term staff and an incredible customer base with lots of room to grow.   They are Saskatchewan’s only full-service marine facility, complete with a Capsizer 8000TM boat lifting/turning system, a full marine paint booth, and in-house propeller & skeg repair.

The Trusted Regina community are proud to welcome our newest Regina partner on the Trusted Regina directory Regina Battery Depot is your Trusted Regina battery store! 

You may know their sign but we want you to know how excellent it is inside this long-standing Regina battery business.

Regina Battery Depot is your Trusted Regina Battery Expert!  


You will find them listed under the Regina specialty retail category on the TrustedRegina directory or you can simply use our simple search tool and search ' BATTERY'. 

Why did we put them under specialty retail? Because they sell so much more than just Automotive batteries!

After four decades of energizing the rapidly evolving world of electronics, one thing has always stayed the same about the Regina Battery Depot: they are able to provide almost any type of battery a customer can imagine; from automotive to commercial, from hearing aids to digital cameras, from alkaline to rechargeable, they carry a battery for virtually anything. If they do not carry the battery, or they can’t rebuild it, they will do their best to source it for their customer. 

When putting them through the Trusted Regina verification process we quickly found out how great their service is. We personally telephone survey many of the applicant's past customers and in this case, every one of the people we spoke to gave them 10/10!!  

Here is what some of their customers had to say to our local team:

"Love these guys! Always have a battery for whatever I need - whether it is a remote starter for my vehicle or a watch battery.  They even take out the old battery, test it, then put in the new one. My place to go for all my battery needs." Pauline Relkey


"Their Customer Service is outstanding will be a customer for a long time" Gary Winslow.

Not sure 25+ people is enough? Check out their 80 Google reviews or the many others around the web...such as their customer below... 

"I went on what was probably the busiest day in years. -40 temps killed tons of batteries including my own. It was lined up right to the door 4 or 5 wide... it was like a black Friday sale at visions there was so many people. But I didn't have to wait too long and you can bet they had my battery" Marcus


The Regina Battery Depot has literally decades of helping the people of Regina and surrounding area!  Originally opened in March of 1971 in a small shop on Winnipeg Street. The business has remained on Winnipeg Street since then, but not always in the same location. In 1974 they moved down the block and in 1991, they moved again to their current location, right across the street.

Trusted Regina Landscapers Rapid Lawn Landscaping Solutions Share News About Native Grasses in Landscaping


Rapid Lawn Landscape Solutions Ltd. is your Trusted Regina landscaping company. They have helped many customers achieve the yards they have always dreamed of. In their latest Trusted Regina Landscaping Tip, they share some wonderful advice on incorporating native plants and grasses in your landscaping.

Native Plants and Grasses

Native plants and grasses are exactly what their name indicates – plants that have historically grown organically in an area. Because these plants have adapted to regions’ climates for centuries, they’re perfectly suited to growing in your backyard with little help from you.

Selecting Native Plants and Grasses

No matter what type of garden you have, native plants and grases make an excellent addition.

  • Native flowers, trees, shrubs, grasses and groundcovers all create natural habitat and provide food sources for local wildlife. Some examples include: Saskatoon berry, dogwood, willow, sage, wild blue flax, coneflower, crocus, gaillardia, wild columbine, and aster. For a detailed list, contact the Native Plant Society of Saskatchewan.
  • Purchase from a native plant supplier to ensure you receive quality plants that are actually native to the prairies (and not simply horticultural varieties). For a list of all the native plant and seed suppliers in western Canada, visit npss.sk.ca.
  • Before planting exotic species (plants that are not from Saskatchewan), consider if there are native alternatives that provide similar qualities.
  • Do not grow invasive or aggressive plants that have the potential to take over your garden and spread throughout your community. For a list of regulated weeds, visit saskinvasives.ca.
  • If growing fruits or vegetables, choose heritage and heirloom varieties that are rare or endangered. Save seeds to preserve these plants for future generations.

Native plants and grassesNative plants and grasses are great low-water-use plants because they’ve adapted to the soil in which they grow, and their deep root systems are capable of storing water gathered primarily from rainfall.

When designing your landscape for water efficiency, be sure to choose plants that are defined as low water use or drought tolerant for your area.

Choosing native plants can be intimidating, but keep in mind that drought tolerant plants often have a unique leaf structure such as:

  • Fine lacy foliage–reduced leaf surface means less water lost through surface evaporation
  • Thick, succulent or waxy leaves–thick leaves store more moisture
  • Hairy or fuzzy leaves–fine hairs keep moisture trapped at the leaf surface

 

Planting for Success

When planting the seeds to establish native grasses, you’ll need to water the newly planted seeds to prevent the top of the soil from drying out. Even the most drought tolerant grasses require supplemental water until they are established. The smaller the root system, the more water they'll need, but the general rule is one inch of water per week (including rain). Less frequent but deep watering is better for plants than more frequent but light watering because it encourages them to send their roots down deeper into the soil.

When the grass is about an inch tall, you can decrease the frequency and increase the depth of watering.

You can stop adding water once the grass is established and just count on rain to do the watering for you.


Other Considerations:

  • Enjoy an all-season garden by planting tall native grasses, growing trees and shrubs with attractive bark or berries, and adding potted plants to your indoor and outdoor living spaces.
  • Research gardening techniques that incorporate biodiversity and native plants, such as xeriscaping and permaculture.
  • Support biodiversity in your community by getting involved with community gardens and preserving natural areas.

The Benefits Of An Electric Fireplace


Electric Fireplaces are Energy Efficient Low-Maintenance & Safe

If you’re concerned about the safety of fireplaces, an electric model is for you. Electric fireplaces remain cool to the touch, which is great for homes with curious children. They also can be run on a timer, meaning you don’t have to worry about shutting them off before leaving the house. 
Resale Value

Many homeowners think that installing and maintaining a fireplace is an unaffordable luxury. What if you could get warmth and comfort on a budget? Installation and operation of an electric fireplace cost a fraction of wood-burning and gas alternatives. Read on to find out why an electric fireplace is a  perfect option for your home.

There are two main types of electric fireplaces: plug-in inserts and built-in inserts. Neither of these options requires any certification, and the installation process is typically quick, cheap and easy. 

These plug into standard outlets and are typically installed into a pre-existing mantel or mounted on a wall. As long as you have an outlet within range of your installation site. If not, an electrician can install one in no time. If you go with a wall mounted option, a handyman can mount it safely.



These can be built into a mantel, an entertainment centre, or the wall. This option can heat a larger area and typically offers a sleeker look but is more expensive. A high-end built-in unit will cost between 800 and 900 dollars, which is still significantly less than wood and gas alternatives. To install a built-in fireplace, you’ll need the help of an electrician. A general contractor can also design a more complex wall unit for your fireplace, which we recommend if you plan on making it the focal point of your room.


Electric fireplaces are also a great way to lower your heating costs through supplemental heating. You can use electric fireplaces to heat specific high-traffic areas of your home without engaging your central heating system. This means come winter, you can turn down your thermostat and instead turn up your fireplace. A built-in model can heat an area of 800 square feet, and only costs between 7 and 13 cents per hour when running.


One of the best things about an electric model is that they don’t produce soot, ash, or fumes, meaning they don’t require ventilation. This makes them safer and they require significantly less maintenance than real or gas-burning fireplaces. An electric fireplace is also less susceptible to rust and can go a decade without repair. That being said, make sure you have the proper electrical setup and be sure to have it inspected regularly by a seasoned electrician or home inspector.    


What many homeowners don’t realize is that fireplaces are high up on potential buyers’ wish lists. Though most buyers prefer a wood-burning or gas model, a well placed and high-quality electric fireplace is also valuable. Considering the low cost of purchase and installation, there is ample opportunity for a relatively high ROI when your home goes on the market.    

As you can see, electric fireplaces are the best option for anyone who wants to maximize style and savings and minimize  risk. With tons of models on the market, we’re positive you’ll be able to find a stylish option  perfect for your home. If you act fast, you can have your fireplace up and running before the real winter hits.
