Okanagan Area Wild Fires

Oh it has been a wild fire summer!  Hot temperatures with no rain continues to affect our landscape. Gone are the days of green lawns and an abundance of irrigation water.  Here to stay are water restrictions that limit water consumption for irrigating our lawns and gardens.  Conscientious home and business owners are having to re-think landscape designs.  Xeriscaping is now the way to go!

A xeriscape front yard does not have to be all rock.  As seen above SYNLawn® Okanagan created a green space that looks like real grass with a creek flowing through by simply cutting the artificial grass and being a little creative.

As Okanagan residents continue to experience heavy smoke in all areas with limited visibility, water restrictions and hot temperatures the idea of installing synthetic grass landscape systems become more popular.  SYNLawn® products have a Class A fire rating which is comforting especially with concerns of wild fires.  If you enjoy shade and colour in your yard it’s easy to plant a few shade trees and potted plants to brighten up and customize your landscape.

During the summer of 2017 the SYNLawn® Okanagan team have been installing many backyard and front yard putting greens for home owners.  Pools are a popular item in the Okanagan as well.  Having synthetic grass installed around your pool will help eliminate grass cuttings in the pool, feel soft on the feet and look amazing.

Put away, better yet sell your lawn mower and enjoy the time freedom with quiet summer days doing what you love.  Grass allergies be gone!  The smell of fresh cut grass may seem pleasant to some but with those who suffer from allergies it can feel confining and concerning.

Tall pines are common in the Okanagan but also a fire hazard.  The dry pine needles and dry branches of these trees should be cut back from any residential landscape to help eliminate the possibility of wild fires spreading onto your property.  Safety and fun are number one!

School is back in session and for many it is a time to get back into routines.  This could be your time to consider how you can scale back on the yard work and have additional protection from the worries of sparks that could start a fire in the dry climate of the Okanagan.  Keep your home safer, use less water but still have a green and beautiful landscape with an artificial grass system by giving us a call today.
