SYNLawn received four industry awards from the Synthetic Turf Council (STC) recognizing outstanding achievements. The company won in the residential, commercial, sports and innovator categories, an increase from two awards last year including the 2019 Landscape Installation of the Year at Suze Orman’s vacation home.
“We are honored to be recognized by the Synthetic Turf Council,” said George Neagle, executive vice president at SYNLawn. “We aim to continue to lead the way in the synthetic turf industry. The exceptional installations by our winning distributors, plus our innovative new line of products made with Super Yarn technology, showcase the talents of our distributors and fabricators across the country.”
Winners of this year’s awards include:
- Sports Field Project of the Year – Under 75K sq. ft. –Madison Square Boys & Girls Club installed by SYNLawn New York: This 6,000 square foot multi-purpose field was masterfully built on the rooftop of the Madison Boys & Girls Club in Harlem. The SYNLawn addition ensures a safe, clean, and healthy place for the Sugar Hill community to play softball, football, soccer and more for generations to come. The turf provides enhanced safety with a Class A Fire-rating that meets New York City building code requirements and adds peace of mind in durability with a 15-year warranty.
- Landscape Project of the Year – Commercial –Barkwood Dog Park installed by SYNLawn Northeast Ohio: This pup playland in Beachwood provides more than 22,000 square feet and is the first full-sized artificial grass dog park in Northeastern Ohio. The park features turf covered play structures specifically designed for the more than 400 dogs registered to use the space. In a truly collaborative effort, Wilkins and team worked side by side with twenty city workers to assist with the install to meet budget constraints. Barkwood Park will no doubt inspire other communities to follow suit in creating beautiful, functional and sustainable dog parks.
