Ontario’s First Net-Zero Community Paves the Way for Sustainability with SYNLawn

Toronto, ON — In a significant leap towards sustainability, we at SYNLawn Toronto Artificial Grass proudly announce the successful completion of our synthetic turf installation at West 5, Ontario’s first-ever net-zero community. Situated in London, Ontario, this ambitious project spreads over 70 acres and is now fully operational, featuring 2,000 residential units and 400,000 square feet of commercial/retail space.


Building a Net-Zero Community with Synthetic Turf

Our SYNLawn Toronto team, headed by John Larsen, was instrumental in the transformation of the West 5 amphitheater. Our team skillfully installed 1,200 square feet of SYNSport, the perfect multi-purpose synthetic turf for large indoor or outdoor applications.

In line with the project’s sustainable vision, SYNSport boasts several eco-friendly attributes. The turf features SYNLawn’s exclusive plant-based EnviroLoc+™ backing system, replacing up to 60% of petroleum-based polyol with renewable soybeans. The absence of black rubber crumb and options for safe, clean, high-performance infill further accentuates its environmental compatibility.

Optimized for safety, SYNSport meets safety standards such as ASTM F1292, ASTM F1551, and ASTM F1951, making it a reliable choice for community spaces. Its ability to drain over 300 inches per hour, combined with UV-stabilized yarns resisting sun fading, ensures lasting performance and aesthetic appeal.

SYNLawn Canada’s commitment to precision and craftsmanship was on full display throughout the installation process. The net-zero community project posed numerous challenges with its tight edges, corners, curves, and small spaces. Nevertheless, the crew’s meticulous attention to detail ensured a flawless result, demonstrating our ability to meet complex project requirements precisely.


Celebrating Sustainability at West 5

West 5, a community designed to produce all its required energy via solar means, represents a significant stride towards sustainability. The completion of this community marks a milestone in environmentally conscious development and sets the benchmark for future green communities. SYNLawn Canada is thrilled to have contributed to this initiative, reinforcing our commitment to sustainable practices and innovation.
