SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay Fulfills an Artificial Grass Wish for the Make-A-Wish Foundation

At SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay, our team not only supplies and installs high-quality artificial grass, but we also do what we can to help others, especially our neighbors in Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia. Recently, we had the opportunity to fulfill a very important wish from Rohan, who is part of the Make-A-Wish program from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Along with some assistance from Brock USA, Aggtrans, Bowen’s Farm Supply, USGreentech, and Rental Works of Maryland, SYNLawn Chesapeake was able to provide Rohan and his family with a soft and even artificial turf backyard, making Rohan’s wish come true. 

The Make-A-Wish Foundation 

The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in April of 1980. It is a nonprofit organization operating in nearly 50 countries around the world but primarily in the United States. The purpose of this nonprofit is to fulfill the wishes of children who have been diagnosed with critical illnesses. 

Most of the wishes the organization receives fall into one of five categories:  

“I wish to go…”
“I wish to be…”
“I wish to meet…”
“I wish to have…”
“I wish to give…”

The Make-A-Wish Foundation takes a child’s wish into consideration along with guidance from their doctor and finds the most appropriate opportunity during their treatment to fulfill their wish. In many cases, the organization works with other nonprofits, corporations, and companies to help make a child’s wish come true and provide them with a truly unforgettable experience. 

Rohan’s Wish for Artificial Grass

Rohan is one of our many neighbors living in the Chesapeake Bay area. Unfortunately, this sweet little boy was sadly diagnosed with leukodystrophy. This disorder comes in a variety of forms. However, leukodystrophies of any kind are a group of rare genetic disorders. They are characterized by abnormal growth of white matter in the brain that damages the brain’s myelin sheath. This damage can affect the messages sent between the brain and body, which can cause issues with movement, speech, vision, hearing, and mental and physical development.  

As a result of his leukodystrophy diagnosis, Rohan found himself unable to play in his backyard with his family. The rough dirt and uneven surface made it difficult for him to move around with his walker. So when the time came for Rohan to receive a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, he wished for artificial grass for his backyard, so he could have a soft, level surface to freely move around on and play with his father, mother, and sister. 

SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay Delivered 

At SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay, we understand how important it is to have beautiful and usable outdoor green spaces. After all, that’s why we are in the artificial grass business: to help provide our clients in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. with stunning and durable green spaces. We believe that everyone needs accessible green spaces to admire, unwind, and enjoy, which is why we felt called to help grant Rohan’s wish. 

Along with our friends at Brock USA, our team of synthetic turf installers provided Rohan and his family with a gorgeous, green artificial grass lawn, spanning most of their backyard. This new artificial lawn is equipped with Brock USA’s SP17 XL shock pads, which provide Rohan with greater support for moving around and a safer surface if he falls. On top of this padding sits our SYNAugustine 847 turf, which features low pile-height, close-knit thatch, and ultra-realistic grass blades. Together, Rohan and his family’s new artificial grass lawn is ideal for improving his ability to move around and play outside while remaining safer. 

Wish granted!

Meet Emily & Cooper Who Are On The SYNAugustine847 Artificial Dog Grass

Here you can see one of our lovely employees, Emily, and the dog Cooper (Emily rescued him) on the SYNAugustine847 fake pet grass. If we didn’t tell you it was fake grass, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. And it seems from the fun they are having on it that they don’t mind either!

Artificial Pet Turf

We Offer a Discount For Rescue Dog Owners

Just like we greatly appreciate Emily for rescuing Cooper, we appreciate anyone in Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia who adopts or rescues dogs. So if you have adopted or rescued a dog, we want to pay it forward to you. Simply call and speak to one of our cordial staff and see if you qualify for a $250 discount.

Our Synthetic Pet Grass Is Extremely Safe Pet Grass

For just about any safety concerns you can think of when it comes to your grass and your dog, we’ve got you covered.

No Fertilizers Or Herbicides Or Pesticides Needed

Unlike regular grass, which may often need to be given fertilizer or treated with some sort of pesticide, our artificial pet grass will never need this. This means you won’t have to worry about your dog ingesting any of these products, which could cause nasty symptoms. There’s a reason those lawn treatment signs exist on people’s yards!

Not Habitable To Fleas Or Ticks

While regular grass is habitable to parasites like fleas and ticks, the SYNLawn artificial pet turf is not. This means you won’t have to worry about letting your dog out into your yard and coming back into your house with unwanted guests. Not only can these parasites transmit infections and diseases to your dog, but they can do the same to you should your dog bring them into your home.  

Won’t Grow Plants That Can Harm Your Dog

Certain weeds out there can make your dog quite sick if ingested. Also, grass seed can be surprisingly harmful to dogs, as it can get stuck to their fur and irritate their skin. With our artificial pet grass, you won’t have to concern yourself with potentially harmful things growing in your yard.

No Puddles To Harbor Bacteria Or Mosquitoes

Puddles forming in your yard can be a potential source of danger for your dog. If there are stagnant puddles of water in your yard, bacteria can multiply in them, which certainly won’t be a good thing should your dog then drink from it. Additionally, mosquitoes love to lay their eggs in stagnant water; so when they hatch, they can target your dog and you. With our latest pet grass, it drains quickly so no stagnant puddles of water form in your yard.

Artificial Pet Grass

Our Synthetic Pet Grass Prioritizes Cleanliness

The last thing you want is a filthy yard that not only affects your dog, but smells foul as well. With our latest synthetic dog run turf, neither of these things will be an issue. With the latest in innovative quick draining technology plus odor control, your pet grass lawn will look and smell beautiful year round.

The Days Of Your Dog Jumping Into Mud Puddles & Running Through Your House Are Over

It can be a huge headache for your dog to jump into a dirty mud puddle in your yard and then dash into your house, leaving muddy footprints everywhere! When that happens, not only do you have to spend time cleaning your house, but you’ll also have to give your dog a bath. The latest in artificial dog turf will prevent any of this from happening.

Because our latest version of fake pet grass drains fast, filthy puddles in your yard won’t form in the first place for your dog to run into and roll in, preventing them from being completely covered in dirt.

No More Foul Odors For You & Your Dog To Smell

With regular lawns, it’s much easier for foul smells to build up over time. If your dog chooses to urinate in one spot, that area can quickly begin to smell if the drainage is poor. With our artificial pet turf that drains swiftly, bad smelling stenches will no longer be a worry.

With regards to solid waste, our synthetic pet grass is both antimicrobial and very easy to clean, making this one less thing you have to fret over.

Synthetic Dog Run Turf

Our Synthetic Pet Grass Is Durable & Secure

Our latest version of artificial grass is extremely strong and durable, meaning it won’t break and will be able to keep your dog safe.

Your Lawn Will Look The Same No Matter How Much Your Dog Runs & Plays In It

Due to the incredible strength and durability of our synthetic fake dog grass, your dog will be able to run and play to their heart’s content. While a big dog running and digging in the yard would normally leave quite a mess, our synthetic pet grass will look like nothing happened!

Your Dog Will Be Secure In Your Yard

Our synthetic pet grass is so durable it will be able to fully resist your dog digging into it. There are many other major benefits besides preventing your lawn from looking like a moonscape. One of the biggest worries of pet owners is that their dog will dig under a fence and escape their yard. With this latest version of synthetic dog turf, this thought no longer has to be something that you lose sleep over.

SYNLawn Pet Turf Is Extra Comfortable

Besides looking incredible, our latest synthetic dog run turf is also very comfortable for your dog. Firstly, the artificial pet turf looks and feels just like real grass. This means your dog won’t be able to tell the difference while having fun outside. Secondly, it is made of our temperature cooling artificial grass. This means that even during a warm sunny day, the artificial pet grass will be able to dissipate heat so that it doesn’t get too hot for your dog.

Why You Should Get Artificial Pet Grass

Pretty much every feature you could want in artificial pet grass for your dog, the SYNLawn synthetic pet grass provides. It looks and feels just like real grass. It is comfortable to play on. It prioritizes cleanliness and odor control. And most important of all, it is safe and secure for your pet to run around and play on.

Breakthrough K-9 Training

We at SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay appreciate our clients and also love sharing with you the artificial grass projects we have designed and installed. Browse our gallery for to view more of our projects.

Today’s post is a recent project we installed for Breakthrough K-9 Training located in Richmond, Virginia. Owners Stephanie and Lenny, specialize in obedience and behavioral training for dogs and have over 10 years of experience. They provide boarding and training packages for puppies, aggressive dogs, special needs and so much more at their center in Virginia.

The SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay team installed our SYNTipede243 product on a little over 2500 SF to make a beautiful outdoor training space for the dogs and handlers to enjoy! The team graded over a foot of dirt, laid down CR6 and stone dust, installed our perimeter boards and installed our SYNLawn product, Envirofill is the top dressing we used for this project.

Stephanie and Lenny were so nice and wonderful to work with, even when we ran into a small issue and the incorrect turf was delivered. They were extremely patient through the process of getting a new roll sent out and even all the rain that week! Luckily, they loved their new outdoor training dog grass area so much that they had us quote another area at the training center before we left the site! These projects are some of our favorites because we love supporting the dog community and of course, the dogs love playing and running around on our turf! Another plus is no muddy paws and it’s so easy to clean and maintain.

SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay Hits a Home Run with the National Building Museum LAWN Project

Nothing says summer like a wide expanse of soft green grass, which is why the LAB at Rockwell Group and National Building Museum chose ‘Lawn’ as the theme for this year’s Summer Block Party installation. SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay was responsible for the challenging installation of over 26,000 square feet of SYNAugustine 547 within a very tight time frame. The Chesapeake Bay team really hit this one out of the park as one of the largest and fastest government installs the brand has handled. With an expected 60,000 visitors to have enjoyed the artificial turf over the summer until the exhibit closes September 2nd, Lawn has been a great source of exposure for the SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay team.

The Bio-Based Artificial Turf

Since the annual Summer Block Party series held by the National Building Museum takes place indoors, they wanted the most environmentally-friendly, natural-looking and feeling artificial turf they could find. This naturally led the designers and architects to SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay, the local supplier for Maryland, Virginia, and the D.C. area. SYNAugustine 547 not only perfectly mimics the look of lush St. Augustine grass, but it’s also a green choice, thanks to its bio-based artificial turf formula.

A large percentage of the petroleum products used for traditional manufacturing are replaced with soybean and sugarcane byproducts, making this the greenest artificial turf. On top of being so green, SYNAugustine 547 is also one of the most durable turf options as well. The lawn installation involved stapling and screwing the turf to 60-foot high plywood forms used to form the slope, with the need for infill. Despite working under a strict timeline, the Chesapeake Bay team completed the installation on time and even handled unexpected additions like turf-covered stairs.

Making the Most of the Biggest Government Installs

To reduce the chance of any waste the 100% recyclable turf material used for lawn will be enough to repurpose and be installed somewhere else when the exhibit ends on Labor Day. SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay and the National Building Museum have already selected companies and groups in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area that could benefit substantially from the repurposed turf. With over 26,000 square feet used for the total installation at the National Building Museum, all that reused artificial turf could go a long way for playground ground cover, putting greens, dog parks, and more.

While bio-based SYNLawn turf works great for government and commercial uses, it makes a great front or back lawn, too. Call SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay today at  443-376-6787 for a free quote.
