Artificial Grass with Precision
Precision Greens was established in 1999 with the construction of a 600 square foot golf green in the backyard of a home in South Surrey. It took an entire summer to build and was the inspiration for moving forward in this industry. Today, Precision Greens has since built more that 1100 Golf Greens and more than 3000 Artificial Grass installations. Almost 17 years later, Precision Greens is the benchmark for quality Synthetic Turf Golf Greens and Artificial Grass Lawns in Canada.
Precision Greens cherishes every opportunity to show our customers what we are capable of creating. We are golf enthusiasts that have valuable experience in creating fun and realistic golf environments. We are also perfectionists in that every project, whether it be a golf green or artificial grass landscape, is created to do justice to its surroundings. Precision Greens understands what high expectations accompany such large investments and spare no expense to ensure the happiness of every customer we have the privilege of working for.
Precision Greens was a product of the desire to be entrepreneurs. Scott and Shaun had both come from Parents of Entrepreneurs. Seeing first hand that it is possible to make something of an idea that you can bring to the world, was an advantage that is not overlooked. Precision Greens happened because our Parents gave us an opportunity to succeed. Not everyone is rewarded with this advantage and we are thankful that the stars aligned to allow us the privilege of starting, and succeeding, in the business world.
Our first big risk was moving to Las Vegas, Nevada. Scott and Shaun had quit their jobs in Calgary and, on promise of employment, moved down with most of their belongings. Although the work experiences they found were not enough to sustain a life, there was one worthwhile takeaway from this adventure; their introduction to backyard, synthetic turf golf greens. Peering into backyards from the golf courses in Nevada there were a handful of personal, residential golf greens and it blew their minds! Scott and Shaun recognized the potential of this amenity and knew there was not anyone back home in BC that was making any waves in this industry.
So, with the promise of food and shelter from Scott’s parents, Shaun and Scott traded their services in building their first “state of the art” synthetic turf golf green for Scott’s parents. It took all summer to build (including three layers of brick for a border), but it turned out well. With the addition of a 1000-watt flood light, the rest of the summer was spent winning and losing putting contests with all of our friends. (I may have a pic for this) Scott and Shaun took a picture, made a flyer and handed them out everywhere. Even Nevada Bob’s put them in their shop in exchange for the promise of a 5% referral fee. This allowed us to build 3 golf greens the following year, 14 golf greens (and 1 grass install) the year after that (as well as three total replacement projects from an incorrect base construction system they used the year before. A system that one major competitor actually still uses today) and then with 30 projects the following year we were able to quit our other jobs and start saving enough to reinvest back into the business.
Since it’s inception, Precision Greens has grown its sales every single year. What a ride it has been, and the level of projects that they have been involved in is fun to look back on. From a 9 hole pitch n’ putt in Mission, a residential football field in West Vancouver, a Soccer Pitch in South Vancouver, a miniature golf in Northern Saskatchewan (in the Boreal Rainforest) to a 7000 square foot golf green in Burnaby, there are a lifetime of memories to look back on and there is every reason to look forward to what is in store for Precision Greens and all of its Franchise Partners throughout Canada.
The most rewarding part of it all is the family that has been created at Precision Greens. None of the success would be possible without the people that have worked with Precision Greens for so many years’ now. PG is a family and everyone understands what they can contribute to make it strong, and to make it better. There is an immense amount of mutual respect and love amongst all who work here and that bleeds into the work that is produced for our Clients.
The mission of Precision Greens is to create fun and unique backyard golf environments, and pristine lawnscapes using unmatched products, workmanship, experience, and passion.
