Area Company is Changing the Landscape of Lawns 5

No Project Too Big or Too Small for Summit Flooring and Turf

Angela Grego, owner of Summit Flooring and Turf, knows what it’s like to take a gamble. During the height of the recession, she left an established career and headed for ‘greener’ pasture; literally. “My husband Kirk saw a need in the Midwest for synthetic grass, and once I met the family behind the brand of SYNLawn, it became an easy decision for me to branch into this area with synthetic lawns.” Grego’s gamble paid off.

Today, Summit Flooring and Turf located at 1051 SE Century Drive in Lee’s Summit, has solidified themselves as a viable business in the community. The SYNLawn division, which is synthetic turf, is proud to be in several dog facilities around the metro area including Kennel Creek and Wayside Waifs. Working directly with several local school districts, they have SYNLawn installed on the playgrounds at many area schools. Some of the local parks and recreation departments have worked with Grego’s business for their playgrounds as well as problem areas where they have trouble growing grass. However, the dynamic aspect of Summit Flooring and Turf is the diversity and a ‘no limitation’ of where one may want synthetic grass installed.

Grego says the residential market in greater Kansas City area have grasped the value of synthetic turf. She adds, “We’ve done backyard golf putting greens, dog runs, ground covering under homeowners play sets, and many a basement golf or softball/baseball project with our synthetic turf.”

Pro golfer Tom Watson, who has captured 39 PGA Tour victories, numerous titles and golfed world-wide, had SYNLawn installed at his residence in southern Johnson County. “Tom says the ball comes out just the way he wants it to, just like it’s a real green,” Grego recalls with her conversation with the golfer. In addition, Summit Flooring and Turf is the exclusive synthetic grass supplier of the Kansas City Golf Show.

With regard to the indoor flooring side of the business, Grego’s showroom offers anything a consumer would desire in the flooring. Samples of hardwood, ceramic and porcelain tile, cork, luxury vinyl, and more are displayed for easy shopping. They are also one of only three suppliers in the metro area to carry the high end Karastan carpet. They offer an environment that is shopper friendly with small isles and an easy flow to the space. The store is open Monday through Saturdays and Sundays by appointment, however times vary so it is best to consult their website for times of operation.

Grego is excited about the future of synthetic grass, believes it’s here to stay, and that consumers are embracing this changing landscape. She’s honored to be a part of the changing industry. “With respect to the environment, we take pride in leaving a small footprint, but lasting memories,” says Grego.
