Sports and Athletic Fields
Dramatic Water Savings
A typical grass sports field can use over 500,000 gallons of water each year. That’s enough to fill a backyard pool almost 500 times! Making the switch from grass to synthetic turf is an easy way to save water and money for schools, parks, or sporting facilities.
Artificial grass is made from polyethylene (a type of plastic). Synthetic turf systems are specifically designed with drainage and irrigation to ensure minimal water usage. It also means that you don’t have to water, mow, or use fertilizer on it! However, some fields require infill materials like silica sand, rubber, or cork. These additives can also save water because they promote drainage and reduce compaction.
Virtually No Maintenance
Since artificial turf doesn’t need to be watered, mowed, and patched like grass does, it can dramatically reduce the amount of time and money spent on maintaining playing fields each year.
In addition to the time savings, there are huge cost-savings associated with artificial turf sports fields. Because synthetic grass is more durable and requires far less maintenance, in most cases, it works out to be less expensive than natural grass in the long run. This means that most customers will see their savings pay for the field in as little as three years.
More Durable than Natural Grass
For many facilities, artificial turf is more durable than natural grass. A natural grass field will deteriorate if used more than 3-4 days a week. While artificial turf can be used daily without issues or safety concerns.
One of the best features of artificial turf is its ability to stand up to whatever weather comes its way. Synthetic grass can be used in almost any climate without sustaining damage. And artificial grass is safer to play on after rainfall because the surface texture doesn’t change, there’s no need to worry about dealing with a muddy field.
Since it can stand up to virtually any weather condition it’s only natural that customers choose synthetic sports fields for water savings and durability in almost all climates.
Safer than Natural Grass
In addition to creating a safer play area for athletes and teams, artificial turf eliminates the need for potentially harmful pesticides and fertilizers.
The newest artificial turf fields produce less friction on human skin than real grass does. This means fewer friction burns, cuts, and other injuries that may be incurred from playing on real grass surfaces.
