Advantages of an Artificial Turf Sports Fields

For a long time now, artificial turf has been the number one choice when it comes to professional sport installations. You will find it anywhere from football grounds to Olympic stadiums. Not only is artificial turn a great choice for athletic fields. It is also a great choice for school playgrounds and other activity centres.

An All Weather Surface

One of the top advantages of artificial turf is that it provides an all weather surface. No longer do you have to worry about muddy patches forming or the top of the grass surface wearing out. It can take a long time for grass seeds to regrow or for natural turf to take.

That is something you don’t have to worry about when it comes to artificial turn.

Durability And Saving Money

As artificial turf is many times more durable than natural grass, you don’t have to worry about it wearing out to the same extent.

If a piece of artificial grass does wear out, all you have to do is to replace it. That can be done in a matter of hours. There is no need to stop the next sporting event from taking place. Stopping a sporting event from taking place often means a loss of revenue. That is something you don’t have to worry about when it comes to artificial turf.

Artificial turf also means less maintenance. You can employ fewer groundstaff to look after your facility once you have installed artificial turf. No more cutting the grass to the perfect height every couple of days or so. And, of course, no more watering during hot weather.

Saving money on water bills is one of the main reasons both recreational and sport facilities opt for artificial turf.

Minimal Preparation Required

Although there are still some preparation required before an event, it is minimal when compared to fields with natural turf.

You will have to walk the turf to make sure that it is clean and maybe give it a quick sweep. Materials such as leaves will still fall onto the surface. Most sports require the field to be completely clear of any debris. However, this is normally the extent of the preparation required.

Inspecting the turf for damage after an event is important. Rest assured that any damaged areas are easy to replace.

Another advantage of artificial turf is that it does not require recovery time. You also don’t have to worry about fertilisers which can potentially cause allergic reactions and damage the natural environment.

Artificial Turf Does Not Need To Grow

One of the biggest problems with natural turf is that it needs to grow. It does not matter if you have ordered turf or sown seeds. You still need make sure you allow for a certain amount of time for the grass to grow or settle in.
