Premier: Many community facilities and municipalities have the need to support multiple sporting and recreational needs but have limited time and money for maintenance and repairs. Specifically, schools have a particular need of resources to maintain their grass fields since football is a very popular sport within levels of middle schools and high schools. Due to the nature of the sport of football, natural grass fields are put under the duress of athletes that are constantly sprinting, tackling, and breaking away on the field during practice and official gameplay. As a result, natural grass fields require regular maintenance and repair so that the surface is safe and level enough for intense competitive play, and deliver the characteristics that athletes demand from a standard field.
High Costs of Maintaining Real Grass
After a period of time, contact sports activities performed on natural grass will change the shape and overall condition of the grass, restricting how often the players can play and practice. In fast contact sports, natural grass will receive a great deal of pounding, scrapping, gouging, skidding, sliding and general punishment. This will require more attention to the special needs of keeping real grass green and healthy, costing property owners a lot of money in replacement and general maintenance.
For outdoor football stadium-style arenas, climate conditions will take it's toll on any field with real grass. In heavy rain, fields with real grass will experience pooling in low spots, and even turn to mud if there are thin or bald areas of the grass. Moreover, if there is a football game on a natural field while it's raining, the toll placed on the surface will make conditions even worse, and will result in replacing or replanting sections of the grass once the weather clears.
Advantages of Artificial Turf
A thick foam pad provides a cushion over the floor surface that makes turf ideal for strength and conditioning areas in any football sports facility. Artificial turf is specifically suited for indoor sports facilities that emphasize strength and speed events.
Rain or shine, athletes will have an excellent playing surface for playing and practicing football. Artificial turf allows any playing field to be ideal for playing during rainy days.
