by | Aug 15, 2016 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

If you are considering having artificial grass installed at your sports club or school/college field then you may not be 100% aware of the benefits it offers. There are a number of advantages that having an artificial grass sports field offers, we’re going to take a look at just a few of them so you can make an informed decision when you make your choice.

FOOTBALL PITCHES

Artificial grass has a long history in football and has came a long way over the years to the point that it is used in top level FIFA matches. The surface is perfect for areas that suffer harsh weather conditions that might otherwise render the pitch unplayable, but with artificial grass the games can usually go ahead. The porous surface allows water to drain away rapidly, reducing the chance of waterlogging. The surface is easily maintained and can be played on much more regularly, meaning a number of local team can use the field, even over the course of one day, with no adverse affect.

BOWLS

The green in bowls is of huge importance, artificial grass provides a consistent and easily maintained surface that will cut down on the time you have to spend manicuring it. It also stays looking fantastic throughout the year so you can impress visitors the whole year round. A lot of bowling clubs choose to have artificial grass installed just on their bankings as they are a particularly difficult area to maintain.

RUGBY

The benefits of artificial grass for rugby are similar to those mentioned above for football, however, rugby pitches come under greater wear and tear, particularly with scrums. Having an artificial grass field means it will not become torn up and require maintenance following every game. Artificial grass has been used at the top level of club rugby in Scotland so there is no doubting its quality and usefulness for the sport.

GOLF

Artificial grass is fantastic for use in golf, particularly in practice areas. Many people opt to have an artificial grass putting area installed in their gardens so they can practise whenever they have a spare half hour.
