Fake grass and artificial turf have grown in popularity in recent years for a number of critical reasons. The bottom line is one that resonates with every organization, municipality, and athletic league: money and time.
If you’re wondering why your athletic facility needs fake grass, just take a look at your organization’s bills. Every month many facilities find themselves paying hundreds, if not thousands of dollars maintaining fields and practice areas.
With fake grass, your water bill will plummet, and your need for regular maintenance can virtually disappear, reducing your bottom line and freeing up crucial time for gameplay and practice. Here are some other reasons why switching to fake grass can be beneficial for your athletic facility located in Los Angeles, Thousand Oaks, Irvine, and other cities within the greater Los Angeles area.
Fake grass does not require irrigation or sprinklers.
Most outdoor facilities require elaborate irrigation systems and a full crew to maintain the perfect green turf used for athletic purposes. With fake grass, no additional water will be needed.
ProGreen’s always green turf will look perfect without the need for water. Our products are designed to absorb and shed water at high rates, with perforated backing or our patent-pending ProFlow system. You will also avoid brown spots and the need to repair damaged grass by choosing artificial turf.
Artificial turf eliminates the need for pest control, fertilization, and herbicides.
Along with a lower water bill, facilities with artificial turf can also save money in other areas of maintenance. To keep the field ready for game day, organizations often require regular visits from pest control companies. With fake grass, that need is eliminated because bugs cannot breed or thrive in our synthetic surfaces.
Fertilization is typically required to keep athletic fields growing healthy and green. Companies will visit facilities on a schedule to ensure that grass fields are well fed and weed resistant. Fertilizer is yet another service that won’t be required with artificial turf.
With ProGreen’s synthetic grass, the need for weed control is also eliminated because weeds simply can’t grow without regular soil. The grounds will be prepared prior to installation for leveling and weed blocking purposes, which guarantees weeds will not grow through the backing of our products.
Synthetic turf is safer and can be used indoors.
On top of all of the money-saving incentives, there is an even larger motivating factor for choosing synthetic: safety.
ProGreen offers a number of products that are certified by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) who rate products based on how they protect people during falls. Depending upon which product you choose, different levels of padding can be added beneath the turf, which can protect people from head and brain injuries during falls. Regular grass or sod simply does not offer that level of protection.
Another huge benefit is that synthetic grass can be used indoors. With the increase in headlines related to heat exhaustion and even death during athletic practices, more and more organizations are bringing athletes indoors for conditioning.
Fake grass looks, feels, and performs like the real thing—even when installed indoors!
