A traditional grass field can put players at a higher risk for injuries. The soft, synthetic blades and structural padding of an artificial turf acts as an added layer of protection upon impact.
A synthetic turf field is an investment that pays off in short order in both time, and money. Hours spent mowing, painting, watering and fertilizing would no longer be a need of the school district. This can lead to a cost savings of approximately $20,000 annually!
A synthetic turf field is versatile and durable. Turf fields can be used daily, in all kinds of weather with no rest or recovery time. Spring softball and baseball practices, physical education classes, band showcases, and football games for high school and youth teams can utilize the playing surface with no concerns of field recovery time.
Upgrading to a synthetic turf will make a positive impact on our environment, along with yet another added safety measure for our students. The elimination of pesticides and fertilizer treatments, and the elimination of irrigation are not only an environmental benefit, but also a cost savings measure. The school district spends over $5000 annually on irrigation costs alone.
