Artificial grass for sports fields eliminates the maintenance, and the stress, of achieving a Wimbledon-worthy pitch
One tonne per year; that’s the amount of seed it takes to create those precious Wimbledon lawns each year. They have to be fertilised, watered, covered, monitored for heat and moisture, mown, top-dressed with fine soil, and kept to exactly 8mm. Now, when we hit the courts, we may not all strive for quite the perfection of Andy Murray, but each year Wimbledon highlights how much work sports fields can take. For those after a more year-round solution to the gruelling maintenance of a minutely manicured surface, artificial grass for sports fields can come to the rescue – which is why so many facilities install it every year.
Whether it’s tennis, football, hockey, golf, or rugby, repeated use can take its toll on natural grass. Bare, muddy patches in the winter result not only in a mucky kit, but give way to bare, dry patches in the summer. Hardly attractive or easy to play on. The main advantage, of course, is it doesn’t have to be mown, watered or fertilised. This saves time and energy, as well as cutting costs. Easigrass have grass products designed specifically for areas of high footfall, so no need to worry that it’ll wear through. It’s even UV protected, so it’ll stay lush and green for longer too!
Play suspended due to a water logged pitch? No longer an issue; rain drains easily through the entire Easigrass range, in addition to clever non slip technology, making it even safer. Talking of safety, here’s another massive advantage of Easigrass; the clever shockpad layer that can be installed underneath. It’s been tested and approved to offer a safe landing from small falls. Of course some falls can still result in injury, but our 25-45mm shockpad means injury is less likely.
So if you’re just in LOVE with Wimbledon’s perfect green playing surface this year, rest assured it can be achieved without the stress, the effort and the money. This is why private courts, leisure centres, schools and sports facilities have been asking us to install more and more artificial grass for sports fields – find out more here, and contact us for a quote.
