Artificial turf has increasingly become a popular alternative to traditional grass for sports fields, for a variety reasons. This synthetic grass offers numerous advantages that make it the preferred option for both athletes and those responsible for managing the fields. Its durability, versatility, safety, and environmental advantages make it a superior choice, and because at Mesa Artificial Turf we offer only the best quality turf products in the business, the choice is a no brainer especially in Arizona's unforgivingly hot and dry climate.
Durability is a major advantage of artificial turf. Natural grass is easily damaged by Mother Nature, sporting equipment, and the heavy foot traffic and intense usage that sports fields see. Artificial turf, on the other hand, is designed to withstand the constant, heavy usage that comes with sports such as football, baseball, soccer, and field hockey. Especially when combined with proper maintenance, the durability of artificial turf ensures that the field will stay in tip top shape for extended periods of time.
Maintaining artificial turf is considerably more environmentally friendly, with considerably less water usage and carbon emissions involved when compared to natural grass. Large, open areas of grass such as sports fields especially require an incredible amount of water to keep in good condition, which is the last thing you want in a drought prone region, and has the added bonus of reducing your water bill. Artificial grass also does not require the fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides for maintenance like natural grass does, so there are no worries about these harmful chemicals seeping out into the environment. Similarly, artificial turf offers financial advantages due to the elimination of the ongoing costs of mowing, watering, fertilizing, and pest control. The initial investment of purchasing and installing the turf may be more, but as long as it is taken care of properly, it is an investment that is sure to pay off in the long run.
People often scratch their heads about the materials which artificial turf is made from, questioning how good they are for the environment, especially when the turf reaches the end of its lifespan and needs to be disposed of. Fortunately, with advancements in technology, the latest artificial turf products are actually quite environmentally friendly. They are made with materials which are sustainable and recyclable, ensuring a minimal impact on the environment.
Last but not least, artificial turf is safer for athletes than natural grass. Over time, natural grass becomes uneven, with divots and rough spots. It also is prone to becoming muddy after periods of heavy rain, with increased slip hazards for athletes. Artificial turf, on the other hand, keeps a uniformly even playing surface no matter what, and is designed so that water drains quickly and efficiently, eliminating worries about patches of standing water. Not only does this reduce the risk of trips and falls, but it ensures that athletes can train and play to the best of their abilities. Also, artificial turf fields are equipped with shock absorbing technology underneath the turf, making falls less harsh than if it were on a regular field. As such, athletes can play with more confidence than ever before.
