Why Artificial Grass is Perfect for Athletic Facilities

The benefits of artificial turf for outdoor spaces are well known. From its enhanced aesthetic appeal to the extreme durability and functionality it offers, synthetic grass is the ideal landscaping option for a range of outdoor uses. Sacramento health clubs and training facilities are taking advantage of artificial turf’s visual appeal and functionality in order to create a workout and training space that can accommodate any type of workout and even improve athletic performance. Here are four types of athletic facilities that are perfect for durable artificial grass landscaping. 

Indoor Athletic Facilities

Whether it’s a batting cage, an athletic field, or a conditioning gym, transform your facility with high-performing synthetic turf products. Our synthetic turf is extremely durable, low maintenance, and safer for athletes than natural grass. Synthetic turf’s polyethylene material means that your indoor field can stay neat, clean, and evergreen all year round without any need for sunlight, watering, mowing, or other constant maintenance requirements. You also don’t need to repaint your field’s lines on a weekly basis, saving you significant time and hassle. Antimicrobial infill also helps keep the field softer underfoot and more sanitary for your athletes. An optional protective foam underlayer can offer even further support by creating a softer and safer solution that protects from impact injuries and falls. For a safe, low-maintenance solution that keeps your indoor facility looking vibrant and beautiful, choose artificial grass for your indoor sports field.

Outdoor Sports Fields

Artificial grass is hugely beneficial for indoor athletic facilities due to is low maintenance, but it’s equally as beneficial for outdoor sports fields as well. With an artificial grass sports field, you never have to worry about watering, mowing, fertilizing, or re-sodding your field again. You can let athletes trample the field for hours, days, and weeks on end without worrying about dead patches or uneven growth. Synthetic turf’s excellent drainage also helps ensure that your field will never be muddy. In addition to the lack of natural soil that causes mud, our turf products drain at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard, so games during the rain are never a problem. Regardless of the weather, you can have a pristine athletic field with no mud, flooding, or dead patches. Whether you have a football field, a soccer field, a baseball diamond, or a multipurpose athletic field, artificial grass is the perfect outdoor landscaping solution.
