16 Feb 3 Problems Natural Grass Poses For Baseball Stadiums
There was a time when sports field were all natural grass – and there’s a reason that alternatives have been developed.
For field managers, balancing player needs with facility needs can be trying; after all, your goal is to keep quality up while keeping costs down, which doesn’t always sync with what teams want.
It’s artificial grass that has helped solve this ongoing problem, particularly for baseball fields that are susceptible to more significant – and more expensive – problems. What are some of the difficulties of natural grass that turf can save you from?
Problem #1: Field Discoloration
Whether you manage a field for a high school or a professional team, neither the administration nor the fans will appreciate looking at a field that is bleached out and discolored. Whether that bleaching is due to too much sun or not enough, neither will affect artificial turf, which will always be green and uniform.
Problem #2: High Maintenance Costs
What do you have to do to keep your field from bleaching out? Perform constant maintenance, which costs time and money – a lot of it. Turf will keep your maintenance costs down by:
- Getting rid of watering
- Eliminating the need for mowing and trimming
- Cutting down on the need to replace sod
Problem #3: Uneven Surfaces
No matter how much you maintain your natural grass playing field, you’re always up against sudden holes or unlevel areas that can cause potential injury to players. With artificial turf, on the other hand, players will be protected from these common occurrences, reducing your facility’s injury rate.
