02 Mar Should High Schools Switch To Artificial Grass For Sports Fields?
Many top professional sports teams across the country have chosen artificial turf for their playing field surface, and now many high school field managers and athletic directors are starting to do the same.
High school fields have been some of the slowest converters to turf, in part because the technology wasn’t quite up to the standards of keeping children safe. But all that has changed in recent years, with newer technology allowing for the use of safe artificial turf in playing fields for children of any age. These are three benefits of new turf technology that will help high school players reach their full potential.
- A Safer Surface
Nowadays, newly installed turf is created with player safety in mind, which means more durability and a supportive surface for falls or slips. For high schools, ongoing maintenance of fields may not always be an option, which leaves grass susceptible to forming pools and divots. Artificial turf, on the other hand, will retain its look and feel throughout its lifetime.
While natural grass may be alive, it requires the use of harmful chemicals to keep it that way. From fertilizers to weedkillers to pesticides, the products you use to keep natural grass looking good can actually be harming players.
- Lower Cost
Maintaining an artificial grass field is far less expensive than it is to care for a natural grass one. Turf doesn’t require watering, which significantly reduces your utility bills, and it doesn’t require mowing, which frees up field staff and saves on the need for outside contractors.
