16 Mar What’s The Real Cost Of An Artificial Turf Sports Field?
If you’re an athletic facility manager or athletic director at a school, you’ve likely considered switching your natural grass field to a turf one.
Artificial grass has been on many field manager’s minds over the last decade, as new technology has made it safer and easier to adapt turf to any location and need. It’s no secret that cutting out maintenance costs like watering and mowing can boost your bottom line, but the initial investment in a turf field is a big one – which is what causes many field managers to press pause.
The thing is, with artificial turf you have to consider the long-term costs savings against the upfront cost to install. If you care for and maintain your field correctly, it could last for a decade or more with only routine maintenance; the same cannot be said for natural grass.
But as with many capital projects, if you choose the best artificial grass services in your region, you’ll have a much better chance of longevity and durability for your field. That means your field will require less repair, and you’ll continue to save money.
Working with the right turf provider means understanding potential costs for your field now and in the future. For example, should you need to replace your field years down the road, what will you do with the infill material? Many fields use rubber pellets made of old tires for infill, but some of these have to go straight to the garbage dump when your field is replaced. Not only does that add harmful pollutants to the environment, but it will also cost you tens of thousands of dollars just to dispose of your infill.
Planning for costs like infill disposal or replacement is necessary when figuring out the price of a new turf field, as is factoring in costs of natural grass care over the same time. When you compare the two, it’s clear that artificial grass will be your most cost-effective choice in the long run.
