Most people know of the growth of artificial turfed sports pitches. The English Rugby Union are financially supporting the installation of 100’s of full size pitches for club and community use across the UK. The increased popularity of artificial turfs is not without good reason. There are quite a number of huge benefits of using artificial grass on a sporting arena and also within the commercial and educational sector, as nurseries, schools and colleges install them.
Reduced Watering Needs
It goes without saying that an artificial grass pitch or play area will not require as much water as natural grass does. This is primarily because artificial turfs do not grow.
Water has an important role to play in the maintenance of certain types of artificial turfs. In most cases, water is required for cleaning and cooling of artificial turfs. However, the amount of water used on an artificial turf is significantly less than that required for maintenance of natural grass playing fields.
Artificial Grass Require Less Maintenance
The fact that artificial grass require less maintenance is also among the huge benefits of artificial grass. The reduced maintenance needs of an area if artificial grass are seen in several ways. For one, artificial mowing is not necessary for an artificial grass and neither is the application of fertiliser. Typical maintenance for an artificial turf involves regular cleaning to eliminate fallen leaves and such-like debris, and disinfection to remove stains from the surface of the turf and to prevent the growth of moss and algae.
It would not be appropriate to conclude a discussion on the huge benefits of astro turf / artificial grass without mentioning that the use of these turfs is good for the environment.
