Summary: Athletic Facilities need grass that can endure high traffic and reduce the risk of injury. Using synthetic lawns can dramatically decrease your upkeep cost by thousands of dollars a year.
If your own an athletic facility, you probably have a field. If you have a field, you probably have to mow it and water it. If you water it, you’re probably handing over your right leg in utility bills, especially if you operate in a particularly dry climate. But what if you didn’t have to pay hundreds of dollars a year to upkeep your field? What if over the next ten years, you really didn’t have to do anything?
Synthetic lawns are an incredibly low-cost solution to having a beautiful landscape with relatively little upkeep. The installation of natural grass appears cheaper than synthetic turf. A reasonable price for installing natural grass runs at about $125,000, while synthetic grass installation runs at about $410,000. However, when you include the cost of maintenance and the need for re-sodding every three years, you have a heavy expense on your hands. Maintenance for natural grass runs at a whopping $40,300 per year, while maintenance for synthetic grass only amounts to $3,300 annually. The re-sodding bill will come to about $375,000 every three years. So if you compare the two options, after ten years you will have invested $903,000 in your natural lawn, whereas you could be only paying $433,000 if you invested in an artificial one. That’s not much more than what you paid to install it.
Using an artificial lawn in an athletic facility over natural grass is even more imperative as a choice, as athletic facilities experience even higher traffic than a lawn in front of a house. This turf is designed to be incredibly durable, withstanding 10 times more traffic than a natural grass field. Again, no watering, weeding or mowing is needed, keeping costs low and giving you the freedom to invest in more productive things. Instead of working around the schedule of when you are allowed to water your field, plan events using fake grass at any time. This freedom from restriction is necessary in areas with extreme weather.
Take a moment to compare the benefits of artificial grass compared to natural grass in addition to saving you money. Natural grass requires recovery after events, rainfall and watering. Natural grass is only able to sustain 10% of the activity synthetic grass can sustain. Natural grass is prone to yellowing in patches, where artificial grass retains its color. The rubber infill of fake grass softens impact and improves traction for reported 40% fewer injuries. Synthetic grass can also be insured for 8 years, with a 10 year warranty, where with using natural grass, you’re really just trying your luck. Artificial grass is clearly the better choice.
