Synthetic Turf is the most durable and environmentally friendly way to landscape athletic fields, football fields, soccer fields, batting cages, playgrounds, backyards, pool areas, and dog parks.
Parks and recreation departments along with the US military are choosing artificial grass over natural grass in public parks and areas. Cities in Dallas, Phoenix, Las Vegas and San Diego are realizing that artificial turf is environmentally friendly and has life cycle cost advantages over natural grass.
Approximately 3-5% of public high schools in the united states have converted their natural grass fields to synthetic turf. School districts, athletic directors and city recreation departments are beginning to consider using turf for common play areas, playgrounds and artificial lawns.
The upfront cost of synthetic turf can be significantly more than natural grass, but life cycle costs are dramatically lower with synthetic turf and artificial grass. Unlike natural turf, fake grass does not require water, fertilizers, weed and pest control, or mowing!
Artificial field turf is also playable 100% of the day during the entire year; so wet weather and overuse aren't a major consideration.
Artificial turf is environmentally friendly because it keeps fertilizers and chemicals out of the water supply. The city of Phoenix and Las Vegas save gas, transportation, workers wages, insurance and staffing to maintain natural grass areas.
Athletic Textiles sells fake grass turf in Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Waco, Houston, Denver, San Francisco, and other cities across the USA.
