Synthetic turf fields provide numerous advantages over natural grass. As compared to natural grass, synthetic turf has a significant decrease in maintenance costs.
Moreover, other benefits such as versatility of multiple activities i.e. Jamborees,
Intramurals, Band Competitions, etc. as well as the ability to utilize the field while raining has led to the adoption of synthetic turf fields.
An additional advantage of a synthetic turf system is its ability to have outstanding
drainage with the capability to play in all-weather conditions.
The turf component is made up of turf fibers, backing, and a coating system. The main components of the sub
drainage system are the capstone layer, free-draining base aggregate layer, and the perforated collector pipe, and
geotextile fabric layer.
