Carmel High School to Receive Artificial Grass Fields

Carmel High School in Carmel, Illinois will be receiving a new synthetic turf grass field on three athletic fields at the high school, reports Current in Carmel. According to the article, the $1.9 million contract will include two practice fields and a soccer field. The project is expected to be completed in June.

According to the article, the school district decided to replace natural grass fields with artificial lawn turf because it will extend practice time. For example, natural grass fields are usually “unusable in late fall and early spring,” however synthetic fields make it possible for athletes to play and practice “anytime the temperature is above 30 degrees.” The article also lists three reasons the new fields will be superior to natural grass playing fields. According to the article, the new fields will prevent cancellations, avoid injuries, and remain intact during practice time.

But Carmel High School is not the only school in the nation that has invested in fake turf. In fact, a growing number of schools are already enjoying the benefits of synthetic turf playing fields. At Artificial Turf Supply, we’ve manufactured the best quality athletic turf on the market. What’s more, we make it easy and affordable for schools across the nation to invest in artificial turf.  Along with fast delivery services, our prices are extremely low. That’s because we are manufacturer direct retailer of synthetic turf. To learn more about athletic turf or to get a quote for artificial grass prices for your project, please contact us today.

Wisconsin Schools Embrace Artificial Grass

The Appleton Area School District in Appleton, Wisconsin has been approved for a fundraising project that includes several new synthetic grass fields, PostCrescent.com reports. According to the article, the $3.3 million project will replace grass fields used at two schools with synthetic turf. The fields will be used by various sports teams, including soccer, football, baseball, and softball.

Appleton schools are not the only institutions saying yes to fake grass. There are many reasons why schools and sports clubs around the nation are replacing natural grass fields with synthetic turf grass. Synthetic turf is more durable and lasts longer than natural grass, even under heavy wear and use. According to the article, while the natural grass fields get about 100 hours of use per year, the synthetic turf fields will get about 2,000 hours of use per year.

Another main reason synthetic turf is a popular alternative to natural grass playing fields is cost.  A typical synthetic turf field lasts 10 to 12 years, which means schools and athletic clubs don’t have to invest in yearly costs to grow or repair grass. Institutions that install athletic synthetic turf will also save money on irrigation and maintenance costs. This is because fake grass doesn’t require water or regular lawn care.

At Artificial Turf Supply, we carry quality synthetic grass designed for athletic fields. Our turf is durable and made to withstand outdoor elements including rain and UV rays. To learn more, please contact one of the leading artificial turf manufacturers in the industry – Artificial Turf Supply.

Artificial Grass Grows Strong During Droughts

At Artificial Turf Supply, we’ve always touted the eco-friendly benefits of artificial grass, including the fact that it’s a water-wise landscaping solution for places that are prone to drought. And now a recent article in the Huffington Post confirms what we have been saying all along.

The Huffington Post reports that the Southwest regions of the U.S. including California, Texas, and New Mexico are experiencing major droughts once again. In the beginning of this year, the governor of California declared a State of Emergency due to the drought. As a result, many homeowners in these areas are turning to synthetic lawns as a way to conserve water without losing their beautiful yards. Even state laws are changing to accommodate the trend. According to the article, homeowners in Texas are now allowed to install synthetic turf “no matter where they live in the state.”

If you live in a drought-prone area of the U.S., it’s important to consider your part in conserving this precious resource. Fake grass makes it possible for homeowners and businesses to keep their lush yards without harming the environment or wasting water. Depending on where you live, you might even be eligible for grass replacement rebate programs in your area.

If you live in California, Texas, or New Mexico and would like to install fake grass, Artificial Turf Supply can help. We offer beautiful residential synthetic grass designed for landscaping homes.

Rogers Centre to Update Artificial Grass Field

Although the Blue Jays have been playing on synthetic turf grass for a while now, the popular baseball team will be enjoying an upgraded turf field for its 2014 season. Bluebird Banter reports that Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada plans to buy artificial turf infill to soften the existing turf. According to the article, the new layer will help give the turf bounce, assist with drainage, and support the fake blades.

In addition to upgrading the current turf, Rogers Centre plans to install brand new synthetic turf for its 2015, 2016, and 2017 seasons. Artificial grass prices are much cheaper than natural grass turf. Athletic-grade synthetic turf has been designed with safety and durability in mind. According to the article, the upgrade to the current athletic turf will extend the life of the turf long enough to last until the team installs the new surface in 2015.

The Blue Jays are not the only sports team that plays on synthetic turf. By offering high-quality wholesale artificial turf, our company has helped provide athletic-grade synthetic turf for many athletic facilities across the nation. We’ve also installed artificial grass fields for universities, high schools and elementary schools.

Murrieta City Park to Receive New Artificial Grass Fields

Artificial grass is becoming a popular choice for parks and athletic fields across the nation. And now, yet another city has opted to replace natural grass sports fields with synthetic turf. The Press Enterprise reports that Murrieta plans to replace two grass fields at Los Alamos Hills Sports Park with synthetic turf. According to the article, the park will receive one synthetic turf soccer field and one synthetic turf football field. Construction is scheduled to start in April and should be completed by July 2014.

According to the article, the city decided to install an artificial lawn to “save money on maintenance.” They plan to save $10,000 per field per year just by not having to irrigate the natural grass fields. They will also be saving $5,400 on mowing, and $13,500 per field each year on repairing torn-up grass after each season of heavy duty traffic.

Another reason they opted for fake grass fields is because it will be a “reduction in down time.” With natural grass, the city usually closes the fields at least 60 to 90 days a year to repair the fields. However, with synthetic turf, the park will be open year-round.

Murrieta City is just one more example of why so people prefer fake grass over natural grass fields. Are you ready to make the switch? Artificial Turf Supply carries athletic-grade artificial grass at wholesale prices. We invite you to explore the benefits of fake grass for sports fields including soccer, football, and hockey.

Fake grass is being used as a safe and durable playing surface for schools across the country, including a very lucky elementary school in San Francisco.
