Getting to know the differences between synthetic turf and natural grass fields will help you make an informed decision about which type of playing surface will work best for your particular wants and needs. At Accurate Fieldhouse, we understand how big of an impact a playing surface can have on any type of sport. That is why both of our indoor fields are always maintained to the highest standards.
The Benefits of Synthetic Turf Fields
Some of the main benefits synthetic turf fields have to offer include:
One of the biggest benefits that synthetic turf fields have to offer is the minimal level of maintenance required for keeping the field in pristine condition. Since artificial grass does not require monthly landscaping maintenance, such as fertilizer, mowing, and watering, but only needs to be rinsed and brushed every now and then, synthetic turf fields are always ready to be used, right when you need them.
Higher Traffic Allowance
High-quality artificial grass fields have an unparalleled life expectancy, as the blades will stay soft, supple, and attractive season after season, not matter the amount of heavy traffic the field sees. Even though synthetic turf is not immune to rips or tears, this type of athletic field does not require time to rest in between games, even after a heavy rainfall.
The Benefits of Natural Grass Fields
Some of the benefits of natural grass fields are:
Helps with Air Quality
Since natural grass can help trap carbon dioxide, produce oxygen, and break down pollutants in the air, natural grass fields can be a great way to help improve the air quality, especially in large cities with lots of pollution.
Does Not Overheat
Unlike synthetic turf, which is known for retaining heat on hot summer days, natural grass often has water running through it, retaining a higher moisture level and reducing the amount of heat being trapped. This means that, even on the hottest summer days, playing on natural grass lowers the risk of burns and heat stroke.
