With more and more sports being played on synthetic grass and manufacturers managing to recreate real grass for tennis, football and rugby, the days of exaggerated ball bounce and the need for body protection are long gone.
We have built up good relationships with leading suppliers, which means we can always provide the right surface to match the need. As part of our recommendation, we will take into account factors like pile length, infill and yarn type. Maintenance requirements must also be considered when selecting a synthetic grass surface – they are far from maintenance-free, as first suggested.
The infill of the synthetic grass acts as a ballast and gives weight to the pile, but it also acts as a filtering system for detritus falling from the air and surrounding vegetation. The infill can also become compacted if it’s not properly maintained, blocking porosity and affecting all aspects of the surface like bounce, ball roll and speed. With effective maintenance and housekeeping though, the surface can be a good investment and provide years of enjoyable and quality use.
