This is a sign which can be attached to fencing or gates which details how you can look after your astro turf surface, we think it helps spread the word to everyone including facilities managers to players and passers-by.

The team were at Colmers School this week in Birmingham where we revamped their sports surface into a band new school 3G pitch and provided them with the finishing touch of a rules board to display.
A 3G surface is artificial grass carpet which is infilled with a combination or sand and rubber crumb. This can then be designed with sports markings; with football being the most popular. In August-September 2018, we completed a new pitch for this Birmingham School:
Specialist machinery is always used to provide the best overall result
A rubber pad acts as the underlay for this 3G pitch
Artificial grass carpet is cut, glued and laid on top of the rubber padding
The complete surface
As 3G is a little different to the ordinary artificial turf products, it requires its own set of rules. We have some great ones here at STM, but you can adapt and make them your own if you wish.
The main 3G pitch rules are:
Sticking to this means that your 3G surface will look newer for longer.
