Sports on artificial grass is the way forward and here’s why; users can benefit from so many properties that artificial grass holds which natural grass does not…

  • No mowing, watering, fertilising or weeding! EVER!
  • A super durable surface which can be coupled with shock pads to create a soft surface
  • Low maintenance- which can be outsourced or completed in house. A simple ‘drag brushing’ can work wonders for sports on artificial grass.
  • Last up to 20 years! And whenever it needs resurfacing this is a much more straightforward job.
