Why You May Need The Services Of Surfacing Contractors For Artificial Grass

The reasons for installing artificial grass are incredibly varied. We have already touched on two of the most common reasons in the introduction. But there are many others, including a lot of unconventional ones. Do you have pets? An artificial lawn can be an excellent surface, especially for dogs, as they will treat it as if it is real grass, joyfully running about and playing. If you live in a city, you may not have much of a garden, but instead you may have a small balcony. You can transform your balcony with artificial grass, giving you a bit of greenery and imitating the feel of a small garden. As mentioned earlier, synthetic grass installation is primarily required for sports surfaces, and if you are a lover of golf, you can create your own putting green with artificial grass. Aside from golf putting greens and balconies, other common uses for artificial grass include playgrounds, playing surfaces, tennis courts, football pitches, spa and swimming pool surrounds, orangeries and conservatories, roofs, patios, and, of course, gardens. In fact, you will notice that a lot of sports surfaces in particular are made from artificial grass, and there are many reasons for this. Firstly, artificial grass solutions are more environmentally friendly, as there are no pesticides or CO2 emissions due to there being no weed removal or mowing required. You also don’t need to water the surface, meaning no water is wasted either. Finally, it provides exceptional playing characteristics in terms of ball roll and ball bounce, ensuring players have a high-quality experience. Rubber surfacing is definitely the solution you should be considering if you are looking for the best surface for a playground.

Fake Grass Installation For Sports Surfaces

One of the main reasons for fake grass installation for sports surfaces is because artificial turf can be played on at all times, regardless of the weather conditions. Research indicates that natural grass, on the other hand, can only be played on for an average of 250 hours per season. Despite this, artificial grass feels and looks like natural grass. You can also save a considerable amount of money by opting for an artificial grass pitch. In fact, Maidstone United FC switched to an artificial sports pitch recently to save the club from shutting down, as they were unable to keep up with the demands and expense of their natural grass pitch. Not only does artificial grass have reduced maintenance costs compared to natural grass, but you could even make an extra income as well, as it is sturdy enough to rent out to other clubs and teams when you are not using it. As mentioned, durability is not as much of a concern with artificial grass surfaces, and can withstand heavier use than a natural grass pitch. There are also a number of different options available to you with regards to the installation of artificial grass. For example, a specialised shock pad layer can be incorporated, reducing the risk of injury by absorbing the impact and cushioning the players’ joints. If you want to experience all of these benefits, talk to DCM Surfaces. We have installed many artificial grass surfaces all over the country for an array of requirements.
