It used to be the only sports venues that utilized artificial turf were domed stadiums that couldn’t grow natural grass. As the years have gone on though, more and more professional and college teams have made the switch to artificial turf. There are many reasons why as well, beyond just the environmental ones. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why artificial turf in West Palm Beach has grown in popularity.
The environmental benefits that go along with artificial turf are quite impressive. In addition to the obvious less water usage, the lack of mowing and pesticides required also have major environmental effects. For example, a push mower emits as much pollution in one hour as 11 cars. A riding mower emits as much as 34 cars. Common pesticides and fertilizers can cause water pollution. Artificial turf requires none of those things.
This one is particularly important in south Florida where it rains pretty much every day in the summertime. A hard rainstorm can turn a natural grass field into an unplayable mud pit. With artificial turf, the field remains playable even in the most extreme conditions. Not only does this result in less maintenance that is required, but also fewer game cancellations and less field damage.
