Turf Wars: Natural or Artificial?
Are you debating whether to top your next sports field with synthetic or natural turf? Although artificial turf does not need mowing, pesticides or herbicides, it does require regular brushing disinfecting, cleaning and topping up of the base. Turf grass can be more aesthetically pleasing and environmentally sound, purifying and protecting water, soil and air, but it also requires watering and proper maintenance to look and feel great. This presentation looks at the pros and cons of natural and artificial turf from a community that extensively explored this million-dollar decision.
