What sports can be played on artificial turf?
All types of sports can be played on synthetic turf. Backyard putting greens are one of the most popular residential applications, but golf isn’t the only sport for which you can use artificial turf. You can play tennis, baseball, soccer, football, and more on synthetic turf. Our turf is high-quality and doesn’t affect sports performance.
How well does synthetic turf drain?
One of the best things about artificial turf is its superior draining abilities. There are small holes in the backing, which lets the water drain through to the subsoil. The subsoil comprises absorbent material, typically crushed rubble or gravel. When it rains, the base can “store” extra water, and this water seeps slowly through to the integrated draining pipes underneath.
