Vancouver is home to some of the lower mainland’s nicest recreational spaces. Here are two reasons why you should consider using artificial turf in Vancouver on your fields. Studies show that natural grass simply cannot remain lush and resilient if used more than three to four days a week, in snow or drought, or during months when grass doesn’t grow. This, coupled with an escalating need for durable fields that accommodate multiple teams and activities, the high cost of maintaining a grass sports field or landscaping, and the need to conserve water, has prompted a rising number of schools, parks, and municipalities to turn to artificial turf to meet their needs.
Artificial grass in Vancouver Island, South Vancouver, West Vancouver, and Vancouver, is far more durable than natural grass. When it comes to sports like soccer and football, natural grass should not be used more than 20 – 24 hours per week or 680 – 816 hours per year.
Whether you are a coach or school director nothing is more important than player or student well-being. At the forefront of our product development, we consider the safety and performance of our turfs. Research has shown that the risk of injury is no different on high-quality artificial turf than natural grass.
Our final reason why we recommend artificial grass in Vancouver for your fields is that artificial turf athletic fields are versatile and can endure heavy use. After events, natural turf or grass will need a period of recovery before another game can be played on it. If you are organizing several consecutive sporting events to take place on the field, this recovery time can limit or interfere with your arrangements. However, while natural turf fields are able to withstand about 100 event hours of use, artificial turf fields can endure well over 500 event hours. For a multi-purpose field with frequent events and games, artificial turf is often the best solution. It requires zero recovery time and is ready to go as soon as your team is ready.
