Physical activity is good for your health. That is an irrefutable fact. Sports, whether individual or team sports, make for a better well rounded person. Not only are sports good for the body but for the mind as well. They improve mood and the camaraderie shared in and out of training interaction. Not to mention sports are fun! So it is that synthetic turf sports surfaces are becoming ever more popular because their adaptable existence means more sport is possible no matter the weather.
Indeed it's a little disheartening when people cannot play because the surface field is not well maintained. I remember turning up at 8am one Saturday morning with my son to play soccer in Willoughby, on Sydney's lower north shore, only to find a single, yet massive hole in the ground at the exact spot where a goalie would stand. It was deep, and half full of water. It was a sunny day and the kids were raring to play. But the game had to be called off! Getting up at 6am to be there, the parents were very unhappy indeed! With the size of the field, be it a soccer or football, dependable green grass is needed for traction and safety. On that occasion, as with many others, a synthetic turf sports surface would have been a welcome solution.
Here is a list of sports you can play on synthetic turf:
Synthetic turf is intended to have the same attributes as natural grass. It makes for a suitable playing surface for any of the above sports. Synthetic turf has quickly turned into an in-demand commodity for recreational facilities and colleges. Even professional leagues are switching to this more dependable option. They feel it is more reliable as it cuts down costs in maintenance. Conserving water is very important and with fields of larger size it becomes more apparent that switching is the ideal choice. It also saves on fertiliser and pesticide costs, not to mention hold off on the ill effects those artificial poisons have on our health.
No muddy fields even when it rains frequently. With synthetic turf, even with heavy foot traffic the grass remains appealing and functional.

Being outdoors is one of the highlights of anyone’s day. It is quite like drinking coffee. You remember how it should feel like. Then you anticipate how it smells like before the dark liquid touches your tongue. That is how someone looks forward to being outdoors. You expect to get some sun, remembering the warmth and seeing some sights on the way to your destination. Perhaps see a friend or two in that nice cafe where the grass always looks perfect. And something seems different. You are not sneezing! It is pollen season and you are okay. That’s new.
Believe it or not, that great looking turf usually is artificial grass. That makes a lot of sense. In this climate, using artificial turf is one of the best decisions you could make. And with environmental concerns like conserving water in mind, it makes sense to use synthetic grass to make your place more attractive. Even with heavy foot traffic, it will withstand wear and tear.
In both personal and professional aspects, we always want to look good and be presentable.. Same goes for our surroundings. To be taken seriously, our area, spaces, commercial spaces that we occupy need to look professional and well cared for. A lush, green, well manicured lawn increases your property’s value. It also impresses almost everybody that walks by. A raggedy patch creates a negative impression that could make people skeptical on how you do your business. If your business is managing theirs, this could spell mistrust and trouble. Switching to artificial turf can also lessen allergy related problems from pollen and other allergy agents.
And what is not to love with artificial grass? They are so easy to maintain. It is safe for the environment. It takes less water to keep it clean, it is always lush. It does not use petrol for the mower and even less on the upkeep with fertilizers, pesticides, the works. The best part is, it costs less than what you would normally spend in the long run and looks better than you could possibly hope for longer. And with less tedious work to maintain and worry about it. It’s a win-win.
Australian weather is a shifting combination of moderate levels of cool and hot. It moves its seasons changing from winter to summer. The ocean has a lot to do with this climate, softly changing temperatures as local weather transitions from January to July. This gentle shift with no extreme, sudden changes makes switching to synthetic grass a prudent decision.
Synthetic grass makes your spaces look truly lush and restful.
For Melbourne household yards, it will mean less time to mow and tame the yard. Less use of the mower, less fuel consumption, more time to do the things you like. Grow a vegetable garden, watch more television, fix the odds and ends lined up in the garage. You would have more time to hang out and appreciate the less demanding greenery.
For schools and commercial properties, a vibrant looking space invites confidence in dealings with clients, parents and business associates. Using synthetic grass will not only keep your green spaces looking lush and green but save you water, too. Maintaining synthetic grass in Sydney is quite easy except when there are pets involved. Hosing down the area once or twice a week should be enough to clean your artificial grass. If properly maintained, your synthetic grass in Sydney weather should last 20 years give or take, depending on foot traffic. Water bill, down. Maintenance cost, down. Emissions from mower, pesticides and fertilizers, down.
Synthetic grass is an attractive addition to any surface that proves problematic for growing real grass. Large areas where little feet play can be perfect for synthetic grass installation. There will be fewer insects and pests as this is not their natural habitat. There is also less worry if your child likes to play in the rain as there will be no muddy feet to track your beautifully tiled floor.
For bigger terrains like playgrounds and football fields, synthetic grass will hardly have dips or bumps that might cause slips and falls. It drains and dries faster than regular grass. On hot sunny days it can be hotter than normal but why would children play in such hot weather, best to have it cool down a bit.
We are not able to watch our children all the time. And face it, their energy seems to be limitless. Even if we're able to keep an eye on them, we rarely have the same energy to follow them around everywhere. Especially on playgrounds and day care soft play parks where there is a smattering of little humans with the same boundless joy jumping with their little hands and feet at all angles. Playgrounds are frequently a place where unexpected accidents happen to our mini-me's.
That's why increasingly many playgrounds use soft fall rubber surfaces to prevent small accidents from being big ones that require hospitalisation. Most playground injuries are caused by falls. Whether they're from unsafe playground equipment or the natural exuberance of children tagging, pushing other kids, or simply losing their grip as they extend the experiments of play vs gravity, soft fall rubber installations are able to help absorb most of the impact from the fall. Sprains, cuts, bruises and broken bones are among the most recorded injuries from incorrect landings, kids' rowdiness and mishaps, and without soft fall rubber surfaces, children often face more serious injuries.
Old age facilities are another area where soft fall rubber surfaces can be even of life-saving value. Because of their advanced age, old people tend to have poorer eyesight and cannot see obstructions in their path. Even if they see them, it can be too late. Their reflexes are not as sharp and reaction times have increased. This can cause them to stumble and fall which can lead to injury, even death. Indeed it’s often falls which precipitate steep declines in health in people who are most frail.
Schools and learning structures also benefit from soft fall rubber surfacing. Wet-poured rubber enables the incorporation of bright colours which champion the facility's brand colours, or can be a learning tool like the map of Australia pictured here, or created as a chess board to encourage intellectual pursuits. The possibilities are endless. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, such wet pour soft fall rubber surfaces are functional as well. They also guarantee versatility, durability and reduced liability costs.
Gyms, dojos and even household residences can request quotes of piecework rubber tiles or poured-in-place rubber. This can be for their outdoor sections, play cubby holes or reception areas. We offer a manufacturer's 7-year warranty on all our products and soft fall rubber installations.
Being environmentally friendly is all the rage nowadays. Going green and lessening carbon footprint to help mother Earth. Natural beats artificial in almost any respect. That is, until you really do your homework. When one is confronted with the word ‘artificial’ almost everybody will say it’s no good and that it shouldn’t be so easy to mess up this world. There is a big enough problem with plastic and non-biodegradable stuff that we should not be adding artificial grass and turf into the mix.
But artificial turf is better than you think it is. It is not entirely true that it cannot be recycled. There are artificial grasses that are made using recyclable elements. And at the end of its life, what cannot be recycled can be melted and formed into new merchandise.
Maintaining grass requires water. Water that is fast becoming a depleting resource. Real grass need lots of it. The same is not true for artificial grass except when cleaning or when pets do their business there. For the hot days it may need to be cooled down but that is not a daily thing. You can pretty much leave it alone. It also does not need to be mowed thereby reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions. One less household contributing to pollution.
For rainy seasons there will be less mud to be tracked around when using synthetic grass. It is not slippery when wet. So less chances of fall if your children love playing under the rain. There is also no reason to use fertilizers, pesticides and weed killers to maintain and protect your artificial turf. Over time these pesticides seep into the ground and be potentially harmful when it reaches the water supply eve damage lakes, rivers and the fish and creatures living there.
Artificial grass will seldom have pests and undesirables living in it. This is good news, less bugs, fleas, ticks and wasps. The lesser bugs there are, the lesser frogs there will be. And doesn’t your lawn look better with green grass complementing your flowers?
