Natural, synthetic or hybrid grass?
Natural grass offers the player the ideal playing surface up to 6 hours a week, but requires high maintenance to withstand environmental stress (humid-hot weather and frost). Some reinforcement systems increase the number of hours usage to a maximum of 12 hours per week, but the maintenance cost increases even more. This is the most frequent choice of some professional clubs that can have a large budget for field maintenance, for the first and possibly the second team.
For young players and for the major of amateurs clubs, the choice is often oriented to synthetic turf, to support a greater amount of playing hours and reduce maintenance costs. The surface is “always” playable but the ball runs faster and the player is slower because he loses the shoe-surface interaction; heat stress during sunny days increases the risk of premature fatigue and burns in the event of a fall.
The hybrid grass POWERgrass offers an improved alternative in both cases! The hybrid grass POWERgrass is not a simple carpet to "bury" in the sand layer to “reinforce” natural grass! It includes a playable synthetic turf, suitable for natural grass growth, and the ZEOcork additive to be mixed with sand to provide a soft playing surface, mitigate environmental stress and little maintenance of natural grass. It really enhances the quality and safety of the natural grass and combines the resistance and low maintenance of synthetic turf providing talor made, ideal traction, stability and softness.
Maintenance of the POWERgrass system requires basic skills and low but constant care and, in return, offers a lifespan for a generation. It is a eco-sustainable project that offers Quality & Savings compared to other solutions available to ... play "Always" with or without natural grass.
