Towns, schools, and recreational centers are all eventually faced with the question, “Should we install astroturf flooring or artificial grass?” To make an informed decision, you need to be aware of the differences and you need to understand what your goals for the space are.
The most basic difference is how deep the playing surface is. Turf can be very tough and short.
Falling on turf can be painful and can leave you a little beaten up. On the other hand, artificial grass is much denser and easier to fall on. Because it’s thicker and manufactured with softer material, it’s preferred by some athletes.
For smaller and not extremely active sports, astroturf will be a good option. For aggressive sports like football, you should consider artificial grass. There is also the visual appeal to consider when choosing between the two, and artificial grass has a much better curb appeal.
When you’re making the final decision, it’s up to personal preference. Both options will last for a long time, they won’t require water, and they require very little maintenance. No matter what you choose, you’ll be making the right choice. For more information, please watch the provided video above.
