Synthetic turf is maintenance free when it comes to watering, mowing and fertilizing but allowing premature matting will add additional maintenance and will have you on a rake and broom more often to keep the fibers in an upright position.
This month ASK JW will teach you why fiber structure and type of infill is important in keeping your synthetic turf fibers looking good for years to come.
Every year SGW and its research and development team are producing advanced synthetic turf fibers in different shapes to give stability to its synthetic turf systems.
The fiber structure is very important to its longevity as well, especially when it comes to keeping the fibers vertical. Getting to know your turf and type of infill will keep your customers happy without complaining of excessive matting or lying flat.
Terms to remember in the synthetic turf industry;
Prior to your installation I recommend you research the use for the area that you are placing the synthetic turf.
These are some questions that I recommend answering to assist you in choosing your synthetic turf product.
- Is it a high traffic area?
- Is the area made for multiple child play?
- Is there constant egress?
- Is it an area where sporting activities will be played on?
- Will there be furniture placed in the area?
