Artificial Turf at the 2016 Olympics in Rio

It seems that artificial turf just can't be held back these
days! The benefits for sports fields, for instance, are too great to be ignored
or suppressed. It is quickly becoming the standard sports surface material for
the most popular sports like soccer and football, but it is also gaining
traction for other sports, too. One of them is field hockey. In fact, artificial
turf will be installed on a field hockey field that will be played on during
the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
The company producing the artificial turf says that the turf
will be durable, very low maintenance, and supply a uniform surface across the
entire field, with no ruts or shifting areas, and without requiring intervals
between games for maintenance and repairs. This would have been unheard of with
natural grass.
After the Olympic Games end, the artificial turf surface will
continue to yield benefits to the local community, too. It will allure out of
town visitors playing on the field in tournaments, who will in turn spend money
at local hotels and merchants, boosting the economy. Furthermore, it will
encourage physical activity among the populace, and increase camaraderie among
people who visit to cheer on their favorite teams as spectators. ...

Artificial Grass Business Booming In North Texas!

that manufacture or install artificial lawns are experiencing a boom in
business, due to the drought-like conditions and watering restrictions in many
North Texas cities.
But the
synthetic lawns today aren't the same plastic AstroTurf made popular in the
1970s. The products on the market now, are not just used for putting greens and
football fields either.
Tim Dvorak,
owner of the company Synthetic Grass Pro, and gets calls every day from
homeowners inquiring about artificial grass.
"I discussed
this with many turf manufacturers, that's a big thing they notice. As soon as
there are drought restrictions, watering restrictions, or an ordinance like the
City of Dallas two-days a week restriction, it really just makes this industry
explode," said Dvorak.
synthetic lawns are made to stay cool underfoot, drain water well, and last for
10-15 years. The products come in different shades of green, different
textures, and mimic different varieties of natural grass. Choosing artificial
can be expensive upfront: prices range from $7.50 to $15 a square foot.

homeowners with artificial grass installed in their yards feel that the
investment was worth it.
"The initial
cost is expensive, but it's already paid for itself over the four years. Not
having to re-sod it, not having to water. The yard guys[come less often].
So it's more than paid for itself," said Dvorak.
homeowners can be skeptical at the beginning, until they see the fake grass
Not all
cities in North Texas are on board with artificial grass, though.
Frisco does
not allow artificial turf at this time, and many homeowners' associations have
Park passed an ordinance restricting artificial turf to back yards.

synthetic grass. Those cities include Dallas, Arlington, Denton, and University
Park. ...
