The first thing to think about is the size of your pitch. When we know what sort of space you are trying to cover we can put together a price not only for the astro turf surface itself, but for the foundations too. We start by laying down a geotextile membrane which stops contamination, such as weeds and roots, growing up through your sub base. This helps maintain the long lasting porosity of your surface and ensure that your sports facility remains weatherproof all year round.
The next stage in the construction process is to add angular stones which further strengthen the waterproof properties of your turf. Angular stones make sure there are gaps for water to drain through.
After the sub base, a shock pad is laid down. This will help make playing sports on this surface as comfortable as possible. Ideal for fast paced activities like rugby and football, it provides an added safety feature too. The shock pad also removes the chances of your turf slipping over time.
Finally the installation of the astro turf itself. We have a number of different turf carpets to choose from, all of which are porous and weatherproof all year round. Individual carpets are laid out before being joined together to provide one seamless pitch. The final stage is to lay down an infill – if required. This makes sure that the pile of the surface keeps its structure, it also gives added grip for sports players.
The cost of all-weather turf can massively vary between projects. The biggest factor is the size of the space, but other specifications may include the need for fencing and floodlighting. Let us help you make the most out of your sports surfacing budget.
