The use of artificial turf surfaces in the sporting arena has continued its consistent growth since the 1980’s, moving through a number of significant stages over the past 30 years. The ongoing technology developments have seen the old surfaces transform into the ultimate playing surfaces, and in many different sports changing the way the game is played. From old sand filled synthetic turf, to ‘wet’ hockey turfs and now 4G Football turfs, the changes in the way players and balls interact with the surface have changed the sports and viewing experience for spectators.
The greatest benefit of synthetic turf is its all-weather playability and increased hours of use over natural turf surfaces. New Zealand’s variable climate, wet winters and growing population is placing an ever increasing pressure on school and council sports facilities. With the use of artificial turf surfaces, our communities can cater for the increasing foot traffic while providing world class playing surfaces for both young and old.

Teamturf offers a start to finish project management service including base construction, court surfacing, fencing, tennis net/posts and lighting. In all cases it is essential to ensure that the sub-base on which the synthetic grass is to be laid is of good standard, this is usually concrete but can be asphalt or a crushed rock alternative.
Being a flexible product synthetic grass will reflect any deficiencies in the sub-base, therefore it’s essential to get our specialists to construct a suitable base or repair an old base prior to installation of your new artificial turf surface.
