Installation

The hybrid turf PowerGrass installation is simple because the 365 micron synthetic fibers are very resilient and well anchored to the special support, but must entrust it to experts in natural grass fields and in artificial turf installation.

Achieving a natural grass pitch is more complex than it seems. In the common imagination many think that it is sufficient to clean, breaking up soil and spead and cover the grass seeds, so that nature provides the rest. Having to play a number of sports activities, possibly under the rain, without having to pause the game, experts now are oriented to the sand based growth mediums supplemented with organic and mineral soil conditioners. The same practise follows PowerGrass with a technology far superior than usual, to reach the highest levels of playability of the field and increase safety and comfort for the players.

In addition to the prerogatives of the project of high standards, you must have a workgroup with technical experts of both worlds of natural and artificial grass.

Even the means of work must be equiped with garden tires to avoid compaction of the existing soil and during the transport of the material of the various drainage and growth medium layers.

During the construction phase, on any type of existing soil, it is sufficient to:

  1. clean the surface and level the ground with slopes in two or four gradients;
  2. install a 24 sprinklers irrigation system for a regular football field;
  3. built main collecting drainage trenches around the field with drainage pipes then filled with gravel;
  4. built secondary drainage trenches diagonally in the field are with drainage pipes then filled with gravel;
  5. built a complete gravel layer for a homogeneous thickness of approximately 8 cm;
  6. spread a layer of USGA sand prior mixed with 30-40% of Geofill PG by volume, thus forming a background for artificial turf and suitable for natural grass growth, for a homogeneous layer thickness of approximately 8 cm;
  7. lay out the artificial turf, specially designed to be breathable, sew the rolls together and subsequent fill it up with a mixture of silica sand and 30-40% of Geofill PG for a homogeneous layer thickness of approximately 3 cm;
  8. seed and fertilize with specific products;
  9. follow-up service by competent personnel on natural grass care.

During installation you must be careful to get the best results such as a) make sure that the surface will be leveled, compacted evenly and the slope of all layers makes excess of rainwater to flow into the drains. In this way, depressions are not formed in the surface and there will be no standing water that may prevent the development of grass, b) lay the artificial turf simply accosting rolls carefully to avoid leaving any gaps or overlaps of the artificial support c) sew the rolls together with special sewing machine and d) infill the synthetic turf with the mixture of sand and Geofill PG raking carefully to make all synthetic fibers protrude on the surface preventing them from being buried in the growth medium; in this way the artificial fibers will protect efficiency the crown of the plants of natural grass.

Mix before and distribute the growth medium, slightly humid to prevent the sand's separation from soil conditioner. Distribute the medium with care and in small amounts several times, while brushing and raking to make deposited on the backing of synthetic grass and all artificial fibers protrude out from the medium final layer.

The tractor with the blade under laser control is perfect for leveling the field with extreme speed and precision.

Once the rolls are laying on the surface the seems are joint together with sewing machine to provide one turf surface, easy to infill with the sand based growth medium.

Once sewn the rolls between them, the synthetic grass is ready for infill with the mix of sand and Geofill PG suitable for natural grass growth.

Grooming with accuracy untill all synthetic fibers protrude on the surface is essential for the project success.

Seed the grass mixture not in lines but all over the surface will provide a rapid grass establishment of a dense sward all over the surface.
