Stadiums

PowerGrass is an hybrid turfgrass system, designed for professionals players, to provide a stable, natural and safe playing surface in the stadium all over the year!

Professional players are now convinced that natural grass is the best and safer playing surface for any contact sport like Soccer, Rugby and American Football.

However, the main problem in natural grass, especially inside the stadium, concerns the tear resistance of the natural grass sod that is responsible for the stability of the playing surface to support players actions.

In many stadiums, tribunes and covers inhibit the sunlight to reach the grass, especially when the sun is low, for an extended period during winter. Low light for growth means less photosynthesis, equal to less energy for natural grass plants growth which is often combined with an extended wet period over winter, thus the grass roots become thin and shallow.

The sand based growth layers are meant to increase water infiltration to avoid that a match is postponed for bad weather conditions but, on the other hand, sand has no cohesion. When the grass roots are thin and shallow, the tear resistance of the natural grass sods is limited and the sods are easy to get raised by the player's actions.

When turfgrass sod give away easily, the surface stability is compromised and will be formed divots which are both dangerous for the players. Additionally, replace the sods raised takes a lot of efforts and expenses, after every game.

We have often seen many stadiums forced to replace the turfgrass sods over a long rainy winter, which is the worse period of the year for grass sods transplantation and it's clear that the playing stability before and, even soon after the sods replacement, is not acceptable in most cases and the risk of injuries is extremely high.

PowerGrass hybrid turfgrass system has well anchored roots and offers natural grass feeling and stable playing surface, without divots!

PowerGrass is an innovative hybrid turfgrass system because promotes, from the very beginning, a rich roots system of the natural grass that anchors to the special support of the synthetic turf and the grass resists better from tear to extreme actions like players slide tackling.

The synthetic turf for this innovative hybrid system, is special designed to promote natural grass growth and we’ve seen that natural grass grows even better inside and through the backing. This synthetic turf is meant to reinforce the natural grass by protecting the grass crowns and increasing the tear resistance of the sods meanwhile is nearly imperceptible to players. Even where and when the natural grass tends to collapse, the synthetic turf maintains stable, green and playable the surface without risky divots for the players.

The synthetic turf for this innovative hybrid system is provided with an extremely high porous support which is not biodegradable and maintains stable its features in time. This synthetic turf is designed to get complete integration with natural grass. The synthetic yarns are strong and resilient, well fixed on the backing therefore really protect the crowns of natural grass from wear.

This synthetic turf designed for PowerGrass hybrid system offer the opportunity to groundsmen to obtain better cohesion and stability of river sand based growth layers and they can even increase the porosity and softness by the use of Gentle cork to their growth layers, without loosing stability since synthetic turf will bind all together. The grater the porosity is of the growth layer, the more space is provided for the roots. The natural grass roots will grow rich, also through the backing and anchor on it, to increase extremely the tear resistant of your natural grass sod.

This natural grass sods reinforced with synthetic turf provides a stable playing surface with natural touch. The reinforced hybrid sods support players actions and prevent them from injuries, much better if compared to traditional natural grass which is less resistant to players actions.

PowerGrass hybrid turfgrass system is the natural grass reinforced system that can provides a stable playing surface even where and when natural grass won’t make it.

Promoting a new innovative hybrid turfgrass system, some are still sceptic due to bad experiences in the past with old hybrid systems and is understandable since:

  1. there is an hybrid turfgrass system that is provided with a partially biodegradable backing and is necessary to wait months or years before the roots have the chance to go through; in most cases we’ve seen the grass growth is not healthy within this synthetic turf;
  2. there is another hybrid turfgrass system that is provided with a partially biodegradable backing where the synthetic fibers are not even fixed on the support and is not even possible to brush in the infill growth layer and make the fibers protrude over the surface to protect the grass crowns;
  3. there is another hybrid turfgrass system that is provided without backing where the synthetic fibers are too thin (just 100 micron), are not resilient and do not maintain the upright position to protect the grass crowns;
  4. finally there is another hybrid turfgrass system designed to let the grass grow exclusively above the backing. The grass grows for a little but when an extended humid period occur the oxygen within the grass roots zone will be consumed and hydrogen sulfide (with a typical rotten eggs smell) will be formed and kill the grass itself.

The main problem of the industry is how to provide an open backing, with proper air circulation all over the surface, that is possible to fix strong and resilient synthetic yarns.

Only PowerGrass hybrid turfgrass system comprises a non bio-degradable, breathable backing that permit healthy growth from the very beginning and for a many years.

Only PowerGrass hybrid turfgrass system comprises a special designed growth layer that include Geofill PG with Coco and Gentle Cork to improve both growth and playing conditions offering a soft surface with a cushioning effect.

Invest in PowerGrass hybrid turfgrass system and upgrade your main stadium to increase the stability of the playing surface and reduce the risk of injuries related to the pitch conditions, especially during winter time. The investment in this innovative hybrid turfgrass system will enable your team to practice training sections on the same pitch of the official game.

Grass growth lighting is the solution which is necessary to restore better growth conditions in your stadium.

The use of artificial grow lighting, heating of the soil, big fans and even subsoil aeration system are aimed to enable groundsmen to balance light, heat and air circulation above and in the soil over the season to promote grass growth and stress resistance.

Some stadiums, with high tribunes and impressive covers, may create inside a microclimate less favorable for the grass growth.

The air circulation is reduced, the direct sunlight is often lacking, some areas of the field are too dark at certain period of the year and the moisture in the soil is too high. Lack of energy and excess of humidity in the growth medium inhibits the grass growth, reduces the density of turfgrass and sometimes makes the surface slippery.

Restore the best conditions possible for the grass growth is a fundamental prerogative to promote healthy growth and achieve the desired quality standard.

A deep know-how allows us, in collaboration with international partners, to study tailor solutions, monitor and analyze the results over time in collaboration with your groundsmen.
