Discover the many advantages of a synthetic turf surface.

For years, synthetic turf has primarily been utilized for athletic playing surfaces. But now, the use of synthetic turf has expanded well beyond the goal lines - and for good reason. Less mess, lower maintenance and improved fall protection make synthetic turf surfaces an ideal option for a variety of applications, especially when it is installed by the synthetic turf experts at Byrne & Jones Construction.

Playgrounds - Many playgrounds use wood mulch around playground equipment. Other options include pea gravel, engineered mulch or old, poured in place rubber tiles. Pea gravel and mulch often spread outside of the play area - all while managing to not stay in the high traffic areas where it's needed most and rubber tiles have a tendency to get worn down and is costly to repair. That's why many parks departments and school districts have turned to retrofitting their existing playgrounds with synthetic turf, oftentimes covering existing worn out poured in place rubber with the turf option.

The difference between the wood mulch playground and the newly installed synthetic turf makes a dramatic difference.

Once a synthetic turf surface is installed, there's no need for continuous maintenance. There's no more mess with wood chips being scattered about and the need to continue to add more mulch throughout the year is completely eliminated. More important, shock pads can be installed underneath the turf in key areas to provide added cushioning to meet critical fall height.

Synthetic turf results in a cleaner, more visually appealing and safer surface for children to play upon. The whole installation process can be performed within weeks and when you factor in long-term maintenance costs, is actually a more affordable alternative.

Landscapes - Many commercial property owners are discovering that synthetic turf offers major advantages over on-going maintenance issues like mowing, seeding, mulching or watering. Retrofitting parking lot islands or small, green space areas with synthetic turf offers a clean, contemporary look throughout the year without the need for continual maintenance.
