Thanks to the higher resistance of the grass to the mechanical action of the athletes, the damages caused by playing are very few and the extraordinary maintenance costs are 30% lower.
Interventions of scarification/verticut, stitching and brushing of the turf surface are important to avoid the formation of thatch. Such interventions stabilise the turf for a long time. The sand on the surface must not be used.
The ordinary maintenance (mowing, nutritional needs and irrigation) is the same of natural grass. The use of biologic, organic and biostimulant products is fundamental for the maintenance because it stimulates the natural defences and reactions of the grass.
