Well constructed Natural Turf is the REAL alternative to poorly constructed and POORLY maintained natural turf

There are viable natural turf alternatives to synthetic turf, which places toxins and carcinogens in the bodies of our children and streams of our watershed. This page will be a resource for field maintenance information, so we can focus on retaining and creating well-constructed natural turf fields! :)


"Maintenance of natural grass fields is critical to their success. Maintenance is often lacking due to budget constraints. However, when individuals feel that natural grass fields have failed, the money is always there for a conversion to a synthetic surface.

Instead of giving up on a natural grass surface, raise the funds to provide good maintenance practices for a safe natural grass surface. Annual inputs of $20,000 to $30,000 per field can go a long way in the maintenance and performance of a natural grass field. "
