Artificial Turf

Recommended Posts

Some parents in Jackson Co. expressed concern over the potential cancer causing agents in the infill and it caused a major delay in going ahead with the project.  It got so slow that the Carolina Panthers threatened to pull their grant for the field.  Eventually, Jackson Co. went with a natural infill which increased the cost.  I believe it is made from crushed walnut shells.

Instead of the little black rubber pellets, it looks white.

My son played on it his senior year.  He was not impressed.

Notwithstanding our last budget, history shows our fake turf will probably be indoor/outdoor carpet installed by Bob's Flooring Mart to save a couple bucks.

We are getting our sidelines turfed and all grass that isnt the playing field is getting turfed. We love our grass so that's our turf for now. 

Since there is basically no sideline..... that’s not much turf. Just saying

True but it turns into a mud hole as does some of the areas behind the end zones.
