Every so often in Washington, DC, chiefs of the company will organize a soccer game for his firm to motivate and invigorate his employees. The company's manager never had problems organizing his events for the employee's boring game because the firm installed an artificial grass field behind the Washington-based company in June 2013.
Company's chief knows that practice space is at a premium, so he decided to build their field. Behind the firm they had a dirt field, but the culture in the company supported new technological innovations, so installing artificial grass was a goal. The Washington company went all out when he decided to make their field, which took four months and $200,000 to construct. The field, which only needs to be groomed once a month, spans 95 by 45 yards. Employees said it was the only solar-lit field in the county.
The executive chief had two reasons for the installation of artificial turf project: for his employees benefit and the children. At the Washington County, there is not much for the children and for their working parents to do. The executive chief wanted the kids and working parents to be excited about their abilities and innovative culture, and what better place to have to show your excitement on a turf field. A lot of the fields in Washington, DS have potholes and knots that can cause injuries; because of the technological fiber cushioning it is easier on the ankles and knees. Natural grass is limited because of the conditions of the fields, and a true surface like artificial turf makes things easier for learning.
The employees are excited to see their kids' reactions when they first step on the field. The first-time kids are walking into their field; their reacting as is a professional stadium. From every single one of the kids you hear the same "Wow" factor because it is no different from what the professionals are playing on. But the company's field - that needs just 15 minutes to dry thanks to channels and special drains in the turf - is an unusual to have in Washington, DC. Of the 18 public and private high schools, only three have artificial turf fields. Conversely, every high school in Anne Arundel County has at least one field, and plans are underway to double the number. Prince George's County recently passed legislation to install artificial turf fields at each of its high schools. Over the years several instances where the high school stadium fields have been a real disadvantage in the playoffs, which identifies the need for all of the four local schools to go to artificial grass.
Much of the reason that many companies and schools in Washington switch to artificial grass was due to overuse. Last school seasons, boys' and girls' soccer, field hockey and football played 45 games in a 47-day span, or others would play 13 games in a 10-day span late in September. And by the time the school will get to the playoffs the natural grass will have no blades of grass between the hash marks. Some would use rollers to tap the mud down to make a smoother surface, but is still is not grass that many would deal thought out the season. As far as durability is concerned, many believe that synthetic grass is a better choice than the fescue for all of the stadium fields.
