Synthetic Turf Design

The synthetic turf market is very competitive and fast-changing. Many turf manufacturers are continually researching new technologies to improve their products. Due to ever-changing technologies, owners are presented with many products and options currently available, which can be stressful. Most owners are not aware of the various types of turf systems, turf fibers, turf infills, or shock pads available.


Sportworks’ goal is to simplify the process with owners and facility managers. After determining your intended use, budget, and other priorities, we match the correct turf system with your needs. Our process gives you the right mix of performance, durability, and value.

Streamlined Process

Step by Step Guideline for Selecting a Synthetic Turf System:

Step 1: Determine Anticipated Usage

Answer questions such as “Will this primarily be used for games, or will it also serve as a multi-purpose field for events and graduation?” “How often will the field be used?” The answers to these questions determine the fiber and quality you select.

Step 2: What are your system performance priorities?

Speed of play? Ball interaction? Safety? Maintenance? Cost? Each part of the synthetic turf system can be customized to fit your needs.

Step 3: Make an informed decision

Time to pull the trigger. After you learn about the options, it’s time to determine your budget and make a decision. Synthetic turf is not a one-size fits-all solution but should be customized to your priority and budget.
