Cost Analysis

The financial benefit to a FieldTurf field over natural grass is quite simple: The upfront cost is higher, but the cost savings over time make it a much more financially-sound decision.

With a FieldTurf field, you will:

  • Use your field for more hours per day with no field recovery time needed.
  • Use your field for more months out of the year.
  • Use your field in almost any type of weather.
  • Rent out the use of your field to generate revenue.
  • Save on maintenance costs such as re-sodding, watering and mowing
  • Save on harmful chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides
