There are many beneficial ways artificial grass adapts in all four seasons, including fall. The fall season is the main transitional season between winter and summer. Thus, the changing of conditions and temperature is very apparent during fall. Fall imagery usually consists of rustic colors, leaves falling, and browning of trees and grass. However, the browning of the grass is now a thing of the past with TigerTurf. No matter what weather conditions are, artificial grass remains green and healthy looking, even when everything around it starts to wilt or turn brown.
In cooler conditions, artificial turf does not freeze up or die off like regular grass. In such cold environments, regular grass typically needs more fertilizer in the fall and winter seasons due to the fact that microbial activity drops off as the soil temperatures increase. Thus, the soil is less aerated, making it harder for oxygen to penetrate the soil for added growth. Artificial grass’ natural and life-like appearance makes it suitable for lawns that would otherwise start to brown or unpleasant in appearance. Aside from gathering falling leaves, much of the maintenance needed by regular grass in the fall is not needed by artificial grass.
Benefits of TigerTurf during the fall:
- Highly perforated, allowing water to drain itself and permeate easily through the surface of the turf should the occasional fall shower come.
- No fertilization or weeding, independent of heavy gardening effort or extra time needed for upkeep.
- Naturally green tint and realistic texture, homeowners can rest assured that during the fall season, their lawn will not look dry, dead, or barren.
- Pets and children can still enjoy and play on a lush lawn even in the autumn season.
- Savings on water and maintenance costs, households and families can save more during fall and save more funds for the upcoming holidays.
- TigerTurf is ideal for the fall because of its properties that allow it to withstand weather condition fluctuations.

One of the biggest disadvantages of a natural grass lawn…pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, and all the
other chemicals that go along with maintaining green perfection. Quality TigerTurf helps homeowners
and businesses alike experience considerable green benefits, including:
• Reduced carbon emissions from lawn equipment
• Removal of harmful pesticides, fertilizers, etc.
• Elimination of grass clippings from landfills
• Increased erosion control
• And more..
And because TigerTurf doesn’t require any pesticides, which can leach into soil and water systems, it’s
a healthier alternative.

From its inception, synthetic turf has been sold as a low-maintenance substitute for natural grass. A substitute that has stepped up in the world of green landscaping and proved its worthiness for many applications. Besides the obvious use of replacing natural grass for aesthetic purposes, TigerTurf provides an unmatched durability with less cost and upkeep.
Less cost and upkeep.Those are words that resonate with every homeowner that longs for the “Lawn of the Month” award without starting the mower or the athletic director hoping the school field will survive another year of football, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, band competition…
TigerTurf is a low cost alternative for watering, saving millions of gallons with each football field installed and thousands for homeowners looking to maintain a perfectly green oasis. Pesticides and fertilizers are no longer needed nor the the mower or weed eater (aka lower carbon emissions). TigerTurf’s playing capacity easily doubles, if not triples, that of a natural grass field and can be used year round.
And the best part….it’s only getting better.

Three Central Texas school districts have adopted the latest proven synthetic sport field products from TigerTurf — its Trophy Turf series — which is manufactured in Austin.
Students at Bastrop Independent School District (BISD), Manor High School and Elgin High School will start the 2009-2010 school year on the new turf, which features superior yarns engineered with new Springback and Capsulate profiles for heightened performance, better recovery and longevity. BISD opted for two Trophy Turf fields, one for Bastrop Stadium and the recently completed field at Cedar Creek High School.
Texas Sports Builders (TSB), headquartered in Burleson, Texas, was chosen by the school districts to install their respective fields. No stranger to the area, TSB is a certified synthetic turf and track builder with the American Sports Builders Assocation (ASBA) and installations all over the state of Texas. Two of their most recent TigerTurf installations earned them accolades from ASBA this past year for construction excellence at Royse City High School and Forney High School football stadiums, both located outside of Dallas.
Work continues at Bastrop Stadium this summer with Manor and Elgin to follow.

GLENEAGLES, Scotland, March 9 (Reuters) - Artificial pitches could be used in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, FIFA president Sepp Blatter said.
Speaking to reporters after a meeting of FIFA’s International Football Association Board in Scotland on Saturday, Blatter said artificial pitches might be necessary because the tournament was not being staged in the South African summer.
“If there are any problems with pitches because we play when it is not summer time in South Africa, it will not affect the stadia in Port Elizabeth, Cape Town or Durban because they are at sea level,” he said.
“But perhaps up in the mountains, if there are any problems then it is a possibility that some matches could be played on artificial turf. This is not only a point to make headlines, it is the truth.
“Football on artificial turf is the future. More and more. The only opponents are people who have never played on it.”
FIFA will make a decision after next year’s Confederations Cup tournament in South Africa which will use a number of the World Cup stadiums and act as an important stepping stone towards the finals. (Editing by John Mehaffey)
