How To Incorporate Artificial Turf With Infrastructure

Artificial turf is a versatile landscaping solution for various residential, commercial, and urban infrastructure projects. It provides users with a low-maintenance green space to enjoy throughout the year. Our team at Goat Turf is experienced in helping clients find a solution that meets their functional and aesthetic needs, whether they’re building an indoor sports field or an outdoor pet area. Here are several ways to incorporate artificial turf with infrastructure:

1. Playgrounds and Recreational Areas

Creating a safe and accessible environment is key when completing a recreational area infrastructure project. Developers can install our artificial turf products on sports fields, playgrounds, and multi-purpose areas. Using it as a surface material around playgrounds provides a comfortable play environment for children. Installing the turf on sports fields for activities such as soccer, football, or baseball offers a consistent playing surface with reduced maintenance needs. For multi-purpose areas, artificial grass creates a space suitable for various activities, including picnics, yoga classes, and outdoor events. Incorporating this landscaping solution in outdoor recreation infrastructure projects promotes continuous play, as the area remains usable year-round and regardless of weather conditions.

2. Streetscapes

Using artificial turf for streetscape infrastructure projects helps transform urban areas, providing numerous benefits such as enhancing the environment’s overall appearance. Additional benefits include improved water conservation, reduced chemical inputs from fertilizers or insecticides, and decreased maintenance requirements. Developers can use artificial turf to replace traditional concrete or gravel medians and sidewalk strips. This application provides a consistently green landscape and soft walking surface for pedestrians. They may also install synthetic turf on traffic islands and roundabouts, creating a durable and visually interesting streetscape.

3. Pet Parks 

Pet park infrastructure projects can include constructing pet-friendly surfaces, water features, and drainage systems. Synthetic turf provides a safe and resilient place for pets to run around, making it a suitable choice for designated play areas. For pet parks with water features, installing high-quality artificial grass allows liquids to drain through the surface efficiently. This helps reduce the amount of mud, dirt, and standing water within the play area. 

At Goat Turf, we carry several types of synthetic turf suitable for pet parks. Our products promote optimal drainage, increased odor control, and reduced risk of fleas and ticks. The deodorizing infill also helps maintain a cool environment for pets to enjoy.

4. Rooftops

Incorporating artificial turf into rooftop infrastructure projects helps enhance the functionality and appearance of these spaces. Building developers can use Goat Turf products to create customized recreational areas for lounging, meditating, practicing yoga, or playing mini-golf. They may also design rooftop areas to accommodate tenant events and parties. Synthetic turf provides an attractive and durable space for adding and removing large decorations, furniture setups, and other entertainment-related installations. The soft and cushioned roof surface may also reduce noise transmission, providing a quieter and more comfortable environment for residents living below. This feature can be particularly beneficial in urban settings where noise pollution is a concern.

5. Pool Areas

When constructing a pool area, using synthetic turf around the perimeter provides an alternative to traditional decking materials or concrete. It offers a soft and comfortable surface for relaxing, reading, and sunbathing by the water. Developers can install artificial grass to create pathways and walkways that lead to the pool area. The turf provides a cool, slip-resistant surface for foot traffic, even when wet. It will also remain green all year long without being watered, trimmed, or fertilized. Our Goat Turf team schedules free consultations and assists with creating low-maintenance pool areas free from mud and grass clippings.

6. Terraces and Balconies

Terraces and balconies are structural components that can be included in various residential and commercial infrastructure projects. Artificial turf adds a vibrant and natural look to these spaces, creating more inviting and visually appealing outdoor areas. It provides a cushioned surface that is comfortable for walking, standing, and sitting. Synthetic turf can be used as the terrace’s primary surface covering or to create designated outdoor spaces for meals and social gatherings.

Goat Turf’s products are designed to be long-lasting and weather-resistant, allowing them to withstand various outdoor conditions. Their UV-resistant properties reduce fading and discoloration even on balconies and terraces with direct sun exposure. This characteristic helps the turf maintain its appearance for many years.

7. Waiting Areas

Project developers can use synthetic turf to enhance common waiting areas in healthcare facilities, office lobbies, and public transit stations. These areas often experience heavy foot traffic and may affect customers’ first impressions of a space. At Goat Turf, our artificial grass products are made using strong fibers that withstand frequent use. We also carry various turf colors and lengths, allowing developers and businesses to customize their waiting areas.
