Hybrid > Xtreme Grass Benefits

 

STRENGTH THAT LASTS

Xtreme Grass helps natural grass grow better, stronger and last longer to provide a variety of benefits for field managers, maintenance, operations, players and coaches.


Growth Phase

Xtreme Grass is simple to install
SIMPLE INSTALLATION
Installing Xtreme Grass requires standard pitch construction equipment and local, professional installers trained in natural grass installation.

Xtreme Grass offers faster, strong natural growth
FASTER, STRONG NATURAL GROWTH
Xtreme Grass creates a micro-climate that facilitates quicker germination, better root development, thicker growth and uniform grass distribution than unreinforced natural grass.



Xtreme Grass offers optimal ground compaction
OPTIMAL ROOT DEVELOPMENT
Woven backing facilitates strong root integration for more efficient use of nutrients and water in the ground.

Xtreme Grass offers a longer growing season
LONGER GROWING SEASON
Due to the stabilizing effect, Xtreme Grass may be used earlier in Spring time and for longer in Autumn compared to unreinforced turf grass areas.


Operations

Xtreme Grass is ideal for field maintenance
FIELD MAINTENANCE
Typical natural grass maintenance processes can be carried out by a field manager on the Xtreme Grass system, including aeration, de-thatching, verti-drain, scarification and mowing. Reseed as you would a natural grass pitch with top seed or sprig.

Xtreme Grass is fully recyclable
FULLY RECYCLABLE
While the system offers end of life recycling, the woven system is not biodegradable so full stability is maintained throughout the life of the system.



Xtreme Grass is easy to repair
EFFICIENT REPAIRS
Replacement with Xtreme Grass is much easier compared to other systems since it requires no additional expensive or large machinery at the job site. Xtreme Grass can be grown off site and shipped to partially repair or re-turf a pitch mid-season. Replacement materials are quickly integrated into the look and performance of the field. The pitch can be playable almost immediately with no performance or safety concerns.

Xtreme Grass offers fields green year round
NATURAL FIELDS THAT ARE GREEN YEAR ROUND
Xtreme Grass keeps fields green longer after extended wear.


Player Performance

Xtreme Grass improves shearing resistance
IMPROVED SHEARING RESISTANCE
Xtreme Grass test plots performed better than natural grass alone in shearing and tearing resistance, important playing characteristics for demanding sports such as Rugby and American Football.

Xtreme Grass offers a uniform playing surface
UNIFORM PLAYING SURFACE
Xtreme Grass provides optimal and consistent player to surface interactions throughout the field.



Xtreme Grass is highly durable allowing for more playing hours
HIGHLY DURABLE FOR MORE PLAYING HOURS
The synthetic fibres protect the crown of the natural grass to offer at least 30% more playing hours compared to natural grass alone.

Xtreme Grass offers improved ground cover
IMPROVED GROUND COVER
The ground cover establishes quicker, survives longer, and damage and bare spots are reduced. If the sward does disappear, the surface stays even and regrowth will come from the root that remains.
