XtraGrass is a network of synthetic turf fibers woven into a strong backing material and laid directly on a standard field base.
XtraGrass is carefully is top dressed with sand and over-seeded with your choice of turfgrass.
Within days, the grass seeds germinate and grow between the synthetic fibers and through the backing. This creates an incredibly strong natural grass surface which is resistant to heavy wear. As the grass grows, portions of the backing material biodegrades, leaving more room for the roots to grow through, while still retaining a strong support structure for the grass.
XtraGrass uses a standard root zone mixture which retains nutrients and water. No specialized equipment is required for an effective maintenance and fertilization program of XtraGrass.
Even when the natural grass is worn, the field will still have a good visual appearance due to the green synthetic fibers showing through the surface.
XtraGrass allows aeration using standard maintenance equipment and this ensures the surface remains in top condition. By contrast, aeration is much harder to achieve with other grass reinforcement systems.
If, for some reason, part of the surface has to be replaced, this can be done very easily and quickly with XtraGrass. For other turf reinforcement systems this can present a major problem, resulting in the damaged areas being replaced with standard natural turf which will wear at a much faster rate than the surrounding reinforced area.
