benefits of synthetic turf

There are many benefits of synthetic turf when it comes to choosing your surface for entertainment and sporting areas, let us begin…

playing time

Synthetic turf has up to 3000 hours play per year. This is an increase of 256% playing time compared to natural grass which is only 600 hours of play a year. There is also no rest period required between play which is required when using natural grass.


One of the greatest benefits of synthetic turf is that it requires little to no maintenance. The only thing you need to do is clean up any leaf debris or bird poo that may have fallen on the surface which is bound to happen with both synthetic and natural grass.

Synthetic turf does require maintenance every 1-3 years but this can be organised through us at Bioscapes Group for already existing synthetic playing fields OR it can be included in your competitive package when choosing to build with us. The days of mowing, irrigation, aeration and the use of pesticides and fertilizers to keep nasty and ugly looking weeds away with natural turf are over!


Unlike natural grass, synthetic turf is water-resistant, and requires no rest period or maintenance between play!

This means synthetic turf can be played on 24/7/365 days a year. Allowing for a potential increase of up to 256% in profit as there is a 256% increase in opportunity to use the surface for sports, community events and other revenue-generating activities throughout the course of the year. Say goodbye to natural grass that is “too wet / too muddy” to play on, say goodbye to flooding and say hello to consistently happy customers and more profit.


Synthetic turf does the environment a whole world of good. You no longer need to waste water in order to keep your grass healthy and in “playing condition” as synthetic turf doesn’t require any irrigation. You completely void all use of herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers that are toxic for the environment. Synthetic turf definitely wins the environmental case.


Synthetic turf allows for much more efficient use of space by upgrading to synthetic turf. You can achieve more use with the same single amount of space. Here at Bioscapes Group, we can convert any space into an entertainment heaven that serves multiple purposes. This is called a multi purpose playing field and can only be created with synthetic turf.


Synthetic turf is 3X less expensive than natural grass over an extended period of time. It is a great investment and only takes around 2 years to earn your money back. 

Natural grass has a much slower and lower ROI due to higher maintenance costs and the inability to hold frequent revenue generating events because of rest periods and inability to withstand weather during winter months as mentioned above.

community use

Communities have enhanced accessibility to your synthetic surface playing field due to increased playing time and it being a weather resistant surface. This means it is available 24/7/365 for the community’s use. Unlike natural turf, which is always available, but can’t always be used.


So with all said and looking at the benefits of synthetic turf, it leads us at Bioscapes to the conclusion that Synthetic Turf is SUPERIOR to Natural Turf.

We are all definitely #teamsynthetic, what about you?
