XtremeGrass is a woven hybrid grass in which natural grass is reinforced by artificial fibres. This creates an exceptionally strong sports field that combines the advantages of real grass and artificial turf; Enjoy a dense grass mat that offers the same natural sports experience as unreinforced grass, while allowing for many more hours of training and play. Wear spots are less likely to appear and you will not be bothered by loose turf and divots when making sliding passes/tackles, for example. This prevents injuries and reduces the chance of cancellations in poor weather.
XtremeGrass is a superior solution for competitive football, rugby and other sports fields. With hybrid grass you increase the number of playing hours, without sacrificing the playing experience.
Whereas a natural grass pitch can be played on for about 250 hours before it wears out and has to be re-seeded, hybrid grass can be played on up to 4 times longer per a year. In practice, this means that you can train and play more often.
The field will always remain green, stable, consistent and playable in poor weather conditions. It is no coincidence that many professional sports clubs choose hybrid turf for their stadiums and training complexes. The FA endorses hybrid technology like XtremeGrass for both training and competition use.
HYBRID GRASS ADVANTAGES
Hybrid grass offers several advantages over real grass. Whereas natural grass suffers from wear and tear and can turn into a mud bath, hybrid grass always stays green, stable and even. This means that it can be played on more often and more intensively, it can be used even when it is raining and the risk of injuries is considerably lower.
Compared to artificial turf, hybrid grass offers many technical sports advantages. A hybrid grass mat simply plays better. The ball does not bounce up unnaturally high and does not roll significantly faster than on real grass. Last but not least: you still enjoy the wonderful smell of real grass when you enter the field!
The purchase costs of XtremeGrass are lower than those of artificial turf and other grass reinforcement systems. Furthermore, maintenance costs are no higher than for a natural sports field and no special equipment is required for installation or maintenance. In addition, XtremeGrass is recyclable.
No heavy machines are required for the installation of XtremeGrass. This can be done by local grass professionals and with standard equipment.
XtremeGrass creates a microclimate that allows for faster germination, better root development and richer growth.
The open woven backing ensures strong root integration leading to more efficient absorption of nutrients and water from the soil.
Maintenance is similar to natural grass. Aerating, thawing, draining, scarifying and mowing and re-seeding can be performed by the site manager.
The system is fully recyclable, while the woven turf is not biodegradable. Therefore, the turf does not lose any stability during its lifetime.
Repairing or replacing XtremeGrass is easier than other systems because it does not require expensive or large machinery and can be replaced in sections.
XtremeGrass performs better than natural grass in terms of tear and shear resistance. Particularly important in demanding sports such as football or rugby.
A uniform, dense turf that protects against loose sods guarantees a high quality, consistent and level playing surface.
MORE PLAYING HOURS
The artificial grass fibres protect the top of the natural grass blades. As a result, hybrid grass offers up to 4 more playing hours compared to natural grass.
XtremeGrass reinforces natural grass by weaving artificial grass fibres into a ground cloth with an open membrane. This weaving process ensures better anchoring and more resilience of the fibres. The microclimate promotes the root growth of the natural grass blades. As a result, the grass grows faster during the installation phase and has a good recovery capacity during periods of intensive use.
The open membrane also makes it possible to maintain the field in a normal way (as with natural grass). It is possible to aerate and overseed the grass annually using standard processes and machinery.
WOVEN GROUND COVER.
In comparison to hybrid grass, where the fibres are tufted through the backing material, woven systems provide stronger pile anchorage. Also, woven hybrid grass is more stable, especially when the rolls are connected.
The open membrane supports root growth. As a result, the field can be used faster after installation and recovers better during the season. The woven system also has a pressure-distributing effect, which ensures a flatter playing field.
XtremeGrass is 100% recyclable
INSTALLATION OF HYBRID GRASS
XtremeGrass is easy to install with the help of our partners. This natural grass specialist can also provide advice on installation and design.
UV-stabilized artificial grass fibres are incorporated into a woven turf system.
Construction of a standard sub-base on which XtremeGrass can be placed.
Filling of the turf with a special mixture and sowing with a grass seed mix.
The natural grass grows between the XtremeGrass fibres and easily penetrates the woven system.
Together with our partners we are creating fantastic sports fields that are playable year round, flat, consistent and durable. This is always done in accordance with the agreements and within the budget.
USE OF HYBRID GRASS FIELDS
XtremeGrass is suitable for intensive use and can therefore be used for various types of fields. It is, for example, suitable for use in stadiums, where natural grass generally does not flourish. It is also an ideal solution for training fields, which are often used more intensively than competitive fields. Hybrid grass can also be used for parts of the field that are subject to extra pressure and high wear, such as the penalty areas and centre circle. Even when the natural grass blades have worn away between the artificial turf, the field remains green and usable.
The hybrid grass is easy to install. No edge boards are required, for example. Due to the mix of real grass blades and artificial grass fibres, the sports facility will retain its natural appearance. XtremeGrass also has a long life span and is fully recyclable. As a result, it does not cause microplastics to end up in nature.
With the help of our specialist construction partners the installation of XtremeGrass is quick and easy.
XtremeGrass stimulates a microclimate that, compared to a non-reinforced natural grass field, ensures faster germination, better growth and a more even distribution of the grass.
Maintenance of our hybrid grass is similar to that of a natural grass field. Just like real grass, hybrid grass fields need to be mowed, aerated, scarified and overseeded.
We can deliver XtremeGrass in turf rolls. This makes it easy to replace parts of the field that are subject to heavy use. The turf can be played on immediately. This can also be applied to the entire field.
