Does your local high school have an artificial turf football field?
If not, it may not be long before it does.
The benefits far outweigh those of natural grass, which has school boards thinking about making the switch.
Goshen High School is considering replacing their natural grass with artificial grass in effort to reduce maintenance, conserve water, and save money.
Most artificial turf fields these days use a mix of synthetic grass and ground rubber pellets to create a softer surface. Efficient drainage systems quickly remove standing water and there is no need to irrigate.
