South Park is a sporting precinct within the Southern Districts Football Association. It is home to two football fields which are used year-round for football training and competition. When not used for football, these sports fields are occupied by the local community.
The frequent use of the football fields wears out the natural grass and limits opportunity for grass growth and recovery. The challenge for Council was to create a more robust, stable natural grass, one that could be played on year-round and one that would not require replacement 3-4 times per year.
To meet this challenge, Council looked to hybrid grass, a combination of natural grass and artificial grass – the best of both worlds, with the artificial grass protecting the natural grass.
XtraGrass was the solution chosen by Council. It was grown at a local turf farm and supplied in thick cut maxi-rolls. XtraGrass is a stable, ready-to-play hybrid turf system that can be played on all year-round, without replacement and without field closures. Importantly XtraGrass keeps the high wear areas level and safe.
XtraGrass was initially installed in the goal boxes on one football field, and after its success, was installed in the goal boxes on the second football field. XtraGrass is also proving to be a sound investment, with a payback of 1 – 2 years. However, the real value lies in the enjoyment and wellbeing experienced by those who love to play sport and exercise on the natural grass fields at South Park.
