The stadium has been restructured late in the summer of 2019, by replacing the existing reinforced root zone system of the Bermuda grass to the innovative POWERgrass hybrid system. It has been removed the top layer for about 100 mm, down to the old reinforced carpet system and new sand ameliorated with additives, has been integrated before the hybrid grass system was installed. The hybrid carpet has been installed in rolls of 4 metres stitched together and then filled with the root zone and the elastic layer up to 35 mm. The surface has been seeded with Seashore Paspalum Pure Dynasty and mineral and organic fertilisers have been distributed.
A great thanks to Talbot Farm Landscapes team that turned out this nice project in reality!
POWERgrass hybrid system successfully combines an innovative hybrid grass carpet with a natural elastic element and soil conditioners to balance %VWC in the sand based rootzone.
POWERgrass is a “game changer” because it offers the advantage to play safely for a great number of hours. The reduced and simple maintenance of the POWERgrass system provides over 30% of savings in a 20-years lifespan to any club level.
POWERgrass offers the possibility to standardise the performance features worldwide and mitigate environmental stress and foot-traffic intensity. The backing of the hybrid carpet provides high air circulation, anchors the roots that penetrate, and protects the roots from heat/frost stress, resulting in healthier growth conditions.
 The lifespan is estimated for over 20 years as far the surface is well maintained, thus natural grass coverage reduces direct UV-rays that harm synthetic fibres.
