The Chicago Plan Commission approved the 135,640 square foot facility that will feature three artificial-turf fields that can be used for baseball, football, soccer or any other field sport. Global Syn-Turf, Inc. believes that it is important to build a community life that will create convenient services and gives the children a space to play on.

Anthony Beale, who is the 9th selected official on the City of Chicago's City Council, called the Pullman Community Center a "game-changer" for South Side sports. According to Chicago news, he believes that this center will change the game outcome because of the ability for the players to play even during the worst Chicago's seasons. The team took 30 years to get back to the Little League World Series, because of weather. The center will be built with the help from NFL and Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives, such as $5 million in federal disaster funds tied to a 2008 hurricane: up to $4 million more generated by a federal tax credit available to projects built in impoverished neighborhoods and $2 million in contributions from the Chicago Bears baseball team, the Major League Baseball and some of the professional athletes.

David Doing, the president of Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives nonprofit organization, believes "the need for indoor recreational space is there. The feeling was there for good outdoor park facilities but [we didn't have] indoor facilities for families and youth to enjoy when it's cold." The facility anticipates 1,200 people will use it every week because the center will be open at night for adult sports leagues. The Chicago city officer Beale believes this will increase the ability for others to play baseball or soccer on the synthetic turf without injuries and year round comfort.

The Chicago's new center Pullman will be located next to the Bishop Ford HWY, the interstate 94 in Illinois. The building contains several swimming pools and a small water park, a multi-sport field, gymnasium with jogging track, fitness room, separate lounge for seniors and young adults for their activities like music and craft rooms, and recording studio with a 400-seat auditorium. Outside on the center the 32-acre campus will have athletic fields for several sports - including artificial turf baseball field with a scoreboard, and a three-hole pitch-and-putt golf course. Having safe and enjoyable recreational opportunities to engage children and adolescents throughout the year is so important in keeping our young people off of the streets.

With such heavily utilized fields, the Chicago city is pleased to install the artificial turf athletic fields because of the benefits that they will receive in the end. The fields will save the cost on maintenance eliminating the use of harmful pesticides, fertilizers, lawn mowing and reduce the amount of watering and replanting. Also, the synthetic grass will conserve water on a typical soccer or football field, where grass field can typically consume from 2.5 to 3.5 million gallons of water annually. Finally, artificial turf is engineered to play, feel and look like a lifelike grass. It is designed to be durable, firm, comfortable, waterproof and uniformly even. Thus, it helps decrease the injuries to the players.

Artificial Grass Business Booming In North Texas!

syntheticgrass Artificial Grass Business Booming In North Texas!

Companies that manufacture or install artificial lawns are experiencing a boom in business, due to the drought-like conditions and watering restrictions in many North Texas cities.

But the synthetic lawns today aren't the same plastic AstroTurf made popular in the 1970s. The products on the market now, are not just used for putting greens and football fields either.

Tim Dvorak, owner of the company Synthetic Grass Pro, and gets calls every day from homeowners inquiring about artificial grass.

"I discussed this with many turf manufacturers, that's a big thing they notice. As soon as there are drought restrictions, watering restrictions, or an ordinance like the City of Dallas two-days a week restriction, it really just makes this industry explode," said Dvorak.

Today's synthetic lawns are made to stay cool underfoot, drain water well, and last for 10-15 years. The products come in different shades of green, different textures, and mimic different varieties of natural grass. Choosing artificial can be expensive upfront: prices range from $7.50 to $15 a square foot.

 

Many homeowners with artificial grass installed in their yards feel that the investment was worth it.

"The initial cost is expensive, but it's already paid for itself over the four years. Not having to re-sod it, not having to water. The yard guys[come less often]. So it's more than paid for itself," said Dvorak.

Many homeowners can be skeptical at the beginning, until they see the fake grass first-hand. 

Not all cities in North Texas are on board with artificial grass, though.

Frisco does not allow artificial turf at this time, and many homeowners' associations have rules.

Highland Park passed an ordinance restricting artificial turf to back yards.

Other cities, however, have no rules in place limiting synthetic grass. Those cities include Dallas, Arlington, Denton, and University Park.

Tools You Need to Install and Maintain Artificial Grass

Artificial grass accessories are often overlooked, when in reality some of the accessories are very useful. Some of the accessories include the easy seam machine, Zeo-Organic fill, and the turf groom.


EasySeam MachineThe EasySeam machine is a handheld electric tool that melts adhesive using a pre-programmed heating cycle.EasySeam doesn't get hot and there is no grass damage from the heat. It never touches the adhesive, therefore never makes a mess. It provides a consistent low-profile seam. Overall, it's very easy and convenient to use.

 

Turf Groom Grass RakeThe Zeo-Organic fill is a safer alternative to silica sand. It traps and controls odor and absorbs moisture very quickly. ZeoFill is designed to eliminate odors from pets by not allowing ammonium to convert into the gas which is the primary odor-causing agent in pet urine.

Nylon tines help maintain the turf without damaging it. Extend your lawn life and your investment.
