The first innovative hybrid turf system for high-performance and safe sports pitches because traction, stability and softness of the playing surface are characteristics players seek and only POWERgrass offers them 365 days a year.
POWERgrass combines the advantages of natural grass with the resistance of synthetic grass to offer a reinforced natural grass pitch for up to 30 hours a week.
POWERgrass has a positive environmental impact because it follows the teachings of regenerative agriculture which contributes to lower temperatures, carbon sequestration and air purification. Anchoring the natural grass to the synthetic turf preserves the soil from erosion and prevents damage from flooding.
The life cycle of the system is estimated at more than 20 years when combined with regular maintenance of the natural grass because it protects the synthetic fibres from UV radiation and achieves a perfect symbiosis of natural and synthetic grass.
The system requires reduced maintenance because it provides the ideal habitat for growing natural grass, which is more resistant to intensive trampling and therefore generates savings of more than 30% over its life cycle compared to other sports surfaces.
POWERgrass will never let you down because it is always playable, even when natural grass is missing for any reason.
In our latest realisation for the upgrading of the 'Riviera delle Palme' stadium in San Benedetto del Tronto, we outdid ourselves by handing over the pitch for play 17 days after seeding. After more than 40 matches, training sessions and finishing touches, the pitch has survived even a harsh and rainy winter without a single divot, and President Serafino's compliments have arrived with good reason.
Maintaining natural grass is not a mission impossible, even when the traffic is intensive, but in order to benefit the field year-round in an extensive manner, a well-designed hybrid grass system will provide multiple advantages over any other solution.
The resistance of natural grass to intensive play depends on the density of the grass and the development of a rich, deep root system that anchors itself deep in the soil. This can be achieved by constructing a drainage system and a filtering growing medium to prevent surface water stagnation and reduce soil compaction, creating ideal conditions for the growth of natural grass. A modern irrigation system, an efficient maintenance fleet and a qualified attendant complete the resources needed to effectively manage maintenance.
The skills of the designer are often underestimated when it comes to sports pitches because they look like simple structures. However, it requires cross-skills and precision in design because errors or omissions can generate additional costs throughout the life cycle of the work. Moreover, an area of 7-8 thousand square metres has a significant impact on public green assets.
As our president said, 'it's builder's time'. Indeed, there is a light at the end of the tunnel to overcome the most important crisis we have faced in decades, but we must be prepared because nothing will be the same as before. The design of public works is a central topic that few are prepared to approach with a holistic view. Most of the procedures laid down in the rules are ineffective because there is a tendency to distribute responsibilities to several parties, which in fact produces misunderstandings and disputes.
The POWERgrass company was founded to promote the hybrid grass system of the same name. Sports pitches made with the POWERgrass system are the most extraordinary innovation in the history of sports facilities because they are highly usable and safer for the health of the players. From the point of view of sports centre management, the POWERgrass system has a positive environmental impact due to low-cost ecological maintenance and a long service life of more than 20 years. In addition, at the end of the 20-year period, there is no need to replace the synthetic reinforcement as it is sufficient to continue growing natural grass.
In 2021, POWERgrass will be transformed into a Benefit Corporation which, in the exercise of an economic activity, in addition to the purpose of sharing profits, also pursues one or more aims of common benefit and operates in a responsible, sustainable and transparent manner towards people, communities, territories and the environment, cultural and social assets and activities, bodies and associations and other stakeholders.
