What is 3G Grass?

3G grass is a type of synthetic turf used for nearby sports pitches for activities such as football and rugby. The synthetic fibres offer a porous surfacing type which allows water to drain through easily. This is great for sporting facilities in local schools and leisure centres, as the facility can be used all year round in any weather - making it an all-weather surface. Due to the permeable properties, the pitch will not become waterlogged or flooded - this means that matches will not have to be cancelled due to bad weather. 

It is important to think about the sports you want to play. The sports you play on 3G surfaces will not be the same as those played on 2G. To learn about the sports you can play on 2G surfaces, please have a look at this page. http://artificialturfpitchreplacement.co.uk/new-surfacing/2g-astroturf-surfaces/stirling/shannochill/ Our team can offer details on the different surface options and advise you on the best one to have installed for your facility.

3G grass is a great alternative to regular turf, as less maintenance is required and the surface lasts a long time if the correct maintenance is carried out. We would recommend regularly drag brushing, cleaning and rejuvenating the facility. However, if the sport surface is old and worn out we can carry out a full resurface which involves ripping up the existing surface and replacing it with a brand new manmade carpet.
