  • (1888PressRelease) June 03, 2020 - Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, recently renovated Wesleyan School’s natural grass field in Peachtree Corners, Ga. The new field from Sports Turf is embedded with innovative technologies and solutions that enhance the natural grass field while optimizing its integrity and performance advantages.

    Sports Turf installed TifTuf Bermuda, which is the latest “Tif” released from the University of Georgia turfgrass breeding program. After two decades of rigorous testing, this drought-resistant turfgrass required 38 percent less water than other varieties. TifTuf’s growth allows for faster establishment and quicker recovery compared to other Bermuda grasses making it the leading sports field product.

    Along with the TifTuf installation, Sports Turf designed a full underdrain system, sand-based rootzone and irrigation system. The TifTuf Bermudagrass was installed to increase the durability of the multipurpose facility and to help move water away at a faster rate through the underdrain and rootzone systems. This elite natural grass field can receive a large amount of rain and traffic while remaining playable all season.

    “I applaud Wesleyan for bucking the trend of moving towards artificial turf that we have seen in many recent projects,” said Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins. “Rather than watering the field from a municipal source or a well, it’s received from irrigation supplied by the campus detention pond. This speaks highly to the environmental stewardship of Wesleyan’s overall campus design.”

    Sports Turf Company specializes in construction and installation of all different types of sport surfaces including natural grass and artificial turf football, baseball, soccer fields, tennis courts and track surfaces. In addition, Sports Turf prides itself on serving as a consultant and owner’s advocate through the entire process of selecting the best facility drainage and surfaces to meet owners’ specific needs.
