A Durable Solution
An important benefit of recycled synthetic turf, also known as artificial turf, is its ability to hold up over heavy use without the issues of natural grass. Turf is always ready for play or use, no need to worry about weather, pesticide residue or a dormant season. Because of its consistent availability, a synthetic turf field is also a reliable source of rental revenue for schools and communities.
Our team of landscaping experts assess the condition of the repurposed turf and discard any sections that do not meet our quality standards. As a result, your cleaned and installed turf is like new.
An Economical Solution
By repurposing synthetic turf, the upfront cost to a durable, long-lasting ground cover is reduced, making it a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution. In addition, maintenance costs are significantly less than natural turf, because of the lack of mowing, need for irrigation systems or use of chemicals. There are some very cost effective home remedies for maintaining your new turf. The RMTS staff will be happy to discuss these with you upon purchase of your turf.
An Eco-Friendly Solution
As water access becomes more precious, communities are looking at synthetic turf as an option to preserve resources. The Southern Nevada Water Authority estimates that every square foot of natural grass replaced saves 55 gallons of water per year. Add those gallons up over time, and that’s a lot of water. Currently, more than a third of Americans are at risk of losing affordable drinking water, including areas in southern Colorado. Synthetic turf helps to divert water, a critical necessity, from lawns to people and families.
Taking care of natural grass also includes regular maintenance. Exhaust from lawn mowers, weed eaters, edgers and trimmers contribute to high levels of ozone in the air. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 54 million Americans mow their lawns each weekend, using 800 million gallons of gas per year and producing tons of air pollutants. Garden equipment engines, which have had unregulated emissions until the late 1990's, emit high levels of carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides, producing up to 5% of the nation's air pollution.
Turf Recycling Process
RMTS uses a highly-sophisticated repurposing process to prepare the turf for you. Routed through a number of hydraulically powered horizontal turbines, infill materials (crumb rubber and sand), dirt and other items stuck to its backing are removed. Once the turf is clean and dried, it is ready to be re-installed.
Since the turf is recycled, pieces may be marked with lines from the sports field. You may choose to cut the turf to ensure a uniform green cover or leave the lines for continued sports use or other applications.
