Did you know that there are many reasons why artificial turf has advantages over natural grass at every airport in the country? For example, rescue and firefighting equipment vehicles can reliably drive on the artificial turf surface without the problem with slipping and sliding with natural grass. Artificial turf doesn’t attract rodents and other wild life because it is not a source of food, shelter or water for wildlife, which reduces the risk of wildlife colliding with planes. Artificial turf will not wash away or become muddy, and it helps to stabilize runway and taxiway shoulders. Artificial turf has less maintenance, which means fewer workers need security clearances. And there is less chance of runway incursions by maintenance machines. These are just some of the great reasons why today’s airports are using beautiful artificial turf.
