The grass is greener
Whether it’s for a national stadium, a golf course, a children’s play area, or a decorative lawn, nothing beats the appeal of a smooth, green carpet of grass – whether it’s natural or artificial. We have years of experience in the planting and maintenance of natural turf for golf courses, sports fields and gardens, but we also install and maintain artificial turf. We provide high standard synthetic turf solutions, and have installed over 150 turfs nationally and across borders.
Crafting and maintaining great playing facilities is about the love of the game, and the pursuit of excellence. For this reason, we have created one complete turf solution to maintain the highest standards in sporting and leisure facilities, using either natural or artificial turf. We provide complete turf solutions across South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa, giving you turnkey solutions from design and layout to earthworks, shaping, grassing and irrigation. We’re able to bring you unrivalled products by collaborating with global partners, achieving FIFA and FIH certification.
