An installation of Surface America's RecSport Turf product at a school


A very natural look every day regardless of weather and use.

Surface America’s RecSport Turf uses the highest grade synthetic turf. It features a blend of green upright fibers and olive thatch polyethylene fibers that are very soft yet ultra-durable. The turf roll is adhered to a resilient rubber basemat over asphalt or concrete. RecSport Turf provides great footing and shock absorption for high-traffic, recreation, and sport outdoor areas.

The extremely durable turf maintains the look of perfectly-groomed grass without any maintenance. Rainwater flows horizontally or through or across the turf surface, depending on drainage requirements.


Wheelchairs and walking aids can negotiate the turf surface without difficulty, thus conforming to the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and ASTM F-1951 Determination of Surface Accessibility.
