Arti­fi­cial turf (also called syn­thet­ic grass) is a pop­u­lar land­scap­ing solu­tion for indoor and out­door facil­i­ties alike, espe­cial­ly ath­let­ic fields. Where­as nat­ur­al grass requires a great deal of year-round main­te­nance (irri­ga­tion, mow­ing, mulching, pest con­trol, weed­ing, snow removal, etc.), arti­fi­cial turf pro­vides a sim­i­lar sur­face for foot traf­fic with­out all the upkeep. That said, there are still sev­er­al con­sid­er­a­tions to make when choos­ing the type of syn­thet­ic grass for your facil­i­ty, and some main­te­nance is required to keep your turf func­tion­al and fresh-looking.

At The Budd Group, our land­scap­ing ser­vices include arti­fi­cial turf infill instal­la­tion and main­te­nance for ath­let­ic facil­i­ties and more. Our experts can help you choose the right kind of syn­thet­ic grass and infill for your facil­i­ty, prop­er­ly set it up, and main­tain it.

What is Arti­fi­cial Turf Infill?

Arti­fi­cial turf sys­tems con­sist of two key com­po­nents: the syn­thet­ic blades them­selves and the infill (sev­er­al small par­ti­cles of a giv­en mate­r­i­al), which is placed between them. From a dis­tance, only the grass is vis­i­ble, but the infill is respon­si­ble for get­ting the grass to stand up, even after it has been com­pressed by feet, vehi­cles, or oth­er forms of impact. Not only does infill keep the turf upright, it also pro­tects the field from UV rays, deliv­ers the boun­cy feel of nat­ur­al grass, assists in drain­ing the field after rain, and, in some cas­es, can guard against the infes­ta­tion of bac­te­ria, fun­gi, and oth­er unwant­ed microbes.

Arti­fi­cial Turf Infill Options

Arti­fi­cial turf infill can be com­posed of dif­fer­ent mate­ri­als, some of which may be more or less suit­able for a giv­en ath­let­ic facil­i­ty. The main infill options include:

  • Sil­i­ca Sand: this is made of angu­lar quartz gran­ules and is typ­i­cal­ly the cheap­est option — good for facil­i­ties with min­i­mal use and low foot traf­fic, so per­haps not opti­mal for ath­let­ic facil­i­ties.
  • Acrylic Sand: an antimi­cro­bial option, acrylic coat­ed sand is durable, odor-free, and doesn’t absorb mois­ture or heat — this is a good option for small­er ath­let­ic fields and play areas, though it isn’t as boun­cy or padded as oth­er options, like rub­ber or sil­i­ca sand.
  • Rub­ber: com­mon­ly used for its elas­tic­i­ty and easy instal­la­tion — how­ev­er, rub­ber infill does absorb heat and emit dust when trod upon.
  • Wal­nut Shell: an organ­ic infill option, wal­nut shell has cool­ing prop­er­ties and min­i­mal neg­a­tive envi­ron­men­tal impact — it may pose an aller­gen risk, however.
  • Durafill: often regard­ed as the best (though most expen­sive) infill option, Durafill is com­posed of round­ed quartz core and offers cool, antimi­cro­bial cov­er­age — great for any appli­ca­tion, and cer­tain­ly for larg­er, more active ath­let­ic fields.

Dane Slaughter, Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District

I have worked with The Budd Group since 2011, and I have been very pleased and impressed with their staff, account managers, and regional support they provide. They have been very prompt to respond if there is an issue with the janitorial services. They provide an exceptional service and understand the importance of greeting our passengers and guests to allow them to have a wonderful experience when traveling. I view their service as a partnership and count on them daily to deliver exceptional quality to our tenants, passengers, staff, and business partners.

Guy Harley, Wake Forest University Health Sciences

The Budd Group provides exceptional custodial services for our campus. We are grateful for their service to our patients, families, visitors, staff and faculty for over 40 years. The Budd Group is very responsive to our requests and needs, and we truly believe in their loyalty and commitment to our success.

Billy D. Smith, Kershaw County School District

I personally have had the best experience and relationship with The Budd Group. From their owner all the way to their day porters, they take great pride in representing the company name, and doing the best job they can. During these unprecedented pandemic times The Budd Group has been flexible and responsive to the changing needs our district has had in every way. With every firm that we have used there have been issues, but no firm has ever been as responsive, and as quick to fix whatever the issue may be as The Budd Group!

Nick Mincey, Orange County Schools

The Budd Group has gone above and beyond in providing custodial services to our district. Following a lengthy RFP process, we as a committee selected them to help our district achieve a new and rejuvenating approach to campus cleaning and facility care. We asked them to take on a difficult task of staffing, and preparing schools for the start of our school year with only 6 weeks of transition time. We all knew it would be difficult at best. However, with the help of their Human Resources department and successful hiring strategies, we were up and running by the time our Staff members began to enter the campuses for the school year.

Blaise Winch, Capsugel

The Budd Group has been providing services to Capsugel for over 6 years. The service provided has been excellent and professional. They perform duties in multiple locations including a manufacturing plant, distribution center, office area, machine shop and fitness center. They clean all of the following types of areas at those various locations: office, bathroom, cafeteria, fitness center, locker room, shipping/receiving and CGMP production areas. As it relates to CGMP experience, they also created a sanitation program for the cGMP areas, maintain and created their own operating instructions, maintain document control and follow all cGMP guidelines for hygiene and documentation.

Susan A. Maddux, Presbyterian College

The Budd Group has become a true partner with Presbyterian College. They have taken the time to fully understand our mission and become a true part of the Blue Hose family. The housekeeping staff often pull off miracles when given very little time to clean a space on campus between events. They work long hours and respond 24/7 to emergencies on campus. The landscaping team has transformed the grounds of the campus such that the college regularly gets positive feedback from those who visit the campus. Before outsourcing to The Budd Group, the college performed these services in house. We have seen significant improvement in both housekeeping and grounds since The Budd Group took over.
