Where to Buy Hybrid Grass?

Where to Buy Hybrid Grass?

Sports on the graass are quite common today. That’s why turf sports should be done on quality grounds. Nowadays, artificial turf floors are widely used and provide the opportunity to make these sports in a quality environment. Artificial grass for many years, especially on the football field by improving the quality of the game provides a quality game to the audience. However, in the world where everything has developed and changed, hybrid grass technology has been revealed by considering alternatives to artificial turf ground. Hybrid grass is produced by Hatko Sport with the latest generation technology. At this point, we have given the answer to the question of where to buy hybrid grass. Hatko Sport is a company with many references that have proven itself in the grass industry for nearly 30 years. It has achieved many successes by building football fields all over the world.

Nowadays, the closed architecture of the stadiums leads to the deterioration of the ground much more easily due to the insufficient air flow and the adverse conditions caused by insufficient sunlight. Hybrid turf system has been developed for the strengthening of natural grass due to the shortening of the times of reconstruction, repair, modification and maintenance. The hybrid turf system reinforces natural turf areas with artificial turf fibers and builds technically perfect areas. This allows multi-functional use of stadium grounds and offers extra income to clubs. Areas covered with hybrid grass can be used for many years of peace of mind because they do not wear out easily. Hybrid grass have been preferred by many football clubs in recent years, providing a strong turf system by combining with natural grass structure. The number of hybrid grass pitch used in the world and Turkey is increasing every day.

Hatko Sport is Turkey’s leader Hibrit grass manufactturing company. While creating natural grass roots, it provides strong durability thanks to the injection of artificial grass at a depth of 20 cm. The field, 95% of which is made of natural grass, offers a combination of durability and performance comfort. That’s why it’s fun to play on a hybrid grass field. Because the risk of injury is very low. Since the ground is produced by mixing with artificial turf, its slippery appearance is considerably reduced. There is little risk of injury on the ground that does not slip easily. In this way, professional or amateur club players can adapt themselves to their games more easily. Because they’re not afraid to get hurt.

The vertically injected synthetic fibers are also a great support for drainage. Due to its abrasion resistance, it reduces the cost of treatment and care and provides a continuous healthy and prestigious field.

How to Maintain Hybrid Grass Fields?

How to Maintain Hybrid Grass Fields?

In hybrid grass areas, in areas where the hybridization machine cannot enter or deform, manual hybridization is performed to recover the worn areas in a short time. In natural grass fields, this application is carried out as seed spreading process. Root attitude and growth time are prolonged due to reasons such as the seeds flying from wind to place, being eaten as feed by birds, or not receiving the necessary water, light and temperature depending on weather conditions. In addition, roller grass is also applied in natural fields in order to realize the renovation process in a shorter time. However, this application is more economical than the spreading process involves more cost.

When the hybrid and natural grass applications in the study areas were examined, it was seen that the deformed sections in the hybrid areas renewed themselves more quickly and in a short time during the monthly maintenance periods. As Hatko Sport, we make the highest quality hybrid grass fields.

After hybridization, hybrid grass fields enter solarium (artificial daylight) and mature grass seeds more quickly. Grass roots, which normally develop between 8-12 cm, are thus coiled into fibers 20 cm deep and the field is ready more quickly.

In the match and training fields prepared for the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England and Wales, 53 natural and hybrid turf fields were selected for analysis and some mechanical tests were conducted to measure the field quality. Primarily, samples were taken from the field soils by a 40 mm diameter cylinder and dipped into a 220 mm depth and analyzed the development stages of the grass. In the later stages, factors such as durability, shear resistance, hardness, which should be subjected to higher mechanical tests, were analyzed.

Comparison of Natural Grass Field and Hybrid Grass Field

  • Natural grass field and hybrid grass field were compared.
  • It has been observed in two different fields applied that hybrid sites with artificial fibers need to be irrigated more frequently.
  • This is because the sun’s rays are held by artificial fibers, causing the soil to cool late.

Looking at the first turf format, the natural grass is mowed to the standard 250-300 mm for playing football, while in hybrid pitches the first form is mowed to the length of 200 mm artificial hybrid fibers. In the later forms, standard 250-300 mm forms are made to prevent the mowing of hybrid grass. Dilution process is performed after planting in natural grass fields. However, this process is not performed on hybrid soils.

Ventilation is done with thinner nails on hybrid floors and thicker nails on natural floors. This prevents damage to the artificial fibers. Sandblasting process is performed once a year by laying only foggy fine sand on hybrid surfaces. The reason for this is to prevent the thickness of the sand to rise above the artificial fibers. It is applied to natural grass surfaces by mixing with river sand turf. The hybridizing brush is used to steep the artificial fibers lying on the ground after shape. On natural grass surfaces this is done with normal hard-tipped brushes. In another study, the hybrid lawn application designed, tested and patented by the University of Pisa was classified as a natural turf field made up of natural lawns growing on artificial turf and reinforced by FIFA.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the characteristics of the game and to determine the abrasion resistance after the rugby and football competitions in 2-5 months period. World-leading hybrid turf stadium led by Wembley Stadium, Emirates (Arsenal), Etihad (Manchester City), Old Trafford (Manchester United), White Hart Lane (Tottenham), St. James Park (Newcastle United), Goodison Park ( Everton), San Siro (Milan / Inter), Amsterdam Arena (Ajax), Santiago Bernabeu (Real Madrid), Donbass Arena (Shakhtar Donetsk). Turkey also hybrid grass applications is increasing every day. In another study, 40 football teams in Victoria and Western Australia were measured at 9 different points on 20 grounds during 2007-2008 season and 352 of 402 injuries were found to be related to ground hardness at the points (Twomey et al. 2012). This has shown that in sports areas where hybrid or natural grass is applied, particular attention must be paid to the soil being too soft or too hard and the dosage of granules and fibers mixed into the sandfill.

As can be seen, hybrid grass field is a very profitable investment compared to natural grass field. Also the hybrid grass maintenance is easy.  For further information please contact Hatko Sport.

How The Use Of Hybrid Grass Become Widespread?

How The Use Of Hybrid Grass Become Widespread?

When we look at the areas covered with grass, it is seen that they use different areas. Especially because of the deformability of printable turf soils in sports fields with high density and wide areas (football, rugby, golf, etc.), outdoor concerts and recreation areas, alternative solutions have been started to be investigated instead. After the research, artificial turf was developed first. Later, in the 1990s, hybrid turf method was found and applied in sports fields. Hatko Sport is a hybrid grass manufacturer. It has many references that proved its success in the sector.

This method, which is reinforced with 20 million artificial fibers and is a semi-artificial, semi-natural grass, is injected under the ground with machines and thus strengthens the natural grass roots. In this study, 40 in the world in the hybrid lawn method implemented in five football fields in Turkey, Trabzon Medical Park Arena, with Rize Çaykur Didi has uncovered Football Stadium in the implementation phase and natural grass than the floor advantages. This invention is a novel invention for outdoor use; It is thought that it will give better results in terms of factors such as ground and post-application maintenance, longevity, easy deterioration.

Grass; is a plant that covers the soil surface, develops frequently, has a homogeneous appearance and is kept short-cut. Located on the top surface of rural areas, green areas and sports fields, this plant lives on a grass carrier layer or a special soil layer. It is composed of herbaceous plants which do not have agricultural benefit or do not serve such purpose. Due to the fact that both the stem part and the leaves are much stronger and more durable, the grass species belonging to the family of the genus Agrostis (Peacocks), Festuca (Yumaklar), Poa (Clusters) and Lolium (Lawns) are applied as a mixture of grass especially in sports fields.

  • No type of grass shows the best results in the area where it is planted.
  • For this purpose, the area to be planted must be analyzed in advance according to some factors.
  • And these factors should be considered in natural grass planting.

The choice of grass plants that can grow optimally for a healthy grass area is related to how the lawn is used, where it is grown, the level of continuity acceptable, how the maintenance will be and what its appearance is. The grass surfaces were first XIII. century was used for bowling. Later, at the end of the same century, cricket, a club sport, was played on the grass. For other outdoor sports such as football and golf, XVI. century first grass fields were used.

Hybrid Grass Produced as an Alternative to Natural Grass

When we look at today, there is an interest in football. This sport, which is in great demand in terms of sporting activity, increases the use of natural grass surfaces. Different maintenance stages are needed due to factors such as deformation of natural grass soils, slow development, substrate texture, drainage, natural factors, weeds, insects. For these reasons, alternative ground suggestions which are suitable for sports on grass fields, which can remain on the ground for a longer time and are more durable have been developed.

Scientific and academic researches have revealed artificial turf and hybrid turf applications as an alternative to natural grass. Artificial grass, the raw material of which is petroleum, is formed by the weaving of yarns consisting of rubber granular filled material.

Hybrid grass is a mixture of artificial grass and natural fibers. Even if artificial turf is an alternative to natural turf areas, athletes have been criticized for wear due to fall on these surfaces, temperature measured during summer and bad rubber odor, and could not withstand high usage levels of public sports grounds and stadiums. As a result of long-term tests, it has been determined that hybrid systems respond to these problems in terms of differentiation properties of artificial fibers and reinforcers. Hybrid Grass is a hybrid grass that contains both natural and synthetic grass. Synthetic turf, which we call synthetic, provides natural grass roots to be tucked into the artificial grass by being stuck under the surface.

As you can see, hybrid grass is even more popular than artificial turf lately. Contact Hatko Sport for more information.

What is Hybrid Grass and Where is it Used?

What is Hybrid Grass and Where is it Used?

As you know, the use of artificial turf is very common in sports fields. However, in recent years different alternatives have been considered for artificial turf. As a result of the researches, a new field floor was created with a mixture of artificial grass and natural grass. We call this type of ground hybrid grass. Hybrid grass is defined as a type of grass consisting of the combination of natural grass with synthetic fibers. Hybrid grass, also known as natural grass, is a hybrid grass that includes both natural and synthetic grass. Artificial turf, which we call synthetic, is stuck deep under the surface, so that natural grass roots are entangled in artificial grass. Thus, a more robust structure will be formed. This robustness will not allow the lawn to rise and the ground to deteriorate.

As Hatko Sport, we have many references and successes in the artificial turf sector in the world. We have built many sports fields all over the world and we continue to do so. Hybrid grass, which is the state-of-the-art technology, reaches you with Hatko quality. Now let’s examine the hybrid grass a little more.

Hybrid grass or reinforced natural grass is a hybrid grass that includes both natural grass and synthetic grass. Synthetic grasses are stuck deep under the surface, so that the natural grass roots are entangled in artificial grass. Thus, stronger root grass is obtained. The ground we see in the field deterioration and grass removal is not experienced. It is also very easy to transport. The grass can easily be raised and re-laid for events on the football field.

Hybrid turf characteristics;

  • Hybrid grass is a combination of nature and technology.
  • It is also considered a 100 percent natural grass.
  • Advantages are the quality of playing on natural grass ground,
  • Advantage of use during four seasons,
  • No grass breaks,
  • Preservation of grass roots,
  • Renew itself quickly,
  • No need for re-germination,
  • Easy transition to sports activities after events such as concerts

As we can sort the properties.

  • Hybrid grass installation is so easy.

Hybrid turf is a great advantage due to the closed and sun-free architecture of the newly designed stadiums. Indoor stadiums implemented by clubs, especially those who do not want to be affected by weather opposition, are among the places where hybrid turf application is frequently seen.

Hybrid turf is one of the most preferred methods due to the design of the new generation stadiums which minimizes the weather conditions. Due to the lack of air flow and sunlight, natural lawns that wear out very easily also bring many maintenance costs. Reconstruction, repair, modification and maintenance need is becoming more and more preferred due to the shortening of the time. Hybrid grass has been developed for strengthening natural grass. The hybrid grass system reinforces natural grass areas with artificial grass fibers and builds technically perfect areas. This allows multifunctional use of stadiums and offers extra income to clubs.

As we have seen, the hybrid grass floor formed by combining artificial grass with natural grass has recently become popular all over the world. As Hatko Sport, we can cover your field with hybrid grass and make you a profitable investment. For more information please contact us
