There are three reasons to water natural turf.

  1. Keep it healthy. Regularly scheduled watering promotes deep-root growth, leading to firmer footing conditions and a more visually appealing sports field.
  2. Keep it playable. Healthy, resilient turf is able to stand up to the rigors of frequent games and practices.
  3. Keep it affordable. Consistent irrigation prevents hot spots that can require additional care and maintenance, freeing up your crew and budget for other projects.

There are three reasons to water synthetic turf.

  1. Keep it cool. In a hot climate, irrigation can decrease surface temperature by 33 percent, increasing your players’ comfort and reducing odor from recycled rubber.
  2. Keep it clean. Regular irrigation can deter the development of bacteria, reducing the possibility of player infection.
  3. Keep it safe. Players prefer irrigated playing surfaces, as they offer a softer playing surface with limited friction, which leads to less skin burns and fewer injuries.

But there’s only one complete solution: Rain Bird.

 

Enhance safety by preventing overwatering.

Sloppy field conditions can lead to poor play and even injuries. But a Rain Bird system promotes safe, reliable conditions by watering evenly and shortening your watering window, so your turf is ready for action when your players take the field. Rain Bird’s complete solution is also designed to become a seamless part of your turf to protect your athletes and aesthetics.

Stay within budget by saving time, money, and water.

You want to cut costs and water use. Rain Bird is uniquely prepared to help. Pressure regulating systems optimize flow rate to conserve water. Powered by current weather data, Rain Bird controllers only irrigate when the landscape requires it, saving you additional time and water. And Rain Bird offers a host of other innovative technologies designed to make the most of every water drop—and budget.

Be confident with industry-leading support.

Our team of experts can help assess your unique challenges and opportunities, then craft a plan that’s right for you. We offer a variety of design tools, including blueprints and a comprehensive irrigation product legend. Once your system is in place, we’ll stand behind it with world-class service and support.
