Eagle, ID — When a sports-loving family built the mega-sized home of their dreams, part of their vision included building an elaborate indoor and outdoor Sports Complex. They hired the experts at SYNLawn Idaho to enhance their new home with the installation of artificial turf to create a soccer field, putting green, batting cage, and an indoor soccer practice facility.
Preparing for a Multi-Sport Sports Complex Installation
Creating a multi-sport Sports Complex surface the entire family could enjoy together was a top priority for the homeowner. After researching companies throughout the region, owner Eric Pierce and the team at SYNLawn Idaho were selected since they were best equipped to handle the size and scope of the project. SYNLawn Idaho has extensive experience installing all sports surfacing, making them the perfect choice to create a premier sports complex for the family’s new house.
Before installing the sports surfacing, SYNLawn Idaho had to remove all debris, grade, level the entire area, and install turf and sand. There was substantial work involved with the initial dirt and debris removal and grading. The team had to cut around fencing for most of the soccer field and address the grade issues throughout the field and between the putting green and field. The team brought in a road grader to assist with leveling out the entire field with a perfect 1-inch sloped grade from front to back. This required more than 200 cubic yards of concrete mix and 3/8-inch minus aggregate. They also used a large power broom for the athletic fields. Additionally, the team had to hand cut-in white lines of turf and glue them down for the batting cage.
Creating a Multi-Sport Oasis with Artificial Surfacing
Once all areas were ready for the artificial surfacing to be installed, the team was able to proceed with creating a multi-sport oasis for the family using a variety of SYNLawn’s premium products, including:
- 13,500 square feet of SYNSport for the outdoor soccer field. SYNSport turf is engineered for multi-sport installations. Not only does it offer unmatched resiliency and support, it’s also the top choice for safety since the surfacing has an ASTM E108 Class A Fire Rating.
- 1,200 square feet of SYNPlay 48 with a 5mm padded cushion was used to create the outdoor batting cage, including the white lines. 650 square feet of SYNPlay 48 with pad was also used for the installation of the indoor soccer practice facility. This type of surfacing is ideal for areas of high foot traffic. Plus, its construction using low-pile, low-friction grass blades combined with an energy-absorbing cushion helps reduce the risk of common injuries.
- 450 square feet of SYNLawn Golf’s Precision Putt was used to create the backyard putting green. Known for its superior performance and ball control, this synthetic surface delivers the most realistic putting experience available.
All of the first-rate sports surfacing products used for the large-scale residential project will allow the family to enjoy their athletic areas together for many years to come.
