Hybrid grass is a type of turf known as reinforced natural grass and has been preferred over artificial turf in football in recent years.
The fact that natural grass is not durable and artificial turf cannot provide natural texture in stadiums showed that a new grass system is needed.
This new lawn system should provide both longevity and ease of use in all four seasons.

It is suitable for the new generation stadiums. Hybrid turf application is applied to all newly built stadiums in the world.
Today, many sports clubs have changed their artificial turf astroturf floors to hybrid turf. One of the most important reasons for the widespread use of hybrid grass as a football ground is that natural grass is a suitable ground type for football. However, the longevity of natural grass and the high maintenance cost necessitated the development of artificial turf.
In time, other alternatives have been started to be considered instead of artificial turf in order to increase the quality of the football ground. As a result of these research and studies, hybrid grass has emerged.
Hybrid grass is the closest ground type to natural grass and the ground quality is very high because it is reinforced with artificial grass yarns.
So, what are the advantages of hybrid grass? Why should hybrid grass be preferred instead of artificial grass or natural grass? Let’s examine.

While hybrid turf is used in stadiums, first of all, specially produced artificial turf is laid on the field. Natural grass seeds are then planted between artificial grass.
Afterwards, hybrid grass formation is determined. As the natural grass grows, it clings to the artificial turf and hybrid turf emerges. Hybrid grass is not a system that degrades over time like natural grass. On the contrary, since artificial grass clings to the ground, there are no breakages. This provides both ease of use and does not deteriorate the ground. In this way, the owners of the stadium enjoy the pleasure of owning a prestigious stadium.
For this reason, many big football clubs in the world are integrating hybrid turf into their stadiums.
