Grassy pitches

Grass surfaces. These are the most commonly used surfaces, especially for sports games. They are quite easy to obtain on normal soil substrate, and it is often possible to use surfaces that are spontaneously covered by grasses and similar plants. Grassy turf, in addition to certain properties favoring a certain game, has many properties that have a beneficial effect on humans. Above the turf surface, the lawn has a moderate humidity and temperature, and a higher oxygen content, especially on a sunny day. Green is also the most beneficial color for the human eye.
The greatest disadvantage of grass surfaces is the limited and quite low resistance to trampling. The best kept and cared for football pitches last only a week 4-8 hours of normal game load. Exceeding this number of hours of play, especially in unfavorable weather conditions, leads to progressive destruction. The lawn turf on the pitch is completely destroyed in the event of an uncontrolled use. The turf in the goal area is destroyed the fastest, a little later in the middle part. The dependence on weather conditions is also a big disadvantage of grass surfaces. In order to increase the mechanical resistance of grasslands and extend the service life, various complex methods of care are used: drainage, immersion heating and foil covering - protecting against deep freezing and snow cover. These efforts confirm the greatest suitability of the lawn turf as a surface for playing football. All efforts and attempts to replace it with plastic floor coverings with very similar properties are generally considered unsuccessful. Official football games are always held on grass pitches. For some games, like for example. volleyball, the grass surface is very good, however, due to the ease of fitting in normal use, it is not even recommended.
