- Hire Experienced and Trustworthy Contractors
It is crucial you short-list a minimum of 3 to 5 contractors from which you pick the most experienced contractor who has positive and trustable testimonials. To this extent, ensure you do a thorough background check before making a choice.
- Grass Type and Irrigation and Draining system
It is highly paramount to put the type of grass you would be going with into consideration. You could either go with the artificial or the real grass. If you go with the real grass, you would have to consider an irrigation system for wetting the grass strongly.
On the other hand, if you go with the artificial turf, you might not have to worry about irrigation, but you still have to worry about a draining system.
- Measures for Weather Safety
Ensure you put measures like installing an outdoor alerting system, in place for safety against dangerous weather conditions. Also, you have to bear fabric roof, lighting and parking space in mind. Provide your complex with sufficient LED lighting for night sporting activities and adequate parking space.
