Abstract/Contents:Profiles SportGrassĀ® "a 100% natural grass playing surface grown in a layer of amended sand." Explains that "within the layer of sand are polypropylene grass blades tufted into a woven backing. Because the roots of the grass grow down through the synthetic blades and the woven backing, theoretically, the crown and root system of the plant are protected." Mentions several fields that use the SportGrass system, including the University of Utah and Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
