Abstract/Contents:Requests information on whether "costs to maintain an artificial turf athletic field are significantly less than a natural turf field." Responds that while synthetic turf appears to be less expensive, its maintenance requirements are most cost demanding. Provides examples as to how synthetic turf may require more money in its upkeep. Indicates that synthetic fields may also need to be replaced after several years as "most companies will not stand behind a synthetic field (guarantee it) for more than 8 years." Gives links to several websites to acquire more information on synthetic turf.
