A complete artificial turf field is made up of the subfloor, base stone, artificial turf layer, sand layer, and rubber granules on top. The structure of an artificial turf field is quite special with many different layers including:

  • Lower base: is the ground surface used to build details for the artificial turf field. Before construction, the subgrade will be cleaned and the necessary subgrade compaction operations will be performed.
  • Base stone: a layer of stone spread on the subsurface to create good compression and bearing capacity for the yard. And crushed stone is a commonly used stone at this stage.
  • Artificial turf layer: the main material used to cover the surface of the artificial turf field, it has the same appearance as real grass.
  • Top layer of sand and rubber: after spreading the artificial turf layer, sand and rubber will also be spread evenly on the field to complete the turf construction process.
