Lee’s Summit Gets Fresh Grass with Sporturf

The Lee’s Summit Baptist Church in Lee’s Summit, MO did not have an adequate play area on site to grow their children’s program to where church leaders wanted it to be. Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals was hired to upgrade their playground surfacing to a combination of Fresh Grass PL929 and Sporturf 36. Now the church is able to allow the children to play outside without fear of mud holes and dirty clothes.

Craig Shonk started Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals LLC as a way to pair together ISO 9001 synthetic turf manufacturing with an ASBA Certified Field Builder for synthetic turf fields to better serve clients throughout the Midwest.

Sporturf Fresh Grass is a signature Playground product with a thatch system which provides added body, reducing the amount of infill needed. The four-color blend of this surface provides a truly authentic look and feel that resembles a natural lawn. This product can also be used for landscapes, pet areas, fringes, and much more. This product can also be installed indoors or outdoors on concrete or a compacted aggregate base.

 

Humphrey Elementary School Chose Fresh Grass

The Humphrey Elementary School playground is the 2nd project the district has contracted Craig Shonk and Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals to build. For Humphrey, MWSTP converted an old mulch chip playground to a stone base with a drain tile. The turf the school chose was a combination of Fresh Grass PL929 for the body of the playground and inserts of Sporturf 36 in the high wear areas such as underneath slides and swings.

Lindenwood Chose Fielder’s Choice by Sporturf

A few years ago the Lindenwood University athletic department, located in St. Charles, MO, was making the final transition from NAIA to NCAA Division II, and many areas on campus were going through renovations. Part of those renovations were new baseball and softball fields outfitted with synthetic turf by Sporturf dealer Environmental Turf Services, LLC.

“Lindenwood is excited to install the new Enviroturf baseball and softball turf fields,” said John Creer, Director of Athletics. “This seems to be the direction collegiate programs are going and it is nice to be at the forefront of this move.”

“This is an exciting time for softball and baseball with the installation of the turf,” said softball head coach Don Loberg. “Not many fields have this opportunity which will allow us to practice and play games when other fields are wet and unplayable. It will save us time and money with not having to seed, fertilize, water the field, and tarping.”

The renovation of the fields was expected to help bring bigger and better athletes to the school in addition to improving the facilities.

According to Creer, “We also anticipate these new fields will assist our coaches in recruitment of top caliber student-athletes and further development of our programs.”

The product installed was Sporturf Fielder’s Choice. Fielder’s Choice is a product designed with the game of baseball in mind. This product should be installed outdoors on a compacted aggregate base. Since it is custom designed for baseball, Fielder’s Choice has the added durability designed to reduce infill splash and migration which is extremely important in gameplay.

Schlitt Park Upgrades Baseball Field with Sporturf™

Recently Sporturf™ dealer, All Synthetic Group-Midwest, and J & L Strawn Sports Construction installed a project at the legendary Schlitt Park located in Springfield, IL. Schlitt Parke is a 5-acre neighborhood park that was added to the park system in 1971.
Jeremy Strawn of All Synthetic Group-Midwest stated, “A few months ago ASG and J&L Strawn Sports Construction were approached about designing and renovating a local field here in Springfield, a field that over the years has become a staple in the Springfield Baseball community and a place where so many kids over the years hit their first ball…and now those kids are parents who are bringing their kids to play there too.”
Springfield Southwest Baseball Association and the Springfield Park District wanted to transform and equip Schlitt Park with lighting upgrades, backstop fencing, netting, windscreens, dugouts, press box and an all-weather synthetic infield. All together, this created a dramatic change in the facility and made the field suitable for play for years to come.
