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.
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.
