Greener Turf

The renovated Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., reopened in March as the first major stadium in the United States accredited as a LEED Structure. With objectives to save money and conserve water while keeping the ground moist, head groundskeeper Larry DiVito chose Turface AthleticsTM as his infield and outfield soil solutions. In the sand-based outfield, ProfileTM Greens GradeTM is blended at the roots for soil conditioning to conserve nutrients and fertilizer. In the new infield, DiVito blended Turface® MVP® with Turface® Pro League® on top.
