What is Hybridgrass


HATKO HYBRIDGRASS  combines all the benefits of a natural grass playing surface with the strength and durability of synthetic grass. 

The HYBRIDGRASS system consists of high quality synthetic grass fibers, tufted in a special patented backing incorporating over 50% voids enhancing the growing conditions for the natural grass.

HYBRIDGRASS carpet is installed on a carefully selected root zone layer and filled with a specifically defined root zone mixture before high quality sports field grass is seeded into the surface.

The natural grass grows between the synthetic grass fibers creating a strong and vigorous playing surface. The ‘open’ texture of the backing ensures that the grass roots are not obstructed in their vertical movement downwards.

In professional football, a quality playing surface is not only about the players’ experience but also about the impression created for viewers watching on TV, which can affect the image of a competition. Knowing the importance of high-quality playing surfaces, clubs and competition organisers work hard to prepare and maintain them to the highest level.

The FIFA Quality Programme for Natural Playing Surfaces, launched in October 2021, aims to harmonise the testing procedure and enable clubs and competition organisers to use the same criteria to compare the quality of natural playing surfaces.
