Hybrid mat pitch systems


HERO hybrid grass and ECLIPSE stabilised turf systems

Hybrid mat systems offer an alternative to stitched hybrid systems. MJ Abbott offers the HERO hybrid grass and ECLIPSE stabilised turf systems in conjunction with County Turf.

Both systems can be installed as a custom grown turf or as a mat laid with stitched seams, sand infilled and established from seed on site. Both options would be installed in collaboration with County Turf.

Both systems, used extensively in the worldwide professional sports arena, can be incorporated into any form of sports pitch construction, be it high-end gravel raft / rootzone type construction, or topsoil-based pitch design. This versatility enables us to deliver hybrid pitches to meet a range of budgets, whilst maintaining high quality playing surfaces.
