MIXTO: A PERFECT BLEND OF NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL TURF

Mixto is a reinforced natural hybrid surface, specifically designed to serve a variety of needs for sports surfaces. It consists of a synthetic and a natural grass component, where the artificial matrix is perfectly designed to better promote the initial germination, growth and development of the natural grass.

This composite system creates the right conditions for perfect oxygenation, permeability of the surface layer and an ideal air-water-soil balance, whilst also preventing the formation of muddy areas or waterlogging.

Mixto provides stability, permeability and maximum safety for athletes, with reduced maintenance costs compared to 100% natural surfaces

idverde is the UK and Europe’s leading specialist supplier of green services, delivering expert grounds maintenance, landscape construction, sports surfaces, arboriculture and civil engineering services for a range of public and private sector customers.

Operating from a network of 80+ locations throughout the UK, the idverde team is perfectly placed to deliver installation and ongoing maintenance support to Mixto customers.

Strengths

SURFACE CONSISTENCY

Regular use does not compromise Mixto’s perfect playing quality.

PERMEABILITY

The system uses materials that guarantee no change in permeability of the substrate.

RESISTANCE

The added strength of the artificial grass reduces the wear on the natural grass, enables faster surface recovery after play, and gives unrivalled season-long playing hours.

SAFETY

The stable and uniform playing surface reduces the risk of accidents. The hardness value (Clegg hammer) can be managed as required.

TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE

Smoothness, bounce, player and ball interactions are optimal. Outstanding stability.

EASE OF MAINTENANCE

Day-to-day maintenance is the same as for natural grass, but Mixto is easier to manage during the recovery stage.

COST EFFECTIVENESS

Mixto delivers high economic sustainability. The ratio of investment / hours of use is better and highly competitive compared to that of other systems. Maintenance costs are also greatly reduced.

INSTALLATION/USE

Through sowing: end to end installation time of 78 weeks.

By laying turf rolls that have been pre-grown in nurseries: immediate use, convenience and speed of installation even for the smallest replacements.

EASY TO REPAIR

The system allows for a variety of different uses beyond sports (such as events or concerts).

Any localised damage can be quickly repaired as small areas of Mixto are easy to carry out.

REGENERATION

Mixto can be regenerated after each season using virtually the same process as fibre sand or other sand systems.  The thatch can be stripped using a Koro or similar machinery, and it can also be aerated using solid tines on machinery such as a ProCore.

COMPLETE SYNERGY BETWEEN NATURE AND TECHNOLOGY

The Mixto system creates a bond between the synthetic fibres and natural grass, which is anchored to the special primary support system. This ensures maximum surface stability and prevents both snags and divoting during play. The added strength from the artificial turf and support system improves the durability of the surface, with playing time increased to around three times that of natural turf. This is achieved without any noticeable change in surface performance for players, as the overall impression is almost identical to that of fully natural turf, albeit with increased stability underfoot.

Mixto is a system suitable both for the construction of entirely new pitches or the resurfacing of existing natural grass pitches.

ON SITE SEEDING:

Mixto system installation with seeding on location is ready for use after 7-8 weeks.

The use of certified materials for sub-soil construction and following the correct technical procedures enables this.

LAY & PLAY METHOD:

Pre-cultivated turf (big rolls) from nurseries can be quickly laid for immediate use.This characteristic of the Mixto system makes it flexible and highly adaptable. It also enables partial replacements or repairs to be carried out if required.

QUALITY SURFACES LEAD TO RESULTS

MATERIALS

Our unique ‘S’ profile Low Density Polyethylene fibres are combined with a natural matrix, which is carefully selected for each installation.

PLAYABILITY

Mixto allows athletes to play safely from the first day after turf laying, achieving excellent levels of technical performance, e.g. hardness, smoothness, bounce, athlete-surface and ball-surface interaction.

SERVICE

The experience and know-how of our specialists in the UK, France and Italy ensures the best fit for your needs in the design, installation and aftercare phases. Our professional and technical support ensures high levels of performance from the playing field over time.

MAINTENANCE
