Turf

Post by HawleyRocks »

Does anyone know how much turf would cost for a football field???

Not talking about at Allen ISD or anything, small school... Just wondering?

I heard we spent a lot initially in 2010 and about the same to redo it 11 years later. Was told we spent $1.2M initially and around $750K to update it here recently.

Hey Bud, thank you for the input. I tried to research it online and got into a can of worms, yes, what your talking is a lot of money, but in the grand scheme of things, it does not seem unsurmountable.

We have a bad situation at our football field as it is now one of the lowest places on campus, so just about any rain fall at all, floods us out. When I was in school in the 70's and early 80s, it was not like this. But all the new buildings have added to our problems. They have built drainage ways, but it does not take long for a large rain to cause us a lot of problems. So, this being said is why we play a lot of game at Hardin-Simmons.

Back on the funding of a new turf field, we are also in dire straits for new classrooms and no matter how much you want or need a new football field, education has to come first...

So, a very tough dilemma. Thanks for the info Windy...
