Description: Yerba Buena High School constructed a new pool on their campus. They envisioned beautifying a nearby space for students to congregate and relax during swim meets. To meet the District’s standards, grass or DG would need to be installed.
Before and After
Background: Previously, natural grass had presented the District with many issues. When the grass was cut, clippings would often litter the pool. Alternately, DG dust could potentially blow into the water and endanger the pool equipment. The ideal material would help prevent debris, meet the District’s standards, and allow for low-cost maintenance.
Method of Approach: KYA recommended synthetic turf as an alternative solution to the DG and grass standard. This would solve Yerba Buena High School’s concerns by eliminating debris, maintaining pool cleanliness and safe guarding against pool equipment damage.
Result: The project was successfully completed on time. The District was happy with the final outcome of their new space. The turf created a beautiful area for students to enjoy and relax, while also meeting all the District’s standards. The turf will continue to hold its appearance for the next 10-15 years with minimal upkeep.
