Working with Turf Solutions Group was a good experience. Their pricing was excellent and they were responsive to any issues we had, plus they turned the job around in a couple of weeks. And when they say their work is guaranteed, it is really guaranteed. When it turned out that a small area of the field had defective glue, TSG came to Ithaca over a Thanksgiving weekend and reglued that surface!

Recreational land design and development company Turf Solutions Group (TSG) replaced two aging soccer / lacrosse indoor playing fields in Ithaca NY’s Community Recreation Center, changing out the deteriorating Astro-Turf with infilled synthetic turf and replacing the dasher board system with nets to give the fields a second life.

TSG earned this job because of its responsiveness. The first companies contacted by Russell Johnson, Director of Operations at the Ithaca Community Recreational Center, were not very enthusiastic. But when Johnson contacted Turf Solutions Group and explained what they needed, TSG responded by flying a representative into Ithaca within 48 hours. Due to a snowstorm, the flight was redirected to the Schenectady airport 155 miles away. After landing, the TSG representative drove through the snowstorm to reach Ithaca, NY’s Community Recreation Center, so he could take measurements and understand what they wanted. He then returned to the TSG headquarters in Peoria, Illinois.

“We’ve had a ton of compliments on the playing surface,” commented Johnson. “Working with Turf Solutions Group was a good experience.
