Daniel Island is home to a myriad of lawn and landscaping businesses and one of the most unique is Sprinturf. The company offers a wide range of artificial turf products and it is the first company in North America to offer integrated polyethylene turf products manufactured in the United States.
Sprinturf provides a complete line of professional products from various types of artificial grass to infill options that make the turf feel and perform like natural grass. Corporate headquarters for Sprinturf and its sister company, ProGreen Synthetic Turf Systems, are located on Daniel Island’s Fairchild Street. Sprinturf also runs all its project management and estimating out of the Daniel Island office.
You may not know their name but chances are you have seen the company’s products at a variety of Lowcountry locations. Some of the local installations include The Citadel’s practice football field, the City of Hanahan’s new park and recreation facility, the Charleston Battery Stadium Kids Play area in the concourse outside of the stadium, and an outdoor area for visitors and staff at MUSC facilities.
ProGreen is part of Sprinturf’s landscape products division. ProGreen is the residential and commercial side of the company. ProGreen has been at the forefront of the synthetic grass market since 1987. ProGreen products are made with a unique set of polymers and configurations to meet the needs of the non-athletic markets.
ProGreen features a variety of products for lawns, commercial buildings, dog runs, playgrounds, putting greens, traffic medians, and small indoor sports applications.
ProGreen also specializes in providing installation of turf at homes, apartment complexes and local municipalities. Recently ProGreen completed a turf installation at the Daniel Island Club.
Greg Keating, president and CEO of the Daniel Island Club, worked with ProGreen to install the turf product in front of the stage at the Park Club and in smaller areas near retaining walls. “The product is tremendous. The area that was done looks great and it has created a space for children to play comfortably. The plantation mix that was there previously did not allow that. I enthusiastically recommend ProGreen,” he said.
Bryan Hoffman, director of marketing, said several key elements set Sprinturf and ProGreen apart from competitors. “We make and manufacture 100% of our turf here in the United States. We have two plants in Georgia and Alabama where all of our turf is custom made to our specifications. [We] have the most durable fields on the market and lead the industry in heat reduction and safety with our GreenPlay products,” he explained.
Hoffman added, “Sprinturf and ProGreen are American owned, American manufactured and all our people and investments are in America.”
