Landscaping project in Gaziantep (Turkey)

Synthetic grass fibres from TenCate Grass have been used in a landscaping project in the Turkish city of Gaziantep. TenCate Oasis™ now graces the city tram line. The quality and natural appearance of the product were contributory factors in the choice of fibre.

The tram rails in parts of the city now rest on a green bedding of synthetic grass − definitely enhancing the street scene in Gaziantep (South Turkey) in the process. This green area rejoices in the melodious name of the Emerald Necklace for Gaziantep. Highly appropriate: the tram connection runs in the form of a green necklace from one end of the city to the other.

The choice fell on the Bermuda Grass quality from the TenCate Oasis™ series of synthetic grass yarns. This synthetic grass fibre was selected because of the quality and realistic look & feel of the material. The synthetic grass yarns developed by TenCate in this respect satisfy all the demands of the customer, and the substantial technical support and rapid delivery and installation set the seal on the decision.

The grass system was installed by Hatko Sports Technologies, a  customer of TenCate Grass in Turkey.
