idverde is the UK’s sole supplier of Mixto, a reinforced natural hybrid surface, specifically designed to serve a variety of needs for sports surfaces. It consists of a synthetic and a natural grass component, where the artificial matrix is perfectly designed to better promote the initial germination, growth and development of the natural grass. Suitable for the construction of entirely new pitches or the resurfacing of existing natural grass pitches.

Mixto’s composite system creates the right conditions for perfect oxygenation, the permeability of the surface layer and an ideal air-water-soil balance, whilst also preventing the formation of muddy areas or waterlogging.

Mixto provides stability, permeability, and maximum safety for athletes, with reduced maintenance costs compared to 100% natural surfaces.

Complete synergy between nature and technology

The Mixto system creates a bond between the synthetic fibres and natural grass, which is anchored to the special primary support system, ensuring maximum surface stability and preventing snags and divoting during play. The added strength from the artificial turf and support system improves the durability of the surface, with playing time increased to around three times that of natural turf. This is achieved without any noticeable change in surface performance for players, as the overall impression is almost identical to that of fully natural turf, albeit with increased stability underfoot.

On-site seeding

Installation with seeding on location is ready for use after 7-8 weeks. The use of certified materials for sub-soil construction and following the correct technical procedures enables this.

Lay and play method

Pre-cultivated turf (big rolls) from nurseries can be quickly laid for immediate use. This makes it a flexible and highly adaptable system, and enables partial replacements or repairs to be carried out if required.

Surface consistency

Regular use does not compromise its perfect playing quality.

Permeability

Uses materials that guarantee no change in permeability of the substrate.

Resistance

The added strength of the artificial grass reduces wear on natural grass, enables faster surface recovery after play, and gives unrivaled season-long playing hours.

Cost-effective

Delivers high economic sustainability. The ratio of investment/hours of use is better and highly competitive compared to other systems. Maintenance costs are also reduced.

Regeneration

Can be regenerated after each season using almost the same process as fibre sand or other sand systems. The thatch can be stripped using a Koro or similar machinery, and it can be aerated using solid tines on machinery such as a ProCore.

Technical performance

Smoothness, bounce, player, and ball interactions are optimal with outstanding stability.

Maintenance

Day-to-day maintenance is the same as for natural grass, but Mixto is easier to manage during the recovery stage. idverde can provide bespoke maintenance packages.

Safety

The stable and uniform playing surface reduces the risk of accidents. The hardness value (Clegg hammer) can be managed as required.

Installation / use

Sowing: end-to-end installation time of 7–8 weeks.
Laying turf rolls pre-grown in nurseries: immediate use, convenience, and speed of installation even for the smallest replacements.

Can also be used for events or concerts. Any localised damage can be quickly repaired as small areas of Mixto are easy to carry out.
