From his ideology that there is more possible with good collaboration, the company has established a well-known name that is recognized for its innovative vision, sustainable commitment and professionalism of work in the turf industry in Europe.

Our experience in the construction and maintenance of (hybrid-) fields and fraise mowing goes back as more than twelve years. Therefore, none turf field project has surprises for us, that we cannot manage!

Our mission statement

Innovative vision

As corporate citizens, we have the responsibility and ability to care for our world and deliver it sustainably to future generations. That is a challenge that Turf Talents actively strives  to achieve.

This goal is met by making informed choices in the advice we provide, by encouraging the use of sustainable innovations and by taking the lead in applying them. We can achieve this by making  fields better in a sustainable way with the use of good quality products even if sometimes this means going against the stream.

At Turf Talents we are aware that this can lead to critical questions. We are therefore committed to communicating our knowledge, advice and insights as comprehensively and carefully as possible to anyone who is involved.

Sustainably Involved and Professional

For every project and for every field we have the complete desire to achieve the best results within the budget. We always work with a vision for the short and long term and with an eye for people and the environment.

We work with each of the stakeholders on an equal basis to achieve the desired goal. We are critical where necessary, address parties about their responsibilities and are open to improvements.

We also apply the same professionalism for ourselves. This means that we stand by the expertise of the advice we give, that we are open and honest about our options and ask for specialist support where this contributes to the execution and the result of an assignment. We do not work with a standard program. In our opinion every field is different and requires a different maintenance program.

Why you should work with Turf Talents

For independent advice

Turf Talents works independently and is not bound to suppliers and/or contractors!

Why? The industry is changing rapidly, and we believe that we should not be tied to a specific brand or product in order to provide optimum advice. Our interest lies first with the field. We assist owners and clients with ensuring that the field generates the profits using the best solutions to meet the challenges.

For choosing and maintening hybrid fields the right way

Hybrid fields offer higher playability and better stability and are an upcoming market.

Grounds managers and teams need to trust an independent expert with years of experience in installing and maintaining these fields.

Every hybrid system is different and has its own benefits and disadvantages. Also every field or club has its own requirements when they wish to install a hybrid field. Turf Talents has 12 years experience in the maintenance of hybrid fields and has recently completed a two-year study into all different systems.

These fields have specific maintenance needs and knowledge required to execute. At Turf Talents we have the exact knowledge and practical expertise. We are the only turf consultant company with this expertise and experience!

For the best and safest fields within the lines of each budget

Turf Talents has always been innovative and the first to introduce many state-of-the-art techniques and devices. Not to innovate on itself. But in order to create better fields with the use of good quality products. This will allow our clients to get the best and safest fields in a responsible, sustainable way and even reduce the annual cost.
