You could say Jason Focht's love for grass is rooted in his love for golf. He started playing the game in childhood, then went on to become captain of the golf team at Fluvanna County High School. After graduation, he pursued a double major in horticulture and turfgrass management at Virginia Tech. There, his two loves combined: he spent his summers working at high-end golf courses, and semesters honing his expertise at the university's Turfgrass Research Center. Today, Focht puts his experience to use as the head of Paradise Landscaping. He and his team focus on turfgrass, landscape planning, and ousting pests from greenery as they tend to lawns and gardens around Botetourt County.
Tiger Paintball's airball field was born from a custom design that its owners toiled to perfect. Unwilling to settle on offering a standard airball experience, Tiger’s team came together to sew the turf’s bonded surfaces together, carefully construct a rain-drainage system, and map out obstacles in a ways that eliminates visibility issues. With all that planning in place, now players are free to race across the inflatable-barricade-littered blue, red, yellow, and purple surfaces to blast at their opponents. The airball field hosts refereed bouts both by appointment and during weekend open play, and a separate shooting range accommodates guests looking to improve their aim before games. The pro shop sells gear, including markers, goggles, and high-pressure air systems, from trusted manufacturers such as Tippmann, Planet Eclipse, and Ninja Paintball, which makes all its equipment from recycled nunchucks.
