The majority of the stadiums with natural grass have open domes to aid in the growth of the natural grass. NRG Stadium, Lucas Oil Stadium and University of Phoenix were constructed with retractable roofs that allow direct sunlight on the grass when the weather permits.
The most unique grass stadium is the Arizona Cardinals University of Phoenix Stadium. This grass field was constructed on top of a tray, which is set on rails allowing it to be rolled in and out of the stadium depending on what event is being hosted. By placing the grass outside of the stadium until game day, the grass field remains in the sun getting the maximum amount of sunshine and nourishment.
