What is Artificial Grass? A Brief History of Artificial Grass

Artificial grass is a surface of synthetic fibres which mimic the aesthetic and feel of natural grass. It has a range of landscaping applications which serve to eliminate certain issues that common grass sometimes experiences such as pests thriving within it or muddy damaged areas.The most common name for this artificial grass or turf is usually coined AstroTurf and this is used in sports applications. The artificial grass used in landscaping utilises the synthetic fibre whilst moving away from the recycled rubber which makes it a great product to use instead of regular grass in certain areas of your garden. The fact that recycled rubber is not utilised in these landscaping products also make them a safe and environmentally friendly alternative. Artificial grass was first installed in 1964 in the States and has been used all over the world ever since. 

Artificial Grass in Landscaping

Since the 1990s, artificial grass has been moved from its sporting origins and is now utilised in many landscaping projects. Carpet grass as it is coined moved away from the traditional origins of artificial turf to produce a wonderful product which looks lovely in many garden designs. There are a range of advantages to using artificial grass in certain areas as apposed to using regular natural grass. Artificial grass does not need to be mowed, weeded or watered for example which makes maintenance of a show garden easy and effective. There are always natural areas of your garden which will require a lot of attention and grass can take a very long time to maintain. The utilisation of artificial grass eliminates this. There is also no grass pollen emitted from artificial grass, grass pollen is particularly potent to hay fever sufferers and the removal of this can help to elevate people with heavy allergies. Artificial grass is also child and pet friendly, meaning that anybody can enjoy the addition of this new material. Fertilisation of artificial grass is not required and this reduces the use of chemicals around your garden area. This grass will also retain its colour which means that it will not go brown or fade in the sun. Due to the fact that the artificial grass will drain as well as not need the sun for photosynthesis, this artificial grass has the look and feel of natural grass without all of the upkeep!
