So you’ve decided that, yes, an artificial lawn is the way to go. All the benefits associated with artificial grass fit your needs perfectly in regards to sustainability, maintenance, and costs. But what about aesthetics? How realistic does artificial grass actually look?
Let me tell you, it’s come a long way since your Grandma’s artificial turf!
Artificial Grass Has Come A Long Way
Rest assured, nowadays artificial grass is as beautiful and natural looking as real grass. It’s changed quite a bit since its first introduction in 1966.
The first type of artificial grass introduced was called AstroTurf, which was first installed in the newly constructed Astrodome in Houston, Texas. Here it gained a significant amount of media attention since it was installed in an attempt to replace the natural grass field that could not be adequately maintained in an indoor stadium, due to lack of sunlight.
As a result, the first artificial grass surface was born, which was basically a green carpet constructed from nylon fibers. From this point on, artificial turf became extremely popular. It was introduced to multiple Major League Baseball stadiums across the country, along with other sports fields to commercial and residential landscaping.
In the late 70’s a new generation of artificial turf was introduced, which utilized polypropylene, a different type of synthetic fabric used in place of the nylon fibers. This type of material was much softer, more comfortable, and was introduced to try to reduce the risk of injury for athletes on artificial grass sports fields.
