A NEW GENERATION OF ARTIFICIAL GRASS GROWING Many people are looking for alternatives to natural grass in order to conserve water. Natural grass has a lot of added costs such as upkeep, water restrictions and difficulties in growing that make people to start looking for artificial grass as an alternative. The synthetic grass is therefore substituting the natural grass in lawns and sports area as it is very low maintenance. This synthetic grass has come a long way from the plastic looking one of the 1970’s and has a lot of names such as soft fall, artificial grass and fake grass among others. The syntetic grass of today, looks and feels the same way as the natural grass. It requires a closer examination to tell the difference between the real grass and artificial grass despite the fact that they do not exactly look the same. Traditionally the main type of outdoor artificial has been a short pile, carpet-like product that requires a sand infill to make it durable. Which is oftenly seen in playgrounds and tennis courts. Whilst the short pile grass remains popular for its durability and value for money, the new long pile grass is in demand for its grass like characteristics and close resemblance to real lawn. It can be up to 40mm (almost 2 inches) in height and is made from polyethylene fibres which are woven into a rubber backing, to produce a very strong and durable product.

However, in order to provide maximum comfort it may be good to make sure that the artificial grass is installed on top of a soft ball base to provide the surfacing around effect.

Most of owners lack the resources and time required to grow a natural lawn at their homes and also shifting to using the synthetic lawns provided. In a garden setting, synthetic lawn can be perforated to let rain through and to reduce the impact on nearby trees and plants. The other major advantage is that it can be taken up and installed in another region. Artificial grass can be installed directly over a number of bases depending on application. Bases may be wepour, dirt, concrete or rubber for installing the application. It can be fixed in place by nailing it to a surrounding timber border, or by pegging it to the ground. Often the weight of sand and rubber infill may be enough to hold it securely in place.
