Frequently Asked questions
Artificial grass was originally introduced in the 1960s as ‘Astro Turf’ and was made of nylon fiber filled-in carpets. It was developed specifically for playing fields. In the mid 1990s, a new generation of synthetic turf was developed and made of polypropylene yarn which helped to improve the look and feel of the turf. Infill material was also introduced to secure and stabilize the turf while increasing the safety and durability. In the late 1990s, a third generation of synthetic turf was introduced and is the turf currently being used in the marketplace today. It is made of polyethylene yarn and showcases more natural colors and blade shapes.
