Artificial turf was first used in the sporting world in order to help reduce the costs related to constantly maintaining natural grass. Not to mention that artificial grass is able to withstand the heavy use that sports routinely require. As you can imagine, homeowners across the nation began to become savvy of the time and cost savings that artificial grass and turf can provide. If maintaining yard and lawn were easy, we wouldn’t have been in business for the last 30 years!
Artificial grass has come a long way since the Astrodome fifty-years ago. Modern “third generation turf” now offers infill that are mixtures of sand and recycled rubber while the first generation turf was short-pile fibers without infill. Long story short, the first generation turf didn’t look or feel as good as modern artificial grass today.
