Artificial grass


The lawns with artificial grass are a valid alternative for those who love greenery but do not have the time or the opportunity to cultivate it.

THE HISTORY OF ARTIFICIAL GRASS


Artificial grass or even known as synthetic grass has seen its first use around the sixties, it was designed by a group of researchers from North Carolina to make an artificial lawn for the covered stadium of Texas, the purpose was to lower the costs of maintaining a covered natural lawn, creating something similar but at reduced prices.
In the early seventies the use of artificial grass began to spread like wildfire, to the point of covering most of the fields both covered and uncovered in baseball and American football in the United States and Canada.
Over the years the artificial grass began to have a bad reputation, was in fact used in some football fields, but with bad results, it was in fact much more difficult than natural grass and it was understood that the falls were much more dangerous and caused more damage.
With the new technologies and the new products placed on the market, the current artificial grass is similar to the natural, soft and soft, and the mechanization of large industries has reduced production costs, today in fact it is much cheaper to install a lawn with artificial grass instead of real grass.

CHARACTERISTICS AND TYPES OF ARTIFICIAL GRASS



The fibers that create the artificial grass are made of polypropylene, a material that has a strong resistance to all atmospheric agents, in fact under the hot summer sun it does not fade while maintaining the bright green. It is very important to know how to choose the type of artificial grass that is most suited to the type of soil, soil or floor that it will host. The most common artificial grass is called low-stretch mats and very similar to carpets, it has extremely simple finishes, and is a very practical solution, even if aesthetically it does not reach the levels of artificial grass in professional fields but are very similar to natural grass. Another type of artificial grass is the twisted fiber mat that is very similar to a soft and natural turf, the artificial grass is worked in such a way as to look very similar to small blades of grass, which however do not deform with the trampling, in fact once stepped on they return to their initial position.
On the market there are therefore a multiplicity of types of artificial grass, from the simplest and the professional ones. The thickness of the artificial grass varies with the needs that you want to satisfy.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ARTIFICIAL GRASS AND NATURAL GRASS



One of the main differences between artificial grass and natural grass is that the former can be used with much more intensity, in fact it does not immediately spoil like that nature, if we take for example a football field with natural grass, it can be used on average two hundred and fifty hours a year, an artificial grass field can be used seven days a week without any problem. Furthermore artificial grass requires little maintenance, it is therefore a long-term investment, in fact there is no problem to wait for the vegetative growth of the grass or the state of the grass during thunderstorms. Synthetic grass has the same characteristics as real grass.

THE MOST COMMON USES AND THE COSTS OF THE ARTIFICIAL GRASS


Artificial grass as well as being used in sports to cover the playing fields and often also used as an ornamental element for homes and public buildings.
For domestic use it is often used on pools for both decorative and utility purposes, in fact it allows you to walk barefoot and lie down, in addition to the classic ornaments such as covering the entrance to the house or to cover the flower beds. It can be placed very easily on balconies or to cover terraces and sheaths beyond the classic use as a turf for the garden. In commercial establishments it is often used as an ornament for the foreign environments of bars and restaurants, in fact it is very characteristic the environment furnished on a mantle of grass.
The use of artificial grass has been widespread thanks to the low costs and the simplicity of installation, in fact often the laying of artificial grass is carried out directly by the purchaser, it is sufficient to stretch the rolls to obtain in a few moments a comfortable and easy to maintain environment. The costs of artificial turf vary according to the type of grass, the most common has a cost of about 6.50 euros per square meter, the most particular ones for example with rain drainage can reach a maximum price of 20 , 50 per square meter, nothing to do with the costs of planting and maintaining a real lawn.
