Frequently, the term “artificial grass” and “artificial turf” are used interchangeably, but they actually refer to different types of synthetic grass. The term turf refers to shorter grass, such as sports turf. The correct term for the longer and fluffier grass that makes up landscapes is Artificial grass Perth.
AstroTurf was a single product when it was first invented, so we did not distinguish between the two. Honestly, it’s not a very good one. There was a green hue to AstroTurf, though it wasn’t the shade of green that naturally occurs in living grass. No one mistakenly thought it was the real thing because of its nappy texture.
My, how Times have Changed!
Artificial grass has undergone a revolutionary change thanks to scientific and technological advances. Each of our products is designed for a specific grassy purpose, offering a wide variety of options. Hence, we can distinguish between artificial grass for landscaping and artificial turf for sports. What does that mean to you?
It is incredibly tough to build an artificial sports field. During a game, players make many grinding plant-and-turn moves, running feet, cleats, and other types of mechanical movements. Additionally, it is a far safer alternative to natural grass in all conditions and enables play to continue even when the conditions are wet.
The idea of sports and turf brings to mind a large playing field and a team of players. The Bay Area is home to many “smaller” sports played on artificial turf. These games are extremely popular here. Putting greens, bocce ball courts, even tennis courts are among the specialized installations included here.
On the other hand, artificial grass is the “good looks” side to artificial turf. Although these longer, softer products aren’t less durable, they’re designed to provide maximum aesthetic appeal, too. The product is commonly referred to as “grass,” but it actually consists of three components.
There is a very important distinction between artificial grasses. A product’s quality and value are determined by the quality and workmanship used in production. Installation by a professional ensures maximum performance and longevity.
Aside from creating an elegant lawn, artificial grass also makes an excellent play area for kids, as well as a dog run at home and doggie daycares. Likewise, our artificial grass for kids is safer than real grass, just as artificial turf is safer than natural grass for players.
