Past, Present-day, and Future of Artificial Grass

In the 1950’s, the industry for artificial grass started as a way to improve youth’s physical fitness. Various dedicated companies started testing artificial grass from around 1962 to 1966. They tested it for water drainage, water resistance, flammability, and durability levels including foot traffic as well.

History

History states that during 1965, because of the unlikely weather condition that causes natural turf to be unplayable, Houston’s Astrodome dealt with a predicament and desperately needed a solution. They decided to consult a synthetic grass company about faux grass.

It was a baseball game in 1966 that used “Chemgrass”, which was later renamed to “Astroturf”. This was the 1st baseball season that the Houston Astros played on a field with artificial lawn. The artificial grass was curled tightly with nylon fibers combined with a foam backing.

Artificial grass’ popularity continued to grow in the 70’s. A lot of arenas in Canada and the United States started to adopt this as well. At this time, the fake grass followed the carpet model “shag” type. They used polypropylene materials which are so soft for longer yarns. This was considered a giant leap from the 1st generation of turf.

Present-day

Around the mid 90’s, the 3rd generation came to life and used an even softer material of polyethylene. This application still continues up to date. Synthetic grass is now made with different colors and different lengths of fibers. Combining these together created an ideal product that was almost similar to real grass. It looked so alike that most couldn’t tell whether it was fake or real unless you tell them. Artificial lawns today are the 3rd generation which performs better, looks natural, and feels real.
