There has been an increasing awareness of conserving water and people have been looking for alternatives  to natural grass. Natural grass has a lot of added costs such as upkeep, water restrictions and difficulties in growing that make people to start looking for artificial grass as an alternative. It is very easy to maintain the artificial grass and that is why it is gaining increasing demand in the market.

Artificial Grass Tulsa, astroturf, soft fall and fake grass are some of the different games given to synthetic grass which has evolved from the plastic looking one of the 1970’s.  The syntetic grass of today, looks and feels the same way as the natural grass.  It may not look exactly as the natural grass but it is very difficult to distinguish between the fake one and real on unless closely examining it.

The main type of outdoor Artificial Grass in Tulsa has been the carpet like that requires sand infill in order to make it durable. The kind of artificial grass is seen in kindergarten play grounds and tennis courts.  However, despite the short pile grass still being in demand, there has emerged a new kind of artificial grass that has characteristics resembling that of  lawn grass that s gaining more demand.  It can be up to 40mm (almost 2 inches) in height and is made from polyethylene fibres which are woven into a rubber backing, to produce a very strong and durable product.

FIFA has authorized an increasing number of synthetic grass to be used when surfacing fields. Since the long pile grasses are softer they allow athletes to slide without getting “carpet burns”, and yet still provide the required traction underfoot.  Often the new synthetic grasses have a thin layer of rubber granules or sand trapped within the base of the fibres to provide a cushioning effect.  However, in  order to provide maximum comfort it may be good to make sure that the artificial grass is installed on top of a soft ball base to provide the surfacing around effect.

Homeowners of today are also shifting gears and installing synthetic grass in their homes because they lack the time and resources required to grow a natural lawn. In a garden setting, synthetic lawn can be perforated to let rain through and to reduce the impact on nearby trees and plants.  It also has the advantage of being able to taken up and re-installed in a different area.

Artificial grass can be installed directly over a number of bases depending on application.  Bases may be wepour, dirt, concrete or rubber for installing the application.  It is possible to either peg it or nail it on timber when installing it. it is possible for the weight of rubber and sand fill to hold the soft fall grass in shape.
