Going Artificial / Synthetic Grass Has Never Been Trendier
Artificial turf was introduced in the 1960s as an alternative to live lawns. It has all the benefits of grass without all the tiresome maintenance work. However, even though it has been in the market for decades, it never really grew to popularity—until now. Back then, it looked and felt all too fake, which didn’t entice consumers.
Over time, technology has made it possible to have these turfs look and feel like real grass. Their qualities are so replicative that they can fool a lot of people. Add to the fact that It maintains that pristine look, year in and year out.
