AstroTurf was first installed in the Houston Astrodome back in 1966. Since then, artificial turf has been used in nearly every sport played on grass from the recreational leagues all the way to the pros.
Used for baseball, football, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, golf, or any other sport, artificial grass for sports provides a perfect surface for fielding Sunday hops, cutting away from oncoming linebackers, or doing whatever else you need to score.
Artificial turf, unlike playground mulch, is safe and non-abrasive. It saves you from the worry of your kids slipping or tripping around the play area as it gives your playground an even, leveled surface. With the padded underlayment, there’s effective shock absorption that cushions rough landings. Children can play all day long, and you can be sure they’re injury-proof. If your looking for a safer alternative to mulch call us and we will get your playground artificial turf installed as soon as possible.
Types of Artificial Grass
Based on the chemical nature of the yarn, there are three types of artificial grass. Call us to talk more about which one is right for your playground surface.
Nylon is mostly used in combination with polyethylene grass for a highly durable yard. It’s typically installed for athletic fields or golf greens. It’s perfect when you want realistic-looking fake grass.

Propylene artificial grass is the best artificial turf for you if your priority is aesthetic beauty and the most affordable artificial playground grass.

AstroTurf Vs Artificial Grass
Let us take you way back to a time when gas was cheap and cars were big. It was 1960 when the father of modern-day artificial grass, Dan Chaney, first moved to Raleigh North Carolina and lead his research and development team to create the first artificial turf.
It was more than the birth of the welcome mat. This invention signified the beginning of indoor baseball, football, and all other sports. If you’re like us, we’re wondering why this man doesn’t have his own museum. Surely, there’s a statue somewhere.
People often use the term “astroturf” to describe artificial grass, but this is an actual brand of artificial turf that was first in baseball at the Houston Astrodome. Because of the roof, they struggled to keep the grass green during the season, so artificial grass was a good call.
From there, other artificial grass systems have evolved to what we have now, and what we have now looks amazing. Let us show you how green the grass really is on our side of things.
7 Things to Consider When Choosing Artificial Grass
If you have animals as pets or kids who love to jump around the play area, you’d want to get a porous turf for animal waste and also a durable one to stand against the heavy foot traffic.
Again, consider the quality of artificial turf yarn before purchasing it. Gauge the pros and cons of nylon, polypropylene, and polyethylene artificial turf, and then pick the best one according to your priorities.
3. Length of grass blades
The length of the grass blades extends from above the backing to the tip. The best choice for a lush-looking lawn is tall grass blades. But they bend easily, and over time, the entire turf becomes flat. For furniture, go for shorter grass blades as they offer more durability.
4. Density and Weight
Dense turfs are aesthetic and durable. They are expensive but stay healthy for a long time. Weight only matters for locations like the balcony or rooftops as there’s a limit to the turf load they can withstand.
5. Infill and Backing
Common infill materials include rubber crumbs and sand. Pick any according to your need and budget. The backing can be polyurethane, which doesn’t contract, or latex which can expand by 5-10 mm.
If you want to go for a natural look, pick turfs that are not perfect. Imperfect turf has different shades of green including olive green, lime green, and darker green
Time is the deciding factor here. Pick a low-maintenance artificial turf if you have a busy schedule and cannot take care of your lawn.
Artificial Grass and Turf Installation
Besides selling quality artificial grass, we’re experts at installing artificial turf as well. From hitting facilities to putting greens and your baseball or football fields, we can install your turf anywhere you want. For indoor artificial grass installations, the turf will be installed directly onto the concrete foundations very similar to how carpet or wood flooring is installed.
Outdoor artificial grass installations will require a bit more planning and work. The area must be cleared of all weeds and the top layer of soil has to be removed. Once that is complete drainage must be planned and placed and a sub-layer of gravel, decomposed granite, crushed rock, or stone will be poured over the planned area. Then sharp sand is added as well and then the area is watered and compacted to ensure the surface is flat and ready for the grass to be attached. Once the artificial turf is rolled out and in position, the grass will be taped down with seam tape, stitched together, and nailed down with landscaping anchor pins.
