December 14, 2021by juanchoxyz0

Thousands of homes, businesses, and public spaces have turned to artificial turf to provide a lush and attractive landscaping solution.

We do not always have the necessary time to keep our garden in good condition. If that happens to you, a great option is to resort to artificial or synthetic grass, a.k.a. artificial turf. This is a product that over the years has evolved and improved significantly in quality.

Gone are the years of artificial grass that itched every time we lay on it.

Nowadays, the quality of synthetic turf has increased a lot. It is such an improvement that it has become a challenge to differentiate between natural and artificial turf.

It was designed to mimic the look and feel of natural grass and consists of synthetic polypropylene or polyethylene fibers.

Furthermore, it is composed of several layers including support, cushioning and two or three layers of drainage and infill.

 

1 – Water savings
