What could be better than a neatly trimmed lawn? Only a neatly laid roll of artificial grass, especially where there is a tennis court, a field for volleyball, football and other dynamic games.
Invented grass was in 1965 specifically for the world's first indoor stadium Astrodrome, and in 1966 for the first time on an artificial grass held a baseball game. In the first game, the synthetic coating showed itself perfectly. Due to its durability and long operating time, artificial grass quickly became widely used all over the world.
Synthetic grass looks great, water resistant, almost does not burn, resistant to frost and is not afraid of temperature changes. This grass is used not only on indoor sports facilities, but also on open spaces.
The technology of production of artificial grass is similar to the technology of carpet production . Fiber-mimicking fibers are made from polypropylene in combination with polyethylene, which are weaved into a high-strength latex base. This coating perfectly absorbs water vapor from the air, that is, it has excellent hygroscopicity and is distinguished by its wear resistance. Artificial grass differs in height and density, which allows it to be used in different sports.
The most common is artificial grass made of polypropylene or polyethylene or a mixture of them - block copolymer. Polypropylene fibers are stronger and stiffer, which can lead to skin burns when falling on the coating, and polyethylene fibers are soft and slippery, which do not cause abrasions or burns if they fall. In order to improve the quality of the coating and avoid injuries, artificial grass is usually produced using a block polymer.
Her place artificial grass firmly occupied and in landscape design. Today, designers widely use this coating.
Artificial grass is a decorative material and a decorative multifunctional coating. Such grass does not require haircuts or watering, it will be enough to wash it occasionally with water with a special solution. The pile of grass keeps its shape for a long time, and the saturated green color will remain green in any weather, at any time of the year.
Applying synthetic grass in landscape design, you can get an excellent effect - to hide the unattractiveness of some parts of the lawn and decorate those areas on which can not grow natural grass. An artificial option can decorate any, even the darkest corner of the garden. Cover from artificial grass in landscape design is better than any other artificial coating imitates "living" grass, and looks so realistic that it is difficult to distinguish it from natural grass.
Artificial grass can be used both indoors and outdoors as a lawn in the garden, on the playground. Pile it for a long time retains its shape and elasticity, he is not afraid of either high physical load, no temperature changes, no precipitation.
