The lush green fascinates everyone around. Starting the day with the fascinating green grass is an inspiring way to live. Still, there are regions of the world where the grass does not grow very extensively. People in these regions were always anxious to enjoy the green growing around them. Those who can have the green surroundings want it to grow all through the year which is an impossible thing to happen. In both these conditions, a technology was introduced that included the artificial grass growing around. The natural grass was imitated by using a number of artificial materials. This was referred as the artificial turf. It is a grass like a layer that spreads over the piece of land anyone wants to look great. They were equally advantageous for sports activities.
How did it start?
The history of the artificial turf and the turf supplies dates back to 1960s. The first ever artificial grass was created by a renowned company named Chemstrand. They started working with the carpets that looked more like the grass. As they acquired better creative minds and technology the things started to change. They started working with better materials that gave an innovative look. They even acquired the turf supplies from other regions of the globe. Whatever they created was thoroughly checked under control laboratory conditions. The products that came to the market were safe, more weather resistant and endured even the ultraviolet rays.
It was further inspired by works done by Ford Foundations. These manufacturers did a great job by creating the playing surfaces from synthetic surfaces. They were used in the playing regions meant for the young kids so that they do not fall and get severe injuries. Moses Brown School in Rhodes Island appears to be the first ever to use the concept of the better artificial turfs. The history of using the artificial turfs in the sports arenas is traced back to 1966. This was done in Texas by the turf creators named Astrodome. This was highly appreciated by the players and the organizers both. The market witnessed a major shift after the revolutionary work done by the Astrodome. Many manufacturers entered the club after this. Tartan turf came up as the most popular among these names. As the quality control was introduced in 1970 the product became more improved. Some of the results came up as the most discouraging ones. The people started hating the turfs. The athletes and the other people in sports claimed that some of the turfs were really challenging the players. The similar concerns were raised by the eco-lovers. The 1990s came as the revolutionary times. Things started turning towards the good. Biological technology was introduced that made the turfs stand closer to the nature.
The turf today is far better than the ones that existed in the earlier days.
