Artificial Turf Construction UK
Artificial Grass is all the rage throughout the UK whether it be a synthetic turf sports pitch for a professional football club or a domestic client wanting an artificial lawn for their garden. Artificial grass has many many positives, one being specifically for sports pitches because it gives the client an all weather pitch they can play on that gives the same playing characteristics as natural grass. On the other hand artificial lawns are very beneficial because keeps maintenance costs down as the grass isn’t needed to be cut and is great for animals and as a play area surface. The artificial grass gets used on playgrounds, daycare centres, nurseries, schools, parks, college play areas, universities and leisure centres.
We have carried out installations of artificial grass, playground surfaces, sports surfacing, MUGA, ball court, polymeric surface, synthetic turf, 3g grass, all weather pitch and third generation synthetic grass and we are able to carry out these projects across the country!
History of Artificial Grass
Artificial turf was first installed in 1964 on a prep school recreation area in Rhode Island. The material came to public prominence in 1966, when AstroTurf was installed in the Astrodome in Houston, Texas. The state-of-the-art indoor stadium had attempted to use natural grass during its initial season in 1965, but this failed miserably and the field conditions were grossly inadequate during the second half of the season, with the dead grass painted green. Due to a limited supply of the new artificial grass, only the infield was installed before the Houston Astros’ home opener in April 1966, the outfield was installed in early summer during an extended Astros road trip and first used after the All-Star Break in July.
The use of AstroTurf and similar surfaces became widespread in the U.S. and Canada in the early 1970s, installed in both indoor and outdoor stadiums used for baseball and football. More than 11,000 artificial turf playing fields have been installed nationally. More than 1,200 were installed in the U.S. in 2013 alone, according to the industry group the Synthetic Turf Council.
