Artificial Grass Liverpool UK: Its Origins Explained

Artificial grass Liverpool UK and worldwide is becoming a very popular alternative to the hassle of maintaining a lawn composed of real grass. In this article, you'll find a basic explanation for what artificial grass is and its history. Artificial grass is, as the name suggests, made from synthetic (man-made) fibres. These fibres have been crafted to resemble real blades of grass as closely as possible. It has been used for many years in place of real grass on sporting fields and on the exteriors of domestic properties. It is often referred to as 'artificial turf' which may have something to do with its original name – AstroTurf.

This name is derived from the place where it was originally installed: the Astrodome in Houston, Texas, home to the Houston Astros baseball team. This innovative solution was first used around 1966 at the Astrodome after groundskeepers found that the natural grass at this outdoor stadium had died just before the season began. Artificial turf was installed as a successful alternative. Since then, the quality and reliability of UK artificial lawns Liverpool and beyond has continued to rise. Many other sporting venues have followed suit. Many sporting arenas now feature artificial grass Liverpool and further afield. Just last year, artificial grass was combined with real grass to create the new surface at Liverpool Football Club’s ground, at Anfield.
