2.What's the history of artificial grass?
Artificial grassfirst gained publicattention in the 1960s, when it was used in the newly constructed Astrodome.The first generation turf systems(i.e., short-pile fibers without infill) of the 1960s havebeen largely replaced by the second generation and third generation turf systems. Second generation synthetic turf systems featured sand infills, and third generation systems, which are most widely used today, offer infills that are mixtures of sand and recycled rubber. The third generationis the safest, most resistant artificial grass today and with characteristics closer to natural grass.

Artificial grass requires a fair investment, but, in the long term the costs per hour of play on artificial turf are considerabally lower than of natural grass.
5. Why are there different pile heights?
Pile is the term for the upright blades on synthetic turf. Artificial grass can be cut at different heights (e.g.20-30- 40 mm). As standard, 20 mm of free pile height (the part of the synthetic grass fiber that extends above the infill) is calculated. The pile height of artificial grass is usually based on the sub-base. For example, If you are building on stone, you will probably need a longer pile. Each project is evaluated with a specialist.
