When Turf Was First Groovy

When space-age thinking of the 1960’s introduced synthetic turf as a novel grass alternative for sports and indoor fields, it didn’t rest on its laurels. Since its inception, artificial turf has been a wild west of innovation, and it shows in examples today. From infill to fiber, synthetic turf has come a long way in proving itself as a superior field option for many sports.

Today It’s Still On Top

Perhaps the biggest advantage of modern turf is the infill. Early artificial turf didn’t have any and as a result was hard, thick and unforgiving to the skin. Eventually, sand and rubber infill were introduced, but Courts & Greens instead uses non-toxic and antimicrobial infill to suit any application, be it pet or impact sport.

Advances in material and textile manufacturing has improved turf resiliency and appearance too. Tough UV resistant fibers are snugly woven into a drainable mesh for high traffic use and colorfastness. Modern synthetic turf looks almost identical to natural grass, and the only thing that gives it away is the fact you no longer mow and water your yard anymore.
