Everything You Need to Know About Artificial Turf

Shop Outdoor RugsArtificial turf products were initially developed by Monsanto in the mid-1960s largely based on large-scale developmental requirement for the original Astrodome sports venue program. As a matter of scientific structure, original turf products were made of mesh-captured clusters of vertical fibers layered across a propylene mat.

These clusters were then covered with a secondary layer of rubber granules as an additional preservative, and impregnated with individual blades covered in silicon. The ultimate result created the look and feel of faux grass, and subsequently became the primary field surface element during the early emergence of large-scale domes and/or semi-closed sporting venues.

Green Artifical Grass Turf Area RugBetween then and now, however, the original synthetic innovation has been adopted for hosts of other applications, most particularly those suitable for home and recreational use. Some of these applied uses include:

  • Lay down poolside surrounds
  • Boat docks
  • Accent rugs for patios
  • Accent rugs for decks
  • Use in/around playgrounds
  • Tool and work area coverage in/around garages
  • Carry along use for Trailers and RVs


Since sized artificial turf applications are largely water-resistant, and offer reasonable pricing throughout a wide-range of sizes and colors, these applications are particularly suitable when flexibility, durability and "long-life" are required. Consequently, small/mid-sized home use is on the rise, thereby creating all kinds of emergent floor coverage opportunities that numbers of manufacturers are responding to.
