Natural Grass  VS  Artificial Grass

Artificial grass was first found in USA which had been widely used for American football pitch. Known as the first generation grass, the turf was very highly density tufted with polyamide material yarn. No wonder the cost of making was very expensive.

European research led to the development of sand-filled artificial-grass pitches or second-generation pitches.  The carpet structure became less dense and the polypropylene-based artificial-grass yarns became longer.  This concept was much cheaper, but its playing features were less perfect.

In the mid-90s the soccer community began to be aware of the many advantages of artificial grass.  The disadvantages, such as burn wounds, a different response of the ball as compared to natural grass and a lack of shock-absorbing capacity forced the artificial-grass producers to come up with a new concept.

By now, third-generation artificial-grass pitches have been developed for soccer and rugby.  The density of the artificial-grass cover has become even lower and the length of the yarns even longer.  The artificial-grass yarns are made from polyethylene (to prevent burn wounds as a result of slidings).  The cover is filled with sand (for stability) and rubber (for elasticity and suitability for slidings).
 
Using artificial grass gives you these following benefits:
Unlimited use the whole year through
Minimum maintenance
Better comfort of play
Retains uniform game characteristics
Benefits fast and technical play
Sliding friendly
Less  injuries
Better and multifunctional use of the venue
Certainty of exploitation
Less pollution of soil and infrastructure
Fulfils a social function
