Info of Fake Grass

This is because our bodies, especially our joints, aren’t meant to make the complex movements that the sport requires on a regular basis. Add this to the unforgiving natural grass surface that you glide across in cleats and you have a recipe for disaster. It only takes one step for your spikes to get caught in an uneven patch of grass and a number of nasty accidents and injuries can occur, such as hyperextended joints, sprained or broken ankles, and torn ligaments. Not only are you playing against your opponent but you are also rolling the dice against potential injury.

Natural grass fields look beautiful in person and on TV, but a close-up of the field itself during gameplay shows another story entirely. The turf is subjected to 22 sets of cleats that continuously dig into it through any given play, along with repeated changes in weather, temperature and humidity. A field can be left unrecognizable after the game, looking more like a baseball diamond than a green, lush football field. An uneven, patchy surface is one of the reasons many players become injured, due to potholes or dirt clods.

When the weather is undesirable, the field is the first to suffer. With a torrential downpour of rain comes a vast collection of small puddles or, in some unfortunate cases, large ponds. Snow can also freeze the soil so that it feels like cement, and extreme heat can dry the grass to the point that it’s a little reminiscent of flaky woodchips. Ultimately, this creates an altogether unsafe environment for people to play on.

However, there is a fantastic alternative to organic grass in the form of synthetic turf. It boasts several advantages to the real thing, including the ability to choose the color and height of each blade of grass. No longer will grass look too long, too short or too brown. There is no need for any kind of watering and, because it won’t retain water, irritating puddles are a thing of the past.

Original AstroTurf products manufactured decades ago were made of a hard plastic substance that was much less forgiving than the real thing, but fake grass is now much better designed to cushion falls. Artificial turf is made of plastic and simply laid on top of a layer of sand and rubber. The underlying surface of modern synthetic turf is made of rubberized beads, so players have extra absorbance during contact. Plastic offers more friction, as well as better traction and stability for your cleats. This means that you will be able to move slightly faster and make more precise cuts when playing the game.
