What is your feeling on Artificial Turf? Do you think that it is an increasing thing you see everywhere? Or do you think that it is a fad, something that just seems to be talked about but not really implemented anywhere?
Do a quick search on Google for the words Synthetic Grass, or Artificial Turf. The first three posts are:
Loyola to add Synthetic Grass to Messmer Stadium, Synthetic Turf coming to Watsessing Park, and “A Lawn Unto Itself: Chelsea Flower Show to Allow Fake Grass for the First time in 148 year history”. They were all updated recently and all are very positive. If you continue through the pages you will see that the majority of all news links and posts are positive, and demonstrate that more and more people, organizations, schools, and sports teams are for the most part, adding and installing synthetic grass.
There are naysayers everywhere. There are also personal preferences, and a myriad of reasons why people choose the things they do. However, if the news and blogs are any indication, maybe the majority of people are right. This isn’t just a fad, and more and more people are seeing the overall benefits. Not needing to spend your life tending to grass seems to be a very popular opinion. There’s something to be said about having your free time to yourself, and always having a gorgeous lawn or stadium to look at.
