How is Artificial Grass made?
We have all been surprised when told that a manicured lawn that we have been admiring, turns out to be artificial turf grass. How can it be?, we ask. After all, it looks so real. So then we inspect it very closely and discover that it is indeed, not something that we are going to spend any time pushing the lawn mower over on weekends. So how do they make it look so real?
It turns out that artificial turf grass is made by carpet manufacturers, in very much the same way as they make regular tufted carpeting. Let’s take a look and see how it all comes together.
What makes Artificial Grass Green?
I am a very big fan of artificial grass because it eliminates lawn maintenance and therefore reduces noise and air pollution and the use pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides and saves water etc.
However, I think that the crumb rubber filler material is an ecological disaster because much of it will somehow end up being washed down drains and sewers, into our rivers and oceans, be eaten by fish and end up on our dinner plates and finally our bodies.
However, there are natural substitutes such as small pieces of cork, coconut shell granules, wall nut shell grindings, ground rice, tiny shells, and pea size pieces of quartz or volcanic rock.

Tips and Tricks for Artificial Grass.
Don’t attempt to patch damaged areas.
If a patch of synthetic grass becomes damaged, contact the installer and get them to replace the problem piece. Do not attempt a DIY patch with the aid any type of glue that can be bought in a regular hardware store, or nails, bonding agents or screws. It simply won’t work, and you will cause more damage and compromise your warranty.
Acclimate the material before installation.
Allow the sun to soften the artificial backing by laying it out for a 1-2 hours before installation. This will make the installation project much easier.
Pull tight before pinning.
