Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock in recent years, you’ll be aware that artificial turf has come a long, long way in recent years. Nearly all of New Zealand’s major stadiums now feature updated turf technology, and some sports play exclusively on artificial surfaces.

Artificial turf was created in the USA in the ‘60s for sports such as baseball, hockey, cricket and tennis to provide an excellent surface with minimal maintenance. But now, synthetic grass is used for all kinds of landscaping, replacing decking, terraces and lawns in public areas throughout the country.

And it’s no accident that artificial turf is taking over, with so many positive features that make it a better option for all kinds of locations and uses, with incredibly new, realistic grass products available.

Traditional grass lawns and sports fields are sometimes a nightmare to keep in perfect order. It doesn’t take much rain to turn it into a muddy mess, or too little rain to produce a dry wasteland. In fact, Auckland’s recent sprinkler ban and water shortage meant a lot of dead grass throughout the region.

Synthetic turf is superior for a variety of very good reasons.

  • Superior appearance and durability
  • No bare patches or compaction
  • No weeds and other seed growth
  • No standing water and mud
  • Savings on mowing and maintenance
