The Difference Between Astro Turf and Fake Grass

There are plenty of options to choose from in regards of artificial grass in Bedfordshire. However, you may come across terms such as “fake grass” and “astro turf” and it’s important to know the differences between the two. In this article we will go into both and explain the differences, helping you decide which best suits your needs.

Explaining Artificial Grass

Artificial grass is basically a carpet of green synthetic fibres with the purpose of replacing the real grass on your lawn. Nowadays, artificial grass is the common umbrella term used for all kinds of manufactured grass and is interchangeable with other terms like artificial turf, synthetic turf and synthetic grass.

Astro Turf

Astro turs is another form of synthetic grass but hardly anyone uses this term unless they are referring to the product called Astro Turf. Astro Turf is not a general term, but it is a branded product manufactured in the USA. Often used on outdoor sports areas such as tennis courts and football fields.

Fake Grass

Fake grass is a general term used for all the manufactured grass and it was once used favourably in the market but as Astro Turf is hardly used now, the term ‘fake grass’ is also used less often now. Hence, there is no need to call it fake grass when referring to the modern artificial grass.

Reasons to buy green artificial grass

Our artificial grass comes in a variety of styles and lengths and when compared to natural grass people can hardly tell the difference. One of the main reasons people make the switch to artificial grass is because it’s very low maintenance. As our grass doesn’t grow there’s no need to water or cut it, saving both water and power. Our grass is made from high quality fibre strands, making it soft and durable.
