History Of Synthetic Turf

Today, synthetic turf is commonly used on athletic fields, but it’s changed dramatically and in many ways (e.g., surface design and maintenance) since it first originated over 50 years ago. Therefore what we have today is significantly different from what it was like when it was originally introduced. The History of Synthetic Turf There have been many changes to artificial turf as it “grew up” and matured into what we have today. These different changes are what’s commonly referred to as “generations.” First Generation In 1966 the Houston Texas Astrodome was the first major sporting venue to install artificial turf. At that time, it was a dense nylon carpet composed of short fiber that was installed over the top of a soil base that was compacted. The following year a cushion made from a closed-cell, elastomeric foam was installed between the carpet backing and the soil. Eventually, this product that was created by ChemGrass began being referred to as AstroTurf. During the 1970s and 1980s, AstroTurf was installed in several […] Continue reading

Helpful Tips For Making Short Putts

Although this can be both frustrating and embarrassing, there are some things that you can do to improve your game here and ultimately lower your score. Take Time to Aim Your aim is a major priority if you want to be successful here since your ball travels where you point your putter face at the time of impact.

How To Fix Your Most Common Yard Problems

Every weekend you hear homeowners running their lawn mowers and weed trimmers. As you drive through any neighborhood, you see sprinklers shooting streams of water as people ardently spray weeds that seemingly crop up overnight. Think of all the time these activities consume, and yet your lawn may still develop problems. To save your time and energy, consider some of the many reasons why you should install artificial turf instead. No More Problems with Water You need to give grass just the right amount of water, or it’ll develop diseases or become prone to weed and insect infestations. Some communities restrict lawn watering to conserve water, so there’s nothing you can do to keep your grass healthy. If you don’t live in one of these communities, then you must commit yourself to a watering schedule, which means dragging the hose and sprinkler out if you don’t have an in-ground sprinkler system to maintain. When you install artificial grass around your home, you don’t have to worry about any of these […] Continue reading

How To Ensure Your Artificial Putting Green Is Ready For Any Season

You can’t predict or control the weather. As a golfer, this means that you can only practice when it’s nice outside unless you have your own artificial putting green. Why Artificial Turf is a Great Choice for All of Florida’s Seasons Regardless of the season, artificial turf remains in great shape. There are a few reasons for this: It resists sun damage so it doesn’t wilt, fade, turn yellow, or become brittle. This is different from real grass which absorbs and retains heat so it either burns or makes you feel too hot. Rain water doesn’t soak into artificial turf so it doesn’t grow soggy. The moisture drains through the turf’s permeable banking so there are never any puddles. Although frost is a rarity in Florida, when it happens it wreaks havoc on natural grass either killing it or making it become discolored. This isn’t something that happens with the synthetic fibers that are used in the making of artificial turf. These fibers don’t lose either their shape or their […] Continue reading

The Key Differences Between Renting And Buying A Home

Buying a home is seen as a great way to build wealth. However, like any investment you make, certain things will affect its value (e.g., economy, maintenance, environment, interior, exterior). These factors will also affect anyone who’s renting a home since the landlord may pass the price on to them. What Buying a Home Means When you buy a home there are many things you must take into consideration. It’s important to stop and think about these things before you sign any contracts. Doing so is in your best interest because once you sign the contract it’s too late to look back. Tax Benefits There are certain tax benefits homeowners benefit from. For instance, with the home mortgage deduction, you won’t pay any expenses out-of-pocket during the loan’s early life as long as you itemize your deductions. This is different from renting because then you don’t receive any mortgage tax deductions at all. Maintaining and Repairing Your Home When you buy a home you’re responsible for any maintenance and routine […] Continue reading
