Artificial turf is a surface of synthetic fiber, made to appear like natural grass. Initially, artificial turfs were used in sport arenas that were played on grass. However, they are now extensively used for various commercial and residential application. Artificial turf were primarily introduced in the market as a substitute of natural grass, used to minimize undesired maintenance of grass and used in areas where grass is not sufficiently grown.
