The difference between artificial turf and natural turf

We can often see artificial turf on football fields, school playgrounds, and indoor and outdoor landscape gardens. So do you know the difference between artificial turf and natural turf? Let’s focus on the difference between the two.


  Weather resistance: The use of natural lawns is easily restricted by seasons and weather. Natural lawns cannot survive in cold winter or adverse weather. Artificial turf can adapt to various weather and climate changes. Whether in cold winter or hot summer, artificial turf fields can be used normally. They are less affected by rain and snow and can be used 24 hours a day.

  Durability: Sports venues paved with natural turf are usually put into use after 3-4 months of maintenance after the lawn is planted. The service life is generally between 2-3 years, and it can be extended to 5 years if the maintenance is intensive. In addition, natural grass fibers are relatively fragile and can easily cause damage to the turf after being subjected to external pressure or friction, and recovery is slow in the short term. Not only is the paving cycle short, but the service life of the site is also longer than that of natural turf, usually 5-10 years. Even if the artificial turf site is damaged, it can be repaired in time, will not affect the normal use of the venue.

  Economical and practical: The cost of planting and maintaining natural turf is very high. Some professional football fields that use natural turf have high annual lawn maintenance costs. The use of artificial turf can greatly reduce subsequent management and maintenance costs. Maintenance is simple, no planting, construction or watering is required, and manual maintenance is also more labor-saving.


  Safety performance: Natural turf grows naturally, and the friction coefficient and sliding properties cannot be controlled when moving on the lawn. However, during the production of artificial turf, artificial grass threads can be controlled through scientific proportions and special production processes. The density and softness make it more suitable for elasticity, better shock absorption and cushioning when used, which can ensure that people are less likely to be injured during exercise and less likely to cause fires.

  It is not difficult to see that now people have improved the quality of artificial turf to be the same as natural turf, and even surpass natural turf in some aspects. From the appearance point of view, artificial turf will be closer and closer to natural grass, and its integrity and uniformity will be better than natural grass. However, the difference in ecological benefits is inevitable. The ecological functions of natural turf to regulate microclimate and transform the environment cannot be replaced by artificial turf. However, with the development of artificial turf technology in the future, we can believe that artificial turf and natural turf will continue to play their respective advantages, learn from each other’s strengths and complement each other.
