The Prehistory of Artificial Grass

When one thinks of artificial grass, the image that comes to mind is that of a lush, verdant yard with plastic fibers or an artificial grass soccer field at their local park. But that hasn't always been the case. In fact, according to a simple Google Search, the phrase "artificial grass" goes all the way back to the 18thcentury, when it had a different meaning. Back then, according to a monthly journal first published in 1861 called Evans's Rural Economist, artificial grass was any grass which required an art to grow (or any grass which required a "green thumb").

According to the journal, "Botanists restrict the term 'grass' to the natural order Graminea; but common observers, and even agricultural writers, in this country, apply the term 'artificial grass' to clovers and lucern, as well also as to timothy, and such grasses proper as require cultivation, restricting the term 'natural grass' to such grasses proper as naturally take possession without artificial seeding."

This definition is very different than the meaning of today. Today, on the contrary, artificial grass refers to a synthetic grass surface which doesn't require a green thumb, art, or cultivation at all -- because synthetic grass doesn't grow!

It is unclear when the change in meaning occurred, but most likely it started with the introduction artificial grass to the general public in 1966. That year, the Astrodome became the first major field to be fitted with artificial turf. Since then artificial grass has become a mainstay in the sports, landscaping, gardening, and home remodeling industries and furthermore has taken on the meaning it has today.

Global Syn-Turf, Artificial Grass Producer, Holds Grand Opening of New Synthetic Turf Warehouse in San Diego, Califonia

Global Syn-Turf, Inc., is pleased to announce its expansion with the grand opening of a new warehouse in San Diego, CA. The warehouse, located at 12215 Kirkham Road, Poway, CA 92064, is opening on February 6, 2015, constituting the company's expansion in Southern California and in San Diego metropolitan area. Other Southern California Global Syn-Turf's warehouses are located in Los Angeles and Anaheim.

The new warehouse offers an extensive range of artificial turf and turf accessories. Hundreds of thousands square feet of turf are available for purchase, as well as installation tools, various types of infills, pet odor neutralizers, and much, much more.

"With the opening of our second warehouse in San Diego, Global Syn-Turf is excited to strengthen its presence in Southern California," said Rachel Brady, Global Syn-Turf's Sales and Marketing Manager.

"Collectively our Southern California locations will act as a fount of resources, dispensing expert knowledge and state-of-the-art artificial turf products, for the entire Southern California turf and landscaping community, with emphases placed on producing the highest-quality products, promoting eco-friendly installation methodologies, and encouraging water-wise synthetic turf applications. Indeed, opening a warehouse in this location accords with our goal of providing high-quality solutions to our local customers in San Diego and Southern California, and, on a larger scale, to the entire Southwestern region of the United States. We look forward to this new site in San Diego and expanding our presence in the coming years."

Becoming known as a trailblazer in the national water conservation movement, the city of San Diego replaced one million square feet of water-hungry grass through the San Diego County Water Authority's lawn replacement program, which terminated in early January due to exhausted funding. According to agency data, the Water Authority was receiving more than 160 requests per month during the last six months of its duration. To put it briefly, San Diego is host to the activity of many homeowners looking to save money and conserve resources, as evidenced by the explosion of demand for artificial turf and installation expertise in the city.

Ms. Brady continued, "Our business has been growing steadily, but with the rapid growth over the last 12 months-€”our revenue exploded in 2014, and our projections for 2015 are commensurate -€“ we've observed a need to expand and keep up with the demand for our artificial turf manufacture and storage services. Given San Diego's vibrant lawn and landscape community and the capacity for its ecologically minded homeowners to act as a catalyst for the rest of the country, it was logical for the company to expand its presence there. We're very excited about the opportunities open to us because of our new presence in this Southern California city."

"Our goal is to earn your confidence," concluded Rachel Brady. "So, the next time you are shopping for or researching synthetic turf or turf paraphernalia, please be sure to include our San Diego warehouse in your search. Free samples are being offered, and customers can come in and ask questions about anything and everything related to artificial grass."

In addition to its Southern California locations, Global Syn-Turf's Southwestern presence includes warehouses in Hayward and Rancho Cordova, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Las Vegas, NV; El Paso, Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio, TX; Albuquerque, NM; Salt Lake City, UT; and Aurora, CO.
