Since the late 1990s, the use of artificial turf has moved rapidly beyond sports fields to residential and commercial landscaping. This trend has been driven primarily by the advanced quality of artificial turf, lower maintenance costs and increased concern for the environment with the emphasis on conserving water.

Today, artificial turf is used in many indoor and outdoor residential and public gardens, playground areas, and airports. It is sought after for its natural look, aesthetic appeal and low maintenance care. Artificial turf is particularly suitable when the environment is hostile and arid.
