A few decades ago, artificial grass took hold in sports complexes. The benefits were numerous. Maintenance-free is big for indoor and outdoor sports facilities. A huge overhead saver and it meant grounds could be open year-round.
Since then, indoor sports pitches have doubled-down on fake grass pitches -realising that today’s technology in synthetic grass is tough enough to cope with the demands of a kid’s party. No damage and easily cleaned. Like it never happened.
Sounds perfect. Reign it in with a reality check.
There’s more than one type of fake grass and not all are suited to the same purposes. Some types of artificial grass are course enough for a pitch and putt course with others having longer grass blades to mimic real grass and even touches of brown through it using brushed in sand.
The type of artificial grass you choose needs to be selected for its use and not just the look. Some are harder wearing and best suited to high foot traffic areas where other less course synthetic materials would break down and tear faster.
Scot Turf stock and supply a range of artificial grass types suitable for whatever your intended use is.
No matter your attraction to artificial grass, Scot Turf can advise on the best type of synthetic material for the purpose you need it for.
All types are indistinguishable from real grass.
High quality, highest-rated hygiene option you’ll get from grass as it’s easily brushed and can even be hosed clean. Water still drains, the materials are hard-wearing so can withstand a huge trampoline and a play area without it affecting the grass quality.

Something else to know…
Dogs, cats, or for rabbit runs, the RealTurf’s artificial grass is the only one tested and designed for safe use with people and animals.
For people with pets, or pet facilities such as kennels with outdoor areas, this is the best option for people and pets to enjoy a hygienical friendly, odourless outdoor area that’s free from any bacteria and super easy to clean up too.
With Scot Turf, nothing’s generic. We stock a range of types and styles of artificial grass. Each one is designed to suit various environments. Distinct looks can be achieved so whatever you have in mind, we’ll have a style and synthetic material to match.
That said, some are best-suited to different purposes such as children’s play areas which in public spaces (commercial projects) must be fireproof. Around hot-tubs, ideally, you’d want good drainage and on sports grounds, hard wearing with superior bounce would be more suited. Or for general purpose in the garden, it might just be that you like one look better than others.
