With the increasing popularity of sports activities in India, most of the people prefer installing artificial grass rather than having real grass. Synthetic grass is easy to maintain and convenient. Sports arenas, parks, playgrounds, gardens, etc. are some of the places where artificial grass is used. As grass in such areas is exposed to sunlight all the time, you would need durable and sturdy material for the grass. Sudden variation in temperature does not have any effects on synthetic grass. It maximizes realism, durability and usability
Water conservation is one of the major benefits of using artificial grass. Such areas do not require watering, except for the occasional wash down. Hence, you would be able to conserve water by using synthetic grass. It also helps to reduce noise and air pollution. You can get the same look and feel by installing synthetic grass.

You would be able to save hours every week because you would not need to mow, trim or water it. Without spending money and time, you would be able to maintain such grass optimally.
Mostly, sports grounds and golf grass courses are subjected to wear and tear. Hence, it makes more sense to install synthetic grass.
