The playing experience on artificial grass is very hard to distinguish from that offered by a natural-grass playing field. However, when it comes to sport, synthetic grass offers a number of very distinct advantages. It is significantly more resilient to the heavy traffic and large number of impacts that it will suffer when being used as a sports surface.

It is also more suitable for all-weather play. Where natural grass can become muddy in even fairly light rain if it is prolonged, and will remain muddy for some time after heavy rain stops, artificial grass playing fields have very little trouble with mud. They are low-maintenance - a very big advantage for sports fields that otherwise require not only mowing but regular attention for worn and damaged patches. Artificial grass can even offer a realistic grass playing field indoors.

Art and Architecture

In the worlds of both art and architecture, there are times when it will be desirable or even necessary to recreate outdoor spaces indoors. This is not entirely uncommon with art installations and is much more common with architectural displays, scale models of proposed projects and demonstrations of ideas and concepts.

Real grass can and frequently has been used, but it does not live for long indoors, so it gives any display a limited shelf life unless the grass portion is regularly renewed. The reason natural grass may still be used is one of simple realism, but good artificial grasses are very hard to tell apart from their natural counterparts without close, detailed inspection.
