Sport turfs and Synthetic Grass to Act as Roadblock
The utilization of artificial turfs has moved rapidly beyond sports fields to commercial and residential landscaping. Use of synthetic grass and sports turfs is increasing as these require lower maintenance. Apart from that, they are also environment-friendly as they require less water. Synthetic grass and sports turfs are employed in indoor as well as outdoor residential and public gardens, play areas as well as airports as they add to the aesthetic appeal and give a natural look to the space where they are used and also have low maintenance cost. Hereafter, they are being preferred by end users over natural grass. Nevertheless, this, in turn, would lead to a decline in the growth of the gardening tools market.
