Famous Fake Grass

Fake grass is in fashion, endorsed by many celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Kristen Bell and David Basche.  Preferred by A-Listers for its pet and eco-friendly qualities, it’s used in many well-known locations around the World.  Here’s a few you may have heard of…

Houston Astrodome –Texas was dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World, opened in the 1960s as the World’s first indoor baseball stadium.  Enclosed natural grass withered away and they famously had to paint it green.  Next season saw the advent of astro-turf.

Coronation Street – The UK’s most famous street is not all cobbles – the Websters, the Platts and Anna Windass have fake grass lawns.  Producers now have one less thing to worry about.

Big Brother House – The contemporary BB garden is of course fake, watching the housemates’ mowing the lawn doesn’t make for great TV.

Playboy Mansion – Lawns surrounding the legendary grotto are more attractive and easier to maintain with artificial surfaces.

Disney World – and Disneyland have synthetic grass areas throughout their resorts.

Crufts – The World renowned dog show uses canine friendly fake turf on set.

Emirates Stadium – Home of Arsenal FC after their move from Highbury in July 2006.  A total of 7 Premiership clubs have fake grass pitches including Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and 2012 Champions Manchester City.

Regiment Way Roundabout – Warner’s Farm on the A130 Chelmsford.  Ok – you’ll only know of this one if you live in Essex.  The island enjoyed localised fame when it was transformed with a new artificial surface, installed by Leisure Tech.
