The terms artificial grass and AstroTurf are often used interchangeably, especially for artificial grass used in sports applications. However, AstroTurf is one among many names, including synthetic grass, artificial turf, and fake grass, that are used to refer to the same thing: artificial grass.
What Is Artificial Grass?
Artificial grass is a blanket term that is used to describe any synthetic or manmade grass products. Artificial grass is a man-made alternative to natural grass and comes in many different types, looks, and quality levels.
Since its invention, artificial grass has been significantly improved to provide the same look and feel as natural grass with none of the associated maintenance required, such as mowing, weeding, edging, and watering.
Enduroturf provides high-quality, Australian-made artificial grass Brisbane and Australia wide for both residential and commercial purposes.

What Is AstroTurf?
Often used to refer to any type of artificial grass, particularly in sports facilities, AstroTurf is actually the brand name of one of the first producers of artificial grass in the 1960s. As often happens with popular brands, the term ‘AstroTurf’ began to be used to refer to any type of artificial grass. Similar to how many Australians will refer to any portable cooler as an esky when Esky was originally just a popular Australian brand of portable coolers.
About The AstroTurf Brand
Originally called ChemGrass, AstroTurf was invented in the 1960s by an American subsidiary. The first major installation of ChemGrass was at the Houston Astrodome sporting venue. Making the most of the publicity from use in the Astrodome, ChemGrass was renamed AstroTurf.
As one of the first artificial grass products, the term AstroTurf began to be used to refer to any brand of artificial grass. However, the American brand has little presence in Australia, and though the term has made it across the pacific ocean, AstroTurf products are far less common than other brands of artificial grasses in Australia.

Artificial grass is a great alternative to natural grass in residential applications, and Enduroturf’s synthetic grass is 100% lead-free and child and pet friendly for your peace of mind. There are many applications for artificial grass around residential properties, from a cost-effective, hard-wearing, and low maintenance lawn alternative to creating your own backyard putting green or functional outdoor entertaining area.
Enduroturf offer 13 different types of artificial grass products suitable for home applications, including natural-look synthetic grass, pet premium grass, and even coloured turf. Choosing the right type of artificial grass for your home will depend on where and how the grass will be used, as well as your own personal preferences.
For example, if you’re looking to install artificial grass for use in a high traffic area such as a family lawn or play area, then a dense pile may be the best choice to ensure that your lawn will maintain its beautiful, pristine look through years of use. Conversely, for areas with low foot traffic where artificial grass may be used to increase the kerb appeal and aesthetics of your home, a less dense pile may be the more cost-effective choice.
