A Refresh for Green Oasis

Green Oasis is known for its multi-toned fibres and density which makes it feel like the real thing. But don’t be fooled by the ultra-soft fibres – Green Oasis is still hard-wearing and perfect for any garden or any space where there’s going to be a lot of feet (or paws) on. Following customer feedback, we have now refreshed the product. It still has a single stitch construction, and utilises a multi-toned fibre as before, but it has been improved to minimise ‘shine’ yet retain its nice soft feel. Green Oasis is available to order now.

The History of Artificial Turf in Football

Though Football League clubs have decided against using artificial pitches , they are still in use in smaller clubs across the UK, with 3G pitches used in the FA Cup. Smaller clubs have seen huge benefits from using artificial turf, allowing over 50 hours of play time per week, compared to the 5 hours that a natural turf pitch can support. This is what makes artificial grass such a great choice for clubs and communities looking for sustainable and economical pitches. Artificial grass really shines during wet weather play, with it’s epic drainage handling any downpour and resisting temperatures down to -20 degrees Celsius, making frozen pitches a thing of the past.

It’s high time we paid homage to the unsung hero of the beautiful game – check out our wonderful infographic on the history of artificial turf in football below.
