Originally, artificial grass surfaces where manufactured purely for commercial use on sports fields, pitches and sports stadium, they had a short pile and they were very abrasive, often causing injuries to players similar to that of carpet burn.
These original surfaces required an infill; usually sand, the modern day equivalent now commonly uses recycled rubber. These surfaces are often incorrectly referred to as AstroTurf, although this was the name and trademark of a particular brand.
The main benefit of this type of surface was that they were hard wearing and they significantly reduced the amount of maintenance that was required compared with a natural grass playing field.
