Artificial grass has come a long way since the first AstroTurf carpeted the Houston Astrodome in 1966. With a drought underway in California, it's no wonder I'm noticing more homes with fake turf in my neighborhood. Or not noticing: I just learned that one neighbor (whose yard I've always admired) actually replaced her lawn with artificial turf several years ago. How did fake grass get so good at fooling us?
