Synthetic turf is great. It saves money and time and it looks good too. But, what about red synthetic grass? No one would expect that a red lawn would make waves with consumers.

Synthetic turf can be made in a wide range of colors and multicolored applications are actually quite common on sports fields. The first team to have a single, bold, non-green color of astroturf was Boise State. Theirs is blue. Red, the solid color of Eastern Washington, really stands out.
