Plastic Grass A Solution For Muddy Play Fields?

In the Evergreen State, parks and schools are replacing natural grass with artificial turf.

Suffering from too many muddy play fields, the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation has begun replacing the 'real stuff' with synthetic plastic grass, claiming it will stop games from being rained or 'mudded' out. Opponents of the plastic grass are all razzled up about the high cost of replacement and the thought of trying to relax and lie down on a field of abnormally green plastic grass.
