The following steps are involved in the manufacturing of synthetic turf.

- After extrusion, the yarn is rolled and twisted.
- It then undergoes the tufting process, wherein the yarn is threaded and tufted into a backing cloth.
- The tufted rolls are transported to the area where secondary backing (with polyurethane or latex) is applied to the initial backing.
- After backing, holes are created in the turf to allow water drainage.
- The pile height, strength, stitches, and other features of each roll are carefully inspected.
This is how turf is made.
