They top layer and grass and has to be renewed every year, I understand that the actual base of the pitch will last 10 years ?
Not sure how that works with the artificial fibres though.

I think the roots grow through them.

The top is 100% natural i believe.

You are largely right...a synthetic mesh supports a traditional turf pitch.

For any gardening geeks out there....you can take a look at the below
