Artificial grass has come a long way since it was first developed. Modern artificial grass is a lot tougher than ever before, and there is a huge variety of brands, types, colours, shades, and thicknesses to choose from. If you are having trouble picking the best possible grass for your home, business, or sports venue, then you’ve come to the right place. Here are our best tips to help you pick the perfect faux grass for your needs.
Consider Traffic and Usage
One of the first things you need to do is consider how often and frequently your artificial lawn will be used. Are plenty of feet and paws going to be running and walking over the turf on a daily basis, or is your lawn going to be used infrequently? If your lawn is going to be consistently in use, then you should choose a turf that is durable.
When you shop around for artificial turf, you’ll quickly note that most turfs supplied by reputable companies like Premier Grass are high-quality. There are some companies that supply cheap artificial rugs and grass, but if you look closely at the quality of these turfs, you’ll understand exactly why they are so much cheaper. Cheap turfs will shed, they look fake, and they are not going to last very long. It’s better to pay more for a quality lawn that will last longer and look much better.
Consider Pile Height
Artificial turf is available in different thicknesses. Some have a pile shorter than 7mm, so consider your needs when deciding the height of your grass. Most people are tempted to buy a turf with a much longer blade length, thinking that it might be softer and might look better. But lawns with a long pile will flatten out over time, and as you use them, your faux turf will soon look weathered and flat. A shorter pile is less likely to bend and lie down and will look much healthier and fluffier as time goes on. That is why at Premier Grass we have developed “Y” shape, “C” shape, Hollow Shape and Diamond shape yarn with high Dtex and density. Our range of landscaping artificial grass length from 20mm to 50mm with high dtex will give you a natural and soft look.
Consider Weight and Density
Some synthetic turfs are a lot denser than others. The higher the density of your artificial turf, the more durable it is. The denser faux grass is also a lot heavier, and you might have to check the bearing capacity of buildings before you install the grass indoors or on your patio.
Artificial grass is available in various colours. You can even choose a lawn that is bright pink, blue, white or red. Most people prefer a natural green shade because it looks like natural grass. When you take a closer look at your live lawn, you will also note that the grass isn’t uniform in colour. There are different shades mixed into the same patch of grass. For a turf that looks completely natural, you should pick a grass with a variety of colours and shades instead of something uniform.
Some faux lawns are designed to be hypoallergenic. If you are choosing a lawn for children’s areas or for pet care, then it might be better to look for something that naturally deters allergens and pollens.
