Money is not the only consideration when it comes to choosing the right synthetic grass. There are several other factors that need to be thought through before purchasing an evergreen lawn that will last for years to come. After all, Synthetic grass is a major investment.
With such a wide range of manufacturers and products, choosing the best artificial grass for your backyard lawn can be a little daunting. There are many different attributes that you should be taking a closer look at before making a purchase. You’ll also need to consider exactly what you will be using for your artificial lawn. Given synthetic grass is widely used in schools, sporting venues, commercial spaces, and increasingly homes, there are different styles suitable for multiple applications.
To help you through the decision-making process, here are some factors to consider when choosing your synthetic grass product:
Synthetic grass installers should be able to advise to the type of grass for its pile height, density, weight, and color that will be suited to your space as well as a recommend a specific product. It’s worthwhile to request some samples from your installer so you can compare the different products and make a perfect choice. Synthetic grass is a long-term investment so it is important to select the grass that both will suit your needs and appeals to you.
Good quality synthetic grass will be made of polypropylene, polyamide polyethylene yarns or a mixture of all three. You will find a quality turf product to be evenly backed, color consistent and contains well-stitched tuft. Synthetic grass is a game where quality products win every time. Don’t be afraid to ask for samples either especially if you are purchasing online. You want to experience the product first hand before setting up an installation. This is the product you must see and touch before making a purchase decision.
The features of your synthetic grass will again depend on where you plan to install the grass and how you intend to use the space.
Here are the features to consider:

  1. Pile Height – Choosing a pile height is usually just a matter of taste. For those that like the look of freshly cut grass, anything between 25-30mm is a good choice and for a natural looking lawn, we recommend choosing between 30-38mm. Shorter pile height is more hard-wearing and used with a layer of flexible padding beneath the turf to meet safety requirements for sports surfaces and in pre-schools and playgrounds. While the longer pile is more visually appealing and softer underfoot and is used on landscaping, residential lawns, and backyards.
  2. Density and Weight – For density, it refers to the number of synthetic yarns per square meter of turf. Synthetic grass with a higher turf density is more durable and they are more expensive too. Concessions can be made for density if the price is a factor and you can compensate with infill to a degree. For weight, the higher the quality, the more your synthetic grass will weigh. Of course, this is of no consequence during a traditional install. Greater density and weight will give you fuller, more lush grass.
  3. Color – the Color choice is entirely dependent upon personal taste, there will be no right and wrong. You’ll notice a wide range of colors when it comes to artificial grass and that’s because there are many different shades of green found within real grass. You may want to look for a product that contains a few brown flecks too. This will make your yard look even more natural and full. When choosing colors, it is vitally important to remember to place the samples where the turf will be laid like outside on your lawn. Because there are different lighting conditions will make the artificial grass appear different in color. For example, your samples will look darker indoors due to lower levels of natural light. And if your garden is sheltered and receives little sunlight, it may be best to choose a light-colored artificial lawn as it will brighten up your garden.

Synthetic grass installation may seem simple to do yourself but to achieve a clean, sharp edge, neat seams, an even surface and a perfect finished result it requires skill and experience. When choosing a company to install your synthetic grass, its best to consider how established they are and how much experience they have like NICE BACKYARD as ideally, you want a company that can manage the whole process. For paying a company to install your grass, you are also paying to make sure the products they use are high-quality.
The costlier the grass, the less you will have to spend to maintain it. Consider other factors too like if you live in an area where weather could be a factor, that is an important consideration. And if you have a potential for limbs and other debris to fall on your lawn often, a factor that into your decision. Not only will those items need to be removed, but your turf will also need to be durable to handle it.
