Just like with anything else you buy, especially something you are investing money in, you want to ensure that you are making the right purchase and considering all the factors from the get-go.

What to Think About Before Buying Artificial Turf?

  1. Quality

Due to its expensive price tag and adverse installation process, you want to choose the right type of artificial turf the first time around, which is why considering the feel and the look of the material used to construct it, is quite important. If you are looking for a soft, natural-looking type of artificial turf, the best option would be polypropylene, polyamide, or polyethylene yarns. These materials usually have well-stitched turfs that maintain a consistent color, which lasts longer. Even though quality turf costs more, it is better to make an investment you are pleased with than purchase new turf several times.

  1. Traffic

Before installing artificial grass, consider the amount of traffic that will be moving through it. If you have pets or children, consider getting artificial grass that is durable and is not prone to wear and tear.

  1. Weight and density

Turf density gets measured by the amount of yarn or fiber that gets used per square unit of the given area. If the turf has more yarn content, it is likely to be more expensive but more reliable to handle the weight and thus, last much longer.

  1. Pile height

Considering the grass blades of artificial turf is equally as important as considering the overall quality thereof. If you are looking for a perfect-looking lawn, find one that does not contain grass blades that are too long as this may be too heavy and bend easily. This causes your lawn to look flat over time, which is the last thing you. The goal is to keep your lawn looking natural, which generally requires between a 30 mm to 37 mm pile height.

  1. Maintenance

The less maintenance your grass patch requires, the better. Given that you are probably purchasing synthetic grass because you don’t want to spend too much time looking after it, going with an option that has an easy drainage system and is high quality will require less time wasted on maintenance. By keeping your turf patch clean at all times, you also will not have to worry about repairing or replacing it for a long time.
