How to get the best artificial grass

Adelaide’s artificial grass is booming. As climate change makes sustainable natural lawns increasingly difficult to maintain, people started to look for artificial grass. Quality Artificial Turf provides a guide to help you make the right choice when purchasing artificial turf in Adelaide.

Budget:

Price is always the top priority. The first step is always to set a budget. This will determine the sort of grass you choose. You don’t want to fall in love with a grass that you can’t afford. Because most grasses are offered in square metres, knowing how much you can spend per metre will help you eliminate grasses that are too expensive.

Artificial grass is an investment in the long term. They not only have minimal maintenance requirements, but they also add to the value of your property. Customers frequently ask if the grass is a worthwhile investment. Yes is the only answer. The money saved on gardening and water costs over time may add up quickly. While the price may appear exorbitant now, it will pay for itself over time. Not to mention that having turf boosts the value of your property if you ever decide to move or sell. We understand that the initial investment might be expensive for certain consumers. You may give a call to our consultant to discuss your concern.

Understand Artificial Grass Terminology:

Actually, fake grass is also complicated. In this section, we’ll explain some terminology so you can understand product specifications and find the best artificial turf for your project.

  • The artificial grass uses only three materials: polyethylene, polypropylene and nylon. Polyethylene is the most commonly used because of its balance of versatility and durability, aesthetics and softness. Polypropylene is commonly used for thatch layers on greens and landscape grasses. Nylon is the most expensive and durable yarn material, but it is not soft.
  • Density is also called stitch count. A denser stitch count means higher quality turf. Dense turf products are more durable and provide a more realistic artificial turf.
  • Face weight refers to the weight of a turf per square meter of material. The heavier the face weight, the better the quality of artificial grass and the more durable it is. However, the face weight does not include the weight of the backing material.

Now you know the budget of your artificial grass and have proper research on it. You are ready to the next step.

What are the characteristics of the best artificial grass?

  1. It can withstand heavy traffic or usage. Before making a decision, consider the following questions. Are you a family with a lot of kids? Do you have any animals? What is the age of your pet? When picking a lawn, keep traffic in mind. You may not enjoy the full lifespan of your new grass if you get a product that cannot sustain heavy use.
  2. Good quality artificial grass always has a lot of weight. In general, the higher the mass, the heavier the turf is. It’s also easier to the layout. The denser your grass, the more durable it will be. 
  3. High-quality artificial grass tends to have good reliability. You want a sod that won’t melt in the heat and retain its original shape. You also don’t want its colour to fade easily with constant sun exposure.
  4. To have a natural colour is also very important. Green appears to be the best choice when presented with a large number of samples. Who doesn’t want to have a lush green lawn? Some clients, in fact, want a more “natural” appearance. For those looking for something a little more natural, we recommend multi-tone turf. Choosing the right colour is key if you want to mimic traditional grasses, as natural grasses usually don’t come in just one shade.

Once you do some research and confirm the type you want, you are good at finding the best artificial grass for your home. If you’re interested in an Adelaide artificial turf installation.
