Seven Things to Consider Before you Buying Artificial Turf
When you decide to buy artificial turf, here are seven things you need to consider.
Before buying, the first thing to consider is that the amount of traffic in the area you wish to install artificial grass on. If you have pets or kids, wear-resisting is necessary, even you need to chose a soft and non-abrasive texture.
Quality artificial turf will feel soft, which is depend on polypropylene or polyyamide turfs, or polyethylene yarns. The color of outstanding artificial turf will not fade. Although quality turf will be more expensive than the others, but it is going to be a long-term investment, you will be better off purchasing the best.
Taller pile height may seem logical, and this will make your lawn look flat as time goes by. To keep your lawn looking natural, go for a pile height of 30-37mm. If you intend to place furniture on the turf, go for a shorter pile height as it will offer better sustainability.
Density and Weight
Generally speaking, the density and weight decide the price of artificial turf. If you cannot afford a dense turf, don’t worry; longevity and performance of turfs with lesser density can be improved with sand infill.
Infill helps the turf springy. Rubber and sand are popular infill material and you can choose either for your turf depending on your preference and budget.
Some colors can be chosen such as green-olive, lime green, dark green.
Artificial grass requires less maintenance than natural grass. However, maintaining artificial grass will increase its longevity and keep it looking great for years to come. All turfs need to be cared for more or less the same way; some will need more frequent care than others.
