Artificial Grass is something that we all have heard of by now and most of us want to get it installed, however we couldn’t find a good artificial grass buyers guide anywhere. So, we decided to put one together for you!
Besides water restrictions in Cape Town making our lawns look pale and filled with thorns, there are many other benefits to Synthetic Grass, but we will cover that in our next blog post! For now, let us help you figure out how to choose the right kind!
We are going to be looking at things to keep in mind when making a final choice.
Artificial Grass Buyers Guide:
Most people imagine luscious, long, green grass when they think of real grass and it is often what they would want for their homes.
If this is the case you find yourself in, we recommend going for the Emperor Spring 30mm.
Some people might want short and neat cut grass for their complex or business park, and for this we would recommend looking at the Emperor Evergreen 25mm or the Emperor Putting 15mm.
Yes the 15mm is mainly for golf courses, but you always have the option to install it anywhere else too.
For the second aspect, we are going to focus on density.
When it comes to density, it is more about the quality of the grass than anything else.
A good quality artificial grass will have a weight of about 3kg per m2.
Grass might be grass, but we all know that there is no lawn that looks exactly the same as the next.
As this is a natural occurrence in real grass, they have made a variety of colours in synthetic grass as well.
Of course when it comes to installing grass, you still want it to look as real as possible – no one wants a lawn that looks like bad quality plastic that has simply been painted green.
There are shades such as olive greens, darker greens and lime greens. Here it all comes down to personal preference and what you want your home to look like.
Most artificial grass companies will always give you a sample to take home with you. However, these samples can sometimes be extremely small and not of much help. Use them to dissect which ones you like best and once you call someone for a site visit, simply ask them for a bigger sample so that you can have a better judgement of what it will really look like.
There we have it! There might be a few more aspects to keep in mind such as your budget, but these are the most basic yet most important rules to keep in mind when buying grass.
We hope our artificial grass buyers guide has shone some light on the topic so that you don’t feel completely lost when you browse our website.
