If you have thought about transitioning to artificial grass but are not sure if it’s right for you, we have a solution.

In this article, we will break down the types of artificial grass available.

You don’t have to worry about it looking too artificial and the durability. We have a type to fit each one of your preferences. Read on if you’re ready to make the transition.

1. Nylon

Nylon is preferred because it’s the strongest of the different types of artificial grass. It has the stiffest pile, which allows it to endure heavy foot traffic without losing its shape.

Nylon turf is ideal if you live in places with high temperatures. It doesn’t melt or lose stability.

This type of turf is expensive due to its strength and texture. It appears like natural grass, but the texture is not as soft.

2. Polyethylene

If you’re looking for a type of turf more life-like, polyethylene is a good choice. Polyethylene comes in a vibrant green color which looks like real grass.

Many homeowners prefer this kind because it has a softer texture, unlike nylon which is coarse. The surface serves well for athletic activities such as softball, soccer, and baseball.

Because of the soft and durable material, it serves well for athletic activities such as softball, soccer, and baseball. This material also requires very little maintenance.

3. Polypropylene

If you have a tight budget, you can go for polypropylene. Although it’s less expensive, this material is also less durable.

The price is appealing for many homeowners looking to transition from real to artificial turf.

Keep in mind this turf can wear out faster and might not last long. We also don’t recommend it for places with extreme heat. The fibers could get misshapen if they are under intense heat and the surface could cease to look uniform

4. Average Fiber

You have an option when it comes to materials, but also have an option with the length of the fiber.

Average fiber measures 35mm approximately. If you’re decorating an area such as children playgrounds, pet areas or other small areas you can get average length fibers.

5. High Fibers

The high turf fibers are great when you want to install them by a garden. They give a textured fullness to the grass and it’s also comfortable.

The way the material is manufactured it allows for fast recovery after foot traffic. High fiber turf is great for areas surrounding swimming pools. Your smaller play areas will benefit from these fabrics.
