What factors should you consider when choosing artificial grass for your needs?
Artificial grass is defined as a ‘surface of synthetic filaments made to look like natural grass’. It is most commonly used in areas where natural grass would struggle to grow, or in places where it is difficult to maintain a lawn. Artificial grass can be used for residential and commercial applications, on balconies, roof terraces, patios, decking areas, around swimming pools, and in play areas for child
Some factors to consider before buying artificial grass are;
- The intended use of the artificial grass - is it for a garden, commercial area, or play area?
- The location of the artificial grass - is it in a shady spot, or will it be getting a lot of sun?The type of subsoil - is it sand, clay, or chalk?
- The amount of traffic the artificial grass will get - is it in a high traffic area, or will it be used sparingly?
- The type of infill - is it sand, crumb rubber, or synthetic
These are just a few things to consider before purchasing artificial grass. For more information, please contact our experts at Artificial Grass Newcastle Experts.
Which type of artificial grass is best for you - synthetic or natural turf fibre?
There are different types of artificial grass available on the market, each with its own benefits. Synthetic grass is made from a variety of materials, including nylon, polypropylene and polyethylene. It's durable, low-maintenance and can withstand heavy traffic. Natural turf fibre artificial grass is made from recycled materials, such as wood pulp and plastic bottles. It's environmentally friendly and requires less maintenance than synthetic grass.
When choosing artificial grass, you need to consider your budget, the amount of maintenance you're willing to do, and the climate in your area. Synthetic grass is a good choice if you're looking for a low-maintenance option that can withstand heavy traffic. If you're concerned about the environment, natural turf fibre artificial grass is a good choice.
How do you determine the right amount of fake grass to order for your project?
To determine the amount of synthetic grass to use on a project, you need to know the square footage of the area you're working with. You also need to take into account the type of infill you'll be using. Infill is what gives artificial grass its bounce and stability. The three most common types of infill are crumb rubber, silica sand, and recycled tires.
