Deciding to install artificial grass is a great first step toward a prettier, less work-intensive future. It’s so versatile, you can use it for almost anything, not only replacing your lawn. But that versatility also means there are multiple factors to consider when choosing which artificial grass to use.
Here at Heavenly Greens, we offer top-quality synthetic turf that has been specifically designed for different purposes. For instance, you wouldn’t want a “lawn” on your backyard putting green, or you’d always be putting from the rough. Conversely, the “green” you want for putting isn’t soft and fluffy like your front lawn should be.
To make it easier to learn about and compare different types of artificial grass, we’ve put together this illustrated Heavenly Greens Product Comparison Guide. In addition, here are five points to keep in mind when choosing the best grass for your application:
The four most common uses for artificial grass are yards, other outdoor living areas, dog kennels and play spaces, and backyard putting greens. But you don’t have to stop there. You can create a bocce court, “grow” your own rooftop or balcony grass, or carpet your kid’s bedroom. Artificial grass can be perfectly practical – such as replacing your natural grass lawn – or wildly imaginative.
2. Physical characteristics
There are five features that come together to define each type of fake grass:
- Pile height
Other features can sometimes come into play as well. For example, architects or designers working to achieve LEED certification must use products that meet specific sustainability requirements.
Unfortunately, it is not difficult to find poor-quality artificial grass on the market today. And this is one case where you get what you pay for. Cheap fake grass won’t look as good, perform as well, or last as long as you had hoped. Not even close. Heavenly Greens sells only superior quality products, because we want every one of our customers to see gorgeous, reliable, long-lasting results.
Poor quality installation workmanship will undermine your project, too. Even the best product cannot make up for inadequate or improper installation. That’s why Heavenly Greens does not subcontract this work. Instead, we use our own highly-trained crews that are experienced installing your type of grass and project.
One way to know if you’re getting top-quality artificial grass is to read the warranty. Our products all come with 8-15 year warranties, the best in the industry. That said, your grass will likely last 20-25 years.
Naturally you want to know what your artificial grass project will cost. It’s a long-term investment in your home or business, and over that time it will pay for itself. To help you make that investment, Heavenly Greens offers financing options.
Finally, we recommend you consider one more thing: once your artificial grass is installed, what will you do with all that spare time and the fatter wallet you’ll gain by eliminating lawn care?
