Different Kinds of Artificial Grass

Artificial grass is more popular than ever because of its many benefits like lower maintenance and conserving money on water bills. Today, artificial turf is becoming more popular among homeowners.

But not all homeowners understand the factors to consider when buying commercial artificial grass. Before starting your faux lawn project, you should make sure that you choose the right type for your home.


  • Nylon Artificial Grass – known for having the strongest blades, the nylon type remains its original shape despite being subject to foot traffic and complex athletic plays. This type can withstand high temperatures and not lose stability. Despite its price, this type is popular for use in play areas and on sports fields.
  • Polyethylene Artificial Grass –has a lifelike texture and requires little maintenance. This is the best option for homeowners who want to replace their lawn without sacrificing its visual aesthetic and natural feel. This type of grass is used in large areas such as backyards and lawns.
  • Polypropylene Artificial Grass – the least expensive of all types, it has a more delicate texture since it is made from solid pellets. However, it is the most durable of the three types and quickly wears out.


  • Short Pile Height this is the type that’s shorter than 30mm. It gives your turf a natural look. This is an excellent option for homeowners because it makes it easier to build a greenhouse.
  • Medium Pile Height– synthetic grasses have an average length between 30mm-37mm. This can give your turf a natural look without adding bulk and is great for your backyard or recreational space.
  • Long Pile Height– this is 37mm longer than the standard length. It can look heavy and flat. For some, extended pile heights can seem strange.

You will need to take the time to find the right type of fake grass for your home. Make sure you think carefully about which one you want to put on your lawn before starting your artificial grass installation.
