How to Choose Artificial Grass​


Daytona Turf Rolls

Before you start shopping for the perfect artificial grass, there are some important factors you should keep in mind.

Durability​


Synthetic turf is a big investment, so of course, you want to buy something that will last. When it comes to durability, face weight is the most important thing to look out for.

The face weight refers to the weight of one square yard of turf. The heavier the face weight, the denser the turf, which means it will be more durable.

  • 1-20 oz: This lower range of face weight is made for low-traffic applications.
  • 21-40 oz: Use this face weight for low to moderate-traffic applications.
  • 41-60 oz: This face weight is great for moderate traffic.
  • 61-80 oz: Choose this face weight for demanding applications and heavy traffic.
  • 81-100 oz: Our most heavy-duty option to withstand the most intense wear and tear.

Material​


Fake grass can be made from a few different materials, and they each have strengths and weaknesses.

  • Nylon: (The Most Durable): Nylon is the most durable fiber used to manufacture turf. However, it does fade in direct sunlight, so it’s not a good choice for outdoor turf.
  • Polypropylene: (Great for Outdoors): This material won’t fade in direct sunlight, and it’s softer and less abrasive than nylon. However, it’s not as durable as nylon.
  • Polyethylene: (Eco-Friendly): Made from recycled plastic and glass bottles, polyethylene is both eco-friendly and more economical than nylon or polypropylene. It’s the softest choice of all, and it doesn’t fade in direct sunlight.

Price​


If you’re working on a tight budget, you need to take price into account. Good news! Many cheap fake grass choices provide excellent quality without being expensive.

The great thing about synthetic turf is that it pays for itself over time. You don’t have to spend money on lawn care tools, and you won’t have to worry about huge water bills, either.
