4 Questions To Ask Yourself To Ensure You’re Buying the Right Artificial Grass

July 31, 2023

Synthetic grass is beloved by homeowners throughout the Las Vegas area for good reason. Not only is it more durable than natural grass, but it also remains perfectly green and pristine all year long, enhancing curb appeal and increasing property value.

However, although all artificial turf products are beautiful, they aren’t all the same. Synthetic grass products are available in a variety of color tones, blade heights, densities, and other features that accommodate a range of residential and commercial needs. When it comes time to choose which artificial grass product you want to install on your property, here are four questions to ask yourself to help you make the right decision.

1. What Will You Use the Space For?

The first question to ask yourself when buying artificial grass is what you plan to use the space for. Will it be indoors or outdoors? Is it mostly for visual appeal, or will it be used heavily? Will it have a unique or specific function, such as a playground, athletic field, or outdoor putting green?

These are all important questions to answer to ensure you’re selecting the right artificial grass product for the job. If you’re looking for a turf product for a putting green or dog kennel, for example, you’ll need a product that is durable and can handle heavy foot traffic and daily wear. On the other hand, if you want a visually striking landscape solution for your front yard that receives little foot traffic, you may want a product that looks more natural and lush. Having a complete understanding of what you plan to use the area for is one of the best and easiest ways to narrow down which synthetic grass product is best for you.

2. What Do You Want the Area To Look Like?

Synthetic grass has many practical benefits, but it isn’t only a matter of function. When you invest in artificial turf landscaping, you want it to look good, so it’s important to ask yourself what exactly you want the area to look like.

Synthetic turf products come in a range of hues and appearances, and they can all be customized to unique shapes, sizes, and uses. Would you prefer a deep olive green or a bright apple green? Do you want it to look long and lush or short and trimmed? If you’re installing an outdoor putting green, what shape do you want it to take? Where should the holes be placed? For playground turf, how big is the area and where will the jungle gym be placed? Envisioning your final product and knowing what you want visually is a major factor in choosing which artificial grass product will bring that vision to life.

3. Will Kids Use the Turf?

Although all SGW synthetic grass products are non-toxic, lead-free, and safe for kids, some artificial grass products are better suited for use by children than others. If you expect your kids to run and play on the landscape regularly, you may want to opt for a product with short pile height and high durability.

You can also purchase specialized playground turf and kid-friendly installation accessories to enhance the safety and function of your artificial grass landscape. Our PlayScapes system was designed especially with kids in mind, which is why it utilizes some of our safest and most durable products for kid-specific uses. Our PlayScapes turf products are IPEMA-certified and, when installed with a foam underpad, can help protect kids from impact injuries and falls from up to 10 feet high, making your outdoor space more fun for them and worry-free for you.

4. Will Pets Use the Turf?

Similarly, it’s important to know whether any pets will be using your new synthetic grass installation. Turf’s efficient drainage makes all synthetic grass more pet-friendly than natural grass, but there are special products and install accessories that can help make your landscape even more pet-friendly if you anticipate heavy use by dogs or cats.

Pet turf is extremely durable yet provides an extremely realistic appearance. The triple tuft binding also keeps the blades securely connected to the turf’s backing at all times, so your pet can’t rip out grass blades or dig up holes like they would with natural sod. Pet turf also has one of the most efficient drainage rates on the market, so their urine and waste are quickly flushed away to prevent odors and keep your lawn sanitary. Paired with other antimicrobial and pet-safe products like infill and turf deodorizer, you can optimize your synthetic grass lawn for pet use while keeping it beautiful and functional for humans.
