There are many factors to consider when shopping for high-quality artificial grass, from style to application to durability. While some features are more important than others, there are a few often overlooked features that might make all the difference in your shopping experience. Even if you’re happy with how your fake grass performs, there may be a few features you wished you’d known about before you made the investment.
Most people who shop for artificial grass are concerned about its look and feel. After all, many consumers use synthetic turf to enhance their homes and businesses. Given this information it would seem that many shoppers are missing out on some features that might be important to them. Here’s a list of three often overlooked but valuable features of artificial grass.
Made in the USA
There are many synthetic turf products on the market, but not all of them are made in the USA. According to a survey conducted by the Consumer Reports National Research Center, 78 percent of Americans would rather purchase an American product over an identical one made overseas. Buying goods that are made in America is a great way to support the economy. In some cases, it might equal higher quality. Look for a company that manufactures synthetic turf in America using only American parts. This means that they don’t use foreign goods and your product is not shipped from overseas.
When searching for beautiful fake grass, many people go for that perfect emerald-green hue. But purchasing synthetic grass that features a single color might not look as realistic as natural grass. Natural grass is complex in texture and color, which is why it’s important to look for a product that closely resembles the real thing. Fortunately, there are many synthetic turf products that feature tri-color technology, such as a combination of two different greens and a brown to accurately resemble natural grass.
Many consumers often overlook the traffic level of the synthetic turf, but this is also a very important feature to consider. Depending on the application, your fake grass project might be installed in a high-traffic area. Whether it will be used as a playground, dog run, or a lawn, synthetic grass that will be used on a regular basis should be designed for that purpose. When shopping for synthetic turf, make sure to look for the traffic level and purchase the turf accordingly.
