Artificial Grass

There are many factors for consideration when deciding which artificial grass to choose but the main ones are Yarn, Construction and the Backing.

Artificial grass technology has moved on at a rapid pace and the yarns are thinner, softer and matte in finish, all of which go to make a fabulously-realistic grass.

In addition to the yarn, the construction of the grass plays an important part in the durability of the grass. In terms of construction, 3 specifications should be borne in mind; the weight per square metre, pile height and the number of stitches per square metre.

Finally, a quality backing is key in order to lock the tufts securely in place. The backing normally consists of a primary backing into which the fibres are tufted. A layer of latex (secondary backing) is then applied in order to secure the fibres in place. This secondary backing ensures that the fibres will not come loose and serves to keep the lawn’s appearance lush and green.
