How to Select the Best Artificial Turf Product for Your Home

Artificial grass is beloved by homeowners throughout Dallas 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. Although all turf products are equally beautiful, they aren’t all the same. Artificial grass products are available in a variety of colors, heights, densities, and other features that accommodate a range of residential needs. When it comes time to choose which artificial grass product you want to install in your backyard, here are some factors to consider.

Synthetic Grass Face Weight

The face weight of artificial grass products is a measurement of how much the synthetic grass weighs per square yard. This usually indicates the density of the blades within the turf, with a higher face weight correlating to a denser product and a softer feel. The heavier the face weight is, the stronger and more hardwearing it is as well. Face weights often range from about 50 ounces to 90 ounces. A lighter face weight is recommended for homes that want a lush showpiece lawn that will see only light to moderate foot traffic. If you want a synthetic grass lawn that will often be used for running, playing, and hosting events, you may want a product with a heavier face weight so that it is more durable. Choosing the appropriate face weight for your home’s needs is crucial, since choosing a product with too light of a face weight can reduce the lifespan of your artificial grass and compromise its beautiful appearance.

Artificial Turf Pile Height

The term pile height describes the length of the blades that are used in the artificial grass. The shorter the pile height is, the better it is for use in more durable turf products. Longer blades of grass provide a more luxurious look, but they can become matted and unsightly if your lawn is overused. If you want to prioritize a lush appearance over heavy use and durability, then choosing a product with a longer pile height will be the best option for your home. If you have kids, play sports, or own pets, you may want to consider a shorter pile height, since it will require less maintenance in order to avoid a matted appearance.
