How to Choose the Perfect Grass For You!

Making the switch to artificial grass is exciting. We’re not just saying that – it’s true. Like any investment in your home or business, there’s a thrill involved in the prospect. Transforming your lawn with Purchase Green artificial grass means you can look forward to decades of a yard that’s beautiful as well as water- and worry-free. So how do you choose the perfect grass?

Application

By virtue of reading these words you’ve set yourself on a good path already. Choosing Purchase Green is a great first step! But now let’s figure out what you plan on using your grass for…in other words, for what application will your artificial grass project be designed? ¬†We’ve found it works best to classify almost all our customers’ projects into one of five applications:

  • Landscapes
  • Pets
  • Putting Green
  • Playgrounds
  • Sports

You probably already know which of those five applications best describes your project. Now, let’s get a little more specific.

Traffic

We know the application, now, how much foot traffic are you expecting? Would you categorize the traffic as low, medium or high?

A low traffic grass is one suitable for walking on but it really shines as a mostly aesthetic landscape feature.

A medium traffic grass is what we sell the most of – a grass good for everyday use. Medium traffic grasses are ideal for normal use or for pets to run on, but less well-suited for regular, large gatherings or as a surface for, say a football game.

A high traffic grass can stand up to just about anything – these grasses are great for areas on which kids and pets will play a lot or for more intensive applications such as soccer or football.

Great, so now we know your application and your expected foot traffic…the next step is to decide on the look and feel of your grass.

Blade Profile

When we say Blade Profile we mean the attributes beyond foot traffic that make each of our grasses unique. Every Purchase Green grass offers a unique combination of the following:

  • Finish
  • Texture
  • Color
  • Shape
  • Temperature control

For example, Bermuda Pro has a shiny finish, a very soft texture, and olive bicolor, a diamond shaped-blade and no temperature control. Vista Natural 80, meanwhile, is low shine with a stiffer texture, a Spring bicolor, a V-shaped blade and features Cool Yarn technology.

For these reasons, we encourage our customers to get their eyes, hands and feet(!) on our grasses. Each of our grasses is carefully crafted to provide a particular experience. It’s why we carry so many varieties – to ensure there’s one just right for you.

And that, in a nutshell, is how to choose the perfect grass for you. You can learn a lot more about our grasses and their individual attributes by browsing our awesome Knowledge Base.
