So a little while ago you were considering artificial grass to beautify your home or business – easy decision, right?
No water, no maintenance (well, a tiny bit) and it looks great all year round. It even pays for itself in a few years and then…well the savings really start piling up after that. You’ll save water and help contribute to combating the drought. An easy decision. But now you’re off to your local Purchase Green store and, wham, 37 varieties of grass to choose from. How do you decide? The first step is deciding on your application.
People choose artificial grass for many different reasons. Many folks just want a lawn that looks great all the time and requires very little maintenance. The grass you choose, however, should complement the amount of foot traffic you expect the grass to receive. Our grasses can be categorized by the traffic levels you want them to be able to handle. Foot traffic can lead to wear patterns. Depending on the traffic, mitigating wear patterns can be achieved through a combination of face weight, pile height, structure as well as the thickness and width of the individual fibers.

At Purchase Green we know every customer has specific needs when it comes to artificial grass, so we take care to craft each family of grasses with unique design and function characteristics.
Our customers prefer a wide variety of features in their artificial grass. Some like a shiny grass that’s reminiscent of morning dew. Others prefer a matte finish. Some customers want a light-traffic grass that’s great for aesthetics while others prefer a durable grass that can stand up to the heaviest traffic. Some customers even want a specific blade shape! That’s part of the reason we carry such a massive variety. We truly do have something for everyone.
Purchase Green offers eleven different yarns. With each yarn, there is a balance to be struck. As an example, generally the softer you make a yarn, the more you have to account for improving performance in the structure. Take our Nature’s Sod and Nature’s Sod Plush. These are two of the softest yarns we carry. But we also want them to perform, so we’ve designed the blades in an S-shape which helps maximize performance. The result is an awesome-looking, very soft, fiber that still performs. Hey, it’s the Purchase Green way.
There are many things that set Purchase Green apart from other artificial grass companies. A big reason is our backing systems. The backing system is what gives our grasses their amazing strength. The durability, performance and even the lifespan of our grass begins with the backing system.
