Nature’s Sod Premier: Why the Splurge is Worth Every Penny

At a whopping 93 ounce face weight, Purchase Green’s Nature’s Sod Premier product is by far our heaviest artificial grass product. A good rule of thumb when it comes to artificial grass is the higher the face weight, the thicker and more durable the grass. Nature’s Sod Premier literally has more fibers per square centimeter than all of our other products. Not only is Nature’s Sod Premier thicker than our other grasses, it is made from our highest quality yarn. Thiolon yarn. Thiolon yarn has a spine, which increases retention (grass bounces back after being walked on for long periods of time), and it increases durability. Animals are no match for this product. Thiolon yarn will work similarly to a sunflower in the sun. When the spine heats up, the fiber stands up! If you’re a customer that loves to entertain in their beautiful backyard, this spine is your new best friend. No matter how much foot traffic, the grass will always bounce right back instead of staying “matted”. Nature’s Sod Premier is stocked in 13.1 X 50 foot rolls and is currently sold at $3.65. It has a manufacturer’s warranty of 10 years too! Check out this installation of our Nature’s Sod Premier product in Toluca Lake, not only does the grass look great, but it actually makes the backyard look even better!

Artificial Grass at the World Cup!

Attention all crazy Soccer fanatics everywhere! Germany has been training on artificial grass to get prepared for the World Cup qualifier game against Kazakhstan. How cool is that?! A lot of the qualifying games are played on artificial grass so it’s super important for the players to train on artificial grass to better prepare themselves for the big games. Teams that train on artificial grass are considered to be “ahead of the game”.

“Against Russia the artificial pitch we trained on (in Mainz, Germany) ahead of the game was different than the one in Moscow. Now we have tried to find the same conditions,” Germany assistant coach Hansi Flick told reporters.”
“In past games the pitch was always different from what we had trained on and it is good to get used to the artificial pitch in advance,” said central defender Per Mertesacker.
“We won the last game in Kazakhstan but it was still difficult, also because of the pitch. Technically we have to be spot on.”

The World Cup qualifier games are now being played on artificial grass which is great news for the environment! Players will experience a better game and fewer injuries. Artificial grass is great for sports fields because of these reasons. Purchase Green is happy to provide its customers with practical sports grasses as well as an option for customers to produce their own. (Largely dependent on order size.)

Transform your Rooftop Garden with Artificial Grass

Artificial grass covered rooftops are the next big thing! More and more people are moving into urban areas and big cities where backyard space is limited and rooftop gardens are becoming all the rage! Purchase Green’s artificial lawn grasses can help you completely transform your rooftop living area into a beautiful and green, relaxing oasis. Purchase Green’s artificial grass is perfect for a rooftop solution and its ability to be easily installed only makes it more perfect. The installation is a piece of cake and can be done rather quickly. In fact, most homeowners do not need to hire an installer! All you need to purchase is a special turf glue, which is sold on Purchase Green’s website. Spread the glue around the border and depending on how big your artificial grass area is, a couple lines of glue down the center and the install is done! We do not recommend nailing the grass the rooftop as you may puncture the roof and when the rain season starts, you’ll know it! No longer do you need to hose down your rooftop grass area when you have artificial grass. Instead you can kick back, relax and enjoy the weather. Covering your rooftop patio area in artificial grass is a great idea if you’re planning on entertaining guests too, the grass will stay a beautiful green color and guests will love it!

The Wonderful World of Infill!

Installing artificial grass can be a confusing and overwhelming experience for any first-time installer. Purchase Green offers a wide range of infill, each one tailored for a specific installation. Infill is very important to every artificial grass installation as it does three things, 1. It weighs down the turf, this prevents the turf from looking like carpet that needs to be stretched when it expands and contracts during the different weather seasons. 2. It provides memory, after hours of foot traffic on the grass; the infill will help it prevent from looking matted down. And 3. Infill protects the turf’s backing! Some artificial grass companies will tell you that infill is not necessary, they are wrong!

Now a good rule of thumb is the higher the grit, the smaller the infill particle. So a 30 grit infill is going to be much smaller than a 16 grit infill. Because the fibers are curled a lot tighter in a putting green, we always recommend using a 30 grit infill. Depending on the lawn installation, we recommend a 12/20 grit mix, a 16/30 mix or a 16 grit infill. Purchase Green currently offers four types of infill. First is our MellowFill. This is our highest quality infill option so it is a little pricier than our other options. Next is our Silica Sand option, although it is our least expensive option, Silica sand is highly absorbent so when pets go to the bathroom on it, the odor is very noticeable, very quickly. Silica sand is best for a home or area that does not have pets. This infill is also available in a green color. And lastly, Purchase green offers a mixed infill, it is a mix of silica sad and rubber infill. Rubber is typically not recommended because it does get considerably hot during the summer months. Some installers prefer using a rubber/sand mix infill Purchase Green likes to carry it. Of course, any questions about which infill you should use can be answered by a Purchase Green representative.
