Are you considering replacing your water-guzzling natural grass lawn with an artificial one? There are many distinct advantages to installing artificial turf in your backyard, especially in drought-stricken states like California and Massachusetts.
Among other things, artificial grass:
- Requires no maintenance or trimming
- Doesn’t need to be watered
- Looks great year-round
- Doesn’t need fertilizer or pesticides
- Is eco-friendly
- Is more durable and long-lasting than real grass
But if you’re considering artificial grass, you likely have many questions.
Things like how long will the installation process take? Should you put in the grass yourself or have it professionally installed? And perhaps most importantly, what should you look for when choosing an artificial turf manufacturer?
All of these are valid questions. However, choosing the right provider is arguably the most important decision you can make regarding your artificial grass. With that in mind, let’s focus on three key factors to consider when sizing up artificial turf manufacturers for your project.
1. Variety of Selection
One of the key factors to evaluate any artificial grass provider by is the variety of grasses they offer. There are specific types of artificial grass available for lawns, playgrounds, backyard putting greens, pet areas, sports turf, and landscaping features.
Within each of those categories, there are a wide variety of other distinctions regarding the color, texture, firmness, temperature, in-fill, and durability of the artificial grass material available. That’s why in order to ensure you get the right kind of artificial grass for your project, you need to chose an artificial turf manufacturer that offers a wide variety of selection.
2. Durability and Protection
Installing artificial grass can be an investment, both in terms of time and finances. That’s why when choosing an artificial grass provider it’s important to consider how long the grass will last and whether or not it’s protected by a warranty.
While you want your artificial grass installation to be as cost-effective as possible, cheap quality artificial grass, or turf that’s not properly installed, can wear out over time and leave your lawn looking unnatural, unattractive and threadbare.
That’s why it’s always important to find an artificial grass manufacturer that offers not just variety, but quality and durability in terms of their products. The mark of a good manufacturer is that they will also be willing to back the quality of their product up with a warranty, like the 10-year warranty Purchase Green offers.
3. Reliable Installation Service
Everyone loves a good DIY project, but laying out your own artificial grass is not always as easy as it looks. That’s why there are many advantages to having your artificial grass professionally installed. So, if possible, it’s always best to find artificial grass manufacturers who also offer installation.
But just as not all artificial grasses are created equally in terms of quality and durability, not all providers are equally capable of installing artificial grass. At PG, we’ve performed literally thousands of artificial grass installations and maintain a team of well-trained professionals who are adept at installing all varieties of turf in all varieties of soil types, yard sizes, and landscaping designs.
Making the Right Choice Going Forward
Artificial grass is a great choice when it comes to saving water, saving money, cutting down on maintenance, and ensuring you can best enjoy your yard year-round. Once you’ve made the decision to have artificial grass installed in your yard, it’s one you won’t want to reverse. That’s why it’s vitally important to choose the right artificial turf manufacturer.
Considering these three basic factors will hopefully provide you with the guidance you need to make the right decision.
