Artificial Grass: Frequently asked questions

What types of Artificial Grass are there and what determines a good product?

There are many types of artificial grass, but the most common is Polyethylene (PE) which is a man-made plastic that can be made to look like natural turf. It comes in rolls and you lay it down on your lawn just as if you were laying carpet or linoleum flooring. The other type of artificial grass is called Polypropylene (PP). This material has been around for years longer than PE, but was not very popular until recently because it does not have quite the same realistic appearance as PE. PP also tends to hold onto moisture more readily than PE so requires more frequent watering and maintenance during dry periods; however this may actually be an advantage depending on where you live. For example, here in Southern California we don’t get much rain at all during certain times of year so having a product with good water retention properties would make sense for us since we need our yard watered every day anyway.

The quality of the Artificial Grass is determined by its durability, colorfastness and UV resistance.

Who should use a Artificial Grass?

Artificial Grass is perfect for residential and commercial applications. It can be used in backyards, playgrounds, pet areas, sports fields or any other area where natural grass would not thrive.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Artificial Grass?

You should buy Artificial Grass that is durable, easy to clean and maintain. It must be able to withstand all weather conditions so you can use it for a long time without any damage or wear and tear.

The most important thing to look out for when comparing a Artificial Grass is the quality of material and workmanship. Make sure that you are getting what you pay for.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Artificial Grass?


Artificial Grass is a great alternative to natural grass. It has many advantages over real grass, such as no mowing or watering and it does not require any fertilizers. The artificial turf can be used for residential lawns, commercial properties (such as golf courses), dog parks and playgrounds among others.


The main disadvantage of artificial grass is that it can be slippery when wet and may not stand up to heavy traffic. It also requires some maintenance, but this will vary depending on the type of turf you choose.
