If you’re planning on making the switch to artificial grass but still want something that looks real, you’re in luck. Today there are plenty of real-looking artificial grass varieties, made with different materials, that are available depending on your needs.
Here are the 3 main categories of artificial grass based on material:
- Nylon – A strong material that has the stiffest blades of grass; nylon is great at holding its original shape and is useful for areas of high foot traffic or for sporting needs. It stands up well to high temperatures and is the most expensive artificial grass material.
- Polypropylene – A lightweight and flexible material; polypropylene is the least expensive material and looks soft and natural. However, it is the least durable and heat-resistant.
- Polyethylene – This material produces the most natural looking grass; polyethylene is easy to maintain and a popular choice for homeowners who want artificial grass but don’t want to sacrifice aesthetics.
In order to choose the best type of artificial grass/material for your needs, talk to an expert.
