How to choose the most suitable artificial grass model

How to choose the most suitable artificial grass model

When someone sets out to install artificial grass, they embark on a search for the ideal product and supplier. Usually, there is a lot of literature to take in, which usually consists of glossy paraphernalia with attractive images of happy people with striking Anglo-Saxon features to match. It seems like a wonderland of perfection. But when all is said and done, despite all the green fireworks, artificial grass is just a carpet plain and simple ( in fact, carpets and grass are manufactured using exactly the same machinery ). This green carpet is designed and manufactured to look identical to the natural grass it is designed to replace. Therefore, in addition to resembling natural grass, it must be resistant to outdoor use
 
All carpets are composed of woven yarn-fibres on a support backing. There are three factors that determine both the cost and the characteristics of all carpets. These are namely:
  • How much yarn-fibre is used in the manufacture of each model ( specified by the "yarn weight per square meter" shown ). Logically, the greater the amount of yarn used, the higher the cost of the product
  • The quality and characteristics of the yarn-fibre ( the backing is not as important ) used in the making of each model, such as:
    • Its composition ( type of polymer, and whether or not it comes from recycled materials )
    • The type of extrusion used in order to manufacture yarn of special shapes ( diamond, "C" shaped concave, "U" shaped concave, "S" shaped, etc... )
    • The possible extra additives added to obtain variations in its texture
    • The final finishing, etc... 
  • The complexity of the tufting system 
A combination of these factors will determine both the cost of each model of artificial grass, and the following characteristics:
  • Degree of comfort ( fluffiness )
  • Degree of resilience ( recovery of verticality after being stepped on )
  • Appearance - degree of realism
  • Degree of softness to the touch

How to choose the most suitable artificial grass model


We have divided our collection of models into four ranges, "NATURAL" ( the most affordable choice ), "PREMIUM", "LUXURY" and "SUPERLUXURY" ( the highest quality and most expensive choice ), and each of them have multiple models, so that we can satisfy any budget or need. The internal order has been established according to price and the models are listed in ascending order from the cheapest to the most expensive
 
When choosing a specific model of artificial grass, it is important to take into account what it will be used for
 
We have defined the following levels of use, and explain typical cases for each level
  • Low - merely decorative ( ornamental gardens, roundabouts, decorative separators, shop windows, fairs, events, etc... )
  • Medium - it will be stepped on occasionally ( private gardens, terraces, penthouse apartments, swimming pools or other less frequented areas )
  • High - this will be treaded on frequently ( private gardens, swimming pools, or any other frequently occupied area )
  • Very high / intense use - it is going to be treaded on continuously ( gardens of neighbourhood communities, outdoor community pools, etc... )
In addition to its level of use, we believe that in order to fine-tune the selection of the most suitable model of artificial grass based on your specific needs or preferences, the following aspects should be carefully taken into consideration:
  • Degree of comfort, or fluffiness: the most suitable suggestion is that the more you use the grass, the higher the comfort you should seek out
  • The level of resilience, recovery of verticality after being stepped on: the most suitable suggestion is that the more you use the grass, the higher the resilience ought to be
  • Degree of real-life appearance or similarity to natural grass. As this is an exclusively aesthetic factor, each user will attach a level of importance based on their own specific criteria and circumstances
  • Degree of softness of the yarn-fibre to the touch: this should be carefully considered if the grass is to be stepped on by bare feet, or if the grass is for a children's play area
  • Warranty period
  • Yarn height
  • Yarn weight ( per square meter )
  • Density ( stitches per square meter )
  • Whether a fire resistance classification is compulsory
  • Whether the CE marking is compulsory
  • If micro monofilaments ( MMF ) are used. These are currently the most advanced, sophisticated yarns on the market 
Logically, each model of artificial grass has its own characteristics. For each of the models in our range, all the previously mentioned aspects have been specified. In addition to this, a very handy product search engine has been developed to make the whole selection process much easier for clients. The client can easily find the artificial grass model that best suits personal needs or particular preferences in a very precise way, by simply restricting the search parameters to solely filter the models that meet the criteria the client enters
 
CAUTION:
  • When searching in the search engine, only one option or value must be selected for the criteria relevant to the client. It is not necessary to select each criterion
  • The "level of", "degree of" and "term of guarantee" search criteria are of the "minimum value" type. This means that the search will be restricted to those products whose criterion value is the selected one, or higher. For example, if you select"7 years" for the " Warranty period", the search will be restricted to those models whose warranty period is of 7 years or greater
  • Select the level of use according to the following table
TYPICAL USES SUITABLE LEVEL OF USE
 Gardens of apartment block communities, condominium communities, community pools, etc...  Intense, it is going to be stepped on continuously
 Private gardens, swimming pools or any other frequently walked-on area  High, it will be stepped on frequently
 Private gardens, terraces, penthouse apartments, swimming pools or other less frequented areas  Medium, you will step on it just occasionally
 Ornamental, decorative gardens, roundabouts, separators, shop windows, fairs, events, etc...  Low, merely decorative

A system of icons has also been developed to make the process more visual and easier to grasp for clients. Thanks to these useful icons, the specification ( option-value ) of all previously related aspects ( search criteria ) for each of the models in our range is clearly shown. Therefore, each of the possible options or values ​​of each criterion has been assigned an icon that symbolizes said option or value. Below are all the search criteria, options or possible values ​​of each criterion, as well as the icon associated with each option-value
