The use of synthetic turf is ever increasing, as more homeowners desire the look and feel of always green, low maintenance grass. The cost of all the water, equipment, labor and lawn care chemicals that comes along with that is now larger than money alone. Lush looking artificial grass is much less expensive than the real thing and high quality synthetic turf comes in several price ranges, enabling you to be able to stay within your budget.
Synthetic turf is being installed all over the country, from residential homes to NFL stadiums to horse race tracks to local parks. As the years go by, they are improving this turf so that it looks and feels much more like natural grass. It is also very easy to maintain, unlike real grass which needs to be tended to regularly. By purchasing artificial grass, organizations will save a lot of money—not only from the cost of the grass, but also from the money that they will have for maintenance.
An obvious reason to purchase synthetic turf is because it will save an organization a lot of money, but there are other reasons that it is preferable over natural grass. In certain areas, limited amounts of water can severely damage natural grass, since it needs to be irrigated regularly. Artificial turf does not require any water, but if it is used in sports, some players may ask that the turf be moist before play.
In sports, athletes are known to do serious damage to the fields. Synthetic turf takes the cleats and the heavy wear without all the problems live grass gives to playing fields around the world. Synthetic grass remains suitable for play and television cameras, even after heavy use. Turf that can withstand any weather with little to no damage done, makes fake grass the perfect playing field for athletes, children and dogs. It doesn’t matter if it is installed in the playground or in an NFL stadium, with the non-toxic infill materials synthetic turf is safe and suitable for any application… including your home landscape.
Different Types of Synthetic Turf
When choosing the artificial turf for your home, you will always want to take into consideration the quality and the pile density. The heavier the face weight, the more abuse the fake grass lawn can withstand and the longer it will last. Be careful when choosing which type of synthetic grass to install on your property, as some brands look very cheap. Yes, we know it’s artificial grass, but it doesn’t have to look like shreds of green construction paper glued to a board.
You should know that there are three types of artificial turf:
Polypropylene turf is the least expensive, which makes it the artificial grass the majority of deal-shopping homeowners will choose. Unfortunately this is a poor purchasing decision, as polypropylene turf has a low melting point, and always wears out easier than the other materials you have to choose. This material is used most often on golf courses.
Polyethylene artificial grass is known for its soft texture, life-like looks in a home landscaping installation and is widely used on soccer fields, football fields and landscape design. High quality polyethylene turf is just right for beautifying your yard with the look and feel of that high cost, high maintenance and water guzzling live grass lawn.

Nylon is the strongest artificial turf available. It can withstand high temperatures and weight, and still retain its original shape. This type of sports turf is also used for putting greens because it is durable and creates a perfect environment for practicing your putt as if you were on the greens. It is not used often for landscaping because of the cost and the stiffness of the pile.
