With the relatively high cost of the initial purchase and installation of artificial grass in London, it’s only right for any home or business owner looking to invest in the product to do thorough research on the type of artifical turf they’re going to get. Here at London Artificial Gardens, we believe in providing our customers with the best options for their artificial turf to make their decision-making process as easy as possible. In this article, we share the top things we believe one should consider in choosing the type of artificial grass to get in London.
Quality and Budget
These will always top our list of things to consider in choosing your artificial grass. Not all synthetic grass is created equally – some are sturdier while others are meant to be replaced more often. And if it’s something that will be replaced often, how will it affect your budget? It’s no secret that getting quality artificial grass installed in London can be costly, even for a relatively small area. This is why we encourage shopping around and asking for samples. You may not always get it on your first try, but you would eventually find one that works with your budget and doesn’t compromise on quality either along with finding a reputable artificial grass installer to fit the artificial grass for you.
In our book, the material used to create your artificial grass goes hand in hand with quality. Typically, there are three types used to create artificial grass: polypropylene, polyethylene or nylon. It could either be one or a mix of them. Nylon is the most resilient out of the three, but just because it’s resilient doesn’t mean it’s the best choice for you. It might not emit heat as much as polypropylene or polyethylene, but it’s also not the softest, which may turn off those who want the soft natural grass feel to their synthetic turf. Since the material from which artificial turf is made isn’t the only thing to consider, we will bring up the next point of consideration: Purpose.
One might think that the purpose of getting fake grass is simple – it will replace real grass on your lawn. However, it’s not as simple as that. Do you need it as an easily-maintained patch of grass for your dog to do their business on? Do you need for its aesthetic appeal – to give the appearance of a well-kept garden and up your property’s landscape appeal? Do you intend to play sports on it? Or perhaps you don’t really need it for your home but for your commercial space?
Depending on where and for what purpose you intend to use the artificial grass, the type or model of artificial grass we would recommend will vary. For pet owners, we would recommend the P.U backed model, which has polyurethane backing and helps reduce odor from dog urine. For those who want a completely natural grass look, we’d offer them the London 35 because of how realistic it looks. To those who own commercial spaces, we’d point them to the London 30 for its vibrant color ideal for highlighting their shop windows. Comparing samples and compromising on some less important (for you) features help since when it comes to artificial grass, there isn’t usually a one-size-fits-all model.
