First produced in the 1960s for use on athletic fields, today, artificial turf is all the rage for elevating outdoor spaces in residential and commercial markets. This comes as no surprise as artificial turf brings many benefits to the table — it's nearly maintenance-free, looks realistic, and is long-lasting, to name a few. 

In this article, we'll look at artificial turf's incredible benefits, the different types, and innovative ways to incorporate them into your designs

ARTIFICIAL TURF TYPES

Artificial turf has come a long way since the 1960s. Over the decades, it has evolved from a plastic-like nonrealistic product to a realistic-looking, luxurious outdoor addition. Let's take a look at the three types of artificial turf. 

Nylon Artificial Grass 

While artificial grass made from nylon is considered the longest-lasting and most durable, its price is higher than other options that offer a similar look. Nylon works great in high-traffic areas, but as the stiffest artificial grass, it's best not to use it in spaces where pets or kids play. For many, this moves nylon to the back of the options line.

Polypropylene Artificial Grass

Sure, polypropylene comes in at the lowest artificial grass price point, but it offers the least durability. This style of artificial grass works best in non-high-traffic areas. 

Polyethylene Artificial Grass

Polyethylene artificial grass provides a realistic texture and look. It's a captivating choice for a mid-range artificial lawn. Its softness makes it an excellent option for play areas and other portions of your yard where family and guests walk barefoot.

Our Evergrass™ Emerald Green Turf 110, made from polyethylene, delivers an alluring color year-round to residential or commercial spaces. Equipped with BioLuxe Worry-Proof Technology, this turf provides a chemical and pesticide-free lawn without the need to water. It feels great underfoot and has no seasonal die-offs, bare spots, or damaged areas from pets.

ARTIFICIAL TURF BENEFITS 

A leading benefit of artificial turf is it is nearly maintenance-free. Never again will you find yourself performing regular yard duties like fertilizing and mowing. 

Today's artificial grass looks much more realistic than the artificial grass of a bygone era. Some varieties of artificial turf even add yellow color blades to mimic thatch.

Homeowners love the fact that artificial turf is evergreen. This means you can have your lawn the shade of green you prefer year-round. All you need to do is select the color and enjoy how it elevates your outdoor space.

Artificial turf requires no watering. This saves you time as you have one less chore to perform, and it reduces your water bill.

Finally, artificial turf is long-lasting. Well-maintained turf of high quality can last up to 20 years or longer.
