FACTS ABOUT ARTIFICIAL GRASS
Green-R Turf possesses the most up to date knowledge and facts about modern artificial grass products. The following are useful facts about significant aspects of artificial grass, including yarn technology, style, and installation.
YARN TECHNOLOGY AND EVOLUTION
The early beginnings of artificial grass can be rooted back to the use of mini fibrillated tapes. These tapes were unforgiving fibers with no spine, causing them to tear easily. Now, modern artificial grass yarns are extruded from melted polypropylene and polyethylene pellets. The extrusion process creates a film of long yarns that are cut into individual yarns. Modern yarns are extruded in different shapes for both resilience and memory. Green-R Turf maintains only the highest quality yarns in the industry.
USE THE APPROPRIATE STYLE
Several artificial grass applications are installed with generic and unsuitable turf styles, assuming that all turf is similar or that there are a limited variety of products. Low activity regions need to assess density, quality, and aesthetics whereas mid-level activity and higher should have a high-density thatch product installed. Such a product significantly recovers better during grooming and activity, as well as a high quality yarn composition.
Note that not all installations are the same. Great aesthetics and long product life are reflective of quality installation. This includes the sculpting of grass surfaces, assessment of surface edges, and how the grass is secured.
