02 Sep Artificial Grass to Suit Your Budget
When it comes to giving your garden, patio or balcony a makeover with artificial grass, your budget is one of the biggest deciding factors on which synthetic turf product you choose. It’s important to remember that not all fake grass is created equal – there’s a whole world out there with different varieties that change depending on the quality, resilience, pile height, colour, density, and what you plan to use it for. All of these factors affect the cost of the product.
Being one of the largest suppliers of artificial grass in Southern Africa, you can be guaranteed that we will have a product that suits your budget. Easigrass pile heights (more on that below) range from 10mm in our budget range, up to 38mm in our most luxurious option. As you go up the range, the density of the grass also increases, which provides extra comfort and cushioning under foot.
What is pile height?
Pile height is the measured height (in millimetres) from the carpet or artificial grass backing to the top of the surface fibres. Depending on the purposes and uses of your outdoor space, different pile heights can be useful in different settings. For example, a high pile height will have a luxurious soft look, and would do well in a garden setting. A short pile height is ideal for play areas, sport applications and other high footfall traffic areas.
