Choosing Artificial Grass
Of course, artificial grass doesn’t just come in one form. Here at Artificial Grass Sheffield, we provide artificial grass of several types, sizes and functions for our customers here in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and the surrounding area. We even have artificial grass for dogs! If you’re looking to buy artificial grass, you can’t go wrong tapping us up to be your artificial grass supplier and installer. The cost of turf is always something we have on our mind when offering the best artificial grass. We sell synthetic grass and a whole variety of options. Check out some of those options below for more information to help you in choosing the best artificial grass for your needs.
Pile Height, Thickness and Grass Weight
The length of artificial grass pile means a lot when it comes to artificial grass options. Our supply services provide a complete range. The minimum height or thickness is 16mm and the maximum is 42mm. Pile height is a term that refers to the length of individual tufted grass strands which compose the artificial turf. Grass weight, or grammes per metre square, relates to how many strands there are in a square meter but also takes account of the height. So you will generally see a higher number for this on longer, higher quality artificial grasses. Artificial grass allows you to set your lawn’s pile height and pile depth rather than have it determined by a lawnmower. Lawnmowers tend to do an uneven job and can leave unsightly patches. With Artificial Grass Sheffield, you have complete control over the pile height and pile depth when you choose the grass for your artificial lawn.
Fake grass colour
When shopping for sod to lay a natural lawn, you often rely on the pictures shown on the grass seed box to know what colour the grass will be. Sometimes it actually turns out to be this colour, other times it does not. With us at Artificial Grass Sheffield, the colour options are wide and subtle with a guarantee that the colour you order is the colour you will actually get. The options when it comes to artificial turf are truly vast. A growing number of higher end grasses include sandy-brown thatch to give a really realistic effect to your fake grass. If you have a certain shade of green in mind – or even want to think a bit more creatively – colours can be ordered to suit your particular needs and colour scheme.
Artificial grass texture
Each year whilst the industry progresses, artificial grass becomes more and more difficult to distinguish from natural grass. This speaks to the ever increasing quality of the products and services on offer here at Artificial Grass Sheffield. In addition to colour and height, our range includes a wide range of texture options for your artificial turf. Not only can the eye not tell the difference, oftentimes not even touch can. We have thinner, thicker, smoother and rougher artificial blade and mat options for you to choose from. Typically fake grass is made from three different materials: Polypropylene, Polyethylene or Nylon. Polypropylene is the cheapest option and one we tend not to recommend unless its for small less conspicuous areas. Polyethylene artificial grass is a good mid range option which looks good and is hard wearing. Nylon fake grass is the most durable option and best able to cope with the elements and much wear from pets and children.

Artificial grass for dogs
We have a plethora of specialised dog options as well, mostly nylon based with a mid pile height. We recommend not going for the longest depth to make picking up your pooches business a little easier, certainly not higher than 40mm. If you have a muddy pawed canine companion but worry about maintaining artificial turf, worry no more! At Artificial Grass Sheffield we provide artificial grass solutions made specifically for your four-legged friend. When installed correctly fake grass will allow rain to drain away efficiently, so no puddles or potential mud baths. Artificial grass options are simply much cleaner and eliminate almost all of the unpleasantness of mud, dirty paws and the other downsides of having your dog play around in natural grass. These artificial grass rolls are easy to clean and maintain, just use a special cleaning material. If you’re worried about artificial grass cost, it becomes more affordable each year! We’re sure to have an option that suits your budget, which makes choosing the right artificial grass a breeze!
