To make the best artificial grass – you need the best ingredients…
We know in our own experience of selling artificial grass that most buyers of artificial grass (even national landscape contractors) buy artificial grass based solely on either the price or aesthetic and tactile properties of a product with little or no thought put into the quality of the ingredients making the product.
Ingredient quality is the most fundamentally important factor in an artificial grass product’s life span and it effects everything from the way the grass stands up to it’s ability to hold its original colour for as long as possible.
For those of you who regularly read our blog you will be familiar with an analogy we have used in the past about disposable plastic cups – the sort you might get at children’s birthday parties or from office water coolers. A good test of the quality of the plastic in the cup is to squeeze it – a low quality cup will split whereas a higher quality cup will be able to flex repeatedly without any damage to the cup.
Another analogy is to think about packaging. If you have ever seen packaging (esp detergent bottles or similar) washed up on a beach you will be able to recall how different product packaging weathers / degrades differently from being in the sea.
