Published: 04 February 2023

Buying artificial grass, whether for yourself or as a landscaper purchasing on behalf of a client, is a process of making some simple choices and decisions. Price may be an important factor but advances in materials and manufacture give you the chance to consider a variety of other issues. We stock many different types of artificial grasses within our landscaping and garden range, with a multitude of matters to consider when choosing synthetic grass for a garden – pile height, density, colour, dtex and so on - but the one we will consider here is the ‘blade shape’

Why is blade shape important?

‘Spring back’ refers to ability of the synthetic grass blades to return to an upright position once they have been walked on or flattened by normal garden activity. Some grasses have better capacity to ‘spring back’ with relevant factors including density of the grass and lower curly thatch, the pile height and the dtex of the yarn. All of our artificial grasses are produced with shaped blades for better ‘spring back’ qualities
