Artificial grass technology has made significant strides in mimicking the natural aesthetics and functionality of real turf. One key element that enhances the realism and utility of artificial grass is the shape of its blades. Each blade shape is designed to offer specific benefits that cater to varying needs ranging from residential landscaping to sports fields. In this blog, we’ll delve into why the design of grass blade shapes used in grasses like Huracan, Corvette, Diablo, and others, is crucial for the performance of artificial grass.

The blade shape of artificial grass impacts several key factors: durability, aesthetics, feel, and functionality. A well-chosen blade shape can drastically improve the resilience of the turf against wear and tear, ensure that the grass maintains its upright position, and even influence how soft the grass feels underfoot. For instance, blade shapes designed with a robust structure like the ‘C’, ‘D’, and ‘Diamond’ shapes found in Corvette and Mustang varieties resist flattening and retain their form even under heavy foot traffic.
Blade Shapes Explained
  • Wave Shape (Huracan, Huracan Evolve, Diablo, Diablo Evolve): This shape enhances the flexibility and resilience of the blades, allowing them to bounce back after being compressed. This makes it ideal for areas with high foot traffic or play areas for children and pets.
  • C, D, and Diamond Shape (Corvette, Lincoln, Mustang): These shapes are engineered to increase the durability and upright nature of the blades. The ‘D’ shape, for instance, provides a spine at the back of the blade which helps in maintaining its vertical stance, making it suitable for landscaping and lawns that see frequent use.
  • Micro-Nerve Shape (Senna, Alpina, Puma, Maximus Evolve): This innovative design features micro nerves along the blades, which not only adds to the realism by mimicking the minute details of natural grass but also aids in durability and resilience.
  • Propeller Shape (Blitz): With a unique twist to each blade, the propeller shape enhances the ability of the turf to withstand pressure while also aiding in better water and nutrient distribution across the turf.
  • S Shape (Mulsanne): The S shape allows for optimal light reflection, which reduces the sheen that is sometimes visible on artificial turf, thereby enhancing its natural look.
