Artificial turf grass / synthetic turf grass comes in an almost endless variety of choices.  If Home Turf doesn’t offer a type of artificial grass you like, then no one does, and you’re very hard to please!  They may all look like “green grass” to the untrained eye but as experts in the San Diego artificial turf business we see very distinct differences and can point them out to you. 

Synthetic turf grass is manufactured in so many different forms for several reasons.  One reason is to create a turf product that is visually appealing to everyone.  Since not all of us have the same opinion, artificial turf fibers come in many colors, shades, mixtures, textures, or if you will, ‘flavors.’  Just as they make Coke and Pepsi, Sprite and 7 Up, Bud Light and Miller Light, you get the picture – they make artificial turf to visually please just about anyone.  Besides the visual aspect, artificial turf grass must often also serve a specific purpose.  Sometimes function is more important than form.  For pets, for example, there are certain varieties of artificial turf that are better suited to the rough wear and tear that a dog can dish out (and drainage requirements) but they may not be your favorite looking varieties. 

Function over form is sometimes the rule.  Another example might be for playground artificial turf.  In this application you might consider a thinner and less expensive artificial grass product and spend the savings on an underlying shock pad for safety.  Artificial turf products are similar to carpet in many ways.  Synthetic turf products are rated by what is called “face weight.”  Artificial turf “face weight” refers to the weight of artificial grass fibers (not including the turf backing) per square yard of an artificial turf grass product.  San Diego Home Turf sells and installs the thickest and most plush synthetic turf lawn products on the market.

This polyethylene thatch layer is thicker than most artificial turf with nylon thatch.

Artificial Turf # 8 – Home Turf – Nylon Putting Green

Nylon Putting greean synthetic

Home turf offers another artificial turf grass putting gren surface made of poly proplyene which requires regular maintenance (rolling with a weighted sod roller to keep turf fibers down). This variety is perfect for the homeowner who doesn’t want to chip the ball onto the putting green surface from more than ten feet away. For chipping from larger distances, we recommend our taller variety. This product has a 38 oz. face weight but shouldn’t be compared with artificial turf grass lawn or putting green fringe turf grass varieties. This very dense turf product is .56” tall.
