How to Choose the Right Artificial Grass for Commercial and Public Spaces

January 17, 2024

Artificial grass has risen in popularity for commercial and public spaces over the years. Pubs, restaurants, office buildings, playgrounds, hotels and theme parks are just some of the commercial and public spaces utilising artificial grass. 

Why is artificial grass popular in commercial and public spaces?

Artificial grass is popular in commercial and public spaces due to being able to withstand heavy footfall, its low maintenance properties of artificial grass help businesses save money on costly maintenance costs that would come with natural grass.

Unlike natural grass, artificial grass doesn’t get ruined by weather conditions meaning it’ll stay green and look great all year round without timely and costly maintenance. It can help keep the commercial area look tidier and more welcoming, no mud being walked into the building. 

How to choose the right artificial grass for commercial areas

Artificial grass in public areas needs to be able to withstand high footfall, therefore choosing artificial grass for commercial areas is different from choosing grass for your home. Something to consider when buying commercial artificial grass, include:

Artificial grass height

If you’re just using the artificial grass for decoration in commercial areas, then the pile height won’t matter – however if it isn’t for decorative purposes then you’ll need to carefully select the right one.

Generally, artificial grass with a shortened pile height will wear better than a longer one, especially in heavy foot traffic areas. A pile height of between 22mm and 32mm will offer the illusion of  freshly cut grass. 

Artificial grass density

The density of the artificial grass fibres is important. The denser the fibres of the grass, the better they will support each other to stay in an upright position. For commercial areas, we recommended choosing an artificial grass with a pile density of between 16,000 and 18,000 per square metre – this helps it last longer in commercial areas. The more stitches per square metre the more expensive the artificial grass will be, however investing in a good quality product right from the start will mean it will last longer.

Artificial grass quality 

When investing in artificial grass for a commercial or public area, investing in a good quality artificial grass will help it stay looking great even with lots of use. Choosing a reputable supplier will ensure that you are getting a quality product that will stand the test of time.

Work with an expert

Artificial grass is an investment, which is why it is important to work with an expert to ensure you are receiving the best quality grass that will last.

It is also important to ensure you maintain your artificial grass properly to protect your investment and ensure you don’t end up costing yourself more money by having to replace or repair your artificial grass.
