Polyethylene helps in making the artificial turf gentle on the skin while keeping it long-lasting. Polypropylene helps in making it extremely durable and resilient.

Polyethylene is also generally used in the production of plastic bottles, plastic bags, etc. It is available in a solid form which is then melted and combined with colors and other chemicals which provide durability, UV resistance, etc. On the other hand, thin nylon sheets are used in the production of grass blades. These thin nylon sheets are extruded via molds to create fine fibers with a round or an oval cross-section.

It should be kept in mind that the area where you are laying the artificial turf should be smooth and leveled out, as even as possible, before even thinking of laying down the fake turf. One needs to make completely sure that the area where artificial grass is being installed does not have any stones, bumps, or lumps that might make the new garden look uneven later on, as this can become quite difficult to handle once the new turf is in place. This type of preliminary work will not only make the setting of artificial grass easier but will also help with drainage while making your lawn appealing. The first thing to consider while choosing the synthetic turf for your home is to decide on the amount of foot traffic the area would receive where you're planning on putting down the fake turf. If you have a home full of kids and pets who just love playing outdoors, choose a synthetic turf with high durability. If you opt for the one that's less durable, it won't be able to bear the heavy foot traffic load hence might wear out rather quickly. Just note that picking out turf with high durability can make you compromise on comfort, but quality turfs have a non-abrasive and soft texture nevertheless.

The ideal pile height for your lawn is 30-37mm; this range will help in keeping your artificial lawn looking natural. If you want to place some furniture items or décor items on your lawn, go for artificial turf with a shorter pile height as it provides better sustainability options.
