Artificial Grass Turf
Types of Artificial Grass
When you select artificial grass from Greatmats, you receive a handy alternative to natural turf. Our artificial turf looks and feels like the real thing, but it doesn’t require the maintenance work and ongoing cost of taking care of a natural lawn.

- Reduce weeding, mowing, watering, and aerating
- Great for small or large landscapes
- Drains quickly after a rainstorm
- Comfortable under bare feet with no weeds
- Visual appealing look and feel
- Realistic look for a residential yard

Artificial Turf Use CasesSynthetic grass allows many different kinds of activities, including:
Indoor and Outdoor Artificial GrassIndoor sports turf surfaces for fitness and workout facilities most often choose turf with a foam or rubber backing for increased padding. It goes directly over a concrete floor or other hard, flat surfaces. You could even use turf for a garage floor to make an indoor putting green or soccer practice area.
Outdoor turf rolls cover large spaces quickly and provide a safe playing surface that can withstand any kind of weather or foot traffic with far better wear results than natural blades of grass. Use artificial turf mats in golf areas to practice your swing or putt.
Artificial Grass Q&A
What is the best pile height for artificial grass?The best artificial turf pile height depends on the purpose the turf will be used for. Shorter pile heights work well for golf, for a pet area, or for many sports. Longer blade heights work well for commercial and residential lawns, poolside areas, and rooftop decks where furniture might be used.
How long does artificial turf last?Synthetic grass lifespan will depend on a variety of factors, including the amount of traffic and use types. Most of our turf products are backed by an 8-year manufacturer warranty, providing a great value. High-quality turf options have an expected lifespan of 15-20 years. This will create a smart long-term investment. Greatmats can assist customers in choosing the correct quality of turf for their installations.
