How To Choose Artificial Grass Or Artificial Turf And Their Colors

Choosing an artificial grass or artificial turf product may seem overwhelming with the many different types, styles, materials, and sizes from which to choose. You may be wondering if there is a difference between artificial grass and artificial turf. Both are synthetic grass products that simulate natural grass, but there are different levels of quality, look, feel, and performance.

Artificial grass is typically seen at stadiums and fields where professionals train and compete. The individual blades of “grass” are considerably long which provides a level of deepness and cushion to the surface.

Artificial turf has a surface with shorter blades of “grass” and a feel and look that resembles a shallow carpet. It typically provides less cushion, as it is much harder. But you will find the terms are often used interchangeably.

Choosing a color for a school gym or field where athletes will practice and compete in soccer, football, golf, and other high school and collegiate sports may be easy, as you’d likely use the school colors. If a crossfit or other gym where sled drills and other exercises will be practiced is one you’re considering artificial turf or artificial colors for, you can choose one or a number of colors that reflect your style, or, you can stick with a standard paintable green or black.

So many training and performance facilities feature artificial turf. It is an increasingly popular flooring option that provides a low maintenance, affordable and durable surface that works well for a wide variety of physical activities. Just like with many of the flooring options at Greatmats, the artificial turf selection offers something for every price point and type of facility. The best artificial grass and artificial turf on the market are at Greatmats, and the products are available in rolls and interlocking tiles.
