There have been great improvements in the general quality and appearance of artificial grass over the last decade. That said, there will always be inferior synthetic turf products on the market as the market demands lower prices and more affordable solutions.
While significantly cheaper artificial grass products may meet some of the benchmarks for an acceptable product, there are a few things to take into consideration.
Many artificial grass suppliers in Perth, often unknowingly, have an exclusive range of synthetic turf. This is because, compared to our smaller population, there are many manufacturers internationally. Moreover, within each factory is a vast range of options for manufacture and therefore an enormous amount of combinations that make each range of turf different from the next.
Unlike our overseas counterparts, in Australia we place little emphasis on the branding of an artificial grass product. Instead we often compare unbranded synthetic turf products to one another with an over-simplified model, namely the height of the pile.
