Artificial Grass Terminology

What is your question?


Infill refers to the material placed between the artificial grass blades to provide stability, support, and resilience. Common infill materials include silica sand, crumb rubber, and eco-friendly alternatives like cork or coconut fibers. It helps the turf fibers stand upright, enhances performance, and improves drainage.



The SKU names are just based off the series the turf belongs to. Please see our detailed product pages for the full list of specs!

There are several ways of making artificial grass products, the most popular methods is “tufting” and most of our turf products are tufted. We also use “knitted” technology to make turf products and such method provide a fully permeated backing and hence named “flo-rite-through”. However, due to the high cost of such production and size limitations, we have not been actively prosecuting knitted products in recent years. All our our tufted turf products have great drainage capacities, on average, our artificial grass product can drain 50-100 inches per hour which can handle more than 5 times of the downpour from a category 5 hurricane.

Geotextile is an alternative name for artificial grass backings, it is more of general term referring to textile sheeting type which can be made of many different type of materials. In artificial turf industry, we tend to be more specific by simply naming the materials of such geotextile, foe an example namely polypropylene.

Silica sands are measured by mesh sizes, the bigger the mesh number the smaller of the sands in diameters individually. By that said, the #60 mesh sands are finer than #30 by half of the particle size. We recommend to use different sized sands for different type of artificial grass applications. In general, #16-20 mesh sands to be used for most landscape turf products, either #30 or #60 mesh sands to be used for putting greens as the fibers on putting green products are very tight and the smaller the particles the easiler to be brushed in.

for a regularly used yard with Grown adults what would be best 20/30 infill or 30/65. I ordered 20/30 and got 30/65 from another company so It would be good to know if I should return or keep.

The main benefit of lower faceweight is the cost: the lower the faceweight, the less materials being used and the cost will be relatively lower. On the other hand, one of the key goals of manufacturing artificial grass is to make it as realistic as possible, by that said, it is not necessarily true that the heavier the faceweight, the better the product: the better product should be a perfect combination of decent faceweight and realistic.

Our shockpad for artificial grass application is made of combination of PE (Polypropylene) and POE (Polyolefin elastomers) through a forming process. So the product looks like “foam” with drainage cutouts and offer a great way to provide cushioning for turf. Our shockpad products come in with different roll sizes with a set width of 5’ at 10’, 25’ and 200’ length that suitable for various sized applications.

Polypropylene and Nylon resins are both raw materials can be used for making artificial grass. I wouldn’t make comments on the differences between these two materials themselves here, rather, I will briefly explain the differences of the artificial grass products made by Polypropylene and Nylon:

1. Products made of Polypropylene are bit softer and more flexible and less expensive in both raw materials cost and manufacturing cost. 

2. Products made of Nylon are more durable, and resist much higher heat with higher cost on both raw materials and manufacturing. Besides being hard/coarse which make it less acceptable to substitute real grass, another main advantage of Nylon turf is that the blades are porous which means colors and smells can be absorbed with no way to remove.
