What is the best thickness for artificial grass?
What is pile height?
Pile height is the length of the blade, measured from the backing to the tip. It is expressed in millimeters (mm) and ranges from less than 10 millimeters to over 50 millimeters. For lawns and gardens, stake heights between 25mm and 40mm are most common.
Finding the right pile height for your project depends on the intended use. How many people do you expect to walk? For example, contact sports such as football or rugby require artificial grass solutions that are different from untrained home lawns. Aesthetics can also be a game changer: what should your artificial grass look like? Some people prefer short, neat grass, while others want long, lush artificial grass.
Pile height: 20 mm or less
When there are pets and children around, most people opt for a lower pile height. It makes cleaning easier, so you can prevent your dog or cat from going to war with your garden — and win. Short artificial grass also looks neater. That's why decorative designs can be found in such piles of high schools. Last but not least, certain sports, such as padel and tennis, are subject to strict infrastructure rules that require short grass.
Pile height: between 20 mm and 30 mm
The longer the grass, the more realistic your artificial landscape project will look. On the other hand, longer lawns or patios make removing dirt or leaves slightly time-consuming. If you want to combine the best of both worlds, 20mm to 30mm is your pile height. Your lawn looks like it's just been mowed, and with the right bulk density, it should be resilient enough to handle a lot of foot traffic.
Pile height: between 30 mm and 40 mm
This length is ideal if you want perfect realism. Also, it will increase the softness of artificial grass. Kids will love playing on it while enjoying the tickling of the blades of grass between their toes. No wonder 30mm pile heights are preferred for most professional landscaping projects. Thanks to technological advancements, this slightly longer artificial grass remains resilient all year round.
Pile height: 40 mm or more
For those who like artificial grass that looks lush, luxurious and even a little wild, tall blades will do the trick. Especially if you're expecting limited foot traffic, this stack height can be very eye-catching. However, even with higher pedestrian traffic, long artificial grass should not be ruled out. Choose a product with the best performance and the right amount of filling and your blade will be very resilient.
