The increasing interest in synthetic turf prompts questions: What types of artificial grass are available, and how to choose the best one? Let’s explore!

Understanding the Types of Artificial Grass



Polyethylene is the preferred material for fake grass, thanks to its versatility and ability to strike an ideal balance between durability, aesthetics, and softness. It not only looks amazing with bright green colors and plenty of textures but also feels softer and more natural than others.

Also, this type of artificial turf will hold up to a lot of use and abuse without beginning to look ragged or worn out. In addition, taking care of polyethylene artificial grass is fairly easy as it only needs to be raked or brushed to ensure that the grass keeps its best shape.


This is not only the cheapest choice but also the least durable types of artificial grass. It will not stand up well to users walking or playing on it. If you prefer durable synthetic grass product, Polypropylene will not be a good choice. Often employed as a thatch layer, polypropylene enhances the realistic appearance of the turf and provides a comfortable foot feel.

What’s more, it cannot bear the high temperatures that Polyethylene does. Thus, if you want to install artificial turf in a very hot area, this may lead to an unnatural-looking lawn.


Synthetic lawns made from various materials serve distinct purposes. Polyethylene stands out as the preferred choice for contact sports fields like soccer, football, and rugby due to its durability. Meanwhile, polypropylene, along with polyethylene, becomes an exceptional option for landscaping grass, making it suitable for both residential and commercial use.

The monofilament grass yarn

With monofilament yarn, it is possible to create different shapes. This allows for creativity in design, with some shapes, such as diamond, proving more resilient and stronger than flatter yarns. Shapes like “C-shaped” or “S-shaped” enhance softness, delivering a comfortable and plush feel. “V-shaped” or “W-shaped” yarns ensure effective resilience of the grass blades, even after withstanding heavy usage.

Our star product Superb, a monofilament artificial grass designed for sports, stands out with high-end 100% PE fibers arranged in a diamond shape, making it the most durable option in today’s sports market.

In landscaping, various specialized yarn shapes are available for realistic artificial lawn. By strategically combining diverse yarn shapes, a balanced performance is achieved, delivering optimal aesthetic appeal and functionality.

The monofilament with a stem

The manufacturing process of the monofilament grass yarn with a stem is more complicated than one more process is needed. The stem in the center of the monofilament grass fiber maintains the synthetic turf surface with good elasticity and can also improve wear resistance.

One typical product of the monofilament with a stem is called the Stemgrass series. Stemgrass is valued for its durability. The turf surface is resilient enough to allow natural ball behavior, give uniform traction and reduce shock to the joints and ankles.

Curly fiber

When yarn is produced for hockey, putting green, a curl is added during the extrusion process. It’s crucial to highlight our FastPro series, featuring 100% PE curly monofilament that ensures compactness and flatness for optimal ball interaction. Player-friendly and offering unparalleled comfort, FastPro stands out as a versatile and high-performance solution.

For garden applications, the curly fiber, usually made of polypropylene, acts as a thatch layer. It adds depth and texture by incorporating shorter, brown-coloured curls among the longer green blades, mimicking the natural inconsistencies of grass and enhancing its authentic appearance.

The fibrillated grass fiber

The fibrillated grass fiber resembles a plastic tying rope, characterized by a mesh-like cross-section. One standout product is the CCGrass YEII series, known for its unique fibrillating structure and excellent playing performance. It’s a preferred choice for tennis courts, padel courts, and more.

A notable product is our Vmax series, designed to provide an exceptional football experience by combining monofilament and fibrillated yarns in one special synthetic turf. Through the resilient V shape monofilament, excellent ball roll is achieved, whilst the split, fibrillated yarn, holds the infill in place, to deliver great performance characteristics.

Pile height


Typically, the choice of pile height depends on your preference and how you plan to use the lawn. For non-contact sports like hockey, tennis, putting green, gate ball, and running track, short pile types of synthetic grass are commonly applied.

In leisure settings, shorter piles are preferred for high-traffic areas, though they may appear less natural than longer alternatives. Shorter fibers excel in specific purposes, such as creating pet-friendly surfaces that protect paws and withstand pet activities.


Longer fibers, as opposed to shorter yarns, are ideal for contact sports like soccer, football, and rugby. For residential or commercial use, if you prioritize appearance and feel, opting for grass with a longer pile is advisable, as it delivers a lush, luxurious aesthetic.



Green is the most common color for various types of artificial grass. However, contrary to common belief, fake turf isn’t uniformly green. Blends of green vary on a spectrum from brighter lime green to darker olive green, encompassing a wide range of shades. The charm of modern artificial landscape turf lies not just in how closely it resembles natural grass but also in its ability to mimic different grass species.

In sports such as soccer, football, and rugby, it is possible to combine different shades of green in one tuft, to create a more natural grass appearance, with emerald, olive, lime and forest being the most common shades.

For sports like hockey, padel, and tennis, the use of diamond blue enhances the contrast of the ball against diverse environments. This color choice not only adds visual appeal but also ensures optimal visibility, contributing to a more engaging and efficient gaming experience.
