If you are purchasing artificial grass from somewhere that has an online store, they usually have a tool online that will allow you to put in the amount of grass you would need for your transformation, so you can pre-empt how much it will cost you for that range. 


This is a great tool to use, especially when working with a budget because if you select a range you like, you can figure out how much it will cost for your garden project. From here you can see whether you have the ability to go for a more premium grass or if you’ll have to compromise on the range. 


Ordering Samples


To start with, you’ll need to choose the grass you’re wanting. To do that,  ordering samples is the best way to determine the best grass for you. This way you can get a true representation of colour, feel, and how it will look in your garden. 


When ordering samples you may notice that with some ranges, there is not a significant difference between a lower cost range and a range that is slightly more expensive. 


When ordering with Grass Direct, what you should find is that all of our artificial grass ranges are amazing quality. What you will find is that the higher priced the range, the softer, denser or more realistic the grass will be. But all of our grass ranges are highly durable, comfortable underfoot and look realistic to the naked eye. 


So regardless of which range you opt for, high or low cost, you won’t be disappointed, and your lawn will stand the test of time.
