Be Flexible on Budget

When it comes to your budget for your new lawn, it is usually best to have as much flexibility as you can. You won't necessarily have to spend more than you originally hoped, but it can pay to be open to the idea.

The long lifespan of fake grass means that, over time, it does not work out as expensive as it might seem, and unless you want to pay all over again you will want to make sure you choose a style and quality you are happy with in the long run. If spending more will get you a much more realistic orgenerally better-looking grade of artificial turf, it might be worth paying the extra.

Go for a Natural Look

The vast majority of people who install an artificial lawn don't want it to actually look like fake grass - they want it to look like the real thing. For this reason, it is probably best to aim for the most natural-looking grass you can get. 

This is not just a matter of quality, though it is true that higher-quality grasses look nearly indistinguishable from the real thing while cheaper ones might not. It is also down to style.

Choosing a grass with uneven blade lengths or which looks like it has just started to get shaggy but not enough to require mowing is often the best way of imitating realism. However, if you want a close-clipped grass that looks like you are always keeping it freshly mown, there is nothing wrong with that either.
