What is Pile Height of Synthetic Turf?

1 Answer

Pile height is the height of the synthetic turf blade in inches from the backing to the tip. In specifications, the pile height can be given in fractions of an inch, for example, 3/4'', or in decimal fractions of an inch, for example, 2.625 inches. Synthetic turf pile height ranges from 0.5 inches for gold putting greens to 2.625 for landscape application. Longer, thicker grass looks more lush and natural.

Be honest, I think once installed, it is really hard to tell the difference.

When close attention paid and up close, people can tell the pile height difference. However, depending on areas, some states grass tends to be more rusty which lower pile height blends in better, other areas' natural grass could be thicker and more fluffy and higher pile height will look more "realistic".
