Multidirectional Artificial grass, what is it?

A new wave is coming over the artificial grass industry. However, this new revolutionary product can be hard to come by (and quite expensive). Not many companies are stocking multidirectional artificial grass just yet, but in no time, all grasses will become multidirectional. What do we mean by this and why is it so much better than alternatives? Along with whether it’s worth paying the premium for it.

Let’s first have a look at what a multidirectional artificial grass is. It is simple, a multidirectional grass is one where the fibres are facing all directions, this mimics natural grass a lot better, and looks a lot nicer from all angles. Compared with normal artificial grass where all the fibres are pointing the same way. This not only looks very fake but from the back, it doesn’t look as nice, so you have to ensure you install it facing the right way.

While with a multidirectional grass still has the best way to lay it. It still looks good from all angles, making it better specifically for a front garden where deciding if you want the nice side facing the road or you. With multi it doesn’t matter. It looks good both ways.

The price increase is simply because it takes a lot more to manufacture. It is no longer as simple as setting the fibres all in the same, to give it a less uniform more natural look, each fibre needs to be placed facing different directions making the whole process a bit longer and harder. This simply makes the product cost more to produce than other artificial grasses.

let’s look at some examples comparing a multidirectional grass to a non-multidirectional one.

While you can still see the direction of the grass on the multidirectional grass, it’s a lot less noticeable when compared to the other standard grass. To make this comparison even better we did go out of our way to choose our best standard direction grass, we didn’t want to use a cheaper more budget grass as the difference is more obvious, but even in these two premium artificial grasses, the difference is noticeable.

Is multidirectional worth the extra money?

The simple answer is it depends. Everyone has different needs with their garden. If you want that premium, natural look to your lawn go for the Natural 42mm or Chatsworth 30mm as they are both multi-directional. However, the cheaper direction grass is perfectly okay and is a great option if you want artificial grass, but want to make it cheaper.

Ultimately the decision is up to you. However, now you should be able to make a more informed decision when choosing your perfect artificial grass. For a garden that sees a lot of wear, we would always say to go for a cheaper option as they tend to be a bit stronger and with them being a bit cheaper, heavy use will be less of an issue. If it’s used a lot, the lifespan will decrease so why pay for premium grass? Get in touch and get your dream garden.
