Synthetic grass is made very similar to carpet. If you think about it, synthetic grass is really a type of outdoor carpet that lets water drain through. If you have purchased some before you probably noticed, it is described with carpet terminology. “Pile Height” refers to the length of the blade from the backing to surface. Synthetic grass “yarn” is made up of plastic polymers. In fact, a lot of it is produced in carpet factories because of its similarities to carpet.
One of the lesser-known qualities regarding synthetic turf involves noise reduction. Turf is a great sound insulator. Installing synthetic grass is particularly helpful if you live in a noisy area. The turf soaks up noise from traffic and passersby. Some people even go as far as installing green walls to help dampen the noise. What a fantastic idea! Not only do you get the sound reduction benefits, you also have a nice zen space as well. With this in mind, it would be quite easy to turn a back patio into a yoga or meditation studio.
