It should be pointed out that there is a difference between synthetic grass manufacturers and synthetic grass distributors. This will probably be quite apparent to some people who are in the know in the industry but to the average consumer it is information that is not immediately obvious.

Just because a company calls itself a synthetic grass company or an artificial turf company does not necessarily mean that they manufacture the product that they are selling. As a distributor they simply act as a retail agency for the manufacturer supplying sales staff and, in most cases, installation experts to lay the synthetic grass for you. It also means that you will be charged a higher price than if you bought the artificial grass wholesale direct from the manufacturer.

When you buy your synthetic grass you will want to be confident that if there are problems or queries that you want answered that the company that you originally deal with will be able to answer your questions. The after sale service of small independent distribution companies is unlikely going to be as thorough as that of the larger company. Indeed, there is no guarantee that the smaller company is going to be around after supplying you with your grass.

What you might like to be on the look out for is a synthetic grass company that announces itself as a producer and distributor or a manufacturer and distributor. Personally, I would feel a lot more comfortable dealing with a company that is involved from the first strand of production to the last stage of installation of the synthetic grass that they sell me. There will certainly be a lot more invested interest on whether or not the product meets my needs.

It may be difficult to find a local synthetic grass manufacturer and this is the obvious reason that synthetic grass distributors are so common. It would then be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the names of some of the top synthetic turf manufacturers so that you can be confident that the grass comes from a well-known and reputable company.
