Premium Grass Blades turf has a pile direction just like all turfs, which means that the blades bend slightly in a single direction. Your grass will look the most natural and most attractive when your vantage point is on the side towards which the blades bend. This means that you will generally want the pile direction of your turf to point towards your most-used outdoor area or your house. When installing a front lawn between a house and a street, the grain is often positioned to face the street. When installing an artificial lawn in a backyard, the pile direction is generally towards the house or outdoor living areas. This may sound a little confusing on paper, but it is easy to see the grain and determine the preferred direction when you are looking at your Premium Grass Blade’s turf prior to installation. When laying your turf out, line up your roll of synthetic grass to a corner or straight edge if possible.
