ABOUT HEKI WIESENGRAS
Heki Wiesnegras is a short 2mm tall grass mat that can be used in conjunction with all other grass mediums to make a natural blend of grass or as a stand alone product. It is available in 9 different colors so it has a great color range. The mats themselves come in 14cm x 28cm so its the same size mat as the wildgrass comes in.


ADVANTAGES
From what I can tell the advantages of using this grass would include use as a transition between static grass and the taller grasses such as the Heki, Silflor or Noch wildgras. It appears to be about double the height of a good layer of static grass. It can be cut or torn and glued into place the same as the wildgras and also shares the same invisible threads that hold it in place as its thicker counterpart.


DISADVANTAGES
The downside appears to be that unlike its taller cousins from Heki this doesnt stand up as much as I would hope it would. It also carries a great deal of shine to it as static grass does so at least a dull coat would be needed if not painting it a grass color altogether.


CONCLUSION
To me it appears to hold some promise though and I will let you know down the line when I use all the grasses from these "GrassWars" in a hands on comparison.
SUMMARY
Here in part 4 of grass wars we look at something different. This time we look at Heki Wiesengrass which is a short grass mat. Lets see how it checks out shall we.
