What is Artificial Grass?
Artificial grass is a synthetic material made from recycled tires and plastic bottles, then dyed green to resemble the real thing. This material was first used in sporting arenas where regular grass would become worn out or detrimental to gameplay. Now, fake grass is common for commercial and residential lawns.
How Does Artificial Grass Help?
Artificial grass does not require watering, mowing, or fertilizing. It can save a homeowner on lawn care costs and help conserve water, especially in drought-prone climates.

Where to Place Turf Installation
If you plan to remodel your home or landscape, consider placing artificial grass for a decorative and unique look. Here are seven places to put turf.
1) Play Areas
The lawn around playsets and playhouses can wear out when children run and roll about on the grass. Artificial turf can provide a soft surface and withstand a large amount of foot traffic.
2) Backyard Putting Greens
People who love golf yet can’t get out to the greens daily can install a putting green in their yard. They can practice their swings and have a relaxing time while still staying at home.
3) Pet Areas
Artificial grass is an excellent alternative to natural grass for people with pets that love to dig. It withstands pet claws, and you can easily clean it after your pet relieves him or herself. There is even special artificial turf for pets and odor-eliminator products for pet areas.
4) Roofs and Balconies
If you have a balcony or use a roof as recreational space, you can remodel the surface with artificial turf. You won’t have to water it, which could create leaks in the roof, and it acts as a rug to make a comfortable waking surface on balconies.
5) Pool Areas
Constantly cleaning the mowed clippings out of the pool water just increases your work. With turf installation, you won’t have to worry about the grass getting into the pool while having a walking surface that doesn’t become slippery when wet.
6) Around Pavers
Have a garden path or sidewalk? Consider placing artificial turf between the paving stones. It helps break up the appearance of cement and rock to provide a more natural look.
7) Side yards
You may have a side yard to your home that is very narrow, shady due to fence walls, and difficult to mow. Artificial turf can make the side yard beautiful while cutting down on maintenance work.
