Renovating Your Outdoor Spaces with Artificial Turf

If your lawn is worn down or you’re just tired of trying to keep up with it, consider remodeling your Virginia, Maryland or DC outdoor space with artificial turf. You can do many things with synthetic grass, and it’ll leave your front and back yards looking neat, tidy and well manicured.

The best part of artificial turf? You don’t have to maintain it! If you’ve never worked with synthetic materials for your lawn you might not be sure where to start. Fortunately, there are many ways you can renovate and improve a space with these materials. 

In this blog post, we’ll describe some of the top ideas for improving your outdoor space with artificial turf. 

Bring Some Nature To Your Balcony

Most balconies are made from hard materials like concrete or tile. If you live in an apartment, it’s even worse. The nearest grass to your outside space might be stories beneath you. With artificial turf, you can add greenery to your private balcony area to remind you of nature. 

Not only does it look great and blend with your balcony plants, but also makes the ground softer. You’ll love walking out onto the balcony barefoot to feel the scratchy softness against the soles of your feet. 

Add Green To Your Concrete 

If you live in a primarily concrete area, it’s difficult to grow natural grass. The concrete stretches inches beneath the dirt and prevents healthy roots from taking shape. Luckily, these spaces don’t have to remain boring and ordinary. 

Adding artificial turf to heavily concreted areas provides an aesthetic touch of nature to the urban environment. The best places to do it are on walkways, driveways, and borders of sidewalks. This allows you to add green to areas that aren’t connected to your irrigation system. 

Rooftop Garden

While rooftop gardens flourish with potted plants, it’s not as easy to get grass to grow. You need several feet of dirt and regular maintenance to keep them healthy. However, this doesn’t mean your rooftop garden needs to be all concrete. 

It’s possible to fill up walkways and open spaces on a roof with artificial turf to make them greener. Adding this touch transports visitors to an isolated piece of nature in an urban environment. It’s the ultimate accent to any rooftop garden. 

Playground Safety

If you have kids and a playground, there’s no good reason to put ugly wood chips beneath it. Not only are wood chips, rubber pieces, and other playground materials unsightly, but they don’t protect nearly as well as artificial grass designed for playgrounds. Wood chips and other traditional ground coverings need to be replaced more often. 

You don’t have to worry about scraped knees on artificial turf because it’s smoother than most playground surfaces. Finally, it looks much better than the alternatives, and you can maintain a lovely green look throughout the space. 

Soft Area For a Pool Patio

Pools can get dangerous. There’s always a “no running” sign for a reason, and it’s because pools are surrounded by wound-inflicting concrete or decking. If you’re fortunate enough to have natural grass around your pool, then you know it’s also not perfect. After a couple of jumps out of the water, mud can transfer from the grass to the pool.

Installing artificial turf around your pool provides a nice soft place for play, relaxation, and entertainment. It won’t get muddy, patchy, or burnt from UV rays.
