Beyond giving you the gorgeous lawn you’ve always wished for, artificial grass has other talents. For example, you can use it to cover patios, decks, and walkways around your property. You can install artificial grass right over concrete and other hard surfaces. And there are a lot of great reasons to do that.
If you have a small patio, covering the entire area with artificial turf can transform the ambiance into that of a compact, well-kept yard. If your lawn is extremely small, you can easily extend it by installing artificial grass on your patio and deck. Your yard will appear larger, and you’ll have more grassy play space year round.
Faux grass not only looks like the real thing, it feels pretty much like the real thing underfoot – thick and luxurious. Unlike the real thing, though, it’s a breeze to maintain. You can use a small leaf blower to remove bits of debris or blow dust and dirt off your patio. Less work equals more fun time, and with artificial grass your patio is always party-ready.
Many folks who live in a high rise apartment or condo miss not having a lawn. But you can! Artificial grass grows anywhere. Installing it on your deck or balcony gives you that grassy experience you crave. It’s totally practical, too. Fake grass can be cut to precisely fit around deck posts, wall anomalies, large pieces of statuary, or plant boxes. Or you can create a grassy area rug instead of covering the entire deck.
You can even achieve a truly distinctive look by using different colors and textures of artificial turf to create patterns and designs.
With artificial grass on your deck, you can say goodbye to splinters. And to slimy surfaces, mold, and mildew that can develop on wet wood. Fake grass drains and dries quickly.
Another deck that can benefit from artificial grass is the one surrounding your pool. Whereas slipping on wet concrete is a major concern with most pool decks, faux grass is safer. Synthetic turf doesn’t get slippery when wet or suffer damage from pool chemicals. And it feels so much cooler and softer underfoot.
Not only that, it helps keep your pool cleaner, capturing debris and dirt that otherwise get tracked into the pool. That inevitable mess can clog your filter and it increases maintenance time. We know you’d rather be swimming or playing Marco Polo with the kids. We also know you’ll love how much prettier your pool surround looks – and the way it blends beautifully with the rest of your landscape – once you’ve converted to artificial grass.
Since artificial grass grows consistently lush and vibrant at any elevation, it is ideal for rooftop gardens, too. What a stunning way to turn a flat roof or rooftop deck into a space that is both practical and pretty. You can create a lawn, bocce ball court, custom putting green . . . whatever fits your style and space. Artificial grass is much lighter than natural grass, and our tile installation system ensures superior drainage. A grassy roof can actually help keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter, too.
All you need is a little furniture and some containers filled with tall grasses, flowers, veggies, and herbs, and you’ve added another room to your square footage. Nice work!
Artificial grass enhances the look and livability of patios and decks, with miniscule investment of time, effort, or money. It can increase your home’s curb appeal and its future resale value. And for all of you pet-lovers out there, all our Heavenly Greens synthetic turf products are pet-friendly.
