Thinking about ways to add a little green to your home?
In light of the increasing temperatures, some homeowners have been turning to synthetic grass as a way to maintain the appearance of a healthy lush lawn. While most use it as a natural grass replacement, some are getting more creative and using it in and around their house.
Take a look at some of the following creative ways you can use synthetic grass around your home.
1. Design a backyard putting green
You don’t have to spend money or head to the driving range to work on your swing. You can turn any backyard space into a small putting green for perfecting your skills off the golf course. Look for short-trimmed, sand-filled synthetic turf for easy installation and level putting across the surface. Practicing your chipping and putting 10 minutes each day can knock strokes off your handicap and make you tough to beat on the course.
2. Accent your patio space
Patios don’t always have to have stone, wood or concrete surfaces; they can also have synthetic grass surfaces for a more natural aesthetic.
Whether you live in the city or the suburbs, you can transform your patio into a space that feels like it’s part of the environment. Select between short and tall artificial grass with uniform or varied coloring to complement the natural grass throughout the neighborhood.
Add a few plants and cozy furniture to make you feel more at home with nature.
3. Build a play area for your dog
For homeowners who have more concrete than grass in their backyards, give your pooch a more comfortable place on which to play and rest.
Artificial turf can lay across any surface and transform it into something that looks more natural and inviting. Concrete surfaces chip your dog’s nails and hurt its pads. Because fake grass feels almost like the real thing, your pooch will have a more enjoyable time running over its surface.
You can rinse off synthetic grass with a hose and soapy water for easy cleaning, and you’ll never have to worry about your dog tracking mud indoors.
4. Make an artificial grass and vine wall
If you have a patio wall or a freestanding wall outdoors, cover it with synthetic grass.
You can select an artificial grass with the same green, yellow and brown hues as your natural grass to create the illusion that it extends up the wall. String fake ivy vertically on the wall to mimic real growth, and add other flora for a more natural look.
You can also hang patio lights along the wall and set up a bistro table to create an Italian dinner setting.
5. Bring the outdoors inside
Soccer, baseball and football all take part on the grass.
If your children love to play sports, bring the grass indoors and into their bedrooms. You can cover the floor completely with synthetic turf or place down a grass rug to accent the space. Hang their favorite sports posters on the walls, and decorate with various memorabilia to make their bedrooms look and feel like a stadium. Just make sure to select a synthetic turf that doesn’t contain a sand filling.
Today’s synthetic grass looks identical to the real thing and works for a variety of applications. Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, see for yourself what this versatile turf can do for your home.
