TURF! How creative can you be?

Artificial turf is a surface of synthetic fibers made to look like natural grass. It is most often used in arenas for sports that were originally or are normally played on grass. However, it is now being used on residential lawns and commercial applications as well.
Artificial turf does have its downside: limited life, periodic cleaning requirements, petroleum use, toxic chemicals from infill, and some heightened health and safety concerns but its aesthetic advantages outweighs.

  • Artificial turf can be a better solution when the environment is particularly hostile to natural grass. An arid environment or one where there is little natural light are examples.
  • Artificial turf can withstand significantly more use than natural grass and can therefore be used much more frequently. This allows sports ground owners to generate more income from their facilities This artificial turf is eco-friendly because it avoids the use of chemicals, cuts water usage dramatically, and the synthetic material can be recycled.
  • Ideal for holiday homes when maintenance of lawns is not practical. It is also a solution for elderly home-owners who find the upkeep of lawns too much hard work. Artificial turf can be vacuumed, broom cleaned or hosed over.
  • Suitable for outdoor decoration; roof gardens and swimming pool surrounds.
  • Some artificial turf systems allow for the integration of fiber-optic fibers into the turf. This would allow for lighting or advertisements to be directly embedded in a playing surface, or runway lighting to be embedded in artificial landing surfaces for aircraft.
  • Very low maintenance required compared to natural grass
  • No mowing, and reduces water use

And this is what we made with the artificial turf for our own porch/balcony. Need to know what other items to decorate your porch/outdoor, click here.
