The Best Three Places to Install Artificial Grass – Besides Your Lawn

When considering different design options for your roof, balcony or patio, odds are you didn’t jump straight to artificial grass. Most associate synthetic grass installation with updating their backyards, but the unique functionality and stunning modern artificial grass designs make it a surprisingly fantastic way to revamp your home’s exterior areas. The minimal maintenance and realistic feel of synthetic turf are ideal for creating green oases all around – or on top of – your home. Here are our three favorite ways of using artificial grass beyond the front yard.

1. Artificial Grass Creates a Green Rooftop

Installing artificial grass on your roof is a brilliant way to make use of space so often overlooked. If you’ve got a flat roof, a contractor can easily install synthetic turf over the top to create a unique place for you and your household to enjoy. Synthetic turf installation on your roof gives you new ways to enjoy your home (rooftop parties, anyone?) but also helps insulate your home, making it more energy-efficient. Especially in urban areas without backyards, installing artificial grass on your roof is a great way to enjoy the sunshine.

2. Layer Your Balcony with Synthetic Grass

Artificial grass is cut to fit perfectly in any space to be easily installed on your balcony. It also creates a beautiful and easy-to-maintain surface underneath your outdoor plants or furniture and adds a pop of color to the outside of your home. Synthetic grass reduces the heat given off by concrete, so you can comfortably go barefoot when enjoying time out on your balcony. 

3. A Low-Maintenance Artificial Grass Porch

For places often used to entertain like your porch or patio, having design elements that are both visually beautiful and low-maintenance is crucial. Synthetic grass is simple to install on a balcony and mix with other features, like cement, to customize the design of your space. Artificial grass is easy to clean and works well with outdoor furniture, making it the perfect choice for entertaining your loved ones during cookouts and family celebrations.

Adding artificial grass to the exterior of your home is an easy way to make a big difference in the look and functionality of your residence. The sky is (literally) the limit when it comes to installing synthetic grass; it’s incredibly versatile and can be customized to fit just about any vision you have for your home. OC Turf and Putting Greens specializes in premier artificial grass for Orange County residents to enjoy for years to come. We combine durability and design, resulting in synthetic turf that looks and feels remarkably similar to natural grass while being much easier to maintain.

The Top 4 Different Types of Artificial Turf Blades

Southern California is being landscaped more and more with artificial grass, but you might not have even noticed. That’s because synthetic turf design has come a long way – OC Turf and Putting Greens’ artificial grass has functional benefits and a look and feel that is remarkably similar to natural grass. We use five major types of artificial grass blades so we can pinpoint the ideal synthetic turf solution for your particular landscaping needs. We’ve broken down the basic differences between blades below to give you a crash course in the excellent variety of design options for you to choose from at OC Turf and Putting Greens.

W-Shaped Blades

Our most popular artificial grass, the TigerTurf Diamond line, is made with intelligently-designed W-shaped blades. Ideal for those looking for incredibly durable synthetic grass for their outdoor surfaces, W-shaped blades spring back to their original shape after being bent by foot traffic. The strength of this blade design makes it perfect for high-traffic places like playgrounds and sports fields.

Omega-Shaped Blades

Omega-shaped blades are another excellent choice for durability. Omega synthetic grass fibers are strong enough to withstand regular foot traffic as well as the use of heavy equipment, while still having a soft feel and realistic appearance. Their durability makes omega-shaped turf blades an excellent choice for pet spaces, playgrounds and other high-traffic areas.

Diamond-Shaped Blades

Diamond-shaped blades are the ideal choice for those looking for the most realistic, soft-to-the-touch artificial grass for their outdoor surfaces. Perfect for lawns or landscapes that experience medium foot traffic, diamond-shaped blades are ideal for giving your home or business the lavish look of thriving natural grass. 

S-Shaped Blades

S-shaped blades are unique in their ability to limit the flattening of areas of your synthetic grass lawn due to foot traffic. Their unique shape not only gives them a soft texture but also allows them to resist compression from the continual walking and playing across the surface of your artificial grass. This makes the s-shape an excellent choice of blade shape for artificial turf installation in areas with medium to high levels of foot traffic.

You don’t research artificial grass blades for fun; you’re ensuring that you’re making a sound investment by choosing synthetic grass. OC Turf and Putting Greens guarantees that you get excellent synthetic grass that will benefit you and your family for years to come.
