More and more people are making the switch to artificial grass. The advantages of artificial grass, including a stunning look, low maintenance and excellent resilience, are simply too appealing to ignore. Moreover, you can easily lay artificial grass on most common surfaces. These 5 popular applications give you a glimpse of what lies within the realm of possibility.
“Dirt, soil, tiles or even concrete; every sub base is suitable for artificial grass. As long as the surface is ‘clean’, you’re good to go.” Frédéric Rasschaert, General Manager at Turfgrass
The versatility of artificial grass opens the door to original, eye-catching projects in unexpected places. Here are 5 of our favourites.
1. Around swimming pools
We’ve all seen it happen: excited children running around the swimming pool and then slipping on a wet surface. Natural grass, on the other hand, deteriorates quickly when chlorine water splashes onto it. So, what can you do? With artificial grass around your private or community pool, you combine safety with beauty and comfort.
2. On balconies, terraces and rooftops
Artificial blades don’t need to root, so a ‘soilless’ surface serves just as well as fertile ground for the installation of synthetic grass. The only condition is having an escape route for water, such as a gutter or a drain. So, why not turn your balcony, terrace or rooftop into a real eye-catcher? A touch of green can make a world of difference, as these examples show.
3. For kids’ playgrounds
Playgrounds at schools or in public spaces make for good memories and a lot of laughter. Children tripping or falling can cause some unwanted tears, but hey, what can you do? Well, quite a lot, as it turns out. A playground with artificial grass is soft, hygienic and resilient. In short, it breathes safety. With our unique Customgrass collection, you can even add colours or designs.
4. Indoor use
One of the biggest advantages of artificial grass is that it doesn’t absorb dirt or humidity. In other words, it’s easy to clean. That’s why synthetic grass is becoming very popular for indoor use. A grass wall in a sports bar, a grass play area in a day care centre, a grass carpet in your living room or grass decoration in your company: if you can think it, you can do it.
5. At sports facilities
Many padel, tennis, football, hockey, rugby and golf players praise the added value that artificial grass contributes to their sport. It allows for consistent, high-level playing conditions all year long, even in winter and during periods of intensive use. For organisations, the high durability combined with low maintenance costs means a financial boost.
