Artificial turf trends are fast becoming one of the most innovative ways to furnish your space a contemporary look. Ease of maintenance and versatility is why turf offers an aesthetic appeal providing a fresh and finished appearance to almost any landscaping project. Regardless if you’re interested in freshening up your outdoor entertaining area or get more functionality or punch to a boring outdoor space, artificial turf design plans are the way you want to go. Synthetic turf is the latest trend in landscaping that’s guaranteed to add a visually stunning design element.
Synthetic Turf Stepping Stones
Synthetic grass stepping stones can add color and texture to an otherwise dry, lackluster patio or backyard. In lieu of your traditional concrete patio stepping stones, you should try artificial turf squares glued to concrete stones instead. It is a fairly easy DIY project with just handful of materials and some time. The final look provides an interesting and visually engaging landscape design with vibrant green patches of grass against the neutral palate of various pebbles or rocks.

Faux turf is a perfect companion for a luxurious rooftop garden. There is no need for watering or maintenance, and the turf will stand up to the beaming heat of direct sunlight much better than natural grass. Plus, natural grass is not allowed for many rooftop gardens. Adding the look and feel of natural grass to a rooftop garden creates the ambiance of the outdoors while enhancing the appeal of the garden. What’s better, synthetic grass is safe for pets and children and will increase the usability of your rooftop space.

Synthetic Grass Driveway
Step aside traditionally paved or pebbled driveways. The new trend is turf. Driveways that integrate synthetic turf are both useful and visually appealing. The turf affords better water drainage while simultaneously delivering a statement-making entryway to your home. Match the look with concrete pebbles, slabs, or stones to offer a truly custom look that matches the style of your house. You have infinite possibilities, from paving interlaced with faux grass to gravel tire paths bordered with turf.

Bocce Ball Court
Bocce Ball is a game enjoyed by players of all ages and can raise your outdoor entertaining space to the next level. The uniform, smooth surface of synthetic grass makes it the optimal playing surface for Bocce Ball. Synthetic turf is also durable and simple to keep clean. Bocce courts may be any size you can think of, but regulation size courts are typically 13 feet x 19 feet. You can build your own wood frame, but be sure the ground is level and flat before laying it out. While many courts use base rock and crushed oyster shells, with turf you have no mess and optimal ball roll.
