artificial grass balcony

Artificial grass is used both indoors and outdoors because of its durability, aesthetic purposes and cost-saving features. It is made of synthetic fibres used to cover grounds and imitate the natural grass lawns. Over the decades, it has been enhancing its features to a more realistic look as many people are aiming for a comfortable, safe, and lovely home. 

Whether you are trying for a modern or rustic theme, there are many ways to employ fake grass to improve your home’s interior décor. Here are some ideas on how you can beautify your home with artificial grass

Artificial Grass for House Decor

As a homeowner, you want to have a beautiful and refreshing environment in your house. Therefore, the effective use of synthetic grass as a décor element is vital since it might be excessive at some point.

Artificial Pampas Grass

Artificial pampas grass is commonly used for house décor as a low-maintenance substitute for actual grass. In comparison to natural pampas grass, artificial faux pampas grass does not require storage for most of the year. This sort of low-maintenance accent is a fantastic choice for many homeowners’ living rooms. 

You may use artificial faux pampas grass’s false look all year to create seasonal arrangements. Although this grass is most beautiful during the summer, its brown hue is attractive throughout the year, including winter and fall. The plant’s natural appearance works well with any lighting fixture, toss cushions, or carpets that may have opposing energies. The natural, open environment will transport you to the great outdoors.

Artificial Turf

Artificial grass installation has been popular and effective in landscaping, sports, playgrounds, notably in house décor. Homeowners prefer synthetic grass to genuine one since it is almost maintenance-free and may save money on fertilizers and water expenses. Artificial grass is more environmentally friendly than natural grass. It makes it acceptable to integrate it into your interior design scheme and provide an eye-catching and valuable appeal to your area.


Many people prefer to have a little green on their balconies. Synthetic grass can be utilized to enhance your balcony and give it a tranquil, inviting look. It is an excellent choice for your balcony’s floor-remodelling project since it requires very little upkeep. Usually, balconies are great for seating and relaxing as most homeowners choose to put their plants there for sunshine. If you want to appreciate the gorgeous view and experience the chilly sensation from your balcony, you can give it a makeover with synthetic grass. 


Another method for using fake grass is as a gorgeous wall covering. It could provide a calmer, more natural, and pleasing aesthetic when used as a wall covering. Additionally, you may hang things on it, like plants, wicker baskets, and even ornamental accessories. If you do not have much time to maintain your lawn, synthetic grass is the right choice for you. It will give your home a contemporary style and not attract bugs or other pests.


Artificial grass is widely suggested for children’s play areas due to its natural subtleties and coolness. To provide safety for your child, you may put down a grass carpet to safeguard them from tripping or slipping. The optimum type of artificial grass for playgrounds is polyethylene artificial turf. It looks a lot more natural, has a softer texture, and is highly durable, enabling you to take off your shoes and move barefoot. 

If you plan to buy artificial grass for your playground, you need to consider the artificial turf’s pile height. Pile height is the total length of the grass blades from the carpet to the tip of surface fibres. It is advisable to find synthetic grass with a 30 – 37 mm pile height if you want perfect comfort for your area. 


Change your patio into a new and colourful location where you can have bonding, discussions, and moments with your family. When choosing artificial grass for your patio, you need to pick a floor that is easy to maintain and comfortable. The primary purpose of improving your terrace is to make it into a joyful, park-like ambiance that attracts us to relax and spend long hours with our family and peers. Indeed, most of us enjoy staying on terraces, especially if you need a sip of coffee and some fresh air to breathe. 

Small Gazebo

Eating with your family outside is priceless, especially if you lack space indoors for large groups. Artificial grass may brighten your environment and impart a sense of serenity and freshness. Folding furniture, such as wooden tables and chairs, hanging plants, exquisite flower vases, or a tiny sofa, can be added. Apart from dining, this is an excellent spot for reading and meditating.

Expert tips for natural-looking artificial grass

Why you should double check your Artificial Turf measurements

When measuring up for artificial grass installation it’s crucial to know exactly how much artificial turf you are going to need for your project. Just imagine being short a few square metres on your project or you have massively over-ordered your artificial turf. Double check your measurements and also ensure you order slightly more artificial turf than you think in case there is miscalculation or errors.

How do you prepare the ground for synthetic grass?

Preparing the base so that it is rubble-free, smooth and flat is essential to the success of your DIY turf-laying project. Skip a step and you risk unwanted lumps and bumps. 

Remove any existing turf and soil including any stones, pebbles and debris. We suggest you dig to around 7.5cm deep.


  1. To prevent any regrowth from weeds and unwanted plants, place a plastic membrane over the entire cleared area. 
  2. Apply a thin layer of crushed stone over the top of the plastic membrane.
  3. Use planks of wood to create a new layer over the top of the crushed stone. 
  4. If you are laying your artificial grass over the top of concrete or paving stones, it’s essential to check that it is level. If not, you will need to use a spirit level and create extra height with additional concrete or other materials. You will also need to make sure that there is adequate drainage close by to handle excess rain and water.
  5. We recommend that you use a foam underlay on the top of the concrete to create a more comfortable feel underfoot. Easy Turf suggests using 5mm of foam underlay on top of concrete and pavers to give some softness.
  6. Use a compactor where necessary to ensure a level and robust finish to your foundations.
How to roll out and peg your synthetic grass

Once you have the foundations in place, it is time to peg out your turf, a crucial step before you permanently fix it into position. Follow these steps to ensure the best results.

Slowly unroll your synthetic turf over the carefully prepared foundations.
Use your nails and/or pegs and place at even intervals along the turf but about 30-40cm from the edge to hold it in place (the space between the nail and the edge of the grass will be held down by the adhesive tape used in step D).
If you are using artificial grass on concrete, paving stone or hard floor, use industrial-strength synthetic turf glue instead of nails. As before, leave a gap of approximately 30-40cm to the edge of the grass to allow for the use of tape.
Add the next strip of artificial grass and use the same principles, either nailing/pegging or glueing in place and leaving the space to allow for taping.
As you lay the consecutive strips, be careful to ensure that the pile of the grass is running in the same direction (if the fibres are pointing in alternate ways you will have an uneven stripe in your grass). If in doubt, use your hand to feel which way the threads are pointing.
Once you have covered all your area with synthetic turf you are ready for the next step. Use your industrial strength tape to connect adjoining grass strips. Apply tape along the entire length of one piece of grass and then ‘connect’ the section next to it by laying that on top of the remaining tape. Flatten and ensure that it is a tight fit without any gaps or unstuck areas.

What is the purpose of sand on artificial grass?
  • The sand helps the ‘roots’ of the synthetic grass to stay upright, regardless of use; this avoids the grass appearing to flatten on high traffic areas. 
  • As the sand helps the grass to remain upright it does create a variation on the angle that they point which resembles the blades of real grass. 
  • Sand helps to prevent a flattening of the blades in high traffic areas.
  • Using the correct type of sand (only use artificial turf white sand) allows for excellent drainage without washing away the sand or soaking up excess water. 
  • The sand remains within the turf and doesn’t rub off on clothing or on kids and pets who choose to roll on the grass.

Can I Lay Fake Grass On Dirt

It’s not advisable to lay fake grass on topsoil or any sort of soil. This will leave you with an uneven finish for your freshly installed artificial grass, and also have weeds slowly grow in over time.

How To Lay Artificial Grass On Sand

Artificial grass cannot be placed only on sand, as you need to use crushed rock to assist with the drainage and ensure that the synthetic grass stays level.

Why use silicon sand with your artificial grass?

Once you’ve laid your artificial grass you have two options in your next steps. You can either leave the grass as is or add sand to make it appear more natural.

Adding sand to the grass can help it appear more natural as it helps keep the grass upright. To add the proper amount of sand ee recommend that you allow for approximately 10-15kg per sqm for coverage. Using a rake or a broom, sprinkle the sand on top of the grass and walk it in to make sure that it falls deep down into the pile and settles at the base. Then, water the lawn to help the sand settle down within the grass.
