Innovative Artificial Turf Solutions: More than Just a Substitute for Grass


More than just a practical feature, artificial turf has taken on a whole new dimension in the field of design and creativity. Traditionally a replacement for grass or used as a fun feature in the yards of aspiring amateur golfers, synthetic turf has taken on an entirely new element as an accent piece.

Artificial Turf Express has made installing artificial grass so easy, that do-it-yourselfers have made an art out of the fake grass. Placed under boulders, beside ponds, or as a frame around gardens or floral designs, synthetic turf has added a new facet to the beauty of yards. For the decorator in you, cut and piece artificial turf in between pavers to add color and creativity to your walkway. For a bolder appearance, space different sized sections of artificial turf in asymmetrical patterns adjacent to tiles and pavers of different textures and colors. The result is a freeform appearance of a very colorful and artistic design that is sure to have the neighborhood talking.
