Creative Uses for Artificial Grass

Once you’ve ordered your artificial turf and prepared some simple tools, it’s time to flex your DIY muscles. Here are some projects to get you started:

  • Table Decorations

Add flair to your backyard parties by upgrading your tables with artificial grass. You can cut the turf into strips to make runners, or cover the entire table with synthetic grass. You can even cut it into smaller sizes to create coasters and place mats. Synthetic grass fibres are hard-wearing and resilient so you don’t have to worry about damaging it when serving dishes or placing centrepieces on the surface.

  • Accent Areas and Pathways

Artificial turf can be used to create stepping stones or pathways in areas where stone or paving is used for landscape.  Not only does it add a splash of color, but it also makes it easier to walk on especially if you need to clear away debris or perform maintenance tasks. You can also cut artificial turf and place it around patios, pools, or decks as stepping pads to prevent slips and falls if the area gets wet.

  • Seat and Bench Covers

Soft and thick, artificial grass makes for a nice surface to sit on. Use it to cover your outdoor seats and benches! It’s easy to form seams by stitching the mesh, fabric backing together. Covering outdoor furniture with artificial turf makes them more comfortable, durable, and offers greater protection from the elements.

  • Numbers and Letters

For an extra touch of green to your lawn and home, consider cutting out letters and numbers from artificial turf. One example is spelling out your family’s last name out of turf and displaying it on your lawn’s landscaped area. You can also form your house number, and attach it to one side of your house. Artificial grass accessories stand out well against background of all colors, and they are a beautiful way to add visual texture to your home.

  • Recreational Areas and Game Boards

If your yard is big enough, you can use different shades of synthetic grass to recreate the look of your favorite games like hopscotch, tic-tac-toe, or a simple board game. Get some lawn paint to write out numbers, draw boundaries, and other markings the game requires, and enjoy hours of fun playing with family and friends.

  • Dog Yard

Give your dog a special place to play on with artificial turf! Set aside a corner of your yard and cut turf to fit. Synthetic grass for dogs drains quickly and can withstand the impact of excited paws, making it an excellent choice for pet runs.
