5 Exciting Artificial Turf Projects for the Weekend

With Artificial Turf Express, you’re always only one call away from getting what you need for your synthetic grass installations. We offer a wide variety of turf colors, styles and face weights to suit all types of projects. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. Build a Green Playground

Surprise your kids with their very own wonderland using synthetic turf! This soft, bouncy material means safer play spaces all year round. To begin, pick a corner of your yard and start preparing the ground for the infill. Cut artificial grass to its dimensions and install it in the area. Personalize the playground with toys, obstacle courses and other outdoor games. Better yet, turn the project into a bonding activity by letting your little ones help!

  1. Build a Dog Run

Another excellent use for synthetic turf is as a surface for pet runs. It drains liquid wastes easily and can withstand the antics of even the rowdiest dogs. Installing the best synthetic grass for dogs in San Jose follows the same easy process as installing other types of artificial turf into on your lawn. Boost the fun factor by adding a sandpit and a dog house for your furry friend.

  1. Create Indoor Green Spaces

Add some pockets of green inside your home using artificial grass. Since it can be applied on typical surfaces such as concrete, synthetic turf offers a great way to switch up your floors or replace carpeting. Some great places for indoor artificial grass are recreation rooms, children’s rooms, the living room and terraces.

  1. Install a Putting Green

Thanks to artificial grass, you don’t have to drive for miles to the range just to play on the best putting greens. Get a personal golf course by installing artificial turf on your yard! Synthetic putting green grass is specially designed for the right ball roll. You can also customize it with curves, additional holes, tee boxes and other course features to make it more challenging. For something a bit more casual, opt for a mini-golf course instead.

  1. Plant an Artificial Garden

Plants and flowers instantly raise your curb appeal and make your lawn a more calming place to be in. However, not everyone has time to tend to real soil and cultivate a flower bed. How about a low-maintenance alternative instead? The porous backing of the best artificial turf makes it a practical foundation for low-maintenance gardens. Arrange some pretty pots with your favorite flora, and watch your yard bloom before your eyes!
