Why Synthetic Turf is Perfect for Event Spaces


Artificial grass can provide attractive, low-maintenance and functional spaces ideal for community events, concerts and more.

As of the end of 2014, 40-45 million square feet of synthetic grass for landscape has been installed in the United States, according to the Synthetic Turf Council. It is a fast growing segment of the artificial turf market, as more homeowners, businesses and municipalities realize its many advantages.

Event venues seeking an inviting, green, eco-friendly surface to impress their guests should consider artificial turf as an ideal solution. Artificial grass can be used around commercial buildings, concert venues, community events, amphitheaters, carnivals, festivals, amusement parks, and much more to create a welcoming space and atmosphere. The eco-friendly solution requires minimal resources and maintenance, while providing a clean, soft, aesthetically pleasing surface which is highly durable in all weather conditions.

Why is artificial turf ideal for event spaces?


As consumers continue to seek environmentally-responsible solutions, many have recognized synthetic turf as an attractive option. Environmental advantages of synthetic grass include saving water, preventing pesticide use and reducing maintenance pollution. Many hot climates in particular are facing drought conditions right now, and have water restrictions in place. Every square foot of natural grass replaced with artificial turf can save 55 gallons of water per year.


High-quality artificial grass truly lends the appearance and feel of natural grass. It provides a bright, welcoming impression and can easily be used in combination with other natural or artificial landscaping to create unique, aesthetically pleasing event spaces.


Many people prefer soft surfaces such as grass; however, the hassle of maintaining natural landscaping in event spaces can be quite difficult. Artificial turf provides an attractive, soft surface, while eliminating the added bother of mowing, and the environmental burden of fertilizers, pesticides and watering.


Synthetic grass shrinks overall operating and maintenance expenditures by saving water, and reducing maintenance and the associated labor costs.


The options are virtually endless when using artificial turf in event spaces. Much easier to install and maintain than natural grass, synthetic turf can be cut to fit any size or shape installation, without the need to seed, sod, water or mow. Artificial turf can be used around commercial buildings, concert venues, community events, carnivals, festivals, amusement parks, and much more, and can be used both indoors and outdoors. It can be installed as a permanent or semi-permanent installation to provide versatility for future use.


Artificial grass is extremely crowd-friendly, and can withstand heavy foot traffic and continued use. Many types of turf are highly UV protected to maintain durability and color fastness even in hot climates under heavy sun exposure.


Artificial turf keeps event spaces clean and green, without the mess of dirt, mud, or grass damage in the event of rain or heavy foot traffic. It is non-toxic, allergen free and helps deter insects and other pests.
