Interesting Uses of Superior Grass – Rooftop Garden

Artificial grass is a fantastic alternative to a real lawn. It saves money on water bills and saves time on lawn mowing and weeding. Plus, you don’t need to worry about hay fever. Artificial grass is a perfect substitute for natural turf.

That said, artificial grass isn’t just for your back garden, and during our blog series on its most interesting applications, we’ll show you ways you’ve never thought of using it.

Our first blog takes a look at the rooftop terrace.

Roof tops in general are not strong enough to support a real lawn, but that shouldn’t stop you from having a beautiful garden setting above the houses. Artificial grass allows you to create the perfect rooftop garden as it is installed quickly and can be held down easily by planters, adhesive or sand. Even better, there’s no weeding to be done and any food or drink spills can be washed away in seconds. Drainage is great too, so you don’t have to worry about rain collecting on your roof.

So if you live in an apartment with a rooftop or terrace space that you could be getting more use from, or a house with minimal garden but a generous flat rooftop, artificial grass could be the perfect way to create your urban oasis. Just add lush plants, some atmospheric solar lighting, a stylish bistro set and enjoy going al fresco above the skyline.
