Today, more and more homeowners work with professionals for designing and installing beautiful turf as part of their modern backyard. Artificial turf has evolved from those shiny green plastics you can spot even from miles away to real-looking ones that it is almost hard to tell that the grass is fake until you notice the absence of brown spots or it feels different when you touch it.
Here are a few great ideas you can use if you want to add some turf in your backyard.
Make Your Shady Patio Livelier with Turf
You can brighten up your otherwise shady patio with some turf. Look for turf that is not only soft to touch but will also add a touch of warmth to your patio. It doesn’t matter if you are wearing slippers or not as you wouldn’t have any trouble venturing into this cozy space.
Give Your Driveway a Facelift with Turf
Try to incorporate artificial turf in between the concrete slabs to achieve a look seamlessly blending the driveway to the front entry for a more spacious feel.
Use Different Materials
Aside from turf, try to use architectural plants, yellow walls complete with sculpture, and wood decking and complete with tree at the center of your backyard. This will offer your guests lots of focal points to admire and adore.
Create a Paradise for Kids
If your children love spending time in the sandbox, it will be easier for them to get back if their play area is surrounded by turf instead of real grass. As long as it didn’t rain, you can blow or sweep back the sand in with no worries that it will potentially stick to wet soil. Let your kids play their favorite ball games like catch, soccer, and more.
Try a Non-Linear Design
Backyards no longer need to exist in a boundary. Be extra playful with your design and use modern seating to add a touch of youth to your outdoor space.
Add Turf between Natural Stone
Place slate squares in between turf strips to add some life to an otherwise rustic look that doesn’t require too much care and maintenance.
Water Stays Only in the Pool
Artificial turf is not just about adding greens to your backyard. You can also have some applied around your pool to provide that comforting feel to bare feet after taking a dip in the water. You can create more interest with the use of a railroad pattern to soften the whole look and use wood furniture instead of metal.
Go for Pretty and Functional
If you need a bigger strip of turf, make sure it also has a practical purpose. From large chess boards to bocce ball, you can put greens anywhere and everywhere you like.
Add depth to your small backyard through the use of a modern checker design. This makes your garden look more European with muted hues of lavender and greens. A fountain and tall trees can also create some sense of privacy.
