Artificial Grass for Balconies and Roof Terraces
If you live in an apartment or townhouse, it is possible the only outdoor space you can enjoy is a balcony or roof terrace. Because homeowners and tenants have a desire for outside space, more developers and builders are making balconies a feature of apartments. The question then becomes “how can I turn my balcony or roof terrace into a unique and relaxing outdoor space?”
By installing artificial grass on your balcony or roof terrace, you can give yourself the feel of a garden at your home. Easy to install and with a luxurious feel underfoot, artificial grass is becoming ever more popular for homeowners with balconies or roof terraces. Once the fake turf is laid and adorned with furniture, your balcony will give you a space ideal for al-fresco breakfasts, socialising with friends or even sunbathing on a hot, sunny day.
Why Choose Artificial Grass for a Balcony or Roof Terrace?
Many people, after a hard day’s work, like nothing more than to relax in the garden. This is not quite as easy for people living in apartments, flats or houses with no outside space. However, if you have a balcony or roof terrace, we have the answer. The installation of artificial grass on your balcony or roof terrace gives you that much desired oasis of green even if you live in the city centre.
Easy to install and maintain, our artificial grass will give a pristine and attractive look to your balcony that will enhance the overall look of your property. While natural grass is unsuitable for balconies and roof terraces for so many reasons, the opposite is true of artificial grass.
Needing no more maintenance that a quick brush or wash and with excellent drainage properties, your balcony can be a more attractive and usable space with little or no effort. Alongside artificial turf, the look of your balcony can be enhanced with the addition of potted plants giving you a real garden feel. So, if you are looking for a unique place to relax after work or for a place to enjoy an outdoor dinner with friends, artificial grass can make your balcony or roof terrace the ideal environment.
What are the Benefits of Artificial Grass for Balconies?
Besides giving your balcony a much more attractive look, there are many other benefits to artificial grass. Not only does artificial grass look aesthetically pleasing in the summer like natural grass, it also stays looking the same throughout the winter months. This ensures your balcony will have that summer feel all year round irrespective of the weather.
Artificial grass requires little to no maintenance as, unlike natural grass, it requires no watering, mowing or fertilising. Artificial turf can be kept looking neat and tidy by giving it a quick brush and is also pet friendly as it is hygienic, easy to clean and unaffected by urine.
The improvement of the look of artificial grass over the years now gives it the appearance of natural grass. In most cases, artificial grass now looks and feels just as good as the real thing.
Artificial turf is also child friendly as it is soft and cushioned meaning all your family can enjoy your balcony or roof terrace together. Our range of artificial grass is also long long-lasting meaning, with minimum maintenance, you can have an attractive usable outside space for years to come.
What is the best type of artificial grass for balconies and roof terraces?
When it comes to choosing artificial grass for a balcony or rooftop terrace, a shorter pile is the best option. Turf on your balcony will generally be viewed from above meaning the need to give a perception of depth is not as important. Due tom being viewed in this way, people are unable to distinguish between different depths of grass.
Longer piles of grass are also more expensive meaning choosing a longer pile could be seen as false economy as you would not get the full effect. When looking for artificial grass for your balcony, pile density is more important than length.
