Synthetic Grass Outdoor Areas for Small Spaces

Just because you live in an apartment or condominium does not mean you can’t enjoy your outdoor living spaces.

Though many of us envision synthetic grass in larger applications (the Astrodome, for example), it is actually well-suited for small living spaces too. Whether you live in an apartment, a condo, a townhouse, or an RV, synthetic grass is a convenient, cost-effective, and beautiful addition for smaller outdoor areas.

There are numerous ways to use synthetic grass in smaller living spaces while still creating a huge impact.

Read on to find out more about living small with synthetic grass outdoor areas.

Apartments and Condos

If you live in an apartment or condominium, then you know that outdoor space comes at a premium.

Because apartments are built to offer many people living space in a small (and mostly vertical) location, balconies, gardens, and outdoor entertaining areas are often hard to find – and, when they are available, they are small, or may not get enough sunlight to grow thick, lush grass. So in these spaces of cement and brick, mortar and steel, how can you make a homey, warm, verdant garden?

You won’t have to worry about uncooperative climates or environments when you install synthetic grass – no matter if you live stories above the nearest fertile soil, your outdoor space will always look green and alive, the perfect welcoming, comfortable area to entertain.

If you have a shared common outdoor space in your urban oasis, consider requesting that synthetic grass is used to enhance the space. It will allow room for outdoor games like Bocce and horseshoes, will make the space more aesthetically pleasing and will increase the comfort and enjoyment of all those using the space. If you have a rooftop balcony, you can create the look of a “living roof” by installing synthetic grass and decorating with planters of flowers and flowering bushes. It may even make your apartment, condo, or build more pet-friendly, as synthetic grass can be used as an eco-friendly, easy-to-clean area for pets to exercise and relieve themselves.

Offering residents a swimming pool area for the warm summer months is another common feature in RV parks.

This is another ideal area to landscape with synthetic grass. Grass can become worn, and frequently traversed paths may become muddy and slippery. Additionally, people lounging by the pool may not want to deal with mowers or, worse, grass that sticks to their wet bathing suits. Artificial grass is an ideal and attractive alternative that will circumvent this inconveniences while creating a safe, slip-free surface.
