Let’s face it, things change – and artificial grass today offers a beautiful aesthetic that more than rivals the real thing.

There are many benefits to choosing artificial grass for your lawn areas. It’s low- if not, no-maintenance – so no time-taking, back-breaking mowing or weeding required – and can bring life to spaces natural grass might struggle to grow.

In fact, there are many more ways to utilise the green, textural, natural look of artificial grass without resorting to the hassle of dealing with the real stuff. Here are some ideas to inspire you.

Adding grass to a drab balcony area can really liven it up. Real grass would be difficult to manicure and keep looking good in these often confined spaces.


Using artificial grass between pavers can also soften the look of the hardscape in surrounding areas – and again it looks great without the need for constant upkeep. These hard to mow spaces would be a nightmare to upkeep with real grass.

Artificial grass can look great besides pools too. As this is an area with high foot-traffic that is often splashed with chlorinated water, real grass would turn to unsightly hay in days! Artificial grass is anti-slip, too, so you can breathe a little easier if you have kids running around your pool environment.

Another place artificial grass comes into its own is in children’s play areas as it looks great and makes for a soft landing surface.

Thinking outside the box, outdoor furniture can be given a unique and unexpected touch when fabricated with artificial grass. Since it’s made for outdoor use, it can certainly handle the elements.

With some creative thinking and Kiwi ingenuity, almost anything is possible with artificial grass.
