Benefits of Installing Artificial Grass on Rooftops and Balconies
There is nothing like adding a touch of green when you want to create a more natural outside environment.
More of us than ever before live in homes without access to a garden. But that does not mean that you can’t enjoy a “lawn.” Even when the only outside space you have is a rooftop or balcony, you can still enjoy a bit of green.
As matter of fact, there are many good reasons you should install artificial grass on your balcony or rooftop.
A Safe Place To Play
Artificial grass has come a long way in recent years. The texture of artificial grass is now much more natural than in years past.
Softer types of artificial grass provide a great place for your kids to play. Children living in apartments or in terrace homes without a garden have a huge need for outside space. With artificial grass you can quickly create a safe soft environment for the most active toddler.
Pets love it as well. Your dog will love to sunbathe on your newly created balcony lawn.
Unlike wood and stone surfaces, you are less at risk from falling over and slipping on artificial grass.
Provides Insulation For The Home
We are all being encouraged to find new ways to cut down our home heating bills. Did you know that an artificial lawn on your rooftop can help you to do just that?
Artificial grass has an insulating effect. As you probably know, heat rises in a building. A layer of artificial grass will provide extra insulation and reduce the amount of heat that escapes.
In a warm country, artificial grass will help to keep your home cooler as it insulates from the outside heat.
Easy To Keep Clean
Artificial grass is very easy to keep clean. Remember that there are different varieties. The best thing to do is to pick the variety which is right for you. If you don’t have a lot of time dedicated to keeping outside spaces clean, go for one of the shorter grasses.
All you have to do to keep artificial grass clean is to brush with a garden brush or hose it down with water from time to time.
As artificial grass is rather “bomb-proof”, you can even use mild detergents to keep it looking great.
If you require artificial grass for your dog then our Turf Enzyme Spray combined with any of our high-quality turf products are the perfect solution for managing bacteria and odour.
Cut Down On Home Maintenance
Weather can seriously damage your roof. If you live in a terrace home, you are probably aware of the challenging effects of our changing climate.
Harsh sun and sand-filled rain can get into the surface of your roof terrace and start causing damage. An artificial lawn is worth its weight in gold when it comes to protecting your roof. It will stop the worse of the weather from getting to your roof.
Green Makes Your Balcony And Rooftop Feel Like A Garden
The colour green adds to any natural theme that you may already have in your garden. When you have pots and containers filled with plants, adding artificial grass will help to make the space feel more natural.
A green space in the middle of the city packed with plants and artificial grass helps to attract wildlife. Butterflies, bees and other pollinating insects are more likely to visit your outside paradise when you add artificial grass.
Green spaces are important to us. Yes, it may be artificial but it will still brighten your personal outside space.
