Benefits of Artificial Grass for Rooftop Applications
Artificial grass is not just for front yards anymore. This versatile alternative to natural grass can also be used to add an aesthetic look to your home – even on your rooftop!
If you’re looking to have a space for a lawn but your home does not have the luxury of a yard and you have an unused rooftop, then maybe it’s time to spruce up that empty space and give it a more natural look.
Installing artificial grass is not only a great way to beautify your rooftop, but you can also enjoy some indirect benefits. Here are some of them:
Artificial Grass Provides Insulation
Homeowners and building managers are always looking for ways to make their property more energy efficient. One option that many people don’t think of is artificial turf or grass.
A layer of artificial grass on your flat-top or top-floor patio can help insulate the structure underneath it. This layer of insulation protects you from extreme conditions during a cold winter or a sweltering summer heat. The protection that an artificial turf provides significantly reduces utility costs, saving you thousands of dollars in the long run.
So if you’re looking for a way to save energy for your home, consider installing artificial turf. You’ll not only enjoy the greenery but you’ll also save green dollars along the way.
Artificial Grass Requires a Lot Less Attention
Artificial grass, or “fake grass” as it’s often called, has a lot of great benefits over natural grass. First of all, fake grass doesn’t need watering- so you don’t have to worry about setting up a sprinkler system or anything like that. It also never needs to be mowed, so you’ll never have to spend time weeding or fertilizing it. Plus, artificial turf is a great option if you have pets because there are options to make it resistant to stains and odors. If a patch becomes discoloured, just replace it with a new section to match and blend.
Artificial turf is also a great option for rooftops because it lasts a long time. All you have to do is sweep off any dust and pet droppings every once in a while.
Fake Grass helps with your Drainage
When you install fake grass, you don’t have to worry about drainage! On a normal rooftop, rainwater will be transported to the roof drains, which can overwhelm plumbing pipes. With artificial grass, your roof can pick up about 50% of the rainwater and release it back into the atmosphere. This reduces the risk of your sewerage system from flooding and reduces the load of your water treatment.
Fake Grass Looks and Feels Like Real Grass
Do you long for the days when you could go outside and play in the grass? Well, your days of longing are over! With artificial grass, you can have all the fun of playing in the grass, without any of the pesky allergies or mud puddles.
Artificial grass is designed to look and feel just like regular grass, so you can have a touch of greenery wherever you need it. Whether you’re looking to add a bit of life to an ugly concrete building or just want a place to hang out with your friends, artificial grass is the perfect solution.
Plus, with social media becoming more and more popular, having a green rooftop has become a hot commodity. Imagine being able to snap some pictures of your family BBQing on a beautiful green rooftop in the middle of the city! With artificial grass, this concept can become a reality.
