Uses of Artificial Grass


As an increased number of British homeowners are investing their time and money in rooftop gardens and terrace development, the demand for natural-look synthetic grasses and attractive artificial lawns to finish off these projects has soared.

Artificial grass is perfect for roof gardens and terraces thanks to its lightweight nature and ability to drain heavy rainfall quickly and easily. This means that even if you live in a small flat, confined to a miniature garden balcony, you can still benefit from the realistic feeling of artificial grass between your toes.

Recommended Artificial Grass for Roofs and Terraces

As the weight of the grass layer is often a primary concern on roofs, the Artificial Lawn Company team generally recommend opting for non-filled grasses. Some of our suggested grasses for rooftops and terraces include Easy and Landscape lawns which are medium-length grasses between 25mm to 30mm, while our Luxury Lawn is a little longer at 40mm.

With a wide variety of artificial grass products available from our website, there is a product to suit all budgets and projects. Anyone can afford to improve their property with synthetic turf.

Quality-Assured Drainage System

As the roof is the part of the home which is most exposed to rainfall, all our artificial grass has drainage holes to fully drain water from the roof. To assist with drainage, we also supply and strongly recommend Lawnflex tiles. These are an 18mm open cell foam layer that will help the water drain more freely from the surface, provide a cushioned underfoot feel and will add no additional weight to your artificial lawn installation.

Unlike other cheaply made artificial grass surfaces, when you buy from the Artificial Lawn Company, you are buying from a company with more than 20 years' experience in the supply and installation of synthetic turf. This means that quality, durability and a fantastic aesthetic appeal is assured.

Low Maintenance

A natural grass garden requires plenty of attention in the spring to ensure it’s ready for summer. Save yourself maintenance time and instead, swap it out for a gentle brush every so often – the only consistent attention your artificial grass will require of you.

With excellent drainage, a small demand for time and the benefits of a natural appearance and soft feel underfoot, artificial grass is the solution for your roof garden, balcony or terrace.
