Uses of Artificial Grass

Artificial grass roofs are some of the best small garden ideas in the UK for roof gardens and terraces, thanks to their lightweight nature and ability to drain heavy rainfall quickly and easily.

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 recommends opting for non-filled grasses when it comes to fake grass for balcony applications. 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. For a soft and more cushioned feel, you could even opt for our 38mm Comfort Lawn and 45mm Supreme.

With a wide variety of artificial grass products from our website, you can achieve DIY small garden ideas on a budget. Any tradesperson can improve properties with artificial grass on flat roofs.

Quality-Assured Drainage System

As the roof is the part of the home most exposed to rainfall, all our artificial grass has drainage holes to drain water from the roof fully. To assist with drainage, we also supply and strongly recommend Lawnflex tiles. These 18mm open cell foam layers will help the water drain more freely from the surface, provide a cushioned underfoot feel, and only add a little additional weight to your artificial lawn installation.

Unlike other brands, when laying artificial turf on flat roofs with Artificial Lawn Company, you are using a company with more than 20 years of experience in the supply and installation of synthetic turf. This means that quality, durability, and a fantastic aesthetic appeal are assured.
