Astro turf is considered more environment friendly than natural grass because it does not require watering. Apart from that, there is almost no maintenance cost as you do not have to shape and trim the grass at regular intervals. It’s true that it saves water but at the same time it covers land with plastic. Thus, most people think twice before they install astro turf in their homes. Here are different ways by which you can use astro turf at your home and backyard.
Add some green in driveways
It is really tough to grow a narrow strip of grass in the driveway. With the cars moving above the soil gets contracted easily. Thus, growing grass there may be a difficult choice. You can use artificial grass in the driveway and give a classic look to the driveway.
Give your balcony soft corner

It is always possible to have real grass but the maintenance there will be tough. Thus, a soft artificial grass beneath your feet can give overwhelming feelings every time you walk to your balcony.
Make backyard sport field
You may have a great backyard but playing there becomes tough after a rain! Don’t worry with artificial turf installed there it is possible for you to play there. You will get the softness of grass and at the same time there is almost no maintenance required. Even after a rain there is no issue of mud as water does not accumulate there!
Create an easy clean-Up surface for pets
Fake grass is good at absorbing any liquid as it is designed to be permeable. If you make an area for your pet it will absorb the liquid waste. Then it becomes easy to remove the solid waste and wash the area. The best thing is that you do not have to worry about discoloring the fake grass.
Lay down between pavers
If the ground between pavers is covered with green it looks good. However, you need to mow it regularly to maintain it! If you lay down artificial turf there it will look good and at the same time you do not have to worry about maintaining it!
