People generally want to see green colors and it is believed that the green color represents nature and life but for some, it would be difficult to find real grass which is hard to care for. Therefore, it is generally agreed today that the artificial grass has been used in the balconies as much as in the terrace and patio. By far, they are installed for gardens and backyards. However, I am going to state some detailed information concerning artificial grass and the aspect of decorative purposes for balconies.
The materials of the artificial grass
First of all, the artificial grasses, the materials of which are made of polypropylene, polyethylene, polyamide, and nylon have been manufactured for half of the century. There are even different strains of artificial grasses which are mostly used, public areas such as, football, running fields, and private places, for instance, the walkway for the home gardens. They are fibrillated grass and monofilament grass.
Advice and Points to Consider
Second, there is some striking point of the synthetic grasses. They can be found in all sorts of colors on the market. The red one or the brown one could be evaluated as a balcony doormat. I recommend you to purchase the green one. Even if it is a synthetic one, it will be looking like an original grass in your balcony. Meanwhile, not only are they used for decorative purposes but also they are health and security-oriented. In other words, they are nonflammable and anti-bacterial.
Advantages and Disadvantages
Third, there are a few advantages and disadvantages to having artificial turfs. In consideration of the appearance, the synthetic turfs generally are aesthetic. Besides, it is easy to maintain its grass surface. There are three things that all you have to do is respectively to brush the grass regularly, pick up the leaves and watch the extreme heats.
Some Extra Accessories
Among other things, I would like to indicate the use of the artificial lawn on balconies. I cannot just imagine the full grass floor. So I spotted two different use. The first use is the artificial grass, the edges of which are adorned with colorful stones. The planter or the flower stand could be put on the stones. In the picture below, you can see white stones onto the screen to give you an idea.
The second use is the synthetic turf which shares the balcony floor with the portable runnen decks. Using the balcony %50-%50 may be a great idea because the balcony doesn’t have to be turned into a garden. You could use the runnen deck side as a cafe where the adults speak with each other. The other grass side can be evaluated as a cat balcony or perhaps a small playing place for kids.
Once you laid successfully the artificial lawn onto the balcony floor, all of the decorative pieces of stuff go with that. To illustrate, hanging plant baskets, wooden crate and ladder planter could team up with your turf. Plus the little golf course might be made if you have a long balcony. Now the one hand there is the possibility to look same gloomy concrete without decorating but on the other hand, you could get a chance of having such a balcony garden. Of course, the choice is always yours.
