Artificial Turf Trends: Living Small

Kristen Eichenmuller News

Whether you’re living in a tiny house or a high-rise building, green your space with maintenance-free artificial turf from SYNLawn.

For some, living the American dream means buying a large home with a big backyard in the suburbs with a white picket fence. But nowadays, more and more people are looking to live a bit simpler by choosing to live in smaller homes. With limited space to build in the suburbs, people are downsizing, and even tiny house communities are popping up as part of this new trend. While urbanites remain comfortable in their apartments and high-rise condos, they recognize that to create more space you’ve got to get creative. But living small also tends to not leave much room for things like lawn mowers. Without the need to devote energy and resources on landscape maintenance, that means more time to lead an active lifestyle and enjoy life’s other pleasures. Homeowners and even renters can carry this mantra of simplicity to the outdoors with virtually maintenance-free artificial turf.

Whether you’re taking part in the tiny house movement or living in the city, you might find yourself asking: Am I making the most of my outdoor space? Living more simply most likely means saying goodbye to a large backyard, but it doesn’t mean having to give up on having a green living space. The simplicity of artificial grass allows you the ease of just laying a piece down to cover your hard or unsightly surface without having to permanently install it. Tiny houses, RVs and vacation homes are no problem. Just roll it up, take it with you to your next location, unroll and you have an instant green space.

(Right) You can still have a lush-looking rooftop garden with artificial turf, but you can spend your weekends tending to your flowers instead of mowing the lawn.

Synthetic turf is the perfect landscape alternative for those living small since it creates a more usable, functional space. Adding potted plants or a vertical garden helps create a backyard feel. Transforming a patio with pavers, concrete balcony or rooftop deck into an expanded entertainment area; play space for pets and children; or a rooftop garden retreat is easy when you install SYNLawn’s artificial grass for roofs, decks and patios.

It also incorporates our exclusive EnviroLoc™ technology for a product that’s 60 to 70 percent green by weight, and it locks in turf fibers to help extend the life of the product.
