Chicago, IL — For city dwellers, having a personal outdoor space like a rooftop deck is a highly sought-after home amenity. For those lucky enough to have this type of residential space, rooftop landscaping has become a popular home improvement project. SYNLawn Chicago has helped transform residential rooftops into beautiful outdoor living spaces with more than 50,000 square feet of artificial grass installations across the city.
Designing Chic Outdoor Living in Limited Spaces
Space is limited in residential buildings and houses in cities, so it’s important to take advantage of any outdoor space available. Rooftop decks have been a popular amenity for apartment and condo buildings and single-family homes in Chicago neighborhoods for decades. In recent years – especially during the pandemic when home improvement projects were on the rise – more urbanites sought to transform these areas into chic outdoor spaces for relaxation and entertaining. SYNLawn Chicago’s expert team works closely with home and property owners to design and install eco-friendly synthetic turf to create luxurious green spaces to enjoy quality time with family, friends, and pets. In addition to creating places for socializing and entertaining, they also can transform rooftops into basketball and other sport courts using SYNCourt, a yoga studio, or even a private dog park for pets to enjoy. An added benefit of a landscaped rooftop is that it adds an additional amenity, which will raise the property’s value.
Installing Turf that Stays Pristine Year-Round
Chicago enjoys all four seasons, but the Midwest city is known for its harsh winter climate. In order to keep rooftop landscaping looking pristine year-round, it’s important to install a durable rooftop turf. SYNLawn Chicago uses SYNLawn Roofdeck Platinum and SYNLawn Roofdeck Premium for most rooftop projects. Both products are ideal for high foot traffic and offer unmatched safety since each has an ASTM E108 Class A Fire Rating. For enhanced performance, each rooftop product is made with Super Yarn™ technology that provides heat reflective, anti-static, Sanitized® and non-abrasive grass blades. These products are also a more environmentally friendly turf option since they offer SYNLawn’s exclusive plant-based EnviroLoc+™ backing system that replaces up to 60% of petroleum-based polyol with renewable soybeans.
Rooftop Landscaping installations need to complement other building materials in terms of design. The floor finishes of these installations are typically a fusion of synthetic turf, wood decking, and tile, which creates variations of surfacing textures and appealing aesthetics.
