Bold and innovative ways to use artificial turf in landscaping and design

Artificial Putting Green install

At Arizona Turf Depot, we wholesale artificial turf for use in a variety of landscaping projects. Whether it’s a backyard, an apartment common area, a commercial complex or recreational field, our warehouses in Mesa and Peoria (and opening soon in Nevada!) have a variety of synthetic grass options to suit the specifications of any project.

While turf is often used for lawns, restaurant patios, and putting greens, we suggest sharing with your customers some of these innovative uses for artificial turf as well. There are so many interesting possibilities for incorporating artificial turf in unexpected ways to homes, businesses, and landscapes.

Mini golf courses

While backyard putting greens are common, mini golf courses with holes using whimsical additions are a less common, but fun option. Start with several small putting greens, and then get creative by adding unique obstacles. We like loop-the-loops using pipe, or an animal sculpture’s mouth that takes the ball in and spits it out the other side. Add some more variety with sand traps or water features.

Synthetic turf offers all kinds of creative possibilities. You can use a variety of different styles of turf to create visually striking fairways and hazards. To further enhance a whimsical atmosphere, designers can incorporate oversized obstacles, like animal-shaped topiaries or inflatable obstacles. 

Walls and floors inside your home

Bring the outdoors inside with strategic placement of turf on walls, floors, entry ways, atriums, or conservatories. Transforming the interior spaces with artificial turf you can create a truly immersive experience that seamlessly blends the boundaries between indoor and outdoor environments. Imagine stepping into your home and being greeted by the vibrant, lush greenery that typically characterizes outdoor landscapes.

Using artificial turf on walls and floors offers several benefits by creating a visually stunning and eye-catching feature that adds a sense of natural beauty and tranquility to any space. The soft and vibrant texture of the turf can instantly uplift the atmosphere and create a refreshing ambiance that mimics the outdoors. It can be particularly appealing for nature enthusiasts who yearn for the soothing presence of greenery but may be limited in their ability to spend time outside.

Moreover, artificial turf on the walls and floors provides a tactile experience, allowing you to walk barefoot or lie down on a soft, grass-like surface indoors. This can be especially enjoyable for children who love the sensation of playing on grass. It also offers a unique opportunity for creative interior design, allowing designers to experiment with different patterns, textures, and color combinations to suit personal style and preferences.

Roof covering

If you want to create a feature straight out of a fantasy realm like The Shire, install artificial turf on a building’s roof. Adding turf to roofs can provide numerous benefits such as improved insulation, energy efficiency, stormwater management, and aesthetic appeal. (But do check with HOA and property managers first). Additionally, artificial turf on roofs can contribute to urban biodiversity by providing green spaces that attract and support wildlife, while mitigating the urban heat island effect and creating a more comfortable and sustainable urban environment.

Landscaping around to a natural-looking pool

Give a backyard the look of a natural swimming hole by skipping the pool deck material, installing some trees and other green plants, and painting the bottom and sides of the pool to look like a pond, or small lake. The backyard will look like a beautiful spot for swimming that would be found in nature, minus mysterious creatures in the water and a muddy pond bottom.

Turf is an excellent material to use next to all kinds of pool designs, making for a less slippery surface than concrete, decking or algae covered rocks in nature.

Clothes made from artificial turf

If you want to be a bright splash of green in a crowd or declare your love of nature, use artificial turf to make or cover clothing. Whether shirts, pants or even covering your shoes, artificial turf will be a unique fashion statement you won’t find on store shelves.
