How to accent your artificial turf for an Instagram-worthy landscape

Artificial turf plays a key role in landscaping backyards, atriums, apartment courtyards and more in the desert Southwest. Artificial turf is a water-saving, low-maintenance alternative to grass, making it great for your Arizona landscaping clients.

However, just like if you have a landscape consisting only of natural grass, artificial turf on its own can look a bit plain. Incorporate a variety of accents such as statues, fountains, trees, shrubs and more to enhance the look of artificial turf.

Those looking for functional parts of landscaping can check out options to use pavers to create paths and patios. Arizona Turf Depot offers a variety of pavers to meet your landscaping clients’ needs.

Gazebos and pergolas make great shade structures as well to keep those walking areas usable for more of the year through protection from the sun, and patio furniture such as benches and tables can be placed underneath for seating and outdoor recreation.

For more appealing aesthetics, adding some shrubs, trees or other plants that don’t use much water to an Arizona artificial turf landscape complements the turf well. It adds pops of color and volume. While turf’s greenery draws the eye, plants add some height and bright colors to contrast against its flat shape.

If your clients are after a garden-like feel for their landscapes, water features make another great addition. Outdoor freestanding fountains are an affordable way to add tranquility with flowing water while minimizing the overall volume needed to keep them operating. With a variety of looks that include traditional European-style fountains and designs that look like pots pouring from one to the next, fountains offer freedom to customize how your clients want their landscapes to look.

Those seeking a more eye-catching water feature can hire a contractor to install custom ponds, larger fountains, waterfalls and more.

In a similar vein to fountains, statutes make a great option to draw the eye to focal points in a landscape. They’re a great chance for self-expression for specific styles; some clients may prefer a classic garden look with stone animals or mythical creatures, while others may go the opposite direction with abstract metal shapes. Metal sculptures can also embrace the earthy tones of the desert with a rusted look, while painted statutes can display shiny pops of color.
