We saw the other day how it has been scientifically proven that green makes people happier in your home.

And one of the most beautiful and natural ways we can add green to a home is nature: with indoor or outdoor plants and, if we have land, with a beautiful and well-groomed lawn.

But unfortunately, many of us live in apartments, where we have no land, large or small; only and most terrace or balcony. True?

So the solution passes install artificial grass on the terrace or balcony. Creating your own green urban oasis.

Well, let’s first look at some photos of terraces and balconies with artificial grass to inspire you and see the potential of grass and how you can transform your terrace, and then we’ll move on to tips for installing, caring for and maintaining artificial grass, to make our terrace or balcony look beautiful like the ones we will see right now.

If you use a balcony to cultivate your own urban garden, artificial grass will create a more pleasant atmosphere, right?

After seeing these inspiring terraces and balconies with artificial grass, let me share tips for installation and maintenance.

How to install artificial grass on a tiled deck

It is generally on balconies and terraces covered with stone tiles, and placing artificial grass on this type of floor is very simple. In this Leroy Merlin video you can see what it is easy to install artificial grass on stone or compact earth:

– The first thing is to measure so we know the meters of grass roll we will need.

– When we roll the roller, we unroll it on the terrace in order to make small traces with the cutter where it is necessary to cut. For example: a pole, protrusion or any other obstacle.

– After we make the marks, we roll the roller and cut where we marked, with the necessary depth to overcome various obstacles.

– Now let’s stick the first tape. Each strip is approximately 2 meters wide. If the terrace or balcony is wider, we need another strip.

– The strips are glued to the ground using self-adhesive tapes that are placed on the ground, and the grass glue is placed on top and then the grass itself is glued. In these places it is convenient to place the weight so that the grass sticks properly to the tape.

– It is recommended to leave half a centimeter of the distance between the cut and the cut, in order to create a kind of expansion joint. Then the separation is not visible, because the grass completely covers it. To do this, we need to glue the strips we cut in the same direction.

It’s not hard to install artificial grass at all, is it?

Cleaning and maintenance of artificial grass on the terrace

Cleaning of artificial grass from the terrace.

– As an occasional cleanser, we can give him a hose with water. That way we can clean it and keep it cool, especially in the summer.

– We also have to brush it occasionally. With a long brush made of plastic bristles. With this, in addition to cleaning it, we achieve that the blades of the synthetic grass are raised again and return to their initial position, making the grass look like the first day.

– And, about twice a year, it should be vacuumed.

Cleaning the surface of artificial grass is very easy and fast. It won’t waste much time and we can have the grass in good condition.

Maintenance of the artificial grass terrace.

Protect it from the sun. Today’s lawns are ready to withstand both high and low temperatures. Regardless, it is convenient to protect it from the sun as much as we can, so it will last longer before it becomes hard and dry.

Like I said, artificial turf is mostly ready to withstand high and low temperatures, but it doesn’t hurt to give it a hand to withstand a few years in the best possible condition.

Clean the feces. It is very likely that you will find bird droppings on the lawn. If this is the case, clean them as soon as possible as they are corrosive and will eventually leave a mark on the lawn if they are not cleaned. If you do this occasionally, just use soap and water to finish rinsing with plenty of water to remove traces of soap.

For other types of more permanent stains, such as perhaps paint, we can try a solution with 3% ammonia and water.

If we use solvents or stripping agents, it will be an exceptional measure and always in a moderate way, as these products damage the lawn. Best, water.

Fix small omissions. A small flaw on the artificial grass canvas is nothing at first, but in the end it always gets worse, causing the canvas to crack. If you notice a small flaw, fix it before it gets worse. You can use putty or grass silicone to seal the damage.

Where to buy artificial grass?

Apart from, for example, in physical stores like Leroy Merlin, we can also order it online.

If you allow me to advise you, the ARKmat brand is an excellent artificial grass. ARKmat is dedicated to the construction and design of all types of floors, and they specialize in artificial grass floors.

I do not advise you to buy a bad lawn, because the saying: Everything cheap is expensive, Is 100% filled with bad artificial grass over time, and not for long.

The one we see has a good price, with a realistic finish to the touch and sight, durable, resistant and comes from the company ARKmat. You can read the opinions of the people who installed it to confirm that what I say is true.

It is available in different finishes: with long, medium and short knives, and we can order exactly the required scales. You can buy it here on Amazon.

With these ideas and tips, we’ve seen how easy it is to install artificial grass on our patio or balcony and keep it in good condition, so tell me, do you dare? If you have any questions or suggestions, I will read you in the comments.
