Artificial Grass: An Outdoor Decorating Trend

Artificial grass, faux grass, fake grass, synthetic turf… whatever you call it, it’s an outdoor trend. We certainly noticed it in our popular Patio Style Challenge series with three of our guest contributors using artificial grass in clever and stylish ways.

Above, popular DIY blogger, Ashley of Sugar & Cloth, created a clean and modern look in her urban backyard. When guests walk through the fence gate, they’re greeted not only with lots of stylish planters and greenery, but also with a unique pathway. Ashley inverted the old pebble walkway idea and placed squares of artificial grass as “stepping stones” through her backyard. So stylish!

Crafter-extraordinaire, Amber of Damask Love, created a gorgeous space on a super small, urban apartment balcony. Amber warmed up the cold concrete floor with 60 square feet of faux grass. Now when Amber walks outside, from the Adirondack chair, to the bar cart, to the bistro table, it really feels like she’s walking outside! (Without the dirt.)

Atlanta-based design blogger Kristin Jackson writes the wildly popular blog The Hunted Interior. She always wows us with fresh ideas and unique DIYs. This year Kristin completed a stunning backyard makeover (or should we call it a complete backyard 180?) complete with a DIY bocce ball court with artificial grass. Let’s be honest, it will definitely the star of all backyard parties this summer!
