Long gone are the days when fake grass was that plastic stuff in the window at the butcher’s, or that lurid green stuff used for tennis courts and playgrounds.
Now artificial turf is a lifestyle choice rather than a cheap alternative to lawn, and it’s also a decorating material that’s used indoors and out.
It’s popular outdoors because modern products look like the real thing and feel good underfoot but without the maintenance needs.
Made from synthetic fibres, fake grass comes in different tones and piles, ranging from 9-35mm. It comes in tiles or in large pieces and either type can be used for these projects, with prices from $30 to $90.
