If you are seeking new ideas for your rooftop garden or balcony, calling in an artificial grass company could be the answer. This especially applies if you live in London, which is a famously crowded capital city, with 8 million people living in only 3 million households.
For those who live in flats and are lucky enough to have a balcony or roof terrace, this additional space offers the chance to create an extra room, whether as a dining area or just a place of relaxation. You can even also turn it into a lush, green space, something which once seemed like an unattainable dream for people living in high-rise blocks. Today, that dream is no longer impossible and, with artificial turf, you can have a lawn even if your only outdoor space is a balcony.
Installing a fake lawn means that you can have all the comfort and beauty of a grassed area, wherever you live, without the hassle of maintaining it. An artificial grass company such as Dayco can also install your new turf in any space, as it can be easily fixed to all kinds of surfaces. Our experts will assess the area beforehand and explain to you exactly what is involved.
If you have a rooftop garden or balcony, it gives you a haven for relaxation and as many of these areas are suntraps, you can enjoy this space for most of the year. Here are some design ideas to make the most of this space with artificial grass.

A Space to Relax in – London life tends to be fast-moving and hectic, so sometimes it is nice to lie out in the sun and relax completely. One way to make your roof garden truly restful is to treat yourself to attractive sun loungers or reclining chairs, together with a strategically-placed sunshade or two. If the space is very limited, try some cushions or beanbags. And, of course, with fake grass underfoot, if you run out of chairs, people can just sit on the ground, with no danger of grass stains on their clothes.
A Space for Al Fresco Dining – If you have a large outdoor space you can create an area for entertaining, which need not be for summer only. It’s possible to extend the season by using patio heaters in the winter months, while, if the weather is quite the opposite and it’s too sunny, a gazebo could be used to provide protection. Even if you only have a small balcony, a table and chair set will give the opportunity to eat in the open air.
The Contemporary Rooftop Garden – Let your imagination run riot and create a futuristic roof garden which will be guaranteed to turn heads. A lawn installed by an artificial grass company like Dayco can be combined with an area of decking, minimalist furniture and lighting, and modern sculptures or giant pebbles. You could even create a patterned effect by using squares of artificial grass together with paving stones or squares of cement.
Another idea is to cut artificial turf into unusual shapes, creating patches of green in between areas of brick or stone. Or swathe it around pillars for yet another striking look.
Traditional Rooftop Garden – Maybe ultra-modern gardens are not for you, and you would prefer to create a cottage garden effect in the city. If so, you can create a traditional effect on your roof terrace by placing planters on your lawn, using natural materials such as wood and stone. Flowers, small bushes, oversized dark green plants and even miniature trees will all add to the effect. You can also grow herbs in large plant pots, and add them to your meals for a touch of home-grown luxury.
Shared Space – Sometimes a larger terrace or balcony isn’t just a haven for an individual or a family, but has to serve as a communal space, either for neighbours or for a commercial organisation. In this type of situation, the best idea is to come up with a design that will appeal to many different people who may use the area at different times. A lawn area will give versatility and visual appeal, while two or three different types of chairs and tables offer the option to eat and drink or just relax in the open air.
