Many London residents looking to make the most of their limited outdoor space are seeking an alternative to grass for their balconies or terraces. But what is the best option for a surface that will look good, yet also prove practical and hardwearing?
The capital has a population of around 8 million people, with nearly half of them living in apartments – more than seven times the proportion of flat-dwellers in England as a whole. A garden is a lack felt by many of those living in this type of accommodation. Not all Londoners with flats are fortunate enough to have balconies, or private or shared roof terraces. However, for those who do, artificial turf offers a way to create a beautiful outdoor space or rooftop garden.
Popular though balconies are, they can prove quite limited if they are your only outdoor space. Although you can put tables and chairs out, this in itself doesn’t provide a comfortable surface to sit or relax on when the sun is shining.
Fortunately, synthetic turf is the answer to this dilemma. It is highly versatile, suiting all outdoor spaces, and it presents the only alternative to grass in high-rise buildings where it isn’t possible to plant a traditional lawn. Dayco is not only experienced in artificial grass installation in London gardens, but also on terraces and balconies. So you can get a taste of the countryside wherever you live.

Appreciating Your Outdoor Space with Fake Turf for Roof Terraces or Balconies
If you live in a loft or flat, you may well pride yourself on fitting out your home with furniture, lighting and décor which bring out its qualities. The same design considerations can also be used to create your own garden area, making an outdoor space which is just as beautiful as indoors. Including fake turf will give you a space to relax in, where you can sit out, sunbathe or just appreciate the beauty of a green space in the city.
Quality artificial grass supplied by Dayco is highly realistic, so it provides an oasis in the heart of a city, making you feel that you really are in your own garden. However, maintenance is far more easy and less time-consuming than for a traditional lawn. As our turf is an alternative to grass, no mowing is involved. You can just give it a quick hose down to clean it or brush it, for example if you have spilled drinks or food on the surface.
Hardwearing artificial lawns will last a long time – so, even if you have a shared roof terrace with a lot of footfall, you don’t have to worry that it will wear out. Also, if your balcony is a suntrap, the turf will not be faded by the sunlight, because it is UV resistant.
Versatile and Beautiful
As expert artificial grass installers, Dayco can come up with a solution to suit any size of roof terrace, not just extra-large ones. Even if you think your balcony may be too small for a lawn, we can come up with a tailor-made solution which will make the optimum use of the space available and create your own green haven.
Another advantage is that our artificial grass is quick to supply and install, so it won’t be long before you are enjoying all the benefits of your outdoor area. We guarantee next-day delivery if you only want us to supply your synthetic turf. If you want us to install the artificial grass, our waiting list is normally just a few weeks, so you will not have to wait for the sort of time it takes for an ordinary lawn to take root and grow.
Versatility is yet another advantage of fake turf. Unlike a traditional lawn, artificial lawn turf can be installed on any surface – so, whether your roof terrace is lined with brick, tiles, concrete or metal, you can soon have grass on top of it.
As anybody with a balcony knows, you will use the space more if it is beautifully designed and inviting. So, as well as installing a fake lawn, it makes sense to treat yourself to attractive chairs or sun loungers, and bring in some plant pots or flower planters to add colour and excitement. Touches like these will ensure that it is hard to tear yourself away from your own mini-garden in the city.
Dayco has been supplying quality alternatives to grass to customers across London and the South East for more than 20 years. Our customers include households in Golders Green, Hampstead, Hendon, Enfield, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
