10 Backyard Turf Ideas For Your Home

April 7, 2021

Having backyard turf is so much fun. It’s also practical, and there are tons of ways to incorporate backyard landscaping ideas on your property. From games to fake campfires and dinners outside, backyard turf facilitates all sorts of enjoyable activities. Artificial grass is also great for the kids, your pets, and provides a relaxing space. Best of all, turf landscaping is clean and requires very little maintenance.

1. Slip and Slide on Your Backyard Turf

A kids’ favorite! Bring out some lemonade and everyone will be happy. Avoid the headache of setting up a slip-and-slide on real grass and let your backyard turf do the work.

2. Outdoor Dinners

Perfect for all seasons in California. Synthetic grass offers a clean and consistent texture, and it’s easy to throw down blankets or move a table to the backyard. Compliment your new backyard landscaping by making your favorite dish and enjoy a wonderful meal outdoors.

3. Putting Greens

Want to practice your stroke? Look no further than your backyard. It can be a pain to put in real grass but not so on turf. The ball rolls smooth and true and you’ll ace those puts on the course with your friends in no time.

4. Work Stations on Your Backyard Turf

The pandemic has forced many to work from home. At Watersavers, we understand, and working outside can be a great way to clear your head and feel productive. With turf, you won’t have to worry about getting dirty or distracted. This is a more practical backyard landscaping idea and it can be a great way to get things done.

5. Backyard Dog Run

Dogs love to get outside and stretch their legs. Getting exercise and running around is a huge piece to their happiness. All owners want the best for their animals. So, treat Sally or Clifford! Backyard turf is clean and dry and dogs love playing on it. Also, they won’t get dirty paws or track mud into the house. Whew, don’t have to worry about that.

6. Star-Gazing

Ever wonder what’s really up there in the sky? Backyard turf is the perfect answer to laying on your back and looking up at the stars. Synthetic grass is super comfortable to lay on and even retains some warmth from the day’s sun. I bet you can see the Big Dipper.

7. Outdoor Baby Nursery

We know it’s tough to manage life and work and a newborn in the pandemic. Especially if it’s all inside! Backyard turf can be a safe space for babies and toddlers. The turf is soft, they won’t get dirty, and it’s easy to create a corral for them to play in.

8. Outdoor Workshop

Working on a new dresser? Or maybe a piece for your newborn’s nursery in the house? Ditch the garage and work on the turf outside! Wheel out a workbench and bring some tools. Turf provides a stable place to work without the hassle of dealing with natural sod and sprinklers.

9. Backyard Bookclub

Host a few friends (virtually) and discuss your favorite authors. Or, just gossip! Enjoy an afternoon on your backyard turf. Why not be outside?

10. Camping! At Home!

Love camping but want to stay close to home? Us too! We love setting up a fake campfire and sneaking out some s’mores from the kitchen. Pitch a tent, read some ghost stories, and feel just like you’re in nature.
