What Is The Best Fake Grass For A Patio?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: March, 2021 - Modified: February, 2024

Many people opt for fake grass for patio settings, because it can provide the look and feel of grass underfoot without the work and maintenance that an authentic lawn requires. For instance, if the faux grass gets dirty, the area can just be swept off.

And don’t worry about pesky bugs and pests, as synthetic grass doesn’t provide the ideal environment for them like lawn does. Choosing synthetic grass for patio will also make your pets happy, as it offers a safe space for them when they feel like laying around out there with you, and unlike real grass, the artificial grass will look green and vibrant year round.

Even pet urine and waste will not discolor the fake grass for patio products at Greatmats. Real grass can wear down and become bare - especially when and if exposed to extreme temps and environmental factors. If it’s lush, vibrant grass that you want for your patio, artificial is the way to go.

Although Greatmats offers a variety of artificial grass for patio options, the following are among the best.
