What Is The Best Fake Grass For A Patio?

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

Many people opt for , 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 5 are among the best:
  1. La Jolla Artificial Turf Roll
  2. Artificial Grass Turf UltimateGreen
  3. Catalina Artificial Turf Roll
  4. Coastal Cut Artificial Grass Roll
  5. Countryside Artificial Grass Turf Roll
Each of these faux grass for patio products will help transform a boring, cold, outdoor space into an attractive and comfortable one that will look and feel much better than common concrete slabs or other ideas you may have previously thought you were limited to if authentic lawn is less than ideal in your space.
