The best synthetic grass for Houston TX yards shouldn’t just look good. There should be many things: a place to relax, a spot to entertain guests and friends, the ideal spot for kids to play.

You can do this by dividing your artificial lawn into zones. It doesn’t matter if you have a big or small space – give every square inch a purpose.

The final layout will depend on how you want to use the space. Ask yourself these questions to get started:

  • What backyard activities do you enjoy the most?
  • Is there anything you wish you could do or add to your backyard?
  • How does the current layout of your backyard limit your activities?
  • How many people will you typically have in your backyard at one time?
  • What mood are you trying to set in your backyard?

Once you know what activities are important to you, it will be easier to create the perfect backyard layout. Here are some zone recommendations:

Entertainment Zone with Synthetic Grass

This is the heart of your artificial lawn, where friends and family gather for good times. Consider features like a fire pit, an outdoor bar/kitchen, a dining/seating area and a lounge zone. You can also make it as simple as you like – a small table and some chairs or benches will do.

Safety tip: Keep grills, fire pits and other “hot” features away from your artificial turf installation in Houston TX. Place them on hardscape or a few feet away. While synthetic grass isn’t flammable, embers can melt the fibers.

Play Zone

This is the space where kids can play, run around and have fun. Look for items like a trampoline, sandbox, swing sets – even if you have limited space, consider all-in-one play sets for the kiddos to use.

Garden Zone

If you have a green thumb, the garden zone is where to let it flourish. The garden zone is versatile; combine it with your seating area if you have a small yard or make it a larger zone all on its own. Aside from plants, vegetables and flowers, you can also include garden art, seating areas and water features.

Tip: Use raised planters and pots for your garden. It’s easier to move them around if you want to move things around.

Pet Zone

Our furry friends deserve an awesome zone, too! A dog run is one of the most popular features for this area – it keeps pets contained while still giving them enough room to play and run around. You can also combine the pet zone with your garden or play zones, depending on how much space you have. And since it’s made of pet turf, you won’t have to worry about clean-up and stinky odors.

If you’re bored with your current backyard space, change things up! Try one or more of these zones to create an outdoor living environment that’s interesting and functional.

You can also combine the zones to suit your needs – for example, combine your lounge and garden zones so you can relax while enjoying the flowers.

More Tips:

  • Start with a blank slate.

    When visualizing your new layout, it helps to start with a blank slate. Remove all furnishings and decor from your artificial grass installation in Houston, then stand at one end of the space. From there, think about what you would want in your ideal backyard.

  • Look for multifunctional furniture.

    Benches with hidden storage. Extendable outdoor tables. A mini jungle gym that doubles as a swing set and slide. This way, you get to conserve space and maximize your usable area.

  • Think about maintenance.

    The more zones you have, the more upkeep they will need if you still have a natural lawn.

    Be prepared to mow around all your lawn features (seating, tables, decor etc.), to deal with mud and insects and if you have pets, the foul odors and mess.
