The small space between this fence has a nice piece of astroturf. This is a perfect use of astroturf. Lawn care can be particularly tricky along fences and walls, but there is no need for concern when you are dealing with astroturf.
A small balcony has been converted into an oasis by adding lots of plants in wooden containers, ceramic pots, railing planters, etc. There is still enough place for the family to sit outside and spend time alone or with each other.
Artificial grass has come a long way since the first AstroTurf carpeted the Houston Astrodome in 1966. With a drought underway in California, it's no wonder I'm noticing more homes with fake turf in my neighborhood. Or not noticing: I just learned that one neighbor (whose yard I've always admired) actually replaced her lawn with artificial turf several years ago. How did fake grass get so good at fooling us?
