As synthetic grass booms in popularity, people are finding more and more uses for their favorite landscaping solution. One of the most popular ways to utilize turf, other than traditional landscaping, is to create a rooftop deck. One of the biggest modern landscaping trends today, especially in densely packed urban areas, is to install artificial grass on rooftops, terraces, and balconies. By taking advantage of turf’s low maintenance requirements and lightweight properties, developers can utilize every inch of outdoor space and create relaxing guest spaces with unbeatable views.
One of the biggest benefits of rooftop artificial grass installation is that it creates valuable outdoor space, a commodity that can be difficult to find in a big city. Places like Singapore, Shanghai, and Hong Kong are notorious for having densely packed housing which makes backyards and gardens few and far between. With space at such a premium, especially green space, finding new and unique ways to create usable outdoor space can improve your quality of life in the city or increase your property’s value. Allowing guests, tenants, and customers to soak in views of the city while enjoying a game of cornhole or letting their pets run around in a safe, enclosed space is a valuable commodity that will add a much-appreciated touch of luxury to any urban property.
Enhance a rooftop pool
If your new development features a luxurious rooftop pool, take it to the next level with an artificial grass pool deck. Synthetic turf is a functional decking alternative that looks great, absorbs water without issue, and is more comfortable to walk on than most hardscaping. With drainage capabilities of up to 700mm of water per hour per square metre, TigerTurf artificial grass products are well-suited to residential and commercial rooftop pool decks of all sizes.

Opting for synthetic turf for your rooftop versus natural greenery or hardscaping will help you to be more eco-friendly and save money in the long run. Whereas natural grass requires daily watering, weekly trimming, and other regular maintenance, synthetic turf for your roof deck is a low-maintenance option that will significantly reduce your landscaping costs each month by saving hundreds or thousands of litres of water. Conserving water in this way—not to mention eliminating the use of harmful CO2-emitting maintenance tools—will help you do your part to save the planet (and your wallet).
